Default Re: Why are aluminum pizza peels common over stainless?

One of the greatest exposures to aluminum is from deoderants. There are deoderants available with no aluminum in them. Alzheimer's runs in my family and tests show that my body has a very high level of aluminum, so I limit my exposure. Environmental factors from living in northern NY state for the first 50 years of my life probably contributed to it. I play safe even though a direct link has not been proven.
I do see why an aluminum would be used to minimize the weight when placing and moving pizza.

Thanks, I having been using Tom's of Maine (Aluminum free for years). I've even switched water bottles for the family from aluminum to stainless. Health food stores (we eat organic) always stress Aluminum free and after hearing about pots & pans years ago, I just assumed the links had been proven. Consumer safety has been neglected in the last couple years, and like you I prefer to play it safe (especially since I have young children) but as was stated previously, the utensils are used for only a short period and the firebrick surface contains it as well but have been used for generations of baking.

Thank you for your comment.
