Odd question here: can these be used for warm beverages, like tea?

Dear Woot!,

I'm thinking, what would be neat is, maybe, someday, could ya maybe have wine on wine.woot again?

I know. Crazy talk, huh?

I'm probably bitter because someone jacked my Big ol' Cornucopia a fraction of a fraction of a second before I got it.

Seriously, how could that even have been possible.

I'm so bummed.

If only I had some wine to make me feel better...

Ummm... This is gift week....

Thursday doesn't usually have wine explaining none yesterday. There WAS wine on Wednesday.

Yes these can be used for hot beverages too.

I have been considering six Bodum tumblers for $40 shipped over at Crate and Barrel:
http://www.crateandbarrel.com/set-of-6-bodum-pavina-tumblers/s671284

There was a 15% coupon recently, but it is no longer valid. I think Discover is offering 10% cash back from Crate & Barrel.

I've heard the Bodum name a lot, and people seem pleased with their products. I am curious how they compare to these glasses.

Sooo...long time Wooter, first time caller...

I've had a Bodum set for a couple years now and I use em for wine, mixed drinks, beer,martinis, milk, coffee..well everything. It's the only glass I use, ever. They're light and they keep the drink at its temp while it helps keep your hand it's own temp as well.

Relatively speaking, this is a nice deal. My question is, unless I'm missing it, how many ounces?!

I've used a set of Bodum Pavina mainly for drinking water and tea and found them to be extremely tippy. The glasses themselves are very light, have very little mass on the bottom, and add that to the fact that they're also narrow at the bottom, they tend to tip over when bumped when they're close to being empty.

I've switched over to some no-name brand double walled glass mugs from a third party amazon vendor:
http://www.amazon.com/Glasses-Insulated-Perfect-Cappuccino-Chocolate/dp/B0058E3CR6
These mugs are also light, but because they're wider on the bottom, they don't tip over.

However, all glasses of this type are extremely fragile. I've broken one of the Pavina's while hand washing it by accidentally knocking it on my ceramic sink just a little too hard. Also I've read that tossing ice cubes into these types of double walled glasses can also shatter them, so I carefully slide ice down the side of mine.

I haven't used the glasses featured in this woot.

I was ALMOST in for 3 but the TIPPY killed it, guess better luck if they widen the bottoms.

Wondering the same. Would like to use these as hot coffee "mugs", but a little hesitant being that they are labeled wine glasses.

Woot! Staff....can you help us with an answer?!?

Thanks!

Until this sale, I've never seen double-walled glasses advertised as being for wine. Here in Australia they are mostly advertised as being for coffee and tea.

Gonna go ahead and take the plunge. Thanks for the response!

I have two of the Bodum 8 oz. mugs which work perfectly for hot liquid. Only difference in description is that they're labeled as "thermo".


Thanks, again!

I bought a set of much more expensive but similar glasses from Woot Home a little while ago. They have broader bases, are dishwashable, and I love them, but they were $10 a glass, not $3.

Even the Mothership has some very similar (they look identical) "wine enthusiast" glasses for $10/glass:

Amazon glasses

Those are apparently fine for hot liquids, although several users report that the glasses are not leakproof, with the contents sometimes leaking into the space between the glasses. I'd also be concerned by the lack of dishwashing, which is both inconvenient and suggests a problem with high temperature water.

All in all, I'm really happy with the other double-walled glasses I bought from Woot. If those come up again I'll get more, but I'll pass on these.

From the company's website:
True Fabrications Wine Glasses
Page lists them as designed for red and white wines.

Amazon has them sold singly at a high price of each at around $11.60:

True Fabrications Wine Glasses on Amazon

Only one review among all sites I found, none mentioned using it for hot products.

I bought similar glasses on woot a while back - not wine glasses but normal drinking glasses - double walled. They do work great. They are plastic but look just like glass and sound like glass when you clink them together. They don't fade with time - mine still look crystal clear - just like glass. They keep your drink at temp. My wife loves them because she can sit on the back porch in the humid summer with a cold ice drink and the glass does not condensate at all. And the drink stays ice cold, the ice won't melt fast. Just don't put them in the dishwasher - the vacuum inside the wall will expand and blow a hole and then suck in water. You'll have to throw it away. I originally had four, but now I'm down to two after making the same mistake twice. Now I'm waiting for another woot sale - for the normal glasses.

I have various sizes of the Bodum glasses and use them for everything - coffee, tea, wine, espresso, Bloody Mary's, you name it. They are NOT tippy (at least the ones I have are great). Would try these if I didn't have so many already. Love them in the summer and winter (no drink marks on furniture). I hand wash them and they still look beautiful.

The bodums are made of borosilicate glass and are dishwasher safe which may explain the price difference. Not sure about these. BTW, I caved and bought a set of these anyway - great price for 8 and you don't warm your wine with your hands.

I know it says that but does anyone actually have these? I have the 12 oz version from Bodum and they really hold 10 ounces.
And after 2.5 years, only 3 Bodums are left (was able to drop from chest height onto hardwood floor first year, then year 2 they start get delicate and I switched to regular mugs).

i thought the comment that the glasses tip over easy referred to another brand, not these particular glasses?

I'm trying to "add to my cart", from my phone, but every time I click on that it takes forever to load and keeps directing me to an error page. I also abandoned the mobile site and went to the full site… The same thing happened. Any ideas?

I'm having the same problem... broken shopping cart. Somehow I managed to add these glasses to my cart, but I can't add any Plus offer items to my cart. They time out.

I'm trying to buy a couple sets of the sellout woot blanket and 2 pillows but every time I try to add one to my cart, I get sent to an error page. Grrrr!
Also, same things happening when I try to buy the wine woot wine glasses. I've spent an hour on this now... I can't get woot support anywhere

What's going on here???? Why won't it let me order these? I click add to cart and it just spins, nothing happens. I tried Woot Support and it just comes back with an error too, every time. I have been patient, trying for over an hour but there isn't much time left. Did Woot crash?

I don't own this set, but given they're made of very thin glass, they will not handle temperature changes very well. Be very careful about pouring hot/cold beverages into them. Pouring boiling hot tea directly into it is asking for trouble. Start by gently warming/cooling the glass under warm/cold tap water, and don't scoop ice with them. Do not microwave. Once warmed up, these should accept hot liquids just fine. The handwashing requirement is probably about water getting forced in between the layers of glass when using a dishwasher, although I can tell you from experience pouring cold liquid into a thin glass just out of the hot dishwasher WILL shatter it.

I found these on Sears' website, they mention keeping cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot. I think you should be ok with hot beverages. I personally have some double-walled glassware, and I love them for hot/cold drinks because it keeps the temperature away from my hands.
