Many years ago, my best friend introduced me to the wonderful world of Pyrex. I was surprised since Pyrex seemed like something only fancy adults bought. I had to admit, the sturdy glass containers with a plastic lid were an upgrade from my go-to cheap, easily stainable plastic containers. I'd tried glass storage containers in the past, but after one shattered in the microwave (even though it claimed to be refrigerator-to-microwave safe), I just didn't trust glass. But, since my friend vouched for Pyrex and there were actually some really cute patterns, I decided it was time to take this tiny step towards adulthood.
I bought a plain starter set and was surprised that I actually utilized all the sizes regularly. As a bonus, I'd sometimes find Pyrex containers in fun patterns at Ross. Also, I really liked that since they were glass, they were easy to clean and never stained. The glass also made it easy to see what's inside. And so far, none of the containers that came straight from the refrigerator exploded in microwave. Thank goodness.
Anyway, since I’m on a computer all day for work, I always have an internet tab open to Amazon. That’s how I stumbled upon Amazon’s Pyrex offering, which is surprisingly good!
I’ve purchased the following sets and love them. More importantly I use them! And as I’m currently in a one-in, one-out mentality, I’ve had to get rid of the plain, original Pyrex containers. And though it hurt, it makes me exponentially more happy to see these Pyrex containers in my drawers. I donated my original Pyrex containers so hopefully they'll bring joy and usher someone else into adulthood.
I use the rectangle containers for little lunch bentos and the larger round ones for leftovers.
And not that I need it, but I’m actually very tempted to buy this Hello Kitty snapware set (also from Pyrex) that’s supposedly air-tight and leak-proof!
I can’t really justify buying more Hello Kitty Pyrex set, ugh! But if you decide to buy it or already have it, I’d love to know what you think!
Since I have limited storage space, I had to make some difficult decisions. This was one of them! The one that I bought isn’t available anymore.
I love that it came with a two-cup measuring cup! I only have a one-cup, so it was perfectly practical.
I hope you find your perfect Pyrex. Don’t worry, I’m always on the lookout, too!
