Great for stainless steel sinks and kitchen countertops. Made with a blend of natural mineral microabrasives and gentle biodegradable soaps and surfactants. Corning Glass Works embraced the idea of using these new domestic professionals to test and promote Pyrex, and hired several home economists, including Sarah Tyson Rorer, an editor at and Mildred Maddocks of the Good Housekeeping Institute.

Beginning in 1921, a company called Joblings produced Pyrex under license from Corning in Great Britain and...

, on view June 6, 2015 through March 17, 2016 celebrates the 100 year anniversary of Pyrex, developed by Corning Glass Works in 1915.

The Test Kitchen evaluated the design of products, assessed consumer reviews, suggested new design innovations, and as a result, sold more Pyrex.

By 1936, just when the borosilicate glass patent used in bakeware was due to expire, Corning Glass Works released a new type of glass under the Pyrex brand name: FLAMEWARE, an aluminosilicate glass that could be used on the stove top.

One of the first products made for the public with this new Pyrex opal glass were a set of nested mixing bowls.

The exterior of each bowl was enameled with a different solid color; red, green, blue, or yellow.

A few years later, Corning began to look for other uses for this glass. Littleton, a Corning scientist, baked a sponge cake in a sawed off Nonex battery jar.

Her experiment revealed that cooking times were short, baking was uniform, the glass was easy to clean, and, since the glass was clear, the cake in the oven could be monitored–all advantages over metal bakeware.

Rorer’s cooking demonstrations at department stores around the country helped boost name recognition of Pyrex.
