Corningware oven-to-tableware products are convenient for cooking, baking, and serving in the same dish. The brand now offers products made from ceramic stoneware for microwave use. Corningware stoneware is dishwasher-, freezer-, and oven-safe. It won't absorb food odors, and it's nonreactive to acidic foods. Three of Corningware's versatile bakeware lines include French White, a popular pick for bridal registries; SimplyLite, a lightweight option; and etch, bakeware designed with artisan craftsmanship. The Colours Collection by Corningware has ribbed edges and offers vibrant casserole dishes, pie dishes, and other serveware in colors ranging from red to cobalt blue. StoveTop Collection pieces are traditional-style serving dishes featuring images of blue cornflowers, simple lines, and delicate florals.
