This is a product review for Silipint, which I had the pleasure of trying out over the Holidays. This Silipint 'glass' is made out of the same basic materials as glass; namely silica, oxgen, hydrogen and carbon. This is a silicone product, which is rather unique.  

Just as glass does not exist in Nature, neither does a silicone product. In this case, the glass I received is called a Silipint.. You will not find any Silipint glasses sitting around in the woods or on the beach, but the ingredients to make these beverage containers come from the same place as those see through glasses we have used for many years; Nature.  

Silicone lasts about as long as a glass container does. It does not break down, and it does not break. I tried to break my sample, by dropping it, by throwing in on the ground, tossing it out on a concrete driveway, and it just bounced back. If properly handled, this product (like any silicone product) can be recycled into other silicone products. Recycled silicone based products vary greatly from electronics to lubricant and from medicines to cookware.

After I received this Silipint glass, I tried it first with a cold beverage. In this case, it was lemonade, straight from the refrigerator.  With a standard glass I would have been very cautious taking a glass out of the cupboard. Because of the properties of silicone, I had absolutely no concern about dropping the Silipint before or after filling it. As the Silipint sat there, I noticed that it did not bead up with perspiration like an ordinary glass would. It also seemed to stay cold longer. Perhaps there is some small amount of insulating properties with this silicone product? 

The Silipint practically threw itself into the fully loaded dishwasher... Have you ever noticed the noise that glasses make clinking against each other in the dishwasher? That does not happen with a Silipint. The next test was using the Silipint for a hot beverage. In this case I used hot cocoa. With a glass or mug, there is still the risk of dropping it, and the mug or glass heats up rapidly. The Silipint stayed cooler longer as I enjoyed the cocoa. The container never got hot enough to become uncomfortable. The Silipint turns out to have a higher insulation rating than glass, metal or ceramic containers. 

Bottom line, the Silipint is a pleasure to use and should last a long time. I would highly recommend using this product.
