Is anodised aluminum any good?

Kajikit | Jan 29, 200703:47 PM     47

I always thought stainlessteel was the way to go, but I'm open to other options. Albertsons is having a special promotion where you collect their stamps with purchase and then get free cookware when you have enough... It seems sturdy enough on the display (I hefted them to check their weight) and I'm tempted to get them because they're all-metal so I could put them in the oven (I've never ever had a pan that could go from stovetop to oven!) It SAYS it's oven-safe, dishwasher safe etc, but is it really? Is anodised aluminum safe? (I thought aluminum was supposed to be a kitchen bad guy...) Opinions please...
