I've been using CorningWare Bakeware, for about ten years now, since we received it as a wedding gift (and yes, it is the same set we received back then, and it is holding up quite well). I use the larger baking dishes for a lot of casseroles, and everything from shepherd's pie to rice pudding. They cook things evenly and effectively, and are very durable - not easily broken, which is great because I'm clumsy! They are a bit heavy and not the easiest things to store, but they are totally worth the little bit extra effort of making space for them in the kitchen. I love that the smaller casserole dishes have plastic, as well as the glass ones. They are perfect for storing leftovers in the fridge in the same dish they were cooked in, and then can be heated in the microwave (without the plastic lid) when we're ready finish up the leftovers. I'd definitely recommend them for your own use, or as a gift!
