Sir Thrift Wins!!!

Congrats to my Toronto vintage homeboy Sir Thrift-a-lot for his photos and haiku:

Red, yellow, green, blue
Primary set I need you
5 years now you're due

You are a winner (but you already knew that). Please email me your mailing address and I'll send it to the good folk at Bar Keepers Friend. You'll love the gift basket. 
All the best,

Sir Thrift-A-Lot's Pyrex Haiku!

You're really testing my skills here, I haven't written one of these since like grade 3! 

Red, yellow, green, blue
Primary set I need you
5 years now you're due

I don't have a grime piece of Pyrex, but I do have one that had utensil marks that I cleaned up... I bought it to do some testing (I feel like a mad scientist! ). UTENSIL MARKS & HARD WATER STAINS AWAY! 

Well, I am having a problem with my phone, so no after photos... maybe in the near future? 

& can you believe I do not think I have a beautiful set of primary bowls? Hah.

Contest Extension

We still have two Bar Keepers Friend gift baskets to hand out for PCI and PCII. I'm going to extend the contest until next Friday the 15th. If there are still no entries, we'll open up the contest again to PCIII. 

Thanks again to Bar Keepers Friend for their generous gifts. If you know of any BKF posts I can tell them about, please let me know via email. This company is jazzed about Pyrex.

Let the Contest Begin!

Alright pretty Pyrex people. 
We had a few great contest ideas. Here's what we want: 

1. A photo of your most baked on, caked on Pyrex that has stubborn oven stains, etc. 

2. A Haiku about your favourite Pyrex score. Being a teacher, I like the language tie-in. Here's a reminder about Haiku. It's poem with three lines. Traditionally, the first line has five syllables, the second has seven, and the third has five. 

Please title your post something with the word 'Contest' in it, so I don't miss it. This Friday I'll take the names of everyone who entered from each Pyrex Collective site. Names will be cut up and put in a Pyrex bowl. I'll get my son to pick the winner. 

* If I only get one response from a PC site, they will win. I will email the lucky winners to get mailing info which I will forward to the good people at Bar Keepers Friend. 

Please use one of their products to clean your grubby Pyrex and post an 'after' photo. Thanks to Sir Thrift-a-lot for being such a proper contest idea generator! 

Have fun and rock on!
