The Best Mugs to Drink From

When it comes to drinking from mugs, we are spoilt for choice. Whether you prefer stoneware mugs or ceramic mugs, YETI insulated drink containers, or Thermos insulated mugs, we’ve reviewed the best jugs and mugs to make your choice easier. Our choices will mainly be based on quality and durability but other qualities such as health, or heat retention will be taken into account. This is to keep in mind versatility, whether the mug can withstand the smouldering heat of a morning brew or the sub-zero temperatures of cool evening beverage.

Perhaps there is a mug needed for an occasion. A fathers day mug is not appropriate for a Queens Jubilee occurring in 2022. Such an event requires the appropriate drink vessel, for instance, consider Jubilee mugs. But first, let’s take a closer look at what we recommend and why.

Stoneware mugs

If you’re looking for a durable mug, stoneware is an excellent choice. These ceramic mugs are nonporous and resistant to thermal shock, so they won’t break or chip. In fact, these mugs are so resistant to heat and temperature changes that they can be transferred from freezers to ovens without cracking. Of course, they’re not suitable for brewing beer cheese soup, or serving hot food, but they make a great gift for friends and family.

Ceramic mugs

There are several benefits of drinking from a ceramic mug. First, ceramic maintains heat better than other materials. Porous ceramic slows down conduction, or loss of heat through direct contact between two materials. Additionally, air pockets in the porous surface of ceramic are effective heat insulators. Compared to glass, ceramic loses heat through convection more slowly. Because of its higher specific heat, ceramic is healthier to drink from than glass.

YETI insulated drink containers

YETI insulated drink containers are known for their excellent insulation properties and are the best mugs to drink from when it’s cold. Their two different sizes are perfect for traveling. The Lowball has a capacity of 10 ounces, which may not be enough for coffee drinkers on a hike. They also have a larger version, the 64-ounce Rambler, which has a lid and a drinking spout.

Thermos mugs

One of the main benefits of using Thermos mugs is their ability to keep beverages hot or cold for up to 12 hours. They are dishwasher safe and feature easy-to-clean lids. They are also easy to drink from, with a small opening for drinking. The mugs are white with a band around the top that serves as a coffee collar. The band protects your hands from scorching temperatures, while adding grip to your cup.

CamelBak mugs

The CamelBak mug is a double-walled, vacuum-insulated stainless steel cup. Its lid is a tri-mode valve that regulates the flow of liquid. Its lid is dishwasher safe. The company claims to have invented this type of hydration device, which was created by Michael Eidson. It has become a popular travel mug in the past few years, and the company is committed to creating high-quality products for the outdoors.

BruMate Toddy XL mug

The BrĂ¼Mate Toddy XL mug is a triple insulated stainless steel mug that has many uses. It features a double-threaded, leakproof design that is fully functional in both left-handed and right-handed use. Another unique feature is the BevLock Technology, which helps to prevent spills and drips. This makes it a perfect mug for travel and everyday use.
