Some time back I started reading about the cancer warnings of using plastic in the microwave. Due to my background doing repairs at chemical plants I knew too well just how toxic this is.
One of the early fights and learning curves in my marriage was my refusal to own plastic any more than absolutely needed for life. I refused to eat foods warmed inside plastic containers which led to a few bad nights. My solution was to purchase as much Corning ware as needed. Food could go from fridge to microwave with the lid on and you could see what's inside. We then found this Pyrex 10 piece glass set and our situation was resolved.
I like this set because you can plainly see what's inside without having to lift a lid. The lids fit snugly whether upside down or right side up to create confidence. One of the superior features over Corning ware is that these lids are flat and stackable where Corning lids have a raised finial preventing stacking. I do wish lids were not plastic but at least they can be removed and food heated with a paper towel placed over the glass bottom. Go from fridge to microwave for quick convenience.
This set is a great buy and will clean well and last forever. Glass bases can be used for anything making them universal. Never again will leftovers be forgotten because they are hidden from sight. Mostly this could be a smart investment in your health.
I was disappointed to say the least, as this purchase was inferior to the set I already have.
My order just arrived and I could hear that they were broken before I even opened the box. After opening the package, I can see that there is no bubble wrap or ANYTHING AT ALL protecting the containers from damage. I just called in and after being transferred to two different departments, got a voice message saying they were closed. At 5:30pm PST. Trying to upload photos but it won’t let me.
