As far as glass kitchenware, Pyrex is still my number one. The quality is top notch and the colours and patterns are the best. So where does Fire-king fit into this? Well, it isn't Pyrex but it still does have its merits. Some of the patterns are very lovely, almost Pyrex like and could even be easily confused as being Pyrex. But, if you look really closely, the milk glass isn't as white and the patterns look like they almost might wear off. It just isn't the same quality as Pyrex. The plus side to Fire-King is it's price and availability. Finding Pyrex items other than bowls and casserole sets are near impossible around here. What about baking dishes? To order these Pyrex items on eBay or Etsy gets very pricey. No worries, there seems to be plenty of Fire-King in the thrift store and it is cheap. Here's what I found.
This loaf pan was thrifted at Salvation Army for $5!
I love the detail in its pattern not to mention the colours. It is called "Meadow Green" and was released in 1967.
Although Fire-King is not my number one favourite here are some other Fire-King items that are really quite striking and I would be snapping up given the chance.
Love these tulips!
Simple but striking.
