America’s Favorite Dish: Celebrating a Century of Pyrex opens June 6. In association with the exhibition, we’re launching Pyrex Potluck, a website featuring over 2,000 Pyrex items in the Museum’s collection sortable by pattern and date. Features will include digitized advertisements, articles on the history of Pyrex and oral histories conducted by the staff of the Museum’s Rakow Research Library, who have gathered personal perspectives from designers, engineers, and marketing staff who worked with Pyrex products.
Each month, we’ll be featuring a Pyrex-related website on Pyrex Potluck where anyone who loves Pyrex can find information, photos, and lots of great stories. This month, we’re kicking off with Pyrex 100, a special site on PyrexWare.com celebrating 100 years of Pyrex. Mike Scheffki, a representative from World Kitchen, shares what you can find on Pyrex100.com.
Discover what’s in store for the Pyrex brand’s 100 year anniversary celebration in the U.S. Check out the coveted limited edition anniversary product, available for purchase through 2015. Choose from an assortment of colorful storage, measuring cups and portable bakeware bags inspired by a vintage classic. And be sure to complete your collection with the limited edition engraved pie plate with the Pyrex 100 year logo.
