World Kitchen was a subsidiary of Corning Incorporated until April 1, 1998 - an organization renowned for its technological innovation; especially in specialty glass and glass ceramic materials. At the beginning of the 20th century, Corning invented the first heat and cold resistant glass that could be used in bakeware. That became the PYREX glass bakeware business. The 1950s saw the development of glass ceramics, and the introduction of CORNINGWARE cookware. CORELLE glass dinnerware, another unique three-layer sandwiched glass material known for its durability, was launched in 1970. A cousin of CORNINGWARE, the revolutionary see-through VISIONS cookware was introduced in early 1980s.
In April 1998, Corning Incorporated spun off its American and Asia consumer housewares business, which is World Kitchen. World Kitchen continued the innovation by introducing new products and materials, including under the names CORNINGWARE and CORELLE, while continuing to market its PYREX glass bakeware, CORNINGWARE glass ceramic, CORELLE glass dinnerware, VISIONS cookware and numerous other brands.
With a keen ability to merge technology with evolving consumer trends, World Kitchen has made each brand timeless. Today, it continues to meet the lifestyle needs of modern homes around the world.
