I was in TJ Maxx last week and picked up a 4 quart oval covered baker made in Italy by Terre D'Umbria for $20. [The LC model is $90] Following its instructions, I soaked it in hot soapy water and then put in dishwasher before first use. I decided to use it for no-knead bread. I pre-heated the baker and was removing it to place the dough and noticed a white powdery substance on the outside of the lid. The inside of the lid was as was the inside of the baker, clean. Long story short, a web search informed me that that substance on the outside of the lid was undoubtedly -- lead -- leaching from the glaze. Luckily none of it touched my bread which was encased in two layers of parchment. I am returning this to TJ Maxx and have contacted them to remove this product from their shelves. Has anyone else had this issue?
