Thread Name: BS: Glass frying pans?
Subject: RE: BS: Glass frying pans?
Back in the day there we owned a set of Corning's Vision Cookware. It was translucent brown or deep amber glass, which could be used directly over a gas flame (don't know about electric range coils). As I recall it took a little longer to cook things as the flame needed to be a bit lower. The other draw back was that if the pot or pan got scratched it needed to be discarded.
We still have a largish casserole pot with cover, but probably haven' used it in 25 years. Think maybe put it on eBay or give to a thrift store. Or maybe we'll throw a party and use it...naah.
