I bought the 15 oz version, and it’s so pretty. I tested it by washing it six times with three different dishwasher soaps on the first day. Did it fade? Nope. It looked the same way it did when I opened the package. I heated up some tea in this cup in the microwave, and yes, it is microwave safe. The mug still looks brand new as when I first opened it four days ago–I mean it’s only been four days so I guess it still is brand new. I give this mug a 10 out of 10 (I dropped it three times, and it didn’t break but I might just be lucky).
