A red plastic Ikea beaker.

A beaker is a beverage container, and a term used in parts of the UK. A beaker is typically a non-disposable plastic or ceramic cup or mug without a handle, much like a laboratory beaker.

Beaker is particularly commonly used to describe a lidded cup designed for toddlers or small children, with a no-spill mouthpiece incorporated into the lid.

In North American English, the term is almost exclusively used in the laboratory context.
