Lead Free Mixing Bowls…

stainAs many of my friends, followers and readers know already most of the vintage dishware and kitchenware I have tested has tested positive for lead with an XRF instrument.

Unfortunately many new pieces will also have lead at high levels, especially if they are ceramic or enamel coated in any way. [Highly decorated and colorful kitchenware may also test positive for high levels of cadmium and arsenic among other heavy metals.]

The level of lead that is considered safe for an item intended for children is anything UNDER 90 ppm lead.  Dishware and Kitchenware is not regulated in the same way (as items intended for children) and often has lead in the many hundreds to 10,000 ppm range or sometimes even higher.

My overall argument (as a mother of lead poisoned children) is that lead is one of the most potent neurotoxins known to man and has no place in our kitchens, even in trace amounts.

As a result  – and in response to other posts on this site that share items with high lead, below I am sharing some lead-free choices for mixing bowls, as alternatives to the heavily leaded vintage Pyrex, Fire King (and other brands) that I have shared in other posts.

pyrexI recommend the following items as they are the same as (or similar to) the mixing bowls I have in my kitchen, bowls I have tested with an XRF and found to be lead-free.

The great thing is that these items are also fairly inexpensive (as well as being very safe choices for your family!)

Thanks for reading!  Happy shopping! And, as always, please let me know ifyou have any questions.

Affiliate link disclosure: If you choose to purchase any items after clicking the Amazon links above, Amazon pays me a small kick back as a thank you for sending business their way. It doesn’t cost you anything extra and helps support this website, allowing me to keep sharing information about childhood lead poisoning prevention (as well as making it possible for me to keep sharing about safe products for your home and family) ... Sharing this information in turn helps families everywhere protect their children from potential environmental toxicity in their homes. I only link to products that are the same as (or very similar to) ones that I either have direct personal experience with in my home or that I have personally tested with an XRF Instrument and found to be lead-safe or lead-free.

    Hi Tamara,

    Thank you so much for the work you are doing! I’m replacing kitchen items and mixing bowls are on my list.

    Am I missing the webpage and links on recommended cookware such as a pot and skillet?
