The true "original PYREX" and the only one still sold here...
on November 30, 2013
Am just about to order this as I chipped the pour-spout on my old one the other day. Also, another reviewer for a different size cup, stated that "PYREX" in all caps denotes the only original standard USA glass measuring cups remaining. The newer iterations have lower case "pyrex" and new measuring graphics. Apparently, the newer [likely outsourced] glass is made with a different process and there are numerous reports of the glass "exploding" in the microwave. I'll pass on that, thank you.
This one is just about perfect anyway, as it has 8 oz marked as usual, but plenty of room to heat water for a 12 oz mug: Approximately 10 oz at the the bottom of the pyrex lettering, and 12 oz at the top of the lettering. Plus, did I mention that this particular spout pours without dribbling liquid all over the counter?
Order one before this too is phased out for the newer inferior model. [Sigh, this is almost as exciting as perfect ice cubes...hahaha.]
