"I hesitated before buying these as I'd seen a few reviews that said that two people experienced a glass 'exploding' when hot liquids were poured into them. Well, so far I've had nothing to suggest that this would happen. I've poured boiling hot water into them a few times to pre-warm them before making a drink in them and have not had the slightest problem.
Surprisingly, unlike glass, it takes a while for these to warm up even when filled with boiling water. About 30 sec after filling, the outside of the glass is only mild-warm, which I find quite reassuring and hence why I pre-heat my glasses before putting any drink in them. Consequently, there's minimal heat loss from the glass once the drink is made, so your drink is still nice and hot by the time you get to the bottom of the glass.
They are a very classic and simple style and I prefer having the handle on the body of the glass (some glasses have those smaller handles at the base of the glass). I find it makes it easier to balance a full drink - being able to relax while holding a drink is as important at the drink itself!"

"Spent ages searching for glasses that would suit Irish Coffee and Mulled Wine. These glasses are brilliant. Delivered speedily, well packaged and perfect for Christmas."

"After looking over many different internet sites as well as a large proportion of high street shops, it was on drinkstuff.com that I actually found what I was looking for. Apart from being similarly priced and cheaper than other products, from what I could judge from the photo; the "Irish Coffee Glasses 10.2oz" looked a lot better quality than the general glasses I was used to seeing (I was proved right, when the glasses arrived). I bought two packs which actually ended up around £4 cheaper than a local competitor, PLUS I actually received 2 glasses extra than this competitor was selling. The glasses were well packaged, and arrived exactly within the estimated delivery time! For those who have figured it out yet: Extremely happy and shall now be off to make some extra-strong Irish coffees!"
