Pyrex Dish with Lid

I have owned and used many Pyrex glass dishes I even have some that were my mothers. Most of my Pyrex dishes are very old 40 years and older.
Pyrex dishes and plates are made from Borosilicate Glass which has high thermal shock resistance Pyrex is Stain Resistant does not retain flavours. It is
Ovenproof, Freezer, Dishwasher & Microwave Safe.

Most of my Pyrex dishes which I have owned for many years are round casserole dishes with glass lids. Recently I treated myself to a couple of rectangular Pyrex dishes with plastic lids! These are clear lids not the ones which are coloured or have green edges.
Now since the family have left home if I am cooking for just hubby and myself I find a casserole cooked in one of my older dishes too large for just 1 or even 2 days meals and its not so economic just to cook a casserole for one meal for 2 people. As I get bored with eating the same meal 2 or 3 days on the trot I usually freeze the left over portions. I find my new dishes ideal for freezing casseroles and lasagnes in and many other recipes too. Read on to find out why

l==l Shapes, Sizes
These dishes are rectangular. There are no grips or lips along the edges. They come in various sizes
19cm x 14cm x 4cm deep. 0.8litre - 22cm x 17cm x 5cm deep 1.5litre - 25cm x 20cm x 7.5cm deep 2.6 litre 27cm x 23cm x 9cm deep 33 x 27 x 9.5cm 4 litre and probably more.
At the moment I have only 2 of these, this situation might change soon.

l==l Use
First I will warn about the lid, its plastic and will melt so not suitable for the conventional oven or the dishwasher they are ok in the microwave placed loosely on the dish saves splatters.
I have found these dishes really good. I like the rectangular shape easy to fit into the oven (Oven safe up to 300 degrees,) or microwave. A good shape for the dishwasher and ideal for the freezer no wasted spaces as there is with a round dish.
For storing in my cupboard space saving not only do the straight dish sides fit better I find that they will nest inside each other.
.......Cooking
I have used my dishes for cooking casseroles in, toad in the holes, lasagnes, liver and onions and many other meat dishes. I have also used for baking sponge puddings in and cakes.
The cooking uses of these are many.
I do find these dishes ideal for storage. The lids fit very well do not get dislodged fit tightly.
When we visit my mother in law less able now in her late 80's, I often take her a meal a casserole or a lasagne I find the small ones of these ideal. A good sized portion, slightly too big for grandma in fact. Also the contents will not spill all over the car in transport we live about 2 hrs car drive away. Ideal for her to store till she need's them

l==lDurability
These like all Pyrex are very durable have a 10 year gaurentest do not dishwash o0r melt the lids in the oven.


l==l Price, availability
These dishes can be bought seperatley or as a set . Prices vary do a search for Pyrex dishes with plastic lid to find your best option.

At the moment https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pyrex-Rectangular-Dish-Plastic-1-5L have the single 1.5 litre dish for £5 I think the RRP is £.9.49
Argos is selling the Pyrex 1.5 Litre Glass Rectangular Dish with Plastic Lid for 3 .99

Amazon also have a set of 4 different sized ones for £29.73

http://www.dunelm.com/product/pyrex-large-rectangular-dish-with-lid-1000004924 has the 2.6 litre one for £6.49

l==l New lids
OOPS did you forget and you put the lid in the cooker or dishwasher/ its melted, out of shape, will not fit. Mmmmm well all is not lost go to http://www.pyrexuk.com/products/accessories.html a new lid will cost you around 2-3 pounds each

l==l Would I recommend

Yes

Pyrex
