What Is Corelle Dinnerware?

Corelle appeared on the market in the early 1970s as the first glass dinnerware to be chip and break resistant. It was developed by the research and development team at Corning Glass Works. Corelle dinnerware is made by a hub lamination process that bonds three layers of glass. The process creates a lightweight and durable product with unique enamel decorating that is a part of the glass.
