The other day, my friend was making pork tenderloin in the oven. She was using on of those thick glass casserole dishes like the Pyrex ones. She took it out of the oven and gently sat it down. No sooner had she back up then the thing exploded! Thick shards of glass were everywhere. She got so lucky. What we think happened was there may have been a tiny crack or something in it and it picked that moment to blow. Be careful when using these.

temperature differential. That is usually the number one explanation for shattered dishware coming out of an oven.

Glass is a treacherous substance.

If she set it down on a wet or cold surface the sudden temperature difference can cause it to break, scattering pieces around.

I don't know about "exploding".

Check THIS out...


The two do state that all manufacturers of glass cookware caution consumers against placing hot vessels directly on a countertop or a moisture-containing surface as a precaution against rapid temperature changes that could trigger the exploding pyrex effect

Yes it is. Flying glass is bad.

Good to know. Thanks! She'd put it on the oven rack, which was already about the same temp, I think.

Me too. By far the funny scene in that movie.

I've also had a dish 'explode' with a loud pop. I set a hot pyrex dish in the sink, "to cool" (like a dumb ass).

Best to use those thingys.

They're called Hot Pads for a reason.

Because this is such an important issue, politicians were asked today about exploding casserole dishes.

Here are their replies.

Trump promised a fantastic, awesome new casserole dish because he's rich.
Cruz said something in Canadian and no one was around to translate, so I can't say what he said.
Sanders uses soviet steel and would never use something so elitist as glass.
Hilary Clinton email'ed her response but is was classified, so I don't know what she said.
And
Obama just panicked when the question was asked so he released 5 GITMO prisoners and made tougher gun laws.

(Sorry, but I thought I'd have some fun with the topic)
