Different Types of Glassware and Stemware

The word ‘glassware’ refers to tableware made from glass, including flatware, cutlery, drinkware and dishes which are set on the table before a meal. Glassware can also be used for cooking meals, such as Pyrex dishes. There are many different types of glassware to choose from.

Most glasses to drink from are either flat bottomed, tumblers, footed or stemware. You can also get yard beer glasses which are tall, conical glasses for beer which have a round base.

Buy What You Personally Like

Different people have their own tastes in glassware so it’s good there are lots of different types of glassware to choose from. I love those heavy lead crystal tumblers for drinking whiskey (well, bourbon in my case!) and I like delicate stemware for wine. I have some 16 oz glasses for drinking soda or water and various smaller ones. Have you seen those stemless wine glasses? I don’t mind them for red wine, but I think holding one of those when drinking white or rose can warm it up too much (which is why they are stemmed in the first place) but they’re less easy to knock over I suppose!
