CORNING AMBER VISIONS SKILLETS

NOTE: This identification guide is best viewed in landscape orientation on mobile devices.

A full range of skillets was offered in Amber Visions, from a 7" perfect for eggs and individual pancakes up through a 10" family size. An incredibly versatile 9" sauté pan, labeled a "Chicken Fryer" in the US, with sides 3" deep was also offered. Typically, Visions skillets feature a unique "waffle" texture on the interior bottom. The lower areas of the design act as reservoirs to hold oil/butter more evenly across the width of the vessel resulting in more uniform cooking.

"9 inch Skillet"

MARKING (Handle): VISION CORNING (FRANCE or USA)

Sold from 1985 until 1990, this 9" skillet was originally sold with no cover. However, when the V-12 9" Chicken Fryer was introduced in 1987 it could take advantage of the same lid - a Pyrex V-12-C in Fireside brown.

Amber Visions 9 Inch "Chicken Fryer" Sauté Pans

These 9 inch sauté pans are the ultimate Visions vessel for browning chicken and slowly cooking other meats, fish, and vegetables to perfection. Great for saucy or water-based cooking. The ideal depth to hold lots of chicken plus the required oil to fry to a crisp brown. Large, family-size, capacity is also great for browning roasts and stove-top braising.

"9 inch (2 1/2 Qt.) Chicken Fryer with Cover"

MARKING (Handle): VISION CORNING FRANCE

Sold from 1987 until 1990, this 9" 2.5 Liter sauté pan uses a Pyrex V-12-C lid in Fireside brown. Early shipments featured a slightly different lid, with a small knob similar to the one found on the V-10-C. It may be marked only "24cm".

"10 inch Covered Skillet"

MARKING (Handle): VISION CORNING (FRANCE or USA) 10

Sold from 1984 until 1990, this 10" skillet was originally sold with a Pyrex V-10-C lid in Fireside brown but these seem uncommon. An unmarked V-5-C is more regularly found with them. You can quickly differentiate between them as the V-10-C has a smaller knob, more in line with the saucepan lids, and may be marked only "26cm".

"10 inch (Smooth) Skillet"

MARKING (Handle): VISION CORNING USA 10

It's unclear exactly when this smooth-bottom 10" skillet was sold. However, the fact it seems to be sourced from a mold used for the "Non-Stick VISIONS" skillet of the same size would highly suggest it was produced during the same era (1990-1994). It was found without a cover, however an amber V-5-C would fit and be the most era-appropriate.
