    Hi there,

    Yes. This special glass is especially resistant to thermal shock, but is also stronger and more durable than regular glass. Borosilicate glass is made by replacing the calcium carbonate component of regular glass with boric oxide.

    Difficult to find ANYTHING (aside from kitche, niche, or other one-off items produced in small - expensive - quantities) that ISN'T made in China!

    We've become a nation of service-industry consumers, who hunger for a) the best price, then b) the best quality - most often, in that order.

    Despite our nobel intentions, try to realize a world where all OTHER world citizens electedt to consume only their domestically produces goods: Our major remaining industries would undoubtely fail, or dimish to miniscule proportions, as automoble manufacturing alone would suffer catastrophic sales reductions.

    To those who would insist on "buying American" only, I might point out that most all "foreign" automobile manufacturers now have production facilites here in the US - BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, Honda, Mitsubishi, to name but a few - and foreign (off-shore) manufactures spend billions annually purchasing our domestically produced auto parts (Toyota and Honda alone, over $47 billion last year).

    Those "foreign" vehicles sold here provide sustaining livelihoods for innumerable Americans through sales, service, parts, etc. and the industries that supply expendables - just as our domestice vehicles (awith their ever-increasing percentage of foreign-supplied components) do...

    We're a world-wide economy, folks - from the tens-of-thousands of tons of American grown cotton that is sold and shipped world-wide, to return here as clothing and assorted linens - to our technologically innovative products - the best of which are often designed and marketed here, yet produced overseas.

    And let's not even GO there when it comes to our exports of food, medical, and pharmaceutical products!

    Those foreign companies that manufacture here pay the same taxes, spend the same for real estate, pay the same or better wages, and return profits to investors that our "own" companues do...

    For better or worse, we might as well accept the fact that we're "one world" - which doesn't imply that we have to cease agitiating for minimum standards of workplace safety, security, wages, and protections (that we're still struggling to enforce here at home) on a world-wide scale!

    @Stephen The Grommet CEO here. Thanks for weighing in with thought and new information here. We partially exist to surface this kind of discussion so people can act according to their values. When it comes to decisions about where to manufacture a product, there are soooo many variables. I appreciate that you understand that the world is not so black and white.

    I also have noticed that the people who say they "would" buy a Grommet if only it was made in the USA rarely are the ones who actually take that action when we discover a domestically made product. In fact they go totally silent and don't even cheer on the companies who make those decisions, or they criticize the company for charging too much. I don't understand that kind of behavior. If you feel strongly about something you need to support your beliefs, not just talk about them.

    But back to your comments, Stephen, thanks for illustrating the complexities of these issues.

    Not everyone agrees with you and we have been exposed to a lot of state of the art production capabilities and responsible labor and manufacturing practices in China, and even, sadly, the reverse in the USA, so it is not so simple a decision for our team or the "regular" members of our community. We try to help sort this crazily complex stuff out...but it is not easy, for sure.

    My main concern is when people assume their own values are shared by all.

    @Tami I am happy you agree and I do the same. I did buy a couple of products from Grommet and it WAS made in the USA and I was very happy with the quality and Uniqueness of that item. I like this website specifically for the unique items it offers. I am however not really happy with the response form Stephen the CEO in regards to the made in USA opinions. I will think twice about purchasing from this website again. Sorry Stephen just my opinion.

    @corrine I agree with you! My husband and I live simple lives and make every effort to buy 'made in USA' products. To afford USA products, we only buy what we need, make what we can't find or do without. Keep it simple.

    We did not arrive at this personal philosophy overnight. It took years for us to realize what our priorities are and became disciplined to follow it.

    On that rare occasion where we both agree to purchase a foreign made product, it will not come from China.

    I have tried to go mugs with silicon lids before and the lids always lost their ability to seal after just a few uses which made them basically useless to me for traveling. Are there any such issues with these cups?

  • Amy
    Amy – Grommet Team
    2/3/2014 1:55 PM

    Hi Christie,

    I think we've all been there. This lid is made from silicone and has been tested thoroughly in house. The lid stood up to the challenge and hasn't lost its firm seal, not to mention it has a nice "splash guard" to ensure that no coffee ends up on you or your clothing.

    I am also concerned about how tight the seal is on these mugs. Also, is there any way to close/seal off the lid completely? Or if I put the mug in my purse for my walk home from work will leftover coffee drops still be able to leak out the opening?

  • Amy
    Amy – Grommet Team
    2/3/2014 2:37 PM

    Hi April,

    We don't advise putting this into your purse without washing it out and drying it first. The opening isn't sealed shut so it's possible drips could leak out.

    I don't get it. People who won't buy anything made in China - but will buy if it's made in Australia. Then there are those who will buy on products manufactured in the USA. Well, I guess that means they would be angry with people in China buying things made in the USA. And, if that were true, all countries only sell their products to their citizens, we'd be in trouble. My guess is most people who won't buy from China don't have a problem using gasoline processed from oil we get in the mid-East.

    Really, we are a global economy and if we had no exports or imports and could only buy USA . . . I'm not sure what we'd do.

    I appreciate that people have the right to their opinions but let it be known that I have no problem buying one of these items.

I like this website specifically for the unique items it offers. I am however not really happy with the response form Stephen the CEO in regards to the made in USA opinions. I will think twice about purchasing from this website again. Sorry Stephen just my opinion.

    Sorry it was Jules CEO and Stephen the USA manufacturing expert.

    @corrine I agree with you! My husband and I live simple lives and make every effort to buy 'made in USA' products. To afford USA products, we only buy what we need, make what we can't find or do without. Keep it simple.

    We did not arrive at this personal philosophy overnight. It took years for us to realize what our priorities are and became disciplined to follow it.

    On that rare occasion where we both agree to purchase a foreign made product, it will not come from China.

    I have tried to go mugs with silicon lids before and the lids always lost their ability to seal after just a few uses which made them basically useless to me for traveling. Are there any such issues with these cups?

    Hi Christie,

    I think we've all been there. This lid is made from silicone and has been tested thoroughly in house. The lid stood up to the challenge and hasn't lost its firm seal, not to mention it has a nice "splash guard" to ensure that no coffee ends up on you or your clothing.

    Re: Sensitivity to "Made in China" ... since we used the Chinese to build railroads, dams and tend crops why shouldn't we use them to make coffee cups?

    @Harold T. Things have certainly changed since those days have passed when we could supervise the safety of all concerned. China is a Godless country and they do not like us and I among many real Americans do not trust a country that hacks into our largest business's and puts lead in childrens toys.

    I am also concerned about how tight the seal is on these mugs. Also, is there any way to close/seal off the lid completely? Or if I put the mug in my purse for my walk home from work will leftover coffee drops still be able to leak out the opening?

    Hi April,

    We don't advise putting this into your purse without washing it out and drying it first. The opening isn't sealed shut so it's possible drips could leak out.

    Is there anything to keep the cup from leaking out of the drink spout when it is accidentally turned over?

    Hi Barbara,

    That's a great idea for a future style. We advise keeping it upright when possible to ensure no spills.

    I would also be VERY interested in a larger size. 12 oz. is a little small for me but I love the concept.

    Great feedback, Terry. Several people seem to be interested in this so founder will be taking note.

    Hi, these look very nice. Are they dishwasher safe?

    Hi there,

    Yes, they're dishwasher safe. You can always find this information in the "details" portion when you click into the box that says "buy" in orange.

    How many oz does it hold? Looks small

    It holds 12 oz, typical barista size.

    Insulating quality? I'm guessing my coffee is going to be cold by the time I get to work. Think WAY too many -20° days this year.

    The JOCO thermal silicone sleeve provides double benefits, protecting your hands from the coffee’s heat while providing further insulation for the coffee. Those temps do not sound fun!

    I noticed in the slide show above several colors that you are not offering. Any chance you will be getting the orange and purple colors?

    Hi Rita,

    Right now we are not offering those colors, but I'll check and see on the possibility of that and will reach back to you directly should they become available on our site.

    Does the silicone top retain the taste of previous drinks? That always seems to be my problem with past products I have purchased.

    I have to agree with the others....the "Made in China" burst my bubble of enthusiasm for this product. I'll pass.

    Will you get any blacks back in stock? If so, could you inform me so I can buy a couple? Grey would also work. Thanks, Janet

    I don't get it. People who won't buy anything made in China - but will buy if it's made in Australia. Then there are those who will buy on products manufactured in the USA. Well, I guess that means they would be angry with people in China buying things made in the USA. And, if that were true, all countries only sell their products to their citizens, we'd be in trouble. My guess is most people who won't buy from China don't have a problem using gasoline processed from oil we get in the mid-East.

    Really, we are a global economy and if we had no exports or imports and could only buy USA . . . I'm not sure what we'd do.

    I appreciate that people have the right to their opinions but let it be known that I have no problem buying one of these items.
