What Are Camping Mugs Made Of?
Camping Mugs can be made of a variety of materials including stainless steel, ceramic, plastic, and enamel. Here’s a breakdown of the different types of camping coffee mugs.
- Stainless steel camping mugs- Stainless steel mugs are the most durable material of the three since it doesn’t crack or break when used frequently. It has great heat retention especially if it’s double-walled and vacuum insulated. One issue about stainless steel is the metallic taste that can ruin a good cup of coffee or drinks you put on it.
- Ceramic camping mugs-While ceramic coffee mugs are the most commonly used household coffee mug, they are not the best for camping as they tend to crack, break, or chip easily.
- Plastic camping mugs– Fairly durable and cheaper compared to the other two materials, but camping mugs made of plastics tend to wear out quickly and can also crack or break over time. Plastic mugs are also terrible at insulating your beverages so making them not very well suited as a coffee mug.
- Enamel Coffee Mugs- Enamel mugs or enamel cups are made of steel or metal as a base and coated with a ceramic glaze. Enamel is produced by combining melted and fused glass powder and fired with additive pigments under a specific temperature. The outside enamel coating is what makes it rust-resistant and can hold heat well without cracking or breaking.
Why Are Enamel Mugs Good For Camping?
Enamel coffee mugs make great camping coffee mugs and there are a ton of cute options that you can personalize. Before we share some of the caping coffee mugs we found, here are some of the reasons we believe enamel mugs are the best choice for personalized camping coffee mugs.
- Enamel mugs are lightweight! Making them a good choice as a camping or travel mug in general.
- Rust resistant
- They are stackable which helps save space since packing for a camping trip is often tight.
- Clean and sanitary to use
