they aren't really looking for advice. They are looking for validation that they are right.

People aren't required to accept the advice given, that's just silly. A realignment of your personal definition of what giving advice is may be helpful.

No way, I love pyrex, what I don't love are people that don't know how to use tools properly.

Just like a teflon pan shouldn't be used with sharp metal objects, a glass vessel or cookware should be
used with care. Pyrex is fine to cook in, but it is still glass and if you change the temperature way too quickly, it will explode. I'm convinced 99% of pyrex complaints are user error.

The only thing silly is asking a more experienced person for instruction and not following it, especially when it
comes to safety.

Like I said earlier, if we are talking advice about color preference or this tastes good or not, whatever.

Do you have a son or grandson?

Your post started good but quickly became rather sexist lol.

I have a son, and it's not unique to women. My son does it to me all the time.

I can tell him a thing, and it goes in one ear and out the other and he learns the hard way.

People aren't required to, no, but in a case like this where someone is told they are looking at serious injury at worst and destroyed goods at best, it can be worrisome when they don't.

If someone asks you something and you tell them they're risking their life not to do it the way you tell, and they insist on doing it in a way guaranteed to have a high rate of loss of life and or limb, can you honestly say you'd be perfectly sanguine with knowing you told them how to go die?

Ha, exploding glass dishes. Reminds me of the time my sister-in-law was baking my older brother a multi-tiered cake for his birthday. Kept stressing to her she needed potholders or towels or something on the counter because those Pyrex baking dishes of hers weren't invincible and CAN explode.

She kept arguing and arguing the whole bake time that it was fine, she puts them on the cold-ass counter all the time, no problem.

Sure as s#, within maybe a minute of putting all 3 on the counter, they ALL exploded. Scared the living s# out of her, too.

She started using potholders and towels religiously after that. To this day, I'm still extremely leery of glass bakeware because of that coronary-inducing afternoon. I know how to use them properly & safely, but still...
