Very often my Mother goes out and buys things for me. Having a big kitchen now and her knowing my love of baking and the likes these days I was really pleased when she pitched up with 4 of these for me cos I love the Pyrex brand and own plenty of it and she bought them for £20.00 in a local independent shop but a quick look on my trusty Amazon bible tells me that these actually cost a whopping £17.77 including postage and packaging for just two of them usually so well done to my Mum!
These actually in appearance are really simple. Pure white in colour and made from 100% natural materials (they are basically crock!) they are rather deep and measure around 9cm in diameter.
They are very well made and lightweight and flute out slightly to the top of them with a kind of lip and on one side of them the word Pyrex is engraved neatly and rather discreetly, they really are smart to look at.
These are suitable for use in the Oven, Fridge, Freezer, Dishwasher and they are Microwave Safe and even come with a 2 year guarantee (against manufacturer defects).
I use these for serving things up in, making jellies and I did even try to make souffles in them though not very well I have to admit! I like to cook small portions of things up and keep it warm in these or reheat things and they are great as they do not stain and do not retain flavours and they quickly became something that I use often thankfully. I like the way that these are versatile and I know they are safe to bung where I want to as they are safe in the fridge, freezer...anywhere and although I don't own or use a dishwasher I find these easy enough to wash up by hand and that they appear still in great condition with no scratches or stains on them!
Yes they are pricey these but they are the wonderful and the usual good quality that most of us know Pyrex for and now....well I wouldn't be without mine cos they are just so versatile, robust and wash up ever so easily!
Widely available though Google for the best prices if your interested.

Pyrex Ramekins are useful for both hot & cold starters and desserts and there are a variety of uses for them. I use these regularly and own 6 so that I may cater to many guests coming for dinner.
Pyrex Ramekins are made from glass or china and are toughened. They can withstand extreme hot or cold temperatures and they are fridge, freezer, oven, microwave & dishwasher safe which makes them ideal for making desserts up and then cooking them straight from the fridge or freezer and you can just throw them in to the dishwasher after use to get all those stubborn stains out of the fluted edging.
These are currently available from Amazon for £1.95 + postage but shop around as you can often find them on offer or for ridiculously cheap prices, especially the china ones. As I mentioned before there are a few different varieties available so you should be able to find one that matches your table décor.
I have used this for a variety of uses and they keep very well. My glass dishes still look just as good as when they were brand new and I have had them a couple of years now without any stains or chipping occurring. There are extremely hard wearing and can take plenty of knocks without any damage occurring. I think that these are an essential part of any dinner party even if just for putting olives or dips in or making that crème brulee!
I am rating these 5/5 as they are Pyrex and do the job perfectly. I've never had any complaints with these, well, apart from the fact that I can never seem to own enough as my family slowly but surely expands!
