Why Japanese Glasses are SO EXPENSIVE 💡🥃

  • Publicado em 1 Fev 2022
  • Why Japanese Glasses (USUHARI) are so different than regular glasses? It's Paper-thin minimalistic style glass
    They are exceptionally thin and light, 0,9 mm, so because of that they get cold faster than regular glass. Usuhari is made by the same manufacturer as light bulbs.
    Japanese glasses are expensive and fragile but let expand the visual and taste experience.

      “that’ll be $40 for the drink and $70 for the glass. Can I get you anything else?” Now that I think about it, that would be a great way to make a lot of money if you charged more for breaking the glass than the glasses cost.

      I really hope I see a scene in a movie where people are all Oohing and Aahing over how thin these glasses are and how the Japanese people craft these glasses and that they're so expensive and a guy like Norm MacDonald or Doug Stanhope walks in randomly and you hear him order his drink and he says Thanks and as he goes to drink it it just shatters and everyone looks at him and he's covered in booze and goes *What the FUCK is wrong with you? Are you a psycho? Do you want me to die?* and just riff on the bartender about how stupid it is that the glasses are so thin and that they'll be hearing from his lawyer lol. Amateur writer here. Sometimes comments inspire me and yours did.

    This is genius, actually. They make the glass very thin so the amount of glass used is low, less weight to transport, it's very thin and fragile so there's always demand for new glasses. What a great scam!

      Or, like, it's the fact that they're made by hand from master glassblowers.

    • Flamez for the Gamez
      Flamez for the Gamez 3 meses atrás

      @Fitz the expensiveness of the glass comes from the manual labor since they are handmade and it is made with crystal glass, which contains minerals that harden and strengthen the material of the glass. Outside of practicality, its more of aesthetics and possibly the experience of holding it which goes towards its worth. Expensive regardless and could break from more pressure thana regular glass.

      Actually, they may be more durable than they look. It ain't typical glass. There is Usuhari crystal glass which means that the mineral content in crystal glass strengthens the material even though it would be thinner than normal glass.
      I imagine it's super pricey due to it being handmade rather than factory-produced. Fun fact: usuhari glass is also made from recycled fluorescent light tubes.
      So imagine yourself drinking from one of those classroom ceiling lights but without the toxic chemicals that make the lights bright.
      Or not. Twisting motion while cleaning the inside of such a glass could cause it to break. I'll stick to other glasses, thank you.

    On one of my first shifts as a waiter at a big gig, i was told to bring back all the empty beer glasses from around the tables. We we're very busy, so obviously i would try to get as many glasses back at a time, as i could carry, so i would stack them in my right hand and rest them up along my arm and over my shoulder. I didn't really think about how thin they were, and they were made in a stackable shape. When I was about 8 to 10 glasses in, I heard a crackle from one of the bottom glasses and just a few seconds later they cracked on me one by one, till the last few on the top that didn't, fell on the floor to do the same. They may be pretty, but they're awful to work with

      @Andreas karlsson These glasses don't exist for a gimmick, lolwhat. So is any glassware that's blown completely by hand a gimmick, just cause? Lol and a cocktail bar is a specific experience, and any bartender worth their salt will happily confirm that the style of glassware absolutely affects how a cocktail smells and therefore tastes. It's like having an authentic Mai Tai (obviously using faithful recreations from the original recipe like Denizen Merchant's Reserve) without garnishing it with a lime shell and mint - it tastes fundamentally different. Same thing if you serve it in a highball glass instead of a double rocks glass - it is going to taste vastly different. Sorry you don't have a developed palate and won't pick up on these things. If that's the case, then a cocktail bar is going to be a waste of money for you because you aren't going to be able to actually enjoy what you're imbibing.

Vinyl costs a fortune and sounds worse than CD. Designer sofas are uncomfortable to sit on. I can go on and on...

    To all the people complaining about fragility, in Japanese culture they like to handle their dinnerware elegantly and gently which is why so many of the dishes are fragile (not just glasses) and they usually follow specific etiquette rules specific to their culture. Before you use these glasses and judge them look into how they are meant to be used and don’t be so culturally ignorant.

      @George Brantley this glass definitely is not for a fast turnover bar, cause there the breakage would just be insane. It's for fancy bars, where they take actual 10 minutes to make each drink. The glass is materialized elitism. It provides no advantage, multiple disadvantages, doesn't feel great in the hand (I've held one, feels so so fragile and light), and just overall is pretty ugly compared to similarly priced thick glass. Also no, it doesn't make drinks taste better.

    • George Brantley
      George Brantley 7 meses atrás +2

      @Martin Erhard Cutomers expect a chilled glass, bars deliver. Chilling the glass does slow down the transfer of heat, even if just a bit--enough of a difference if a drink is downed fairly quickly in a high turnover setting. It is true that they are a bit fragile, though. Hence they are not *that* popular. But if you're accustomed to the thin glass, you'd know to be careful with it. Probably won't find much of these in touristy areas where customers may be accustomed to a thick glass, except as a novelty item.

    • Martin Erhard

      @George Brantley but why do you need a chilled glas with all that ice inside?

    • George Brantley
      George Brantley 7 meses atrás +3

      It makes it easier from the bartender side. If you have high customer turnover and cycle through the glasses quickly, you need a glass that'll chill quickly too. The assumption is that although the glass will also warm quickly, the tradeoff is worth it or else they'll run out of chilled glasses prematurely. So it helps with keeping costs lower for the bar by needing far fewer glasses. If it chills 3× faster but only costs 2× the price, you spend only 2/3 as much on glassware. Also, a thin glass is a bit of a novelty and lighter in the hand, so it may feel fancier to the customer, though this point is just subjective and highly variable.

      @Magnus Magnusson What I said is literally just a fact, I'm sorry you don't understand the material properties of glass, but I've worked with and studied different types of glass for almost a decade lol I'm a glass blower/ glass artist. I know what I'm talking about 🤷‍♂️

      @Andrew K niet. high carbon steel, stainless steel, and cast iron, these are mostly made of iron but they are all very different materials. Same goes for high silica glass, soda glass, lead glass, optical fibers, etc... it is not a marketing gimmick. Soda glass is the cheap stuff that breaks when you pour cold water into one after taking it out of the hot dishwasher.

    They're thin and get cold really fast, means they're more susceptible to temperature changes and within a minute after being pulled out of the refrigerator/freezer they'll be just a regular skinny glass with no other value whatsoever. The cocktail makers use a tonne of ice, barely any drink whatsoever when you account for the volume the ice takes up, and charge you a ridiculous amount for it. Meaning your ice will melt faster, dilute your drink more and ruin itself unless you drink it quickly and order another one.

    Honestly the only reason is because it's from Japan. Almost every Japan product I see is an explanation on why it's expensive. Like bruh

    Well, it's not necessarily expensive. You can buy glasses as thin as expensive one in one dollar shop in Japan.

    Is it just me, or does a heavier glass just feel better to hold? It feels sturdier and more expensive than a light glass.

    If the spaniards can sell a balenciaga regular ol baseball cap for 400 bucks, i think this glass is perfectly fine. Ditto for wine snobs and stemware...or the chinese and yixing tea pots
    Its actually quite unique to hold, and very beautiful. Theres a shop in los angeles called : " good liver ".i felt it there...but too expensive for me.

    This seems a little silly, spending more for a less insulated, less fragile glass? I mean, if you hold the glass there is more glass to lessen the heat transfer from your hand to your drink, or just ambient air of that matter.
