Another Great Discovery!

Do you have any of these?


I think I must have gotten some of these when I got married  nearly 49 years ago!  But this particular one I brought home when my mother-in-love died and it's my favorite size.  Every other day or so I cut up two or three apples throw in some Splenda and cinnamon, spritz on a little spray margerine (I know, I know, but it's zero calories!), put the lid on and microwave it for 6 minutes.  It's a "recipe" I got in Weight Watchers years ago and still continue to use because I love it.  Of course, it's much better if you use real sugar and real butter but when you're counting calories....

Anyway, over time it has stained badly.  I don't know if it's the apple peelings or the cinnamon but it was sure ugly.  This morning I got the brilliant idea to try this:

And you know what?  It came clean, bright and shiny again in just a jiffy!  Just thought you might want to know.  :)

I still have one of those left from a set we received at our wedding a long, long time ago. It's so crazy that it is considered vintage! LOL I just started using those Mr. Clean erasers and love them. Your recipe sounds yummy!

I just bought some items with the cornflower blue pattern for my daughter for Christmas last year. She loves the vintage pattern and I have a pie plate that I got for a wedding gift that she has always loved. I found the pie plate on e bay and it looked like it had never been used.

I have lots of corning ware still and I love it.

Needled Mom said...

Seriously? I never thought of using that on mine. I use them on everything else. Thanks for the idea.

Adrienne said...

Thanks for the tip. I have several of those and I use them all the time. I got my first one with Gold Bond Stamps (remember trading stamps?) before I was married. Some were wedding gifts and I've 'inherited' a couple that are favorites. I can't bear to part with them. There's nothing that does the job better than these!

I had some of those but no longer. But my ceramic ramekins have a few stains and until your suggestion I never would have thought to try the magic eraser. Brilliant! :)

Elizabeth said...

I have my mom's set, only with the Spice of Life instead of the Cornflowers. A couple of mine are stained too. Thanks for the tip, I'll try it! And thanks for the recipe, I'll try it too!

I love my old Corningware! And yes, the magic erasers work wonders on the stains. I've tried that recipe countless times and it's really good!

Oh, I just saw that same small Corningware dish on the garage shelf along with some things I was sorting out. I am going to get it back in the kitchen, clean it up and make some apples! Mine was also a wedding gift almost 49 years ago.....in October. When is your anniversary?

God bless......

Thanks Marlene. I have several pieces of the Blue CornFlower. I picked them up junkin. For awhile, I was picking up every piece I found, but I have donated some back. The reason I love them, is because they remind me of my daddy, who left this earth when I was 12. He gave me a set of toy dishes when I was little, and they had the same design on them. I played and played with them. Sadly,I had to pass them to my younger sisters and they are history. Oh, how I would love to find another set, but since I haven't, I 'play' (cook) in the real ones, and each time I look at that Blue Cornflower, it makes me smile because I think of dad.

I`m a huge fan of old Corning. Wish I had room for more. This is some of the best cookware made. I use Barkeepers Friend to clean my Corning and Pyrex. It`s gentle and gets rid of stains fast.

I still have the three casseroles and "frying" pan I received as wedding gifts 44 years ago. I use them often. I love magic erasers and use them to clean the bottom of my iron.

Rose Marie Andreozzi said...

I have some of the older corning as well. Still use them, still love them! Better than using plastic in the micro!

I love my corning. I have my mom pick it up for me at garage sales. Next to fabric dishes are my favorite thing to collect.

sandra said...

I still have two Corning dishes from when I got married 48 years ago and I still love them . Blessings Sandra

Mr. Clean erasers does a great job cleaning the sole plate of your iron as well.
And they do a great job cleaning my Le Creuset pots as well
