Interesting. You're cooking with raw aluminum. Do you notice any off flavors or colors with acidic ingredients?

No. But I never thought about it either. Might there be any issue?
I use this pan the absolute most of any pan in the kitchen.
Hence, the wear.

As yo may have guessed from my post, cooking acidic ingredients in raw aluminum pots can result in off flavors or colors.

Costco.com doesn't necessarily carry the same stuff as the stores. In fact, different stores have different inventories. I have often heard others talk about a specific item and not found it at my Costco.

My MIL used to use metal utensils with her non-stick pans. Lots of the non-stick was scratched off but she kept using it. We asked her boys if they thought she was cooking with lots of pepper. (black specks throughout the food.)
