June 26, 2018- Kohn, Swift & Graf, P.C. is currently investigating Pyrex brand for shatter prone cooking glassware.
Originally, Pyrex was made of a stronger glass- borosilicate- which could withstand the heat produced while cooking. In the years after 1998, Corelle, the company who manufactures Pyrex, began to create their glassware using a different, weaker type of glass. Consumers began to experience Pyrex glassware shattering while creating in the kitchen. Consumers were forced to incur costs to repurchase glass cookware after theirs shattered while cooking.
Testing showed that the glass used post 1998 would shatter around 99 degrees. Consumers also experienced Pyrex glassware shattering when simply putting the hot glassware on a room temperature surface. Prior to the glass switch, a Pyrex glassware product could withstand a temperature of 333 degrees.
As advertised on their website- Pyrex brand glassware claimed that the glass could be taken from “oven to ice” or “ice to oven”. Numerous customers have experienced the Pyrex glassware shattering complaints and that their advertisements fell short.
Base on consumer experience, customers claimed they would not have paid the premium price if they had known that the company switched the Pyrex glass product. Customers would have paid a much lower price if it had been anticipated that the Pyrex glassware product would shatter.
