Tagines & Lead
I picked up an Italian-made tagine (De Silva brand) at Home Goods on clearance for $14. It's glazed inside and out. I thought glazing meant it was for serving only, but the directions indicate that it's to be used for cooking on the stove, in the microwave, it.
I understand that there are lead issues with some tagines and I did found a few old threads about this brand of cookware. But it's hard to tell if it's really a problem, or at least was a problem then. Cookware from this company is apparently readily available at similar discount stores. I could pick up a lead test kit, but it's probably more expensive than the tagine itself!
I'm not generally alarmist, but should I simply return it? I don't need a tagine, but I thought it might be fun to use, and this one is a great size for two people.
