pyrex warmer orange retro shapes NEW

Like the weather these days. Hot as, followed by hail, the loudest thunder I think I have EVER heard, bushfires and then freezing get-the-blankie-back-out temps, Sydney is the new Melbourne, Four Seasons in One Day…
What is going on global warming? Summer is ten days away.

vintage orange pyrex warmer candle

Speaking of warming…

How ridiculously awesome is this little number? Put a lit tea light candle underneath to take your burning Pyrex love from oven to table. Yep, so hot and yet so so cool…

But it did take some effort, as all mega hotness and super coolness does. When I bought the warmer it came with an ugly speckled brown dish. So ugly I nearly didn’t buy the thing at all. Stoked I did, when months later I found this awesome retro baking dish at Brookvale Goodwill and a lonely lid that fitted perfectly, several weeks afterwards at an op shop in Cessnock, NSW.

And voilà. I’ve seen a similar one for sale on ebay [though I like this pattern better] for about $55 delivered. Mine cost me a thrifty $23. Not sure I can bring myself to sell it. Pyrex is getting so hard to find.

Now I need to organise some fabulous retro fondue and pot luck soirée.
