I ordered this set based on the representation of being the most break resistant glasses. I was replacing some of the inevitably broken flutes from other sets purchased in the past. I was expecting them to be able to withstand normal handling, since our experience with most champagne flutes is that they are delicate, by design, and break very easily. My concern with this set is that one was broken the very first time we used the glasses, and there was no rough handling. The glass literally shattered in a guest's hand as she was sliding a thin wash cloth into it to clean the glass. No significant force was involved, and the cloth in question, a reusable/diposable Handi-wipe, is very thin, and should not have caused any unusual stress on the glass. But the glass still broke and could have caused injury in the process. I was very disappointed.
These flutes have a very narrow opening compared to the Reidel flutes. The first time you take a sip you will notice your nose gets in the way when you turn one up for a drink. They look better than they drink.
We ordered a full set of this stemware for my husbands birthday to replace his Mikasa. The first time I washed the Chardonnay glass, it lightly stuck to something on the towel I used for draining and gently tapped against the cabinet and broke the stem. The third time I used the pinot glass, my husband was wiping it out with a wash cloth and the entire side broke off. I've had lead crystal for 30 years and the only stem that has broken was one a guest dropped on my hearth. I want to send the entire order back. It was not as advertised.
These glasses are stylish and durable. They are a great size for large and small hands and despite their slender design, they are not top heavy so they do not tip over easily. I recommend to any champagne lover serve to serve their best in these glasses.
Great flutes to add to your collection of stemware.
We needed additional flutes to compliment 4 Reidels for a very special champagne Sunday brunch. Didn't see any Reidels that matched and found this style of Fusion. While they didn't match, they are similar and very classy looking! Plus they don't break and we got two extras!!!
While I do like these glasses (I have them in several styles) If you read the "free" replacement it is $7.95 for "shipping" for each glass. They are only $7.50 to begin with. So I use them and when I break enough of them, I just order more.
Yes...they "Oversell" the durability. They say "10 year warranty",but the fine print says for materials and workmanship.
All that aside, here are the facts: 1) They ARE more durable that regular crystal, but not "unbreakable". I have had them knocked over on my Corian counter and they did not break. When dropped on the floor, however, they do break. BUT...they break in VERY different way than regular crystal. They break in 2 oe 3 or 5 or 7 pieces...they do NOT shatter into 1000 parts and go all over the place.
Glasses break. These break less than others and, when they do break, do not explode all over the place.
The design of the champagne glass makes for great Bellini presentations. Thought these glasses would be great for service by the pool; not so fast, very disappointing when they not only break, but break into pieces.
