PSA: last night one of our pyrex cooking dishes exploded.
not fractured, exploded. “pyrex isn’t supposed to do that” we thought.
as of a few years ago, Pyrex sold their brand, the new company changed glass recipe as a cost cutting measure, resulting in a pandemic of exploding cookware and a class action lawsuit.
thankfully the patent has expired and the keyword to look for in competing glass cookware products is “borosilicate glass”
@zensaiyuki Ugh, because of course it was all about cutting costs 😒 it's always some rich jerk trying to save money.
I'm curious – do you know what kind of glass the shattering Pyrex things are made from?
@InvaderXan soda lime
Ohhh tempered soda lime glass! That explains the explosion. Geez, why couldn't they just stick to borosilicate like any sensible person?
