Love the look, but not as strong as advertised
August 14, 2012
I originally fell in love with these due to the thinness, shape and height of the product. I felt the purchase was justified b/c the product was advertised as titanium strong.
I bought two chardonnay and two burgundy glasses. I loved them. After having broken one of each, I decided to replace them for a full set of 6 each. Not sure where my logic was in that, but I was still in love with these glasses :)
Sadly, I am now down to one Chardonnay and three Burgundy glasses. A simple graze of the glass on the shutters behind sink the while washing them caused the most recent break. I'm not sure if the Titanium that is supposedly in them breaks down b/c it seems to happen after months of use.
I will not replace them again. My love for the product has turned into a crush. Im headed back to my trusted (and thicker) Luigi Bormioli's. W-S, please stock up on a Luigi Bormioli that I can switch to easily. Thanks!
Pros: look (height), feel
Cons: breaks easily, expensive
