I actually get what you're saying here. It comes down to what kind of person you are (yes, the purchase of a new gasket gets to the core of a man). There is likely nothing wrong whatsoever with the Rutland. But if you're the kind of person that's going to think about the infinitesimally small chance that there is a health hazard, you ought to spare yourself the worry and just use another gasket, even that gasket it marginally worse. For me, a letter from the company urging you not to use the gasket around food (legal though I'm motive for that letter was), is enough for me to bow out. Knowing I'm likely being ridiculously cautious, I'd just buy another gasket.GatoGordo said:For those that use Rutland, I understand how you made the decision to throw caution to the wind, but how many warn their guests? Shouldn't it also be their decision?
