The Mr. Coffee mug warmer on a red background.

Warm coffee, warm hands. Two winter essentials.


What's cozier than a warm beverage on a cold winter's day? Not much. Some day's call for hot coffee that stays hot, no matter how long it takes you to get to the bottom of the mug.

Enter the Mr. Coffee mug warmer. At $20, it's been worth every penny in coffee enjoyment. And having something nearby to warm my hands through last year's cold, gray Michigan winter in a drafty old house was a huge bonus.

Admittedly, my warmer is showing some signs of wear after a year of heavy use. Some of the black finish on the warming element is chipping away to reveal bare metal below. It doesn't feel like it's built to withstand a ton of abuse, but I have no complaints after calling on its services for hours a day and months on end.

Mr. Coffee (it's not required to call it Mr. Coffee, but it feels like it is) will probably get less play now that I've moved to Arizona. But, whether it's a day with a low in the 20s or a low in the 60s, sometimes all I want is a warm beverage that stays warm.
