Is it safe to use Oxiclean Free on a metal brew pot? I know that rinsing thoroughly is required after using Oxiclean Free. Is it safe to let the brew pot sit in an Oxiclean Free solution overnight?

Which metal is the pot made from? – mdma Dec 28 '12 at 9:16
To expand a bit on the previous comment, if the metal is stainless steel, it's fine. If it's aluminum, don't do it. – Denny Conn Dec 28 '12 at 16:43

I have been using oxiclean for years and it hasn't been a problem. My brew pot is aluminum and I haven't had any adverse affects.
