Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug
A stainless mug is a vacuum insulated mug that is designed to drink directly from the mug. Although similar to travel mugs, it offers better heat retention because of its tight fitting lid, and can be stored in a bag or purse without spilling.
How does it keep beverages hot?
The air between two thin layers of stainless steel that make up the body of the mug is removed to create a vacuum. Because there is no air, the temperature on the other side of the wall does not transfer over, keeping
beverages hot or cold for hours.
The Story About Zojirushi
Zojirushi (pronounced ‘zoh-jee-ROO-shee’) began in Japan in 1918 as a manufacturer of hand-blown glass vacuum bottles. Today, Zojirushi’s product line extends to high-end small appliances such as rice cookers, bread makers and coffee makers, high quality vacuum insulated products like vacuum bottles, lunch jars and carafes, and commercial restaurant and coffee equipment. In the past few years, Zojirushi has enhanced the focus on design and how appliances fit into everyday lives with the introduction of a variety of new products. The name Zojirushi means 'Elephant brand' in Japanese.

The flip lid is tightly fitted for excellent heat retention and features a safety lock to prevent accidental opening. These mugs have a stainless steel interior with SlickSteel finish.

Temperature: I poured hot tea in it and was so busy I didnt drink it at school all day. So on my way home (10 hours later) I decided I didnt want to waste good tea and took a swig. OMG NOT A GOOD IDEA. It was still too hot for me! Even though I regretted that for a few seconds I was really surprised and impressed by this. Just for fun one time I tested it by pouring boiling water in it then 2 min later putting the cap on. I then checked the temp 18 hours later. Still hot. STILL HOT. Not warm. HOT. I do live in a warmer area so the coldest environmental temp was probably like 68-70F. With a vacuum seal that shouldnt matter but its worth mentioning.
Cleaning: so easy! It comes apart and you can just wash and dry everything really well. Then reassemble in a few seconds. I even accidentally left milk and coffee go a little stinky in here once and after a regular wash there was no smell at all. That only happened one time but I was really happy about the lack of reminders of my mistake.
Use: I have definitely locked this and just tossed it into my bag before. Its very secure and I have had 0 spills in 6 months of use. Also I like that when you tilt it to drink you dont get a Niagara Falls size gush of liquid onto your face.
VIDEO: b/c I was confused about the parts so I thought others could use the help.
UPDATE February 2015 (posted as a comment but moved here for visibility): Original video poster here! Glad some of you found my video helpful! I couldn't tell what the parts were and I thought this thermos was awesome and deserved a review so thats why I made it.
Anyhow, I have had this same thermos for 1.5 years now and its still going strong. Ive taken it on lots of plane trips, shoved it in various luggages/bins to travel, really abused it as far as a thermos goes. But thats why I bought it! Still keeps my drinks unfailingly hot/cold, doesn't leak, looks great, and is still basically awesome. I even bought a couple more thermoses for family members and they are having the same success. Its worth the up front investment for this one. It does seem like a lot when you have $5-10 choices at supermarkets.
I bought a bottle brush to clean it (OXO good grips bottle brush from supermarket) and it works perfectly. I don't take the whole thing apart every time- just give the parts a soapy soak/wash every few times then air dry and reassemble.
Nevertheless, I hesitate to recommend this product because, over time, the rubber parts of the seal develop some kind of black stain that's impossible to remove from the rubber. (You can get it off the plastic.) It even changes the texture of the rubber, making it rough. I've owned the three in the picture about a year and half, and this is what they look like, despite daily cleaning. They've never held anything but ice water.
Now, I would overlook this problem if it were not for the exorbitant cost of replacements, which are available from the manufacturer's website. The lid cover gasket and stopper set, which together replace the 3 rubber parts in each mug, cost over $16! And I need 4 sets of them! Usually when a product costs this much to begin with, the manufacturer makes parts available at a reasonable cost, or gratis. Not this one.
Some reviewers have knocked a star or two off because the beverage was scalding when they went to drink it. With any hot beverage in any container, you should always check to see how hot it is before taking a big gulp of it. When I'm planning to drink from the mug soon, I leave the lid off or open for as long as I can to let it cool down.
Comparisons to similar items: I have the 0.48 liter as well, but it's too large for my daily use - I am tired of whatever the contents are before I get to the bottom. I prefer that for cold weather hiking, when I want heated hydration, and more of it. I also previously had the version of this mug with the coated interior - also excellent, but the non-stick coating always disturbed me. I have also used the 12 oz. Klean Kanteen with various lids, and the non-café lids leaked with hot liquids after some time. The Café Lid 2.0 was more leak-resistant than the first version, but still would occasionally leak, and I found it annoying to clean with its finicky gasket and many little parts.
