I keep seeing chefs on cable food shows using Pyrex under a broiler.
From the Pyrexware website:
FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE WARNINGS BELOW MAY RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR MAY CAUSE YOUR GLASSWARE TO BREAK OR SHATTER IMMEDIATELY OR LATER.**
DO NOT use on or under a flame or other direct heat source, including on a stove top, under a broiler, on a grill or in a toaster oven.
So, when people do just like Alton Brown and put their Pyrex dish filled with cheesy cauliflower under the broiler, and it explodes, is Alton Brown to blame?
I think you should know and understand your own kitchenware and therefore Scripps et al are blameless. I'm guessing others might feel differently, especially after following a recipe with disastrous results.
** It's the "or later" part that gets me. Kinda covers all eventualities, doesn't it.
