The Evenflo Classic Glass bottle is just that -- a classic. The design is simple and straightforward, with no fancy shapes or anti-colic features. It is very affordable and compatible with a variety of nipples.
Although these are glass bottles, there are very few complaints about them breaking. They are made from a heavy-duty glass, which makes it more difficult to break them. However, there is a possibility the bottle can break when it undergoes rapid temperature changes or if it is thrown or dropped hard.
There are few bottles more basic than the Evenflo Classic Glass bottle. There is a nipple with ring and a bottle. It's easy to sterilize and clean, although one should be careful not to subject the bottle to extreme temperature shifts, or it could shatter. All parts are dishwasher safe -- the bottles on the top or bottom rack and the nipple and ring on the top rack. There are a few complaints about leaking, but not enough to make it a serious drawback.
The Evenflo Classic Glass bottle itself doesn't have any anti-colic features; however, it is compatible with a variety of nipples, including Dr. Brown's, which are known for their anti-colic properties. It may be harder for some babies to hold since it does not have an hourglass shape, and the glass may also be more slippery and heavier than plastic bottles. (The latter is what you'll notice in the diaper bag when you're hauling a few filled bottles). Another company, Silikids, makes silicone skins that fit Evenflo bottles. Note: They are not affiliated with Evenflo.
The Evenflo Classic Glass Bottle is a popular option for people who want a less expensive bottle and don't like the idea of plastic. The fact that it works with a wide variety of nipples makes it attractive.

Review: Evenflo 3 Pack Classic Glass Bottle, Contributors to Amazon.com
Reviewers from Target.com often spoke of the low price point of the bottles as well as the many different nipple options available for them. They also noted that the glass design makes them easier to load in the dishwasher, since the heavier material doesn't let the bottles bounce around during the cycle, which causes lighter plastic bottles to fill up with soapy water.
This reviewer likes the basic and clean nature of the bottle and was tired of all the components required with other bottles available today. She also disliked the haze that some plastic bottles acquire after a few months of service. In addition, she used the Evenflo nipples and found that her child had no problems adapting to the size.

In this review, the author mainly decided to use the bottles because they received a silicone cover to help prevent the glass from breaking, pushing them into the glass bottle lineup. She notes a few advantages, such as the additional weight making them less likely to tip. Her one word of caution is that glass bottles can break if put through drastic temperature changes, such as coming out of a hot dishwasher.
