Upkeep and usage
Please take care when placing ice into the glass and when using metal spoons to avoid fracturing the inner layer. We suggest placing the liquid first and then the ice.
Please note that you will find a small air-hole at the bottom of the double walled glass. This is not a flaw but a safety measurement, put in place to control the air pressure between walls. Simply rinse with hot water and avoid using the dishwasher. Clean the bottom gently, avoid brush, otherwise, there might be some water trapped inside the hole and fog up between the two walls.
If the ambient temperature in the kitchen is low, warming up the glasses before use will help the glasses last longer.
The glass is less likely to break or shatter if you warm it up gradually. Once you have poured in the hot tea, avoid resting the glass on cold surfaces.
Our insulated double walled glasses are handmade by expert artisans. Because this glass is mouth-blown, each one may have slight differences in height, thickness & weight.
