Pyrex Casserole Dish
Advantages: Good value for money, durable, moulded handles
I love my Pyrex products. Look in my cookware cupboard and you will see lots of Pyrex dishes! One of those being the Pyrex casserole dish.
----- Price, size and availability -----
Pyrex products are widely available to buy from anywhere that sells kitchen equipment, I bought mine from Wilkinsons, along with most of my other Pyrex products.
This Pyrex casserole dish comes in different sizes, I've seen them as little as 0.75 litres and as big as 2 litres. If you wanted a bigger dish again, then the oval shaped casserole dish has bigger capacities. I personally have the 1.5 litre round casserole dish.
I can't remember how much I paid exactly for my 1.5 litre dish but I think it was around £7. Of course, the price all depends on what size you go for.
----- My opinion -----
I love my casserole dish, it's not only used for casseroles, but has 100 and 1 different uses. Mixing foods, and serving salads is just a few of the extra things I use my casserole dish for.
Pyrex products are made from borosilicate toughened heat resistant glass, so they can be heated up to 300F without a problem, perfect for a dish that is used in the over for casseroles. The toughened glass also means that it is pretty much unbreakable, Pyrex give all of their products a 10 year guarantee so they must be pretty sure that the dishes are unbreakable. I've yet to break one, or damage one in anyway in the whole 3 years I've had them.
This particular dish has moulded handles so putting it in and out of the oven is quite simple with oven gloves. I'm a bit of a wuss when it comes to cooking and hate getting things from the oven, so without having to try and get hold of the dish on the bottom or getting a good grip on the sides, these handles make my cook without any worries.
The casserole dish is dishwasher safe, I don't have a dishwater so I cant comment, but washing them is simple with the normal washing up. A bit of soapy water and a little elbow grease and they look as good as new.
I'd definitely recommend this Pyrex casserole dish, its made from an incredibly tough glass, and the moulded handles give me peace of mind when using the oven.
Summary: Another fantastic dish from Pyrex
