For those wondering, Pyrex hasn't been made of actual pryrex glass for a long time. It was bought out and is now made from cheaper soda glass now.

Pyrex used to be borosilicate.

I still have sets like this and put them from fridge to microwave, and haven't had one explode yet ... but still waiting for it to happen.

Are there any alternatives that you can recommend, made of good quality glass.
Thank You.

Not really ... garage sales maybe.

Supposedly look for things with PYREX and not pyrex.

I guess when they were bought out, they started using pyrex and not PYREX for everything.

Oxo still makes it ... not sure of the quality.

borosilicate might still crack in the oven ... as opposed to soda glass exploding.

also soda glass usually has a light green or light blue tint to it. borosilicate should be totally clear.

I did not know this. Thank you for the info. I had a 9x13 in the oven with a chicken in it and it shattered. I wondered why. They sent me a new one but now I know to be careful.

Since you mentioned it, I just checked it. I bought 18-piece PYREX set. small containers are labelled as "pyrex" and large containers are labelled as "PYREX". They are in the same box.

Thanks for the info. See Pyrex at garage sales often and wasn't aware.

Sadly, in this world today, (except for buying phones and stuff), the BEST quality stuff you can usually buy is at garage sales and Goodwill stores, etc. This is the old stuff that survived since the 1960s or 70s and it'll keep surviving (unless you break it or something). The new stuff just isn't the same. (now I sound like an old cranky guy going "Kids these days!)
But seriously, if you have old stuff, hang on to it. But no nice plastic lids that fit, probably, so you have to go back to using foil or plastic wrap. I gotta admit the snap-on lids are handy (though sometimes they go bad and crack after some use.)

Were they bought out in 70s?

Bought some from Pyrex Store.
Using it as food storage but haven't tried it yet in the over or microwave.
Will look into Amazon basics.
Thank You.

You can find classic PYREX bowl sets from the '50s & '60s on eBay. They're one each light yellow, blue, green and red. In the '70s they came out with a striped version. People collect it and search it out on auction sites, flea markets, estate sales and yard sales. People value it like they value old cast iron pans. I have 3 bowls of a 4-bowl set that was my mother's. The biggest one is perfect for mixing-up a lot of anything and the slope of the sides are perfect on each one.

I have a few of the clear, round PYREX bowls with PYREX lids and a rectangular baking dish all clear from the '70s. I believe they are of the old borosilicate PYREX.

I bought a clear set of new, soda glass, clear pyrex mixing bowls but didn't like them at all. They were also more difficult to pull one out of the nested bunch because of their lips. I was planning on trying the set in this thread someday.
