The humble glass tumbler is a kitchen workhorse. While it’s probably the glass you use the most, from breakfast juice to afternoon iced coffee, it’s barely given a second thought. Ironically, the elegance of say, the wine glass, practically inspires poetry despite their specialized purpose. But, according to Half Full Editor Noah Rothbaum you can have both form and function. “A stylish set of tumblers is more than worth the investment, since you use them every day and they can last for years.” To help you find the perfect ones, we asked him to help us compile a list of great glass tumblers.
FOR A TUMBLER AND CARAFE SET
Kosta Boda 3 Piece Set
These simple, yet elegant tumblers are one of Half Full Editor Noah Rothbaum’s favorites. They’re great for water, juice, and beer. This set comes with two tumblers and a matching carafe that will fit easily in your fridge.
FOR A BIG SET OF TUMBLERS
Libbey Polaris Tumbler and Rocks Glass
FOR RITZY TUMBLERS
Baccarat Crystal 4 Elements Tumbler
If you’re a fan of the finer things in life, you’ll like these Baccarat Crystal Tumblers. Another pick of Half Full Editor Noah Rothbaum, these are used exclusively at the Baccarat Hotel in New York, and are inspired by the four elements: water, air, earth and fire.
FOR MINIMALIST TUMBLERS
Bormioli Bodega Collection
These glasses are super minimal and really make whatever you’re drinking take center stage. Each glass in this 12-piece set can hold 12 ounces of liquid and has a thick sturdy base despite an overall minimal design.
FOR AQUA TUMBLERS
Littala Aino Alto Glass Tumbler
These “water green” tumblers are a twist on a classic that Half Full Editor Noah Rothbaum loves. They can hold 11 ounces of liquid and were created by famous Scandanavian designer Aino Aalto.
FOR STACKABLE TUMBLERS
Five Two Stackable Glassware
We at Scouted love the entire Five Two line, and these stackable tumblers can’t be missed. They have a slightly tapered shape and have vintage inspired lines at the top that add a touch of nostalgia to whatever you’re drinking.
FOR DOUBLE WALLED TUMBLERS
Bodum Assam Double Wall Tumbler
Half Full Editor Noah Rothbaum likes the double-walled Bodum Assam Tumblers. The contemporary design really showcases the beverage, and they were created to maintain the temperature of a drink. No matter if you’re enjoying a hot or cold drink, the brand designed the glass to maintain its temperature.
FOR BREAK RESISTANT TUMBLERS
Duralex Picardie Tumbler
The original French tumbler made by the company that invented tempered glass, this is a kitchen staple. Duralex glass is two times more resistant to breaking than normal glass, and the rivulets around it aren’t just stylish but are great for gripping, too
