So dh got a bag from a coworker. The directio s say no metal im guessing this includes foil. It has to be baked by tomorrow anf our roads are horrible from the storm.

I only have metal and foil. My only glass pan vanished at dhs work party.

Is there harm in using foil? I dont want to ruin it or waste it

It means no metal measuring utensils etc.  It can affect the fermented batter.

No metal in the batter during the pre baking days.  It will affect the fermenting process.  You are fine to bake it in a metal pan.  At that point you don't need for the cultures to keep growing.  Just don't touch the left over "starter" batter with metal or it will die off and the next batches won't ferment correctly.

Use plastic or wooden spoons for the batter while it still ha the portions that ou will save for starter.  Once you have the starter portions pulled out, you can use whatever you want to on the portion of the batter that you will be baking.
