    Default PSA: Duralex Picardie explosion

    I searched the forums and see that itís been mentioned before but thought it may be good to have another, more recent thread.

    Tonight, I pulled a Duralex Picardie glass out of the dishwasher and it exploded in my hand (the dishwasher cycle had ended many hours before). It made a MASSIVE mess - glass was 6 feet away and all over, some was tiny shards. Thankfully, my kids were not nearby and I only have a tiny cut on my finger but it was shocking (super loud) and a huge pain to clean up. I will never use them again.

    I googled "duralex picardie glasses exploding" and multiple threads from our boards popped up. I clearly missed all of those discussions.

    Yes! I donít recall seeing them either or I would never had bought them. Thatís why I posted again - hopefully, more people will be aware and be able to make an informed choice.

    We have had a few explode and they are loud and I know immediately what has happened; the same thing has happened with the Corelle dishes as well. I will say even though it explodes I find it easier to clean than regular glass.

    It happened to me too. Not fun. I donated ours when we moved.

    We've had it happen, but we still prefer them over other glasses. Other glasses break too.
