Pyrex Bundt Pan

Hi everyone! I found this today at the Sally Ann






I didn't know that Pyrex was made in France and when I saw this Bundt cake pan, I didn't expect to see that it was made by Pyrex and in France.






It is quite thick and heavy and is in excellent condition. I paid $3.99 for it.


I looked it up in my Pyrex book but could find any reference to it at all.


So I need some help from the 'experts'.....you guys! What can you share about Pyrex made in France and particularly this Bundt cake pan?






I plan on using this pan and know exactly what would bake quite nicely in it........the family birthday pound cake.

  4. Cool find. According to My Great Big Fat Greek Wedding, all WASPS are supposed to be born with a Bundt pan in their cakey little hand. This is a nice one. Let's let the bells of peace ring out in universal harmony. Bundt cakes for everyone. Especially in sexy Frency Pyrex pans.

  5. Oops. I meant to say French, not Frency. It's late and I must sleep.

  6. I think it is sometimes listed as a Jello mold, if you want to do more sleuthing.

    I have an unmarked vintage glass tube pan as well, with the little feet for resting it upside down like you do for angel food cake. I love it!

  7. That crossed my mind that it could be a Jello mold.....not a Bundt at all! Or maybe both. I'll see if a cake works in it.

  8. I've had one exactly like it since the early 70's, back when it was the rage to cook EVERYTHING in the microwave oven. It never did work too well for cakes but for years I have used it to cook meatloaf - yes, in the microwave...about 15 minutes on high is just about right!

    1. My mom has used a pan like this for many years to make meatloaf in the microwave. I've been trying to find one for a long time because I know she won't be giving it up anytime soon :)

  9. I own one. Since I learned to use it for meatloaf, I haven't cooked another loaf in the oven. Two pounds of meatload cooks in 8-9 minutes in this thing. Give it a try.

  10. I found 2 of these (different sizes) at a garage sale. So far, I've only used it as a mold to make an ice ring for a punch bowl! I thought it was rare, so I'm glad to see someone else had one. I wasn't sure if the two pieces were supposed to be used together somehow. I'll have to try meatloaf in it next :)

  11. I just bought one yesterday at a flea market but mine had a lid to it with a leaf pattern on it. I can't find anything online about this pan with a lid to it.

  12. I found an amazing pyrex france casserole and can't find any info on it either. http://wp.me/p2MA4X-d2

  13. Hi I just found one at our local tip shop. No lid though. There are a number of European emigrants in this area from the building of the Snowy Hydro scheme in Australia. It's hard to say what it would have been used for originally but a bundt style cake would make sense. I'll also give the microwave meatloaf idea a go - thanks
