“My Pyrex is worth something?”

Something that I — that you’re surprised at that is old and now is new again is Pyrex. And I know this is probably the least thing you expect to hear about, but in the last couple of weeks, I have heard more about Pyrex being valuable, and it cracks me up because I have a lot of Pyrex. I have Pyrex that I got as a wedding present in 1976, and Pyrex that my mother got as a wedding present in 1952, and Pyrex that belonged to my grandma and other things like that. It’s really humorous.

I have this gold — butterfly, gold bowl from the 1970s. It’s my big mixing bowl. I use it all the time. When I found out that it was worth $79.95 from Replacements.com as a replacement bowl, mine was in the dishwasher. That’s, you know, kind of the thing. And my son’s girlfriend came over and she saw my Pyrex ‘cause I was using it to make dinner, and she said, “Don’t get rid of the Pyrex. If you ever decide you don’t want it, call me.” And I thought, “My Pyrex is worth something?”

So when I had dinner with my friend last night, both of us, of course, were married in the seventies, she said to me, “Did you know that Pyrex is having a moment?” And I went, “Yes, I heard this.” And she said, “Well, I have these Pyrex bowls and somebody told me that one of ’em is worth 79 dollars,” and I started laughing and I said, “I don’t know if that’s really true or not, but it’s very interesting to find out.”So we’re, we’re kind of doing — see what we can find out about Pyrex, which is really quite humorous because it’s Pyrex, come on, we’ve used it for years. We’ve cooked with it. We’ve done everything under the shining sun with it. So I just think it’s kind of funny. The set that they talk about, the mixing bowl, is 79 dollars. I got the whole set for $19.95 in 1976.
