Pyrex Bakeware Complaint - I used a pan and it broke

Review by Cookery on 2007-04-19
SNELLVILLE, GEORGIA -- Today I was baking a cake in a glass loaf pan that I have used previously and I had never had any problems with it. Thank God I was only baking a cake and it was on the bottom level of the oven. The Pan exploded all over the oven into bits. Please read my review and understand that I am very upset over the damage that could have happened if I had been cooking and not baking thanks.

I hate those things.....My Mom was notorious for having those thing break on her. I would never use them on top of the stove and in the oven I would go midshelf. Good luck on be careful.

You certainly have to be careful when using glass bakeware. I don't think "going midshelf" would make much difference.

I recently took one of those out of my oven, set it on my stovetop (which was not on) and had it break into about 6 large pieces. I thought maybe it had a weak spot or something.

It may have had a hairline crack in it....and just a reminder for those who use it for cooking...remember never add cold water to it when it's hot...I'm surprised at how many people will add cold water to their roast or whatever they are cooking when using glass...if you HAVE to add water make sure it's hot water or at least warm...but never cold.

Why would cooking be more dangerous then baking? All my pyrex is 30+ years old. Maybe the new ones are the problem.
