The iconic double boiler! Pyrex's Flameware Double Boiler is simply one of the best double boilers you will come across. It's a must-have for anyone who loves to bake or candy making. The classic example of this double boiler's kitchen prowess is that it allows you to see what is happening inside the double boiler from all angles, making tasks like melting chocolate less likely to end up a burned mess.

Pyrex produced its Flameware line from the 1930s through the 1970s, so all pieces you find today are at least 45 years old. Made of aluminosilicate glass and features removable handles (simply unscrew the stainless steel collars) for easy cleaning. These Pyrex pieces are quite durable and meant for regular use.

A note on use and care... Due to both age and material this vintage glassware is still susceptible to "shocking." You never want to put anything cold into a hot double boiler (bottom pot or top insert). Fill your bottom pot with room to lukewarm temperature water and slowly bring to a boil. When done working with your double boiler, allow to cool down before washing - and do not use cold water! If you need to rinse right away, ensure the water you use to wash is warm as this will prevent the thermal shock, which causes shattering.
