Hi Joyce

Thanks for that.

Is Corelle similar to Melaware? Plastic (sort of) and lightweight.

We don't mind melaware since it is very convenient for the van, but Mrs Zeb does get a bit fidgety when the mugs get badly teastained.

The dsigns are good too. http://www.corelle.com/

Autosleeper crockery

Hi Zebedee

Corelle is made by Corning of USA and it is a fine corning ware product. ie it is made of glass/ceramic but is much silkier to the touch than pyrex and better than the french opal glassware.

see www.corelle.org

a YouTube explanation of manufacture.

Yes there are a lot of patterns now-a-days. We have a plain white fluted design - rather like the plates my grandmother had!

We have added two modern french glassware dishes to our stock - the japanese style square ones [to keep our portions small] but they do not match the finish on the Corelle and weigh more too.

Thanks Joyce.

We were wondering what to give the van as a Christmas present!

Personal Aire
After admiring Zebedees plate store and determined on emulating his design, I was much saddened to discover that the cupboard design in my van meant that they were not deep enough to take large 10" plates at the bottom. Indeed first measurements indicated they would not lay flat at the wider top either, however, they just do. So I am now about to fabricate an inferior, tapered, upside-down store to replace a rather horrid plastic moulded cup and vertical plate holder that we have. Has anyone else come up with alternative ideas for getting the maximum storage into the wider-at-the-top cupboards? https://www.motorhomefacts.com/module...s/question.gif
