As a native son of Corning, New York - the "Crystal City,"
I love Pryex, and my stovetop is proof.
Not just any Pyrex, only vintage Pyrex. I prefer the clear and solid color Pyrex from the 1940's and 1950's over the patterned baking dishes and bowls from the 1960's and 1970's.
Like this clear tea pot.
First introduced by Corning Glass in 1915, it was manufactured for 83 years before being sold off in 1998. The name is still around, but it's no longer a Corning product, and it's now clear tempered soda lime glass instead of the original, stronger borosilicate glass.
Clear coffee pot.
There's a lot of old Pyrex out there, but it's becoming "collectable," so the prices are going up, and there seems to be less available from the pre-1960 era.
Clear sauce pan.
All of my vintage Pyrex has come from the antique stores and thrift shops of Corning, a town where there's a lot of old Pyrex waiting patiently in basements and at the back of kitchen cabinets to be used again.
And it is both useful and beautiful.
Clear pot with a blue tint.
Red, green, and yellow bowls.
Orange, red and clear refrigerator dishes.
Clear custard cups.
A set of colored mixing bowls.
Sturdy measuring cups.
The joy of Pyrex!
