This product is supposed to be oven-safe. I cooked a quiche in it. It sat on my oven for maybe 10 minutes before I heard a few pops. I came over and it was literally crumbling to pieces around the quiche. I could have seriously injured myself or my dog. I can't believe these are sold; I'm really angry.

I purchased a 9" pie plate to bake a blueberry pie. Made my crust, made my filling, put it all together and placed it into the preheated oven. 10 minutes into the bake I hear what was glass breaking in the oven. The pie plate burst sending shards throughout the oven and ruining my pie as well. Sent two messages to the customer service department WITHOUT A RESPONSE FROM THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT whose sold job is CUSTOMER SERVICE. I would simply tell you not to purchase anything associated with this name. They don't care about you as a consumer and their products apparently confirm this.

    I was making four quiche and was baking the pie shells. Opened the oven door. And one of the pie plates had burst and there was glass all over the oven. So I had to throw out all of the crusts because there were shards everywhere. This plate went from being room temperature to the oven. So there wasn’t an extreme temperature change. It hadn’t been banged on anything. Just exploded.

    I goofed thinking the lid that ultimately melted was made of the same material as rubber oven mitts. Company forgave me and sent another one. PS. Another plus: items aren't made in China!!! Company also has a customer-friendly way of contacting them. They have my business from now on!

    Cooked a meatloaf in oven. After removing the meatloaf I sat the 9x13 casserole dish on top of my stove burner, which was not hot. About 10 minutes later the dish exploded and threw glass about 7 feet away.

    Was cooking spaghetti squash and butternut squash in the oven at around 350 as I have done many other times. About 20min into cooking I heard a very loud noise... wasn't even sure where it came from at first. After looking around the kitchen and seeing nothing I opened the oven only to find that the dish had literally exploded in the oven ruining dinner. Let me tell you, this was a fun mess to clean up. It wasn't like the dish just cracked - it actually shattered into lots and lots of pieces. I was shocked. I also figured that even though my time would be wasted cleaning up this huge mess and my dinner ruined that I could at least contact Anchor and get a replacement dish. Unfortunately I was wrong.

    I was just as shocked to find out that they would they not replace the dish. On top of that it seems this is not an isolated incident! The fact that so many others have written reviews of almost the same thing happening really says a lot about the quality of Anchor Glassware. I am very surprised that they have not been sued due to someone being seriously injured from exploding glassware! I guess it is just a matter of time... I can definitely say I will not ever be buying Anchor glassware of any kind again now that I know their products are flawed and pose a serious chance of injury. Really too bad that a well known company such as this won't even stand behind their products enough to offer an apology and replace a broken dish. It's honestly the least they could do. Oh Well.

    So tonight I went to cook my meatballs for my meatballs subs. Put my frozen meatballs in the baking dish and stuck it in the oven. Not even 10 minutes literally long enough for me to go start a load of laundry and I heard something breaking. I came upstairs and was about ready to yell at my cat for knocking something over and breaking it. Then I realized I should check my oven. When I did I had meatballs and glass everywhere in my oven. So needless to say I have glass and meatballs to clean up now and I didn't want pizza!!

    As we do often we baked our cornbread in the Anchor ovenware. When done as always we carefully set it on the kitchen counter. After 30 to 45 minutes we heard a loud explosion and Glass shards everywhere throughout the Kitchen! And No it was not a sudden temperature change either. Needless to say nothing in the vicinity was edible due to shards chunks and tiny glass pieces everywhere. Could have been worse from other reviews I have seen just since this happened. Way back from 2009 and this was today 12/4/2022 so why is this still an issue???

    Bought 9x13 baking dish, and some chicken legs (thawed) at store. Came home. Leaned dish, prepared the food to go in the oven. Preheated oven to 375, and put the dish in the oven on a metal cookie sheet. After 3 minutes in the oven, heard a loud explosion. Found the explosion was the Anchor Hocking baking dish shattering in the oven. I believe it to be unacceptable to not even be usable for one use. My experience with their brand will be forever ruined, and do not believe that they could possibly give a resolution to correct this.

    I purchased 15 piece baking set, 24 piece storage and 3 larger ones at Belk. Opened boxes and all of them had chips inside the cookware, deep cracks and bubbles. Took to store to exchange and all the boxes they had left had the same issues. So annoyed I opened a credit card just to purchase these to make and store baby food safely. Clearly not safe. So annoyed. Don't have time for all these returns and carrying heavy boxes with a baby.
