Pyrex and Fire-King


Recently, I found some cute Pyrex and Fire-King at my local thrift shops. 

I love the practicality and durability of these dishes, but it's always fun to notice that simple baking dishes have been dressed up with designs. Let's make cooking pretty and fun! A great way for a cook to get through the monotony of everyday meal preparation.


When I first saw the yellow dish on the bottom there, I thought it had cooking residue buildup until I looked it up online and saw that it is supposed to have a brownish speckle finish.


I like the divided dish above. How handy! You don't have to mix your peas and carrots!



Until I browsed the internet to find out more about these items, I had no idea there were so many different styles and patterns! I don't have the room to keep on collecting them, but I enjoy what I have and plan to use them for cooking.

I am like CC--I too want every piece I see (but don't have room). These are great pieces. I've never seen the painted ones like the first pic. I've been wanting a divided dish for some time but every time I see one at a thrift store, I somehow talk myself out of it. Now I want one again! :)

Great Pyrex! I have a huge collection - I don't really have room for it either but I just love it. And I figure, since I use it - at least it's a useful collection!

Hi, Great pyrex dishes. They are so pretty and very practical, especially with microwaves. I like the wheat set the best.

I love vintage pyrex dishes. I have never seen the pear pattern on the first photo before. It's lovely! I will be on the look out for it now.
Happy VTT!

Those casserole dishes are beautiful. I especially like the deep red ones.

It sure is great to have vintage cooking ware, I like all the different patterns from throughout the years...makes it so much more interesting than having all new stuff!! Peace, Stephanie

I love the divided dish, you could put plain M&M's on one side, and peanut M&M's on the other side!

Pyrex is so cool. and it sems to last forever. Great finds!
