GLAD Ovenware is Oven Scare!

Hi All,
Just wanted to let you know about my terrible experience using GLAD OVENWARE. This is plastic bakeware that supposedly goes in the oven. Well I put mine in the oven and followed the directions exactly. Then the Ovenware melted all over my oven. What a mess! It took me four hours of scraping with a spoon to get it out. I called the company & they said it was quite common to have this "melting" and they couldn't give a good explanation. By the way, my dinner was also ruined -- the plastic contaminated my food. DO NOT USE THIS PRODUCT!

What a nightmare!!!!! I hope you have contacted the company explaining what happened. I have never bought it so can't give my input. I feel sure you will get a response. Let us know what happened.

And Now We Come To-gether

CookingFan: Did I read it correctly? You have contacted the manufacturer and were given short shift?
They Knew it happened S-O-M-E-T-I-M-E???
I HAD to re-activate this thread - Everyone must know.
If the manufacturer will not make good on your ruined supper, let alone the time you had to spend claening up, We should all let them know.
Post their e-mail, I'll give them a breath, or two . . .

Um, sounds like the company needs to change their slogan from "Don't get mad, get Glad" to "Get Glad, get Mad"! You'd think they'd offer you at least some freebie coupons to some of their other products. Oh, and speaking of Glad, my daughter saw a report on an area newscast talking about the Glad oil plug in's being a fire hazard.

Excellent one, Norma!! Lol...loved it - I had the same problem and it is a heck of a mess. I sent the "remains" to Glad and they sent me an apology and coupons for more of their junk - was going to give them to church and then thought wait, why stick that junk on the members of church who I like!?!? I dumped them in the basket at the supermarket. Sure wasn't about to use them. I would have preferred a refund for my purchase as opposed to coupons.

Glad is sooooo sad!!

Wish I had read this before I used the Glad Ovenware for my Christmas dinner. I baked dressing in the ovenware at 350 degrees. My dinner was totally ruined too. My house smelled like an electrical fire and it took all day to clean the crap out of my oven. It melted all down in the bottom of the oven and I had to literally take the thing apart to clean. I was baking homemade yeast rolls at the same time, and they were scorched from the melting plastic. I was worried that I would have to replace my stove because of this fiasco!! The directions say to not bake over 400 degrees. I never did and it still melted. NEVER NEVER NEVER USE THIS PRODUCT!! You WILL be sorry!!!!

Customer Service

Since this is an area where I practice to try to have my voice heard i have read the following. When wanting to make complaint to a company send a letter with a receipt request necessary. That way you have assurance that they are aware of your complaint and you have the proof. Sending emails or using the telephone must be so prevelant that they get ignored. That is what is happening in the country no one has conscience unless is happens to them. Do unto others rule is not heard enough. Individuals have to go the extra on their own to get it done right. I am sorry about your experience as I too would feel cheated and that is exactly what you have been, cheated. Harsh! But true. I recently checked my charge bill and you cannot believe the number of incorrect amounts on it. Wish I could do the same with my doctors when they suggest procedure or medication. Can not trust no one. I thank you for sharing your mishap with us. But sorry it happened to you.

Let me share my gladware story: (only this one was my fault)

I've only used it a few times to bake lasagna in. This last time I ruined our dinner, but it was my own doing. I placed a piece of foil over the top of it for the first 30 minutes of baking and then forgot to take off the foil for the last 15 minutes. I wanted the cheese to brown a little, so I took the foil off and thought a few minutes with the broiler on would do the trick. What the heck was I thinking ???!!! I swear my parents raised me to be smarter than that, but I didn't show it. I walked back into the kitchen and heard some crackling noises, turned the oven light on and well, lets just say I almost had a mess. Thankfully I had the pan on an old cookie sheet that I was tired of anyway.

We had some leftovers that night in place of the lasagna. Me and hubby are still laughing about that one. I think this tops the two times I forgot to take the cardboard off of the bottoms of the Digorno frozen pizzas.

I've done this too... makes you feel like a complete moron when you go to retrieve the pizza from the oven and realize - whoops - the cardboard is still there.

As for the GladWare, thanks for the headsup! I've never used it, but have been tempted to try it. I think I'll pass now that I've read about your experiences!
