JayADee: I'm also pretty fussy about mugs and even bowls. :)

 

 

 

I agree, bowls can be variable. I definitely favour something I get used to. My wife, couldn't get less.

gzt: Ideally cups would have a special rating system to indicate how long they keep drinks hot in different temperature conditions. Too short fail, too long fail : ). Also there would be summer cups and winter cups. Technically they are all mini mugs rather than cups. ; ).

 

I once had a coffee mug, that had a hollow handle, dumb idea, ouch.

Geektastic: Making tea is primarily about the length of time you brew. 4 minutes usually works for me. On a proper timer not guessed!

 

You time it on a timer and then say it usually works for you. And when it doesn't, was the timer off?

I have a kettle that is programmable which is nice. Keeps the water at a specific temperature.

Could be the tea leaves. How fresh or whatever.
Doesn't seem to taste the same as it used to. :p

Plus the size matters. Hubby picked up two hand made bowls at a SPCA fund raiser that I love. They are just the perfect size for an individual garden salad or desert and they have a really nice glaze. I don't like having a bowl too big for what you put in it.

Im more picky about plates. Can't stand ones that are all rim with a tiny food area in the middle like overpriced resturants use to make things look nice.

Totally agree.
I also don't like huge plates.

Hubby and I sometimes use metal pie plates for curries or other sloshy stuff because of the rims. it's a hold over from our wilderness camping days. Not when we have company!

About the hollow mug handle, that's a bit mind boggling.

Banana?

I'm picky about glasses. Dislike thick glass, not a fan of squared glasses. Have to have the right glass for beer and wines (although, I do quite enjoy a craft beer out of a decent red wine glass).

Just had breakfast at John's Kitchen and Takeaway off Lambton Quay, all their mugs looked very similar. Didn't think to ask where they got them.

I like to keep to my favourite mug, too. And the breakfast bowl!

Are you OK?

That's brave, If I did that I think I would wear the coffee container, the cup and spoon and possibly the kitchen sink tongue-out

You best hang onto it. A good thermal is very hard to find.
