An episode of
Hey, Remember! last night talked about Corelle dishware. I've always thought this was the perfect dish technology; it is inexpensive, durable, and ... um ... not ugly. My mother is still using the Corelle we had when I was a kid, which must be at least 30 years old. It still looks brand-new, and I don't think we've broken more than two or three pieces in 30 years. However, my wife dislikes Corelle's aesthetics, so I have to settle for prettier, but technologically inferior, dishware. (On seeing this post, my wife points out that these tradeoffs are inevitable; aesthetics aside, she says, paper plates are probably even better technology than Corelle.)

Corelle now makes square dishes with new great designs. I have 2 sets of the square at home and they are beautiful. Look online at http://ww.corelle.com
