CorningWare FAQs

Grey metal marks can be commonly found on all glass products. These marks is caused by friction between glass and metal such as using metal utensils, silverware, exposed metal on dishwasher racks or stainless steel sinks. Metal utensils should not be used with CORNINGWARE. Instead use wooden, nylon or plastic utensils.

Tips: To loosen food, allow cookware to soak and use only plastic or nylon cleaning pads with non-abrasive cleansers such as CORNINGWARE Cleaner & Conditioner. A soft sponge with a non-abrasive cleanser may also remove the grey marks on your CORNINGWARE .

All CORNINGWARE cookware can be used in conventional, convection, toaster and microwave ovens; gas and electric stovetop; in the refrigerator, freezer and dishwasher. For use in freezer, please use with caution as liquid expansion may cause possible pressure for glass to break.
