Anchor Hocking Or Pyrex? Here’s My Story

ChristieWagner | May 25, 202007:03 PM     17

A 3rd generation Pyrex user from childhood, I decided in 2008 to try out Anchor Hocking so I bought 2 different-sized mixing bowls. I reheated some soup in the microwav because Anchor Hocking literature claims it’s microwave-safe. As I was removing the Anchor Hocking bowl from the microwave it EXPLODED, spilling hot soup all over the floor, my legs and my hands. Had I not had my head turned to talk to a friend I would have been disfigured by a face full of glass and possibly been rendered blind. Today, May 25, 2020, not realizing I hadn’t thrown the 2nd and unused Anchor Hocking bowl into the garbage, I reheated some salmon in it. As I lifted it out of the microwave, the of bottom of bowl fell out! Anchor Hocking in my estimation is cheap, dangerous junk which I will never ever buy again.
