Do I need to lower the temperature of my oven when I bake with glass dishes?

I've noticed my 'sweet breads' aren't cooking through- should I lower the temp.?

Yes and be very careful with this glass.....don't cook on the stove with it and don't broil with it...................temps 325  or less.................then can break, burst or shatter.  Be very careful handing this cooking glass.  They are sensitive to heat/cold.  I have very old glass baking units....Some people are having trouble with the newer style.  Please just be very careful working with this glass.  My neighbor had one explode in her oven because she had the temperature too high.

Usually yes.  Glass holds the heat better than metal and usually you would lower the heat by 25 degrees and bake it for the same amount of time.  Oven temperatures vary so you have to figure out what works best in your oven.

Yes.  The newer glass dishes are not made to withstand heat as well as the older Pyrex because it is mostly made in another country.  It recommends not to heat the oven over 325 degrees F.
