Hi I bought what appears to be one of these products, it looks like a frying pan with handle, clay bottom, dark brown glaze on sides and orange interior, “albisola, 24 made in Italy” on the bottom.

Should I immerse this in water since I don’t know what the previous owner did with it?

Would it be lead free being a possibly older version of this product?

I’d be grateful for your opinion since I have health issues and want to use a toxin free way to prepare my food. thanks

Sorry for the slow response but I have closed the Your Smart Kitchen store and do not look at this often. To clean I would suggest soaking in water and the using a soft scrub brush to clean off anything on the surface. You can use baking powder or Bartender’s Friend to clean stubborn bits.

I should not have any lead in the clay. The type of clay was discontinued in the early 60s.

I am not familiar with your particular product but all clay bakers with or without the ceramic glaze interiors are terrific for health cooking.
