Small Blue Ceramic Le Creuset Custard Pot: 36,900 ppm Lead

Blue (outside glaze): 36,900 ppm Lead.
Cream (inside glaze): 128 ppm Lead.

Note: this is a REAL Le Creuset miniature pot, a ceramic version made to look like their cast iron ones. It is made to be used in the oven as a custard pot (to bake a single-serving custard in) or for similar purposes. It is not a knockoff.

Here’s my post reviewing the concerns about lead in food-usage pottery: LINK

In general I do not recommend Le Creuset. While they may have certain colors and certain designs that are Lead-Free and/or Cadmium-Free, the fact that they have both historically and recently produced both ceramic products and enamelware products that are positive for fairly high levels of Lead and/or Cadmium yet never made a public statement about the potential concerns for these toxic heavy metals in either the products, the manufacturing stream or the sourcing of these materials… makes them a very irresponsible company in my book.  

Please consider not ever purchasing something from this company.

I have often entertained the idea of staging a formal boycott of their brand and their products actually. Read more about my concerns HERE.

Thank you for reading and for sharing my posts.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

    have you tested any of the creuset enameled cast iron stock pots? i’m assuming this is ceramic vs. enameled cast iron?

      Yes – there are several under the “Le Creuset” category of my site, just click the word “Le Creuset” near the top of this post in the list of keywords.
