Simax is made by Kavalier, in Europe. Kavalier has been the leading European producer of borosilicate glass for more than 175 years and the owner of the German company, Bohemia Crystal. But I digress. Simax glassware comes with a 10 year manufacturer guarantee and with extremely high heat durability. Most of their glasses are microwave and oven safe!

Simax glassware is made from borosilicate glass. What exactly is borosilicate glass? The technical definition is

“Borosilicate glass is a type of glass with silica and boron trioxide as the main glass-forming constituents. Borosilicate glasses are known for having very low coefficients of thermal expansion (~3 × 10−6 K−1 at 20 °C), making them resistant to thermal shock, more so than any other common glass.” (Wikipedia)

The borosilicate glass is known for quality and safety. It has excellent durability and can be moved from the freezer to the oven and back, without damage. The glass is shock resistant and shatter proof. In the rare case that it does break, it wont’ be into a million small pieces, but rather larger, easy to clean up chunks.

In addition to all of this good stuff, Simax glassware is cadmium and lead free. And we all know, the less unknown chemicals we use in our everyday products, the better.

I actually had a Cancer patient call me, and request these glasses only. She explained that due to her condition she needs the purest form of glassware and her research has found that Simax is the only way to go. I was rather impressed.
