I like kitchen storage and I like glass and I like these kind of snap-on lids. Worth a try!
I have a few coupon codes that have been sitting in my Google Keep files, and one of them just expired two days ago. So I figured I better get on the stick and use them. BUT! It turns out I can only use one at a time. Ah well.
@mediocrebot wait wait wait. I’m allergic to perfume. And wisteria. How the hell is this supposed to be watery-playful-nest? Shouldn’t you show a kelp bed with a cute little otter in it? I feel gypped.
We got some off-brand Pyrex
Rockin through the night
Yeah we got some off-brand Pyrex
Ain’t it a beautiful sight?
Come on, bake this Pyrex
Ain’t nothin gonna get in your way
You can bake this fake-ass Pyrex
But not the lids, I say
@msayler That is strange, it’s the second “Convoy” reference I’ve seen in the last few days, and it was a song from 40 years ago that I thought was long forgotten (except by me, and perhaps you). I had the whole record album.
@msayler@pmarin I actually sent my mom and dad a text cause they share an account when I bought a truck this year
"I’s thumbin’ through the want ads in the Shelby County Tribune when this classified advertisement caught my eye. It said, “Take imme-di-ate delivery on this '57 Chevrolet half-ton pickup truck. Will sell or swap for a hide-a-bed and thirty-five bucks. Call One-four-oh, ring two, and ask for Bob.”
The time to buy this kinda stuff and in its tried and true major brand format was during the holiday season where 20+ piece sets were at a similar or better price point. Is “Genicook” the sister company to the makers of the “B’Pods+ Echo” wireless earbuds Meh was pawning a day or so ago?
Costco’s regular price for Pyrex is $35 for 9 of them. Their coupon book puts them up for less regularly, like $26 maybe, so this is a decent deal for a Pyrex knockoff. Plus I suppose don’t need 9 of them. Not that Pyrex is anything special, I had a baking dish explode in our kitchen, 350° glass shards everywhere. Luckily no injuries.
At least these are smaller when they explode.
@unksol I had a home cured beef roast (corned) wrapped in foil in the dish at 350°. I took it out & had it almost over the table about to set it on hot pads when it exploded. The liquid in the foil sloshed a bit & likely caused the temp change. Crazy event, hot glass everywhere!
@allem@jerirothe@jmbunkin@therealjrn they probably want a 9x9 or 9x13 standard measure since these are oven safe glass and the large ones could double as casserole dishes. Not just storage. That might have tempted me
@steeltoesenator Also, that one clearly looks like a cheaply-marketed Chinese product, since they use “tupperware” as a description of the product though of course it’s not. (is the Tupperware company still around?). I’m not sure where the stuff we bought today is made, but from the references it does appear to at least be backed by something other than a low-budget Amazon distributor of Chinese products
(there are a huge amount of cheap Chinese products that now show up near the top by default in Amazon’s pages. They must be paying hefty ad promotion premiums for Amazon to push the low-end crap while you are searching for higher-quality merchandise. For example I was searching for a name-brand of GFCI, and mixed in with it was something that was written to look almost the same description, but with no product name, at a startlingly good price. Then I realized it was a no-name Chinese clone of the product I was searching for (which no doubt was made in China also, but backed a manufacturer reputation). I do wish Amazon wouldn’t push the generic Chinese products so blatantly but I guess it’s more $$ for Bezo$.
@mbberman@whiskeyish Ditto for me. I sent them a note on Friday and just waiting on a response. Would like to know what to do with the box of broken glass as my wife REALLY would like to get rid of it one way or another.
Mine arrived this week in great condition. The glass is thick, the rubber seals lush and pliant, the shapes pleasantly symmetrical.
Slightly disconcerting that a brand doesn’t appear anywhere on the container or lid. My mama always taught me that if a company ain’t got the pride to label their stuff, it ain’t worth a spit. Mama may be wrong in this one case, we’ll see.
