Before nonstick revolutionized home cooking, Pyrex was the leading brand in bakeware and cookware. Their colorful casserole dishes with matching lids and eclectic kitchenware were the staple of so many homes through the mid-to-late ’90s. Today, the brand is mostly known for their durable glass food storage containers, measuring cups, and mixing bowls, but those discontinued patterns and pieces are highly sought out by collectors and cooks alike. While true vintage Pyrex can be hard to come by, we found a secret stash of some of their rare pieces at an unexpected place: Etsy! Fair warning, the stock is very limited, so if you see something you like (or something a friend or loved one might want), act fast before it gets scooped up! See some of our top picks below.
