It may be the design. I have several patterns from yard sales etc. and I found that some do stick together as the OP discusses - generally with limited embossing. The ones that have a slightly raised pattern in the center do better at not sticking such as the Corelle Indian Summer pattern -

Here's a question for you... so you've got your soapy dishes in the dish rack, do you take them out one by one to rinse, and if so, where do you put the wet, rinsed dishes while there are still soapy ones in the rack? What's your method? This is obviously too complicated for me to handle by myself

We have a sprayer in the sink so I just pull it out and spray the dishes with hot water, move them around a little to make sure the soap is gone, then let them dry right there. Another suggestion was to pour some pans of hot water over them.

Since I am a man my original plan was to let the soap dry on them and just take them out of the rack for each meal. I was going to bungee them down tight for travel. Saving on time and soap. My wife discouraged me, however. Something about the taste of food if I heard her correctly.

So what you have from me is plan B but I assure you it beats the stuck together plates.

Amazon.com: discontinued-corelle-patterns

Amazingly I find this stuff all over the internet. Here is a list from Amazon. Who would have thought of vintage corelle wear? Makes me wish I had an older motor home.

BTW, next time ANYTHING sticks without mercy just submerge into deep water and it will release, (flower pots, glasses. and anything else that can 'fit and stick ' releases with this method... Just a few thoughts...
Yes, I usually stack soapy dishes in the sink then rinse them one by one. None of the dishes I have ever owned stuck together when wet. The front and back surfaces of those I've owned don't have the same shape and there is room between the edges of stacked plates to get a fingertip in between them easily.

That sounds like a good tip: submerging things in water to get them to separate. I'd rather avoid that much use of water especially when boondocking.

Get a dog or cat, let them lick the plates clean and put them back in the cabinet.

Works good in front of un-wanted guests and inlaws. They won't be coming back for a free meal.

Seriously, I have never had Corelle dishes stick in over 35 years. Maybe after some use, the bottoms will get some tiny scratches and eliminate the sticking.

Due to the dishes shape and tight fit to each other when stacked. When they get wet they do form a hydraulic suction to one another. Nothing more then creating their own hydraulic vacuum. The plates are the worse, due to their size you have a larger cohesion effect. We rinse them one at a time and stack them in the right side double sink. I just grab the top plate with a finger nail and slide it sideways and it releases its hold. Never thought of it as a problem. We love our Norcold and our Corelle.

Our cats will jump right up on the table and lick everything clean. Then your ready for the next meal. No need to put them away.

Corelle is a brand of glassware and dishware. It is made of Vitrelle, a tempered glass product consisting of two types of glass laminated into three layers. The thermal bonding of these layers gives Corelle its strength, allowing it to be thinner and lighter than other dinnerware. Nonetheless it is remarkably durable, in addition to being chemical resistant, and is both dishwasher and microwave safe.

Where are your dirty dishes while you are washing one-by-one? Usually mine are all in the sink. (I have next to no counter space and no place really to attach a flip-up auxiliary shelf.) I have a really small double sink. Dirty dishes in one side which I wash and move to the second side (which is where they get stuck together) then rinse one by one and place in the dish rack on the countertop to dry. That's how I do it at home, anyway. In the RV I don't have room on the countertop for a dish rack. I bought one of those small ones that fits in one of my sinks.
