A retro-spective on Corning's space-age glass ceramic material, Pyroceram cookware.
Oh Shane, you speak Corningware so eloquently. Just lovely, indeed.
Be still, my heart
I have never seen that, or even heard of it.
Stop you? No! I want you to keep going and going and going....Very nice set up. I love the P 4 B's (somehow I've wound up with 3 sets). Don't think I've ever seen a P 53 before - id it a mini version of the electric skillet?
Patricia, I had never seen nor heard of one either until about a year ago when I saw one on the bluecornflower.com.... I have been hunting for one ever since. I have also been hunting for a lid for my W-4-B for about the same amount of time. Those lids seem to be REALLY hard to find. Then yesterday, everything just kind of came together.Yes Vicki, it's really a mini version of the Electromatic Skillet. The only real difference, is that there is a timer on the side instead of a thermostat so you don't get to choose how hot it gets. When you plug it in and set the timer, it heats up to it's "Optimal" temperature (which I am not sure what that is), once at temperature the timer kicks on and it maintains the heat until it the timer runs out, then it shuts itself off.
Just yesterday I went to the thrift store and found a P-4-B with lid in Blue Cornflower. I grabbed it. Of course no electric base. Maybe I should have looked in another department for that. I also found a P-270-B and a Litton microwave skillet. It was a great haul.
I want that!!!
