“Pyrex. It's a glass baking dish, very durable. It can go from hot to cold without cracking.”
It’s time that I come clean about something: I have a very bizarre and all-consuming obsession.
Ever since I first laid eyes on it, I’ve been infatuated with the pink Pyrex casserole dish from The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
I know some people are super into collecting vintage Pyrex—and that’s totally cool, but not really my thing.
I only have eyes for this Pyrex.
If you haven’t seen The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, stop what you’re doing. You’re missing out on one of the absolute greatest shows of all time and it’s time you correct that.
You back? Good.
If you recall, the Pyrex first appears in episode one. It’s actually super important to the plot: If Midge Maisel hadn’t drunkenly gone back to the Gaslight Cafe to collect it, she never would’ve gotten on stage. If she had never gotten on stage, we would have a very boring show on our hands.

I realize that what started as a short, informative article has quickly devolved into a bizarre love letter to a baking dish. I apologize for that. I just want you to know how much I like this Pyrex.
OK, here are the details you came for:
The dish Mrs. Maisel uses to bake her brisket is called The Pink Daisy Casserole. According to The Closet of Mrs. Maisel and PyrexLove, it was first produced in 1957 and was originally called The White Daisy Casserole.
Sadly, Pyrex stopped making the dish a long time ago. But, if you’re willing to spend some money, it can still be yours!
Here’s one on eBay that’s currently going for $59, but bidders have another week to drive that price much, much higher.
People are always listing their vintage Pyrex dishes for sale, so don’t be too upset if you miss out on these offers.
You can also do the normal thing and use a modern, clear Pyrex for your baking/storage needs—but where’s the fun in that?
