Especially for those new here I also wanted to take a moment to remind folks of the resources (related to dishes / dish testing / Lead-free dishes) on this website. Here are some of those resources:
- The short video showing how to efficiently search the 3,500+ posts and pages on this website
- The Index for looking up dishes by brand here on the site (with test results for each linked example posted)
- The dishes overview article discussing many of the popular brands and their track records – from a toxicant perspective
- The article discussing brands I recommend avoiding (including Crate & Barrel, Pottery Barn, Williams Sonoma, Sur La Table and others)
- The article discussing why it is a problem if modern dishes test positive for toxicants (given they have likely passed current leach-testing standards)

Would like to know of some totally lead free glasses and mugs. Both about 11 oz.
FYI I had glass Duralex plates and one day, after I pulled one out and placed a pancake on it for my son, the plate exploded into a thousand pieces all over the dining room. It was good that he had not come to the table yet as the damage would have been serious. I got rid of them immediately. I now have the Corelle white that you recommended and so far so good.
I’m sorry to hear that happened. We use Duralex for hot things all the time with no issues. I think that it is an issue with sudden temperature change and any glassware – potentially. My grandmother used to always warm the plates in the oven before putting food on them – perhaps that’s a good practice in general.
I just looked at Amazon reviews and found that other people also experienced their Duralex plates exploding during normal use (one lady was making an avocado sandwich and ended up with cuts all over). This is a major design defect that is not anticipated by the average consumer. I have used glass from various companies my whole life and had never experienced the violent explosion that I did from a Duralex plate. I have Duralex mugs and bowls and so far those have not been an issue but their plates are dangerous.
Hi – I have heard stories but never experienced any issues myself and have used their products for more than a decade.

Have you checked the new HFCoors white dinnerware? Made by same company I believe. I got rid of Corelle because they didn’t want to tell me what country their raw materials in their dinnerware is from. I noticed small chips in my Correlle and got worried as they were so minute I don’t know when they got there so I wanted to know where the ingredients is from and if I needed to rid of them. They were the winter frost white Correll. I bought HFCoors white to replace, but want to see your testing before I get rid of these too.

FYI: I am hearing sometimes you don’t get the name brand from Amazon rather a ‘knock off’ as opposed to going to the manufacturer’s site.
