Sat, 22 Jan 2011 20:05:40 +0000Fun Read! We've been using our set for over 20 years and had none break due to numerous drops, raising a family. Love the stuff! It stays good looking, functional, and lightweight. After all that time, we've had 2 shatter explosively when dropped (onto linoleum and hardwood floors) in the past 2 weeks. Maybe age and number of cycles in a dishwasher/microwave?? Who knows. Obviously, part of the secret to their lightweight strength is being pre-stressed between the layers of glass that they are made from. That's why failure is so explosive. While I agree the shards are small and sharp, it was not much different than cleaning up after a dropped light bulb. Unless mine start spontaneously exploding as described from some above, we're sticking with it. Still the best value for durability and functionality for the cost IMO.
Fri, 03 Sep 2010 13:20:07 +0000I bought a used set of Corelle ware at an auction 13 years ago. Never lost a piece until last night when I dropped a heavy lid from a pan onto a serving dish in the sink. It broke into five pieces.

One plate was used as a 'catch plate' for my pet's water bowl (also Corelle). I washed both pieces, placed in the dish drainer, nothing was close to it in the drainer, then the plate exploded in multiple pieces. The water was not hot or cold, the air was not hot or cold - it was like someone had shot a bullet directly through the center of it. I was amazed and very concerned. I was thinking of replacing with a new set of Corelle but not so sure. I love Corelle because it stands up to everything, I know everything has a life span, but will the new ones do this, too???? This plate sat in the floor for 6 years until the water bowl - was out of the way - so it was definitely NOT abused. I shudder to think what would have happened if the cat was drinking from it. I have since replaced his bowls, and being VERY careful with mine until I can decide what to do.

I thought it was a great product, until recently when a corelle plate broke into a hundred shards when it bumped against the kitchen sink. I cleaned up the mess, and finished cooking. This product does not break like ordinary plateware. The fine shards are very sharp and difficult to detect, and they can cause a lot of damage. Much later, after I found a few shards still clinging between my fingers causing them to bleed, I decide to throw out the entire beef stew dish I cooked. I have to wish to ingest any of those shards that can cause major internal bleeding.
