Users have praised CorningWare SimplyLite typically giving it 4 1/2 out of 5 stars. Here's a few comments:
"Not only is the new corning ware apealing to the eye it is versatile. It blends in to whatever dish pattern or table cloth you are using. I bought a set for my Mom who is 85 yrs old. The new corning ware is much lighter in weight and makes it easier for her to handle and carry the dish. At first glance it does not look like this product will be as sturdy as the older version but after dropping it (accidently) and having it ding into other pots and pans I was happy to see it is stronger than it looks. So far nothing has left a staining mark ; I also like the extending edges that blend well with the design and make it easier to keep a handle on a filled dish. I gave this 5 stars because the product is appealing visually; it is sturdy; handles well and washes beautifully ; looks great in the fridge and the price is very reasonable."
"Functional, good-looking., LIGHT, and elegant enough to serve company. Stacks well and the see-through plastic lid is a bonus. It's nice to see what's in a container when its in the fridge."
"When I saw first saw the "SimplyLite" CorningWare line in a department store, I picked up a piece to look at it. After feeling the lightness of the dish, I decided CorningWare had lost it's good reputation with me; this stuff must be plastic! Why would anyone want to buy this? But, a few weeks later,needing a baking dish with a good tight lid on it for refrigerating foods and leftovers that tend to smell up the refrigerator, I decided to give it a try. WOW! Have I been pleasantly surprised and pleased with everything about this dish. Excellent size and shape, very versatile, and cleans up effortlessly. As for the difficulty of using the tightly fitting lid that some users mentioned, some of us want it tight for the very reason that we do not want the tuna casserole or turkey and dressing smells mingling with other items in the refrigerator. It's tight but not impossible or even all that difficult to remove if you place your dish on the counter to work with it. The dish looks nice on the table, and it's so light that it's easy to handle when full. Great invention, CorningWare. I highly recommend the new SimplyLite line of Corningware; I'm now a believer."
