>I’ve fallen in love with the new Pyrex No-Leak Lids Bakeware.
|I Stored Leftover Orzo with Chicken and Broccoli in my new Pyrex Pan.|
I’ve had Pyrex pans since I had my first apartment my senior year in college. I didn’t have much money, but I happily plunked down my $10, (two hours of folding Gap jeans perfectly!), in order to own a Pyrex casserole. How else would I make my sister’s yummiest fudgiest brownie recipe?
I still have that casserole dish today, fifteen years and many lasagnas and brownies later, a much better investment than the $10 frying pan. Considering the same glass as Pyrex is used by NASA on the space shuttle, it’s no surprise that their pans are a virtually indestructible cooking utensil.
I recently received a few samples of the new Pyrex No-Leak Lids cookware to try out in my kitchen. I quickly became a huge fan. Here’s why:
- Microwave Cooking Made Easy: The No-Leak Lids have a little pop-up vent for reheating in the microwave, a stroke of genius as far as I’m concerned. I’ve been using them not only to reheat the roasted butternut squash I made in the small casserole, but also just to microwave frozen veggies under a microwave-safe lid.
- Easier Storage: The lids make it so much easier to store and stack my Pyrex pans in the fridge, eliminating the need for plastic wrap, and reducing scratching of the Pyrex glass.
- Easier to Transport: I’ve had so many trips in the car for Thanksgiving holding a stack of Pyrex casseroles balances on my lap that are topped with flimsy aluminum foil. This year, I won’t worry that I’ll accidentally dent my carrot souffle when my husband takes a corner too sharply.
- Inexpensive: Still the same, low cost as the open-top Pyrex bakeware. $9.99 for rectangular baking dish, $11.99 for a Round Baking Dish. They also come in larger, more discounted sets such as a 4 piece round container set for $22.99
