    Default Popularity of Antique Pyrexware on TV and in magazines

    Been catching Rachael Ray's daytime talk show a couple times a week...
    and I notice that she mainly uses her own cookware on the set. But for
    mixing bowls, she's been using the colored Pyrex mixing bowls that I
    have been collecting since I was a kid. It always makes me smile when
    I see them because many of the bowls she uses are in my collection.

    I've also been catching Paula Deen's "Best Dishes" at 6pm
    weeknights... and she's got quite a Pyrex collection, too. Not only
    does she have the big Red 4 qt bowl (#404, for the collectors out
    there), which I know we had when I was a kid, she's got the covered
    rectangular "refrigerator jars", which came in many of the same
    patterns that the mixing bowl sets came in. I've also seen Paula use
    the big square red salad bowl that came with the 4 matching "serving
    size" salad bowls. It's so nice to see her using these wonderful items
    which I also have and use every day in my cooking.

    We had the mixing bowl set with the Big Yellow, medium green, smaller
    red and the smallest one was blue. But I have a memory of the big Red
    one. All of our birthday cakes were mixed in the Big Red Bowl or the
    Big Yellow bowl. The Big Red Bowl, I found out about 15 years ago, was
    not sold in the set of 4, it was only sold open stock. My mom had the
    set and then got the Big Red Bowl separately. I remember the bowl
    because red has always been my favorite color and whenever Mom and I
    cooked together, I always wanted her to use the Red one, not the
    Yellow one. I have lots of happy memories of meals with my family
    served in these brightly colored Pyrex bowls and serving pieces, as
    well as all the Corningware my mom used. I have my Mom's Corningware
    too.... some as old as I am. And I use them all the time.

    I have also seen Pyrex serving pieces featured in many of the cooking
    magazines I've been reading. Just today, the Food Network Magazine
    showed an orzo pasta salad served in a 50 year old, rare large blue
    refrigerator container. The Blue one typically was the small loaf pan
    size. The large rectangular one typically was Yellow. The Blue one is
    rare in that size.

    I started this actively "collecting" this stuff about 15 years ago. It
    started because I had odds and ends of the sets my Mom accumulated
    over the years. Some bowls would break, so she'd buy a new set, but
    keep using the old ones from the previous set. I found pieces to
    complete the sets on ebay, garage sales, etc. I've also picked up odd
    pieces that I just like. I now have pieces from every decade from the
    1930's through the 1990's.

    I love seeing this stuff on tv and in magazines. Sometimes you wonder
    if the objects you choose to collect are silly. Somehow, seeing them
    in photo shoots and on tv legitimizes the collection!

    Interesting. I have been collecting old Pyrex for a while--but
    not the mixing bowls. I look for baking dishes (including custard
    cups), and storage bowls with lids.

    I have a lot of old Pyrex and Fire King0007642853cor Hocking ware. I
    have baking dishes, covered casseroles, cystard cups, measuring cups
    (the type with the raised markings, not baked enamel. I also have
    three sets of the Pyrex mixing bowls where each bowl is a different
    color. Each set came from a slightly different period, so the three
    sets are all different colors. I don't think I have anything newer
    than 1950, and some date back to the 1920s and 1930s.

    Those bowls sound beautiful, but I still think I'd prefer
    unbreakable, lighter bowls. (All the more for you and others who
    collect them.) Yes, I also collect those other brands. I think I
    have only eyed the measuring cups, but I'll try to get some of
    those too.

    LOL. (on my 2nd pot of CFON NYR!) When my friends roll their eyes at
    my latest find, I always remind them that they are not just sitting on
    a shelf collecting dust: I actually use them. That's my only
    justification!
    Glad to know I'm not the only one who gets all excited when a blue
    cornflower is spotted at Goodwill!!!!

    I "collect" Corning Ware, but not for collecting's sake. I like to
    use it.

    I have a set of 4 Pyrex (I think) nested mixing bowls - sage green and
    white - alternating main colors from size to size. They're very
    useful and I got them for a wedding shower present in 1962. I don't
    collect anything for the kitchen - I use it all.

    I "lived" those colors and styles and days - don't want to go back,
    thank you very much. Just like all the 30s prints and colors so
    popular now - those were my mom's housedresses, no thanks. Just like
    the orange/gold/olive/rust of the 70s. No thanks, been there, done
    that....still ugly.

    and I love the retro look. I just have to decide what decade I want to
    adopt!!!
    My dream kitchen makeover would be a refurbished 1940's Chambers
    double-oven, 8 burner range, re-enameled in Fire Engine Red! Black and
    white checkerboard floors and tilework. I of course, would want the
    fridge to match. Probably go with a modern fridge but the same re-
    enamel to match the stove.
    Dream on!

    Do those come self-cleaning?

    The two great kitchen innovations of the late 20th Century are the
    self-cleaning oven and the frost-free freezer.

    I grew up with stainless steel mixing bowls. I don't have any
    emotional attachment to Pyrex. Everything in the kitchen
    is just a tool, whose form should be optimized for its
    function. OTOH, I have a red stick blender, because the
    color doesn't affect its performance. But I don't get all
    matchy-matchy about things.

    Sigh. I didn't get my antique or even old house this time, so I
    gave up on refurbished or repro appliances. I did see some odd
    new fridges that were supposed to match modern stoves with an
    antique look though. I was shocked to see that one of those
    stoves looked like an old black cast iron one, but the area
    projecting over to the side was actually a small smoothtop
    addition. I forget whether it was one or two burners, but it sure
    struck a dissonant note. Also, while it looked like it had
    multiple ovens etc., it was actually the normal single oven.

    These things were VERY expensive too.

    I believe they do! They use the old shell of the stove, but they
    replace the "business end" of them with modern parts. So they only
    look old. I love the look.

    I agree. I wouldn't want the antique look if I had to sacrifice the
    modern standards of functionality.

    Oh we had stainless mixing bowls. The cheap ones from the supermarket,
    though. I always liked the old Farberware stainless steel mixing
    bowls. They were taller than they were wide, and a very nice shape. I
    have one that I picked up at Goodwill. It's a nice bowl and it does
    have it's place in the kitchen. It's small enough to fit inside my
    pressure cooker to cook rice in. It's also nice to use as a double
    boiler over a 1 quart saucepan if the need arises. I don't think Mom
    had the double boiler insert for our 2 qt Farberware saucepan. I
    haven't found one at second hand shops... the ones on ebay tend to be
    newer models, which were made overseas and are sized "metric", vs.
    mine which were made in Bronx, NY USA (as noted on the bottom of my
    pots and pans). The sizes are not identical. I had gotten one at an
    outlet store and it didn't fit my pan.

    Not sure but I would guess the mid to late 50's.

    English is not your primary language, is it? You wouldn't happen to be from
    Green Bay, Wisconsin, would you?

    Solid turquoise? Or is there a pattern? Are they all the same, or are
    some turquoise on white and some white on turquoise?
    The Amish pattern, known as "Butterprint" is from the late 1940's
    (Post WW2) and was made until the early 1960's. The solid turquoise
    were made in the 1950's. If you email a picture of the bowls, I can
    look it up in one of my reference books.

    I was at some antiques shops today and noticed some of these
    colored bowls. I did take note although I didn't purchase any of
    them.
