A couple years ago, I bought a set of old bowls. Actually it's a partial set. I didn't realize at the time that one was missing, but I've since tried to avoid thinking about that. Here are the bowls.
Yes, that's a Peeps bunny aging on the counter behind the bowls. Let's just focus on the bowls : ) In particular, I am concerned about the largest bowl. I am going to try my hand at making homemade bread & I need a large bowl with which to do that. Naturally, I have no idea where these bowls "have been." The inside of the big bowl has some light crazing but no chips. There are some dark discoloration spots though. The spots are not rough or anything.
The paint smear looking thing you see there on your left & the obvious reflection on the right are just that ... reflections.
So ... is it safe to use this bowl after a good washing?
