PYREX was first introduced in 1915 by Corning Incorporated.
It was made with borosilicate glass. This glass was invented by the German chemist and glass technologist, Otto Schott. Borosilicate is a low-expansion glass, it’s qualities were improved by Eugene Sullivan, Director of Research at Corning Glass Works. He then named his newly improved borosilicate glass, Nonex.
An associate at Corning discovered the cooking capabilities when he gave it to his wife in the shape of a casserole dish. Corning then removed the lead from the product and Pyrex made its debut 1915.
PYREX is a mid-century staple and my favorite kitsch accessories to find when I’m in a NIFTY FIFTIES mood.
Today we celebrate PYREX!
