This slow cooker tested positive for lead. Anything above 1.0 is dangerous and this one tested at 4.6:
The Rival Co.
Sedalia, MO. 65301
Rival crock-pot stoneware slow cooker (It has photos of herbs on the outside)
The stoneware insert is forrest green in color.
Model number 3755
Control number 3755 003 0424
120 Volt 50-60HZ A.C. only 225-275 Watts
It does say Made in the USA on the base but not on the removeable ceramic painted oval insert!
...are plastic bags that go inside your crockpot. Food goes inside that and doesnt directly contact the pot. It takes slightly longer for food to cook, but no one looks to crockpots for speed anyway. You could try to reuse them I guess. I havent. Anyway, it takes away the fear of lead leaching out of the glaze.

le crueset makes fantastic cast iron pots/dutch ovens that are enameled and so pretty and cook so well on the stove top. plus cooking in cast iron is great for pregnant/nursing moms and kids. ...
