    Default Today's Kitchen Woot - Pyrex Bakeware w/Lids

    This one looks more worthwhile than most of them lately.

    http://home.woot.com/offers/pyrex-11...bake-store-set

    $20, 11-Piece Set includes:

    1 - 8" Square with Plastic Lid
    1 - 3 Quart Oblong with Plastic Lid
    1 - 2-1/2 Quart Mixing Bowl with Plastic Lid
    1 - 1-1/2 Quart Mixing Bowl with Plastic Lid
    1 - 1 Quart Mixing Bowl with Plastic Lid
    1 - 9" Pie Plate

    I have similar ones that I find very convenient. I have a couple
    extra deep 8x10's (odd size, yes), a 6x9 and an 8" round w/90-degree
    sides that I use fairly often. All with optionally vented lids for
    cooling and storage in fridge. $20 + $5 chipping ain't a bad deal -
    much less than I paid all together. And none of them have exploded.
    Yet.

    Not sure how useful the bowls would be for use in the oven, but there
    they are for microwaving and general mixing/storage.

    For what it's worth we have purchased 2 of the bake and store Pyrex sets. I
    have been very dissatisfied IIRC one of the shows explained the formula for
    Pyrex has changed. I have had to throw away several pieces. The new design
    does not nest well and chips easily. (nesting several pieces of the same
    size) I now have to place a paper towel between each nesting piece or they
    stick.

    That is a good deal but I don't need it.

    Yes, when the Pyrex brand name was sold off, the products were changed
    from expensive borosilicate glass to cheap soda-lime glass. Old
    borosilicate stuff is really clear, while the new soda-lime stuff has a
    greenish tint.

    Oh swell! An entire set of exploding bakeware.

    I've tried the white opaque Corning stoneware with no probs, so far.

    I have Pyrex stuff with greenish, blueish, and yellowish tints. My
    borosilicate stuff is colourless.

    I don't think that is such a good deal -- for $5 I can chip them
    myself :O))

    My old borosilicate Pyrex is quite clear.

    I have a few individual pieces from that set, like the 13x9 with lid,
    and a few bowls with lids. I use the bowls for mixing, and sometimes
    for salads that might be lasting in the fridge for a few days. I've
    never tried cooking with the bowls.

    If I didn't have those, the whole set would be useful and I'd buy it.

    My Puerto Rican dear friend died recently. Oh how I loved her. My favorite
    expression from her was that it was not 'izzy'. Izzy is a word that I'll
    always hold close in my heart. Throw in some Puerto Rican here now and then,
    Sqwertz. I need it. Polly

    Sorry, the only Puerto Rican I know is from the movie Scarface. And
    even that dude was Italian.
