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.


Insulated: Keeps hot for 5 hours or cold for 9 hours with Thermos vacuum insulation technology

Durable: Unbreakable stainless steel interior and exterior

High Quality Materials: 100% BPA-free

It keeps my coffee hot for hours.
Laura Harris
Leak Proof - This unit is truly leak proof, once the lever is moved to the closed position you can turn it upside down without spilling a drop.
B. Harrington
Dishwasher safe, and the lid is easy to take apart for a thorough clean.

I've been using travel mugs for years now and I've had some pretty good ones, but I've never had one that met all my criteria for a well designed travel mug until now. What makes this travel mug so great (and those that have been using travel mugs for a while will understand what I'm talking about) is:

- Keeps things HOT: This is travel mug 101, but not everyone does it well. This Thermos mug keeps my coffee hot for hours! Works exceeding well.

- Leak-Proof: This is another big one for me and this mug is indeed leak-proof. I filled it up and turned it upside down, shook it, rolled it, you name it, nothing leaked out.

- Cleaning: First, it's dishwasher safe; this is more uncommon than you would think. Second, you can take the lid apart to get at all the parts for cleaning so you don't get build-up in hard to reach corners of the lid over time, very nice! [NOTE: Paperwork that came with product said it was dishwasher safe, but on Thermos's web site (and Amazon product description) they specifically say NOT to put their "stainless steel vacuumware" products in the dishwasher and that they are NOT dishwasher safe. Not sure which is correct]

- Lid Design & Stainless Steel Lip: The stainless steel lip for sipping is more comfortable than plastic or rubber. Also, the design of the lid helps in preventing scalding hot liquid from getting to your mouth too fast.

- Doesn't have rubber smell: A rubbery smelling lid is a problem that is often overlooked and something I really don't like. This Thermos mug uses plastic, stainless steel and a rubber gasket in the lid. It doesn't have any smell when you drink from it, which is perfect!

I typically pour my coffee around 7:20am and by 8:45 it is ice cold and I never finish it. I have been through countless mugs, but none keep it warm, much less hot, for more than 45 minutes. I have been wanting a mug to keep my coffee hot for most of the morning, but my wife just said I drink it too slow. But along comes this king. WOW! This mug keeps my coffee hot, and I mean piping hot. I have made it to 11:45 with some coffee remaining and it was still very hot. I guess it would stay hot for an hour or two longer, but I never make it that long before I finish it. And the outside of the mug is cool / cold to the touch...you would never know it was hot inside.

Additionally, I wasn't really looking for a spill proof mug, but I have found it to be quite handy. I simply add creamer and sweetener, put on the lid and shake it up...100% leakproof. I even carry it in my bag. I coerced my wife to try it and she could not believe it. Needless to say, she bought one and we have thrown out the rest of our "wanna-be" coffee travel mugs. Totally worth the $$$.

This review has been updated. Be sure to read to the end.

I gave "two stars" because I have no idea how to average 5 stars for functionality, and 1 star for a fatal flaw that may not even apply to everyone. I have purchased two of these mugs from Amazon and owned them for two years. I must warn you about an issue that happened with both my mugs after about 6 months of use.

First, make no mistake - the functionality of the mug is superb. No springs to break down. The cap can be disassembled for a good cleaning. And hot? Wow. It keeps hot coffee HOT for hours and hours. I have left my mug in my car in 40 degree weather only to find the coffee still drinkably warm 6 hours later. On a warm day, my coffee is still hot when I get back to my car at the end of work 9 hours later!

Ah, but therein lies the rub -- leaving it in a hot car.

I do not know if it is the heat that builds up in the car, but with both mugs that I had purchased, within 6 months, the coating started to peel. Once the coating starts to peel, that's it, it's all over and your world becomes one of annoying paint flecks everywhere. Within a short time, you will have flakes of paint coming off in your hands or even worse, in your mouth.

I thought maybe this was a fluke with the first mug, which is why I bought the second one. But it happened with the second one as well. Why? I suspect it's because where I live in the Southwest, the interior of the car in summer gets to well over 120 degrees. I don't really know, but I know that it has happened with both mugs.

The only two options for me: scrape off all the remaining paint, or get a different product.

I used to be a big proponent of Trudeau's Drive-Time mug because it was leak-proof, kept my coffee hot for a couple of hours, and I liked the physical design. I used them for many years and "sold" a large number of them through recommendations to acquaintances who commented on mine. But their quality deteriorated significantly over the years, and their customer service became unresponsive. I needed something else, and I spent a good while researching.

I finally settled on this Thermos Stainless King - much because of R. Stanton's thorough review here.

I have now been using my Thermos Stainless King for 8 months. I am in no way disappointed. In fact, I'm still thrilled.

I get easily 7 hours of "drinkably hot" coffee from my cup. I do not like cold coffee at all, though I suspect I'm not as picky about "hot" as a few reviewers. Plus, the length of time will obviously be affected by the temperature around the cup. But allow me to offer this anecdote so you understand what I mean:

Shorty after I purchased this cup I filled my coffee cup from home at 5:30am. I did a little work and then left for an appointment at 7:00. I drove an hour and arrived at my appointment at 8:00. By this time my cup was about 1/2 full. It wasn't appropriate for me to take my cup into my appointment, so I left it in the car. The weather was 41°F, so I was concerned (and curious) about how cold my coffee would be afterward. My meeting ended and I returned to my car at 11:00. Took a sip...it was still hot enough that I couldn't have drank more than a sip at a time! I am continually amazed at the heat retention.

Another brief example: I've never added *boiling* water to the mug, but I do add hot water from the faucet and let it sit a while. One day I tried an experiment.
