You can count on Pyrex!,
This review is from: Pyrex Grip-Rite 2-Quart Oblong Baking Dish, Clear (Kitchen)
I've been using Pyrex baking dishes for decades, and I've never found a brand of glass that's better. Things I like about Pyrex baking dishes:
* They last forever, at least in my experience!
* You can see what you're cooking
* They can go from refrigerator to oven to microwave to dishwasher
* They are great for people who do freezer cooking, as I do
I love this 2 quart dish, which is the 11 X 7 inch rectangular size. It's perfect for holding casseroles that serve 4. I use it all the time for vegetables, fish, and for dividing up large recipes (such as lasagne) into two portions - one to eat now and one for the freezer.
The Pyrex people have improved the original design for this dish by adding larger handles at the ends. This makes it easier to pick up. I have one older model and one new one, and I plan to buy more of the new ones - they are even better than the original!
(Pyrex has also come out with an "Accent" line that includes the 2 quart size; the Accent pieces have silicon on the handles. They look pretty, but I'm not sure what value the silicon adds. There isn't enough silicon to allow you to grab the dish without a potholder; the silicon is apparently there to aid in gripping - not a problem to begin with, especially with the new design. The Accent dishes cost more. And, I wonder if the silicon might break down eventually, with continued oven use.)

Thanks for the helpful review. I needed the measurements, which aren't listed here and are important to the recipe I need this for.
