How do you see your cup this morning? Is it half empty or half full? No, I am not going to go all weird on you today but I thought it was kind of fitting for my review today. 🙂
I received this box in the mail to review and was excited as soon as I opened it. How cute is this? It has a great space-saving design, it is colorful and bright,
lead-free, dishwasher and microwave safe and is made of Stoneware Ceramic. I quickly opened it up and snapped a few pictures before giving it a quick wash through the dishwasher cycle to verify it’s dishwasher safe status and it passed with flying colors. The stand is sturdy and well built and it functions perfectly whether full or missing a couple mugs. I love the way the stand looks and I love the way it works. It’s simple to remove a mug from the stand to use and it’s just as easy to put one back in the stand. The handle slides down through the gap on the side and the rest holds the mugs just right. As you can see the mugs are painted so cute with different pastel colors on their mug part and their handles and they all look very nice together. In this picture they were straight out of the box and still have the protective foam liners between them to avoid any chips while being shipped. Mine all arrived in perfect condition.
Another thing that makes this work so well is that each one was made with a lip on the bottom that fits nicely inside the mug below it increasing it’s stability when stacked in the stand. Each of the four mugs are 12 oz. and holds 11 oz. of your preferred beverage. I also love the size of these mugs. By the way have you ever wondered what the difference was between a cup and a mug? Well a “standard” cup is eight ounces while a mug is a type of cup that has a handle on the side and doesn’t need a saucer. Mugs are typically bigger than teacups and the reason why I prefer them. These mugs fit nicely in my hand with a diameter of 3 & 3/4 inches and a depth of 3 and 1/4 inches to the bottom inside and 31/2″ including the lip on the bottom.
These cups and stands are super cute and I know I will enjoy seeing them standing there next to my coffee maker every morning with the smell of coffee luring me in. They are available on Amazon right now for $29.95 and are Prime eligible so you get FREE 2 day shipping!
