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.
