    Hello! I have this set, and I’m not sure what these numbers mean. I only use it on special occasions, but I’m concerned about the effect it may be having on my kids!

      Hi Mindy,
      Dishware like this is not regulated. The amount of lead that is considered toxic in a child’s toy coating is 90 parts per million lead. The levels on this casserole exceed 90,000 parts per million lead, plus it also tests positive with a swab. In the case of vintage pyrex – I would either toss it or put it on a shelf as a decorative item. It is not a food-safe dish, especially when children are part of your environment.

    I have the same brown pot behind it. Is it safe for me to continue cooking in?

      I would like to know about the brown crock pot in the background as well! My mother has been cooking with this for ages!
