It keeps coffee hot for hours.

Twisting to lock/open the very top which you sip from has saved my drink from spilling for it is twist tight.

I actually spent about an hour researching my coffee travel mug purchase. I had four criteria that were must-haves:

1. It had to be a mug that I could drink directly from... not a thermos with a separate cup for instance.

2. Stainless steel interior: I found that my current plastic cup was retaining too much sour milk odor even thought I rinsed it out after use. Also although the chance is slim, metal is less likely to leach dangerous chemicals than plastic.

3. Sealed: as in throw it in my bag and not worry what orientation it is in...upside down.... whatever.

4. 16 oz: or more... many travel mugs are 12 oz and that is just too small

This item that you are looking at on this very Amazon detail page indeed meets all the criteria above. It is surprisingly one of few that do.

Once I bought this, I found some other advantages that I liked about it:

- The thermal insulation is superb. Hot liquids stay hot seemingly forever. (it's actually a minor problem if you start out too hot as it takes forever to cool to sipping temperature :-), but removing the lid helps out there)

- 360 degree drink lid: This lets you drink from anywhere around the rim of the cup, but more importantly the design is such that it closely approaches drinking from a normal (un-lidded) cup. So no dribbly holes to drink from and no uneven dispensing due to trapped air.

- easy to clean lid: There are no hidden channels in lid where liquid might get trapped. This apparently si a problem with

I've never felt this way about a thermal mug before, but when I first laid eyes on this mug, I knew my long search was over. This mug delivers as promised, and has everything that I value.

- Solid construction means that this will last for years.
- Quality thermal sealing retains hot and cold temperature.
- Tight seal is truly spill-proof.
- Stainless steel looks very eye-catching.
- Bonus caribiner makes this easy to carry.

A few words on getting the most out of this product.

As my pictures show, it is a bit cumbersome to clean. Get a bottle brush and clean it thoroughly as soon as you are done with it. I use this mug exclusively for teas with NO milk.

The seal is superbly tight -- I can hold this over my head when closed and have no fear of getting drenched. The seal forms SO well that when you unscrew the mug for your first sip, you will probably hear a little pop.

I usually get about 3 hours of "hot", with up to 6 hours of "warm". Cold lasts much longer (as long as 6 hours of "icy" with another 4 hours of "cool".

You can extend the length of the thermal retention by "priming" the mug in advance with hot or cold. While my tea is steeping in the morning, I pour boiling hot water into the mug to start the heat retention. If you close the flow after each sip, you will probably extend temperature retention for even longer.

I expect to use this for years to come. At this point, I've been using it 4 or 5 times a week for 6 months, and have no complaints.

No . . . not that. But with my other home-to-office travel mug, inevitably as I slid behind the wheel, holding my mug tightly, I'd bump something and splash steaming coffee all over my pants. No longer. Not only does this Travel Mug keep the coffee hot for hours, it seals so tightly I can hold it upside down, even toss it into the passenger seat, and no spills! Construction is outstanding. The only drawback (and reason for four stars instead of five) is that the top is a little tricky to put on straight and screw down, and it takes some practice to unscrew it just the right amount for convenient sipping. A word of caution -- it keeps the coffee so hot that the first sip can burn your lip! I've learned to let the coffee cool to drinking temperature before I seal it up for the trip to the office, or anywhere else.

This mug is without question the best I've ever used for my coffee while on the way to and at work. I've tried quite a few others, and this is absolutely a fantastic product! It keeps coffee hot for hours, does not leak or dribble, and the drink from any angle top shows that someone actually thought about it in the design process. I can't speak highly enough about this mug! I have the mug, and will be ordering the 20oz E5 beverage bottle and also the tumbler in the very near future! FANTASTIC product!!!!

This mug is so much better than any other travel mug I've ever used for coffee and tea. First of all, it retains temperature extremely well - as other reviewers have noted, you should let a hot beverage cool to a drinkable temperature before putting the top on. For my coffee this is not a problem, as the milk I add brings it to a nice temperature, but I do have to leave the top off or add an ice cube to tea. I've done the same with previous thermoses I've owned, but usually you pour those into a cap where you can blow/cool the liquid, whereas with this product its so easy to just drink the piping hot liquid straight out of the thermos - its also easy to scald one's lips. Which brings me to the best design feature - the 360 lid. So simple. It really feels like drinking out of a mug.

The product comes with a carabiner for clipping onto a bag, but its so leakproof that if there's room in my bag I just toss it in!

Significantly, this is one of the few stainless travel mugs I have seen that says its safe to go in the dishwasher. Since the coffee stains the inside of any cup and mucks up the top, I always put travel mugs in the dishwasher and have had to discard many where water got into the "vacuum" space (icky). With the solid Thermos construction I don't anticipate any problems, but its nice to have their guarantee.

This mug's design is just short of perfect. My only complaint is aesthetic - the yellow trim makes it so "hardware" looking. I would have preferred all black. And initially, I thought the "shock-absorbing" bottom was overkill, but it really does give stability to the base on a desk and avoids the bonky sound/feel that a normal thermos makes when you set it on a hard surface. Even such small things make this mug a pleasure to use. I bought two.
