Answer: These are NOT completely lead & cadmium free, I just spoke with Corelle headquarters Customer Service. The dishes and mugs DO meet the standards for Calif. The totally white dishes are the purest, anything with colorful trims or designs will have a higher % of lead/cadmium.
All our products have been Lead free since the mid-2000's. Lead content has never been regulated until recently. We recommend using the items you have as decorative pieces.
DO NOT use or repair any item that is chipped, cracked, or severely scratched. Damaged items may break or shatter without warning.

In Corelle, you get a dinnerware that offers this desirable quality. Most of the dinnerware is made from melamine, a type of plastic, which is break-resistant. Corelle dinnerware is made from tempered glass that is chip and scratch-resistant. The material used in making Corelle dinnerware is microwave safe.

Corningware is the cook ware. Corelle is its line of dishes/bowls. Corelle is laminated tempered glass, so it's more resistant to shattering than regular china. But it still can shatter.
Corelle dishes are made of Vitrelle, a glass laminate of three thermally-bonded glass layers.
