HCG FAQ Tab
How much liquid does the glass hold?
The glass insert’s volume has been optimized to perform like a double rocks glass and holds 12 oz of liquid. Perfect for a G&T, Margarita, Mai Tai or Double Old Fashioned.
Can I use my Hybrid Cocktail Glass for hot beverages?
Yes, the vacuum insulated base also insulates hot liquids.
Should I hand wash my Hybrid Cocktail Glass?
Yes, please hand wash the glass and steel base to preserve the finish. Some dishwashers can damage the measuring graphics on the glass insert.
Is this product backed by a warranty?
Yes. Elevated Craft products are designed to last for decades. Long lasting and reusable consumer products have the least environmental impact, and your Hybrid Cocktail Glass is no different. See our warranty policy for more details.
Is the clear cup made from plastic or glass?
The clear cup is made of high strength borosilicate glass. The bottom of the glass is thick and weighed making it great for muddling right in the cup.
Do large ice cubes fit in the glass?
Yep, large 2" spheres fit perfectly.
Can I put my glass insert in the freezer?
Yes, you can store the glass insert in the freezer to super chill your beverage. We do not recommend putting the vacuum insulated steel base in the freezer.
Should I put the steel base in the freezer to make it super cold?
The steel base is double wall vacuum insulated and should not be put in the freezer.
How do I use the built-in measuring features?
The measuring features have been calibrated to work best when the glass insert is placed in the steel base and you are looking into the cup at roughly a 45 degree angle.
How do I remove the glass insert from the steel base?
Gently rock the glass insert side to side to release the cup from the glass lock ring.
Is the Glass Lock Ring removable?
No, the Glass Lock Ring is permanently fixed and should not be removed. The glass lock ring has been designed to be ultra durable and not require removal like a traditional gasket. It is normal for the ring to spin. To remove the glass it is best to rock it side to side to release the grip instead of spinning the glass.
How is the black and copper metal finish applied, is it safe and scratch resistant?
The metal finish is achieved through an advanced physical vapor deposition process also known as PVD coating. This is the same food-safe process commonly used on many knives and utensils you see in the store. The surface is durable and scratch resistant but we recommend hand washing the steel base to preserve the finish.
