I probably should have walked away from this pink JAJ Pyrex dish, but they’re so hard to come by these days that I thought that it was worth trying to save. You see it was in need of a serious scrub – the type of scrub that takes you a good day or two to do (soak, scrub, soak, scrub!). But even with all of our efforts there are still some signs of wear left over – some of the marks wouldn’t come clean, and others were caused by our scrubbing. It’s definitely clean enough to use now, and when you stack it with other pyrex dishes you don’t really notice the marks, but by itself the wear is definitely visible.
The yellow snowflake dish is the complete opposite – barely a mark on it! It’s not as deep as the daisy dish, but it’s sometimes handy to have smaller dishes for when you’re cooking for less people. We have an assortment of these pyrex dishes in our kitchen and use all of them all of the time – not only are they great for doing veggies in the microwave (or for taking meat off the braai), but they’re a great feature in our kitchen – the different colours and patterns are really striking!
NB: The daisy dish is a much softer pink than it appears in the photos (it almost looks red in the pics, but it’s definitely pink!).
Dimensions: Pink daisy dish – 29cm long (incl. handles) x 17cm wide x 6.5cm deep; Yellow snowflake dish – 29cm long (incl. handles) x 17cm wide x 4.5cm deep
Price: R210 for the pair
