Sounds like a conspiracy hoax (to make them planned obsolesent) to me. Corelle is not and has never been "unbreakable" but they are "break and chip resistant". We've had about 3 sets in our for about 40 years. We still have and use almost all of the three sets regularly (I like to wash them infrequently in our two person household.) We have a ceramic tile kitchen floor and over the years we have broken some pieces by dropping them. Often they survive dropping. When they do break it is dramatic, breaking into many pieces but I think the pieces are less hazardessn not as small or sharp as regular glass. There is a comdic youtube video that show a Corelle bowl breaking on the 4th drop at: (it finally breaks about 4:30 into the 6:50 video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hpt1ABoPuNs Fred -- Fred H.
