Bodum’s Canteen Thermo glasses are a contemporary classic that stay cool in your hand whilst holding hot drinks. Their breakthrough double wall glass construction makes it so. Their classic straight sided design means they’re a really lovely glass for teas and hot coloured infusions.
With cold drinks, your hand doesn’t warm up the fluid, and ice blocks take much longer to melt and dilute your drink. The Bodum Thermo Glass leaves no glass ring on the table, either, because the double wall prevents condensation. Its made from medical grade Borosilicate lab glass which doesn’t need to be as thick as traditional soda-lime glass. The Bodum Thermo Glass also resists scratching and doesn’t go cloudy.
Bodum was the original company with double walled drinking glasses. There are now abundant nasty copies, but still Bodum glasses are the ones to perfect the important little silicone vent at the bottom – this lets in air, not water, and equalises air pressure to enhance durability. It’s the difference between inner and outer surface temperatures that can frequently cause glass to crack.
