Pyrex Casserole Dish
Advantages: Reliable, good guarantee, last a long time
When my husband and I got married we needed literally everything for our new house, and so although we would be receiving some things as wedding gifts, we still needed everyday items such as kitchen gadgets and dishes. Not expensive ones, but the everyday kind, which are reliable but at the end of the day, if they were to be dropped accidently, it wouldn't be the end of the world, and could be easily replaced.
Pyrex is a very well known brand of kitchen wear and in fact I have a lot of their items in my kitchen cupboards, ranging from measuring jugs, to roasting dishes and two of these casserole dishes, the same as the picture at the top of the screen. My two casserole dishes from Pyrex are two different sizes, one at 2.0L and one 0.75L. The average price for the bigger of these two is around the £8 mark, whereas the smaller one is around the £6 mark. I got both of my pyrex casserole dishes in TK MAxx at almost half of the prices that I have just quoted, and so it is worth having a good look around.
Both of the casserole dishes that I have come with a lid which is very useful for both the oven, microwave and even the freezer when storing a casserole for example. Pyrex is a very well known brand, and has established itself as a reliable producer of kitchen essentials, which is probably why they offer a 10 year guarantee with their products, as they are confident of the quality of the items they produce. I have never in the five years or so of having these casserole dishes had to look into the guarantee, as they are still in perfect condition.
These casserole dishes are made from Borosilicate Glass which supposedly provides ' high thermal shock resistance' so should withstand a fair amount of heat, in fact these dishes should be able to withstand up to 300 degree temperatures, although I cannot say I have ever tried this out!
One of the best things about these casserole dishes and one that I alluded to earlier is that they are safe for both microwave and oven cooking, as well as being dishwasher safe and freezer friendly. THe only one of these I haven't tried out is the dishwasher safe part, as I don't have a dishwasher. I find these dishes ideal for casseroles, cooking vegetables in the microwave or putting something into for the freezer for an easy dinner some night.
All in all, pyrex has a well respected name, and with any product you may buy you can see why. The products should last you years, and the fact that there is a 10 year guarantee means the company must be pretty sure they will last a long time. A great kitchen essential. They might not look exciting but they are a great piece of kit!
