A duplicate Pyrex piece has come into my possession! I was at my local Sally Ann where I found the great Melitta teapot. I have never found Pyrex at this store because it is usually chock full of clever thrifters, but on this day, I got my hands on this classic fridgie!
This primary blue is my favourite solid Pyrex colour... no wait, perhaps the primary green from the mixing bowl set is. It's too hard to decide!
I was so happy to find this piece priced at $4, as it is in excellent condition. I love finding Pyrex that was well taken care of, because I think stained Pyrex is always a gamble. I just can't be sure that my cleaning skills will be up to snuff.
My previously purchased blue fridgie had signs of colour loss, but came with the older style lid. Did you know that the newer lids have stripes across the entire lid? The older pieces have a "clear" spot down the middle. Apparently Pyrex found that texturing the entire lid was cheaper for production.
I think one lid between the two loaf pans will do the trick for me. For some reason, I love the look of oranges with the blue Pyrex pieces... Don't you?
