This iconic line of products can be found in one form or another in nearly every American kitchen. Pyrex® celebrates nearly 100 years of innovative products made in the USA.
The Pyrex® brand story starts with equal parts of American invention and creativity. The heat-tempered glass that is the foundation of the Pyrex brand was created years earlier by Corning Glass scientists charged with developing lantern glass for railroads. They needed to tackle a particular problem — the heat of the lantern flame conspired with the cold air of winter to shatter traditional glass. They needed a glass that could handle changes in temperature.
By 1913, the glass was used in a number of industrial applications. But it found its way into the kitchen when Bessie Littleton, wife of a Corning scientist, asked her husband to bring home some glass to use in place of a broken casserole dish. He gave her the sawed-off bottoms of some battery jars.
A cake was baked, an iconic brand was born and, as they say, the rest was history.
Decades of Creativity
That homespun ingenuity has infused the Pyrex brand in the decades since. A distinctly American brand — Pyrex glassware is proudly made in the USA, and has been used by generations of cooks and bakers from coast to coast.
Pyrex brand’s designers develop practical refinements and unexpected uses for their products. Far more than a simple bakeware, it inspired new kinds of recipes, budgeting advice and decorating tips — all of which the Pyrex brand has published and shared with its customers. Over the years, the brand has encouraged efficiency by helping cooks to simplify the process with reliable results. They invite customers to share their creative ideas and discoveries by joining the conversation on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
