Seriously, can a red wine glass possibly be too big?

Duraclear Wine Glasses
Polycarbonate (a common trade name is Lexan™) is one of many polymers which are commonly known as "plastic"... so the DuraClear® glasses are plastic, and I don't see anything wrong with that. Another brand mentioned in that thread are made of acrylic or poly(methyl methacrylate) (common trade names include Plexiglas®, Lucite®, and Perspex®) - again, they're plastic.

There are apparently some specific types of plastic which are considered less acceptable than polycarbonate; I'm not sure which ones that would be. From the linked discussion:
  1. polycarbonate is good
  2. some anonymous "pharmaceutical-grade" or "food grade" polymer is probably good
  3. acrylic is not so good
  4. something else is probably bad

Yah, I know, but that would have made the sentence too long and convoluted.

Did we really need to get a novel on something we already knew? Jeepers, just want to drink wine.

Hi, the plastic glasses I bought were a complete impulse buy. We were in a kind of high end hot tub store so I hoped the cups were good also. The extent of my "due diligence" was liking the heft and feel of the various glasses on offer.

Now that I see the interest and technical info about plastic glasses on this thread I flipped the wine glass over and see that it comes from Stahl Strahl | Home and the companies web site seems nice. However I see that the glasses were made in China. Sooooo...... I hoping the lead content isn't to high.

That is what caused the downfall of the Roman Empire, container and food/drink contamination.

Oh, No! Could this possibly mean that the Escape Forum is in definite jeopardy?
