cooked my first nasi lemak curry chicken
On top of my new single life #wishlist was to be able to cook again in a fully equipped kitchen which Arpita my dear Singaporean friend would say "every auntie's dream come true". You see, once you get married like her, you transformed into an "auntie" automatically. Every pot, every pan, every kitchen thingamajig becomes the very thing that makes your heart jump. Even more so when they come in complete sets to wow your unsuspecting guests during dinner.
P.S: If you're not married and is obsessed with kitchen stuffs, then you are a "pre-mature auntie-culation".
So when World Kitchen (American kitchenware) contacted me to have me review their products, I said "OH YES" like an auntie in heat. I know Corelle's line of products, my ex-colleague Zaninah gushes over Corelle's dinnerware like a school girl. Her favourite was to stalk Corelle & Corningware's sales to get collections inspired by floral motifs, which World Kitchen says it's a Malaysian favourite. I think she would be ecstatic to know that Corelle's celebrating it's 45th birthday now and a new floral motif collection called Rosabelle was introduced.
The Rosabelle collection, available in both dinnerware and cookware is adorned with beautiful soft Apricot Candy roses in pink petals and green leaves. The dinnerware is light-weight, chip-resistant, stain-free, durable, easy to clean and quaint. The same goes to the cookware, which is my absolute favourite, a classic Corningware casserole dish that's microwave, oven, stove and dishwasher safe.
It's perfect for the single me, I can cook and serve in it. From the stove to the table to the fridge and the next day? out from the fridge onto the stove again with ease. Both dinnerware and cookware cleans easily much to my surprise! It's thanks to the durable and yet lightweight material Vitrelle® a remarkable three-layer sandwich of thermally laminated glass. Be it the conventional, convection or microwave ovens, you can pop it in to bake, cook, heat your asian or western creations away.

As messy as my cooking (no pics will be shown to protect the sanity of readers), I find cleaning up after - washing the dinnerware - super easy! Like wiping a baby's butt. It was effortless, another brownie point from this single girl who would rather have everything made easy. Comparing them to my former Ikea plates, I give Corelle's dinnerware a A+ in my books.
The Corelle Rosabelle 16-piece set is priced at RM729 and the Corningware Rosabelle 6-piece Casserole Set (1L, 1.5L & 3L) is priced at RM629. Both are available in leading departmental stores such as AEON, Parkson, Isetan and Metrojaya. For more information and the advantages of using Corelle and Corningware products click here. They sometimes do giveaways and recipe sharing at their facebook page!.
