    We enjoy a sip of an adult beverage some evenings. Since we are watching our intake of food & beverage, these fun glasses help is know how many ounces we are pouring without having to take out a measuring cup! And my husband (an engineer) loves the formulas!

    The glasses were smaller than I thought they would be, but that does not take away from the uniqueness of the gift. I just changed the ancillary gifts to accentuate the smaller glasses. This is a grab gift and I think its going to be a gift that everyone wants (given the geekness of the party attendees). Awesome product. I think I need to buy more...

    I bought this as a gift for my nephew who is graduating in 2014 with a degree in math and engineering. I love the glasses, but found them small and scaled better as a juice glass instead of as a nice cocktail glass. The concept and pattern is what sold me.

    I gave these glasses to my sister, a math teacher, for her birthday. She loved them right up until the print on 2 of the glasses came off in the dishwasher. They were a gift, so she never saw the website warning. Apparently there wasn't a warning in the box about hand washing only either. She is very disappointed now and so am I!

              Our product development team is experimenting with these Mathematical Measuring Glasses! Do you love the design or should they spend more time in the lab? Take a look at the product story and the alternate image, then let us know whether you prefer the two sided glass or the glass with the front image only, and whether you'd call these "Mathematical Measuring Glasses" or "Constant Pour Glasses."

              Cassie, UncommonGoods Community Moderator

              Or if you have another great suggestion for a name for this product!

              Two sides, as they are v. Appealing. Like Mathematical Measuring Glasses /Or Glasses by Numbers.

              I like them two sided but I didn't see them as measureing glasses but drink glasses like tumblers.

              Thanks for your vote, Tara! These glasses will help you measure the perfect pour (right down to pi!) of your favorite spirit, but they aren't intended to be used as measuring glasses in the "can I borrow a cup of sugar?" sort of way. They are great for sipping scotch while discussing Pythagoras' constant, though!

              LOVE these. I prefer the two sided, to double the geek factor! Great for every geek flavor, from the Math PHD to the armchair intellectual. Made in USA and dishwasher safe!! Fantastic!! I could see buying at least 2 sets of these, one to keep and at least one to gift...
