@Homegirl. Thanks....Ive already checked eBay and think I'll have no trouble replacing my Corningware. I know you were disappointed to be unable to replace yours. Hopefully You'll find an adequate substitute.

@birdmama. I remember both of your coffee pots. I think my parents had the glass one once but they got an electric Sunbeam. I think I may still have the Sunbeam I bought.

@Kachina624 This is a little unrelated however since you mentioned Sunbeam, I am still using the same iron that I've had for over 30 years. It was a Sunbeam product that was made in the USA, so you KNOW it's old.

Thanks for posting such a fun ad. I love old ads and cookbooklets.
I still have and use my 1.5 qt blue cornflower casserole I received as a wedding gift 48 years ago. (How many dinners of noodles and cheese- sometimes with leftover ham or hot dog slices or tuna noodle casserole in those early years!)
I have another shallower 1.5 qt and a 1 qt casserole which is probably the one I use the most. Unfortunately, another wedding present a 1 qt gold round casserole, a cornflower shallow casserole, (2 or 3 qt I think) it was was my go-to pan for baked chicken parts). and a small saucepan were broken in a move.
I still use a French white tart plate but, my other French white was a big round 3 qt that I rarely used so, I got rid of it.
One Pyrex piece I always wanted was the 1.5 qt clear round casserole with the lid that could be used as a small baking dish. (Reminds me of Tuna casserole in HomeEc class - learning to make white sauce!)
Recently, I made a blueberry buckle cake in my square Pyrex baking dish and it came out better than it had in my metal baking dish. Reminded me of how much I used to bake in Corning and Pyrex. The previously mentioned round gold one was used many times in my early married days for one layer cakes.
I also have the 1982 cookbook, “Cooking with Cornelius The Corning Cookbook” by Cornelius O’Donnell who was spokesperson for Corning. He also wrote a column called “Cornelius for Corning” that appeared in various magazines.

I remember the first Temptations did not have "helper handles" and they were much heavier than more recent TT. I no longer have many pieces without the handles--don't feel they are safe to use especially for heavier items.

I don’t have any vintage Corningware (cornflower). But I do have Corell dishes from the late 80’s. Have bowls, coffee cups, saucers, dinner and dessert plates. Love and i use it daily for almost 30 years. Light, washes well and looks brand new. I had a cornflower tea pot but not sure if I broke it, I doubt I would have discarded it. It was my grandmothers. I think it was a “bank cd” gift she probably got in the 70’s!! Many people love their corningware. I have some temptations but I had not had the crazing/cracking problems as others. I do have a 9x13 red polka dot that I use a few times a week and it’s a beauty.
