You overheat your glass baking dishes

THE RESULT: Your dish could break midbake.

THE FIX: Don’t use glass baking dishes under the broiler or in temperatures 500° or over. At these temps, the glassware can break, ruining your meal and leaving you with a mess to clean up. Also, don’t use dishes that have cracks (even tiny ones) or dings, and don’t leave them on a hot burner or allow them to boil dry.
