I need to replace my old Pyrex and the reviews for the ones that are manufactured now are scary. So many reports of exploding bake ware. Can you still buy good glass bake ware or should I just stick to metal?

One has a chip and my medium sized dish turned up missing. I think one of the kids baked something and brought it to school and never brought it back home. I like fiesta but hoping to stick with clear glass.
I think any time you transfer a hot dish to a cold environment or vice versa, you are going to have issues. I have older Pyrex and newer Pyrex and it is all fine. If a pyrex dish has a chip, stop using it. Thats when they shatter
I bought several 13x19 clear glass baking dishes at IKEA and 2 9x9 ones with a snap on lid (might be Anchor brand) at Walmart. Not sure if they are considered "good," but they have been working well at my house and were not expensive if someone breaks one. I bought several at once so I knew they would stack well in the cupboard. I found it helpful to put a piece of paper between them so they don't stick to each other.

So no luck funding any vintage Pyrex at my GW stores. I caved and ended up buying Anchor Hocking, but only because they have this gorgeous new rosewater colored embossed pattern called Laurel. I may have to buy more pieces.
