I got these cups to go with the French press coffee maker I purchased for my daughter. She absolutely loves them. They are very good looking and the glass is weighty. (not thin or brittle). She uses both the press & the mugs everyday and has not had a problem. Christmas is coming and I think I'll get 2 more sets of these mugs for her, then she can throw away the miss matched mugs she is currently using. Thank you Overstock for having good quality merchandise and unbelieveble prices!
