I love the shape of this JAJ Pyrex dish! Well actually it’s the lid that I really like the shape of – that great bubble design, and the way that it relates to the handles on the dish making it easy to lift. The dish is in pretty good nick – even that terribly kitsch (but quite wonderful!) print is still nice and bold, but the lid has quite a few scratches that aren’t visible in the pics – although there’s no real damage and a bit of wear can be expected with a dish that’s probably in the region of 60 years old!

A great bit of retro pyrexware in reasonably good nick.

Dimensions: 21cm in diameter x 11cm tall (with lid on)

Price: R120

Snowflake Pyrexware Dishes – SOLD

I think it was only last week that I was saying how hard it is to find coloured pyrexware these days, especially these lovely soft pastel colours. I know I must have mentioned it as least a dozen times before, but I really do love my own collection of coloured pyrex dishes, and even for someone who doesn’t cook, I seem to get plenty of use out of them – plus they’re probably the best looking things in my kitchen! I think that these JAJ Snowflake dishes date to the late 1950s. The slightly smaller rectangular dish has a bit of wear to the pattern, and the yellow isn’t quite as bright as it used to be, but it’s still in reasonably good condition, and the oval divider dish is in great nick!

A handsome pair that I know you’ll use time and again, and when they’re not in the oven or microwave they’ll look fantastic on display in your kitchen!

Dimensions: Rectangular dish – 29cm long x 17cm wide x 4.5cm high; Dish with divider – 32cm long x 21.5cm wide x 5cm high

Prices: Rectangular dish – R95; Dish with divider – R120

Large JAJ Pyrex Dish – SOLD

I tend to avoid buying white pyrexware, preferring instead the lovely pastel hues that pyrex from the 1950s and ’60s was often produced in, but this large JAJ casserole dish caught my eye! First off it has its original lid, which is pretty rare to find, and in perfect nick nogal. And then you have that great bright orange floral motif which I just love! There are or two small areas where the paintwork has worn away on the flowers, but generally speaking it’s in fairly decent nick.

The perfect dish for for the perfect Christmas dish.

Dimensions: 13cm tall (with lid on) x 22cm in diameter

Price: R120

Pair of Pyrex Mixing Bowls – SOLD

I’ve had complete sets of these JAJ pyrex mixing bowls before, but it’s been ages since I’ve seen any for sale. Unfortunately this set is missing one of its bowls, but perhaps you wouldn’t know that if you hadn’t seen them before? You can’t really see it in the photos, but the bowls have measurements along the inside – although the measurements are in pints, so might not be that useful, but it still looks pretty cool! There’s some wear to the base of the bowls where the colour has scraped away, but on the whole they’re in good nick.

Great mixing bowls, or if you’re not a big baker, you could always use them for serving a pasta of healthy summer salad!

Dimensions: Large bowl – 26cm in diameter x 11.5cm tall; Small bowl – 18cm in diameter x 9cm tall

Price: R180 for the pair

Set of 3 Pyrex Measuring Bowls – SOLD

Bizarrely I found all three of these bowls in different spots at different times, but they’re clearly part of the same set or were at least produced by JAJ pyrex at the same time. You can’t see it in the pics, but these are actually measuring bowls with marks in pints going up the inside of each bowl. I’m not sure how useful measurements in pints will be to most SA bakers, so I think they’re probably better suited as salad or pasta bowls, although I suppose they would still make good bowls for mixing your cake batter! I love the colours, especially when all three of them sit side by side, but they also work just as well alone. The paint is a bit worn on the bases of all three bowls and there are some small fleabite chips along the rims, but on the whole they’re not in terrible nick. A great set that will brighten up any kitchen!

Dimensions: Medium bowls – 22cm in diameter x 10cm tall; Large bowl – 26cm in diameter x 11.5cm tall

Price: Medium bowls – R110 each; Large bowl – R130 / OR R300 for the set

Retro Pyrex Dish with Lid – SOLD

Unfortunately these ‘bubble-shaped’ pyrex dishes are never in mint condition (at least none of the ones I’ve come across), but I love the shape and colour of these dishes so much that I’m willing to overlook a bit of wear and tear! There’re some small chips on the underside of the lid, and the blue paintwork on the dish itself is a bit worn (see pics under ‘more’), but it’s still a fairly clean piece, and in my opinion, a very attractive one!

Dimensions: 21cm in diameter x 10cm tall (with lid on)

Price: R130
