Corelle Vitrelle Plain White Bowl, Purchased New in 2017: Lead Free

These are the bowls I bought for my family last year. I got both the large and small size and I love them – for everything. These are the things I love about them: super practical, high sides, less spilling, good for storing stuff in the fridge, break resistant and yes – LEAD FREE (most important feature!)

The plain white Corelle dishes are NOT ceramic. They are white glass. They are not glazed and do not have any kind of surface finish other than the glass. They are a consistent white glass material throughout.

These are my TOP PICK for Lead-free dishes in my home (in anyone’s home.) Frankly I would buy a dozen more of each piece from this set today if I had the extra money – both to have back ups for when we have company and to fill in the gaps in the kitchen when pieces eventually break (which they do with four boys in the house!)

Here are Amazon affiliate* links to the exact dishes I have in my home and use every day (including this bowl):

Folks have asked me to do a more comprehensive post about the materials in the glass so here that is for all of you. Some people seem to have a hard time believing how non-toxic these actually are (compared to other options!)

Below are the exact test results for two areas of one of these bowls: the inside food surface and the outside area including the logo (which is grayish black in color.) Each set of readings is from a full minute test.Corelle Vitrelle Plain White Bowl, Purchased New in 2017: Lead Free

    Hi Tamara, do you still recommend Corelle dinnerware? I need some affordable dinnerware, 4 pieces of plates (small and large) and 4 bowls and 4 cups for tea and coffee. Or if you recommend anything else maybe from Ikea? Thank you very much

    Does the Corelle Vitrelle plain white bowl have aluminum in it? Thanks!

      Hi Connie,

      I have not tested for the presence of Aluminum. The GUI in Consumer Goods mode on the instrument I use does not read aluminum unfortunately. I can try testing it in Metals mode and let you know what I come up with. Keep an eye on the blog. I will add it to my (very long) “to do list”!

      Tamara
