“Detox” your baking equipment before the holidays! More Lead-free Amazon picks for August 2023
For those new to this website:
Tamara Rubin is a multiple-Federal-award-winning independent advocate for childhood Lead-poisoning prevention and consumer goods safety, and a documentary filmmaker. She is also a mother of Lead-poisoned children (two of her sons were acutely Lead-poisoned in 2005). Since 2009, Tamara has been using XRF technology (a scientific method used by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission) to test consumer goods for toxicants (specifically heavy metals — including Lead, Cadmium, Mercury, Antimony, and Arsenic). All test results reported on this website are science-based, accurate, and replicable. Items are tested multiple times to confirm the test results for each component tested. Tamara’s work was featured in Consumer Reports Magazine in February of 2023 (March 2023 print edition).
August 15, 2023 — Tuesday
Hi all! Following up on yesterday’s Lead-free Amazon Picks post, I spent a good part of yesterday researching and picking out my top Lead-free choices (currently available on Amazon) for baking… with the logic being that those of you who are already looking forward to (planning ahead for?) the upcoming holiday season might appreciate the opportunity to take advantage of adding some of these choices to your kitchen early (as most of the choices on this list are quite inexpensive — and some are also on sale now!).

Thank you again for supporting this work in this way! For those new here, I share about Lead-free products and specifically share links to these products on Amazon — not because I want to (in fact, I actually HATE recommending products!) but because Lead Safe Mama readers continually ask me to and want both specific product recommendations as well as to help support our programs with additional revenue from their purchases! Otherwise, our primary “revenue streams” are first and foremost income from speaking events, private and corporate consulting, training events for government agencies, medical schools, and other public health professionals, advertising revenue from the website, and (currently just two) direct affiliates relationships like Naturpedic and Solidteknics. With the exception of those very select few relationships with companies whose exceptionally clean products I personally use, love, and have vetted, I am mostly “in the business” of telling people what NOT to use or buy! Lol.
I also wanted to take a moment to share here that the Lead Safe Mama website passed 20,000,000 unique all-time views the other day. Click the image below to see more details related to that (including a chart of the readership for the website broken out by month and summarized by year, going back to January 2014!). TWENTY MILLION (wow)! Thank you for YOUR role in helping make that happen!
Finally, just a heads-up and a reminder that — again — “you heard it here first.” The reporting we did in March of this year (2023) about exposed Lead found in the popular “Stanley Quencher” and related products (with the commonly-seen failure of the bottom disc that covers a high-Lead seal) finally hit the news this week! (There was, as usual, no mention of our work — but that’s what we have come to expect from the mainstream media!)
*(If you do not typically shop on Amazon, many of these are also choices you can find in your local brick-and-mortar stores.)
P.S. The October 2023 Lead Safe Mama Travel Schedule will be finalized today (you can see the draft schedule below). This is your last chance to book a home consultation with me for October (anywhere in the United States or within the vicinity of Toronto, Canada!). The next Lead Safe Mama USA tour will likely be in June of 2024.
