2013 Riedel Crystal Goblet

2013 Riedel Crystal Goblet:  300,000 ppm lead.

Lead can begin leaching into the contents of a leaded crystal goblet immediately. The more acidic the contents of the glass the more quickly lead will leach into the beverage and the longer the beverage spends in the goblet the more lead will leach. [Wine, juice & champagne are all very acidic.  Even water and milk have some degree of acidity.] Luckily earlier this year (2017) we learned that Riedel is now making lead-free crystal goblets and they are even available at Target and fairly inexpensive too! [You can see our testing of those goblets on a video here!]

Here’s a post with more information about leaded crystal.
