Q:

What is Corelle?

A:

Corelle is a brand of dishware and glassware. It produces a strong, lightweight glass laminate made from three layers known as Vitrelle. Corelle products have been available since the early 1970s.

The layers of glass that make up Vitrelle are thermally bonded together. This makes the finished product extremely strong yet lighter than other materials. The material is dishwasher safe and microwave safe. It is also resistant to chemicals, and Corelle dishes are not prone to staining or chipping. Corelle comes in numerous styles and designs. Since the 1970s, Corelle glassware and dishware has featured more than 2,000 different designs.
