Can you put fine bone china in the microwave?
Yes, fine bone china mugs are microwave safe. Fine bone china is made from bone ash and porcelain, which means it does not absorb microwaves, ensuring it stays cool. We would however always recommend checking the care guidelines for each product, as if the bone china features any metallic design elements, then it should not be microwaved.
Are fine bone china mugs better than stoneware mugs?
It all depends on personal preference. Fine bone china is all about the experience, with the thinness of the rim allowing for maximum exposure to taste. Fine bone china is also known for keeping your drinks hotter for longer. Stoneware mugs are perfect for people who love to cup their hands around a mug, they are much thicker in design, so they are less likely to scold as they distribute heat evenly. Stoneware mugs boast charm and character with a natural and rustic feel and are also great mugs for vegetarians and vegans. Read our guide on discovering the perfect coffee mug for you.
How long do travel mugs keep drinks warm?
Our travel mugs are similar to other normal mugs, and will keep drinks warm for around one hour, making them perfect for on the go and commuting. Made from natural materials, including bamboo, corn starch and food-grade melamine, they make a great sustainable option and feature a silicone band to protect your hands from the hot contents.
