About Corningware Corelle Revere
Did your mother, or even you, have those glass baking dishes that were white with the little blue flowers? Maybe you had a set of blue and white dinner plates that never broke, even when they were dropped on the floor. These are just two of the popular products from Corelle, an innovator in cookware, bakeware and other kitchen supplies since 1958. This has been an extremely popular brand throughout the years, not only because it is attractive, but also because it is easy to care for, cooks food evenly and is extremely difficult to break.
How it All Began
The first cookware from Corelle was made from a material that was a combination of glass and ceramic. This cookware could be used both on top of the store and in the oven, and even under the broiler. This material was used for decades, until the late 1990’s, when the materials used to make the cookware changed to ceramic stoneware. With stoneware, customers have a much more varied selection of colors. No matter what your color scheme is, you will be able to find Corelle cookware that matches.
The only real drawback to using older Corelle cookware is the fact that it was very heavy. The new materials make each piece much lighter, and therefore much easier to use. The new cookware can still be used in the oven, under the broiler or on the stovetop. It can also be used in the microwave, and can be used to store leftovers in the fridge or freezer. All of the products are easy to wash, and they are dishwasher safe. The non-porous surface won’t absorb flavors, and is resistant to stains. It is also non-reactive, so you can safely cook acid-based foods.
One of the popular lines of cookware from Corelle is Simply Lite. This cookware is simple yet attractive. It is 50% lighter than other similar pieces of bakeware, making it much easier to use. It is easy to store too. You can stack pieces so they can be stored in 12 inches of space. This is awesome for those who don’t have much in the way of cupboard space. The surface is non-porous and easy to clean, and all pieces in this line are safe to use in the oven and microwave. It is resistant to cold temperatures, so you can easily store foods in the fridge or freezer. This line is dishwasher safe.
French White is another popular cookware line from Corelle. It is simple yet elegant, and stands the test of time. It will go well with any color scheme or décor. The fluted design is casual enough for every day and fancy enough for formal dinners. This cookware can be taken directly from the oven to the table to the freezer. In addition to cookware products, this line also includes beautiful dinnerware items that can also be used for formal dinners or a simple dinner with the kids.
