Microwaving in Anchor Hocking Batter Bowl

oooYUM | Dec 14, 2011 05:13 PM

So I just got this "batter bowl" in order to make microwave peanut brittle
for the Holidays.

It is a recipe that I have made before in a pan on the stovetop but never in
microwave, and I was anxious to try it !!!


I guess it was a bad thing, to start reading about glass (anchor hocking
or pyrex) exploding !!!!!
OMG !!!!
Now all I can think about is glass exploding and raining molten hot sugar-syrup
all over me and my kitchen....

Has anyone had a bad experience microwaving with these ?!?!?!?

I am so disappointed.
I just got this item today, and I was excited,
but now I am sort of
freaked out about even using it
(FWIW, I have no pyrex cookware, so I was relatively unaware of this little problem....)

Want to stay up to date with this post?
