Lead Safe Mama readers direct and fund the testing of consumer goods that is reported on this blog. What this sometimes means is that when there is a very popular product making its way around the Internet I usually get a LOT of requests to test that specific product. Then (normally) I will post out to my readers and ask them to donate (chip-in financially) to help cover the cost of procuring and testing the product, so I can report the test results here on the blog (so that anyone interested has free access to independent test results [unbiased, purely science-based, and independent of corporate funding or influence] for that specific consumer good.)
This is what has happened with the Always Pan!
I had so many readers asking about the Always Pan that I started a little fundraiser, and 12 of my readers chipped in something to help cover the cost of purchasing and testing one of these pans. Since many of the Always Pan’s popular colors were sold out (or had a long delay in shipping — months out) we chose to purchase the “Lavender” version of the pan. The images on this page are screenshots of that pan from the Always Pan website. If you are new to the blog, please click this post to learn more about the quantitative test results (and the testing methodology) for the testing reported here on this blog.
So when will the test results be available?
The pan was received and the (science-based, accurate, replicable) XRF test results (sharing the total content for XRF-detectable metals) will be posted on the Lead Safe Mama blog sometime around midnight tonight – Monday, December 7, 2020 (I am working on finishing writing the post right now.) Please stand by and – if you want to be among the first to have this information – please follow & like Lead Safe Mama on Facebook, and follow Lead Safe Mama on Twitter and Instagram!
Thank you so much to ALL of my readers for supporting this Lead-poisoning prevention (and consumer goods safety) advocacy work in this way! When you share the posts on this blog you are sharing important information with your friends and family, but you are also helping to directly support the work of this blog — as the advertising on the blog also helps to cover the costs of the work reported here.
Looked at some Corell dishes on the over stock dishes on your Referred Website one was from 1997 all dates which you said have lead! ???
I don’t referral’s to over stock – that must be something that google picked out for you based on your search history.

Hello Tamara I’m having a difficult time selecting lunch containers for my kids school lunch. Have you tested Planetbox, Bentogo or Yumbox? What lead safe brands do you recommend for kids lunch containers? And What do you use for kids lunch? thanks 🙂

Just found your website because my 2-year-old grandson tested positive for lead 🙁 We have been home-testing everything (furniture and toys). Had no idea we needed to test dishes and pots and pans as well. All so scary. We use Le Creuset pots, some old some new. We collect vintage restaurant Diner Ware and use them every day….is there lead in those plates as well.
Thank you for all the research you have done.
Your vintage dishes could very well be the source. Have you looked them up on the site? Put the brand name or the pattern name in the search bar. If you cannot find it on the website – email me with a photo.
