    I am really pissed right now.

    A while back, by accident I dropped and broke a 6 oz Corelle bowl. I know this was an oven/heat proof bowl. I am looking to replace it with simple, white round bowl.

    So far Amazon shows this funny shape (well, my Uncle says it is funny shape, he is old-school).

    Amazon.com | Teocera Porcelain Small Bowls, Dessert Bowls Set - 6 Ounce for Ice Cream, Small Side Dishes, Set of 6, White: Dessert Bowls

    Two questions
    1. What do you call a material that is Oven/Heat proof. I don't mean microwave-proof (we avoid microwaves like the plague!)
    2. Where can I get 6 oz, simple, white round bowl.

    My uncle needs to control serving size. Right now he ate in a 15 oz bowl which was filled to slightly more than 6 oz and he is getting chest pains.

    Chest pains can be correlated to the food intake, keeping everything constant (i.e. he eats healthy, and is on recumbant 2 to 3 hrs a day).

    I'm pissed and frustrated. I wanted Christmas Day to end on a happy note. :disappointed:


    Update: He said that he bought the whole set of Corelle bowls, plates, etc from one of them Indian stores decades ago for $9.

    Please please please help. I am super-upset!!!!!

    Get Corelle bowls from Walmart. They come in pieces and you do not have to buy the whole set. They have a deep-plate kind of too, that I love. SD, do not get upset on christmas night. It is a easy fix. Things like this happen. Merry Christmas!

    The material of corelle is called vitrelle- reinforced glass.

    Ok, I tried not to get upset.

    I went to the link and that bowl has the Butterfly Gold decoration (but was smaller than the bowl in the article).


    Walmart!

    Alas they do pick-up and the closest Walmart is in the next state.


    This is helpful start. I thank you both :biggrin:

    Corelle outlet stores are amazing. I’ve been to two of theirs and love those stores. Look up online to see if there are any near you.

    I’ve bought from corelle online. Their shipping is reliable. Nothing came broken so far. They also have sales online.

    Hello @Laks09 I 'll check Corelle outlet stores.

    And wouldn't you know ---- it turns out we have 2 6-oz bowls remaining. Hope we can adjust the dish usage so my Uncle can eat in these bowls.

    Phew!!!!!

    At least now we know where to get more Corelle bowls!
