A Pleasant Surprise, August 25, 2009 5 stars
Pros
From the photo, I had no idea how large of a capacity these sifters really are. I was expecting them to be smaller and was pleasantly surprised. I like the solid quality, too.
Cons
None yet, but see "Other Thoughts".
Other Thoughts
A handle on each sifter cup would have been useful for those of us with reduced hand strength and flexibility. Handles would also allow the glass to sift from one cup to the one below, while shaken as a unit.

Not RED enough for me, June 25, 2009 2 stars
Pros
Scores and breaks easily and cleanly, as most Spectrum glass does, even with the white glass in the blend.
Cons
I was extremely disappointed with the final fired color of this glass. It arrived looking yellow and reddish-orange. It was supposed to "redden on firing", but it simply turned a wishy-washy darker reddish-orange, which was definitely not the look I wanted. The purchaser liked the piece but I was definitely not happy with it.
Other Thoughts
What I wanted was a true red and white swirled fusible glass. That is not what this glass is.
