This may sound like a silly question but what is the difference between Pyrex and Tempered glass?????

Pyrex is a brand name.

If you look back to about a year ago in the "Interview" section, Kevin from Xhale glass answered this question...I think.

I thought they were basically the same thing. Darn, even I didn't know Pyred was a brand name.

Ahhhhh. I thought I'd ask cause someone bought a tempered glass toy and said they wished it was a Pyrex. I was curious as to the difference.
Thanks for that, I'll go see if I can find that.

Pyrex is borosilicate glass, which is stronger and different from tempered glass. Tempered glass is still stronger than regular glass, but it is easier to scratch. True Pyrex is incredibly resistant to thermal shock and shattering, and it's why it's been used in lab settings for so long.

Ahhh right. Thanks for that.
I think I'll go with the Pyrex - which is what my 2 current glass toys are. I just saw a tempered glass toy I liked and wasnt sure if one was better than the other.
