If there was one word that could describe me in a heartbeat that would be: KLUTZ! I am the most uncoordinated, clumsy girl in the world. I trip over objects I see (toys, toys and more toys!), objects I didn’t sen (usually my daughter standing at my feet) and occasionally my own feet! Having Celiac disease doesn’t improve this ‘talent’. A couple months before I was diagnosed with Celiac disease I noticed I had the ‘dropsies!’ One minute I would be holding a Timmy Horton’s coffee savoring every sip and the next minute I’d be crying because I dropped the entire cup on the floor! My parent’s began to worry that maybe there was something seriously wrong. I found out after being diagnosed with celiac disease that if you have the disease and ingest gluten you can develop Gluten Ataxia. The gluten protein literally attacks and damages the part of their brains responsible for motor resulting in unstable balance and gait, dropping things, knocking things over and a hard time focusing (Here I was blaming it on baby brain and lack of sleep! oops!). As you can imagine, I lost many glasses and plates during that period of time. When I had the opportunity to review Serfanio Artisan Series 8oz Double Wall Glasses SHATTER PROOF GLASS from Ozeri I was thrilled!

A drinking glass is a glass is a glass! RIGHT? I mean how many different ways can you make a quality drinking glass? The features of it being shatter resistant (thanks to my Gluten Ataxia) and ability to handle hot and cold beverages peaked my curiosity. My first impression of the glasses was how well packaged they were. The glasses were separated into their own section, positioned in place with bubble wrap and was surround by more cardboard. Your probably could have dropped these glasses out of a second story window and they weren’t going to break!
The first thing I noticed about the glasses was the comfort grip. They feature ‘two opposing mouth-blown dimples’ which allow the glass to fit comfortably in your hand. The ridges all allow you to achieve a better grip in case the kids decided to run circles around you! The glass was smooth and had no signs of imperfections at all. I love that its fancy enough for a dinner party (i.e. a Dessert hot chocolate), yet it can easily be use at a casual family dinner (More likely in my case!)
The second thing I noticed was the double lining. It look interesting but I’ve attempted to placed hot liquids in other glass cups that ‘were made for hot liquids’ and ended up burning my hands. I wasn’t convinced that the space between the inner and outer glass would provide enough of a barrier to keep my hand safe. Surprising, it was 100% accurate. I was able to pour hot water from my Keurig into the glass and it pick it up with no ill effects. I attempted the same thing with iced soda from the fridge with the addition of an ice cube. I hate picking up a cold drink and have it become all ‘sweaty’ on the outside. This cup allowed my drink to my cold soda ice cold without transferring the cold or condensation to my hand.
My favourite part of the glass is that its shatter resistant property. Fortunately, I haven’t had opportunity to test this feature out, but being a Mom of three young children and a dog, broken glass shattered all over the floor can be a nightmare! Trust me I’ve been there once or 100 times!
