Well it turns out that Pyrex doesn’t say it can be used on the stovetop – that is completely my fault. You know, I just never read the bottom of the pan, or the paper insert when I bought it! Oops!
The weird thing is, though, that I got some emails (maybe seven or eight?) yesterday about Pyrex (non-stovetop) explosion stories. Darlene had maybe the weirdest one: she went to a Christmas party, the host brought out a standing rib roast to the table, and it exploded all over the guests! Can you imagine??
