HEAVY BASE 18oz MIXING GLASS
With a heavy feel this mixing glass is a big contender in beverage service. The 18 ounce capacity allows for a free pour of a standard serving of beer with plenty of room for the head, however, top it up with ice, and it makes a solid impression for lemonade or other like beverage.
Thick base and solid build
There are those people who will really appreciate the Heavy Base Mixing glass and its look and feel. This classic mixing glass shape has been elevated to a whole new level. It starts with a very heavy base referred to as a sham. This additional weight helps in the stability of the glass but also create a feel of quality. The side walls of the Heavy Base Mixing glass are also very heavy which makes this piece very durable for daily use, whether around the house or in a corporate setting. Being the shape of a mixing glass, you can also create cocktail type drinks using a shaker cup right in the glass and serve straight away. Although this glass is great for beer, some other easily developed daily uses would be for that tall glass of milk, a big bold serving of lemonade, or anything else you can think of.

E-2 PRINTING NEW!
LEHR FIRED PRINTING (COMMERCIAL GRADE)
Machine dishwashing should be avoided with any printed product to maintain its lasting beauty. Although our product is somewhat dishwasher resistant, a lot has gone on in the industry over the past year or two. A number of the companies that produce dishwasher detergents are adding a product called citric acid. In some cases, the concentrations of this type of acid are very high, and problems have begun to surface throughout the industry. These issues are not exclusive to us, as all decorators have been working toward different strategies to combat the problem. The citric acid and alkaline in the detergents sit on the glass and ceramic, and over time, begin to attack the surfaces. This does not just affect any printing, as it slowly breaks down the glass or ceramic body’s surface. Over time, the glass surfaces will start to look pitted or foggy, but what is actually happening is that the acids and alkali are softening the surface and then an actual tiny piece of the surface breaks away. Over time the entire surface begins to look very scratched and/or cloudy. The same thing has begun to happen with the Lehr fired prints, and over time can break down the surface and begin to wash away. Ironically our E-2 printing, which is the cheaper version, is less affected by this phenomenon. However, E-2 is a baked enamel method similar to the auto body paint on your car, so it is less scratch-resistant. In commercial dishwashers, the chemicals used are different, and we rarely see this issue.
Although Lehr firing is still the more durable, we usually recommend its use in commercial settings, in domestic locations, where promotional glassware tends to be, we recommend going with the “E-2” product. These combinations appear to be the best scenarios for the current market. In some cases where it is necessary to use transfers, Lehr firing is the only option.
Again, the issues noted above are rare but do exist, so we would always encourage hand washing where possible. As a result of these recent changes in the industry, we, unfortunately, do not offer a warranty on dishwasher resistance on our products.
One last note. Due to the construction of ALL stainless steel type tumblers and cups, they should always be hand washed and should not be put in the dishwasher.
