What’s for dinner? Enchiladas!

Wednesday May 4, 2011


As Pyrex collectors, one of the questions we get asked the most is: “Do you actually use your Pyrex?” The question is yes, yes, and yes! We have vintage (and contemporary) Pyrex pieces are all over our house and we do use them every day. Some of the pieces we use the most are the #222 8″ x 8″ square and the #507 Heinz Promotional baking pans, as you can see here, we’ve used them to bake “His & Her” enchiladas (I sadly cannot have too much dairy, so mine has soy cheese on top). The vintage glass bakes up evenly and keeps the food piping hot, much more so than newer glass.

One important thing to remember is to NEVER put vintage glass through extreme temperature changes - we made the enchiladas in room temperature and popped them into the oven. Never take a glass pan from the refrigerator directly into a hot oven, that’s just asking for trouble. If you take good care of your vintage Pyrex, they will work faithfully in your kitchen and serve your family hot and delicious meals for a long time to come.

    I use my Pyrex daily. I have backed off using my pink mixing bowls because they are starting to show wear, but I don’t always treat them as carefully as I should.

    I’m making enchiladas tomorrow!

    Hey there, I cannot find a way to contact you so I figured I would just add a comment. Today while watching The Punisher, I noticed 2 pieces of Pyrex on the table at the dinner scene with the 3 other people in his ‘apt complex’. Butterfly Gold and Spring Blossom if not I am not mistaken. There were more dishes on the table but those were the only 2 I could easily identify. :]

    Just found your website and I’m super excited!! I had to get rid of all my Pyrex a couple of moves ago, and I’m interested in collecting again.

    However, I came across this post and something caught my eye. I was wondering if you know anything about the turquoise bowl that your rice is in. I have the same exact one and a matching smaller dish. I love them but don’t know anything about them. Anything?

    Thanks! xo
