Cath Kidston Stars Crush Mug
Advantages: Cheerful design. Oversize. OK in diswasher. Fine china.
Disadvantages: There are cheaper cheerful mugs. Does chip.
It's funny that I came across this product on Dooyoo as I'm sat here drinking a cup of coffee from this very mug - the Cath Kidston Stars Crush Mug. I wouldn't normally search for a product like this as I generally think that there is not enough to say about products like this, but as it is right in front of me, it seemed like too big a coincidence to ignore. I can't remember how much I bought this mug for, but I do know that they are on Amazon at the moment for £4 - which, considering it is a Cath Kidston design does not seem too bad to me (although clearly there are other appealing mugs on the market for considerably cheaper than this!).
The first thing to say about this product is that is a very large mug - the size of which does not seem very apparent in the photo above. However, it is large and will contain up to 530 mls of fluid - compared to most mugs which hold between 230 - 400 mls of fluid. Therefore, if you want to make a big cup of coffee where you haven't got to get up for a refill then this mug might be for you. I have heard some say that they don't really get the benefit of being able to put more fluid into the mug as by the time they get to the bottom, the water is cold. However, I haven't found this at all and I have found that the mug has held the temperature relatively well and by the time I get to the bottom third of the mug, the drink is still warm and perfectly okay to drink. I guess it depends on how quickly you drink! The only thing I would say is that the mug, when completely full, is quite heavy and so it would be beneficial to have a second handle on the other side to help lift and steady it.
The mug has a white background and is covered in different coloured stars (red, green, yellow, blue, pink) of various sizes. The colours are bold and bright and the overall design is appealing but classically simple in typical Cath Kidston design. There is a handle on one side of the mug - which could do with being a little thicker - and, like I said, the mug could do with having another handle on the other side. The mug is manufactured from fine china and so is of good quality - although as all china, it is subject to chipping, as my mug testifies.
I have put this mug into the diswasher many times and it has not been damaged by doing so.
Overall, this is a nice oversize mug with a classic and cheerful design.
Summary: A nice mug.
