Update: I was loading the dishwasher and accidentally barely touched the Zwiesel. I heard the "chink", but had to look very closely to see the chip. I think it is the nature of tempered glass or crystal that you need to be careful not to hit the edges with a hard object. Other than my carelessness these glasses have proved very durable. I'll order replacements.
4-3-17 Update: Yep, another chip on the lip. Not sharp, may have been there from the start.
I have some beautiful leaded Waterford crystal. But, call me nervous, there are too many posts warning about the fact that the leaded crystal may leach lead into an alcohol drink if it is stored for a long time. Granted, a drink in a glass is not stored on a shelf for a week, but even a small amount of time will allow for some lead leaching into the drink. And, why take the chance if there is an alternative.
So,, after doing a fair amount of research, I found many options. The problem is that many of the non leaded glasses are poorly made. The bottom of the glass typically has the weight from the thickness of the poured glass. And for some reason,, the cheaper glasses have imperfect bottoms. I looked at about five different types in the local stores, and the inconsistency as amazing. Check it yourself, the glass bottoms are uneven, one side is higher than the other, or there is a height difference between the exact same model in two glasses.
When I saw the Zwiesel, I read good reviews. I like the look of cut crystal and they are the only ones that appear to be cut, not molded. The cheaper non leaded Waterford crystal looks molded and not as nice as their cut crystal that is leaded.
These are great. They came in perfect condition. Well made, perfect weight, and a great size.
Other's have noted the edge is somewhat thin. I don't believe this is an issue and find the size and quality of the thickness just what I prefer.
So,, if you want a non-leaded cut glass crystal, that looks like crystal, and has an great stylish appearance, get these.
