Crappy lids and the newer glass. I’ll pass. But thanks for the posting!

Not only that, it's only an 11 piece set....they're counting the lids as a separate item to bring the total to 22 pieces. What a bunch of frakin liars, why this is not illegal is beyond me!

…and I don’t think it’s the “Pyrex” you can put in the oven.

I have quite a few of these containers. The glass is pretty durable and withstands drops and frequent microwave use. The lids tend to split when placed into the dishwasher so best to hand wash. The lids will also split if placed in the freezer so don't do that either! From what I've read the Sophico silicone replacement lids are much better and I'll be switching to them in the future.

If you are looking for something else America's Test Kitchen picked the OXO Good Grips as their favorite in 2019 and 2018.

thanks for the tip on the Sophico lids. We have a 6 cup we have used heavily for 2 decades for dips and leftovers. Doesn't absorb flavors or stain like plastic.

Yes, I'd rather have my mother's vintage Pyrex, but my sister got them. She does not know I have mom's pyrex potato salad bowl though.



"Defending your own life when in immediate danger to me is a basic right of each person. " Lemon Drop 11/17/2023 03:10 pm

Heller, 554 U.S. 570 (2008) Private citizens have the right under the Second Amendment to possess an ordinary type of weapon and use it for lawful, historically established situations such as self-defense in a home, even when there is no relationship to a local militia.

"The conclusion is thus inescapable that the history, concept, and wording of the second amendment to the Constitution of the United States, as well as its interpretation by every major commentator and court in the first half-century after its ratification, indicates that what is protected is an individual right of a private citizen to own and carry firearms in a peaceful manner." Right to Keep and Bear Arms: Report of the Subcommittee on the Constitution of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, Ninety-seventh Congress, Second Session. U.S. Government Printing Office. 1982. Digitized September 30, 2008.

From the NYSRPA v Bruen "Today, we decline to adopt that two-part approach. . . . Despite the popularity of this two-step approach, it is one step too many. Step one of the predominant framework is broadly consistent with Heller, which demands a test rooted in the Second Amendment's text, as informed by history."

If I recall correctly, the 'new' Pyrex can go in the oven, just not freezer to over like the old stuff.

Or take it from the over and set in on a 'cold' counter, thermal shock being a problem with the newer glass.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

Yeah, when I was looking this info up the tempered soda glass they are selling under the US Pyrex brandname will handle something like a 90-100 degree differential. The borosilicate glass can handle over 200 degrees of differential. The tradeoff is that the borosilicate is slightly more brittle than the tempered glass and will break a bit easier if dropped or banged into something.

A company in France still has the rights to manufacture and sell Pyrex branded glassware for kitchen utensils.

Edit - meant to say that Pyrex made in France is still borosilicate glass. People still order through Amazon UK and have it shipped here.

I had one pan from the 80's that lasted almost 20 years. I unknowingly replaced it with the new formulation and broke 3 in two years. Can't use the new ones to broil in the oven, ~375 F max.

It's the same thing with Mason jars. Old ones you just dump in the hot water bath, new ones need to be pre-heated or they will break.

Most sets of anything has done this in my recent memory judging from what I have seen on store shelves.
