Product Description
A kitchen staple for more than 80 years, Pyrex bakeware is as relevant today as it was in 1915.  Made of a durable, high temperature material, Pyrex bakeware is classically beautiful and versatile enough to use in the refrigerator, freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher and on the table in style.Amazon.com Review
Pyrex was the first to create a line of glass bakeware so cooks could actually see how their food was cooking. At the time, the idea was revolutionary; now–like all great innovations–we take it for granted. In fact, these days this large baking dish from Pyrex (a company that’s been making quality glass products for the better part of a century) costs about as much as dessert and coffee for two at a swanky cafe. Not a bad deal, considering it transitions flawlessly from oven to microwave to freezer to dishwasher, and, if you’re moderately careful, it will last you a lifetime. This dish’s 4-quart size is perfect for jumbo cakes or a casserole for a crowd. –Meg Heffernan

  • One side of this empty dish was on a hot back burner so I picked it up on the cool side, since it does not conduct heat obviously, and brought it over to the sink for a rinse and it just EXPLODED into a couple hundred pieces before I could reach the sink. Shards of glass went everywhere. It kinda breaks like safety glass in an auto windshield, but there were also larger shards. Cut my hand a little bit. Some of the hot shards even melted my vinyl floor which clued me in that the other side was hot. Why dont they design one that will turn a shade of color when heated? Other that the explosion hazard it is a good dish to use for baking and is easy to clean. I wonder if Pyrex will redo my ruined vinyl floor?

  • I’ve had this product for a few years now. Just tonight I used it to put a ham steak under the boiler. I let it broil for 7 minutes and then was going to take it out to flip it. The minute I started to take it out of the oven, it exploded in my hands. My knuckle has a deep gash and is severely bruised – I’m still unsure as to whether there’s glass in there or not. There was glass 8 feet away from the stove. There was no cool liquids being put into the pan, nor was the glass cold when I put it in there (it was room temperature).

    I’m just glad that neither of my kids were in the room when it happened.

  • Apparently the pyrex that is being made today is not as good as it used to be. I had this pan actually explode into a million pieces (large dagger-like shards, tiny chunks like a broken windshield, and powdered glass everywhere) while baking clams in a preheated oven. the pan was right out the cabinet at room temp. there were no extreme temperature changes at all. If you google “pyrex explosion” you’ll see this is a common occurrence. I’ll never use pyrex again, unless i can find the ones they make in the UK which i’ve read are made using the old tempering process… sad because we’ve used pyrex in my family forever.

  • I am a Pyrex fan. I always get good useage from mine. I have some dishes which are more than 20 years old. I use my 9×13 for everything from brownies to pasta dishes. However, $48 for this dish is way overpriced. I would expect $15 or so in a department store.

  • have used this Pyrex rectangular baking dish in oven for about 3 years. Last night I placed it on the top oven shelf, near to the electric heating coil,(but NOT in contact with the heating coil) and turned oven on at Maximum Broil temperature–as recipe required. I heard a loud noise from the oven, and found that the pyrex glass pan had SPLIT right through the middle. If it cant take such high temperatures for brief broiling times, the manufacturer should provide WARNINGS about that. Real mess cleaning up the oil and fish that was in the dish.
