Bodum has solved pretty much every problem a tea or coffee drinker could have while sipping a mug of their favorite beverage. We may never get to experience a never-ending mug of tea (a sipper’s dream), but a cup that keeps contents hot without burning your hands is a modern-day miracle.
Made of transparent, heat-resistant borosilicate glass, these insulated inventions contain two mugs in one: an outer layer of glass keeps the mug cool to the touch while an inner layer keeps liquid hot for what seems like forever. Each mug is mouth-blown by artisans, resulting in a delicate, sophisticated design. Despite their frail look, these glasses are quite sturdy. In addition to being microwave- and dishwasher-safe, they passed our unintentional in-office tests: setting them down hard on a wooden desk, banging them into the refrigerator and knocking them against doorways (these things happen when you need caffeine). In addition to hot beverages, the Bodum Bistro Double Wall glasses also works for iced tea and other cold drinks, keeping the heat from your hand away from the chilly contents.
