Hello, my name is Connie Veneracion. I cook, I shoot, I write. But I don't do the laundry. I don't like housekeeping very much either... (more about me)

    The “OC” in me, and the “clean as you cook” had the similar disaster years ago. After grilling some chicken satay in a turbo broiler I put it in running water and there you go the sound of glass saying goodbye, you can’t use me again. And last Christmas i want to sterilize the plates and drinking glasses used by guest, I ended up breaking one of the drinking glass.

    Happy New Year Ma’am Connie! Good thing none of you got hurt. I’ve read dozens of stories of Pyrex and Anchor Hocking glass exploding inside ovens and sometimes on top of kitchen counters. I guess we really have to be extra careful when using glass pans, unless we just want to stick to using aluminum or cast irons. Stay safe ma’am and have a blessed year ahead :)

    No matter how many years we’ve been working in our kitchen, there’s always something new to learn. But I wonder why we have to learn it the hard way most of the time. BTW, the duck looked tempting.

    Wow, thank goodness you weren’t hurt. I feel your pain. The same thing happened to me a few years abo, but I thing I was roasting crispy pata or something. lol… The “explosion” was heard at my neighbors :( Stay safe

    Same thing happened to me… I was boiling some water in a glass cookware (meant to be stove top and oven safe) when it exploded into shards and tiny pieces. Thank god that I was out of the kitchen, cleaning as I go… had I been there, I would haev been shrapneled by flying glass. Not only that, years after that incident, I had a buffet party and used corning glass on top of a low flame portable stove when same thing happened, glass and contents exploded… after that, no more glass cookware, even for baking.

    That was a scary experience. Thank God you are safe.

    For cookwares and bakewares made of glass, the SOP is that it should be cooled first before washing or pouring water; same with non-stick cookwares and bakewares, or the non-stick coating will be damaged.

    Happy New Year, Mrs V! Well that’s a way to start off the year with a bang, hey? ;-) Just glad that you (and the duck) were OK. We had roast duck pancakes for New Year’s day too. Perhaps you can use your rotisserie for more yummy recipes this year. Love it!!! :-)

  8. Yes, its a good thing nobody got hurt….All’s well that ends well…. :)
