Growing up, my parents used Corelle dishes and now with my family I have used Corelle dishes for 28 years. I just recently replaced my dishes with a new style and print from Corelle. I never had a problem with my old dishes and the design on them never faded. My son is using them now at college. The only reason I got the new dishes was that during family reunions, I needed more dishes. I purchased and love the Corelle square cherry blossom set. I also purchased the Corelle square pure white set to mix with the cherry blossom set. The dinner plates are large and the dessert plates are sometimes used as dinner plates and both sets are so elegant I can use them for fancy dinners. Corelle dishes are so durable, elegant and dependable.
