1.0 out of 5 stars Not what they used to be...., March 27, 2012

This review is from: Bodum Pavina 8-Ounce Double Wall Thermo Glass, Set of 6 (Kitchen)
We have owned Bodum Pavina and similar Bodum vacuum glassware for many years. We were disappointed when we opened these to find that they have changed.Firstly, the bottom of the clear glass now has white writing on it in addition to the standard Bodum logo. This takes away from the naked drink look.
More importantly, the glasses that arrived from Amazon, had a piece of silicone on the bottom plugging the hole that was used to blow the glassware. Aside from taking away from clean look of the glasses, its only a matter of time before this plug falls out and they fill with water as other reviewers have pointed out.
The real question is whether these 'newer' Bodum glasses even have a vacuum at all.
Amazon, as always, promptly addressed my concerns.

It was never a vacuum between the inner and outer glass, it's just an air gap. I've had two of the 8 oz Pavina tumblers for months and haven't had any water issues. (They do specifically say hand wash, though; I would expect the heat and water of a dishwasher to leak in through the seal.)

The silicone plug is there not to cover up the hole used to blow the glass as mentioned. It is there for air to escape when the glass is heated. Without it there is a risk that the glass would just blow-up. It acts like a safety valve. Quite a marvelous piece of engineering, really.

I had these glasses prior to the plug--nothing ever blew up.
