I love Corelle dishes!
I realize this is a really old thread, but I admit after years of refusing to use them because I didn't think they are at all stylish, I caved. My parents and grandparents had them forever. Corning was the major employer on my 5 hour rural drive to college, I have been to the museum! ugh
as years went by and my pretty ceramic dishes chipped and showed knife scratches, were not kid friendly, broke and took up 4x the space of Corelle in my cupboard. I went to the Corelle website, found a modern design I actually liked, not seen in stores, sale and coupons, etc from wherever I found them cheapest. And I am an unlikely convert.
And one other thing- tervis large (24 oz) tumblers I love, they keep drinks cold for hours, no sweating, have not faded or got cloudy in the dishwasher, have lids that can be completely closed. I got them at BBB with coupon but if you keep a close eye, they clearance old patterns at close to 75% off when you use the coupon, at that price, a no brainer. Someone else said they returned theirs. I was a hospice home nurse, my drink with ice stayed cold even in summer heat and being left in a car for a good 6 hrs.
