Oh I love.....

This morning I was washing dishes at 5:25 am (I hate coming home to dirty dishes) and as I was scrubbing away I thought "Man, I love my pyrex stuff!".

So thats my favorite thing for this week, my 6 piece pyrex set. I have 3 rectangular dishes and 3 lids in 3 different sizes.

I got them as a shower gift and I thought "Great, another storage set" but no, its SO much more! I can bake in it, freeze in it and microwave in it. Plus the lids make for easy, spill-proof storage and transportation. I even keep baked goods (cookies, cupcakes, etc) in them instead of plastic bags.

Here is what Pyrex says about their product:

• PYREX® glassware products can go directly from refrigerator or freezer to a microwave, convection, or preheated conventional oven. A small amount of liquid should be added to the ovenware vessel prior to baking foods that release liquids while cooking.

• PYREX glassware is non-porous glass, so it won’t absorb food flavors, odors, or stains.

• PYREX glassware is non-reactive, so acid-based recipes, including tomato-based sauces, lemon-infused dishes and vinegar-based poultry sauces can be prepped and baked without affecting the result of the recipe.

• Made in America, PYREX glass products are microwave and dishwasher safe.

I love my pyrex as well! I have a couple casserole dishes with lids as well as a set of round storage containers!

Wow, those do look great. I have one pyrex dish, but I've always just baked brownies in it.

I'd much rather store food in glass than plastic - thanks for the review and tip!
