Corning Pyroceram*r Cookware

The first reference book to provide a detailed account of the Pyroceram(R) cookware, developed at Corning by Donald Stookey and marketed in 1958. This special Pyroceram(R) material was first used on military missile nose cones, and because of its durability, it was felt to be a great medium for the kitchen, too. Easily taken from the freezer, used in the oven, microwave, or on the range, it was beautiful enough to be served at the table. After a meal, it went straight to the dishwasher. The cookware saved many steps for the consumer. 60 plus patterns are listed and shown in over 400 colour photographs. Reprints of catalogues, brochures, and historical material, and a detailed bibliography provide much additional information. All information was carefully compiled from original catalogues and reprints, company brochures, trade journals, company advertising, auction lists, eBay, and the shared extensive experience of many dedicated dealers and collectors. An index gives easy access to material.

This is a good source of CorningWare of two books that I know about. Interesting and well illustrated with nice photographs. The only thing that keeps it from being a five star is some frustration with contradicting info and no way of knowing which is correct.

I just received this book and read the whole thing in one sitting. It is just what I was looking for - clear pictures, product numbers and measurements in inches including the bottoms and the tops. I cannot say enough about this book. If you are just starting to collect and want to learn the history and dates of various patterns, this is the book for you.

Didn't realize there were so many different styles. Very informative and I would definitely recommend it to others who may be collection the cookware.

Good intentions`. But did not live up to the way I thought the description was for the book. More thorough reading by me would of possibly helped.

;love this book! So happy to finally have it
