Ever since I became a stay at home mom, I cook a lot more.  It was also the time that I realized how important your cookwares are if you prepare and cook food for your loved ones.  To be honest, months into cooking more often, I wanted to throw everything I owned - the non-stick pans, and the old pans and pots.  I've always been looking for a cooking partner that will last for years and yet won't look old nor ugly, such as the Luminarc glass cookware my mom handed down to me, which my husband accidentally broke into pieces a few months ago.

WHAT?  Not only it had a sentimental value to me, it's the most durable piece of cookware I had.  So I went searching for Luminarc glass cookware (because believe me, the cookware my mom had lasted for years) and praise God, I received one last month!  Just in time for the holidays!

I road-tested it for weeks and I am happy to tell you that my chef-mom heart is beaming with joy and satisfaction for !  One, I am ecstatic that my broken Luminarc now has a replacement.  Two, because I know this is definitely something that would not leave me disappointment in the kitchen department for years to come.  Just like how a Luminarc didn't disappoint my mom.

Here are some of the reasons why I am raving about the Luminarc Vitro Blooming Casserole.

1. It's Versatile - The Luminarc Vitro Blooming may be used on top of any direct heat source.  Because of its unique high thermal resistance properties, it's suitable for use on the following:
  • Gas stoves
  • Electric stoves
  • Induction stoves
  • Oven
  • Halogen
  • Ceramic
  • Microwave
I have been using our dependable 2-burner gas stove and the Luminarc Vitro Blooming casserole works well with it.  Imagine the casserole subjected to direct blue flame fire and yet it doesn't break!  Our old casserole had stood the test of time over direct fire. Whatever your cooking partner is, the Vitro Blooming casserole can stand the heat!

2.  It's highly heat resistant.  it can withstand temperatures from -40C to 800C and tolerate fluctuations in temperature (up to 380C), which means it can be transferred directly from freezer to oven or direct flame for reheating, thus saving precious time and energy.  In fact this material was even used by N.A.S.A during the design of the external ties of the space shuttle.  Imagine the heat coming from a space ship!

3.  It's easy to clean and store.  Easy to clean and dishwasher safe, it fits modern lifestyles making it a perfect addition to small and large kitchens.  What I personally love about this is that because it's made of glass, left-over food or burnt foods could easily be removed.  I also didn't need to be extra concerned about scrubbing it fearing some layers or coats might be scraped off and make the pan/casserole less useful or less functional, unlike other cookware materials.

4.  It's Durable.  Luminarc Vitro is made of Vitro-ceramic material which guarantees exceptional thermal, mechanical and chemical reisistant.  Having tested or used in N.A.S.A. also says a lot about this casseroles durability.  Plus like what I've shared, my previous Luminarc cookware stood the test of time!

5. It's practical and convenient.  Instead of separate cookware to boil, stew, steam, fry, roast and grill, Luminarc Vitro does it all, which can go from the freezer to the fire and directly to the table. Ideal for those who do not want the hassle of  dishing food from cookware to serving ware, saving you time and less dishes to wash up later.  Us moms, we don't have the luxury of time and extra energy, so anything more convenient to do and use, we instantly fall in love with.  I am sure, like me you'll love the convenience of having the casserole too!

5.  I'ts environmentally safe.  It's 100% Hygienic / Non Porous.  Luminarc Vitro is produced with the latest technology and made from pure and natural materials with extremely fine pores, anti-bacterial, odor and stain free, making your food 100% safe and hygienic for consumption.

6.  New and Improved Design VITRO Blooming is inspired by French morning blooming rosebushes (water drop on flower) with a newly improved lid & bigger ears which allows you to hold it easily. With the lid that fits inside the rim, you will not have to face with problems of spilling when cooking. The improved rim design also prevents soup from spilling when pouring.

7.  Availability and Sizes.  The Luminarc Vitro Casseroles are available in selected SM, Robinsons, Metro Gaisano, Landmark, Gaisano Malls, Lazada, Shopee and other leading department stores nationwide.  It's also available in different sizes, from 1L, 1.5L, 2L, 3L, and 5L cassesroles.  Also available 1.5 saucepan.  There are also 2 designs or colors, Amber (the one I have) and White.  Both have the same durability and heat resistance.

I really love the Luminarc because of these qualities and I've been using it for weeks as you've seen in my IG stories. 

Some tips on handling or making the Vitro Blooming Casserole last for years:
  1. It's still breakable because it's glass so to avoid unwanted breakage, use a potholder when cooking and handling the casserole and its cover.
  2. Clean right away after use.
  3. Store in a safe place away from small children.

  2. Totally can relate to that sentiment of throwing away the old pans. Just turned two years as full time at home and one of my frustrations is scouring the bottom of the pans and pots :-( :-( I got a glassware last Christmas but I noticed a thin crack when I cooked beef nilaga in it so it must not be durable. Made it into a flower pot na lang hehhehehe. This one's worth checking ha. Thanks for sharing! :-)

    super like this review, ang sarap talga gamitin esp cooking soup. ☺️

  4. Wow super nice review. Bigla kong narealize na, ay oo nga mas maganda ang glass na cookware kesa sa mga non-stick. Kasi natatanggal yung teflon which is bad for the health. Would like to try hihi ❤

  5. Nasa wishlist ko ‘to sobra. Napaka convenient gamitin, napaka easy hugasan (wala ng kuskos ng sobra na parang nakikipag laban sa kaldero, or babad muna para lumambot yung ilalim bago hugasan), bukas sara kasi baka matuyuan kapag may pinapakuluan, kasi kitang kita na agad kahit sa malayo anong nangyayari sa niluluto... at dahil jan, mas marami pang magagawa sa bahay and mas marami ding ma se-save na time para makabonding ang family. Kaya sobra sobra ko talaga ciang gustong gusto ❤️❤️❤️ though, may iba sasabihin na ‘glass’ napaka delikado lalunna pag hinuhugasan baka biglang mabagsak, basag agad or dahil glass napaka bigat kaya may tendency na mabagsak or mabitawan. Pero hindi din namn, kasi ang mga kamay ng isang nanay ay ‘made of steal’ at every day may ‘workout’ tayo gawa ng mga chores na araw araw nating ginagawa :) Chaka kung sa pag-iingat lang naman, wala ng tatalo pa siguro sa ating mga nanay pagdating dun :) Salamat mommy, sa napaka gandang review na’to at alam na ni hubby ano pag iipunan nya pang regalo sa akin hihihihi (wishing wishing, sana sana) 🤗😘

  6. Thanks for visiting the blog and yes, super safe siya gamitin and durable as well. :)

  7. True safe and walang fear na baka may nasasama na na coating sa food na niluluto natin. :)
