Hunting for Pyrex is always an adventure. A few months back, I hit up multiple thrifts in one day - at the first place, I purchased a lime green rectangular baker. When I zipped into my local Value Village later, I found the matching lime green loaf pan!
Unfortunately, I must have been distracted by the fact that these were my first pieces of this size and color because their condition was terrible. I tried Magic Eraser, soaking, Bar Keeper's Friend, and elbow grease, and this is as good as it got.
The worrisome thing on the baker is these deep scratches on the pan handle. I'm pretty paranoid about that creating weak spots and increasing the risk of Pyrex shatter.
I made an observation while photographing the pans... There are two different loaf pan sizes!
My lime pan has a Made in Canada logo (which is imprinted in reverse on the underside) and is numbered as a 212 pan whereas the flamingo pink is made in the USA and is size number 213.
That's definitely good to know for those Pyrex collectors who like stacking their loaf pans. So what do you think, would you keep the pieces even though they aren't much to look at?
