The Bodum Canteen double wall shot/espresso glass is 3 ounces in size and can be used for cold or warm beverages. Its unique design is appealing to the eye when filled with your favorite beverage. With its double layer of borosilicate glass it appears as though the liquid is 'floating' within the glass. They will not sweat when filled with a cold beverage, so you will not have to use a coaster. The double wall creates a thermal effect, helping to keep your cold drinks cold and your hot drinks hot for longer periods of time. These mouth blown glasses are an exciting product for any home, restaurant, and cafe and are a definite conversation piece. The double wall also makes for a nice votive candle holder, eliminating wax spills and the need for a coaster.
What's not to love? These handsome glasses combine great looks with insulating temperature control qualities and anti-condensation protection to boot. Keep your espresso piping hot in the morning and your sake cool in the evening with this set of two shot/espresso glasses, each 3 inches tall and holding 3 ounces of your favorite beverages. These glasses, like all Bodum Canteen glasses, are hand made and mouth blown, and cleverly feature a two glass walls, trapping air between the walls to provide insulation, keeping hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. As an added bonus, the dual layers prevent condensation accumulating on the outside of cold drinks and dripping onto your wood tables.
The design is not only functional but adds a striking visual aspect to the containers also: beverages seem to float within the glass due to the double-walled design. This visual appeal is enhanced because the outer layer is shaped like a traditional shot glass, while the inner layer has a more tapered profile. Made of borosilicate glass, the set is dishwasher safe. The design has won several awards and rave reviews, notably the European iF Design Award. Match with any Bodum Canteen glassware, or coordinate with Bodum's other double-walled insulated glassware patterns, Pavina and Assam. --Jeff Dalto
Editor's Note: Because each glass is mouth-blown, each one may have slight differences in height, thickness, and weight. Bodum recommends using care when placing ice into the glass to avoid fracturing the inner layer. You should also avoid using metal spoons or placing the glass into a crowded dishwasher.
