    The thing about glass cookware is it will literally explode if it's still hot and some moron puts cold water on it to clean it. And I was that moron once when I was a kid and I won't frick with glass cookware ever again

      That reminds me of when I was a child I would put wine bottles in a campfire until they were no longer solid, then I would dunk them into a bucket of water.

            glass's melting point is over 1000 C. you're not melting glass in a campfire.

      I was just about to say this. I had a glass tea kettle that exploded, shooting shards and boiling water everywhere. Oddly, no one was hurt even though I was holding it at the time.
      I didn't put cold water in it or anything, j was taking it from the stove to my cup to pour over some tea and it just kaboomed in my hand

      They usually explode too, not "break". Tempered glass is under an extreme amount of internal pressure, and when you compromise the structure enough all that internal energy gets released at once. You end up with thousands of tiny shards to clean up.

      They're not glass, for starters. They're pyroceram, which is a weird 60s wonder material that got used for tons of stuff. Old opaque Corningware is the same material, the only difference between the two is one's clear and the other isn't. "Glass" electric stovetops are also made of pyroceram or similar materials, they're not actually glass.

      This doesn't apply to anything pyroceram, it was used for missile nosecones. The whole point is the fact that it has nigh infinite resistance to thermal shock. You could dunk one straight from the stovetop into dry ice and it'd be fine.

      They sucked. Things would stick to them, noodles especially. They took a while to heat up. They were heavy. I never had one explode but it's a known weakness of the glass. homosexuals on the internet love them because homosexuals on the internet love nostalgia. Glass pots and pans are like the "I miss blockbuster" of cooking forums. No you don't miss driving to the store and standing in line to rent a VHS. You miss mommy and daddy taking care of you.

      The only explosions happened with obviously cracked pieces of cookware. Every material can explode when it's cracked. Cast iron and stainless steel are both known for it. Don't cook with cracked cookware.

      So most people are moronic with these, which isn't shocking because it's not like it comes with a guide. You want low and slow and patience, since these are both the extremest end of thermal retention you can get and also sticky as frick if you crank the heat up from the start. They're honestly good for deep frying since the sky-high thermal retention helps prevent dips in oil temperature you might get with non-commerical quantities of oil. Otherwise, stews and braises are what these shine at. But they are slooooww, and that's probably the real reason these died out. It's cast iron on steroids and the exact inverse of copper mauviel or aluminum-cored All-Clad.

      It's kind of a miracle they still make these, but apparently yuros are buying them. I don't think they're amazing for general purpose use, but they're amazing at their own particular niche as long as you keep in mind the physical properties. But I wouldn't recommend it for most people. It's kind of a trip to take a full pot of boiling stew to the freezer though, lmao.

      This wasn't from him cooking in it, this was from him smacking the pot against the sink when it was already cracked.

          Like a Merten carbon steel or Lodge cast iron or even a Cuisinart stainless steel pan. You don't need to break the bank to buy cookware that won't give you cancer. If you need a nonstick for eggs or whatever Oxo makes a good cheap pan

              I have some that I bought from Sam's Club that claim they are oven safe, but I only ever use them for food storage and reheating food.

    I'd never use glass for anything other than baking. Even then you're living on borrowed time. I have a Pyrex square that I use for brownies and shit. When that dies (which it will) I'm definitely replacing it with ceramic or something. Glass and heat differential don't mix.

      Real pyrex baking trays don't suffer from the same problems. First of all they heat and cool at slower rates. Also unless you are cooking manicotti or something like that they are far less prone to sticking. And their high thermal loads help in baking. Real pyrex baking pans aren't what I personally use, but they are acceptable. There is zero reason to be using a glass 4 liter pot right now.

      I got to watch a guy explode his glass baking dish while making dinner for a girl he liked. Some of the best in-person schadenfreude I've had the chance to experience.

      Parents please, pass your glassware on to your stupid children. The world needs comedy.
