Best Overall Stemless Wine Glass
These are thin and lightweight glasses that hold up to 15 ounces of wine and do well in the washing machine. The price is reasonable and you can choose between pack sizes.
Unfortunately, some users believe these break too easily (so always open and check before giving as a gift). And, they are a one-size-fits-all which isn’t something sommeliers are in love with.
Despite being rather thin and lightweight, these stemless wine glasses are remarkably sturdy. These glasses do a fantastic job of maintaining wine temperature, which is perhaps the reason we’ve put them as our top fave. For glass, they are remarkably shatter-resistant – as long as they arrive in good knick (which most do). That’s in large part due to their design which takes advantage of a wide middle and large, flat bottom.
If we had to list a drawback after testing, it would be that these glasses claim to work for both red and white wines, but they’re definitely more appropriate for red wines. If that’s what you prefer, then these are the wine glasses for you.
Red or white? It sort of depends on your preference. It’s a one-size-fits-all sort of a glass. While the folks at Royal claim these glasses are appropriate for red, white, rosé, or anything else you may want to put into them, we believe they are definitely best for red wine.
What are they made of? It’s high-quality, shatter-resistant glass…but, that definitely doesn’t make them unbreakable. A few users report their glasses being too thin. As long as they arrive in good condition, you shouldn’t experience the breakage issues you do with stemmed glasses.
How big are they? Each glass holds about 15 ounces of wine – and they weigh around 6 ounces a piece. The wide bowl tapers at the top to 2.75”.
Dishwasher-safe? Yes! But only in the top rack! Now, hand washing is usually better for your wine glasses, but these do very well in the dish washer.
Any options? You can choose between red or white wine glasses. There are also 4-packs and 8-packs. But, don’t expect much more than that.
How much for a set? About $12
And that’s how many glasses? 4
So, the cost per glass is? About $3. That’s not the cheapest, but it’s hardly the most expensive either. All in, we think that’s a fair price. If you went in for an 8-pack, each one would cost about $2.50.
