Flamingo 080 (8 oz) casserole with 980 lid. Although most Lime & Flamingo bakeware debuted in 1952, this size did not appear until 1954.
Oval 043/943. Spring 1957, 043 & 045 casseroles were offered with this design, both with a cradle. Advertisements called it "smart yellow with charcoal flower decoration". It was the first printed pattern to appear on a casserole in a special gift promotion set. The few promotional casseroles that came before this were either solid-coloured or plain white.
575 Space Saver, Needlepoint. It was available during late 1957 when advertising described it as: "smart yellow with black needlepoint pattern." A cradle was also included in the set.
The pattern returned in late 1958 with a 443 Cinderella bowl in white on turquoise. Advertisements also called this variation "Needlepoint design". The bowl was paired with a 624 lid and a candle-warmer cradle.
441 Cinderella bowl. With a matching 444 and a metal bracket, it was part of a chip & dip set introduced spring 1958. The pattern was not given a name except for the description "White on Turquoise". Its design illustrates hot-air balloons and celestial symbols.
575 Space Saver with 550 lid. Paired with a cork-handled cradle, it was offered during spring 1958. It has no specific pattern name, its original box calling it a "Cinderella Cradled Space Saver Casserole". The design mainly depicts black roosters and sunflowers.
443 Cinderella bowl & 575 Space Saver, lids not shown. The pink 575 arrived in late 1958, with a 550 lid and a cradle. Advertising called it a Cinderella Serving Casserole.
In late 1959, the turquoise 443 was equipped with a 624 lid and a candle-warmer cradle. It is named differently in certain advertisements, either a Hospitality Casserole or simply a Serving Bowl.
472 Cinderella Twin Server. Introduced spring 1959, a Twin Server Set was comprised of two 472 casseroles and a cradle. No lids were provided, but any 470 lid will fit.
473 Cinderella Buffet Twins. Also from spring 1959, the Buffet Twins set included two 473s with plain clear lids and a cradle. The pattern is printed with gold leaf.
Divided dish (063) with 945 divided lid, yellow starburst design. Originally equipped with a dual candle-warmer, it appeared during spring 1959.

444 bowl, Golden Chip & Dip. Arriving late 1959, the Golden Chip & Dip set comprised two Cinderella bowls, 441 & 444, and a metal bracket. The same scroll design also appeared on a pink 575 in 1958 and a turquoise 443 in 1959.
