There's hardly a kitchen in America, and probably the whole world, that doesn't contain at least one piece of Pyrex. For those of you who have been living under a culinary rock, Pyrex is the super durable glass cooking and bakeware developed by the Corning Company in America, in the early 20th century. From measuring cups to casserole dishes to mixing bowls to custard cups, Pyrex has simple, classic designs that never go out of style. Many of Pyrex's pieces haven't changed in nearly a century. But other pieces, particularly bowls and casserole dishes, reflected the fashion colors and patterns of the day.
I have many pieces of Pyrex in my kitchen, including some bowls that we received as a wedding present nearly 34 years ago, and some other older bowls that belonged to my Grandmother. You can see them here.
When I was Googling Pyrex bowls in preparation for that particular post (I'm good, aren't I?) I came across this wonderful collective blog called, appropriately, Pyrex Collective. Many Pyrex collectors contribute to the blog, in fact it's so popular that it's spun off two more blogs, Pyrex Collective II and Pyrex Collective III.
Here are some fun entries from the Pyrex Collective, I hope you stop by one or all of the sites to check out the colorful and fun glassware that keeps the world cooking!
