Everyday uses for Lab Glassware: Kitchen, Decor, & Drink Mixology
Who says Beakers are just for the Lab? In today’s modern homes, mad scientist is taking a whole new meaning. So grab your white lab coat and read below for some interesting uses for lab glassware in your home.
Kitchen Uses: This was an easy one! Most Lab glassware is made with borosilicate glass (boron oxide and silica) making it more resistant to thermal shock than other types of glass. Meaning drastic temperature changes will not cause glassware to crack. Lab Glassware, especially beakers and flasks, are a cost efficient alternative to pricey glass measuring cups. Added bonus: they come in smaller sizes, Med Lab Supply carries beakers as small as 5ml! While you think you may never need such a small measurement apparatus, you never know when you need to make a tiny teeny Jell-O shot. More on that later.
Little known history lesson: Corning, the company that first introduced Pyrex in 1915, used to manufacture all Pyrex with borosilicate glass, the same super-strong, low-thermal-expansion glass used in scientific beakers. In 1998 Corning sold Pyrex to World Kitchens, which switched to using a less expensive tempered soda-lime glass instead of borosilicate. Consumer Reports discovered in 2010, that soda-lime glassware was much more likely to shatter when exposed to extreme temperature changes (moving from a hot oven to a cold, wet granite surface, for example) than borosilicate glassware.*
Another Kitchen Use: Tired of never having enough matching drinking glasses, answer: Lab Glassware. Beakers come in a wide variety of sizes from 5mL to 3000mL. Most common size used as a drinking glass: 400mL. While Erlenmeyer flasks make excellent decanters! Using chemistry Glassware in your kitchen will speak to your inner nerd and just looks cool!
Lamps made from beakers will blind you with science every time you walk in a room.
Erlenmeyer flasks make greater center pieces holders and an ingenious way of making party favors.
The Science of Mixology:
Remember that White lab Coat: Wow you friends as a mad scientist barista. The art of the bar calls for precision, some have it down to a science! Our beakers are scientifically calibrated for accuracy, marked with milliliter increments to ensure you’re adding exactly the right amount of spirits or mixer. However, there is no need to limit Lab glassware to just measuring. Beakers, flasks, and test tubes provide the ultimate display for your cocktails…. Just add dry ice and every cocktail will look like a scientific experiment. It will be the tastiest science you ever drink!
