I had one of these and it exploded when I poured boiling water into it and I mean it literally made a huge bang! It was fairly new too. I have scars on my hand from the shards of glass. Though may well have been faulty. Saying that I have another one and it's fine! Good price, just perhaps don't pour water in fresh from the kettle!

Was a nightmare! Freshly boiled water down both my legs, on my husbands toes, exploded jug ALL over kitchen and then 18 month old came in wondering what had happened!!
I googled 'exploding Pyrex jug' and found all sorts of info. Apparently they are now made in China and the quality of ingredients used not as good as those that originally gave Pyrex a good name.
Saying that, we have just bought another as I don't trust the quality of a cheaper version (perhaps silly of me) and I'd rather use glass in the microwave than plastic, because of all the plastic health scares. For me, no other option to use in microwave. Unless anyone else has any recommendations?

May be of interest that Sainsburys have the two litre Pyrex measuring jug … May be of interest that Sainsburys have the two litre Pyrex measuring jug on price reduction at £4.


This is the 1 litre jug, the same as the OP, and its OOS from Sainsburys

I love a good discussion about jugs

Is the lab grade pyrex stuff still made in England ? (Is Pyrex still borosilicate ? or are these that junk soda lime glass ?).

Might be better off just getting a 1l borosilicate measuring beaker. (Pyrex used to mean borosilicate).

I was trying not to make my comment sound brash, not easy when writing.... I've never seen a 2 litre jug, just the 1 pint and 1 litre, I'll have to check instore

As far as I know they have a factory in cramlington (Northumberland) that's still there and producing goods.
