You can use aluminum as long as it's anodized or non-stick coated.

Bare aluminum, cast iron and tin are considered reactive.

Stainless, non-stick, ceramic, glass and enamel coated cast iron are non-reactive.

tin is not reactive for cooking, but long term storing of acidic foods in tinned cans was sometimes a problem years ago. Carbon steel is highly reactive and leaves a very metallic taste with acidic foods. Stainless is fine.
