Deformable cup / cup

Deformable cup
Deformable cup

When filled with hot drinks, cups are usually difficult to catch. Deformable cup is made of a kind of plastic that can deformat while heated. When filled with hot drinks, the rim of the cup will bend outwards, leaving space for your fingers to put, so that you can catch the hot cup more easily. The rim will recover to normal when the drink cools down.
