PYREX is a borosilicate glass product line used in the kitchen and laboratory. In 1998, the brand was sold to World Kitchen, which continues to manufacture it. Pyrex cookware is made of tempered glass which can withstand temperatures lower than boiling water or higher than boiling water. It can also be used for food storage and as bakeware. In addition to glass bakeware, the Pyrex line includes other products such as measuring cups and mixing bowls that are made from tempered soda-lime glass. This type of glass is fragile, so when using it in the oven, consumers must adjust cooking times accordingly
Tempered glass is a type of safety glass that’s heated to extreme temperatures (around 1200 degrees Fahrenheit) and then rapidly cooled to ensure it doesn’t shatter when impacted by heat or force. This process makes the glass stronger and more durable so that it won't break into sharp pieces like the old-fashioned bottle-glass used in older Pyrex dishes.
The material is also used in Pyrex bakeware such as bakeware sets, measuring cups, mixing bowls and other kitchen necessities like storage containers.
Pyrex bakeware is made of tempered glass which can withstand temperatures lower than boiling water or higher than boiling water. The glass has been chemically strengthened to help resist shattering, but you should still be careful not to drop it on the floor or into a hot oven.
Tempered soda lime glass is a type of heat resistant glass. It’s made by heating regular soda lime glass (made from sand, soda ash, lime and coal) then cooling it rapidly so that it becomes stronger and harder than regular soda lime glass. Tempered soda lime is used for cookware and bakeware because it resists thermal shock better than other types of glass cookware.
Pyrex is a brand of glassware. It's made of borosilicate glass and comes in a variety of styles, including bowls, baking dishes and serving platters.
Pyrex is oven safe to temperatures up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit (260 degrees Celsius). However, this type of glass is fragile; when using it in the oven you must adjust cooking times accordingly. Pyrex does not hold up well to rapid temperature changes or dishwashers so be sure not to put it through either one!
Pyrex bakeware is made of tempered glass, which is more durable than regular glass. Tempered glass can withstand temperatures lower than boiling water or higher than boiling water.
Pyrex cookware can be used for food storage and as bakeware in a conventional oven up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit/260 degrees Celsius. The tempered glass will not crack or break if it is heated above this temperature, but it may get cloudy or develop small cracks that are too small to affect its ability to do its job in the kitchen.
We hope that this article has helped you better understand the different types of Pyrex products and whether or not they are oven safe.
