IIRC, Corelle is tempered glass and should not be used with serrated knives, which can damage the surface and leave them prone to shattering dramatically...

Don't you wish. Corelle never "breaks" but if you manage to drop it so a stress line hits something hard, the damned stuff explodes like a grenade. I've only done that once in all the years (30 odd?) I'd eaten off it and that was one bowl dropped on a vinyl-over-wood fairly gentle floor.
But it went off like a bomb.

I don't use the Corelle mugs, they were never "muggy" enough for me, so over the years I've lost a few mainly novelty mugs of different kinds, heavy porcelain or whitewear. But I've also got a couple of double-walled stainless steel mugs, and I love the way they leave no sweat rings and keep a cold drink COLD.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
