I thought Pyrex glass food storage containers were supposed to be durable?

Post by Bob Sacamano » Mon Oct 14, 2019 5:38 pm

one of our Pyrex pieces chipped tonight, sending small slivers of glass across the sink and into my wife's finger.

a little concerning as we use these daily to store food, bring our lunches to work, etc. i had thought they were quite a bit more durable than this.

i have already contacted Pyrex to alert them.

We have numerous Anchor & Pyrex ware after tossing much of our plastic stuff. I think a few of our chipped (not sharp) from stacking in the cupboard without the lids. Never actually witnessed how they got chipped but it happens sometimes to our plates & mugs too. But, I've never had any explode in the micro or oven like some folks report.

It is, but in the end it is glass. What happened?

I think they already know. Originally Pyrex was a trade name for special borosilicate glass which was temperature resistant because of low expansion. They apparently found tempered glass to be cheaper and whoever bought the trade name began using tempered glass instead. Tempered glass is under much internal stress, so it is strong unless it gets a defect like a scratch or chip. So now there are warnings about not using scratched or chipped Pyrex. Scratched pieces can fail catastrophically. Consumers have complained in the past, but apparently not enough to change things.

I did not know that!

A search for borosilicate on Amazon turned up a few things, but most were some sort of specialty item. Several pitchers and coffee related items but no equivalent to a set of dishes like Pyrex or Anchor Hocking. We have some of each dating back 20 or more years and I WAS assuming it was borosilicate.

Pyrex is glass and like all glass items, they will chip unless you are very careful.

I have never heard of anyone using any pyrex item for "food storage".

Nothing lasts forever. If this was a new pyrex container, I would be concerned. If this was a well-used one, then years of rapid hot and rapid cold cycles will stress and degrade its performance.

"Pyrex 18-Piece Simply Store Food Storage Set" is the top choice for glass food storage at Wirecutter, so it can't be too unusual. (Their article has a section "Why is my tempered glassware spontaneously shattering?")

Durable yes. Indestructible, no.

The use of tempered glass gives the glassware a lot of resilience, but it also makes it prone to sending chips flying rapidly if it is damaged, or shattering dramatically if exposed to severe temperature shocks.

And although I've never had any issues, it seems like a small proportion of Pyrex or indeed any tempered glass containers have defects that make them more prone to failing prematurely.

As mentioned by others, most Pyrex used to be made of borosilicate glass, which due to a very low coefficient of thermal expansion, is more resistant to cracking due to thermal shock than tempered soda lime glass.

That same property also limits how well it can be tempered, but it does also have a higher untempered toughness than untempered soda lime glass. Unfortunately, I can't find clear data on the resulting toughness of borosilicate versus tempered soda lime glass.

They'll change if customers convince them they'll pay the price difference. Borosilicate glass reportedly costs 2-3 times as much for the material. That large of ratio won't carry through directly in the forming, distribution, and retail overhead to the point where the consumer makes a buying decision, but it is a competitive factor the manufacturers have to consider.

That said, some companies are catching on to the interest. From a search on Amazon, they have Farberware measuring cups and AmazonBasics baking dishes both advertised as being made from borosilicate glass.

We switched to stainless steel bake pans long ago. You don’t have to worry about a shattering event sending shards into all the food you made at Thanksgiving. Measuring cups should be polycarbonate instead of glass as well.

I use pyrex dishes to store all of my leftovers, including some in the freezer. When I make large quantities of a dish, I divvy it up into pyrex dishes. I also use larger pyrex dishes to put my cut-up watermelon, cantaloupe, etc in

Good reason for not allowing trade names in the claims of a patent.
Even better is that the PYREX trade name is still also used on borosilicate glass for lab use (from Corning) in addition to the pyrex tempered soda-lime glass (from Corning's spin off consumer products company).

Pyrex food storage containers are found at quite a few stores (Target, Sears, Wal-Mart, Bed Bath & Beyond). I've had a set in service at my house for food storage since 2007 without failure yet. However, the plastic lids are starting to become brittle and fall apart. I prefer storing food in glass vs plastic, especially if I intend to heat it in the microwave.

I have been storing food in Pyrex containers for more than twenty years. I roast potatoes at high heat in larger 13 x 9 x 2 dish, but I don't use those for storage.

I use the smaller storage containers in both the freezer and the refrigerator. I have had to replace the lids of the older pieces as the corners tear.

I have not broken a container yet, but I have chipped the granite countertop on the short journey from the sink to the dishwasher.

We have used pyrex brand storage containers for years, including as microwave dishes, and have experienced no damage at all. But nothing is immune to abusive handling albeit by accident.

We recently bought some Pyrex containers at Costco and found the instructions to "always pre-heat the oven before putting the Pyrex in" surprising. Apparently the radiant heat during the heating time can damage the Pyrex.

I do this almost daily. Whatever I make too much of and freeze goes into pyrex. All leftovers go into pyrex. Then directly into a cold countertop oven for warming to eat.

Some ovens also crank up the power really high to preheat. We make frozen cookie dough balls and bake them as needed starting from a cold oven and they turn out great at home with our Miele oven. Took some to an Airbnb with a Dacor (or maybe DCS?) oven and it burnt them pretty bad. So most ovens is probably fine to put pyrex into unpreheated, but some might shatter it.

If you ever find pyrex baking dishes that have a yellow tint instead of a green/blue tint, then they are the older borosilicate glass ones.

10 years ago, I had a Pyrex measuring cup explode when placing it on a granite counter from the cupboard.
15 years ago, I had a Pyrex glass casserole explode after baking in a 350 oven and placing on a granite countertop. Tiny shards of glass everywhere.

They used to be. I have an old Pyrex dish I use in the oven that is tough, but the new Pyrex are not as durable. They changed to a worse and less safe glass recipe without informing their customers that they were no longer going to receive the product they used to rely on. Be much more careful with it. If you want old school tough Pyrex, you gotta shop at thrift stores. That's where I got my really tough Pyrex dish. The newer ones I've gotten for the oven all broke because I treated them the way I treat my tough ones and they broke.

As for Pyrex, did not know that about the tempered glass! Bummer!
Couple years ago bought a 2 cup measuring cup to compliment the 1 cup one I bought a long time back, and the printed lettering has disappeared from the new one, so it's not just the formula of the glass that changed. :(

An article about this issue:

It is still possible to buy products made of borosilicate glass. You have to seek them out.

Knock on wood - we didnt have any explosion of pyrex.
We did have one or two that were chipped at top.

Our issue with pyrex is that the soft material lids are no longer available and they only sell plastic ones that are not lasting enough.

Lab PYREX used to be made of pyrex and still is. Kitchen PYREX used to made of pyrex but isn''t any more. Around the 1980s Corning decided to quit making kitchen PYREX of pyrex, to cut costs, and began making kitchen PYREX out of ordinary glass, but decided to keep calling them PYREX, because for six decades PYREX had meant high quallity, and they figured consumers wouldn't wise up. And apparently they haven't.

That is an insoluble problem with trade names. The company can change the nature of what is underneath the name and nobody can say boo to them. I was very annoyed one to buy some Robitussin cough drops with no Robitussin in them--indeed, no active ingredients whatsoever. But this is a risk you take with trade names. They can be whatever the manufacturer wants them to be, and if they spend decades building up a brand name with a tradition of quality and then torpedo it for a quick buck, there's nothing you can say about it but "caveat emptor." And, of course, "shame on them."

Pyrex is well aware of problems with their product; Consumer Reports exposed them in a Jan 2011 article.
https://abcnews.go.com/GMA/ConsumerNews ... d=12328800

They're manufacturing things more cheaply and are simply tolerating the problem.

I've had the same thing happen. New pyrex is not the same as old Pyrex - quality control is not what it used to be. I won't buy Pyrex any more.
What I currently use is all 30+ years old and I don't put any in the oven. I haven't noticed any shards come off of those, and I've checked carefully for any chipping.

If you do some internet searches, you'll similar reports.

I discovered this problem when I had very small, almost unnoticeable glass shards came off of the top of a (new) glass pyrex bowl. I suspect there were minute air bubbles that developed - others have reported similar problems.

It's scary because since the shards so small, it would be easy to miss them.
