Probably not the same pyrex used for graduated cylinders and beakers. A lot of these can be avoided, but the freak accidents of them blowing up in the oven while baking is the part that should be examined.

Just sending this one back up. I feel that this is something to be aware of. In my case I'm sure pouring liquid in a hot glass dish was the issue with it breaking. Thanks for all the comments in the thread and for sharing your experiences. Vince

I hate when that happens! Has happened to me before too. I wasn't adding liquid to mine, but had set it down unsuspectingly in a shallow puddle of cool water. BOOM! Farking scary as chit!

Vince,

Was this real Pyrex, or the chit labelled Pyrex at Walmart?

Glad everyone was okay!

I would hate to see that mess or even inside the oven for that matter.

Good question Bill. It did have the Pyrex name on the dish when I started just like another that I still have. I do not know how old it is and one of the two was bought in the last couple of years.

I have my pyrex at 450*F a lot and have never had one break apart from extreme heat. I did have one explode on time because I sat it on the counter top after Ipulled out of the oven. I sat it in a small amount of water that was on the counter top. Always make sure the counter is dry.

I heard Pyrex was sold to a Chinese company. I don't know how true this is, and I don't remember exactly how long ago, maybe a couple of years or so. Any new Pyrex products are made in China and different materials and processes are used. They are known to explode very easily. I have 3 Pyrex baking pans that are at least 20 years old. The old ones made in the USA are good to go. I only use them for baking at lower temps (350 F or lower). I would never consider roasting in a glass baking dish. Get yourself a nice SS roasting pan. Glad to hear no one was injured!

I also found this letter on the Pyrex site that responds to comments about the manufacture of Pyrex Glass Bakeware:

.....for what it's worth.

Yup, did that when I was a kid. I put a pyrex bowl on the flames of the stovetop to melt butter or something (pre-microwave days). Thing grenaded in a couple minutes. That won't happen twice!

Pyrex isn't meant for that kind of use. Glad you and your own are safe.

Never put pyrex on a stove-top, no matter what the temp or application is.
