Mugs mean mugs with large handles. Because it’s called mugs in English, it translates as mugs.
Mug is a general term for ceramic cup with handle, but it is not entirely ceramic cup, because in addition to the common ceramic materials, mugs also have plastic, enamel, stainless steel, glass and so on. And the general white porcelain cup has the following differences:

Because the principle of microwave heating is the same, therefore, enamel can not be put into the microwave. Microwave ovens generate electrical sparks and reflect microwaves as they heat, creating electronic eddies. But, the special container such as heat-resistant glass and heat-resistant ceramics that designs for microwave oven is ok. Be careful not to put porcelain cups and bowls with metal edges (as long as they reflect), otherwise there will be sparks, which will do great damage to the microwave oven.
