The summer is coming to an end. Some people might see it as the end of entertaining for another year (pool parties, backyard barbecues…) where as others see this as the start of “entertaining season” (Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Hanukkah, New Years…). Personally I think it’s fun to entertain any time of the year – even for no reason other then to get together with family and friends and enjoy good times and great food.
I love to entertain. I don’t get to do it as much as I’d like to, but when I do, WOW! I go all out. I love to decorate, use my best dishes, create yummy recipes and do what I can to make my guests feel comfortable and fully enjoy themselves.
Serving your guests food on beautiful dishes is a wonderful thing to do. You should also consider lovely serving dishes too. After all, no one wants to see boring, stained or chipped serving dishes to accompany your favorite recipe.
I love color. If you visited my home you would see that. I enjoy colorful things. I think they are fun and they make me happy to look at them. You won’t find dark colors in my home – only light and airy colors like soft greens and blues.
I was recently asked if I’d like to review a set of casserole dishes from CW by CorningWare. CW by CorninWare is a colorful line of serving pieces by CorningWare.
I received to review the following set;
This colorful CW by CorningWare™ pieces can go straight from the oven or microwave to the table and they can use all the colors at once for an eclectic table setting, or match the pieces with other pieces you already know. When the guests leave, each piece stacks inside the other for compact storage.
- 1.9-qt. Twilight Shallow Baker
- 3-qt. Pool Baker
- 1.5-qt. Vermilion Baker
- 20-oz. Curry Baker
- Durable stoneware
- Oven, microwave and dishwasher safe
- Limited 1-year Warranty
Oh my! I love this set!
First of all the colors are perfect. Each piece is done in a soft color. They have “proper names” (Vermilion, Twilight…) but they are essentially blue, turquoise, orange/red and yellow.
I love that the pieces all fit together nicely which makes them easy to store. Each piece fits inside each other.
The pieces can be used in a variety of ways. I currently have left over bake ziti in the fridge in the 3 quart pool baker (covered in foil – there are not lids for these pieces).
Tonight I used the 1.9 shallow baker as a serving platter for hamburgers. I also used the 20 ounce baker to serve chips to go along with the burgers and other foods we had for dinner.
We were not having a party this evening but that doesn’t mean my family doesn’t appreciate a colorful setting.
The great thing about these pieces is that they are very versatile and go great from the oven to the table without having to move them from one dish to another. They are also great as serving pieces (without cooking with them). You can also use them for fancy dinners to backyard barbecues.
This set can mix and match with other pieces you might have. There are also many other pieces available in the same colors so you can create a larger set.
These pieces are a bit delicate. They can easily chip or break if you are not careful with them. I am always careful with my dishes so that is not a problem.
The set is available at many retail locations. I saw it in the store at Target and I’ve seen it online at Macys. Look for the set where ever you buy CorningWare products.
