Long-time wooter, first-time poster.
I have two sets of these already (from woot) and just bought a third. I was just lamenting yesterday that all mine are being used.
- nearly indestructible Pyrex glass
- versatile - always in use in my house
- microwavable, dishwashable, pre-heated ovensafe bowls
- Plastic Lids that will warp in microwave and dishwasher
- Lids not leakproof/waterproof
I wouldn't call this a negative, but a few of mine have small chips on the lip (which, in deference to earlier comments, isn't really a lip but smooth). These are all from where I dropped them (usually while frozen). I view this as a win since it's just a small chip and not a shattered bowl. They can all still be used.
Before I figured out I couldn't dishwash or microwave the lids, I warped a few. I was actually able to fix one with some creative microwaving (probably not too smart).
The others I replaced with leak-proof lids so I could bring these with me to work for lunch (I cycle and there was leaking with the original lids). I bought the leak proof lids directly from the pyrex site. They are currently offering buy 2 get 1 free on all these lids (I think this might be a routinely available deal).
Pyrex 7 Cup No leak Lid $3.99
Pyrex 4 cup No Leak lid $2.99
Pyrex 2 cup No Leak Lid $2.49
I would be thrilled if woot did an offer with replacement No leak lids - or maybe a set like this with original
No leak lids.
