good water glassesFeb 19, 2007
By Matt O
I bought these to go with my Riedel Vinum wine glasses because the Vinum water glass is just too small to be useful. These are just right for a water glass, nice big bowl and a short stem. They have the same cut edge as the Vinum glasses, and you really wouldn't know that they're not crystal by looking at these and the Vinum side-by-side. Note: the box they come in isn't very strong, and the glasses can break in shipping. Amazon replaced my broken glasses with no questions.

A discount on beveragesJan 14, 2009
Over the years I have had several sets of wine and water glasses. I've treasured the Waterford due to the craftsmanship and cost. But the Riedel glasses add an elegance to the table by virtue of their shape. The thinner lip and specific shape adds to the enjoyment of each type of wine, even beer and water. The only drawback is that the thin glass is more prone to breakage. Gently hand wash these. 5 stars for more formal times; 4 for every day use.

Water GlassJul 04, 2007
By C. Walls
This is a good product. Dishwasher safe. Only thing I would change would be to make the glass just a little bit smaller and shorter. As it is, it probably would not fit in all dishwashers.

Excellent for beerJun 20, 2009
When we drink beer from a small-rimmed glass or straight from a can or bottle, we miss one of beer's great pleasures - the aroma! In that respect, these glasses fulfill the same function as well-designed wine glasses - allowing the "nose" to spread in the air in the glass above the liquid. That adds a whole new dimension to enjoying a brew. These glasses are plenty big enough. They're not designed to be filled to the brim. A healthy pour from an ordinary bottle or can will build a good head and provide enough room for vaporization. Truly, it raises the flavor profile to a new dimension.
Considering that they're very thin glass, these glasses are durable enough for everyday use if you don't bang them around with abandon. My original set of four lasted about six years before the last one cracked - not bad considering that they were washed in the dishwasher and, before use, put into the freezer for a few minutes to ice them. If you're seriously devoted to enjoying a great beer, these glasses are worth every penny, and make a very thoughtful gift for your beer-drinking friends. (A sure way to become my friend - send me some more Riedel beer glasses!)
Lovely and versatileJan 07, 2013
I love these glasses. They are terrific water glasses that make a dinner table look very elegant. In addition, they are nice glasses to serve just abut anything from beer to iced tea. They are finely made and require hand washing. Would recommend these glasses and this brand. Simple and elegant. Casual or formal.
