I need to bake 2 small grad caps for Sunday. A friend loaned me a small 3 cup glass pyrex bowl since I couldn't find anything in my local stores. It says no range top & no broiler on the bottom of it....but it doesn't say 'no oven'. Has anyone ever put one of these in the oven, with no problems? She mentioned that I might could try wrapping the outside of the dish with aluminum foil? Would that work?
That's what Pyrex is all about. Freezer to oven, dishwasher and microwave. Shouldn't be a problem at all. It's just not meant to be on a direct heat source/ flame, hence the no burner or broiler warning.
I bake with pyrex in the oven all the time with no problems. No need to wrap it.
Yep you can! I put in measuring cups in there all the time... to make cookie bowls!
YAY!!! Now I don't have the fear that it will bust. My friend said she didn't mind if it busted, but I told her I'd ask first to be sure. I thought I had read somewhere before that Pyrex was oven safe, but I wasn't sure about this little one. Thank you so much for the quick responses!
And great idea about the cookie bowl! I will have to try one some time.
