HOW TO GET STARTED

- Buy a simple plain white set of Corelle plates
- Use these plates as your everyday dishware
- Use them for parties and gatherings instead of paper or other disposable plates
- Corelle plates are cost-effective so losing some plates means they can easily be replaced - use simple and long selling patterns where the collection can be constantly maintained if there is loss or breakage

EMBRACE

  1. Made of recycled glass
  2. Can last 50 years or more
  3. Many designs are simple, and elegant and have been around for decades - these collections can be maintained with new additions when there is a loss or breakage
  4. Made in USA

Noteworthy Product Attributes

These plates are stronger than porcelain but also very light. As a result, they are ideal for everyday and family use.

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

Plastic Dinnerware

AVOID

  1. Plastic plates will accumulate scratches and other damage from regular use
  2. Plastic may leach into your food when heated such as in the microwave - this is especially a problem with oily food
  3. May become warped in the dishwasher - especially in the bottom rack of dishwashers with heading elements
