Help! Pyrex vs, Corningware??

What do you know about Pyrex and Corningware?  What do you have, and what do you think is better to register for?  Thank you! Smile

Re: Help! Pyrex vs, Corningware??

  • I like Pyrex baking dishes for brownies, casseroles, and I especially love Pyrex measuring cups.  That being said, I was also raised on Corningware for smaller casserole dishes (taller sides and usually a nice glass lid) and for pot-luck or big family dinners... corningware was all over the table.  So... maybe not one or the other, but a good mix to cover the different sizes of dishes you anticipate using.  

    HTH! :-)

  • We have both and love them.  If you're registering, I suggest registering for both.

  • We're registering for corningware for casserole dishes - like PP said - with the glass lids.

  • i have both and i love them too. i dont really care for the round corningware, because i prefer casserole dishes that have handles, so i got the Corningware Etched set (and my kitchen is green so it worked) and my pyrex has handles.

    a little off topic.......i also have a set of the pyrex mixing bowls (the set of 4 with lids) and they are fantastic

    I only have a set of 3, but they are the greatest thing ever. So useful.

  • I also registered for both, and have already received all of it between showers and early wedding presents.

  • I third the pyrex mixing bowls with lids (we actually got a set of 4 bowls w/lids from Costco).  I like pyrex for baking--we got a set that has plastic airtight lids, which I'm excited about.  We also got a set of round corningwares, which is what I grew up with, with the glass lids.  Le Creuset stoneware is also nice for baking.  I don't know if corningware has this issue, but pyrex can shatter if you go from hot to cold too quickly--this happened to my former roommate, and she thought she let the pan cool down enough--you just have to be careful.

    yes they are!
  • Thank you all SO much! I really appreciate all of your input :)
  • I love my pyrex jumbo measuring cup!  Being able to measure 3 cups of liquid in one go is awesome. 

    (I really like the rest of my pyrex, we use it often).  I do not have corningware, so Iam not super helpful.

  • Both! I love, love, love Pyrex, but also registered for Corningware casserole dishes bc the stores I registered had a better selection of them, than Pyrex ones.

  • I've never experienced Corningware, but I love Pyrex, expecially the mixing bowls with lids!! :)

  • I love the Pryex with lids- I have zero plastic tupperware anymore- I also love the big lasagna-esque pans with lids too- so I love them.
