What people are saying

There are more than 34, 200 customer ratings and reviews to check out online if you're interested in adding this plug-in mug warmer to your WFH set-up or bringing to your office. 

Many Amazon shoppers have said they rely on this mug warmer to help keep their home brew or coffee-to-go warm so that they can enjoy it while they work, study or read the paper. 

One shopper said they purchased the mug warmer for their "forgetful" husband who would reheat his coffee in the microwave and forget about it altogether. Now, thanks to the mug warmer, he can "keep his beverage at good drinking temperature" and finish his drink entirely.

“Hot enough to keep a full cup hot,” one shopper wrote, admitting they were initially skeptical about the gadget. "I'm super happy with the product."

"Other shoppers have said it “spares them many trips to the microwave” and helps them enjoy their drink without feeling rushed.

“No more cold coffee!” another said, adding that it’s the perfect addition to any home office set-up.

One thing many Amazon shoppers have noted about the Mr. Coffee Mug Warmer is that it doesn't have an automatic shut-off feature. Many have said that they've forgotten that the mug warmer was on, long after they've finished their drink. However, the little light indicator is a reminder that it's still in use. 

Others have noted that the unit itself can scratch easily — so you'll have to be careful when cleaning or transporting the mug warmer to prevent scuffs. 

Verdict

If you're someone who likes to take their time with their coffee and tea and find yourself constantly reheating your drink in the microwave, Mr. Coffee's Mug Warmer might be for you. Not only does it help you enjoy your drink the way it was intended to taste, but prevents you from taking multiple trips to the coffee maker or microwave for a refresh.

However, you'll have to be diligent that you don't forget to turn off or unplug your warmer, since there's no automatic shut-off feature.
