A kitchen staple for more than 80 years, Pyrex bakeware is as relevant today as it was in 1915. Made of a durable, high temperature material, Pyrex bakeware is classically beautiful and versatile enough to use in the refrigerator, freezer, oven, microwave, dishwasher and on the table in style.
Pyrex was the first to create a line of glass bakeware so cooks could actually see how their food was cooking. At the time, the idea was revolutionary; now--like all great innovations--we take it for granted. In fact, these days this large baking dish from Pyrex (a company that's been making quality glass products for the better part of a century) costs about as much as dessert and coffee for two at a swanky cafe. Not a bad deal, considering it transitions flawlessly from oven to microwave to freezer to dishwasher, and, if you're moderately careful, it will last you a lifetime. This dish's 4-quart size is perfect for jumbo cakes or a casserole for a crowd. --Meg Heffernan

Old pyrex you could put on the open flame of a stove top to make a sauce. You can't with this new pyrex which isn't a big deal really. If you pull your 400 degree dish out of the oven it should be going onto a dry cloth or cooling racks atop your stove. Not onto a room temperature counter that will thermally shock it or onto a pool of water on your counter that is room temp. If you're roasting meats you should be adding a bit of liquid to this dish before putting it in the oven but in reality you should be doing that with all roasting meats and if you're not, I don't want to eat at your house. Our dish was on top of our stove waiting to be put away and it was dropped from the stove top the 2nd day we owned it. It didn't break or crack. I've been using it for a while now and have no problems or explosions. It's not a stainless steel sheet pan that you can use and abuse. Glassware is like Cast Iron cookware. You have to know how to take care of it, respect it and use it right.
This Pyrex baking dish was exactly what I was looking for. It's a generous size - 15 inches long, 10 inches wide and 2 inches deep. I was able to make a 6 layer lasagna and still had enough depth for another layer or two. This is the perfect baking dish to make lasagnas, casseroles and other baked dishes (such as chicken parm) if you are feeding a crowd, it's definitely large enough for BIG meals.
With any glass bakeware you have the risk of it shattering thanks to thermal shock (glass expanding due to temperature change thus shattering. Something that is taught in high school chemistry. I'm not trying to be rude but it's easy to forget things you learned in high school chemistry after all those years). Pyrex glass is not immune to thermal shock. There are two rules to follow to prevent shattering. 1) After baking never place the bakeware on a counter without a silicone trivet since the counter will be cooler than the dish and 2) Always make sure the dish has reached room temperature before placing it into the refrigerator from oven or placing it into the oven from the refrigerator. My mother taught me those rules and I can remember her following them 20+ years ago even before Pyrex changed their glass formulation. I'm not saying you can't put it straight on a counter or in the fridge after taking it out of the oven, nor am I saying you can't put it in the oven straight from the fridge but why chance it?
As long as it is handled properly and treated with care this Pyrex baking dish will be used to make all of your large baked meals for years to come.
I have never seen this happen with any of my other Pyrex...just a warning to others, maybe it's just not made like it used to be...I'm still using the Pyrex that my parents received for their wedding 60 years ago!
