Ditch the Pyrex →

The problem is, most of us have in our head that Pyrex is safe because it used to be… when it was made by Corning. In those days, the glass was made out of a shatter and heat resistant glass called borosilicate (still used today in European manufactured Pyrex cookware). I have a Pyrex baking dish that I have had for 30 years and it has never cracked, even at temperatures above 350 degrees. Today, Pyrex is made out of an inferior glass that can’t be trusted, and when tested by Consumer Reports, shattered in every heat test performed.
