Can I put a Pyrex dish with food from a refrigerator to an oven? The answer is yes, as long as you follow some basic safety rules.
In general the answer is yes
You can put a Pyrex dish with food from a refrigerator to an oven and vice versa. And why not? Pyrex's glassware has been safely used for decades, so you know it’s going to make for some great meals!
"If you want to ask a more precise question you need to specify the exact kind of Pyrex dish and the temperature in the oven" - commented another person.
You can put a Pyrex dish with food from a refrigerator to an oven. In fact, you can use Pyrex glassware for almost any cooking method: in the oven, on the stovetop, in the microwave and even in hot water. All this because glass is a very good conductor of heat and doesn't break easily when exposed to high temperatures.
Another person provided more details about the issue
A Pyrex dish is made of borosilicate glass, which has a lower thermal expansion coefficient than soda-lime glass. This means that when heated, it expands more slowly than soda-lime glass, which prevents the material from breaking or cracking. They are also safe to use in microwaves and ovens up to 450 degrees Celsius (842 °F). In addition to Pyrex dishes being safe for cooking at high temperatures, they are also good for freezing food items like ice cream because the material does not expand much during freezing. Additionally, you can put a hot Pyrex dish directly into cold water without damaging it.

You can put a Pyrex dish with food from a refrigerator to an oven, but it is not recommended. The answer was followed by a cartoon showing extreme cases of putting Pyrex dishes in refrigerator and oven. While the comment was meant to be funny, it wasn't intended as advice for you to follow.
One person shared an interesting story about his experience with Pyrex dishes
He put a Pyrex dish into the oven, and it exploded when he turned on the heat. It was lucky that he was able to pull it out of the oven in time, because if he hadn't been paying attention while cooking, he could've been seriously injured by flying glass shards!
Fortunately for him, most of the pieces were still intact enough to make a mosaic (which sounds like fun).
One person said that it is unsafe to put cold glass dishes into a suddenly preheated oven.
They say that the sudden change in temperature can cause the dish to shatter, and that you should instead heat the dish in a microwave for a short time before putting it in an oven.
I agree with this person. If you set your Pyrex dish on a hot pan or rack, then immediately put it into an oven heated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (176 degrees Celsius), there's no way that won't shatter. You would have been better off just heating up some water on top of your stove and then pouring it into your Pyrex container! A much better method would be to preheat both the Pyrex container and your oven separately until they're both at 350 degrees F before introducing one another—and even then, I'd suggest observing them closely as they come together so as not accidentally drop anything on yourself while taking care of this task simultaneously..
The answer is Yes, as long as you follow some basic safety rules.
Pyrex is a brand of glassware that's made from borosilicate glass. Unlike regular glass, which shatters when it breaks and can be sharp enough to cut you, borosilicate glass is extremely heat-resistant and durable—it will not break or shatter if you drop it on the floor (though it may still break if dropped from a great height).
So the answer is Yes! You can put your Pyrex dish with food in an oven or microwave as long as you follow some basic safety rules:
- If your Pyrex has been damaged in any way—for example, if someone knocked it off the counter and cracked it—then don't use it in the microwave until you've repaired or replaced it.
- Make sure that there are no cracks anywhere on the outside of your Pyrex dish before putting anything hot inside. If there are any visible cracks, avoid using that item at all costs.
The answer is yes. As long as you are using a Pyrex dish that is safe for use in an oven (which means it has a lid), then there are no issues. However, if you have just taken your food out of the refrigerator and placed it into an oven at high temperatures, be sure to give yourself some time before putting anything else into the oven too soon after turning it on. This helps prevent overheating problems that could result in dangerous situations like fires or explosions due to sudden temperature changes within confined spaces like kitchens or other rooms where people live
