Enameled Metal Mugs:

The technique of enameling has been there since times immemorial. Enamel or vitreous enamel is made by fusing together powdered glass and an object by firing them between 750 and 850 degrees celsius. The powdered glass melts and hardens to form a plain and lasting coating on the metal. Enameled metal mugs are thus durable and come in a wide range of shapes and sizes. Enameled metal is becoming popular these days because of its modern look.
