"Der Tisch ist nicht aus Eisen sondern aus Kunststoff." is evaulated as wrong even though "Kunststoff" appears as an alternative to "Plastik".

    That's accepted now (although it needs a comma).

    The dictionary that you see when you hover over words is pretty terrible. If you really want to know what words are for what definition, then use a legit dictionary.

    The original family name was Eisenhauer (an iron miner), not Eisenhower, which is a result of English "transliteration".

    Do you actually need the second "aus"? The original English sentence would sound OK without the second "from".
