A former pyrex baking dish.

This dish exploded into little bits while in use. It was pretty spectacular, and the explosion was loud enough to bring people running.

Old pyrex @ 200C + open the oven and let in some cold air = instant explosion.

The roast was fine, which was amazing, it just dropped down a few inches.

sad rest in pieces my favourite pyrex dish.

Looks like a Heston Blumentol dish. He probably has edible pyrex somewhere. The man is a ledgend.

Pork tasted wonderful, after it was checked extremely carefully for shards, and finished cooking.

Ashen, I guess the oven is cleaned occasionally but used often.

I've seen them do that if you put a cold Pyrex dish into a very hot oven, or pour cold liquid into a hot dish, but never just from a blast of air!  That's amazing.  Glad no one was hurt and the roast was OK.

I would send the photo to Pyrex.  They owe you a new roast and a new pan.

I should have mentioned that it was old, inherited it from MIL when she downsized into a retirement village, so it has to have been used extensively by her for 20yrs or more before it was passed on nearly 10 yrs ago. Might have had some fault lines in it from age & constant use.
