No one else thought to ask Kirby why his apartment was 55 degrees?

That happened at my house

I took a pyrex dish out of the oven with a huge pasta meal in it and when I put it on the counter it must have touched something cool because the whole dish shattered into little pieces of glass that went everywhere. That was the end of dinner, we had to take the guests out. I'm glad you weren't hurt. I will never use pyrex for anything like that again.

I've had a Pyrex baking dish break into a few pieces but no explosions or flying pieces of glass were involved. Just a sharp noise and a puddle.

Gee, I guess I've been lucky. In 45 years of cooking, I've never had anything like that happen. But then, I've always been an overly cautious scardy-cat.

It DID happen to me once. This was years ago, though.

I seem to be hearing about this happening quite a bit frequently. I have decided not to use Pyrex any longer.

Visions cookware, which is still available at Cooking.com, and the old square Corningware - those items can still be used for stovetop cooking.

Interestingly enough, Pyrex made those items. But now, their cookware these days is only made for use in the oven. What a **** shame though! Except for the Visions cookware, you can't use their other stuff on the stovetop.

I had a clear Pyrex bowl "explode" on me once for no apparent reason. Although suspicious - lol!!! If I remember correctly, it held something that I planned to incorporate into supper that my husband wasn't too fond of. Darned if I can remember what it was. Anyway, I went to take it out of the fridge & the bowl was cracked into pieces. Husband thought it was WAY funny, but somehow I couldn't share his glee, what with all that glass to clean up.
