I have some Bakers Secret non-stick bakeware and I hate it. Now that I think about it, I should just get rid of it.
Over the last year I've been weeding out my Baker's Secret stuff that I bought when I got my first place, the coatings just don't last. The last thing I need to replace are my 2- 8" square brownie pans.

Funny thing is, with some savvy shopping, the new stuff is much better and doesn't cost much more than the baker's secret.

I have heard of them, and also have heard really good things about them.

No plans to replace the roaster or the muffin pan, as they are both over a 100 years old. My Pyrex is older, and some of the pieces are ones my parents gave me when I moved into my first apartment a little over 30 years ago. I also have some Pfaltzgraff pieces, that work well for somethings and not so good for other things.

I have been looking on Ebay and Amazon. Sometimes it is less sometimes it is more.

I think some folks are confusing Pyrex with Duralex. Duralex is tempered glass, but it isn't for cooking. I have a set of dishes in Duralex and they also make glasses. I worked in a bar where all our tumblers were Duralex. About every third time I ran a dishwasherful of glasses, one of them would shatter. But, it would shatter into chunks - no shards. I have also had some of my Duralex dinnerware shatter. I have read about people hearing a bang in the kitchen and finding a piece of their Duralex had shattered, while just sitting on a counter or in a cupboard.

I had a lid from one of my favorite glass baking dishes literally turn to shards and powder after a supposed minor injury. Sure felt like an explosion! (what were the amber glass multipurpose dishes called? Ah! Visionware!) That was many Thanksgivings ago, and I swear there are still particles in the kitchen!
