I'm sad because I have to throw out my 8 inch x 8 inch pyrex.
I was baking pasta in it last night. I had it on the "gratin" mode....the element came down to toast the top of the pasta. Apparently, the element came down quite hard and hit the edge and was touching the edge for some time.
By the time I noticed it (was when I smelt the pasta burning), because it wasn't rotating. The element had "grabbed" onto the dish and wasn't going to let it go.
The burnt part of the pasta was actually really good and crunchy....still I hate to throw this dish out.
I probably need a new oven soon too...
