Raise Your Glass To An American Icon

Pyrex is 100! 1915-2015Any cook worth her salt probably has several pieces of Pyrex glass in her pantry. It’s oven safe, easy to clean and most importantly, made in the USA. If you searched my cupboards you would find a couple of Pyrex bread pans and a mixing bowl or two. There is a vintage bowl from my grandmother, and a bake dish from my mom. I’m also the proud owner of a glass measuring cup with turquoise designs. It’s a commemorative piece, celebrating 100 years of Pyrex perfection. That’s right — Pyrex has been around for a century!

The Pyrex 100
To celebrate 100 years of glistening glass, the company is throwing a big ol’ birthday bash in its hometown of Charleroi, Pa. On May 16, 2015, Pyrex will honor the generations of men and women who have proudly made its products, including a new line of limited edition items in sassy colors like red, turquoise and lime green. The star of the party promises to be a tourist destination of epic proportions: the World’s Largest Measuring Cup. The symbol will forever mark Charleroi as the Pyrex capital of the world.

The World’s Largest Measuring Cup is so large it was officially designated by Guinness World Records on March 8, 2015. The four-foot tall cup will hold enough batter to make 3,840 4-inch pancakes!

Join the Celebration! To celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Pyrex® brand, World Kitchen has released a limited edition anniversary collection of 13 new items.
