I purchased 4 sets of these mugs: black/white, white/black, blue, and red. They are so lovely that I am coming back for the apple green! The photos do not do them justice; they are so much more beautiful in person! These mugs are the perfect size for a cup of tea, hot lemon water, or coffee, and are beautifully finished with a high-polish interior and exterior. The handle is perfect too! They wash beautifully in the dishwasher, or by hand. These mugs a very versatile; I use them not only for hot and cold beverages, but for serving smaller portions of food, such as pasta and potato salads, and desserts too! Most of all, I appreciate the integrity of this company making available lead-free products that I can feel safe purchasing, using, and sharing with family and friends. Thank you Ceramcor!
