I've always sprayed my glass cookware with cooking spray. If there ever is anything that doesn't come off with regular washing, Brillo takes it off easily.

Has anyone ever hear this before and has anyone successfully gotten stains off Pyrex?
I've had my pyrex for many years, used cooking spray, & never had stains. Soak it in warm/hot soapy dishwashing liquid (I prefer Dawn), use a little scrub brush if necessary. Clean it thoroughly after each use. If you still have stains, I'd toss it & buy new.

Frankly, I would have challenged her on the comment about silicone in cooking spray. And I wouldn't care if she had been selling her product for 200 years. If the cooking spray that I use has silicone in it, the labeling is incorrect and the company is breaking the law. I've come to think that some claims made by the sales people during in home sales parties can be close to outrageous as they peddle their over priced wares. I spray my pyrex bakeware and any other bake ware that I choose to spray. The trick is to not over spray and then into the dishwasher it goes.

While I'm not trying to lend any credibility to the cookware seller, the can of PAM I have in a kitchen cabinet contains dimethyl silicone used as an anti-foaming agent.

Wow! Thanks to all of you for your suggestions! I have tried the magic erasers, but I don't think I scrubbed hard enough. I will definitely give your other ideas a try.

You people are amazing! Thanks, again!

Thanks, too, everyone or the information about silicon. I'm sure you are right when you say that the cookware sales lady was spreading yet another one of those urban rumors to sell more of her products! I feel better now knowing I'm not poisoning family and friends!

No. 1, who's goober and what's he doing up there?

No. 2, where do you get those generic ones?

I find that on the rare occasion that I get cooked on stains, a little elbow grease with a Scotchbrite Rescue pad takes care of it. My Pyrex bakeware is quite unblemished.
