  • Non-reactive to what?

  • Acidic foods, like lemon juice or vinegar. I want to make homemade ricotta cheese and you need a non-reactive pot with a heavy bottom. One poster said that non-reactive means not aluminum and not copper. The heavy bottom helps the curds to not burn. I have one aluminum pot, and the rest are non-stick.

  • If the nonstick coating is intact, it would be non reactive
