I agree about not liking the patterns Corelle has, but do love how durable the dishes are.

Haven't found any that are as durable. I agree about the patterns though. Whew...someone should give them a heads up, some of those patterns are U-G-L-Y! LOL I did finally, after years of looking find a pattern I liked and bought 2 sets and 4 extra plates. So I have 12 plates and 8 of everything else. I see they don't even have my pattern anymore. Did you try looking on their website or a outlet store?

I had Pfalscraft (sp?) hated them. They chipped in the dishwasher. I didn't have a plate that wasn't chipped. And they were so thick and took up so much room on the shelf. I've got 12 plates that take up about 2 inches now compaired to 8 that were about 6 inches. I love my Corelle.

I haven't found anything better either. I didn't like their patterns either and after a lot of searching I finally gave up and bought their plain white ones.

The plain white ones work for me. I love the new Corelle Light or whatever it's called serving dishes.

I have the plain white ones too. I have bought them all open stock so I have a variety of pieces. I have the divided plates for the boys. I have the edged white salad/dessert plates. I have the various bowls in many sizes. They are virtually indestructable. I did break a plate once though. Just tonight I dropped a bowl onto my tile floor and it just bounced to a rest.

I also have a small variety of seasonal salad plates for holidays. My best friend bought me a full set of Christmas dessert plates. She bought them from Replacements. They add a festive touch without a whole other set of dishes. I love them.

I don't like the patterns either. We still have the set we got for our wedding 16 yrs ago. I want to replace it but I'm not going to the expense until they get better patterns or even some colored solids in brighter colors.

Thanks, I think we are going to go with the round white with black set.
