Re: Dinnerware Is So Expensive!

I have six colors of Fiestaware and I recently added their new Lapis. A beautiful blue, it goes perfectly with Polish stoneware.

The older yellow and soft green go well, too, but the Lapis is a real knock-out.

I have a big set of Dansk but bought Joy Mangano's Corelle set just for a little variety. They worked out very well, are lightweight and seem very sturdy as I haven't broken or chipped a single one.

Is Corelle light weight? For everyday dinners I used Fiestaware or Polish stoneware.

Can someone tell me if lifting four plates of Corelle would be a lot lighter weight than lifting four Fiestaware plates?

I bet Corelle doesn't weigh a quarter of what Fiesta weighs. I think Fiesta is very heavy. Corelle is featherweight.

Thanks to all who weighed in on this I'm going to start looking around to see who carries Corelle locally.

I stick with my one set of cheap Corelle, it lasts forever.

Doesn't corelle scratch?

No, I've been using it for decades and haven't had a piece scratch yet.

Corelle is lightweight. My set is square shaped and very thin/compact. I love them.

I've seen the square ones and I want a set...bad, lol. They're on my "gotta have" list. (as soon as I can come up with an excuse to buy dishes that I don't need, :-)

Re: Dinnerware Is So Expensive!

check out Walmart online....I bought a service for 12 of Corelle cost was just about one hundred dollars ...give or take a few bucks...and that was last year...they are real pretty...

there was so many pieces it took me a long time just to unpack and wash them....twelve of everything...plus two platters and two huge serving bowls...

That's good price on service for 12.
