Give your espresso the gift of Bodum Bistro glasses. This double wall insulated glassware not only keeps your espresso hot, but also keeps your hands from getting burnt. The secret lies in the "dead air" space between the inner and outer layers of glass which prevents heat from escaping. Ask any of the espresso lovers out there, and they will tell you how quickly even a perfect shot of espresso loses its flavor as it cools. As an added bonus, the beautiful mouth-blown glass allows you to fully appreciate your espresso as you watch the cascading layer of crema while you brew. Dishwasher and microwave safe. 4.7 ounces. Set of 2 glasses with handles.
Bodum's insulated glassware is made from durable Borosilicate glass. Borosilicate glass is a strong heat-resistant glass that weighs less than traditional glassware. Used to make scientific lab glass, borosilicate glass (medical grade glass) is stronger than traditional "soda-lime" glass and can be used for everything from drinkware to cookware. Borosilicate glass substitutes boron oxide in place of the soda and lime used in traditional glassware. The boron oxide acts as a glue holding the silicate together and due to the small size of boron particles, the glass is held together tighter, resulting in a stronger glass. Some customers may perceive the glass to be "thin" as they hold it. It is important to explain the difference between borosilicate and soda lime glass. Borosilicate glass doesn't need to be as thick as traditional glass to be just as strong. Borosilicate is simply a different type of glass that is resistant to temperature swings and scratching. Because the particles are held together so tightly, borosilicate glass is dishwasher safe and will not become cloudy over time; you can rest assured that after 100 cycles, the glass will be as clear as the day you bought it. Simply treat it as you would any glass product and it will stand up to everyday use. Dishwasher and microwave safe. Bodum insulated, double wall glass is handmade by expert artisans. Because this glass is mouth-blown, each one may have slight differences in height, thickness and weight. Please use care when placing ice into the glass to avoid fracturing the inner layer. We suggest placing the liquid first and then the ice. Please also avoid using metal spoons or placing the glass into a crowded dishwasher. These glasses will help to keep hot drinks warmer and cool drinks cooler. For best results retaining heat, pre-heat the glass before use.
