Examples of Aluminum Utensils

Aluminum utensils are sturdy pieces of kitchen equipment that can last for a long time. There are a wide variety of examples of aluminum utensils, which divide roughly into three groups: eating utensils, stirring utensils and cooking utensils.

Aluminum utensils are easy to clean.

Each of these utensils has its own specific purpose and works in tandem with the others.

Eating

Examples of aluminum utensils for eating are the basics: knives, forks, spoons. Steak knives can also be made of aluminum.

Aluminum plates and bowls also exist. However, these are less common and are less pleasing to the eye than the standard ceramic plates and bowls.

Stirring and Cutting

Utensils used for stirring and cutting come in wide variety. Knives are an excellent example, and spatulas also can be made of aluminum. The same goes for graters, measuring spoons, measuring cups, bottle openers and can openers. The list goes on--essentially any stirring, opening or cutting implement can be made of aluminum.

Cooking

Rounding out aluminum's uses, there is cooking itself. Nonstick pans can be made of aluminum, as can pots for boiling water or simmering stews. Aluminum lids also exist, as do aluminum baking trays.
