- good size
- nice shape
- hand blown (don't know how they pull that off)
- new vent in the bottom to equalize air pressue
- strong but not as bulletproof as an old fashioned ceramic mug
They have a new version out w/silicone vents in the bottom to reduce cracking. I have a set of the original ones w/out the vent and have had no issues w/cracking. I use them for coffee mainly but occasionally with scotch (random I know) on the rocks. So the old ones have handled hot and cold drinks w/no problems for me...but maybe others had issues and that's why Bodum redesigned them - I dunno.
Regardless, the new ones with the vent are still dishwasher safe and sit flat still even w/the vent. Well worth the cost as long as you don't bang them around...and don't drop ice cubes in from high up either...put them in normally/more gently and you will be fine.
These do keep the beverage hot (or cold) longer than a regular glass would...that being said, they can't compete with the insulation properties of a double walled stainless steel vacuum thermos deal but that's not what they are meant for so no worries. Get a travel mug (stainless king by thermos is best) if you want one of those.
