      Here is a link to consumer reports on available lead testing kits that you could use to test your cookware:
      There are probably differences in lead content due to Deppeeka subcontracting and some items being from other manufactuers.
      I would suggest each item be tested before using whatever the supposed source.

      Too late for us as well, as we have cooked food in these for a couple of
      years now. What is Germany's lead standard compared to that of the USA?
