    Holy shit, my cooklet parents had these. They were heavy as frick too, way more than cast iron. Always was scared to death they were going to shatter and explode billions of shards all over the place.

    So fricking glad to be on propane and stainless now.

    They're pretty much made for paranoid schizos. Glass has little to no impurities/toxins compared to metals, ceramics, and polymers. Like some people have already said, they suck ass for cooking with, but if you're actually scared of standard cookware materials, glass is a lesser evil that you'll have to live with.

    GenX. Given glass cookware. Spent more time cleaning it than cooking with it. Tossed each piece from my city roof down several stories to the dumpster while drunkenly laughing. My gawd I hated that chit.

    I do love enamle coated cast iron though which is nearly the same surface. Oh well.

      I'll never forget detonating one of those lids as a kid. My stepmother put it in the kitchen sink hot out of the oven. Then told me to wash my hands for dinner. As soon as I turned the faucet on it exploded so hard it dented the inside of the stainless steel sink.

      The lids are made of a different type of glass, the same stuff as Pyrex dishes. The cookware itself can go from the freezer to the microwave no problem, and the trick to cleaning them is literally putting them in the sink immediately after cooking

        I assure you if you throw cold water on a 400°F corningware lid it'll explode violently.

          That's what I mean; the lids are Pyrex, the pots are Corningware. They are made of different types of glass. The lids will explode from temperature changes, the pots are made to withstand them.

        Yeah I can't find a cranberry one without the internal Teflon coating at all
        I have an amber frying pan from before they adjusted the formula and it's...fine? When I got it I bartender's friend the absolute shit out of it until it sparkled, but the weird heating properties of it and how lazy I am sorta tempers my enjoyment of it.
        Kinda wanna try baking bread in it or something.

        FYI for any interested, the glass is borderline transparent to infrared, so if you were to, say, put it between you and fire, or a burner, you feel the heat as if it wasn't there. Very strange to experience for the first time.

        Might use it to melt down metal or something, that part of those ads is cool as hell.

        I got my corningware from Value Villlage and made sure the lid wasn't a greenish-tint -- I heard that newer lids were made of greenish soda-glass that breaks in the dishwasher. My clear glass pyrex lids are so strong when I dropped it on the table it didn't break.

        My Aunt used to have one of these -- I think my metal pots is probably leaking something into my water and food, but the constant immediate risk of death and maiming from shattering glass as worse than cancer at a distant point.

        The only glass cookware I have is corningware with the lids, and the really strong Pyroceram, a white glass-ceramic material capable of withstanding a thermal shock of up to 450 K (840 °F). discovered in 1953 by S. Donald Stookey of the Corning Research and Development Division, "Pyroceram was originally used in the ballistic missile program as a heat-resistant material for nose cones.["

          To be fair, you have to smack the shit of these or straight up drop them to actually damage them. And even then, there are indicators (cracks, chips, deep scratches etc.) that it's not safe to use anymore.

    You can spray on some oven cleaner and stick them in a plastic bag for a few hours. Anything burnt on will slide off after that. They take some getting used to because they hold heat differently than other cookware

    No...That was still Boomer shit.
    If GenX'ers had it it was either a Christmas or Wedding gift.
    You gotta remember: Boomers were still simultaneously locked into the "Better living through ScIeNcE" programming, as far as consooomer goods went, but couldn't fricking get their VCRs and microwaves to quit flashing 12:00, So they very often got rooked by shitty consumer goods.

      Boomers in general live in giant houses with maybe two cars if they are a couple, first a generous paycheque and then a pension, so much that their biggest complaint was a 9 to 5 office drone career with no meaning. So they have a lot of kitchen toys they rarely use even if they eat out frequently. Gen X is more used to only our own room and then apartments so we are more minimalist. The only decor I have is live plants i justify because hey they clean the air or are edible. I won't even get a waffle maker or garlic press or a knife block or tea kettle. A frying pan is good for pancakes and cooking dinner, oven dishes can be done in my wok or corningware. Eat out of corningware that i can stick in the fridge and microwave. I just slice my garlic and crush them with glass jars. My kitchenware has to be sturdy, compact, multi-function for functions I actually do.
