We love the trigger mugs. The blue color is nice

Long time trigger mug fan
Oct 29, 2022  |  By Sandra B., Alexandria, VA
We've been using trigger mugs for decades-- always in the blue agate glaze. When one broke, I replaced it with 3, so now we have 10 of them! The handles make them easy and comfortable to hold.

My parents started it, and then us, and now our kids - We all insist on the Bennington Trigger Mugs for the morning coffee. (still waiting for another run of the Agate Pink)

We have had several trigger mugs, but one broke recently. So I ordered 2 more for my husband. He has arthritis in his fingers and finds the trigger very easy and painless to hold as compared to regular mugs. But frankly, we all enjoy their look, utility, and craftsmanship!

Best mug ever...Holds Up Really Well, Looks Nice and it's easy to Hold!!

An old goody!
Apr 17, 2022  |  By Vanessa, Weehawken, NJ
About 20 years ago I purchased one of my favorite mugs from a little home shop near Harrisburg PA. Last month my one year old broke said mug and my heart broke a little too. Immediately I looked at the bottoms of the mug to see if I could find the maker and by some chance that same mug. Well I was delighted to find the website for Bennington and not only my same mug in the same color I had bought so long ago but a ton of other pieces to go with it. The mug arrived and besides the break could not tell the difference between the old and the new ...
Impressed with the consistency over 20 years. The quality is great and found more things I look forward to purchasing!

Awesome mugs

The Trigger Mugs I received in both Blue Agate &Morning Glory Blue are outstanding! They perfectly tied and very balanced and comfortable to hold. The colors are spectacular. I highly recommend these amazing quality, artisan mugs!

Trigger Mugs
Mar 3, 2022  |  By Adam, Cincinnati, OH
When we bought our house, the prior owner left some kitchen stuff for us to decide to keep or not. One of the items was a trigger mug. I love this mug, but it developed a small crack in the side over time. So i realized this was a stamped mug and went online to Bennington's website and ordered more. They are the perfect size for my morning espresso drink, and also for a little more coffee after!

Form and Function
Feb 9, 2022  |  By Orpha, Hebo, OR
I grew up with these mugs in the 60's and 70's. My parents were coffee drinkers and these were our house mugs. Having lost both of my parents in the last three years, I have been feeling sentimental about my childhood. I ordered a set of the Trigger Mugs thinking they would feel like a souvenir, of sorts, of my childhood. They are a lot more than that.

I love these mugs. Every time I look at them, I smile. They are a great size and the matte glaze, straight sides and trigger handle give this mug a timeless, cool silhouette. The rim is sized to perfection, so its comfortable to sip from and there's no drips. They are a souvenir of my youth, for sure, but even better I love them as much as my parents did.

I was thrilled to see that the potters are still offering ths clssic mug. I bought 8 many years ago and 2 of them needed to be replaced. I never dreamed that they would still be made. They are the best.

Growing up, my grandparents had many trigger mugs with different patterns. It wasn't until I got older and was passed down only a few remaining that I decided to look into Bennington Potters to add more trigger mugs to the ones I'd been handed down. The trigger mug is more than just an exceptionally functional and comfortable mug. It's many memories of my childhood and I don't think I shall ever be without one.

These mugs are a beautiful, fun take on a classic old-world style. Please bring back the wider, shorter version too!! There's no better way to cool off coffee and tea a bit faster and loved the sturdy feeling of those.

I was introduced
to this mug in the 1960s as something to hold my milk and hot cocoa. It's still my favorite mug! Great design, great glazes and a beautiful and classy addition to any table. I still love the white and black satin glazes.....! So exquisite.

I have arthritis and have difficulty holding a regular mug. I have had your trigger mugs for about 15 years. I have chipped or broken all but one and that is why I just ordered four more. I feel confident when I am able to drink my coffee or tea from these mugs vs. a regular mug. They are wonderful!

Love these mugs! I bought my first ones at a store probably 25 years ago. They had solid blue ones and rust-colored ones.(Not trigger handles) I still have one of the blue ones but when I couldn't get them any more, moved on to the trigger handles ones. I also have the tankard mugs for the men, who seem to appreciate that rugged item more.

We always stopped at Bennington Potters when we went to visit my grandmother in Upstate NY, we were coming from the Cape, it was a nice stretch and my mom always bought a piece or two. My dad loved the trigger mug, it was his favorite and everytime I use my set I smile and think of him. His favorite mug is now my favorite and hopefully my daughter will feel the same some day.

I love everything about these mugs. The 2 finger handle is unique and very comfortable to hold. The quality in this pottery is superb! I started with a fluted pie plate and square baker, and I now have several pieces. The mixing bowl with spout and handle is so easy to use and seems to be the right size for so many cooking and baking needs.

I have loved the Bennington trigger mug since buying some in the 80's. When the inside was white, and there were more colors (like pink - loved the pink). And light blue. But the size of the cup and 2 finger grip are perfect.

Jan 4, 2020  |  By Janny M., Albany, NY
I bought two different colors, each with the hot chocolate bottles, to give to my 9 yr and 6 yr old grandchildren. They love having a mug to call their own. The 11 oz. size is just right for their idea of a big mug of hot chocolate, and the trigger handles provide a steady grip for young fingers. The glaze colors are beautiful. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Treasured Classics

Our original Bennington Potters 'Trigger Mugs' have held our coffees and every beverage - Yes, even 'spirited' - at our homes in Vermont and Connecticut since the early Seventies . . . time to replenish our stock to serve further generations - an American 'classic' design! Form follows function! Perfect.

I recently bought three more. Love the classic white on white with glossy glaze, over the satin glaze. My parents had trigger mugs at their camp when I was a kid so I have been using them for 50+ years. They were thinner pottery then, some with diagonal geometric glaze patterns. The current splatter glazes are nice also.

Almost 60 years ago we bought 6 trigger handle mugs in Burlington. We have one remaining with a small chip. When I learned they were still available, I ordered 6. 4 for our daughter's forthcoming marriage in the school colors of green and white (MSU) and gold and brown (WMU). The remaining two for us are yellow and blue (U of M)....go Blu! My morning coffee tastes so good in my blue trigger handle mug!

These are my wife's morning favorite for her coffee. Just the right size and balance, and they keep the liquid hot longer than other cups she has used. We bought two of the about 20 years ago. One of them broke recently, so she has babied the one remaining. I was happy to see that Bennington Potters still make them, and that they are the same quality

the high quality standards in materials being used is what drove my purchase. the cool design and color choices made me even happier! the trigger mug is so nice to hold and it's simplicity in design is super appealing. i'm excited to start building my collection of bennington pottery!

Care and Feeding of your Trigger Mugs
May 16, 2019  |  By Ed K., North Attleboro, MA
We originally bought these mugs in the summer of 2012 at the store in Bennington. We have bought replacements on two occasions. The first replacements (Element Green) were a little lighter than our originals. For the second reorder we asked for darker mugs and those shipped were a perfect match.
Both times we were replacing mugs for chips on the rim, It finally dawned on me that the shelf where they were stored is crowded and the rims would clink whenever they were being put away. So we relocated a couple of items to make sure they would not bang into each other. So far, so good.

We love the design of our new trigger mug. Very comfortable to grasp. The description said it holds 11 oz. capacity. We find it only holds 9 oz. tops. Not a problem as long as we set our coffee maker on a lower setting.

A trigger mug was one of the purchases which broke recently with much sadness on my end. A new trigger mug was purchased to add to my collection.
Just love every piece I own!

A must mug!

Great glazing, weight and perfect handle. I got one in the late 90's from an antique store in California. It broke in 2004 --it took 14 years to think to look on the internet and reunite me with my favorite mug and Bennington potters.

Love Bennington

Love the Bennington pottery. The color goes well in my country home.

Family favorite

Our family has had trigger mugs for years. When my son was ten and visiting grandparents in NH, he told my mom he liked her mugs and drank everything from one every day. She sent him home with one. Now he's 29 and asked what happened to Grandma's mugs. He has the only one so I ordered a couple for him for Christmas. Today I found out my cousins have a set of dishes including some mugs!
I love the finish of your dishes.

My Absolute Favorite Mugs!

You cannot go wrong with these mugs! I bought 2 as seconds at the physical store in VT 4 years ago, and they are still looking great. Unique design, love the different ways I can comfortably hold the cup in my hand.

LOVE these mugs!

I purchased two of the trigger mugs when I visited earlier this year. My tea has never tasted better than it does in these mugs. It also seems to stay warmer longer. I broke both of them recently, so I am ordering more!

In it for the long haul

I've had six of the blue agate trigger mugs for at least 30 years now - the original six with no crazing, nicks, or roughness and they're used a lot. There are a number of other Bennington products in my home but these mugs are absolutely the best.
