I make my tea about 45 minutes before I begin drinking it and the tea is still hot by then. So it's a decent insulator as well.
PROS: It's well-constructed and feels high quality; the top screws on securely; it NEVER leaks (major pro!!); it's a great color, and it can go in the microwave and dishwasher. The surface is grippier than shiny plastic, so it's easy to hold onto.
CONS: It doesn't keep drinks hot for a very long time...not an issue for me as I'm typically only using it while in the car, and drinking my coffee right away. As other users mentioned, when you flip the lid back and take a drink out of it, the flipped lid sometimes touches your nose, potentially leaving a drop of coffee behind. I hadn't even thought of it until I saw it mentioned in another review and realized, yep, mine does that. Last con, after several months of use the clear silicone/rubber tubing around the top of my mug's lid threads (which creates the airtight seal) seems to have gotten discolored - can't tell if it's just coffee discoloration, or if mold has started growing from not being able to air out under there. Needless to say, won't be drinking out of it until I can pry it off and see - which looks like it won't be an easy thing to do.
Generally, I've been really happy with this mug and would buy again.
I have run these mugs through the dishwasher many times, toss them in the microwave regularly (per the instructions, without the lid), and have on occasion lost track of one and had to deep-clean the icky result - but they're still like new and don't leak (unless you get the threads wet while closing it, in which case drying the threads and re-closing the mug fixes the problem.
It does not insulate as well as one might hope. If I fill it with scalding liquid right before heading out the door, by the time I'm ready to drink it about 15 minutes later, it's really only lukewarm. I haven't owned very many to-go mugs before so I don't know what the standard is, but I don't think staying hot for 15 minutes is too much to ask for.
All of this aside, it's still not a bad mug, especially if you use it for drinking as you head out the door, and not to save for later. However, there is one design flaw that just drives me absolutely bonkers and has turned out to be a deal breaker for me. When you snap open the vent on the top to take a drink, the latch pokes you right in the nose! Since it doesn't hold heat well, I close it after every sip which means every time I reopen it I get coffee/condensation on my nose. I would say I have a smaller-than-average sized nose, so if this affects me it is likely to affect most people. The reviews on the Target website focus on the nose-poking latch so I'm surprised no one else has mentioned it on here.
So, I did a few tests:
#1: Does it spill? Does it drip? I filled it with 16 oz of HOT water, screwed the cap on (avoiding getting the threads wet), and shook it upside-down and at a 90 degree angle VORACIOUSLY. No spills, no drips.
#2: Does it fit in my ridiculously tiny cup holders (2003 Saturn Ion)? Yes! Yes, it does.
#3: How long will things stay drinkably hot? A good while. If it's full, and the container is heated beforehand (I always do this) it'll stay hot (as in, actually hot) for at least two hours, probably warm for a few hours more. If it's not full, it'll stay warm for at least 3.
#4: Will it fit under the dispenser in my coffee maker (a 6-cup Brewstation)? No. If I drag the coffee maker to the edge of the counter I can manage it, but it's not easy. But it's much more important (to me, at least) that it fit in my cup holders, so I'll live with dispensing into a pyrex cup and then pouring into the tumbler.
#5: Is it top-heavy? Not really. But I'm a klutz, and if I can, I probably will knock it over at some point, so...
#6: If I drop it, will it bust open and throw my delicious beverage everywhere? NOPE! It all stayed in the cup, and I didn't have to get my mop. This was more of an accidental test, but it's important to know none-the-less.
#7: Is it aesthetically pleasing? Definitely. It's also got a good texture and grip-feel.
I'm probably going to buy several more of these.
