Dutch Sauce Maker – SOLD

11 Sep

Pyrosil sauce maker

Pyrosil sauce maker

It’s pretty unusual to find one of these Corning Ware ‘sauce makers’ with both its lid and its handle, and even more unusual to find the Dutch version, manufactured by Pyrosil. I have no idea why, but there was a time when Pyrosil (wholly owned by Corning Ware) produced their cookware for the European market. The pieces look virtually identical, with the only real difference being the maker’s mark! But the fact that it’s Dutch and has a bit of a story to it makes it a bit more interesting don’t you think? As if the sauce maker with its lid and its handle wasn’t enough! And it’s in pretty decent nick – there are some scratches from where the handle attaches to the pot (you can use these detachable handles on other Corning Ware pieces – very clever!), and a defect in the glass lid (it’s not actually a chip, it just looks like one), but other than that it’s pretty clean.

Dimensions: Approx. 14cm tall (with lid on) x 18cm in diameter

Price: R240

Large Corning Ware Dish – SOLD

Large Corning Ware dish

These large four quart Corning Ware dishes are pretty hard to come by so I snatch them up whenever I se them, even if they’re not in absolutely mint condition. This ‘Cornflower Blue’ dish, also referred to as a ‘Dutch oven’, has a bit of wear that isn’t that noticeable in the photos – in fact even in real life you can’t really see the wear – you kind of have to feel it. The inside of the pot has become quite matte, so even though it’s clean to look at, it’s likely to stain a bit easier than the same dish which hasn’t lost its sheen. Not that it’s the end of the world – the pot is still completely functional, and as long as you look after it well, it’s sure to last you for years to come!

Dimensions: 31cm long (incl. handles) x 26.5cm wide x 17cm deep (with lid on)

Price: R340

Corning Ware Coffee Percolator – SOLD

Designed in 1969, ‘Floral Bouquet’ is probably one of my very favourite Corning Ware pattern! I just love the stylised floral pattern, and the restrained use of colour – such great design! And pair it with a nice clean 6-cup coffee percolator and you have a real winner! The larger Corning Ware coffee pots are always very impressive, but sometimes the smaller ones are a bit more practical.

A classic coffee percolator in near mint condition.

Dimensions: 22cm tall x 13.5cm in diameter (at it widest)

Price: R250

Corning Ware Brownie Dish – SOLD

I’m not really sure what the Corning Ware P-322 was intended to be used for? I see that some people refer to it as a ‘brownie pan’ and others as a ‘cake pan’, so presumably its creator had dessert in mind when he or she came up with this shape! I suppose you can use it for anything really – I can’t, for example, see why you couldn’t do a lasagne or a potato bake in this dish? Then again I’m pretty useless in the kitchen so you probably shouldn’t be listening to me on this one!

NB: This dish has never been used! It came in its original box – sadly its condition was too poor to keep, but the dish itself is immaculate!

Dimensions: 25cm long x 23cm wide x 6.5cm deep

Price: R220

Corning Ware Teapot – SOLD

Two Corning Ware teapots in one week! This little guy’s in slightly better nick than the teapot that we featured on Tuesday – it doesn’t have the scratches around the rim – but I have to say, I think I prefer the Wildflower pattern, although there’s something to be said for the ’70s kitsch of this Corning Ware ‘Spice of Life’ pattern (‘Spice of Life’ was first introduced in 1972) – it reminds me of the some of the kitchenware that was around when I was a kid, and of course it’s also got that great ’60s shape!

A very neat little teapot that can also double as a gas kettle when the lights go out.

Dimensions: 13cm tall  x 13cm in diameter

Price: R160

Corning Ware 6-cup teapot

I love these little Corning Ware teapots – they have such a great shape! And how sweet is the ‘Wildflower‘ pattern? The pattern dates to the late ’70s, but this particular shape of Corning Ware teapot (the six-cup P-104) was first introduced in 1960, so the teapot has much more of a ’60s than a ’70s feel. There’s some wear to the rim of the teapot, where the metal clasps secure the lid to the teapot, but otherwise it’s a nice clean piece.

Dimensions: 13cm tall  x 13cm in diameter
