There are some brands that you just know are worth the buy. I’m talking about the brands with products that have withstood the test of time, but they still put out new offerings that are just as good (if not better). Based on how many rave reviews we have on our site, I’m sure that a number of The Kitchn editors would back my claim that Pyrex is one of them.

For over a century, the brand’s stylish, long-lasting glassware has become iconic. In fact, vintage Pyrex is seriously coveted by collectors. But, as I mentioned, its current lineup of impressive food storage containers and bakeware shouldn’t be overlooked. I’ve brought together several Pyrex gems that deserve a spot in your kitchen, ranging from a $10 storage set to stunning mixing bowls. Scroll for my picks!

Of course, I have to put my personal favorite at the top of the list. Ever since I ditched my plastic containers for this glass set, I’ve put these stackable dishes to work every single day. The size is ideal for individual portions, the material is microwave- and dishwasher-safe, and the lids fit securely. What more could you ask for?

Odds are you’ve probably seen these timeless measuring cups in at least one family member’s kitchen. They’re beloved and usually held onto for a lifetime thanks to their durability and no-frills design. “The curved spout makes for spill-less pouring, and the handle is easy to hold one-handed while you use the other to stir or stabilize your mixing bowl,” contributor Laura wrote of her set that she’s owned for years.

If you want a guaranteed, spill-proof seal, this set is the way to go. You’ll get five four-cup square glass dishes with plastic locking lids. The set is especially suited for meal prep since the items are equipped with built-in dry erase labels. “I can’t say enough how perfect these containers are for food storage and on the go,” says one review.

You can prep, serve, and store all in one thanks to this handy mixing bowl set, which will save you so much cleaning time. “On top of making my go-to recipes a cinch, I’m loving the way the bowls have already inspired new meal ideas,” contributor Ashley’s review reads. “I can’t wait to marinate chicken or steak in one of the bowls; it’ll be so easy to put the lid on and let the juices do their thing in the fridge for a few hours before I cook.”

Speaking of all-in-one pieces, this baking set is also a must-have. It includes 13x9-inch, 7x11-inch, and 8x8-inch dishes with matching lids, and they’re all up to 50% deeper than Pyrex’s basics dishes. Like all of its other products, the nonporous glass resists stains, smells, and wear.

Another baking dish you should add to your collection is this round pie plate, which comes in a pack of two. “I bake pies regularly and bought this as a new installment for my boyfriend's new apartment,” a shopper said. “So far I've baked two old-fashioned apple pies with rave reviews from friends and family. Even baking throughout the dish. Since it's glass, you don't have to worry about scratching the bottom while slicing.”

Pyrex’s larger dish is an unquestionable essential, fit for gatherings and large meals. You can do everything from roasting vegetables to baking brownies, and you’ll end up with perfect results every time. Plus, the wide handles make for easy transport in and out of the oven, as well as from your kitchen to someone else’s.
