I agree.I'm pretty careful with storage. Still, I think we've broken one piece of glass in the last eight years. Plastic and metal have worn through and made messes (beer and soda cans especially).
Before my Key West to St Martin 13 day bash upwind I forgot to pack away my wine glasses. Accidently just left them where they live above the stove. Didn't need to go into that cupboard for the whole trip so didnt notice them.
Only one broke :laugher
I love glass. Love the feel in the hand and the feel in the mouth, also love china plates and good cutlery... And coffee out of plastic? Never!
If I was living off plastic, paper and toy glasses it would begin to feel like camping.
