#TopPic: Lead-Free Dish Set, “Service for Four” for under $43!

Creating a lead-free kitchen does NOT have to be expensive! In fact, many of the best lead-free choices out there are also the least expensive options in their product categories.

As most of my followers know, my favorite reliably lead-free dishes are any plain white Corelle sets (sets with no colorful decorative elements).

You can also buy a similar lead-free set piece-by-piece at Ikea for even less (it is Ikea’s directly branded white glass dinnerware and I have seen the individual pieces online for as little as 79 cents each!)

The best thing about these Corelle pieces (besides the fact that they are reliably and consistently lead-free) is that they *usually* bounce when thrown! [Yes, as a mother of disabled children I know this from real on-the-ground experience!]

Note: They have a bad rap for shattering under extreme conditions (so when the do break you will have a big clean up job on your hands) but in my experience the positives far outweigh the negatives (and really any ceramic or glass dish will create a splinter concern when it breaks.)

So here’s some of what is available on Amazon* today.  Prices listed are as of October 4, 2018, so may change. [Reminder the Corelle mugs are made of a different material and are not always lead-free, so only buy sets without mugs OR you may just consider tossing the mugs if you buy a set with mugs and want to make sure to have 100% lead-free dinnerware!]

Lead Free: Corelle “Winter Frost White” Service For Four: $42.75

This set comes with four bowls, four dinner plates and four salad plates, so a total of 12 pieces (and free shipping with Amazon prime), which works out to about $3.56 per piece. I have also seen these sets sell for less than $40.00 at K-mart and Target and similar big-box stores.

This is a GREAT starter gift for a new family or a kid going off to college, or even a grandparent who is downsizing!

Here’s a “Winter Frost White” Service for Six, coming in at $62.72 with free shipping on Amazon prime. This has six of each of the three pieces, so the per-piece price works out to about $3,48 each.

And finally – here’s a 38 piece Corelle Winter Frost White service for 12 that includes 2 serving platters and lids as well… for just $199.98!

If you have a little extra to spend and wants something reliably lead free but a little more decorative I am personally a big fan of the Corelle Bella Faenza design:

As always, thank you for reading and for sharing.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

        Ok thanks 🙂

        I got the Winter Frost White ones because I couldn’t easily find the Bella Faenza in Australia.

        There is some writting at the bottom with the name of the brand etc. Even that doesn’t contain lead/cadmium?

          Yes, that’s correct!

    Are all the plain white Corelle plates lead free? I just bought a set of the “Classic” in winter white because it was on sale. Now I am not sure if I should return them.

    Hi Tamara,
    Today is my first day on your site; I’m so grateful for you! Thank you for all of your hard work and research and then sharing with us!!

    I have some different size white Corelle bowls that say “Corelle Vitrelle” on them. They are deeper bowls, but not wide diameter. If I knew how to send a picture, I would. I’m wondering if you’ve seen other Corelle Vitrelle plates/dishes and tested them? Thank you so much!!!!
