Pros: PYREX? glassware is a great addition to the kitchen storage problem.
Cons: none noted
Remove the speculation about what's stored in those food containers in your fridge with these handy glass storage components produced by Pyrex. Pyrex? Glass 2 Cup Round Bowl with Cover are Made in America great.
Pyrex?, the commerce that originated due to a ruined supper and a broken casserole dish, is a registered trademark of Corning Incorporated. Pyrex? Glassware has come a long way from the early products offered by the Corning company back nearly a century ago.
Just the thing for cooking/storing needs, Pyrex? glassware is intended to go right from the freezer or refrigerator to the microwave, traditional oven or convection oven. I do not own a metal cooking pan.
Ease of use, storage and cleanup of Pyrex? Glassware convinced me long ago that there was no need for anything in my kitchen but either Pyrex? or Corningware? produced by the Corning Corporation which I was using even before I married and began cooking for husband and/or family.
Caution: Pyrex? glassware is not designed for use on stove tops, other types of burners, under the broiler or in a toaster oven. Pyrex? Glass is safe for use in freezer, refrigerator, oven and microwave. An advantage of Pyrex? glass results from the thickness of the glass which dispense heat throughout the Pyrex? glassware dish. Foods are baked evenly with no areas of some raw and some scorched.
The glass does not absorb odors or flavors as is found in some types of containers. Because Pyrex? is non-reactive; recipes using lemon, vinegar or tomato based sauces and the like are safely prepared, cooked and served in Pyrex? without fear of poor taste, quality or other reaction.
When sons and their friends were here at dinner time; there were no leftovers. Now that it is husband and I we often discover ourselves with something uneaten at the end of the meal. I find the Pyrex? Glass 2 Cup Round Bowl with Cover to be an excellent size for many of the dibs and dabs we have remaining after our supper is finished.
The 2 cup size bowl lends itself readily to use for heating servings of stew, soup, or other entree when we are having a Friday evening left over supper. I dont like to waste food, storing leftovers until they have gone slimy with long green hair is a waste of food and electricity both. Husband often has left over something for his lunch a day or so after we have eaten most of the entree for supper.
On Thursday or Friday we get all the bowls, if any, out of the frig for a left over supper, what we dont eat then is taken out for the raccoons., Those little nippers will eat darn near anything and seem to enjoy a little variety in addition to their cat food suppers upon which they generally dine.
On occasion I do like to make up a dish with leftovers for later in mind
Tortellini Casserole is one
Preheat oven 325⁰ if using Pyrex, 350⁰ if using metal pan
28 oz jar spaghetti sauce
frozen tortellini prepared according to package
2 C small curd cottage cheese,
4 C shredded Mozzarella cheese,
Layer sauce, tortellini, cheses in 13 x 9 baking dish.
I use either Pyrex? or Corningware?
I usually spritz a little Pam before beginning to layer the ingredients
Sprinkle Parmesan Cheese over top
Bake uncovered in a 325⁰ degree oven for about 30 to 40 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
Served with a fresh salad, crusty garlic bread and a light dessert, perhaps a bowl of chunky cinnamon applesauce and supper is ready at the end of the workday.
Store leftovers in Pyrex? Glass 2 Cup Round Bowl with Cover
Frozen ravioli can be substituted for tortellini.
While we are not vegetarian, we do use beef sparingly. I like to use cheese tortellini for a meat free supper dish.
I like the size and shape of the straight side, 2 cup bowl; measuring approximately 1.5 inches deep and 4.5 inches wide the bowl is easy to use and easy to store in the cupboard.
Holding 2 cups of liquid, plus being see through allowing inspection of the contents, and having a lid that snaps securely in place causes this bowl to be especially handy for storing supper surplus.
Whether the leftovers are put into the refrigerator for midnight snacking, tomorrow lunch fare or once a week left over supper, or are stored in the freezer for use at a later date; the contents remain visible, free of freezer burn, and accessible. The Corning Corp. PYREX? glassware with tight sealing lids are a great addition to the kitchen storage problem.
I like that the lids remain fresh in appearance, are not faded and have not warped out of shape despite being used with the bowls in the microwave and have washed many times. My PYREX? 2 cup bowls are made of heavy, thick tempered glass that is purposely designed for baking in conventional ovens or for use in microwaves. Because the bowls are glass they do not absorb or retain food stains or odors. The glass remains clear, is durable and difficult to chip.
Per the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the product known as Pyrex consists of 1% aluminum, 4% boron, 54% oxygen, less than 1% potassium, 38% silicon, and 3% sodium .
Pyrex? glassware is found in nearly every kitchen today. Offered in an ever growing collection of well-organized shapes and sizes; each individual piece of Pyrex? can be used for baking, cooking, microwaving, serving, and storage.
Dishwasher safe mylidded 2 cup bowls, and their companion pieces, 4 cup bowls with lids are easy to clean. However, now that it is only husband and I at home we rarely run the dishwasher. I will soak the bowls if need be, followed by washing the piece by hand and allowing it to air dry. My dishwasher does see duty today as a large, with door, dish rack where we place clean, damp dishes before they are returned to cupboard.
Designed to survive oven heat Pyrex? guarantees that any Pyrex? brand glass item that breaks from oven heat within two years from date of purchase will be replaced. I have used many pieces my glassware for nearly three decades and have yet to have any of it break due to heat.
I purchased my first Pyrex? 2 cup bowl at our local Albertsons for about $4. I notice they are becoming more costly with time and rising transportation costs. They are available on the Amazon site should you want them and not be able to locate in your brick and mortar shop.
PYREX? glassware is heavy-duty, translucent for easy checking of storage and cooking progress in addition to having exceptional heat conduction considered necessary for even, reliable cooking. There is no stand-in for PYREX? glassware in the kitchen.
The original glass bakeware IS PYREX?. Introduced 90 years ago, and made of a sturdy, high heat resistant substance; PYREX? glass and bakeware continues as the definitive standard for secure, dependable food preparation, cooking and storage ware.
I am very fond of glass, which I collect glass. Much of what I have is from the depression era. Some of it is early Pyrex in the Philbin pattern. Introduced nearly a century ago and produced of a hardwearing, high temperature substance, Pyrex? remains the ultimate means for secure, steadfast food preparation.
I do not use my depression era pieces for baking despite having pie bakers and casserole dishes. I can replace modern pieces easily the early pieces are much harder to find should one be broken, I just dont want toe take the chance despite my realization the glassware would likely be as safe to use today as it was when first produced. For many cooks there is just no alternative for Pyrex? glass bakeware. Happy to recommend.
