Most of us use a coffee mug or cup at least once to drink one cup or know someone who lives with a mug in their hand! Do you know the material that used for your mug? Is your mug safe or not? Will your mug have lots of inconveniences when you are drinking the water? Will you be confused when choosing the water bottle? Today you can follow us to see the pros and cons of different kinds of cups and to choose the best one that you need.

Plastic Tumbler

The most normal material for plastic tumblers we can see in our lives can distribute to PP, PS, AS and Acrylic, acrylic is the clearest and hard, but also the most expensive. So if you want a nice price but with high quality, you can choose to buy AS or PS tumbler.

Plastic tumbler is more suitable for room temperature drinks, but if you like to drink with very cold or hot water, you can buy the double wall plastic tumbler like below, it is well for insulation when you use it to drink the water that we can’t hold in our hand.

Compare with stainless steel mugs, it is more popular with girls, who can decorate with lots of gadgets, which is very suitable for girl’s parties and gifts.

Beautiful as these tumblers are, but not very convenient if we take them outside. And it is easy to crack and break if it falls from a height.

Sports Plastic Water Bottle

For another kind of plastic cup, that is a sports bottle. Usually made by PS, ABS, PETG, PET, or Tritan. Both all these are for recycled material and can pass FDA, LFGB.

Most of this kind of bottle is designed for sportsmen, so it must be very portable, strip is an essential part of every bottle. Many people also like to print the scale on the surface to remind themselves to drink enough water.

Because this kind of bottle is designed for sportsmen, so some of them can’t stand the hot temperature water. If you like to drink hot water, I suggest you choose a thermal flask.

Ceramic Mug

More than likely you have a ceramic coffee mug in your cabinet right now. They’re wild used for coffee and tea drinkers. Also good to use for both cold and hot beverages even the microwave-safe! Ceramic mugs are the most neutral in terms of flavor. They do not hold on to flavors from other drinks. You can enjoy a variety of beverages in them without lingering smells or flavors. They do a decent job of keeping beverages hot or cold. They are microwave friendly so you can warm up your drink if it gets too cool. Ceramic coffee mugs can be an affordable gift for friends and family!

On a cold winter day, wonderful that we can make a hot cup of tea and hold the ceramic cup in our hands to keep warm.

However, ceramic mugs can crack, break, or chip if not handled carefully. We must protect them very carefully and also not very suitable to use it when we are going out.

Besides, large ceramic coffee mugs may not keep your beverages hot for very long, they have no heat protection and we need to drink the hot coffee as soon as possible.

Stainless Steel Bottle

This kind of bottle is also very normal in our life, almost everyone needs it. Easter likes to use it to drink hot water in winter, and Westerners like to use it to drink cold beverages during the hot summer.

Double-wall for heat protection is the specialist, using the silicon and screwed lid to make a sealed environment, by vacuuming the air between the two walls, the liquid in the bottle is well insulated from the outside world, ensuring it stays warm.

Different from plastic tumblers and mugs, it is very suitable for people to take them out no matter go sports or go shopping, just put them in our bag, and the water won’t leak out.

However, it is precise because of its thermal insulation function that factories generally do the design of the small bottle mouth, which makes it difficult for us to clean the cup. You may need to use special cleaners or wash them regularly by hand. Be sure to rinse it well!

Stainless Steel Bottle

Glass Mug

Glass coffee mugs are appealing in many ways. They are aesthetically pleasing as well as recyclable. Like ceramic mugs, glass mugs do not hold flavors from their previous contents. These types of mugs don’t conduct heat like metal mugs and are user-friendly. Since it’s non-conductive it won’t steal heat from your beverage like metal.

Glass Mug

These types of coffee mugs can easily stain. Over time plastic absorbs flavors, so you’ll need to keep your beverage the same. Otherwise, your next beverage will likely have trace hints of whatever was in the mug before it. You’ll need to make sure your plastic coffee mug or cup can handle hot beverages or if they are microwave safe!
