Large, heavy, solid coffee mugs
on 24 December 2014
I am completely in love with these mugs. I am really quite particular about mugs and glasses - I really prefer a large heavy vessel - I like the feeling of something solid. These are just perfect. They are very solid and heavy. The walls of the mugs are very thick. I imagine that if you have arthritis, you probably wouldn't like them. The colors are also very nice - the photo represents them quite well, although I would say that the orange and yellow, in person, are maybe a touch less bright / bold. I have only had them for about a week, so I can't speak to the durability - but they sure feel like they'll last forever. They measure 10cm tall, 9.5cm at their widest (excluding handle), and the opening is 8cm. I measured their volume - to the very brim: 17oz = 1/2L = just over 2 cups. Also, this is by far the best price I found (anywhere) for this many mugs of this size. Note that you get 8 mugs - 2 of each color (although the description says 4 pieces). I just noticed that the description says that they are NOT dishwasher / microwave safe. Hmm, I've put mine in the microwave and they seem ok.
UPDATE: I have these for almost 2 yrs now, and I still love them more than any other mugs I've ever had. I do put them in the microwave occasionally and they seem to do ok. I don't have a dishwasher, so couldn't speak to that. I have had a couple of tiny chips in the handles but otherwise have found them to be extremely robust. Very satisfied.
