Crockery - microwavable and unchippable?

Crockery - microwavable and unchippable?

Postby slmkhoo » Wed Sep 02, 2015 7:43 pm

Can anyone recommend unchippable and microwavable crockery? The plates I have are getting rather chipped round the edges as I tend towards speed rather than care. I use the microwave quite a lot, so it would need to be microwave safe, and preferably not too heavy or expensive. Any suggestions?

NTUC having the Corelle dinnerware redemption.

Corelle supposed to be break and chip resistant and microwavable.

My last set of Corelle (few years back) breaks easily compared to those from my first purchase of Corelle. Dunno if it's due to manufacturing defects :lol: just normal washing also can break.

I just bought few pieces of the all white plates from Ikea. Think only about $2.50(?) per pc but probably not microwavable as there is no print of such on the plate.

My Corelle set is 12 years old. Still good as new though washed by maids. Only 2 pieces slightly chipped like cos put too near the flame by them.

The few that I broke, will straight away broke into 2 pieces don't even have the chance of chipping off. After that I don't dare buy C anymore..hmm..or could it be that those many years ago are more durable? I don't have this problem on my first set when I was using them but unfortunately all discarded after the shiftings.

My set of Corelle bought when we first married still good. But can't find the tulip design now. Need to get other sizes. Now exchanged for NTUC using points + top up cash.

the corelle pieces bought from many years ago are more durable than the ones now. when I had maids then, I kept up the corelle sets or else they would become the 'punching bag'. it is not supposed to break or chip so easily.
