Spontaneously shatteredRalphBought a box of 4 of the 15oz green glasses. The day after 2 of the 4 shattered while sitting on the counter. No one was in the room, nothing in the glass. 1
DANGER: Shattered from simple washing! JosephI was initially very happy with these glasses. But just now one shattered on its own while drying on my dish rack! This is a hazard! Good thing I was NOT drinking from it at the time! I used hot water, but not boiling hot. It is completely insane. My trust for Ikea products is fast fleeing out the window. Seems they outsourced the making of kitchenware to some unsavory place without standards. This has never happened to me before. BEWARE!!!1
Arrived pre-chipped AllisonThese seem practical and attractive. Unfortunately, two in the set we got were already chipped on the inside, almost as if there were a rock left in the cups to rattle around. The response to reviews of defective products seems to be "come in with a receipt to return," but that's not practical when the store is over an hour away so I suppose we'll be eating the cost and trying our luck elsewhere. Oh well. 2

Yikes! These spontaneously shatter all over!!RachelNot a good product. Not sure what the problem is but I've recently purchased 12 of these glasses. Two have sepertately spontaniously shattered. It was evening after dinner. One of the glasses sat on the counter top. No one was even in the kitchen when we all heard the sound of breaking glass. We found the glass shattered in pieces right where it sat! Just now my husband had an empty one on his desk. He watched it, untouched, shatter! So strange. We are going to return the remaining product and buy something else. Should be a recall or something!1

Don’t buy these - will shatter spontaneously EileenWe recently bought this set. Washed one by hand this morning and set it on drying mat. Less than 10 minutes later it spontaneously exploded and there was glass on the counter, on the mat, and on the floor. I will be discarding the rest of the glasses because I don’t want to have this happen again and risk a dog stepping on broken glass.1
Love these glassesPamLove the size and feel of these glasses. They are not too heavy and we like the design and selection of colors. Price was right, too.5
Beautiful Blue!CherylThese glasses are a perfect size AND they stackable (2 glasses). They are a beautiful cobalt blue color! Vertical ribbing on the outside gives them glass tumblers a very nice look.5

Designing for the tastes of people around the world

Do you sometimes cook dishes from other cultures? Then you’re part of an international trend called transculturalism. It basically means that global cooking and eating habits are a lot more similar than you may think. How can we cater for this trend? We designed the VARDAGEN series with products that can be used in multiple ways. In Swedish, VARDAGEN means “every day”, which is just how the products are meant to be used, no matter where you live.

“Consumers have access to cultural diversity in cooking and eating from all over the world,” explains Ina Tidbeck Sjöblom, who helped create the products. “They want to taste the best of all cultures, which means that it’s not only in Asia that we need eating products for sushi.”

Creating products for all our differences (and similarities)

The VARDAGEN products are designed to turn differences into similarities. Like the eggcup. “We did it in a shape that it’s more like a very small dip bowl,” explains Ina. “So it’s also for Asian eating, you know the bowl where you put chili paste and other condiments.” Another bowl has just the right size and shape to be a rice bowl in Asia, but it can also be used as a side-salad or cereal bowl.

Answering the global demand for durability

VARDAGEN is uniquely suited to the global market—catering to the different needs of eaters. One thing people all over the world seem to agree on is the importance of durability. “We know from all the studies and research we do that people don’t want to buy and throw away things, they want to buy something that lasts,” says Ina. That’s why VARDAGEN is made from durable and sustainable materials, like glass, porcelain and stainless steel. That means, just like the name VARDAGEN suggests, they’ll be useful every day for many days to come.

Material

What is glass?

Glass is mainly made of sand, soda, and lime melted at a high temperature. Tempering or various additives gives you extra-strong and impact-resistant glass that in some cases can be taken straight from freezer to oven without cracking. A big benefit is how glass can be recycled over and over without the quality deteriorating. Also, a lot less energy is needed to melt recycled glass compared to new raw materials. Our goal is to eventually use only recycled glass in our range.

”We designed VARDAGEN tableware and glassware because we wanted to make timeless, traditional and lasting items for your home. Inspired by old-fashioned craftsmanship, we gave every piece a distinct function. Attention to detail and soft, round shapes make a beautiful frame for the food and drink on the table. Simplicity and honesty are the words we use to describe the products. Each part of the series has a soul of its own, that brings back memories and creates new ones!”
