TASSIMO Bormioli Mugs
Drink More Cappuccino!
I love these glasses and have already ordered a second pair! The drinks are visually appealing and even seem to taste better- my cappuccino comsumption has certainly increased with the purchase of these glasses. I love the double-wall design and the elegant appearance. I don't think that they are more fragile than any other piece of glassware- be careful and you'll have no problems.
I do find that they are a wee bit too tall for the brewer as the foam sometimes reaches the spout, but if I take the drip tray out, there is a lot of splatter from the foaming milk. A simple solution is to use a scrap of 2x4 to lift the glass up enough to limit the mess. Also, they are hand blown in China for an Italian company, not made in Italy themselves.

Although other reviewers have noted the glass is thinner than expected, to be fair, at this price point, do they expect crystal? (I recently spent 30 bucks on one crystal wine glass, and it was thin, as well!).
They nicely serve the purpose of containing my latte creations (well, the machines' creations, though I doctor mine with white chocolate syrup!). As well, the insulating property works very well, keeping the drink hot longer.
Of course, you should be careful with them, but that applies to all glassware.

Oh I absolutely love these glasses! They are elegant, durable, and usable for any occasion. The double wall prevents your hands from getting warm, no matter the temperature of the beverage! Deffinetly recommend for every kitchen!

I love them
I think these are great. Yes, they are a bit more fragile then other glasses I have but no more then my nice set of china. They take to the dishwasher just fine, but you can't casually toss them in like other glasses. These are unique and beautiful glasses and with a touch more care, they will make a great addition. I love mine and use them every day.
