Where could I find a transparent frying pan?


frying pan

  • What do you mean by this? A frying pan made of glass? The only transparent things I've used for actual cooking are glass casseroles similar to this one, and you'll find these in any decent cookery shop.

  • Yes, something like this but it is a frying pan. Maybe made of glass or other material.

    Yikes. Don't stoves usually provide heat that's too uneven and would tend to stress and break glass?

  • That was for filming purposes. Heat and glass don't go so well together.

Just search on www.ebay.com for "Pyrex Flameware" and you will find things like :

Vintage Pyrex Flameware Saucepan Skillet + Handle SET

Vintage Pyrex Glass Flameware Skillet w/ Handles

1930's Pyrex Flameware saute pan w/ detachable handle

It is highly unlikely that you will find a new one. The reason is that the formula r for Pyrex before 1940 was way more resistant to thermal shock , but also more expensive. The current formula is more resistant to mechanical shocks but can not take rapid cooling (like adding cold liquid in a hot pan when you are making a ragu) without shattering.

I have no info on the advantages of a glass pan except the "cool factor"

Hope this info helps.


Corning made a Visions pan - I had a set and used it for years. You might find them on eBay or at a garage sale. I didn't really like it as a pan - took a long time to heat up and then stayed hot, thus making a gas stove into an electric and making an electric even less responsive. It's not completely clear, it's kind of brownish.
