My first Corelle bowl was the 1 QT as here, but it is a duller white with a blue rim. I bought it used in a thrift shop, and I'm dead certain the bowl is more than 20 years old. I remember seeing that style in commercials, from over 20 years prior. It's my favorite bowl. I've used it often, dropped it, washed it in the dishwasher, for about three years. It never broke or chipped. Fits well in the dishwasher. Very delicate looking, light but strong. Holds heat well. Wanted more. These new ones from Walmart which I just got last week, are dazzling white, newly-fallen-glistening-snow. Tapered gradually, about 5.5" at the bottom (flat; add .5" for the curve); about 2" high for the 1 QT, 3" high (maybe a tad more) for the 2QT, tapering gracefully outward from base to lip. So you could put maybe 12 servings' worth of food, in all three. Think of two Chunky soup cans' worth per 1 QT, and four cans' worth for the 2 QT. Nothing microwaves better. The outward- tapered design makes it easy to use in the microwave, because you can 'top' a bowl with another (inverted) bowl, which allows enough of a gap without the mess that paper or plastic toppings produce. Bowls warm slightly, but do not become hot, of themselves. I just love this style. Instructions don't say you can use a Corelle bowl in the oven, and I've never tried that. I'm sure you can't use it on stovetops. Or shouldn't. Think of fine china, how you'd handle that, and you probably should treat these bowls the same way. They sure 'ping' like fine china. But are sturdy. Amazing stuff.
