Glassware Baking Dish Used For Baking

Updated on January 31, 2015

Glassware Baking Dish Used For Baking

Pyrex or Corningware as a brand for glassware baking dish is used for baking specifically. I have a pair of this baking glassware dish and I used it for baking or cooking casseroles mainly like desserts, cassava cake, pasta -- like lasagna. I like it as you can see the color crystal clear of the food you are cooking, and aside from that glassware are popular because it is more non sticky and easy to clean afterwards. You can immediately check the food you are baking as it doesn't stick.

Our ancestors have been using glassware even before the use of modern utensils for baking, and this is term as glassware baking dish. My mother has a collection of different sizes -- the Pyrex one. This is also good as a gift to give a newly wed couple as they will appreciate it more. It is also good for those who are living alone, -- one piece is enough for your baking needs or of you have a family, buy the different sizes for the glassware baking dish.

This glassware baking dish is used mainly for baking and not for stove top. It can also be used for microwave purposes.

Safety Precautions When Handling the Glassware Baking Dish For Baking

  • Since it is hot, you should make sure that you have a baking gloves as you might have accidents and burn your hands or be scalded. it absorbs heat faster and longer like ordinary pans which we are using.
  • Use spatula with the glassware when you turn the food you are baking, so that it will not stick the food you are baking.
  • Be sure to buy the one which is tempered meaning it is specifically for oven heating
  • Since it is easier to wash after you're done with baking and you can see clearly what you are cooking, whether they have browned already or not, glassware is good
  • Just set the cooking temperature to less than 25 F when you bake with glassware as it holds the hot temperature more.
  • The ingredients usually when you bake and use this glassware baking dish doesn't overflow so this is good
  • Glassware baking dish comes with different sizes and shapes as well but I have one oval and rectangular in shape.
  • Before you put the glassware baking dish into the oven wipe it first to remove the moist and it should not be straight form the ref, it should be at room temperature.
  • Always put the glassware baking dish in the middle of oven when baking
  • Be careful in handling it as you might drop the glassware dish and it will break as opposed to metal pans which doesn't break
  • The metal pans is prone to burning than the glassware baking dish and that is a good advantage
  • The glassware baking dish is advantageous as it cools down in lesser time even when you remove it from the oven it is still hot and can absorb heat for longer time. It also heats up slowly that is why it is advisable for slow cooking. Best for casseroles too.

      Glassware is great! And is a lot safer than so many of the other baking materials we turned to.
