I Got Some Mad Skill...ets - My P-Series Cornflower Collection (Part 2)

Well, last night's dinner was responsible for this collection post.  It was a tour de force in skillet usage. Thus, I decided since I had half of my skillets out on the stove or in the oven already, it would be fitting to make "Skillets" Part 2 of my P-series Cornflower Collection.  And quite the Skillet Stockpile it is...  

Top - P-7-B with P-7-C lid (7 inch) sitting in a P-9-B with P-9-C lid (9 inch) sitting on the P-10-B with P-10-C lid (10 inch) sitting on the P-16-B with P-12-C lid (11 inch). 

I do have 5 other skillets in Cornflower, but they are technically not part of the P-Series.  One is an A-series Electromatic Skillet pan (A-22) so I will save that one when I cover the Electromatic Skillets;  2 are Rangetoppers which are N-Series so those will have to wait.  The other two, however, I will go ahead add.... because there really don't have any place else to be.

My 1st and 2nd Generation 10 inch skillets with the Pyroceram lids. (they are really 9 7/8 inches, so the P-10-C lids will not fit them, conversely their Pyroceram lids don't fit on the P-10-B either)

The top one is the 1st Generation (1958/59) with the embossed information on the bottom in the center stating "Corning Pyroceram  Made in the U.S.A". 

The one on the bottom is the 2nd Generation (1959/60) with the fuzzy blue print on the bottom stating '10 IN" Corning Ware Pyroceram Made in the U.S.A'.

Neither of these pieces have model numbers, since model numbers didn't exist yet, (the B-38 on the 1st Gen piece is a mold number, not a model number).  Even though these pieces are model number-less, the P-series detachable handles fit on their lugs, so for all intensive purposes, these are P-series as well.

Where is your Corning Ware??

  1. Very nice! I am missing the p-7 and I have the second generation 10 inch with pyroceram lid (no first generation pieces for me, yet).

    Oddly, the other day I bought an A-25 which just turned out to be a p-2 1/2 labelled as an A series (I thought that was what it was, but I had to bring it home to confirm it).

  2. What a coincidence! I found an A-10-B cornflower today at the thrift store. I am hoping to use it for baking.

  3. I saw one of those pieces with a pyroceram lid and a gold-tinted carrying piece at a Goodwill in Vancouver, WA today. You didn't lose one, did you? XD
