1) My drink looks beautiful. I'm a latte and coffee "drink" person and love the look of the drink in this clear mug.
2# These mugs do keep the heat in the drink and out of your hand.
3) These mugs AREN'T too thin. I read several reviews describing the mugs as thin and breakable, but that isn't my experience at all. The thickness of this mug is between a fine red wine glass and a fine porcelain mug. I have had no problem with breakage whatsoever and use these mugs every day. They have also done well in the dishwasher #top tray.#
I'm going to buy another set so I don't have to wash them so often!
