What kind of glass is used to withstand the thermal shock of glassware glassware ? Not like lids on a pot of boiling water, but the front windows of ovens / toaster ovens. What kind of glass are they ? I am more impressed by glass/ceramic stovetops , since they can have one burner on the highest setting while the other burners remain off. How does this work ?
I have boiled a pot of water, and water splashed out onto the hot surface of the glass stovetop yet it didn't crack. Is this due to the glass? Or was I just lucky ?
glassware can be made into alloys like metals can, check the oven or dish manual/manufacturer if you want to know whatever specific one yours usethis is why corningware and pyrex are expensive as they are patented materials
>>10718396I just think it's nuts that ceramic/glass can withstand huge thermal shock without cracking. I feel that even If i set my stove to the highest setting, waited 20 minutes for it to heat up , and then pressed an ice cube into the middle of the glass burner it would probably not crack.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Borosilicate_glassthis is so well known that op has to be willfully ignorant, what a garbage thread
>>10718383Baker irl and I've always though the same. >>10718407It probably wouldn't. You'd definitely burn your hand though. >>10718872Shut up nerd give me your lunch money or it's swirly time
>>10718872>While more resistant to thermal shock than other types of glass, borosilicate glass can still crack or shatter when subjected to rapid or uneven temperature variations. >Allowing high maximum temperatures of typically about 500 °C (932 °F)That isn't what i'm talking about , there are glass/ceramic stovetops that are much more impressive than that
