Our 20 yo Corelle cups are made of the same material as the plates and bowls. We don't use them for coffee, but they are great for other beverages, way better than plastic, and have been put into use for wine, beer, juice, water, etc. I think we only carry a couple of them.

You must know my dishwashing skills quite well, Alf. More than a couple times, the "baby" has been thrown out with the bath water.

May I add a timer and food thermometer? And, buy the same quality you would use at home or you'll be constantly irritated. I've got measuring cups and spoons that no longer indicate what size they are. Those are about to be replaced.
I have a plan to fill a container under the bed with all the stuff that we don't use. That way I don't have to get into an argument about whether we need it or not. "I didn't throw it out Dear, it's under the bed".

I like the collapsible dishes, not only for the pets but also a set for left overs with lids and for general use. http://www.amazon.com/Bamboo-Silicon...apsible+dishes

I have a large collapsible bowl (that is handy for get togethers) and a collapsible strainer.

Our pots are from my parents wedding LOOONG time ago--Rena Ware...

I agree with Glen about the quality--yes, I have Pampered Chef stuff and Norwex for the trailer..

And Corelle dishes are great--we don't use the mugs either..We use our stainless ones.

Cheap but heavy glass beer mugs but Lurex wine glasses?Hmm, we did have glass wine glasses for many years but they were too small!

I have a whistling teakettle that gets hard use. It's small and fits in another pot. Best of all it has a loud whistle so I can put it on to heat and just keep an ear out for the alert. They still make these - a 6 cup revereware kettle - they run about 16 bucks

I read somewhere (possibly on this forum) that a Thermos Nissan Thermal cooker is good idea for foods that need longish cooking times. Do any of you have experience using it?

Hi Sylvia,
We bought the Nissan Thermal Cooker and it does a great job for soup, stews, and the like. The stainless pot that comes with it doubles as a 'regular' cooking pot on the stove saving some space. Kinda pricey, but very well made.

I really like the small Rubbermaid cutlery drawer recommended on this forum and it doubles the top drawer space. Some other items I've found useful in the kitchen are: magnetic spice holders, microfibre dish drying mat, command hooks for hanging stove lighter, Broadstone nesting pots/skillet (not the best quality but a good price, very light and the set meets all of my pan needs), Lagostina skillet with fold-in handles (the pot set fits in it perfectly), battery operated puck light for the pantry, Rubbermaid and Ziploc containers that stack inside each other, 2 cutting boards that can double as trivets. As others have said, Corelle is wonderful. Happy shopping
