Good Morning Gentle Readers,
On her way from the dishwasher to hang up three sparkling clean wine glasses, The House Blond got a little distracted and jumped into animated conversation mode. As she became engrossed in relating the story, a particularly emphatic hand gesture sent all three glasses flying. Two of them exploded instantly, sending glass shrapnel in every direction. The third slammed onto the ceramic tile and skittered across the kitchen floor where it then ricocheted out from under the kick space and came to a halt by the sink. Undamaged.
Plastic? Nope. We have plastic wine glasses for the boat, but not at the Casa. These are roomy, good looking, twenty ounce Italian glasses, with enough swirl room to satisfy even guys the Kosmik Kid, who need a lot of glass to enjoy a big, bold red. The titanium reinforced stems also add strength and they'll hold up to the dishwasher.
I was a bit skeptical of Luigi Bormioli's claim that the glasses were nigh on unbreakable, but the proof is in the puddin' so to speak. I watched the glass bounce across the floor and it didn't break, chip, or mar, which may explain the twenty-five year warranty.
Wish I'd had unbreakable glasses hanging up when the wine glass rack let loose one night and left this mess behind.....
