What Matters to Us
THERMOS brand products deliver what matters every time. As the leading manufacturer of convenient insulated products for over 110 years, THERMOS is trusted by consumers to provide innovative portable containers that promote a safe and healthy lifestyle. THERMOS delivers when it matters.
Technology Matters: THERMOS vacuum insulation technology keeps hot things hot and cold things cold
With traditional containers, heat or cold finds its way inside through the process of convection.
THERMOS vacuum insulation creates an airless space between two walls virtually eliminating the convection process and temperature change.
Your drink will stay icy cold or steamy hot no matter what the forecast.
Before first use, and as soon as possible after each use, wash all parts with warm, soapy water. Rinse all parts thoroughly and allow time to dry.
Contents should not be left in the container for longer than 24 hours. As soon as possible after each and every use, wash all parts with warm, soapy water. Rinse all parts thoroughly with clean water. Allow all parts to dry completely prior to next use or storage.
Do not use abrasive cleaners or scrubbers since they may dull the finish.
Do not use bleach or cleaners containing chlorine on any parts of the product.
This product is top-rack dishwasher safe; however, hand washing is recommended as the dishwasher uses harsher detergents and hot water that may affect the appearance of your product.
Residual liquids, foods, or other contents may become trapped between product components, such as lid parts, container parts, gaskets (flexible band around lid and/or stopper), or straws (if present in the product). Although this product is top-rack dishwasher safe, hand washing is recommended to ensure that all parts of the product are thoroughly cleaned.
For maximum thermal efficiency, preheat or pre-chill the product just prior to use. Fill with hot/cold tap water, attach lid, let stand 5 to 10 minutes and empty water. After filling container with contents, re-cover with lid to increase thermal efficiency. Never use a microwave, conventional oven, or other heat source for this purpose.
- Thermos L.L.C. warrants this Genuine Thermos Brand product to be free from defects in material or workmanship for five year from date of purchase.
- This warranty does not cover ordinary wear and tear or color fading, or any condition affected by abuse, neglect, alteration, accident or improper use or maintenance.

- Not recommended for use by children: Keep out of the reach of children, especially when product contains hot contents, which may burn or scald user.
- Always test temperature of contents before consuming.
- Do not overfill the container: Leave space at top of container for lid and stopper (if present), to avoid overflow. Hot contents may burn or scald user if overflow occurs.
- Check periodically to make sure any gasket (flexible band around lid and/or stopper) is present and properly positioned to prevent contents from passing through stopper when stopper is closed (if applicable to product). Missing, worn or misaligned gaskets may cause product to leak. Leakage of hot contents may burn or scald user.
- In general, contents should not be left in container for longer than 24 hours. However, the rate at which contents spoil depends on several factors. Certain contents that include, for example, dairy and/or tomato may start to spoil sooner. Proceed with caution when using the product with quick spoiling contents.
- If contents are left in the container longer than 24 hours, or you suspect spoilage, use caution when opening the container. Contents spoilage can cause pressure inside the container to build, possibly leading to the forceful ejection of the stopper or contents. In such circumstances, before attempting to open the container, ensure the opening is pointed away from the user or other persons to avoid injury.
- Do not use tools or devices to force container to open.
- If you are unable to open container by hand, do not open it and dispose of it at your local waste facility.
- Do not use to store or carry carbonated drinks or dry ice. This may cause lid/stopper and contents to eject forcefully or leak.

Top Customer Reviews
- 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!
- Build quality: It's built like a tank, in fact some may find it too heavy, but it's clearly well made.
- Shape and Size: It's a 16 oz mug, but what's nice is it will fit in a "standard cup" sized cup holder. I own a 2001 VW Passat and they are not known for their cup holders, but no problem with this mug. This, again, is often overlooked; just a great design.
The only thing I can't comment on about this travel mug is its durability over time, since I've only had it for a couple of weeks, but other than that it's the only travel mug I've ever owned that met or exceeded everything on my list of what I think "the perfect travel mug" should be.
This travel mug may not be for everyone. I love the midnight blue color and heft of this mug, but my wife prefers the shape, weight, and look of the stainless steel "Contigo" travel mug, which is also a very nice travel mug. The issues I had with the Contigo travel mug were: 1) doesn't fit in my car's cup holder, (2) no escape from hot liquid, much easier to burn your mouth, and (3) harder to clean.
This Thermos Stainless King travel mug gets my vote for the best and is well worth the $; can't recommend it enough!
-Heat, cold retention
-Sipping lid easy to drink from
- 0% leakproof, ugh
- exterior on even a mildly cold day is like the 'tongue on pole scene' from a Christmas Story...better wear gloves. It gets really cold but still keeps liquids hot.
- Lid can be difficult to take off to clean. To keep it leakproof I often had to really tighten the lid.
- Lid can be difficult to clean with many right angles. If you drink any liquid with dairy it's a great place to get hairy stuff growing. Unfortunate accidental discovery. Mouth vomit.
-Exterior paint starts to flake off. Get the stainless version to avoid
-Customer service non existent. Tried to resolve the leaking issue but no one answered emails or phone calls (press 9 then 1 then 6 then 0 to speak with an operator then goodbye without ever speaking to anyone live. A message was left unanswered as well...YMMV)
-The leakproof gasket
-Colored open/close indicator washes off
-lid right angles for cleaning
-customer service...outsource it, the world is all about customer service. Not really hard to do if you want to. Call Patagonia for a great example or LLBean. )
This is my first review but what compelled me to write are some newly stained and coffee infused sheets, pants and backpack.
UPDATE: It is now 4/27/2017 and this mug is on another deployment with my husband. I feel i should update since it's been years since my last update. In that time he threw his mug across the parking lot when he was mad, it didn't spill, but it added another dent or two. He still loves the mug and it went with him to the arctic. I offered to buy him a new one but he said he's likes the memories he has with this one and it still works great.
I had previously written a review of this product giving it 5 stars and talking about it being awesome, but I just deleted it so I could rewrite.
It has now been 3 years since I purchased this badboy and sent it off to Afghanistan where my husband was deployed. (purchase date December 24, 2011)
- Quality: My husband dropped his mug off the top of a MATV and it didn't break, the lid didn't come off, it didn't even spill his coffee. It did dent a little but that was quite the fall. Over the next 3 years he has thrown this mug several times while angry and it is still going strong, not so pretty with the paint peeling, but just as functional. This is a great, sturdy mug.
-This mug keeps things hot: he fills it up before he goes to work and the an hour later it is still "too hot" to drink if he hasn't let it vent a little. It easily keeps his drinks hot for hours, and even up to 12+ hours if he hasn't opened the lid much.
-It fits in a standard cup holder. And even if it didn't fit in your cup holder, it really is leak proof, so if you shut the mouth piece you could just throw it on your seat and it is not going to spill.
-Cleaning: One of the main reasons I bought this was because of the lid being able to be disassembled fully to be cleaned. I wanted something that wouldn't get nasty while he had it during his deployment. It can easily have all of it's parts cleaned thoroughly and is no trouble at all. That being said there was never once any build up or nastiness when disassembled to clean,, which says a lot since being how he is, he cleaned it maybe every 4 months. It is also dishwasher safe
-as another reviewer stated "- 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." This is the truth.
This is my review after 3 years of this thing going through daily use and getting beaten up during field ops and deployments. His mug isn't too pretty looking anymore but it is just as functional. The fact that it's survived falling off his MATV, and getting thrown across parking lots and other places and is still a beast of a mug I felt compelled to write a new review updating how the mug is doing.
I will buy another one when the time comes that it's needed, I would not hesitate at all.
