    Anyone know if these are BPA free? A customer asked. I sent an e-mail inquiry to the solution center and am waiting on a reply, but thought I'd ask & see if anyone already knows the answer.

    I did a search for "BPA" before posting and nothing popped up.

    The Solution Center still has not answered my e-mail, but I found info on Consultant's Corner that says Micro Cookers do NOT have BPA.

    For anyone else who might be interested in the answer, here's what they said:
