You can order replacement lids for your corning-ware, Pyrex storage and baking dishes
I was at my Father-in-Laws house 2 years ago for a visit. I did a lot of cooking and freezing of different meals for his freezer and I stumbled across some lids that he had for a set of corning-ware bake-ware that I have never seen before.
I have only ever seen the glass lids with the handle (knob) on top. He had those, but he also had flat plastic lids that fit the same bake-ware dish for easier refrigerator storage. WOW!
I grew up with mom and Gram cooking in the CorningWare with the blue cornflowers on the side, but we only had the glass lids. Who knew (not me apparently) that there are other lids for those things.
When I got home I spent time on the computer looking and looking. I found some on Ebay, but then I found a website called World Kitchen for CorningWare, Pyrex and Corelle, but I could only find a few lids on their website, so I called and they helped me find replacement lids for most of the containers that I had. Look for the number under one of the handles or on the bottom of your CorningWare. Those are the numbers you need to match up the right size lid. I went over mine in pencil so you can see it better.
Fast forward 2 years… I have now replaced all my plastic storage containers with glass and I have found plastic lids for most of them. World Kitchen now has about 5+ pages of replacement lids. YIPPEE! I still had to call to cross reference a few numbers, and they were more than happy to help me. If you are interested in finding the plastic lids for some of the dishes you have, go to their website, click on “bakeware” and then “covers & lids” and that will take to the replacement lid section. If you can’t find what you are looking for, just call them.
I now have lids for my little 7 oz ramekins and an oval CorningWare baking dish I have had for 25 years. the best part about all this is that I can bake in these dishes using the glass lids and then store them in the refrigerator using the flat plastic lids and still have space to stack something else on top of it. When I used the glass lid in the refrigerator I it took up a whole shelf and I couldn’t stack anything on top…. now I can.
Am I the only one that didn’t know about the plastic lids that fit the CorningWare?
