Copper mug quality

Things have changed a lot since I build this website in 2013. At that time you can only find just a few copper mugs online, even on, not to mention about local stores. But now there are tons of hundreds of India made copper mugs on the market. It seems like they suddenly show up at your front door over just one night. Of course it tells us how much people love this legendary Mule drink.

If you don’t mind tarnishing, decoloration or even worse erosion of copper mug these item cost less than 20 bucks to give the cool feeling of Moscow Mule. That will be almost the same felling people felt 70 years ago, after all it is why you want a copper mug, am I right?

But if you cares more about the quality and want a fine copper mug to give a serious long companion. These are some useful tips that may help:

Copper Mug Material

Solid unlined copper mug is traditionally recommended for Moscow Mule. If you have safety concern about copper toxin a nickel lined mug maybe an alternative to compensate you. Copper plated steel should be avoid. That can be considered as a trademark for low quality copper mug.

Copper Mug Making methods

I personally recommend to every Moscow Mule lover a hand hammered solid copper mugs. Every hand hammered copper mug is unique but unfortunately most mugs are hammered by machine in India or China. The only one that will satisfy anybody is made by Sertodo Copper, a family company located in Austin, TX and Michoacan, MX. Copper mugs they made has top quality  and are more expensive than others. Each mug costs about 35 dollars, almost twice of Indian copper mugs. Their products are first available at since April 20, 2012.

tips check the Product Information for “Date first available at” can tell the first this item are on Amazon and rule out those suspicious mugs.

Mug Handles

pay more attention to the handle A solid copper mug should have a solid copper handle riveted to the wall. Brass handle is acceptable and again copper plated steel should be avoid. It has no ability to give you lips and hands the same cool felling that you want at the same time. Add content to the front page

Weight of Copper Mugs

Just remember copper is heavy metal so does a good cooper mugs. There are tons of hundreds of copper mugs on Amazon waiting for you. And they all claimed to be made of solid copper and none of them have ever mentioned the thickness of their products. How can we pick up the heavier ones that will give more pleasure. You should pay more attention to their weights. The following table is

From the table we come to this conclusion the heavier the net weight a copper mug has the more positive rating it will get from more customers and of course the better quality it has. In fact heavier weight also matter to judge a copper mug because it related to another factor that indicate the quality of Moscow Mule mugs you get the accessories.  With solid performance across nearly the entire category, things like usability become significantly more important for differentiating between specific products.
