My friend just bought me some very heavy white square dishes made in china. Do they contain lead? They are dishwasher and microwave safe, it says on bottom.

How does one determine the lead content amount found in ceramic mugs made in China? If it is too toxic to use? By what standard does the US govenment measure this?

I am so glad there is a thread on this. I WILL NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM CHINA. I recently asked for a cookware set for Christmas (Rachel Ray) not thinking about it myself, my husband said if it's made in China I am not buying it for you. We looked online at Williams & Sonoma and found a 15 piece calphalon cookware set made in the USA. That's what I got for Christmas this year. I returned a few knives that I got for Christmas that my sister in law bought me (also by rachel ray)made in China. I decided I would get something else, try finding made in the USA products in Bed, Bath and beyond is impossible!!! I finally found a cutting board, and a plastic container for cereal made in the USA. I liked Oxo Good Grips but it's made in China so that was out. We got rid of our old flatware that my parents had bought us from HSN (made in China) and we went online and found made in the USA flatware. It is service for 12 and we paid over $250.00 but it was well worth it. Most of the stuff I will not buy made in China is cookware, flatware or anything that involves food and my husband won't buy tools made in China. I recently checked my cabinets and my dishes are made in China but I got those 8 years ago and was not as concerned about stuff made in China. I found a dinnerware set at Williams Sonoma made in Italy and hand painted in Sicily and another made in france so that might be an option. Toys made in china too I won't buy but that's kind of hard not to find toys that aren't made there. people look at you strange when you ask them if their product is made in china. Rubbermaid products are also made in the USA. I say keep the money here where it belongs and Buy only USA products if you can. I asked for new cookie sheets for Christmas and told my mother in law don't buy it if it's made in China. She was like "why". Anyway she did find a cookie sheet made by Analon (USA made) Also I find stuff made in China to be cheap quality and usually cheap priced, especially those gimmiks advertized on TV. I have those Miriacle blade knife sets (Made in China) I plan to get rid of those and buy the J.A. Henckels knife set (german made) It may cost more but I'd rather not give China my money. Ok I am done ranting.

When I got married the first time my mom bought me dishes in the Tea Rose pattern and they were made in the USA. When I got married a second time, my new husband wanted to change patterns and they were made in China and not the same quality as they were when they were made in the US. They only lasted 6 months and they started to chip and crack. The glaze is coming off. I really wish they would go back to being made in the US.

This is why I love my Fiestaware. Made in the U.S.A. and lead-free. (They're also really pretty and have such fun, bright colors, which is a plus, too.)

I even bought extra Fiesta bowls and use them for my cats' food and water.

I usually eat straight outta the frying pan.....I'm good.

I have a crockpot with a white pot........made in China, guess that is probably toxic?

Is it lead when you see spider like cracks in ceramic mugs?

I believe that dishes from China most likely have lead in them.

Probably due to the glaze and the ceramic underneath it repeatedly contracting and expanding at slightly different rates, not lead content.
