What did your research reveal about the potential for making a saucepan out of, for example, sodium metal?

Think about the purpose of a saucepan; then think about the properties of alkali metals (Group 1 elements).

Why group 1 elements would not be a suitable choice to make saucepans from. Firstly, it’s because it’s too soft. It can not be kept in it’s shape like the normal saucepan. Secondly, it has a low melting point. It will just melt before you put anything in it.
