Designed by Alfredo Haberli in 2001, the Iittala Essence range consists of elegant champagne glasses, wine glasses, and glasses that suit any dining occasion. Haberli designed the Essence range with the intention to give a superior drinking experience. This elegant hand blown glassware is the perfect addition to any dining scheme.
Materials & Finishes
The glass used in Iittala glassware is high quality and optically very clear. It resists both chemical and mechanical wear well. All of Iittala’s utility glasses can be washed in the dishwasher. The glasses should be positioned in the top rack of the dishwasher so that they do not touch each other during the wash cycle. The surface area of glass expands when heated and therefore glasses should not be stacked while still warm from washing as they then may stick together and break.
For hot drinks, use only glasses that are made of heat-resistant special glass – HotCool and Tsaikka. These glasses can also be used in microwave oven. All other Iittala glasses and glass pitchers are meant only for cold drinks and should not be used for hot drinks or in microwave oven.
Delicate stemware, pitchers and jugs, mugs, large-footed dessert bowls and objects with glass of varying thickness should be washed by hand and we recommend hand wash only. To clean these items use regular dish washing detergent and a soft dish washing brush. Rinse well and leave to dry or dry with a soft cloth.
