Because I had corningware and had it for many years using it for our everyday dishes I wanted more, I just wanted a different pattern, shape and color so I purchased 1 service for four receiving two more services for Xmas of the plain white square pattern consisting of the square dinner plate,the square luncheon plate, the square 22" soup/cereal bowl and a nice sized mug, filling in with the white pasta bowls, the 28" bowls perfect for a nice bowl of soup or chili, the small fruit/dessert bowls and square bread and butter plates I also purchased a large serving bowl and still need the creamer and sugar bowl, the salt and pepper and the butter dish plus a platter. Then my service for 12 will be complete and should last for another 20 or so years until I want a different color and shape again. Because I purchased the plain white dishes I can accent them with holiday pieces for Xmas as well. Perfect! I donated my service for 12 in the old pattern. Only a couple of pieces had chips in them, otherwise they were like new. I need to tell you that I use all of the different pieces depending on the meal or occassion so I had to have it all again. It is a great weight as well. I love it. That pretty much says everything about Corelle!
Big bowl for my noodle soups
I bought this bowl on a whim since I have never seen it before. I am very happy I bought it. Easy to use and a really nice size.
