    Dont let what has happened to me twice happen to you this Holiday Season!
    I was preparing to bake cinna buns and accidentally turned on the wrong lid.. and while placing them in the bowl it shattered into a million pieces... and i had a couple of shards embedded in my ankle cause i had turned to get some butter when it happened.
    TOday.. i had baked some stuffed shrimp.. and put the bowl into some hot water and pow! just as I was about to wash it..
    it could have been my hand...
    I went to consumer reports and found that millions of ppl each year are having the same experiences... only ending up much worse
