Great product, glass is very durable and difficult to break,
This review is from: Pyrex Storage 10-Piece Set, Clear with Blue Lids (Kitchen)A passionate home cook that has been honing her cooking skills for the last 25 years writes this review. My favorite cookbooks are "The Professional Chef" by the Culinary Institute and "Culinary Artistry. Cooking is my form of therapy. I have owned my set of these for at least 5 years, and possibly longer. I have not broken a single piece in that time. This may not sound like much but I am hard on things, and for all of them to still be intact is a minor miracle in my home. The glass is very tough.
1. Glass is very tough, seems almost indestructible
2. I like that they are not plastic, so I feel safe about reheating food in them
3. The lids fit well for the first 4 years or so
4. Replacement lids are available at the Corning and Revere Factory Outlet stores
5. These containers fit well into lunch bags so that you family can take your healthy home cooked food to work or school.
6. The containers stack well inside each other for space cramped kitchens
7. You can bake in these and then cool the food (I place the entire container into a roasting pan filled with ice water) put on the lid and slide the pan into the refrigerator.
8. You freeze can food in these containers
1. The lids do stretch and warp over time, I recommend buying extra lids before you need them. My lids lasted approximately 4 years.
Overall, I would recommend these to anyone that likes to cook in quantity and doesn't like to reheat food in plastic. I use these everyday in my kitchen.

Warping of the tops may be exacerbated - or caused wholly by - using tops in the microwave. I avoid this and my tops have maintained most of their tight seal over the years.

I'd be careful about #7. In fact, I wouldn't do that at all. Putting a hot dish into ice water causes thermal shock and could make the dish shatter, sending glass shards all over. Let it cool for a few minutes on a rack and then put it in the fridge on a potholder or trivet.

Before the lids warped how was the seal? Another set I purchased has a terrible seal: Rubbermaid 8-Piece Glass Food Storage Container Set with Easy Find Lid These lids are extremely loose. If I want to keep food fresh I have to wrap the bowls with plastic wrap before putting the lid on... they are a very bad design. All they had to do was make the lids a little smaller. I'm not necessarily looking for leak-proof, but a snug, fairly air-tight fit would still be nice.
Thanks for your review and for your help!
