Thank You, Pyrex

These Baking Dishes Are Boring and Cheap, But You’ll Use Them a Ton


February 26, 2019 Home By

You stew the red sauce, boil sheets of pasta, splurge on some good parmesan and pull out the drawer under your oven to find your casserole dish. You are making lasagna, and you’ve just realized the baking dish is all of two inches deep — not a depth adequate for lasagna-making. You are enraged. Pyrex, makers of Amazon’s best-selling casserole dishes, has your back. The literally named Pyrex Deep collection is available now.

The trio of extra-deep baking dishes come in 8 x 8, 7 x 11 inches and 9 x 13 inches and add an additional 25 to 50 percent more depth than Pyrex’s traditional baking dishes. If you’re big on moussaka, many-layered dips, banana pudding or anything else that demands a bit more space, these very useful (albeit slightly boring) baking dishes may be for you. Now all Pyrex needs to do is bring back the borosilicate glass.
