glasses break spontaneously after 6 months
on April 20, 2010
First, I'm not sure how many of these reviews are long-term or if we just got a "bad batch" of glasses. My initial reaction was that the cups were nice for the money. They are pretty obviously not great glasses, but considering the price, it was alright.
Now that we've had the cups for over 7 months, I'm complaining. Over the past 2 weeks, glasses have been mysteriously breaking left and right. We had a full set 2 weeks over and now are down to only 2 of our 8 tall glasses remaining and have lost a few of the small cups too. They're fine going into the dishwasher, then come out broken. Considering nothing has changed since we got the cups, it's like they've reached their life expectancy. To clarify, NONE of these broken cups were dropped/knocked over -- a few times, we'd simply put a glass down on a table or in the dishwasher and it just breaks.
Today and yesterday, I picked up 2 unbroken glasses and they each broke in my hands, leaving me holding a giant shard of glass with the other half of the cups on the table or in the sink. I'm a petite person and it's not like I've been working out. Currently, we have 4 broken glasses sitting on the kitchen island all from this week. Ridiculous.
Again, I'm not sure if it was just a defective batch, but I certainly don't plan on re-ordering.
