Here at Harts Of Stur, we are a leading Pyrex UK stockist. Pyrex have been an established brand now for over 100 years and celebrated their centenary in 2015. Created in America, Pyrex has been available in the UK since just after the First World War and is now one of the most well known and recognisable kitchenware brands in the UK and worldwide. Pyrex glass was developed by Corning Glass Works in the US and was originally used to manufacture glass for railroad lanterns that needed to be heat resistant to be able to handle fairly substantial temperature changes. It’s no real surprise that this was also a great material for glass cookware.
Over the years, Pyrex have developed a real global following, including in the UK and many of their products are true kitchen essentials. Still best known for their glassware, and specifically their casseroles, Pyrex dishes are known to be reliable, non stick and hardwearing. However, the company now manufactures a wide range of products designed for easy cooking, baking, food prep and serving. They have a number of different ranges from Pyrex containers to Pyrex cookware and ovenware to glass bakeware. The company does not just manufacture glassware items either, as their ranges now encompass ceramic roasters and dishes, as well as saucepans, frying pans, skillets and many other items of cookware.
