JAJ Pyrex Bowls – SOLD

JAJ Pyrex bowls

JAJ Pyrex bowls

This is a bit of an odd assortment of pyrex mixing bowls. The style of bowl is called ‘Cinderella’ in reference to the shape of the bowl, which for some reason people seem to think resembles a slipper (I’m not sure if I see the resemblance myself!). The thing that I like most about these bowls (other than how handy they are – we use our set all the time!), is the design of the handle, which on the one side doubles as a spout for pouring – so very clever! The two floral bowls would originally have been part of a set of four bowls, and fit one inside the other. The plain blue bowl is the same size as the larger floral bowl – it’s from a separate set and can’t ‘stack’ in the same way that the floral bowls do. It’s also quite a bit more worn that the other two bowls, but still in good enough nick to use, and attractive enough to look great sitting on your kitchen shelf!

Dimensions: Medium bowls – 10cm tall x 22cm in diameter; Small bowl – 8cm tall x 15cm in diameter

Price: Blue bowl – R95; Pair of floral bowls – R150 for the pair

I really like the stylised illustration on this orange and white pyrex kitchen bowl – the subject matter might be a bit peculiar (although I suppose it makes sense in the context of the kitchen), but the execution of the design is just great! The red bowl is obviously quite a simple pattern, but still very effective against the plain white background.

A nice clean pair of pyrex bowls that are sure to prove super useful in the kitchen!

Dimensions: Each bowl measures 19cm in diameter x 12cm tall

Price: R75 each/R130 for the pair

JAJ Pyrex Dish – SOLD

It feels like absolutely ages since we’ve had a nice brightly coloured Pyrex oven dish for sale! Isn’t it just delightful? I know it’s an odd thing to get excited about, but if you saw how lovely these dishes look on display, I’m sure that you’d understand! I have a collection of pink, blue and yellow dishes in the same style that sit stacked one inside the other on permanent display in my kitchen, and they really look quite cheerful! Plus they’re the handiest dishes – we use them for everything from cooking veggies in the microwave, to baking a potato dish in the oven and taking braai meat off the Weber – and they look very cool sitting on your dinner table! An all round winner!

Dimensions: 28cm tall x 17cm wide x 4.5cm deep

Price: R120

Pair of JAJ Pyrex Bowls – SOLD

Pair of JAJ Pyrex bowls

From not having had any pyrexware on Mint for ages, we seem to have had a whole heap of it lately, and nearly all of it seems to be JAJ Pyrex. Along with Fire-King, JAJ is probably one of the biggest names in pyrexware. The company formed out of a struggling glassware company, when James A Joblings (for whom the company is named) bought the license to produce pyrexware from Corning in America. Not only did it save the family business from bankruptcy, but it introduced pyrexware to England where it proved to be a massive success. This pair of neat pyrex dishes is just one of the multitude of patterns and shapes that the company produced until it finally closed its doors in 2007 – not a bad innings! The dishes have no visible signs of wear, and fit neatly one inside the other, so will be easy to store in your cupboard or on display on a shelf.

Price: R120 for the pair

JAJ Pyrex Nesting Bowls – SOLD

This set of JAJ Pyrex bowls is incomplete, but I don’t think that you’d know it unless you had seen a set before, or unless, like me, you were lucky enough to own your own set (and I do consider myself very lucky indeed – I love my pink set of nesting bowls!). For starters there should be a fourth bowl that makes up the set – the bowl would have been white with blue flowers, and would haveĀ  been the smallest bowl in the set. Then there’s the middle bowl, which while the same make and design, doesn’t actually belong to the set – it too should be white with blue flowers, not plain blue. But when the bowls are sitting one inside the other you don’t notice the discrepancy (I didn’t!), and when you’re using it by itself no one would be any the wiser! Even when I got home (after paying a packet for the set!) and realised that one of the bowls was the odd man out I wasn’t too perturbed – it’s been absolutely ages since I’ve found a set of these Cinderella* mixing bowls, and evenĀ  incomplete they’re quite striking!

*These mixing bowls are referred to as ‘Cinderella’ bowls because of their shape, which is meant to resemble a glass slipper. One the one hand they have a handle for holding the bowl while you pour, and on the other a narrower shape for a spout.

Note: A complete set of these bowls is currently for sale on ebay for around R800, and the bidding hasn’t finished yet!

Dimensions: Large bowl – 26.5cm in diameter x 11cm tall; Medium bowl – 22cm in diameter x 10cm tall; Small bowl – 18.5cm in diameter x 9cm tall

Price: R360 for the set

I love the minty green of this JAJ Pyrex bowl, it’s just lovely! But it’s a bowl that’s been very well used and it has the scars to prove it – there are a few light scratches in the green paintwork, and the base of the bowl is quite marked, but I still think it’s a good looking bowl, and one that you’ll get plenty of use out of!

Dimensions: 22cm in diameter x 10cm tall

Price: R95
