These champagne flutes look classy and elegant (which really is what crystal is for, right?). The stems and walls are very thin but seem strong and I've put the glasses in my dishwasher no problem. I like the weight and balance as well, the solid base makes it feel like they aren't going to get knocked over TOO easily despite their tall, skinny proportions. Overall a great purchase!
These glasses are really beautiful and everything they were supposed to be. I bought them to replace some Murano glasses which were accidentally broken and the Bormioli product is every bit as good, for considerably less money. It is nice to see elegant champagne flutes back in the cabinent and I expect these glasses to be with me for years. My major concern was with transport as the delivery involved thousands of miles. I needn't have worried; the glasses arrived intact and within around 6 days. They have been used for normal wine as well as champagne and proved to be excellent, capturing the bouquet and allowing very clear inspection of the colour. Overstock are to be commended on an efficient operation and I would certainly deal with them again.
The champagne flutes are elegantly shaped, delicate without being too fragile, and they have a nice glass clinking sound when one toasts with them. They are a bit larger than regular glasses, but we liked them well and will be getting more. And for this price, they are pretty much without comparison!
I bought these as a gift for my picky wine aficionado husband. He loves them! They're elegant, well balanced with a nice wide base so less likely to knock over, and have a beautiful chime when toasting. Also great that they have no lead.
I'm pretty picky with champagne flutes and wine glasses and prefer really thin glass/crystal. These are pretty thin, but not quite as high quality as I had hoped (if you hold them up to the light, you can see some distortions in the glass). I think most people would be pretty happy with these, though, and they are a good deal for the money.
Matches description perfectly. Tall glasses, very elegant. You would bet money on the fact that they are crystal. Dishwasher safe. Very pleased with these. We also purchased 2 sizes of wine glasses by the same manufacturer. Great purchase.
just got them today, but i love these glasses! They look elegant but not like they'll break at a moment's notice. Hope they last.. I llove the look

My first impression upon opening these was, "Ugh. They look cheap." Too lazy to send them back and find something else, I kept them and have used them a fair amount since. They've been bashed around and one was dropped with no breakage. This really is some kind of special tough glass. The thin, expensive ones would have broken from the treatment these have been given. Another thing that is nice about them is that they have thin, sheared rims. What looks cheap about them is that below the rim the glass gets considerably thicker. When you look through them, your view is warbled and uneven, like looking through an ancient window. Given their durability I would recommend them with the caveat that you won't want to use them for the most formal or upscale occasions.

I'm a big champagne drinker, so these glasses are simply too big...I drink too much! Pros: dishwasher safe - yahoo! Fair quality for price. Large bowl holds enough champagne so we don't have to get up to refill so often. Of course, arrived prompt and well packed - Overstock is a shipping expert. Cons: oversized bowl and short stem makes them less elegant. The glass is thicker/cheaper feeling than I expected from the description. Large bowl holds enough champagne that we don't get to pace ourselves;) In summary: I like them enough not to return them but not so much that I wish I'd kept shopping for a better product.

I bought two sets of these flutes to replace a set I'd had for many years. They are very nice and of good quality for the money. They look elegant. I hand wash them versus placing in the dishwasher. I would definitely recommend them.
