Question: What does Cinderella Pyrex mean?

Why are some Pyrex bowls called Cinderella?

The naming of these new pieces as Cinderella likely had much to do with the popularity of the Cinderella story current at the time both in film and on Broadway. Corning marketers also hoped the underlying theme of a coveted glass object would have a subliminal effect on consumers.

Which Pyrex is worth money?

Patterned Pyrex—such as the 1956 Pink Daisy or the 1983 Colonial Mist—also tend to be valuable as a collectors item. Some patterned collections, like the 1959 Lucky in Love heart and four-leaf clover design, have been valued as high as $4,000 for one bowl.

What do Pyrex numbers mean?

In many but not all cases, the trailing digit of the model number corresponds to the capacity in pints of the bowl or dish, e.g. #043 = 1½ quarts = 3 pints. Sets were typically assigned catalog numbers similar to the model number sequence of the pieces they contained, e.g. a #470 set contained 1 each 471, 472, and 473.

Can you bake in old Pyrex?

That means that if you have Pyrex glassware made before 1998 (like this gorgeous vintage design), you can safely use it like you always have—making a baked mac n cheese casserole and leaving the dish on your cold granite countertop or immediately transferring it to the fridge for tomorrows dinner.
