Q: After moving last year, I lost my dishwasher and started using my own two hands — a task that is clearly not my strength, as I have broken most of the glassware in my cupboards.

I am a serious whiskey drinker, always neat, and am looking for relatively inexpensive ($5/glass) and very substantial glasses to sip whiskey out of. Any suggestions?

Editor: Danielle, if you want truly resilient glassware, look for tempered glass — like the famous Picardie tumblers by Duralex. You can find them many places; Crate & Barrel has them for about $2.50 apiece. My husband and I sip Scotch out of these glasses, and it works nicely.

If, however, you want a glass designed more specifically for whiskey, then you may want a snifter. These may not be quite as durable, but many whiskey drinkers like sipping from a small, tulip-shaped glass.

Readers, any recommendations or good ideas for Danielle?
