- Q: Does the lid fall off?
A: The only time it has fallen off was when I took a sharp turn and the cup fell out of the cup holder which was already filled with odds and ends.
- Q: Does the lid leak around the edges?
A: No, not at all.
- Q: Does it get too hot when filled with a hot beverage?
A: Nope. Not in the slightest. The double chambered wall does the job just fine.
- Q: Does it get flavors "stuck" in it (e.g. coffee)?
A: No they do not. This is why I've long been seeking a porcelain travel mug.
Now I'll address my personal concerns when I first bought it:
- I was afraid the textured surface of the outside would gradually stain with coffee and grime that would rub off my hand, but this has not yet happened. It did take a small purple spot for a while when it got rubbed up against something, but that eventually disappeared.
- There's no air hole in the lid. This confused me to no end. Before my first use, I was constantly looking for a little hole along the lip or on the top because I was sure I had simply not seen it the last 3 times I had looked. The fact is that the lid is flexible enough to allow you to draw liquid from the cup without problem. This also limits the quantity you can take, but not significantly over the average lid of a paper cup.
- There's a rubber plug on the bottom of the cup. I was tempted to pull it out to see if I could find a prize when I realized that the plug is probably there for a reason. I read the packaging and discovered that this plug keeps liquid from entering the chamber of air between the two layers of porcelain.
I've been on a long quest for a quality ceramic mug and this guy hits the mark wonderfully. I've been recommending them to anyone who takes an interest.
I finally caved...
I had gotten frustrated by the fact that I accumulate an average of 4 or 5 Styrofoam cups a day on my desk.
I wanted to be more environmentally responsible. I can use this cup as a regular and a travel mug, so it is versatile.
I also cannot stand drinking coffee out of plastic, rubber, or steel travel mug. I am sensitive (ok i am a taste snob), and I can taste the plastic and metal in the coffee. NOT in this porcelain vessel; all you taste is the coffee.
The other thing is the aesthetic qualities. This thing is functional art. I love the beauty and the symbolic duality it represents of disposable vs reusable. The thing is quirky.
Ok, maybe I am over-analyzing this; it's only a cup. But I am glad I purchased it.
The only thing is, if it slips out of my hand it will shatter. Fragile.
So as long as I am cautious this thing is a good life-time investment in good tasting coffee and helping environment by reducing disposable cup usage.
The cup itself is approximately the same size as a so-called "Grande" paper cup at Starbucks (or "Medium" anywhere else). At 10 ounces, however, it holds far less coffee -- less even that that in a Starbucks "Tall" (or "Small"). The reason for this is the large amount of insulation in the cup.
Other than that, the cup does its job. The one complaint I have is that the rubber lid gets easily stained; make sure to wash it frequently and completely.
One last note: for some reason Amazon rates this product as a "toy," and therefore asks reviewers to rate its durability, "fun-ness," and educational value. Hence my attempts at reviewing for such aspects.
So far, I am delighted with my mug and can't wait to show it off and say, "This is NOT a paper cup!"
Yes, the lid smells terrible, but once I got passed that I didn't notice a taste to my coffee. Hoping the smell goes away though (yuck).
No, my lid did not leak, and I filled the mug to the rim before putting it on.
Yes, this cup is deceiving, it is very heavy, and looks like it's a 16 0z. cup yet barely holds 10 oz (I have a Keurig and the 10 oz. button almost overflowed the mug).
It kept my coffee warm (not hot) for about an hour. It wasn't cold, but definitely wasn't hot. I think I expected it to be.
The biggest deterent right now is the weight. Not sure I want to lug this around....we'll see.
