by eslevy17

Tired of broken glassware? Pick up some unbreakable acrylic or polycarbonate drinking glasses, and never replace them again!

If you're constantly finding yourself cleaning up broken glass, whether it's because of guests, kids, or your own clumsiness, there is finally a way out of the mess once and for all.

Unbreakable acrylic and polycarbonate drinking glasses provide tough, long-lasting glassware that won't shatter into a million pieces. They look just like regular glass, and come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, from tumblers to wine glasses, highballs, martini or margarita glasses, beer mugs and more.

Pick some up today and never worry about cleaning up carpets full of broken glass shards ever again!

How can glasses be unbreakable?

Durable drinkware is easier than you think

It's surprising this hasn't caught on yet, since indestructible plastic bottles are so readily available and enduringly popular. Why not do the same with ordinary drinking glasses?

By using shatter-proof and impact-resistant materials such as acrylic or polycarbonate, glassware can be made to survive the rigors of small children, clumsy adults, tile floors and outdoor patio parties. They are virtually indestructible when subjected to everyday use, not particularly expensive, available in clear or colorful finishes, and will probably outlast the dinner table they adorn, and can be handed off to future generations. You'll never have to clean up a floor full of tiny glass shards ever again, and you certainly won't have to "find" them weeks later with your toes.

Most unbreakable glassware is made from polycarbonate, which is the stronger of the two, though acrylic glasses are still tougher than ordinary glass. Both are dishwasher safe, though generally only suitable for the top rack, on medium heat cycles; higher temperatures can damage the material, so keep the dishwasher on a regular cycle if you use one.

These materials are safe when used properly, and have been used in plastic water bottles for decades without any trouble. As long as they're properly handled, they won't cause any problems. In some cases they are even microwave safe, but make sure to check the care instructions before throwing them into the microwave to see what happens.

Unbreakable Highball Tumblers

Classic and classy everlasting highball glasses

The highball glass is a worldwide classic, found in households and restaurants all over the world, with a slim elegance that is at home in any style of decor. When made of durable acrylic or polycarbonate, they become even better.

Below are some of the best polycarbonate and acrylic glasses available online, all of which are made from impact-resistant materials, and will survive all sorts of drops, toasts, and other punishment. They're entirely dishwasher safe, and will probably pay for themselves after enough dinner parties. Maybe just a few, if they're birthday parties for 5 year olds.

Some brands make a variety of shapes and styles (Clarus Tritan in particular), so you can outfit a whole kitchen with matching glassware, from highballs to rocks glasses, for all sorts of different needs, and have a fully stocked bar, ready for anything.

Unbreakable Lowball Tumblers

Acrylic and polycarbonate old-fashioned or rocks glasses

Despite their history of being the glass of choice for strong drinks such as whiskey straight up or on the rocks, plus all sorts of mixed drinks, lowball glasses are responsible for far fewer spilling mishaps than their taller counterparts above, and are actually great for children.

They're shorter, harder to knock over, have less liquid in them to begin with, and will keep things a lot cleaner as a result. Plus, they look classy.

Fewer companies manufacture lowball glasses compared to the taller styles, so there aren't as many options here, but you can still find high-quality acrylic or polycarbonate tumblers in lowball style that will hold up to whatever you throw at them.

Again, all options listed are dishwasher safe, though in most cases top-rack only, and not on cycles using high heat for drying purposes.

Unbreakable Wine Glasses

Polycarbonate and acrylic wine glasses for crazy parties

So of all possible applications of unbreakable acrylic glassware, wine glasses are clearly the best possible use of such technology. Wine glasses are exceedingly fragile, and wine makes people increasingly likely to drop fragile things. Plus, they rattle together in the dishwasher, and usually come out upside down when everything has finished. Time for a change.

The wine glasses listed below are manufactured from highly impact-resistant material, which will be happy to bounce off a tile floor and be used again and again. It won't solve the problem of wine stains, of course, but at least you'll only have to clean up one mess instead of two.

The options listed below are some of the most popular or highly regarded options. Some are sold individually, some in sets, so check out the options. All are dishwasher safe, and will last for many years.

Unbreakable Stemless Wine Glasses

Less stem, same wine

So apparently this is a new thing sweeping the nation, as millions of happy wine enthusiasts realized that the stem was an elegant but useless appendage that makes dishwashing far more of an awkward hassle than it has any right to be.

Enter the stemless wine glass, which looks an awful lot like a curvaceous lowball tumbler, and is probably suitable for use with all sorts of drinks. It's also harder to knock over when it's half the height, and much easier to wash, store and transport as well.

We shall see if efficiency wins out over aesthetics, though many people are happy to have these adorable glasses in their household, and throw classy wine parties with them. And now they're unbreakable too!
