This set comes with four mugs and a metal wire rack to store them. Each mug is 12 oz., which is bigger than the mugs we have that came with our dishes. I really like the fact that they are larger since it seems like we never have enough coffee in one of the regular mugs.
One of the other things I really liked about these mugs were the colors. They are each uniquely painted, with a different color for the mug, the handle, and even the bottom of the mug. The colors are not too bright, and they add a little excitement to your kitchen counter.
Something else that I like about the colors is that, technically, to avoid arguments in the house, each of the four members of the family who drinks either coffee or hot chocolate can have his or her own colored mug!
What's exciting, too, is that they are microwave and dishwasher safe. These are two very big pluses in my book. With three kids who love hot chocolate, I like that the mugs make it easy to put the milk in the cup and right in the microwave. Quick and easy is a definite perk, because kids won't wait. After they are done, too, they can rinse their mugs out and stick them right in the dishwasher.
These mugs would be a great gift for a housewarming! What an excellent way to welcome someone to their new home. You get to give them something that has two functions: a set of mugs and a decorative addition to their counter top.
