How do you stack your Pyrex?

Hello, Pyrex collectors. 
How do you display-stack your Cinderellas? 
Your regular mixing bowls? 
And most importantly, how do you display-stack your divided dishes?

I don't have any pictures of my stacked Pyrex at the moment. 
This is a place-holder.

I acquired another divided dish this evening (this one--simple but so pretty). I don't love divided dishes as display pieces--I always feel like mine are going to tip over. Currently I have four stacked together using Duplos (the bigger kind of Lego). My mixing bowls are held up by (needed) tupperware and non-Pyrex bowls (the bowls that my children prefer to use for cereal). I would like to move on from pilfering toys and other kitchenware--so what do you guys use?

Thanks!
Margaret Ann

  2. Margaret Ann, for any Pyrex that I stack where the bottom of a vessel sits on a lid, I use pieces of that non-slip shelf liner. I cut it so it can't be seen once stacked. It is the foamy/spongy stuff that comes in different color and it works great.

    No tips on stacking bowls. The ones I have out I use daily, so that's kind of a hassle for me.

    1. And I should have added/said, those pieces like the divided dishes where you can't flip the lid upside down on the dish and stack.

    2. Evie, I like your non-slip shelf liner idea. I worry about the slipperiness factor with the displays--esp because someone is always crashing into the shelves that hold the Pyrex. Somehow, none have fallen on our heads yet.

  3. I also like that idea, the non-slip shelf liner. One of my fears, I live in a very earthquake prone area-I would be so sad to lose my collection. So I do have quite a bit safe in a cabinet, and kind of rotate it out for my viewing pleasure!

    You know you are a Pyrex addict when the first thing you think of in an earthquake is your Pyrex! Luckily my husband has the other stuff covered :)

  4. I use pieces of styrofoam left over from packaging. Works like a charm!
