Every One? or All of Them? In the following sentences, I think I'll use "all of them" instead of "every one." However, I saw "every one" is used like this in a textbook. I'm not familiar with this usage of "every one." Is this usage heavily used in everyday conversation? Sarah is invited to a lot of parties and she goes to every one / all of them. I asked her lots of questions and she answered every one correctly / all of them correctly. I dropped a tray of glasses. Unfortunately every one broke / all of them broke.

Every one is used to emphasize the individuals of a group and if you want to give even more emphasis you may say I dropped a tray of glasses. Unfortunately every SINGLE one of them broke. And yes, it's a pretty common expression in everyday conversation.
