Pyrex For Versatility ~ Your Chance To Win

Before we started our collaboration with Pyrex I knew I liked it, I've always had a few pieces, but I genuinely hadn't realised just how user-friendly it was. I expected to spend a few weeks making bizarre and interesting meals to showcase the Pyrex, but in fact I don't even need to do that. I can just cook my regular meals.

Lack of time and sheer idleness means I haven't yet cleared a space for my Pyrex in the kitchen cupboards. With it always on view I've found myself using it for all kinds of things that I previously wouldn't have even considered, including steaming vegetables, reheating foods and pretty much all of my general baking. I've been using my Pyrex a lot.

I've found that the best thing about Pyrex is the versatility and convenience. I can cook solids or liquids in the oven or microwave, put leftovers into the fridge and then reheat in the microwave. I can cut my pie or tart with an actual knife and stir with a metal spoon without scratching. It has pretty much a similar level of non-stick as silicone, but it's much easier to handle especially when you have batters and runny mixes. I can  microwave things like baked beans and it won't pit or discolour. Best of all I can put it in the dishwasher and forget about it and it comes out sparkling.

I'm really enjoying using Pyrex in my everyday baking and cooking, I have already (much to my partners delight) thrown away all of my old plastic microwave dishes with their orange tinge and delaminating plastic. I've not poured Yorkshire pudding batter down myself at all - which I've managed twice now with silicone because it is floppy. I don't have to re-wash like I do with metal baking trays because it cleans so well first time.

I'm a definite convert and so can you be because on Monday 10th June from 10.30am until 11.30am I will be joining with the 3 other bloggers from #Healthysnackchat to host a Twitter party sponsored by Pyrex.
We'll be discussing cooking convenient but healthy family meals, sharing tips and ideas, and of course there will be the opportunity to win plenty of prizes!

The party will be hosted by me (@TheBrickCastle), Eileen (@etspeaksfrom) from ET Speaks from Home, Pippa (@redrosemummy) from Red Rose Mummy, and Anna (@theplayroomblog) from In the Play Room

Pyrex are kindly offering 4 prizes of £25 worth of Summer dining essentials – making £100 worth of Pyrex in total.

Have a look here to see what we've thought of our Pyrex so far:

  1. I'm finding the same, just use it for everything! Especially the big red stoneware one I love it :D

    1. That's my favourite too, it's gorgeous. It looks lovely sat in the middle of the table :D

  2. Me too! I have replace my foil to Pyrex! Pyrex are made a good quality kitchenware and last a lifetime!

    1. I didn't ever use much foil - lots of elbow grease and washing up liquid instead!

  3. I adore vintage pyrex. I want a fridge set!

    1. Hahaha....alas I doubt they'll give us a vintage set to give away! :D
      I'll confirm exactly what we're giving away hopefully by the beginning of next week :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I read every one and try my best to reply!
