Has Anyone Tried Marinex?

MplsM ary | | May 11, 2009 02:57 PM

Not realizing when I purchased my latest set, that Pyrex is no longer borosilicate glass but rather lime-soda glass and having read the 'explosion' stories scattered around the 'net I'm a little wary of my newer Pyrex pieces.

I searched to see if I could get European Pyrex casseroles or cookware but the shipping seems to put it out of the running. Meanwhile a search for borosilicate glass cookware brought up Marinex. The prices seem reasonable. Manufactured in Brazil.

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_hg?...

It's so odd with Bodum and others now making so many borosilicate glass items that US Pyrex would be left back while other, newer brands are making a splash.

I was wondering if anyone has experience with Marinex? The Amazon reviews are not inspiring confidence.

Thanks.
