We need new dishes. I got this beautiful Dansk stoneware set for our wedding, absolutely love it. Problem is it has NOT held up. We had 13 settings. I now have 1 bowl, 6 small plates, and most of the large ones (but they are so big we rarely use them). Soooo...with little kids and my husband around I've decided to get some Corelle. Great sale on cooking.com, btw. At any rate, I'm deciding between the cheaper regular sets or the ultra. The ultra is 70% thicker and has a 5 year warranty vs 3 year (big seller here LOL). So I'm wondering how much bigger they really are? I like that the regular ones stack up nice and take up barely any space in a cabinet, but they are very thin and kind of "cheap" to me (though really, I think that is bc I am used to my honking big stoneware dishes LOL). Anyone have any comparisons/personal reviews they can give to help me decide???

we have some regular corelle and I like it because it's so thin. you can stack a lot of plates in just a little place (we're living in 700sqft over here so space is at a premium). We inherited them, so I'm not sure how old they are, but they're at LEAST 5 years old and have held up very well. My mom has some that are around 20 years old, and the colors have just now started to fade slightly, but they aren't chipped or scratched or anything. they hold up really well!

We have 25 year old regular Corelle and I love it.<br><br>
We just have the white. We got it when we got married.<br><br>
I like that it is light weight and durable.<br><br>
Over the years, very few pieces have broken.

I didn't know there was even warranty <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I have a new set I bought about 6 years ago and then I have hand me down corelle that is at least 20 years old, not sure. The stuff from 6 years ago hasn't faded in the least. It's the blue flower pattern on the edge, really nice. The hand me down stuff is all white and some of the plates are scratched on the bottoms but that's it.<br><br>
My only complaint with Corelle is that when they do break, they BREAK. It's insane the way they shatter. Sort of scary. But they rarely do that (I think I've broken two bowls over the years - and both were me, not the kids). Other than that I really like them. Especially how slim they are.

I love Corelle. I have the French White, but I do like the look of the chunkier stoneware style that's availavle now.

OK cool thanks....I just went ahead and ordered the regular ones, they were cheaper anyway LOL!!!! I think the space-saving will be well worth it...we're military and move often so you never really know what your kitchen will be like! It will be so nice to have dishes that won't keep breaking!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">
