World Kitchen to Unveil New Vintage Charm™ Brand

World Kitchen announced that it is introducing a new line of vintage-inspired prep and serve bowls called Vintage Charm™ Inspired by Pyrex®. Taking a cue from the beloved designs of the classic Pyrex "opal glass" bowls from the 50's and 60's, the Vintage Charm brand puts a modern twist on the popular patterns that evoke feelings of nostalgia. These vintage-inspired pieces come in six patterns including: Birds of a Feather, Spot On, Rise & Shine, Golden Days, Memory Lane and Tickled Pink – trendsetters can add a little flair to their home decor to achieve a retro-style entertaining experience. The Vintage Charm bowls are available in select housewares and grocery stores now, and will be available at mass retailers in time for the 2015 holidays. The patterns will be sold separately and as a three piece set including one small, medium and large bowl for MSRP: $29.99. The patterns will also be sold as a six piece set including one small, medium and large bowl with lids for each for MSRP: $39.99. Open stock products range MSRP: $6.99-14.99. All bowls are dishwasher, freezer and microwave safe for ease and convenience while entertaining.

Ontario Court of Appeal Provides Update on the Lawsuit Against World Kitchen and Corning

The Ontario Court of Appeal has upheld a jury verdict in favour of a London, Ontario-area man in the North American lawsuit against the makers of Visions glass cookware, Corning Incorporated and World Kitchen Inc. In rejecting the cookware makers appeal, the three-judge panel ruled that if there had been adequate product warnings, Stilwell's wife would likely not have purchased the Visions glass cookware. On Sept. 11(th), 2000, Lanny Stilwell, a married father of two from Beachville (outside London) was rinsing a Visions glass Dutch Oven, when it suddenly broke into four sharp pieces. Stilwell lost the use of his right hand, after his nerves, tendon and artery were severed, causing permanent damage. A London jury awarded Stilwell $1.15 million in damages on June 12(th), 2013, after finding that the makers of Visions glass cookware, World Kitchen Inc., and Corning Incorporated, were negligent by not including labels warning consumers to stop using their glass cookware products, if banged or dropped.
