Loved it till the "rubber" rings came off
on January 15, 2011
For a few glorious weeks, it was the Holy Grail of travel mugs.
After a month of use, it started dribbling coffee onto my clothes. A stranger at a conference saw me using this mug gingerly, and we commiserated. There are rubber-like gaskets that must be in place in 2 spots to keep mug from leaking. Rings came off within a month; big surprise. We had recommended the mug to friends; some lost the gaskets entirely before they knew rings had detached. I see now that my experience was not unique. I always washed by hand, so that is not the problem.
Do I want to CrazyGlue the gaskets to the plastic, and continue to drink hot coffee or tea? Not worth the time and trouble to return, and you don't buy a replacement if the first one has flaws. But it was such a GOOOD mug for those days......
