The outside is covered with stainless steel. The capacity of the mug is 24 ounces and it is sold as a set of two. According to the cost breakdown submitted with your request, the plastic accounts for 80 percent of the value and the stainless steel accounts for 20 percent of the value. Although similar in design to travel mugs, these mugs do not have lids.
