Luigi Bormioli Stems from Costco

Just curious if anyone else here has tried these stems. The set of 8, 20oz "Cab Merlot Shiraz" I bought at Costco recently appear to be of above average quality and well below average price at <$3 each. Rimless, thin and clear and with two "break-resistant" features. And supposedly certified to withstand 4,000 DW cycles and a 25-year guarantee, but I think that actually is limited to the stem itself, not the bowl.

I was skeptical about the break resistance, but I saw a restaurant supply store employee rap one *really* hard, cringingly hard, on a countertop with no damage.

I like them so far, even if they are a bit too large. If anyone knows more, including who might carry smaller shapes and sizes of this glass, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,
Kaleo
