vitrified unglazed pottery and food

Recommended Posts

Little confused by the syntax . . . unsafe to use unglazed or safe to use unglazed? What kind of food -- dry (breads, etc) or liquid (soups, sauces, etc)?

 

There have been a few posts lately about using unglazed for food . . . the thought of a knife or spoon scraping across an unglazed surface is giving me flashbacks school days and fingernails skreeching across the blackboard.

*laughs* Oh, man! You just made my skin crawl... O_o

 

I use unglazed ^6 clay, fired to ^6, for salt piggies. Seems to work pretty well. I also use the same clay only fired to ^06 (more absorbent that way) for sugar keepers - also works well. So while they're not in contact with liquids, they're also not being used with utensils.

Not everyone uses metal eating implements, nor does everyone use forks, spoons, and knives.

Funny question. Isn't that what Pampered Chef's ware is? Personally, I like my ware glazed. However, they offer a lot of ovenware that is not glazed and sell it as food safe. Maybe worthy of some investigation?
