Question
HI,thank for taking a look at my question.
I recently bought for Ebay (after getting tired of cheap plastic hot pots) a Dormeyer hot pot to warm up my soup, make oat meal (while traveling)..
THis is what I have

my question: since from the 60's (I think).. is there a chance of lead leaking issue? It is metal but don't know about lead being an issue. thanks.

Answer
I think you have made a good move.  Dormeyer was one of the high quality products of its time.
There should be no lead in this hot pot.  It is almost all stainless steel.  I think the main heating element is also stainless.  It is a lot better than the cheap aluminum ones that are sold today.  Good luck.
