The 6 Best Plastic Drinking Glasses of 2023, Tested and Reviewed
by Kate Dingwall – Updated on 05/23/23
Plastic glasses are no longer just red Solo cups. Thanks to incredible innovations in the glassware field, the plastic glasses of today are heavy-duty, reusable, and designed with style in mind. They’re made to withstand everyday use, combining crystal-like quality with dishwasher-safe durability.
To help you choose the best plastic drinking glasses for your home, we researched the top-rated sets and consulted with glassware experts to discover their favorite brands. After testing each set side-by-side, we evaluated them on design, size, durability, and overall value. Many beverages—including water, cocktails, and wine—were sipped in various environments indoors and outdoors, and the plastic drinking glasses were even gently tossed off coffee tables and onto the floor to make sure they would stand the test of time.

There’s a lot to love about these plastic wine glasses. They have the appeal of real crystal with a brilliant reflective finish. Made from lightweight, bendable material, they’re also completely shatterproof. They look great, are environmentally friendly, and are completely serviceable for even the biggest wine nerds. We love them for sitting on a rooftop, hanging out in the park, or hosting friends who may get a little clumsy after a few glasses of wine (read: breakage!).
The design is particularly clever—a contoured shape and small dent in the side of each glass lets your thumb sit comfortably, making it easier to hold, a feature we definitely appreciated. They can be reused again and again and are completely recyclable should you decide you’re done with them one day. Other options within the brand include a Champagne flute, beer glass, cocktail glass, or whiskey glass, all of which are shatterproof. There’s even a matching decanter for serving.
