Precautions to be taken for health safety, while 3D printing kitchenware:

For kitchenware to be used with food, it’s recommended to use a Food safe filament, for example, food safe PLA.

Coat the object with a food-safe sealant, so that food doesn’t get stuck in cervices.

Use warm water with anti-bacterial soap for cleaning instead of a dishwasher, which may melt the object.

Also, preferably, use a steel extruder on your 3D printer, instead of a barss one, which may contain lead.
