Founded in 1939, Duralex has been manufacturing glassware and tabletop products in La Chapelle-Saint-Mesmin, a city in the heart of France. Since 1939, when Duralex invented the glass tempering process, the name Duralex has been associated with resilient glassware, thanks to their proprietary tempering process. The original tempered (toughened) Picardie glasses are still in production in France and are known as the "Original French Tumblers." The Picardie glass is the perfect weight: functional yet stylish and feels extremely comfortable in the hand. They are equally suitable for cold or hot drinks, conveniently stackable, impact and chip resistant, microwave and dishwasher safe. With the help of continuous investments and commitment to quality, Duralex has reached a level of excellence that makes its products recognized throughout the world. Duralex is and will always remain a true French manufacturer of glassware and tabletop products, and is the only glass manufacturer that makes 100% of their products in France.
Top Customer Reviews
Both my wife and I grew up with these glasses in our childhood homes, so when it came time to purchase glassware together, getting Picardie was a no-brainer. We own the 8.75oz, 12oz, and 16oz glasses. We'll use the 8 3/4 for our morning milk or OJ, and we use the 16oz for smoothies, but these 12oz versions get used for everything else. They're the perfect size for a glass of water or holding an 8oz can of soda (you only want to fill them to about 2/3 of their rated capacity to prevent spilling), and we get by far the most use out of them.
There's a reason these glasses have been around, essentially unchanged, for almost 90 years. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
Twice this happened while unloading the dishwasher (once fully cooled, once when they were still hot). Twice they exploded in the cabinet well after they'd been put away. And the other 2 times they exploded in our hands. None of these times were a result of them touching another surface (knocking, dinging, etc.). Fortunately no one has been hurt, but I'm replacing them now before that changes. The last thing I want is my toddler to be in the room when a tumbler explodes and get glass in her face. This has only happened with the largest glasses, but I'm not taking any chances. I'm tossing out the entire set.
Yes, these tumblers stack well and hold a lot. I'd love to rate them highly for function, but I think their inherent danger far outweighs any possible positive of their general design. Be very careful.
