It's pretty clear here that the smaller Zojirushi mugs/thermos, as many have reported, keeps liquids hotter than about anything else out there. However, that's not the only thing that makes a great mug/thermos. There's three things that keep me from giving this unit a higher review.
1) I have a love/hate relationship with the top. It's easy to use one handed, it doens't seem to leak, and it pours very nice. However, it's a pain to clean if you use anything other than water/tea, even coffee if you use creamer gunks the top up quickly and it's not easy to clean. I accept this in a travel mug that I drink from, but for me a thermos with a cup should be a simple stopper top that's easy to clean/remove etc.
2) All of the Zojirushi products I've tried have this concern, IMO they are made from way too thin of steel, if you are very careful with them, they probably stand up fine. If you are going to toss them around, backpack with them etc. they dent very easy. Of all the mugs/thermos listed above these are by far the thinnest/weakest bodies I've found. In fact in this unit I can easily feel it deform just by squeezing it in my hands, and I'm sure I could put a huge dent into it just pressing into it with my thumbs. None of the other stainless type units I've used have been that thin/weak. If I tossed this around like my other camping/truck/hunting mug/thermos units I have no doubt it would be dented and probably loose it's vacuum/insulating ability in a very short time. However, on the flip side they are also very light weight. If I was gentle with it and only took it to work and was gentle with it, it would probably last a long time.
3) I actually read the instructions for once, warnings, cautions etc. and perhaps this is normal for other products as well but I was surprised at all the restrictions they warned users from doing. Users are warned not to use dry ice (understandable), carbonated drinks (understandable for pressure build up), Liquids containing salt, such as soups, Dairy products, fruit juice (all corrosion creating, seems a little concerning if their stainless steel rusts that easy), any liquids with fruit pulp or tea leaves (clogs the pour spout, understandable). If you use sports drinks users are cautioned to clean the bottle as soon as possible to prevent corrosion and "pin holes". A lot of the manual talks about avoiding corrosion, I'm not sure if these are more prone to corrosion than other products but I've never had any other stainless bottles rust under typical use. A few users have noticed rust in theirs but most seem to be fine, so it's possible they are just overly cautious. They do offer some models with a non-stick coating that might resist corrosion better.
If they made these out of thicker steel, and perhaps added a simple stopper cap, even if just as an optional accessory I would probably bump them up to 5 stars. There's no arguing they keep liquids hotter longer than anything else I've come across but a significant margin, but I'd like to see the thermos model with a easier to clean simple stopper, and a more durable body.
The spout mechanism is a very neat feature. However this is where the bottle looses most of its heat. It's not insulated and the heat leaches right through it and the cup/cap.
One last thing. Regarding all the complaints I've read about cleaning the "coffee gunk". This can be easily cured with a quarter teaspoon of Cafiza and hot water after every use. If you use a coffee maker or espresso machine this stuff is magic on coffee oils and build up. A 20 oz container will last years.
There is a downside to the vent design, which is that it may be hard to clean. I would not recommend using this for anything other than water, coffee and tea, but of course this may depend on your usage and cleaning habits.
Regarding durability, I've bought one in 2013 and another in 2014, both continue to work perfectly and I have found their retention rating to be accurate. I'm amazed that it retains hot water for practically all day, I found their specs to be accurate: 167°F @ 6 hrs. / 117°F @ 24 hrs.
Be advised there is another similar Zojirushi model, the SV-GEE50, which has a nonstick interior. I would not trust or recommend this type of feature since it's unknown what type of process or chemical they use to achieve the nonstick feature.
Overall this Zojirushi SV-GHE50 Tuff Slim Stainless Stainless Steel is an excellent bottle, the best of its kind for hot water and coffee, highly recommended. Make sure you buy from a reputable seller to avoid risk of counterfeit/nongenuine products.
