Despite all the recommendations I have never brought any Riedal wine glasses. The number of reports of 'how I broke my Riedal' almost outnumber those they rave about them. I mean have you seen how fragile their stems are?

Now competitor Schott Zwiesel has invented the unbreakable crystal glass. The website includes some fascinating videos including two experiments with ball bearings.
"A quantum leap in crystal glass. After long years of intensive research and development, in collaboration with the University of Erlangen, Schott Zwiesel has succeeded in creating a new type of crystal glass. The use of unique ingredients combined with an advanced manufacturing process, has created an incredibly pure, hard and clear crystal glass. A crystal glass that is highly resilient to dishwashers, accidental breakage and chipping. Tritan is a unique, patented crystal glass that sets new standards."

Sounds like one for me!

Hey, my housemate Mark is off to celebrate a friend's birthday in Sweden on Friday and wants to buy a bottle of champers for him. He has a (rather ridiculous) prejudice against buying anything French, so I was wondering if you could recommend a non-French Methode Champagnoise for him to buy. Probably ranged between 15 - 25? MTIA!
