Pyrex 2 Ltr Glass Bowl
Advantages: easy to clean and robust
When I moved into my new home a few years ago I bought a large amount of kitchenware and chose Pyrex as a brand for many of my items. Pyrex products are extremely reliable and this is backed up by their 10 year manufacturer's guarantee!
*Price and availability*
I have seen this bowl in three sizes; the 1.0 L, 2.0 L and the 3.0 L. The one I purchased was £3.99 and was 2.0 L. I bought mine from my local supermarket but they are widely available on the internet. I recently bought a set of the three bowl sizes on Amazon.co.uk for £15.99. I could not resist! That is amazingly cheap and even with delivery, it works out at such a bargain!
The best thing I like about the bowl is that it made from toughened Borosilicate Glass, which gives this product a high thermal shock resistance meaning it is oven Safe to 300 degress C. This makes is very heavy duty and hard wearing.
It is quite thick glass which means that it is also very heavy! It can be a bit of handful when you have it full of ingredients. All the edges of the bowl are rounded so there are no rough edges. The base of the bowl is smooth and firm and gives a good base and offers stability. This is important for me as I often use the bowl for baking with and mixing the ingredients in.
*Bake in it*
Due to the robustness of the bowl, I have used the bowl to bake in. Baking a cake in a glass bowl offers a fun alternative to flat cake pans. I wanted to make a ladybird cake and this offered the perfect way of getting a round, dome cake without having to buy any expensive molds. After it had cooled, it popped out of the glass bowl easily and I was able to decorate it in a fun lady bird pattern with 7 spots. What a cool cake for a 7 year old!
Dome-shaped cakes can also be hollowed out in the center and filled with a delicious filling, or simply baked and frosted.
*Mix in it*
I like the dish because it is see through and means that I see straight through to make sure all my ingredients have mixed together.
*Serve in it*
I often use it as a serving bowl because it looks smart enough, it is great for salad when having a BBQ.
*Long live it!*
I have had my Pyrex for many years now and it is still in fantastic condition. There are no cracks or scratches on the glass and it does not hold on to odours.
The Pyrex is safe in the microwave and it is also safe for storing in the fridge or freezer. When it comes to cleaning, the dish can be washed by hand or in the dishwasher. I would fully recommend it!
