Most helpful critical review
There are much better alternatives by far
on 23 November 2012
I bought this product roughly a month ago and definitely wouldn't recommend it to a friend (whom i like at least). I already have several dual glass cups that I am completely satisfied with (that cost 3.5£ per unit). I just bought this because of a bit larger size and the fine strainer. Having paid about 6 times more and buying from well-known brand i expected quality to be impeccable.
So here is why i feel disappointed
1. It suppose to be dishwasher safe however it cracked after the second wash. Never happened with any other dual-glass cups that i had (even though I washed them many more times).
2. It has a rubber stick at the bottom that seems to be plugging the hole. I am not really sure what is the purpose of the hole and the rubber but again compared with my previous purchases i prefer cups without it.
3. This point is partly my fault. I bought the cup looking at the picture where the strainer is black as for the same product in other colours the photos coincide with the description. This one does not. So make sure to pay attention to the description.
4. The last minor issue is that the strainer plastic quality could have been better quality in my opinion.
Without the cons above the cup serves the purpose while it lasts. Strainer holes are small enough to stop even really fine tea leaves getting into your tea.
However, in case you still have an urge to get rid of your money and decide to go forward with the purchase i would strongly recommend avoiding dishwasher with this cup.
Also, if you are interested the good dual glass cups that i keep mentioning in my review came from creamsupplies website.
