Duralex Toddler/Child Dish Set
Archer has put together a small Duralex place setting for toddlers and children. As proud parents to our two children we strive to use products that are non-toxic and safe to handle and there is nothing better than glass when serving food. Tempered glass – in addition to being shock and thermal resistant – is BPA free and non-toxic. Due to its unique strengthening process, Duralex glassware is suitable for both hot and cold applications, and is microwave and dishwasher safe. Our little girls have dropped their Gigogne cups many times and we haven't lost one yet! NOTE: Due to the manner of production, it is normal to find small bubbles or intermittent "wave" patterns in the glass. This occurs naturally during the tempering process and does not effect strength.

Duralex has been manufacturing glassware and tabletop products in La Chapelle-Saint-Mesmin (France) for over 65 years. In 1939, the Duralex brand was purchased by Saint-Gobain, who had recently introduced their process of tempering molded glass to the market. Since that time, the very name "Duralex" has been synonymous with "toughened" glassware fabricated utilizing their proprietary process. "Toughening" glass is accomplished by heating glass beyond its annealing point. Annealing is the process of cooling recently formed glass at a slow rate to relieve internal stresses created during the forming process. By heating the annealed glass to approximately 720º Celsius and then cooling it rapidly, the end result is a substance four to six times stronger than conventional glass. Tempered glass is particularly effective for use in microwave ovens and it is used frequently in applications where safety is an issue as tempered glass will break into large chunks if shattered as opposed to sharp, jagged pieces. Injuries are less likely and cleaning up considerably easier.
Duralex glassware is suitable for cold or hot applications. They are stackable, impact and chip resistant, microwave-proof and dishwasher-safe.
