In the Mid-50s, Corning scientists, Dr. Eugene Stookey, accidentally discovered a new material. When he was engaged in the study of photosensitive glass lenses, an oven thermostat was broken , he felt a higher temperature should have caused the glass to melt into liquid , but when the oven door is opened, what was seen is solid and transparent glass being changed into opaque white.
The glass removed from the oven and due to the high heat it fell to the ground and this time, he was surprised that the glass did not break. Dr. Stookey was fascinated and begin testing such material, which is what we know as glass ceramic (Glass – Ceramic), and its name is called Pyroceram. Pyroceram was first used in the application of technology in the intercontinental missile’s nose cone. In 1950, Corning Corporation for the U.S.space program developed a super heat-resistant glass ceramic, with the nose cone as intercontinental missiles. Coming Ware is a direct by-product. From recent market research, Corningware is the most popular cookware brand in America, with brand recognition up to 98%.
There is a “homogeneous on the Addict” TV commercial that has locked in the deep imagination of consumers. Frozen Corning Ware’s bring frozen in another ice, while the other end is put near a flame from a flaming gun, pot does not have any damage. With such a feature of being able to withstand extraordinary temperature difference, Corning began offering a 10-year guarantee with free replacement if pot breaks from hot/cold temperature changes. A known history of events cannot explain the unusual circumstance in the incredible strength and durability of Corningware.
