I hope someone can help. I recently picked up a white soup tureen that says made in Portugal on the bottom, I don't know exactly what type of material it is made out of.

I washed it when I got it home and some lines showed up on it, they are not cracks but bluish/grayish lines inside the cookware. I can't feel the lines but they are there on the inside and outside of tureen. When the tureen dried the lines disappeared.

I tried googling to see if this happens to tureens regularly but all I could find is that some of them get something called crazing after using. Mine doesn't look like crazing. But I'm afraid that it might fall apart if I put hot soup inside it.

Another site said that tureens that may have been improperly glazed could leach out dangerous chemicals into the food.

I would appreciate any feed back on this matter.

thanks light

I also posted this on the cooking forum before I realized that the cookery forum might the more appropriate place.

Light...you gould test the Tureen by putting hot water in it...If it's ok then I would make sure it isn't placed on a cold surface before filling it with the hot soup. Please be careful.
As for the crazing I have a few inherited dishes and bowls that have that, I have never worried about it. Cracks and chips on the other hand...I tend to chuck them out.
Hope this helps.

I had a casserole pot that had the bluey coloured crazing you describe. I think I caused it by putting it hot into cold water. It was fine for years like that, then one day it split in the oven into about 20 pieces. Don't know if thats any help whatsoever :{

Ok thanks pixie and Charlie I'll keep your advice in mind, I hate to throw the tureen out because it's very elegant looking but I would also hate for it to break while it is on the dinner table. I'll test it with hot water first. Thanks so much!

take care light

Ok pixie, I'll let you know but it will probably be a little while, but when I do you'll be the first to know ;o)

take care light
