Our #CookWithPyrex Twitter Party

A few weeks ago I joined with three other bloggers - ET Speaks From Home, In the Playroom and The Brick Castle, to co-host a Twitter party promoting Pyrex Cookware. The party lasted for an hour and was a completely exhilarating experience!

We had a huge number of Tweeters join in with the party and gave away four sets of Summer cookware. I was quite envious of the prizes - the lucky winners received the perfect tools for Summer entertaining.

We heard suggestions for family recipes, including Baked Spanish Risotto (from me, it's one of our favourites). Other recipes suggested included Galina's All-in-one Roast Chicken and Lamb Pilaf, Anthea's Sausage and Salad Pitta Pockets and Vicki's Slow Cooked Pork in Cider and Mustard Sauce.

There were lots of those quick and easy suggestions for yummy pasta dishes, fun children's meals and one-pot wonders. Perfect for using Pyrex cookware which was also discussed at length.

It was testament to the affection with which Pyrex is held that we heard many stories of people growing up with Pyrex, inheriting sets from grandmothers and so many fond memories of using the cookware. Mel even told us that her Pyrex lasted longer than her marriage, but don't worry, she has a lovely new husband now!

The Twitter party used the hashtag #CookWithPyrex which seems to have started to become more widely used now, our little legacy of the party! We trended very quickly and, for most of the hour, trended first in the UK. We certainly got a lot of people talking about Pyrex and sharing their tips and stories.

Pyrex have some fantastic offers on at the moment. If you live within an easy journey of Washington, Tyne and Wear, they are holding a warehouse sale every Friday in July.

If you buy any two products from The Range you will get the chance to win a SMEG Fridge Freezer in the colour of your choice.You can also win cookware in the competition on the Pyrex UK site. In fact, it's a very good idea to like the official Pyrex UK Facebook page or follow @PyrexUKOfficial on Twitter to keep up with all their news, offers and competitions.

We had four lucky winners of our Pyrex Summer cookware, they were @mymummysworld, @meltinkferrari, @ohnoitsbex and @Foodie_Laura. Congratulations ladies, enjoy your prizes!
