Ultra-durable, ultra-light Corelle dishware made its pioneering debut in the kitchen in the early 1970s. For more than four decades, inspired cooks have been using it to make a statement about how much they care about the people they serve — even when it’s a Tuesday night dinner at home.
There’s an underlying story behind the most popular brand of dinnerware. It’s the revolutionary material that its made of, a special three-layer glass laminate called Vitrelle® glass, initially intended for American living rooms as part of first-generation TV screens in the 1940s.
Corning® recognized the practical qualities of Vitrelle glass when they created the Corelle brand — its light weight and combination of thinness and strength were sure to be appreciated by American households. Yes, it’s durable, but Corelle dinnerware has earned a reputation as a premium product because of its in-touch style and design. More than 2,000 patterns have been designed since the 1970s!
