Nice & solid
Wanted a couple of fairly solid large water or squash glasses that I could feel confident wouldn't be easily knocked over. Bought these glasses in green & really like the colour - they make even water look a bit more interesting. They are very practical & I don't have to worry if I break them as they are fairly cheap to replace.

Beautiful glass for everyday use
I bought this glass to encourage me to drink more water! It works! I'm now planning on collecting a set of them in every colour to brighten up my kitchen.

Poor quality item
Coloured coating started peeling off glass after two hand washes with no abrasive cleaners , items returned for a refund.

As mentioned before the same problem happened to my pink glasses. I bought these to match my bright kitchen wallpaper, but sadly they have also started to flake. Haven't had them long so I am going to try taking them back. I have the smoke coloured glasses and clear which at the moment are fine. Real pity.

Colour scratches off
I can't believe John Lewis are still selling these considering the poor reviews. I had exactly the same problem. These are not coloured glass. They are plain glass coated with colour that has scratched off within a couple of weeks of use. Very disappointed.

Loved the look of these glasses but the quality is incredibly bad. Got these home today and after washing them in soapy water before first use, 3 out of the 4 of them turned cloudy and no amount of rinsing and drying would restore the shine. I didn't realise until I read the other reviews that they were only colour-coated and not coloured glass. not going to wait a week for the colour to start chipping off-they are already in the bin!I am giving the one star for the lovely teal colour and because I couldn't give a zero! Poor show John Lewis.

Waste of money, do NOT buy
These glasses look very pretty, but only for about a week. Then coloured coating starts flaking off, like nail varnish. I'll have to throw away all 10 highballs as I really don't think it's good for my (and my family's) health to consume paint together with a drink.
It's been money wasted, not the quality I'd expect from John Lewis. Very disappointing.

Don't waste your money on these
These glasses look amazing when you see them in the shop, but be warned, when you get them home within a week the colour starts to peel off. They look like coloured glass but they are not. It is a colour coating that comes off when using a sponge!!! They are not of the quality John Lewis normally strives to meet.
