Nostalgia alert! You can buy blue-and-white CorningWare again

Chances are, your grandmother’s casserole dishes had that classic blue-and-white cornflower design and seeing it again brings back some warm (and delicious!) memories.

Now, you can have your own set — without having to get in a bidding war on eBay.


CorningWare is celebrating its 60th anniversary by bringing back the nostalgic design called “Cornflower Blue,” which was an icon of the late 1950s through the 1980s. It’s now available again in everything from the classic casserole dishes to ramekins, serveware and even mixing bowls.

In addition to CorningWare dishes, the pattern was also released on Corelle, Pyrex and Chicago Cutlery items, meaning your dinnerware, glass measuring cups and even knives can sport the sweet design.

Below, see some of our favorites from the anniversary collection:
