Microwaveable jugs

Hi everyone, I know I’ve spoken before about my Pyrex jug losing their markings after a few times in the dishwasher so, I bought a different brand and the same thing happened. Can anyone recommend a jug that I can use? Thanks


There are some which the measurements are moulded into the glass, like this one…


ot this one…

There are other ones if you search online.

It appears your dishwasher detergent is doing a better job than you want it to.

I would also take it up with the retailer you bought the Pyrex measuring jug from as it would be a fault under the Australian Consumer Law. Pyrex advertise their jugs as dishwasher safe, so a reasonable person would expect a Pyrex jug to retain its markings even when placed in the dishwasher irrespective of the temperature or detergent used. I’d ask for a refund and buy one without painted on markings like those above.

We have decades old pyrex (American) and PYREX (French) measuring cups and regularly put them in the microwave and dishwasher and they look like the day they were purchased.

What happens, how quickly, and what sort of jug are you looking for, eg cooking, measuring, …and material - ‘glass’, poly or similar, silicon?

What dishwasher detergent do you use and have you tried an alternative for a while with your jug? Have you put it on the bottom or a high rack as high racks tend to be more gentle (in most dishwashers).


Hello and thank you for your response. I use the jug mainly for heating milk for our morning coffee and mixing Gravox for the Sunday night roast. I use the Finish Powerball All in One tablets in the dishwasher. I’ve once ever put it on the top rack in the dishwasher. Thanks again.
