My grandmother gave me a pitcher and cups made from aluminum from the 50's there are in great condition and was wondering if it is safe to use them. No one in my family knows grandma said she has used them for years so just curious.

thanks in advance

anodized aluminum? ~
very cool. safe to use. but not for strongly acidic drinks like Kool-Aide, makes it taste funny.

Safety tip; not microwaveable...

Also they sweat like a sonofagun with cold liquids, use a coaster!

We had those when I was a kid growing up. They were fun and we had no problems with them although I didn't drink alcohol yet back then.Enjoy them. A Treasure for sure.
