    Are stemless wine glasses cool?

    Thinking of getting some for daily wine. Big round globe things for red wine.

    Any recommendations? Or forget it and shred my man card?

    I don't like them personally, but I'm a bit of a swirler.

    The riedel stemless O glass (chardonay) is a pretty badass looking wine glass, and also doubles as a dessert glass.

    A restaurant I worked at used stemless riedels for coffee, and before we got staff Mugs I broke about 4 in a week the boss wasnt impressed

    Their main redeeming quality is that they fit in the dishwasher.

    They also fit in cabinets better. That being said, I don't own any since I think we have 50+ stemmed glasses and have no more room. I have used them at places that have served wine/water in them. I think they are just a little fashion statement for those that want dual usage glasses.
    Just because they make it in your size doesn't mean you should wear it...

    I have 4 at home. I prefer them over the traditional.

    I think they look good. Less formal IMO, so they'd be prefect for your intended daily use. They're fun. If you like them don't worry about what others think

    We have both stemmed and stemless. I reach for the stemmed ones more often, but they're heavy, thick glass, nothing fancy about them glasses that I've had for years. I like my meals and drinks to be as unpretentious as possible, and the stemless do a nice job of making people feel at home, so I do like them for that. To be honest, I'm a big fan of the clay stemless wine glasses that everybody uses in their homes in Portugal and a lot of Spain, as well as the glorified juice glasses that every Italian family seems to own.

    I've yet to lose or knock over a stemless Reidel. It's policy in my house that I'm not allowed to use the good stuff without adult supervision. I like the stability .
