The Best Drinking Mugs

Updated on November 7, 2010

Most drinking mugs are just a plain addition to your tableware - much like dinnerware sets. Like supporting actors, they a small part in your everyday life, and you take them for granted, but would notice if they were not there. There they are - day in, day out, barely thought of. Whenever you drink coffee or tea, or hot chocolate - or any number of other hot drinks.

So, although you rarely give them a thought, it is worth spending some time choosing them in the first place because you are going to use them over and over again.

I can recommend all the mugs on this list as being well worth the cost and long-lived. It's quite amazing the different styles and choices available - and the five best kitchen mug designs are featured below.
