Just Your Cup of Tea: Creative Ways to Use Mugs

July 28th, 2017 | Food Safety

Mugs are something that are ‘safe gifts’ for people we’re acquainted with but don’t know well. Have a birthday party you’re invited to? Gift them a mug!

But gifting plain mugs can be a bit boring and when you have mugs stacked on your shelf, sometimes you wonder what you can do with them. You don’t want to let them sit there forever, but at the same time, you have no idea what to do with them.

There are ways to customize mugs and use them creatively. Here’s what you can do:

Cooling Racks

If you love baking, you know that once you take something out of the oven, you need to place it on a cooling rack. This helps cool down the temperature quickly so that you can start decorating. But if you don’t have a cooling rack, you can use mugs for the same purpose.

Baking Containers

Most baking recipes require baking trays and containers. But if you don’t have one, you can use mugs to get the job done. They’re ideal for brownies, cakes and even no-bake recipes, such as puddings and cheesecakes.

This also helps save bakers the hassle of cleaning up messes. Because mugs are easy to clean/wash, you don’t have to worry about the mess left behind on the kitchen counter. All you have to do is add all the ingredients into the mug and bake away!

Poached Egg Aid

It may be surprising but mugs can help you create the perfect poached eggs. How? You can gently slide them into the water. And the best part is, they don’t spill the egg whites; you don’t have to worry about creating a mess!

All-Around Cooking Tool

As you already know by now, mugs are a great tool for cooking. You can bake in some mugs and use them in other creative ways. But they’re also the ideal utensil for cooking foods in the microwave. This is because some mugs are microwave-resistant and have a holder attached, so you don’t have to worry about burning your hand.

Use Them as a Plant

Use them as a nice, decorative flower pot. You can place it in the kitchen and paint some mugs the way you want. It will keep the air fresh, and add to the interior of your kitchen!
