Can you broil in a glass pyrex pan?

or does it not stand up to the heat?

  1. I am pretty certain the answer is no. I have had too many blow up after being set on a warm burner accidentally.

    I wouldn't try it.

      It is not for use under the all...much too hot for it..

      1. NO! Do not broil in glass, or in Teflon coated pans.

        But I confess to having used both under a low-med heat for SHORT periods of time, but then I may (yet again) be a bad example.

        1. Just to add, I'm pretty sure Corning specifically warns against putting it under the broiler though like RB I have put things like macaroni & cheese under for a few minutes to brown a recalcitrant topping or something like that. But I'd be wary of using it as an actual "broiler pan". (I also think the hotter the dish is already, like something just out of the oven, the less likely it is to be problematic.)

          1. NO!! If you broil, the pyrex will probably shatter. Funny this thread came up now. Just finished dinner, and I made roasted Sweet potatoes. Made them in a pyrex dish in the convection oven. Took them out of the oven, and transferred to a serving plate. Put the pyrex in the sink. My teen came in, and before sitting down to dinner, went to the sink to rinse something or other. The cold water on the hot pyrex totally shattered it. It was weird- did not explode- more like disintegrated. Pretty funny- scared the heck out of her!!
