TASSIMO Bormioli Mugs
NOT hand-blown in Italy
I just received these glasses in my order and in fact they are not hand-blown in Italy as stated on the website, they were made in China. I will be returning them for a full refund.

READ ME! Truly amazing product!
When it comes to hot beverage reusable container options, there are not many. A traditional mug (handle), a mug with a silicone ring, or this fantastic glass within a glass method. Mugs with handles are difficult for me to hold comfortably because I'm one of those guys with bigger hands. So, I ordered the Tassimo mugs with the silicone band (I ordered the blue ones because it's my girlfriend's favorite color). They are awesome, but it is a pain removing the silicone band and cleaning behind it each and every time. Then I found these. Winner! It is easy to hold, easy to clean, and stays cool even when holding a piping hot beverage. We love, love, love these glass mugs!!!
* I noticed that some reviews were warning about glass breakage. To accomplish the design, the glass is a little thinner. Does this mean they break by simply flicking them with a finger like some try to claim? Absolutely not! I did just that as a test, clinked them together (not super hard of course), squeezed them in my hands, and even tried to press the bottom of the inner glass out towards the outer glass. None of these tests made me feel as though they were going to break. I hand wash nice items like this because I don't want the dishwasher to etch the glass. But, they are dishwasher and microwave safe.

I absolutely recommend these mugs!
I love these, and here is why:
1) My drink looks beautiful. I'm a latte and coffee "drink" person and love the look of the drink in this clear mug.
2# These mugs do keep the heat in the drink and out of your hand.
3) These mugs AREN'T too thin. I read several reviews describing the mugs as thin and breakable, but that isn't my experience at all. The thickness of this mug is between a fine red wine glass and a fine porcelain mug. I have had no problem with breakage whatsoever and use these mugs every day. They have also done well in the dishwasher #top tray.#
I'm going to buy another set so I don't have to wash them so often!

Look great but very fragile
Got these and loved their looks, but they're glass, and very thin glass at that. They both broke within a month. I'd love them if they were more robust.
