We're still not sure how it took so long for something as genius as a soup mug to become a thing, but we are sure glad it did! There is no better way to eat hot soup or stew. Each mug has a knobbed handle for ease of use and is big enough to serve up a pretty decent-sized portion without being overkill. Dishwasher safe. Microwave safe. Ovenproof. Lead-free.
