It’s always exciting for us as a company when we have the opportunity to attend trade shows in our industry. These shows allow us to reach our audience and customers and showcase the latest products we have been working on. That’s precisely why we were proud to attend this year’s International Home and Housewares Show.
This year, the event was held at the McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago. The show proved to be perfect timing for us, as we are just launching a brand new line of borosilicate glass bake ware. Specifically introducing three new borosilicate glass oven and bake dishes: a casserole/bake dish that is 9 in. x 13 in., a pie dish that is 9 ½ in. x 1.6 in. high, and a rectangular bake dish that is 9 ¾ in. x 2 ¼ in. in size. All of the dishes are freezer safe, microwave and oven safe, dishwasher safe, scratch and stain resistant, recyclable, lead-free, and made in the USA.
We decided to make this venture this past fall, as we saw a real need in this industry. If you read some consumer reports, you’ll see that there have been some issues with glass bake dishes exploding or cracking on contact because of low thermal expansion. With true borosilicate glass, like our products, this issue doesn’t exist. We saw an opportunity to bring this product to the market while simultaneously expanding our private label division. This year’s International Home and Housewares Show proved to be a great place to meet with oven and bake ware companies and showcase our newest innovations. Now look out for our borosilicate “Hard Roc” glass bake ware!
