When World Kitchens bought the license from Corning, they decided to halt production of a line of cookware that would take anything and last forever, and dupe customers, especially brides, into thinking the stoneware "French White" was the same thing as the wonderful French White pyroceramic cookware previously available. Stoneware is pottery, like a flowerpot. It's sturdy, but if dropped it will shatter, and if the edge is knocked with a spoon it is likely to chip. Repeated trips to the freezer from the over will eventually cause the glaze to craze.
The pattern is attractive and can be used with any decor, but this stuff is not, repeat, really not, what people mean when they say "Corningware." Which, btw, was much lighter weight than stoneware.
Le Creuset can do most of the above mentioned, but it being metal you cannot use it in the microwave. And it's really heavy. Stoneware cannot go on top of the stove, and repeated trips from the freezer to the oven will eventually cause it to craze and crack. And being stoneware, it will also chip, and break if dropped, etc. Pyrex glassware cannot go on the gas stove although you can take it from the freezer to the oven, and also microwave it.
The only product which could do anything was pyroceramic, and World Kitchens has chosen to remove it from the market because it is "too good.Read more ›
I am handicapped and I can still use them without difficulty.
The metal holders make it easier to remove from the oven and the covers work well for both certain cooking functions and for storage. I supplement this set with another one and it allows me to bake just about whatever I want easily.
