Q: Is this item food safe? I am looking for a replacement washer for the inside of a coffee pot and this is the exact size I need (1/2 OD x 1/8 ID x 1/16 thick). If this material is not appropriate, do you sell a food safe alternative?
A: Hello Tom. This washer is NOT recommended for contact with food. Although, we do currently have this washer in the production queue to be made of a food safe silicone.
So we will have this washer in a food safe material in approximately one month. Does this help?
Q: I was looking to use these washers to replace a failed one in a coffee maker. Are these food safe such that they could be used in this application? The washers would come in contact with coffee as it brews.
A: Here is a link to a Food Safe Silicone version.
