Today I’m reviewing the Muggi.
The Muggi is plastic four cup holder. Originally it was created to be used on yachts. It has grippy rubber feet to stop it falling off surfaces in high seas.
I have to be honest when I first saw it I thought it was a bit of gimmick. But then I thought about it. How often had I been asked to do the coffee run at university? How often had I thought about helping out with hot drinks when I had guests over, only to realise that not only could I not manage the the kettle, but I couldn’t bring the drinks through to the living room? What about when I wanted to bring the drinks over when I’d gone to a cafe with friends? Actually it has a lot of uses – perfect space for a few biscuits with you cuppa, or even a cheeky cupcake!
How it worked
When I first used it I didn’t think it would be easy to carry 3 or 4 mugs just in the one hand. Normally a cup of tea will be half full by the time I get to where I was sitting, if I am carrying it! But with the Muggi I only spilled the tiniest drop. Even better, it stayed within the Muggi meaning no major clean up and no scolded hands)! It’s also ergonomically shaped so no hurting wrists! I also tested it with coffee cups on my lap when using my wheelchair going to a coffee shop. It worked so much better than either struggling with a tray or holding one in my hand and doing it in several runs. The grippy feet are great for giving you two hands free for getting a manual wheelchair around!
It’s made from very durable plastic. Muggi’s inventor David ‘Trotski’ Trotter demonstrated just how durable it is to me by jumping on it at Naidex! So no worries about it cracking if it’s dropped! It’s actually so durable, it’s microwave and dishwasher safe, and comes with an 88 year guarantee!
It comes in 7 different colours – red, green, pink, blue, grey, black and purple. They’re fully recyclable, and the black Muggi is also made from recycled material.
I honestly feel that these should be mandatory for cafes to make them more accessible. At only £9.95, it’s a cost effective way to radically change the experience of cafes for those with disabilities. Muggi can be purchased here.
