COOKING WITH HERBS AND SPICES IS AN ART AND AN ACT AS UNIVERSAL AND ALMOST AS ANCIENT AS FIRE. CRAIG CLAIBORNE

{HISTORY}

A baking staple in kitchens around the world, Corning Glass Works has made heating food in the oven easy since 1915. They first started with Pyrex oven-proof glass dishes in the early 1900s eventually graduating to their beloved Corning Ware brand in the 1950s when they debuted their popular blue cornflower pattern.

Available in a wide variety of shapes and sizes these blue and white bakeware dishes became indispensable for home cooks. Fulfilling three purposes in one dish - baking, storing, and serving, Corning Ware made a big impact on the midcentury kitchen scene. With their easy stacking abilities, variety of shapes and sizes, multi-function design and affordable price range, they instantly became treasured kitchen helpers.

In 1972, Corning Ware introduced the Spice of Life pattern, also known as French Spice, which was in production until the late 1980s. This pattern was a slightly improved version of the Cornflower pattern, with larger glass knobs on the lid and straighter, more square-like bodies with wider handles. Just like the Cornflower series, Spice of Life was an instant favorite becoming the second most popular pattern to collect. 

This 5-quart casserole also known as a dutch oven, was made between 1985-1999 and features the wider lid knob and handle style for easy transport from oven to table.
