Chinbull "glassware" - Review (and drop test)

Chinbull rice bowl

Microwave, dishwasher, and break resistant.

According to the bottom of the bowl, these are supposed to be microwave safe, dishwasher safe, and break resistant. I put these in the microwave and they seem to be fine. Since I don't have a dishwasher, I can't test the second claim. However, they're probably dishwasher safe. The only way to test the last claim is to try and break them by dropping them on the floor. So I did.

Regular price: only $1.99 a bowl!
Here's the video of the drop test:

Bottom line:
These dishes would be idea for households with clumsy room mates and/or kids. However, dropping them from heights over 5 feet is not recommended. However, how often does that happen? They're probably not ideal for Greek weddings, where you're supposed to break the dishes. A lot of in-laws might get kinda annoyed there but if they're tall and strong enough, these dishes are definitely breakable. For the sale price of only $4 for 3, these bowls are a very good deal. Please don't let the video deter you from buying them. They're probably more break-resistant than regular glass or porcelain.
