Product Description

Color: Blue

The Thermos brand is well known as the quality and performance leader in insulated food and beverage products. The Stainless King series creates a new chapter in Thermos' storied history with a modern line that blends out newest technology with a dash of the past.

Why Thermos?

An ideal choice for people on the go, the Stainless King Vacuum Insulated Travel Tumbler is built to last and loaded with features to make for a more enjoyable drinking experience. Thermos vacuum insulation technology virtually eliminates temperature change within the beverage container by creating an airless space between two stainless steel walls. The result is an insulation layer that performs better than any other. A superior insulated container you can depend on to keep your beverages hotter, colder, fresher, longer. This travel tumbler keeps beverages hot for 5 hours or cold for 9, making it a great choice for long days out and about or in the office.

Features and Benefits

Constructed with double wall stainless steel, this 16 ounce travel tumbler is virtually unbreakable, yet its sleek design is both eye-catching and functional. The contoured body shape is easy to grip and fits most automobile cup holders.

For tea drinkers, a built-in tea hook is just the ticket to brew tea on the go. The tea hook can also accommodate most loose leaf infusers.

Recommended Tip for Maximum Beverage Enjoyment

In order to maximize the incredible insulation technology, it is recommended to either pre-chill or pre-heat the travel tumbler just prior to use. This can be accomplished by filling the tumbler with cold or hot tap water, attaching the lid and letting it rest for a few minutes. Before you are ready to use, simply empty the water and fill with your favorite beverage. Attaching the lid will further increase the thermal efficiency.

Leak-Proof and Worry-Free

The Stainless King Travel Tumbler comes equipped with a 100% leak-proof DrinkLock sealing lid which operates simply by pushing the lever 45 degrees right or left to open and close. And because of the double wall insulation, the stainless steel body stays cool to the touch with hot beverages and condensation-free with cold beverages.

The Stainless King Vacuum Insulated Travel Tumbler is made of BPA-free materials and is backed by a five-year limited warranty.

I've owned roughly 15 Coffee mugs over the last 10 years (Contigo, Trudeau, other Thermos, etc.), always searching for one that could keep my daily coffee hot for more than 2 hours. This is by far the best mug I have ever owned.

Pros:
The double-wall insulation keeps the coffee hot for HOURS on end. One trick I learned is that if you put boiling water in the mug for 5-10 Minutes prior to putting your coffee in, it will keep even longer, I'm talking upwards of 8 hours.

This is the 1st mug I've owned that is truly is leak - proof. I sometimes put milk and sugar in with my coffee. When I got this mug, I simply add both in and close it and shake it to stir, and have not had a single spill.

The cover to the mug also comes part in 5 pieces that are easy to disassemble and reassemble. I've had numerous mugs that end up with a bad smell because the top gets coffee or milk trapped in it and festers. This mug let's you take apart the cover and clean it thoroughly.

Cons:
To echo another review, the handle is the only weak point of the mug. I had it for 4 weeks and returned the mug twice because of broken handles, and gave up when the 3rd one broke and took it off. Hoping that Thermos redesigns this mug with a better handle in the future...this is the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 stars.

Overall, great mug and despite the handle, will definitely purchase again in the future, highly recommended.

This product keeps it hot or cold for the period it says on the label. It is also leak proof.

Crack in handle happens a lot and its just made of black plastic on outside and hollow inside.That is the weakest part of this item so my rating drops to 3 star. This handle seriously needs some redesign with a stronger handle.

Do not put in a dishwasher since the extreme heat may cause the handle to crack much quicker than you would expect.

Your smartest choice would be to buy the other kind with no handle before you buy this item.

If you are deciding whether or not to purchase this coffee mug, don't think twice just buy it. As a retired Navy man I have owned too many mugs to count. I have taken them with me all over the world. Most mugs just do not keep cofee hot and many of them will leak when you go to take a sip. Not a good thing when you're in a full dress white uniform. No dribbles from this mug, and it does not leak when the lid is in the closed possition. I have filled this up with coffee before leaving for work and left it unattended on my desk for over four hours. Then when I took a sip expecting it to be room temperature, I actually burned my mouth. It does not leak when the lid is in the closed possition and is easy to drink from without spilling. I would highly recomend this cup to anyone looking to purchase a mug for the office or travel. The handle is a little light weight, but fine if you don't abuse or drop it from more than maybe six feet. Great for home, office or traveling. Thumbs up Thermos!

Color Name: Blue
I picked this up at Target locally, and I too was a little concerned that the handle might be a problem. However after a month of daily use and going into the dishwasher (and getting droped a couple times), it performs great. Keeps things hot for 4-5 hours without a problem. Handle has held up well enough, although if you're concerned, they make a model without a handle. I've also seen models at Target recently in a steel grey color which they call "Smoke".

This is replacing my 10-year old Zojirushi Tuff Road which started to leak from the plastic seal, and this feels better made. I expect it will last a long time.

EDIT: 10/16/11... I've been using this over a year now, and it's been great. The handle has been a non-issue for me. No water has gotten stuck in it from the dishwasher. However, the paint has chipped badly. If I bought another one, I would just get the stainless steel, and mine is currently half blue and half stainless. For that reason I've dropped it down to 4 stars.

I was going to buy this mug, and went to Target to take a look at it. The previous reviewers are right - the biggest problem with this mug is the handle. All 6 or 7 mugs on display at Target had cracks in the handles! Unbelievable! The mug itself is really great, so I am going to buy the one without a handle.

Color Name: Blue
Great mug at first, durable, keeps my my coffee nice and hot for a long time. They really need some rubber at the bottom to keep the mug from slipping off the airplane tray table. But I can live with this. The reason for the 1 star is that the rubber seal in the top gave out. It's been only 6 months, occasional use, always hand washed this thing. Right now the mug is completely unusable as I spilled coffee over myself right in the middle of a meeting with the top screwed on tightly.

On to a different brand for me...

Thermos Stainless King 16-Ounce Leak- Proof Travel Mug with Handle, Midnight BlueI purchased about a half dozen of these mugs, at first I thought they were great. I have had to return 4 for handles that are broken. They do keep the coffee hot for hours, but the handles crack along the flow lines. I hand wash these mugs and we are very careful of handling any mugs as they are very expensive, but the major flaw is the broken/cracked handles. I still am in the process of replacement. The last complaint still has not been answered by Amazon. I also bought 2 Thermos bottles that go with the mugs and they are great. They keep coffee hot for hours with no issues.
