I love using glass at home. We have plastic cups for the kids, but for the adults, we go head first into purchasing glass products. Since having children, I’ve realized that our glasses have to have more than one function. We just don’t have the space to house a glass for every occasion.
Enter Moderna by Ozeri.
I received these awesome glasses in exchange for an honest review and I couldn’t be happier. Above the other glasses in our cabinet, these are the first ones we turn to. Unfortunately, we only have four of them.
Made of durable, heat-resistant, mouth-blown borosilicate glass, these 8 ounce glasses are the finest quality. Moderna‘s double wall design keeps your hands comfortable even though you may have the coldest of cold or the hottest of hot drinks inside. The two opposing dimples make for a natural and effortless grip, which is great for hot coffee as well as ice cream and everything in between.
No condensation. With children, sometimes we end up putting down our glasses in the worst places if we need to take care of the kids. Paper and wood alike has been scared by the lingering condensation. These Moderna glasses have kept tables and paper dry alike.
Keeps cold drinks cold. Another side-effect of having children is that you may not be able to drink your drink relatively after you poured it. Instead of watering it down with another ice cube, Moderna keeps your drink cold for an extended amount of time. After an hour, the iced drink and the ice cream was still cold, while the non-Moderna glass had completely melted the ice.
Comfortable grip. The handcrafted thumb grips make holding the glass comfortable in any position. I actually love the way that you have little indentations for your fingers. They fit much more comfortably in your hands.
Oven safe. I don’t bake often enough to try this out with a baked good, but I did put it in the oven for a full hour while I cooked something else. It handled a full hour very well, but after about 10 minutes you could handle the exterior of the glass while the water was smoking hot! I can foresee some great individual cakes being made.
Microwave safe. I was honestly afraid to put a glass in the microwave, that’s not really my deal. But I had to give it a try. What’s a good review without trying out their facts? I turned it on for about two minutes for it to come out the other side safely.
Freezer safe. After I conducted my little experiment with the ice cream, I didn’t actually want to eat it, at least not then. Thus, back in the freezer it went. A couple of hours later, the ice cream was frozen solid. After a little bit, you could comfortably hold the exterior and eat the ice cream.
Not dishwasher safe. According to the directions, they prefer for you not to put them in the dishwasher. I use the dishwasher as my special helper. I don’t like this at all.
The only thing that I didn’t like was that it was not dishwasher safe. I think I can deal with that for four glasses at a time. Since you can bake and prep desserts in these glasses, I think these are great for any holiday season event.
