Tin lined copper roasting pan

cavazos | Mar 13, 2012 06:07 PM

I started to roast a chicken in a tin-linned copper pan at 475 degrees before reading here that tin melts at 450. After about 15 minutes at that temperature, I turned it down to 375. There is some lemon juice in there, so it's not completely dry. But I'm worried that the tin leached into the food. Should I just throw it out and start over?
