Double-Walled Glass Bowl


I guess it was only a matter of time before the double-walled thing spread from beverage glasses out into the greater dining space.

From the website:

    Glass Bowl (double-wall)

    Keeps food chilled longer, eliminates condensation

    Double-wall glass bowl by Bodum® works like this: air between the two layers of glass insulates the outside from temperatures within.

    The result is that ice, cold salads, ice cream and other chilled foods stay that way a whole lot longer, even throughout a buffet dinner.

    Bowl can even be placed on a table without worry of water stains from condensation.


    Measures 6" dia.

$14.95 (scrumptious-looking biscotti and ice cream not included).

Is it wrong that I feel sorry for the air trapped between the glass?

because I do.

Poor lonely air.

Thank you for the warning, sb. I was all set to order some of these, but not now. Nothing extremely fragile is going to survive for long around here. I'd probably be slurping happily along, clutch the bowl overly hard in my big gluttonous mitt, and, in my zeal, miss the "pop" and continue right on eating and chewing chunks of glass, oblivious. Oh well, eating with and out of one's fingers is highly underrated. But I sure would like to order some of the biscotti and ice cream. Yum. "Finger ice cream," a new concept!

I have now shattered all of my beloved Bodum double walled iced tea glasses...

These things are FRAGILE. Like the tips of lab pipettes. All 4 fell to the same tragedy...ice cubes...even gently released..."pop" -- the bottom of the glass breaks like an egg shell...sounds like an xmas tree bulb breaking on a rug...

This great concept needs 2x glass thickness...until then, I abstain from further purchases...
