Explosive Pyrex should have factories closed


Yes Pyrex do break consumer law in many countries. They do not tell people that their dishes explode in the oven, on the stove and in the microwave. It destroyed the vinyl flooring in my kitchen. Had to get the fire extinguisher to put the fire out. You should be able to sue them for damages.

Purchased in October 2018 for $24.00.

Potentially Dangerous Product

Buyer beware these dishes can explode.


Last week I cooked a curry in my Pyrex casserole dish (with lid) however much to my horror five minutes after I had taken it out of the oven to cool down the dish exploded. Luckily I had just moved away when it happened or it could have been fatal. Sadly we had just moved into a lovely new house and the broken glass and curry have decimated our beautiful white kitchen.

Pyrex baking disn


Opened the oven to remove dish and it exploded, i was covered in glass and cuts from the shards of glass and suffered burns from the contents!! The oven was on 180 so wasnt a high temperature. These products are highly dangerous,unsafe to use and not cheap to buy. Im so very angry and feel i should be reimbursed.

September 9th 2017 Update: Pyrex baking disn

I had a cauliflower cheese in the oven, set on a moderate heat. Had opened oven to remove the dish as it was ready. Upon opening the oven the dish exploded, covering me in boiling cheese sauce and shards of glass. Suffered burns and cuts!! Very dangerous, i would not recommend at all.

Pyrex not the same


Sad this product mothers in the family before me has been using is not the same as the one is being sold in the market nowadays. Basically, the thickness of the pan is obviously not the same. The pan is also smaller and thinner in width. So, I still use my mum's Pyrex when I need a deep dish popped in my oven :(

Pyrex dish exploded in my oven


Two days ago I made some stuffed capsicums.
I took out a glass pyrex dish and placed two capsicums in the oven and heated on 180 for 25 minutes. I checked after this time but they were still not hot enough so put my timer on for another 20 minutes.
When my timer went off I went to check and the dish had exploded all over my oven.
The pyrex dish was about 3 years old.
I am very disappointed in pyrex and will never buy their stuff again as i read they have sold to another company who have changed the product.
I will treasure my old pyrex dishes that were made from shatterproof glass prior to the company changing hands

Trusted in my kitchen


We have been using oyrex since I can remember. I really love using them as they are easy to wash and have lasted for years without any breaking incident. I use it in reheating and storing hot food without me worrying about toxic chemicals in my food. It is just a classic favourite for every mum.

What a disaster and scary incident, pyrex dish shattered everywhere in oven.



Mine shattered in the oven cooking our Xmas dinner vegetables


Do not buy. When it shatters it is scary and dangerous and such a waste of food and time. I was physically shaken by the incident. I had been a long time fan of Pyrex but not anymore.

They last forever


I have been using my Pyrex dishes for over 30 years. I emigrated from the UK, 25 years ago and brought them with me. I had quite alot given to me for wedding presents and could not leave them behind. I put them in the dishwasher after every use and they come up like brand new.

This is a wonderful dish for cooking. It's very easy to clean and good quality. A bit more expensive but I don't mind paying extra for such good quality cookware.
Well known brand, good quality, easy to clean.

This is such a useful baking dish to have in the kitchen. I use it for baking all sorts of things and its easy to clean up and I can stick it in the microwave and in the fridge. It is a bit pricey, but can be found in some larger stores or in the Corningware outlets. Overall, a fantastic and useful product which I use over and over again.
This is a great dish to have in the kitchen because its so useful. I can bake a lasagna in it or bake a bread pudding in it. It is easy to clean and the glass makes it look very pretty too.
Nothing I dislike about this product.

Questions & Answers



I need to contact the manufacturerer of pyrex as my baking dish exploded into hundreds of pieces while I was cooking. I can't find an email address or contact number in Australia. Can anyone help?

Mine did this last night. It was only about 3 years old. I am going to complain to Consumer Affairs as there are obviously safety issues.


I know its been a few years since you posted your comment, but I'm curious to know how you went? I have literally just finished a big clean up after mine exploded.
