Corelle is a brand of glassware and dishware. It is made of Vitrelle, a tempered glass product consisting of two types of glass laminated into three layers. It was introduced by Corning Glass Works in 1970, but is now manufactured and sold by World Kitchen. A typical Corelle dinner plate measures 26 centimetres in diameter and weighs 355 grams.
Corelle has come in hundreds of different patterns over the years since it was first introduced, but most of these were retired when the brand was purchased by World Kitchen; many of the patterns were also used in CorningWare cookware. Retired patterns are still widely available.
