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 ?
>glassware glassware

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 use

this is why corningware and pyrex are expensive as they are patented materials
I 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.
this is so well known that op has to be willfully ignorant, what a garbage thread
Baker irl and I've always though the same.

It probably wouldn't. You'd definitely burn your hand though.

Shut up nerd give me your lunch money or it's swirly time
>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
