Nice New Pyrex

Did you know that 2015 is Pyrex’s 100th anniversary? And that they have bought out some limited edition commemorative pieces to celebrate their centenary?

I must admit that I have been meaning to blog about this for a while, so its probably old news now!

In the UK there is a special edition measuring jug (which I found for £4 in my local Morrisons supermarket) and a clear glass reproduction version of the traditional cinderella shaped mixing bowls.

If you have read my blog before you will know how much I love the design of the cinderella bowls. I love the handy pourers on the sides. So if you are a minimal person who doesn’t like pattern, with a simple, modern style kitchen, do yourself a favour and hunt down one of the mixing bowls because they are so nice to use (especially for pancake batter!)

I am afraid that I cannot find a link to the new, vintage style, mixing bowls, or a decent image of them, anywhere on the whole WWW! I recently saw a photo of them in my Mums Prima magazine (which also reminded me to get my finger out and blog about them!), so the teeny tiny image in the corner of the cover of the magazine below will have to suffice. Sorry!

If you live in America, you are spoilt for choice with the commemorative Pyrex 100th anniversary pieces. There are some really pretty measuring jugs in a number of different colours. My fave is the turquoise one below.

And some lovely dotted storage dishes, similar to the original Pyrex new dot mixing bowls.

I would love to get my hands on one or two of those. Sadly, they do not ship to the UK, nor do I particularly need them as I have enough tupperware and storage containers to last a lifetime in my kitchen!

Check out the American Pyrex website for more images and their Instagram account for yet more Pyrex goodness.

    The new Cinderella bowls are fab but I wonder why UK pyrex is so pattern averse!
