This set was one my mom had, and when she moved out, she took hers with her. I really missed it, as I cook alot and these dishes work for so many things. I am happy with my purchase and I know you will be happy with this too!

If you can find the old made in USA versions, buy them. Skip the Chinese stuff. It's markedly inferior.
The Chinese versions can be identified by an exposed ridge of porcelain on the bottom and a fluted or radial pattern on the lid. The USA versions have smooth bottoms and completely clear lids.
The Chinese versions have a shallower angle on the top lip so the lid is much more likely to go sliding off. Do not hold the bottom with your fingers while your thumb is on the lid. You will have an accident.
The lids fit poorly in general. The white porcelain/ceramic will show black scratches if you scrape the bottom with a metal spoon. The American made ones do not have that problem.
Unfortunately when I added to my collection I thought I was getting the same as what I already had.
Bottom line: I will be very careful about buying CorningWare products in the future. P.S. Funny how the review spell checker flags CorningWare as a misspelled word.

used to be made in the usa now in china.!

Comments about CorningWare 12-Piece French White Set:

These products are not the quality they once were when made in the usa. I have a houseful of corning ware and the last experience with the rep. was rude when I asked for a replace placement on a cracked dish they sent me a box of broken pieces of another dish! When I called they said they would re-send and never to call them again!

Cracked after just a few uses

By KarenNYC

from New York

Comments about CorningWare 12-Piece French White Set:

I bought this from the store in Lancaster. It looked nice, but my first thought was how heavy it was. Unfortunately, heavy doesn't equal strong. After only a few uses, it cracked. I had cooked something in the oven, put the empty baking pan aside for a few minutes, then put it in the sink and left it for awhile. Nothing else was in the sink. When I went to wash it, I noticed a large crack running up along the side and I had to throw it out. I am surprised at the poor quality.

Also, it is very difficult to clean because of the design. The grooves trap the stains and you really need to scour to get them out.

This item was not cheap and definitely not worth what we paid for it.

        I ordered this for my mom for a Christmas present. She has already used them and I haven't heard any complaints. I thought the price was really good also.

        Made in China

        By SarahWest

        from USA

        Comments about CorningWare 12-Piece French White Set:

        I had gotten this as a gift for my wedding. I was very excited, as we did need something like it. However, I truly wish it was made in USA. Currently with a baby, I do not feel at all comfortable, with any product made in China. Very disappointed!

        beware of glass tops not fitting

        By disatisfied

        from Alaska

        Comments about CorningWare 12-Piece French White Set:

        Large oval covered dish in the 12 pc gift set does not fit. Called customer ser and was told it was normal to let steam out and to keep lid from rattling, Give me a break what kind of BS excuse is that. The lid will not stay on the dish. Since It cost too much to return ship I guess I'm stuck with it. Won't deal with this company again. Made some purchases on Amazon but when I found out this company was the supplier I canceled the order. I will post negative comment on Amazon as well.
