We have had Corelle dinnerware for years (maybe 40?). Our last set of dinner plates were wearing with chips on the edges (nothing sharp or dangerous), and the pattern totally faded. This was our second set, not made as well as the original (not a surprise). So we decided to see if someone still sold Corelle, and Macy's had them, and the Black Friday deal was excellent. Plain white was fine, since the remaining faded dishes from the old set are just about white, too. We love the weight (not too heavy), the flexibility (oven and microwave safe), and durability of the glass product. We hope they don't stop making them, because they are so much better than stoneware and not as fragile as china.
