Do not put food in anything that is not manufactured for food. There are chemicals and additives in materials that can make you ill. There may be lead in them.
As long as they're clean and lined with a thick paper or fabric cloth and it's dried food then yes indeedy doo ;-)

I was looking at the page on how to make bowls out of old vinyl records. I also saw something on TV about a guy doing this for a living. Anyway, was wondering what you should do to make it water proof. I'm sure you couldn't put it in the dishwasher. But is there a way you could eat out of it?
When the time is up, take the LP off of the cookie sheet and begin molding, turning up the sides to create a wavy bowl shape. The bowl should not be too hot; if it is, wearing gloves does the trick. (Caution: Do not wear plastic gloves.) You have only 20 to 30 seconds of playtime to shape the bowl, so be nimble.
If your bowl looks wrong, put it back in the oven for another 10 to 15 seconds. That will give you more playtime. If your bowl is still lopsided, put the LP back in the oven until it wilts into its original flat form and start again. The finished product will be smaller than you might expect. In-house research has shown that three bananas, one large apple, or four heads of garlic will fit into the average bowl.
Good Luck! (05/21/2007)
