Old pyrex could explode too, if you did terrible things to it. I had one go in the late 80s.
To be fair, my roommate had turned on the wrong burner on the hob, heated the pyrex to a temperature I like to describe as 'really hot' and then dumped cold tomato sauce on it.
Hot pyrex shards burned marks into my linoleum floor. It's a bloody miracle no one was hurt.
Medievalists and Medieval-adjacent. Sort-of.
