Kitchn editors have sipped from countless different glasses. (World's weirdest humblebrag, right? Don't feel bad, you probably have, too!) We've sipped from Mason jars, pint glasses, teeny tiny juice glasses, giant tumblers, the list goes on. It's a boring list, we know. We're just trying to paint a picture for you, so that when we say CB2's Marta Coolers are our favorite everyday drinking glasses of all time, you know that we've done the research to back it up.
At first glance, they look just like glasses you'd find in any other home goods store, but trust us: They're so much better. Ultra-thin, these glasses are lightweight yet sturdy enough to stay put, should a gust of wind blow through your backyard barbecue.
The Marta coolers can hold up to 18 ounces, so you won't have to refill your glass every five minutes, but you can still stack them compactly in your kitchen cabinet. And thanks to their "less than minimal" design, they're perfect for any occasion.
Some people believe a glass is a glass, and there's no reason to spend more than $5 on a set. But when you find style that looks good, is easy to clean, and can hold plenty of H20 to quench your thirst, you'll understand it pays off to be discerning about your glassware.
It's that mix of form and function that makes these glasses our all-time favorites. Don't believe us? With a 4.7 rating (out of five) and 177 reviews on CB2's site, shoppers seem to love them just as much as we do.
"Everyone who uses these glasses at our place always mention how much they like them," says one CB2 shopper. "I love how light and thin the glass is, and the clean straight lines of the glass."
"The simplicity and elegance of these glasses make them a must have," writes another. "They are thin and light yet, resilient!"
"These are my favorite of all the drinking glasses I've ever used," says a third.
We're not here only to wax poetic on these glasses. Normally, a set of eight glasses will cost you $20, but you can currently buy them for $17.95.
Admittedly, $2.05 is not that big of a discount. But whether you're already obsessed with these glasses or curious to try them out, you're still saving money you'd otherwise be spending. Plus, you can use the money you saved to buy tomorrow's cup of coffee.
