I am looking to replace my Pflatzgraff dishes which are chipped.
I’ve had many kinds of stoneware, glass, etc., that I am very known to break. I am very rough on my tableware. I have broken so many glass coffee carafes, I can’t tell you how many! Now I have a thermal one, thank heavens!!
Seems like the dishwasher & I don’t get along, as I try to put alot in it. Then, when I go to take the dishes out, oops.
So, I got a set of Corelle for a wedding gift decades ago and didn’t break any of them. I’ve since donated them because I wanted a new color and pattern. They are the most durable dishes I know of. They are fairly inexpensive too.
They have come up with so many different colors and patterns now, and you’d be surprised how pretty they are too!! Will never chip!
Get them, if you are rough on them, like me or just because they will last so long. I have dropped the Corelle on the floor lots, too and never broke one. Great for the kids too, because they are just about non-destructable. The colors and patterns even stay on and not fade away with many washings. I like that!!
Corelle’s the way to go and you can give them away and get new styles on new ones once in a while because they are so inexpensive.
Corelle is great stuff! I still have a set from 25 years ago.
I replaced my Pfaltzgraf with Corelle many years ago. They’re tremendously durable, and they come in many different patterns. There are lots of pieces (different size bowls, plates, cups, glassware, etc.) in each pattern, so you can have a small set or a very large one. I particularly enjoy the lunch plates. I’ll confess to buying new sets every few years, just because I want something different. The old set looks like new, and a young friend moving into a first apartment has always been overjoyed with the gift. If there is a Corning/Revere outlet anywhere nearby, it’s well worth the trip.
I started using Corelle dishes when my oldest son was born. He’s now 35. I got tired of the dishes and sent them to college with another son and then my daughter. I couldn’t break the things, he couldn’t nor could she. When she broke up her apartment and wanted to bring them home, I told her to put them in an opps box, meaning she’d trip on her way out to the car and that would be the end of them. Nope, her roommate took them to use in her new apartment and so it goes.
There are some beautiful patterns, they are light weight and as I said, we couldn’t seem to break them nor chip them. The times I did drop them, they bounced and only once in all those years did one break. And when it broke, it shattered. I had the snowflake pattern. Loved it but as I said, after all those years, enough was enough.
