Pyrex Easy Grab Dishes are great for solving one of the classic issues home cooks have during the holidays, and throughout the year: Storing left-overs after supper is done. If the dish you baked something in doesn’t a lid, then you either have to awkwardly cover it with aluminum foil or plastic wrap, or find a plastic container with a lid and transfer the food into that.
And, if you need to transport that cooked dish for a holiday dinner or work potluck? Good luck!
Aluminum foil often falls off, allowing the food to slosh out onto your car seat. And plastic wrap comes off if it doesn’t stick well to your dish or too much stress is put on it if you have to brake quickly.
General Description of Pyrex Easy Grab 4-Piece Value Pack
This 4-piece set comes with a 3-quart oblong baking dish, a 2-quart oblong baking dish, and matching red plastic covers. They can be used in the oven, microwave, fridge, and freezer, and they are dishwasher-safe.
The 3-quart dish is 9″ x 13″, which is a standard size for baking a sheet cake. The 2-quart dish is 7.5″ x 12″, and good for making casseroles.
What Works for Me
These Pyrex dishes not only provide you with a glass dish for cooking or baking your meal, but they have lids to make it a little easier to transport it. No longer do you need to try and create a makeshift cover with plastic or aluminum foil. A better option is to use these pans to cook the food and cover it with the lids that go with them.
The Pyrex dishes are very popular even just for how well they cook or bake your food. The glass is completely food-safe and since it is non-porous, it won’t hold onto any odors or stains after it has been cleaned. It also lasts longer in its current state than if you were to use reusable plastic containers. The inside of the dish has contours that make it easy to keep clean by wiping them down and making sure no food is caught in the corners or edges. I received one as a gift a few years back and I love it!
What Doesn’t Work for Me
While the dishes themselves are very high quality, the flexible lids might give you some problems. The main drawback to these dishes is that the lid might be a little hard to fit properly. This usually just takes a couple of tries before you get it fully on the dish, but you also need to be super careful so your dish doesn’t spill. Some lids may bend if stored improperly, so the best thing to do is store the containers together in the cupboard where the lids won’t get bent. Or, you can store the lid snapped onto its dish, which is what I do.
My Pyrex Easy Grab 4-Piece Value Pack Recommendation
Aside from the slight issue with the lids, I highly recommend this set. They are great for when you need to transport food and, because they are stackable, they can help you find room in your fridge for all the holiday leftovers!
