So, here’s the truth; April’s review and our personal conversation led me to want to try Ozeri Serafino 16-ounce Glasses, which I received for free in exchange for my honest opinion. Just to let you know, the links herein are Amazon links ~ doesn’t cost you more, but gives us a few cents to keep this blog going! 🙂
I have two young daughters that my mother is trying to train to drink out of real glasses. She has a personal dislike (and vendetta, in my opinion) against plastic drinking cups. She doesn’t care how cute the characters on them are. She has bought the 8 ounce mason jars with the handles as starter glasses for them.
The adults, however, spare no expense for ourselves and we buy what we like. I liked what I heard about these double wall thermos glasses and wanted to give them a try. If they turned out to be as shatter-resistant and versatile as I heard, I will have hit a gold mine.
I received the Ozeri Serafino 16-ounce Glasses that came 2 per box. As I unwrapped the first one, I like the way it felt in my hand. The center on the length of the glass had a smaller diameter that the rest of the glass and was indented for fingers to securely hold it in place and made it easy to handle. I also noticed the shine on them that Ozeri boasts it will never lose.
In order to try all the things that are claimed in the description on the box, I had to use this glass for all my daily occasions. I started with coffee. The glass held up well. The glass only became warm to the touch but not hot (closer to the top) after the coffee had sat in it for what I timed to be 10 minutes. The coffee also stayed very warm until the very last drop. This is something that does not happen in my regular coffee mug.
For my usual mid-morning pick me up, I made my after work out frozen smoothie and poured it into the glass. Again, after about 10 minutes or so the glass was cool to the touch but not cold. I did not drink it. My daughters’ school had called and I had actually forgotten about it. When I discovered it still sitting where I had left it an hour later, guess what….it was still really cold. The ice had melted, of course, but the drink was still REALLY cold.
Next, I made a cup of tea. I put a tea bag in the glass, added some water and put it in the microwave for 90 seconds. I checked on the tea and I did not see steam so back in it went for another 45 seconds. I tested the glass before completely grabbing it and Voilà! I was able to pull it out with my bare hands. I ran the same test as with the frozen drink and left the glass on the counter. As with all the other uses, the outside temperature did warm some after 10 minutes or so. Now get this, 4 hours later, the tea was still very warm; not hot, but VERY warm.
The last test was to put it in the dishwasher. Ozeri says it can be done but to be careful about letting it bang around with other items at high temperatures. I treated as any other one of my glasses. It is still shiny and in one piece.
I do want to add that I have even dropped it one….nada. Not a scratch on it. In my opinion, these Ozeri Serafino 16-ounce Glasses are worth every penny.
