I haven't seen or heard of the Gladware that goes into an oven, guess I live to far north. Maybe in time I'll see it. We seem to be very behind here and I don't know why that is. So sorry about your mishap. Glad com. should be ashamed for selling a product like that. Seems there is no pride left for manufactures anymore.

Thanks for the warning, I often take dishes to friends, and thought they might be a good Idea, no worrys about getting dishes back. Glad I saw this. Nothing would be worse then having a friend already with a problem and then add this mess to theirs. Some friend I would be.

I would go to www.clarkhoward.com and tell him about what the company said. He is good to listen to and he hates to hear how people get ripped off.

GLAD Ovenware is Oven Scare!

Hi All,
Just wanted to let you know that I've used GLAD OVENWARE with no problems. In fact, I've re-used the same black plastic baking pans several times over. I think, perhaps, "COOKING FAN" did NOT follow the directions, which clearly state that the pan should be placed on a cookie sheet in the center of the oven, and to use only one pan at a time. If these directions HAD been followed, she wouldn't have had the Ovenware melt all over her oven. And, if due to defective Ovenware, the melting would simply have been confined to the cookie sheet. The company also probably said it was quite common to have this "melting" if you DON'T follow directions and use a cookie sheet under the Ovenware.

I don't plan to stop using this product and feel that if you also use it, PLEASE...Carefully READ and FOLLOW directions! By the way, I do not work for Glad or any of it's other companies. I am employed by a major hospital system. Just thought you should know that if you carefully follow directions, things will work. Also, if "COOKING FAN" got a flippant reply from the Glad company when she contacted them, she should have asked for a supervisor, manager, vice president or other officer of the company to escalate her complaint/concerns. Attitudes like that don't make a company successful.

I bought it a time or 2 back around that time, had no problems. I haven't even looked for it since then, maybe too many people had issues with it and they discontinued it?
OP was a 1 post wonder it looks like anyway. Maybe it was a grudge post? Wierd.

IMHO one should not cook or heat anything in plastic even if its meant for oven or microwave. Even those frozen meals should be turned out on a plate before microwaving.Plastic is only good for food storage.I dont even trust those steam in the bag frozen vegetables or the bags they sell to steam in.Its still plastic.
