    I collect vintage Pyrex, over 500 pieces. I did purchase these but will only use them for cold salad due to the quality of them. My Target store did not have the smallest bowl so am looking for them sold separately.

  2. Danielle McDonald says:

    So.excited for these! I asked my husband for the butterprint ones. Pyrex has such neat prints. I can only find them online though.

  3. Jo Ellen Fipps says:

    I have some thick vintage Pyrex (white with blue flowers) and need to know can they be used on all cooking stove tops? Thanks for your reply.

  4. I just bought the “Tickled Pink” pattern because I thought it was really fun. However, if you are comparing it to actual vintage Pyrex there are a couple of huge differences. First of these are much thinner than vintage Pyrex mixing bowls. The white glass is more opaque than the original milk glass. The biggest difference, that almost made me not purchase them is the quality of the graphics. They are more of a decal rather than screen printed on, like the originals. For the patterns with a solid colored background, you can clearly see the seam where the design overlaps, as it is wrapped around. The graphics are not as sharp as the originals either. I took a good look at all of them and some designs were worst than others. The dots pattern looked pretty good, but the black and white pattern was fuzzy and the black not pure black. The colors overall are not as bright as they look in photos. The printing is a bit matte, rather than shiny and in my opinion, doesn’t look like it would hold up too a ton of wear and tear.

    Overall, I decided to get them, anyway because I think they will look nice on the shelf with the rest of my Pyrex collection, but if you are thinking you are getting something close to vintage Pyrex, think again.

    1. Kate says:

      Agree completely. I ordered them from Amazon and was disappointed when they arrived. They’ll do, for now… but certainly aren’t going to last like old-school Pyrex, and I might have thought twice about the cost if the Amazon listing were clearer that it’s not the true Pyrex brand.

  5. Joe Felice says:

    I like these. They make me feel happy. I once had the complete set of coneflower, not because I particularly liked the design, but because it was the most-iconic design of the day.

      I was just at the grocery store. I bought the Dots storage bowls. They were on sale. Those say Made in the USA.

  6. Marta says:

    I am wondering about the shape. If the inside mimics the outside, I don’t think these would work very well as mixing bowls. But, they are so pretty!
