The only thing potentially "unsafe" about it is the risk of it breaking if it's dropped too many times- and even then, it's likely to break into a few small pieces, not shatter into a million tiny shards.

It's good stuff. I have several pyrex baking dishes (well, a knock off brand actually) and a couple of real pyrex measuring cups.

Pyrex is safe although there was a thread in here a bit ago about it getting too hot and shattering into a million tiny shards. Apparantly, this is a fairly common problem with pyrex.

I have two plani pyrex bowls I got 14 years ago when I got married. I also inherited DH's grandmas' set of colored nesting pyrex bowls (4). These 6 bowls were my entire collection until last week. I got to thinking that the colored bowls were almost 40 years old. At least. They were red, yellow, blue & green. This is only on the outside, but I got worried about lead in the paint. I was afraid I would hold the bowl & transfer the lead elsewhere. I got 2 new bowls to replace them. One is ceramic & one is a large glass measuring cup looking bowl with a handle. I LOVE IT!! It looks so old fashioned. I use it everyday now. I put grandmas' up. What do you guys think, was there reason for concern?
