I ordered these glasses a few days before Thanksgiving because I needed them for Thanksgiving dinner. Because Amazon offers only a few glasses of this general sort via Amazon Prime, it was easy to decide on these - I liked the unusual shape. Now that I've had them for a month or so, I'm back to order 12 more. The somewhat unusual shape makes them pleasant to hold and easier to hang on to. I also like how the light goes through the glass - it has the same warbling effect as old glass. Nothing has broken yet and they seem reasonably solid.

Size Name: Double Old Fashioned GlassProduct Packaging: Standard PackagingVerified Purchase
We've owned these for a few years now. The best glassware we've used. Regular glassware if they fell, would most likely break, and sometimes in the dishwasher glasses would chip. NOT THESE!!! Of course if you drop them enough they will break, but we've had none break yet, and we are clumpsy. They are very sturdy. they have a unique design. Heavy weighted.

We got eight of these (and eight old-fashioned, slightly larger in diameter). Great looking glasses; not ridiculously thin or absurdly heavy. Feel great in the hand. They're also sturdy. I dropped a mobile phone on one twice and it made a ringing noise (the glass, not the phone ;) ) and was fine. The indentations make it very pleasant to hold in the hand. Each glass is obviously cast since the indendations are precisely the same on all the glasses we got. We're probably getting 4 more since we like them so much and would like to ensure against future breakage.

Everything everyone else has described is right on, but I'll add 3 flaws and 3 strengths.

Three flaws:
The cool texture of the sides of the glass itself do not allow large ice cubes to fit in as easily as they would into a regular (boring) glass; some iced drinks or mixed drinks made with lower quality booze are better with more ice, and - if you only have large cubes on hand - it is far from ideal.

The second issue is that the glasses are just slightly too big around to give you a 100% sure hold on them until you have used them for a while (a physical learning curve). I should note that I have never dropped them and neither have any folks that have used them with smaller hands, but they take a bit of getting used to, just edging them out from from being hands-down the best glasses of all time.

They also take up slightly more room than simple (again, probably boring), round glasses in the cabinet. If you have limited space (a small apartment, for example, maybe just small cupboards), but are considering ordering several sets, you might want to get 2 set and some of their other, fine glasses, perhaps some that are stackable.

Three overlooked positives:
The top half inch of the glass is smooth with a barely noticeable, yet slightly larger bead on the rim, a very nice touch that keeps your lips firm during every sip.

The bottom of the glass is concave, preventing the glass from sticking when wet from an iced drink or just on a hot day when you need a cool drink.

Most importantly, the glasses just do not want to fall over, I have a pet peeve for tipsy glasses, not so much for tipsy friends.

Update:
I've bought the taller Bormioli Rocco Sorgente Cooler Glasses, Set of 4, Gift Boxed a few days ago, and I already feel like they are a better choice, even though they are a bit less twisty (and cool), and are more narrow and taller, slightly increasing their likeliness to tip over and slightly reducing their unique look.

As others have stated this is very good glassware.

Quality material which arrived with no imperfections. The base is very wide and thick which gives the glass some real weight and stability. The body of the glass is adequately thick and has an attractive and unique design that is also very ergonomic, it just feels good in your hand. The top 1/2 inch or so is not wavy like the rest of the glass allowing your lips to make solid contact where you will drink.

Great quality, design and a fair price. I expect these will stand the test of time.

Side note - Bormioli Rocco and a tack sized star-burst symbol are inconspicuously etched into the bottom center of the glass.

When my husband and I created our wedding registry, we read review after review of glassware that broke. Bormioli glasses, however, seemed to get good reviews. We've had them now for 2 1/2 years and not a single break or chip. We have the juice glasses, on-the-rocks glasses, and water glasses--about 30 pieces in total.

We also chose these because we loved the design--we are big hikers with a great love of nature. The shape of these reminded us of natural formations found in nature. Everyone comments on how beautiful and fun they are. They are funky without being wacky; whimsical yet not so silly that they can't be used on a more formal holiday table. We love them and couldn't be more pleased. I would definitely purchase more Bormioli products.

I needed to get some new glasses, as all of my old ones have broken recently. I thought these looked interesting, so I decided to the try them. I can't vouch for their strength, as I've only been using them about 2 months, but we haven't broken any yet. The glass is NOT flimsy. They're sturdy with some weight to them - the bottom is quite thick. The top (the rim) of the glass is round, although the base is irregularly shaped. It was hard to tell from the photo, but the glass is twisted and dented and unusual all the way up the glass - very interesting! Overall these glasses are refreshing and unique and I'm quite glad I purchased them.

They also work well with this ice mold: Tovolo Sphere Ice Molds Set

Awesome! They also appear to hold more than I thought they would.

I waited 1 year to write this review.....I generally do not own 'glass' glasses, I break them! I have owned 2 sets of the water glasses & 2 sets of the old fashions and LOVE LOVE LOVE these glasses! They are durable, great looking, easy to wash(no indent on bottom to catch water!) I have lost 1 glass but not to my fault! My kitten knocked the glass off a counter onto a concrete floor. Incredibly the glass did break but only at top and in only 3 pieces. No shatter. Would highly recommend these to anyone and am ordering an addition set to complete my set of 12.
