Having previously owned a different pair of double walled Bodum glases, I knew these would be delicate. I considered that through this review, and my use of the product.
Very Thin Glass
The Glass will break
I have previously owned a pair of double walled coffee mugs from Bodum. One of them was broken when they arrived, and the other one was placed loose in a sink, and broke. These are delicate, so I took care of them. I suppose part of the idea of the double wall is that there is no need for ice, because the glasses are well insulated. And these glases ARE well insulated. You no longer need coasters for wood surfaces, because condensation will not form on the outside, and the drink probably stays cooler longer. However, I wanted a cold drink. I, knowing the glases are delicate, lowered a cube of ice into an empty cup as far as my hand would fit, then dropped it. The bottom of the glass cracked. So, These are NOT strong. If you want these, get them as an occasional use glass. You should hand wash each one individually, and do not use them regularly. These are very nice, but because of the poor construction, I cannot recommend them.
