      Fine mug, made of glass

      By Jay

      Pros

      • Crystal Clear
      • Insulated
      • Large
      • Lightweight

      Cons

        Best Uses

          I'm a little dismayed to read the several reviews where the main complaint is that this mug broke after falling onto a hard surface. Yes, this mug is made of borosilicate glass, which is stronger than regular glass of the same thickness, but it is still glass. The big benefit of this kind of glass is that it can be made into vessels (like this one) with very thin walls that are lightweight. The other major benefit is about durability with regard to heat changes--a very important factor in a mug used for hot beverages.

          I have not had to be particularly ginger with this mug compared to other items made of glass. It is no doubt less able to withstand drops and shocks than heavy glass tumblers or other thick glassware, but treated with moderate care it hold up fine. I like to be able to see the beautiful color of my tea and other drinks, and the small measure of insulation this mug provides is nice. It also has a graceful shape that feels good in the hand.

          The perfect tea cup that stays cool

            I love how elegant this cup is and how good it feels in your hand. The outside stays perfectly cool making it easy to hold and the handle is big enough to slip my hand in while grasping around the cup. Cannot say if it keeps my tea hot longer - the tea is so good, I drink it long before it has a chance to get cool! It is thin and light weight which is what I assume other reviewers are describing as "fragile" but so far, I haven't had any issues.

            Enjoying this but seems fragile

                  I think this is a lovely mug and works for all types of beverages, not just tea. I have always hand-washed it personally after use to ensure that it is handled gently. However after a few weeks, it has a little pucker at the bottom, like it was melting in one spot. That's a bummer. So instead of being clear all over, the bottom now has one spot that is sunken in. I guess that is from pouring hot water in the mug. But tea is supposed to be hot! Too bad this mug is so prone to problems.

                  Great Mug For Work

                  By Nick the Engineer

                  from Ohio

                  Pros

                  • Attractive Design
                  • Large
                  • Well insulating

                  Cons

                  • Very fragile

                  Best Uses

                    As others have mentioned, the cup is fragile. I took this into account when I purchased it, and I'm easy on it during the day. I can carry it around the office with the handle, but when I set it down I make sure I'm easy on it. It's second nature at this point, so it's not too much of a hassle.

                    I also wash mine daily by hand which only takes about a minute. Overall, very satisfied with this mug. I will keep an eye on its integrity as some reviewers have noted how it breaks into splinters.

                    Best Uses

                      I really loved this cup, I really did. It kept the tea warm for so long and was so comfortable to hold.

                      At first I scoffed (I now apologize to you all) at those that complained about how easily this cup broke. Well, I dropped mine (luckily it was empty at the time), it fell less than a foot onto my mattress and shattered into so many shards, not big pieces mind you, but little bitty shards!

                      I would really watch out if you have small children in the house.

                            Love the Grande mugs. I purchased 4 for myself and 2 as gifts for my son and his family. I love that I can see through the mug. The tea just tastes better when you can see the deep rich color. I do not put them in the dishwasher or microwave oven. I haven't had any breakage yet and I have had 2 of them for a few years now and use them daily.

                                My son gave me this cup when I last visited him. He had two. I use it every morning at breakfast. My wife said she wanted one so I looked up for a store here and purched 2 more cups. They were a bit to high in price, but everything good cost more. She also loves her new cup, and I always wash the cups by hand thats the best way I think.

                                    My boyfriend recently gave me this mug as a gift and I couldn't be happier with it! It is absolutely beautiful and the color of the tea is on display. I was worried that it wouldn't keep the tea warm for long but the double walled design is perfect! The outside of the mug stays warm at most to the touch while the tea says at temperature! My only qualm with it is that it isn't microwaveable. But beggars can't be choosers!

                                    I was looking for a cup that was big enough to use with my 16oz Perfect Tea maker, but without the weight of a coffee mug. I didn't expect this cup to be so light, yet still be glass. What a nice surprise! I love how large the handle is too, so easy to hold. You won't regret this purchase! I'm getting another one.
