There is nothing better for lunch than a cup of hot soup, especially on a cold or rainy day! These Corningware Pop-In Mugs make heating soup in the microwave fast, easy, and without any mess. We received a set of the Pop-in Mugs several years ago as a gift. At the time, I had no idea how much I would end up enjoying these Corningware microwavable mugs. Not only are they microwavable, but they are dishwasher safe. Therefore, the entire meal from beginning to end is easier.
If I make a pot of soup or stew, I can fill and store the mugs in the refrigerator or freezer. When I am ready to reheat the soup, I simply pop the vent on the lid, stick it in the microwave, and heat. That plastic vented lid is the only cover needed to keep my microwave clean and clear of splatters or overflows.
At 20 ounces, it is also the perfect size for a can of soup. I enjoy Campbell's Tomato Soup. The mug would be large enough for the entire can contents as well as water. However, I don't add water to my tomato soup. I heat the soup in the microwave for 3 minutes and I'm ready to go. Because the mug handle is not hot, I can "drink" my tomato soup while continuing to work at my computer. I know it is best to take a real lunch break, but that is not always possible. It is nice to have a good hot lunch that I can easily eat/drink while working.
If I still worked outside of the home, it would be a very easy and
practical way to carry soup, stew, chili, etc to work for lunch, ready for
the microwave. The lid is tight enough that liquid will not spill,
although I wouldn't test it by turning it upside down for a prolonged
period of time.

The only downside that I have found to these mugs is that my tomato soup has stained the inside of one of our lids. No big deal for me. I know it is clean, but I suspect that would bother some people. I have tried baking soda, vinegar, soaking, and several stain removal suggestions, but none have removed the tomato soup stain on the lid.
|Old Versus New Corningware Designs|
The current day line of products are not always the same as the Corningware of 30 years ago. However, the items I have replaced with the newer version have been fine. I understand the new Pop-in Mugs have smaller handles than mine. Also, it seems manufacturing has moved to China. Mine were made in Thailand.
If you prefer the older versions, I recommend searching eBay for the older versions of CorningWare.
