Please note: In general, dishes like this cannot be tested with a home test kit like a LeadCheck swab. To better understand why that is the case, please click this link.

People often express concern for products from the Dollar (type) stores [Dollar Tree, Dollar Store, Dollar General, 99cent Store] and usually I explain to them that BECAUSE these types of stores were cited for several significant Lead-violations years ago, in my experience the products they sell have become much safer in recent years (if only from a Lead perspective.)

    Hi Tamara,

    Today I just purchased a Royal Norfolk WHITE bowl… I see that you have mixed results on these types of bowls. Have you tested the white ones? I will return it if you recommend I do so. I’m actually looking for a small bowl for my bird’s seed or fruits/vegetables and this is the perfect size. It actually looks like Corningware in a way but when I peeled the tag off it said Royal Norfolk.
