Rated 5 out of 5┬áby kelbel134 I read warning labels; therefore I LOVE THESE
Everyone keeps complaining about how the warning wasn't warning enough. One reviewer even said she took off the warning stickers on the bottom of the glass without looking at it. Well, if you do something like that you cannot be upset when the item breaks. No, these mugs are NOT INTENDED FOR HOT LIQUIDS. It says so on the warning label on the bottom of the mug. If you read something like that, why would you chance it by putting a hot liquid in?! I use my mugs for cold or room temperature drinks and I adore them. They are absolutely beautiful and I get lots of compliments. I have 3 green and 3 turquoise. I HAND WASH my mugs because I don't want to chance them breaking in the dishwasher. I wash my dishes on high heat and use the heat dry cycle. I highly recommend these mugs to anyone who won't complain that they're not a coffee mug.

Rated 1 out of 5┬áby Shannel Beautiful but not practical
These mugs are gorgeous. However, I had the same experience that a previous reviewer had. I had a hot beverage in the mug and the bottom fell off spilling my drink all over the place. I did note the sticker on the bottom that said "not recommended for hot beverages" but I figured it was because the mug is glass and might get hot to the touch. The sticker should say, "do not use with hot beverages" because that is the reality. I see that they're called punch mugs but in the store you don't know that and well, they look like a coffee mug and are part of their current winter inventory so... it's misleading. I'm bummed, I thought they were my perfect Christmas mugs.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby pandaskis So beautiful, but one cracked
I bought two of these in a local store this weekend, in clear. They are just soo beautiful and classy, I feel very elegant drinking my morning coffee out of them! Two things to note: the quality can vary from mug to mug, I guess because they are handmade. The handle on one of my mugs has a jagged edge of glass and is also bent back kind of oddly. And then the other thing... after only using the other mug once, it has a huge crack in it. I didn't bang it around or anything. I poured my coffee in this morning and suddenly coffee was leaking out everywhere. So I'm going to try to take it back.. but I love the mug so much that I'll still get a replacement.
