    Hi! thanks for this great post. Do you know any other brands that do not contain Cadmiun also? I mean, I’m looking for dinnerware completely toxic free!

    Thank you so much for this! I literally searched for plates/pottery made in the United States and am so glad your website was listed on the first page of results.

    I tried the Great Bay Pottery link above and it took me to their website – hopefully that means they are up and running again.

    Thanks again!

      Hi! Oops somehow I missed seeing this comment last month! I’m so glad you found this post helpful and THANK YOU for pointing out that Great Bay’s website is back up and running. I just spent the past 20minutes happily browsing all their designs, so many more than I remember seeing last time!

    Thank you Kaley! You had saved me so many days of researching for brands made lead-free dinner wares. Much appreciated your sharing! I love fiesta, the only brand I saw in the store locally – I wish they are less heavier for my weak hands – do you know why and what makes Fiesta heavy? should I expect all lead-free are heavy? Or any other lead-free that are less heavy than Fiesta? Thanks,-a

      Hi Anne! So glad you enjoyed the post and found it helpful! I agree Fiesta is heavy. I’m not sure what makes them so heavy. Perhaps their weight is linked with quality because I can attest that they are impressively durable. I do have bakeware from Bennington Pottery and they are also VERY heavy but I haven’t had personal experience with Bennington plates. I have the larger size coffee mug from Emerson Creek Pottery and when I compare it to my Fiesta mug (which is smaller), Fiesta feels a little denser/heavier. That might explain why when I recently dropped my Emerson Creek mug, it did crack. It’s still usable but probably will not survive another fall or hard bump. My fall roadtrip goal is to make it to the Emerson Creek Outlet in Bedford, Virginia and purchase a few more baking and dinnerware pieces. I’ll be sure to update this post when I do and comment on weight. Unfortunately I have not purchased any HF Coors or Bonnie Hotz pottery yet. Sorry I can’t be more helpful at the moment, but would love to hear your feedback if you purchase one of them!

    Hello. Thank you for your research. You just made my life so much easier. My family is on the quest to simplifying and we are about to move. Recently, I ordered a set of glass dishes from Amazon, made in France, lead free. As I was making breakfast, warming up some left overs, I heard a loud crash from my bedroom after about 5 minutes (hubby was near the kitchen monitoring the food). The glass plate broke into several pieces at 400 degrees, absolutely destroying our breakfast 🙁 We have a Corelle set but I swear they have lead and other undisclosed chemicals in them. So we are throwing everything away and starting over and I just found your site. Thank you Jehovah! I truly appreciate all the details and links.

      You’re welcome!! Glad I could help! I constantly use my Fiesta plates in the oven to heat up food (we don’t even have a microwave as an option) and have never had any issues! Same with Bennington Pottery bakeware!

    Hi Kaley,
    Thanks so much for your research! I was very close to ordering 4 sets of each plate and bowl in the collection (16 settings) from Williams-Sonoma (Open Kitchen line) but decided to hold off when I saw “made in China.” I try to buy American whenever possible so here is another opportunity that I have to do so.
    Thanks again,

      That’s awesome, glad I could help! All my plates, bowls, and most mugs are Fiestaware (still flawless despite HEAVY use from kids to adults). I’ve been gradually building a bakeware set from Bennington Potters (I just love their molted colors!), they are both gorgeous and heavy in a well-made kind of way. I’ve gifted people items from Emerson Creek and they’ve been well received. This xmas hubby got my a personalized “mom” mug from them with the lavender flower print-SO beautiful!! I can’t say enough nice things about any of the places I’ve tried, none have disappointed! I hope one of them works out for you! 🙂
