You have a friend who is clumsy enough to break wine glasses so you always want to keep a set of inexpensive wine glass in your wine bar so that you don’t lose the expensive ones.
Also all wine lovers cannot afford very high priced glasses. But they intend to drink and serve wine in suitable glasses. For them there are many inexpensive wine glasses available in at the market. It’s not that if they are cheap, not suitable or they ones bought in sale. In fact, they are the ones that compliment the wine as well. They come in various range from $ 1 plastic ones to good enough for $10.
Many stores offer inexpensive glasses in their store, but one has to consider a few things before buying them. First make sure that the wine glasses you are about to choose have a little heft to it. That is basically take out the wine glass from the box and see that they are not too light and the rim should not be paper thin. The reason is that very thin glasses will break in just one knock, even if it accidentally gets touched.
Another thing to consider is malformation. If you find that there are bubbles in the stem or bowl portion of the glass never buy them as that indicates that the glass is weak and can break any time. Always go for all purpose wine glasses as they compliment both red and white wine and you need not to use separate glasses for them.
Sometimes we feel that it’s good to buy cheap glasses. Always think in relative terms because if you buy a cheap variety but one that breaks very frequently, you end up buying a new set again and again which will increase your cost. Hence, if you are buying an inexpensive one do it only if they are strong.
