"This plate can take the heat"

I have 2 Pyrex reheat plates I do used them often. These plates are a clear toughened glass they are 25cm radius. About the same as most dinner plates.
So why do I use these and what for?

Well I use them in the microwave and in the oven as they are made of borosilicate glass and can be heated up to 300c without breaking.
I use these plates as a splatter guard in the microwave when I am cooking in a pot without a lid. I also use them in the microwave as a plate if I wish to cook /reheat something. I have sometimes put a complete dinner on it frozen it and put it in the microwave to heat up useful I did a couple of plates like this after I had come out of hospital.
I do not think these glass plates very attractive so do not use them often for eating my meal from.
If I had one I could wash these plates in the dishwasher and as I said they do freeze ok too.
These plates are durable take a bit of knocking about . They are really useful and will last a long time. Not a very attractive item really but handy.

Pyrex is made of borosilicate toughened heat resistant glass. Pyrex kitchen ware has been made by Corning Inc since 1915, before that this firm developed toughened glass for light bulbs in 1879
Pyrex is a good material l as it is non- porous, flavours and smells do not linger on the bowl after washing
.
These plates are available from a lot of off and on line stores they sell for somewhere between £2.25 and £2.50 each. Two online stores selling are https://www.the-emporium.co.uk/productdetail.php?productid=096724 or http://www.the-shop-home.com/pronto-multip-reheat-plate-pyrex.ir?cName=kitchen-dinnerware-pyrex
