Default Re: Need Input on Lead Testing.

A youtube video happened to surface on my recommended list that shows 3M lead test sticks being used on an unseasoned pot suspected of lead contamination. It didn't appear any measures were taken prior to address surface oxidation, but the test stick didn't appear to pick up any color from it, either. If that's a concern, I'd dry the stripped pan as thoroughly as possible in the oven, let it cool, wipe off any flash rust in a few areas as much as possible with a dry terry towel, and proceed with the testing.
