JAJ Pyrex Custard Bowls – SOLD

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!

Dimensions: Each dish measures 6cm tall x 8.5cm in diameter; Rack measures 30cm long x 15cm wide x 8cm tall

Price: R220

I’m delighted to be able to show off this 1960s JAJ Pyrex dish! My mother-in-law (how strange to say that!) fell in love with all our coloured pyrex dishes when she was visiting from NZ for the wedding – she asked the question that I’m always asking – “why the heck did they stop making it?”. This pink daisy dish has a few marks that won’t clean off, but on the whole it’s in great condition! These dishes are great for cooking veggies in the microwave, and can go straight onto your dinner table without transferring your food into something ‘more presentable’!

Dimensions: 32cm longĀ  x 21.5cm wide x 5cm deep

JAJ Pyrex Bowls – SOLD

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

Pair of Pyrex Bowls – SOLD

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

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
