When it comes to picking the perfect drinking glasses, it’s all about needs and personal preferences. Do you want something that stacks? Is shatterproof? Would you prefer a glass that is actually glass and has a heavier feel, or something that is acrylic and is better for using outdoors? Are you buying glasses for daily use, entertaining, or both?

Whatever your drinking glass preference, we have you covered. While it is possible to have too many things cluttering up your kitchen, one item we are continually running out of is drinking glasses. That’s why we love the three sets of glasses included on our list today, which are not only affordable and sold in large collections, they’re also versatile.

On our list we’ve included glasses that are suitable for homes with children, glasses that are perfect for everyday use and can withstand years of weekly or daily trips through the dishwasher, and glasses that are the last set of drinkware you’ll ever need to purchase thanks to their durability and high-end finish, which means they can be used indoor, outdoor, during a party, or while sitting at the breakfast table having your morning orange juice.

With classic styles and fun and funky restaurant-inspired looks, we know you’ll find the perfect set of glasses below, which means you can finally stop running the dishwasher simply because you have nothing to pour your drink into.

  

1. US Acrylic Classic 8-piece Premium Quality Plastic Tumblers

Perfect for both indoor and outdoor entertaining, the US Acrylic Classic 8-piece Premium Quality Plastic Tumblers look as elegant as glass but are shatter resistant.

Pros: The US Acrylic 8-piece set includes four 12-ounce and four 16-ounce glasses, providing variety while still looking like a complete set. The BPA-free acrylic glasses are lightweight and ideal for everyday use and we like that they’re safe for use by kids without looking like little toy cups.

Cons: The clear, glass-like acrylic glasses are elegant and durable and can be placed in the top rack of the dishwasher, but we recommended hand washing whenever possible, which will extend the life of the glasses and help them from cracking or fogging up. The design of the glasses also makes stacking impossible, which may be a con if you’re limited on cabinet space.

2. Libbey Classic 16-Piece Tumbler and Rocks Glass Set

A best-seller for more than 50 years, the Libbey Classic 16-Piece Tumbler and Rocks Glass Set features the company’s iconic weighted bottom shape that is elegant and timeless.

Pros: The Libbey packs a ton of value, with the affordable price tag including eight 13-ounce double old fashion rocks glasses and eight 18-ounce cooler glasses. The glasses are dishwasher safe and made lead-free, so they’re sure to last for years. Perfect for alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks and durable enough to be used every day while also elegant enough for dinner parties, the Libbey have an attractive wide top curve that makes them comfortable to drink from.

Cons: As the only glass option on our list, the Libbey is the heaviest, and also the most likely to shatter when dropped. Unlike the other two options, which are acrylic, we wouldn’t recommend using the Libbey outdoors or with small children.

3. Cafe Break-Resistant Plastic 20oz Restaurant-Quality Beverage Tumblers

Turn your kitchen into a diner with the Cafe Break-Resistant Plastic 20oz Restaurant-Quality Beverage Tumblers.

Pros: If you’ve ever wanted to bring the look of your favorite diner into your home, now is your chance. The Café is a set of 16 shatterproof 20-ounce tumblers in four different colors, which makes it easy to identify the owner of each drink. The break-resistant glasses are great for everyday use, as well as outdoor use, including camping, and can be placed in the top rack of the dishwasher for easy cleaning. The glasses can also be stacked for secure storage, although it’s recommended to make sure the glasses are completely dry before stacking them.

Cons: Some customers note that the glasses arrive with a sharp edge around the lip of the glass.
