The best insulated glass coffee mug for most people is the ZWILLING J.A. Henckels 12 oz coffee mug. These coffee mugs are the best we have found at keeping your coffee hot thanks to the double insulated borosilicate glass. They are extremely lightweight and can be used in the dishwasher or microwave. Pour yourself a regular cup of coffee or make a beautiful latte with layers and enjoy the look and feel of these coffee mugs.
Why Are the ZWILLING J.A. Henckels 12 oz Glass Coffee Mugs the Best?
Quick answer… the mug will keep your coffee hotter for a longer period of time. While vacuum insulated mugs with lids will keep your coffee hotter for a longer period of time, many people still enjoy drinking coffee out of a traditional mug. For those people, this glass coffee mug does a great job of keeping your coffee warm and it allows you to see your beverage through the clear glass.
The ZWILLING J.A. Henckels coffee mugs are absolutely gorgeous and they keep your coffee hotter longer than any other open top mug we have used. They feature high quality, double wall insulated borosilicate glass which stays cool to the touch, cleans easily, and it’s clear so you can show off your latte masterpieces you worked so hard on. The dual layers of glass eliminates messy condensation and the need for coasters.
Yes, there are stainless steel coffee mugs on the market with and without lids that keep your coffee hot for a long time but there is no elegance in these types of mugs. The ZWILLING J.A. Henckels 12 oz coffee mugs have a minimalist beauty, in an extremely lightweight package that makes them a joy to use on a daily basis. You simply have to use them for a few weeks to appreciate their design.
German Engineered, Italian Designed Double Insulated Glass
The ZWILLING J.A. Henckels 12 oz coffee mugs were created by the renowned Italian designer Matteo Thun. The design of the mug offers distinct aesthetics which are a visually impressive way to serve your favorite beverage or dessert. The ZWILLING J.A. Henckels mug enhances the experience by maintaining ideal temperature.
The design feels really good in the hand. When using the mug, the inside of your palm grips the borosilicate glass very well giving you a secure hold. The handle is well designed and extremely comfortable to use. You can grip the handle with two fingers or three, or put your fingers through the handle and around the mug for a more secure grip. Every configuration just feels right.
Have you ever tried to pass someone a hot beverage while you are holding the handle? The other person has to grab a hot mug and set it down quickly without spilling or burning their hand. Not with these mugs, the double wall glass keeps everything cool to the touch and no stress to pass the mug.
Their lightweight design, with its rounded edges make these mugs a pleasure to use. And speaking of rounded edges, they feel extremely comfortable on your mouth when sipping on your favorite beverage. Your lips seal comfortably to the glass for the ultimate drinking experience.
Great for Cold Beverages
The ZWILLING J.A. Henckels coffee mug is 12 oz in size which makes it perfect for coffee and tea, as well as some beer or cocktails. The clear double wall design insulates and showcases any type of drink you wish to enjoy with no condensation left on the furniture or counter. Coasters are a thing of the past.
Drinking cold water or any other beverage out of these mugs always seems better. The water tastes good and stays colder longer than most other open top mugs. The stylish look of the mug could be playing a part in the enjoyment. The insulated glass is what helps to keep your beverages colder for a longer period of time.
Great for Lattes or Layered Desserts
This is where the mugs truly shine. Preparing your favorite latte or layered desserts in these mugs make the experience all that more enjoyable. The crystal clear borosilicate glass will show off your creations for family and friends. Being able to see the layers in your latte or dessert makes the experience more unique.
Banana pudding, Smores in a jar, and Key Lime Cheesecake are a few desserts you can layer. Boston Cream Pie and Red Velvet Cupcakes will come to life displayed in the ZWILLING J.A. Henckels mug. With so many uses, there is no reason not to have a set standing by for your next party or event.
Microwave and Dishwasher Safe
The ZWILLING J.A. Henckels 12 oz coffee mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe. We have been using these mugs several times a day making pots of coffee in the morning and afternoon and they have held up great. We run them through the dishwasher when dirty and put them in the microwave if our coffee needs a quick re-heat. We have never had an issue with breakage.
ZWILLING J.A. Henckels vs notNeutral LINO Coffee Mugs
Being the coffee lovers we are, we purchased notNeutral LINO coffee mugs which came recommended online. We have been using them for a couple of months now. The cups are beautifully designed with a handle that flattens out at the top where it meets the mug. This is a great ergonomic feel and gives a place for your thumb while holding the mug. While these coffee mugs are beautiful, we found they were heavy and did not keep the coffee hot as long as the ZWILLING J.A. Henckels clear glass mugs.
Many times we would ask ourselves why the coffee was already cold in our mug. I can only assume the material that is used to make the mug is pulling the heat from the coffee as soon as you pour it. The second issue we found with the material used is you have to grab the mug from the handle after pouring coffee because the outside gets too hot. This is not an issue with the ZWILLING J.A. Henckels double insulated coffee mug. The double-wall layer of glass allows you to grab the mug anywhere after pouring hot coffee. This is very convenient when you pour a cup of coffee and hand it to someone.
