I wouldn't hesitate to use Pyrex to broil the top, and have done so many many times.

If you're really concerned, I believe those throw away pans come in an 11x7 size. For me, it wouldn't be worth the shelf space or cost to buy a special pan for just this purpose.

You could use a 8x8 or 9x9 instead or double the recipe and use a 13x9.

I also have Le Creuset stoneware pans I've put under the broiler just for browning. I think any stoneware would be fine for this, since they clay they're made from is fired at 1000s of degrees.

Pretty much most flameware is off limits.

I did risk buying two nice handled soup bowls from Scargo Pottery on Cape Cod a few years back (I tend to buy a bowl from a local pottery as a vacation "souvenir") and find them wonderful for French Onion soup - flameware's broiler-safe qualities are great! Dang, now I want some FO soup!
CG, a number of years ago, at a yard sale I bought a brown FO soup pot with four matching soup bowls. Spike has the set now and it makes the best, most delicious FO soup you could ask for. I get a bowl every time he makes it. But he makes sure he gets the bowl back. It even has the ceramic ladle.

And you are right. Pyrex is not safe to use in this manner.

I didn't know you can't put Pyrex under the broiler. I'd better stop it. I also use ovenproof ceramic dishes under the broiler. It only stays under there for a few minutes while the food browns.

Pyrex was bought by another company. They changed the formula and the new ones have exploded without any due cause. The old ones are much stronger and can be used under the broiler.
