I don’t think I can even begin to tell you how much I love this set of JAJ Pyrex custard bowls!! I mean really – wee pyrex bowls that sit in a convenient metal tray to be dropped into a pan of water to make delicious custard – my dream come true (I love me a bit of hot custard!), but more than that they’re just really, really beautiful! The colours are fantastic, the ridges give them great style, and then you have the metal tray – it may be a bit worn, but it definitely adds some interest to the set! Most sites describes these as custard bowls, but I’ve seen an original JAJ Pyrex box which called them ‘baking’ bowls, so I suppose you could use them for anything really – in addition to my love of custard, I’m a really big fan of a good chocolate fondant – do you see where I’m going with this?
A most wonderful bit of vintage kitchenalia that almost made me wish I knew how to bake!
P.S. I really struggled to find any of these sets for sale online, but I did see a boring ivory coloured Fire King set for sale on Etsy for a whopping $85!
