We love our Anchor Hocking mugs!


We added a few more Anchor Hocking mugs to our collection, and as you can see, use them for all beverages not just coffee. We started with 6 of the larger mugs on the left about 6 months ago. I really, really like them! My Husband has a tendency to take them to his shop & leave a few out there, takes them on the go as travel mugs even so has broke a couple & usually a couple are missing. So I ordered 4 of the Rio mugs on the right, a bit smaller, but still a nice size for a cup of coffee, or juice, or water. They were $2.89 each on Amazon, a price I can definitely live with! My plates & bowls are holding up really well so far, and hopefully soon we’ll be getting a dishwasher & I expect them to do even better in there vs getting clinked around in a sink full of dishes. VERY happy with my Anchorware, proudly made in Ohio, completely free of lead, cadmium and other heavy metals, and very affordable!

    I just started using all glass dinnerware and I also wanted all glass mugs versus ceramic due to lead. Did you ask the company if their stuff is lead free because I heard just because it is all glass doesn’t mean it wont contain lead. I bought my dishes from amazon the brand was Bormioli Rocco and they are very nice and I contacted the company prior to make sure it didn’t have lead or cadmium. Next I will be looking for a safe coffee maker to get away from the plastic. Do you know of any good ones that are glass? thanks

      Yes Lisa, all Anchor Hocking glassware is lead-free. Chemex is the only glass, made in USA coffee maker I know of, and several of my page have them & report loving them: http://amzn.to/1EmUgDh

      I use an all stainless, electric percolator & just LOVE it. It makes the best, hottest, most wonderful tasting coffee I’ve ever made at home. Only downside is it’s not US made. But NO plastic! Here’s a link to it on Amazon, although I got mine at my local hardware store a couple years ago: http://amzn.to/1xuhOBt

    Do you have a recommendation for a lead free mixer?

    So glad the coffee maker recommendations were also on here, The one I got for my birthday which was just last August shows the quality there,
    broke. It was a Mr. Coffee, so I can only imagine how bad it is anyways. Just ordered the other one off amazon, so glad there is a stainless option
