Tesco high ball glasses
When moving house and starting with nothing i decided to put in quite a large order at tesco, www.tesco.com. the products are also available at the larger tesco stores but given that delivery was free to my very close local tesco store i decided to save myself the harassment of fighting my way through the shop.
The glasses came in a pack of 4, neatly packaged in cardboard. Once I got them out I gave them the usual wash and then started to use them immediately.
They are the typical high ball style, being slightly wider and rounder towards the bottom and narrower towards the top. They are 14.5 cm tall which is a good height and with the 500 ml capacity they certainly hold enough liquid for a drink. At their widest they are about 6.5 cm so nice and comfortable to hold. I don't like glasses which feel too heavy and thick but these feel and look quite chunky without being overly heavy or cumbersome. The rim of the glasses are comfortable to drink from being neither too thick o r too thin. This means that they don't hurt my mouth when I have a drink because I have had glasses in the past which are way too thin at the rim and almost sharp.
The glasses are dishwasher safe but as with most glasses if not all, they are not oven or microwave safe.
The pack of 4 glasses cost the princely sum of £3.25 so they certainly won't break the bank, and its not a major travesty if one breaks.
These glasses are definitely everyday glasses especially since they aren't expensive and can take a lot of wear and tear. The usual care has to be taken when washing them but they do wash successfully in the dishwasher.
As well as using them on a daily basis I also use them when I have people round and find they are a good size for adults and children to use. We can get a good spirit and mixer drink with ice in these and for children they hold a good quantity of juice and are chunky enough so that I don't worry about the glasses smashing in their hands!
Before the price and quality I would definitely recommend these. Given that they are lasting well with only one breakage so far ( my fault) I think I will buy a couple more packs of these so that I always have plenty of matching glasses.
Thanks for reading
