You say that Barkeepers Friend did not help - that is usually one of the first suggestions.

  • Baking soda sprinkled on damp dishes and scrubbed with a non-abrasive pad or sponge usually will remove most of these marks.
  • Baking powder is actually milder than Barkeepers Friend but one of these usually does clean marks off CorningWare dishes.
  • You might try CorningWare's trademark cleaner as it is supposed to remove stains and marks.
  • Its possible the cleanser made for ceramic top stoves would work as they are made of similar material.
  • Both of these cleansers can be purchased at Wal Mart type stores or on line.

You probably have scratches. Try a magic eraser

After not much success with BKF and a plastic scrubbie, BKF with a magic eraser worked fairly well

They are listed as non-toxic. They are made from a melamine foam, a similar material to hard plastic dishes. It works as an abrasive, like fine sandpaper. Here is a wikipedia article about the material.

The suggestion to use a cleaning product for ceramic cooktops was spot on (or rather spot off!) for instantly taking a food stain off my white Corelle plate. Baking soda, lemon, etc made no difference. I bet it works for other stains, too.

Try baking soda ...
You may have to repeat several times to get the full benefit

It's not just Corningware. Other types of ceramic cups and so forth have this problem. Cheap materials from China. I know as I have some of the newer pieces of Corningware that are the same as those that are over 25 years old made in the USA. Best thing to use is an abrasive made of soda paste and water with a drop of dish detergent and A LOT of elbow grease.


Best thing I did was throw out the new and start looking for the old at second hand shops. Until Ameican companies start doing it right, I will stick with the old.

Corning ware dishes, at least the old ones, are made of glass. My corning ware was purchased when I was married....over 50 years ago. I used to have a glass cooktop cleaner that took these utensil marks off with little or no scrubbing. It was from Germany and I can't buy it anymore. The glass is harder than the metal that utensils are made of. Now I am in the same boat as the rest of you who have corning ware dishes and love them. Other brands of glass cooktop cleaner haven't worked. I am going to try out the baking soda paste idea and see if it works for me. Wish me luck.

Possibly the Pfaltzgraff cleaner. I heard it was great stuff. Yep, that and the Corningware Brand Cleaner are both gone. You "may" be able to find new old stock for outrageous prices on ebay. As an alternative, both Weimann and CeraBryte both make good products for cleaning stovetops, stoneware and Corningware.


Those products will remove 99% of "baked on" stains (0000 steel wool also helps without scratching) and stoneware utensil marks.
