Useful Information

Mug Details ☕️

Can this mug hold hot liquids? Yes. Made of 100% Borosilicate glass, The Original Melanin Beaker™ Mug can be heated to 325ºF and then immediately cooled to freezing. We only recommend using this beaker mug for mug-type things and not really beaker-type things, however.

Is this mug microwave and dishwasher safe? The Original Melanin Beaker™ Mug™ is microwave safe, however, we suggest hand-washing the mug to preserve the design.

How much coffee can this mug hold?  A Tall caramel macchiato with extra whip. In other words, a full 14-ounce cup of coffee with room for mix-ins. (We listened to your feedback and upgraded from the 8oz mug pictured above to 14oz without changing the price, because we love coffee and we love you.)

Etc. 📝

Borosilicate glass is different from porcelain and other materials manufacturers use to make coffee mugs. As a result, your coffee may cool more quickly, and your mug may feel warmer than most run-of-the-mill mugs. The material used in The Original Melanin Beaker™ Mug™ is scientifically tested to stand up to a number of lab conditions, however, we only recommend typical household use.
