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.
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.
