5.0 out of 5 stars Just What I Needed, December 24, 2005
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Thermos 14-Ounce Insulated Travel Mug, Black (Kitchen)
I had an old Starbucks stainless mug for a long time. It was terrible. Leaked all over the place, insulated poorly, and it was really difficult to get the top off after you finish your coffee.

I finally decided to get nice, functional travel mugs for myself and my wife. I looked around on Amazon, and bought the Nissan 14oz Travel Tumbler. BIG mistake! It leaked like a sieve, even worse than my old junky Starbucks mug. It is beyond me how you can make something that leaks profusely, and call it a "travel" mug. So, I returned it, and got these Leak-Proof mugs instead.

Jackpot.

I'm telling you, there are few words which convey how happy I am with this mug. It is truly, unequivocally leak-proof (as long as you screw the top on!) You could play football with this mug, and it wouldn't let a drop out! I can take it anywhere, and never worry about whether it's upright, or whether I have coffee on my carseat. Brilliant!

The insulating properties are absurd. If you pour hot coffee into it straight-up, it will keep it hot for a few hours, which is good. But personally, I follow the suggestion of the manufacturer, and boil water in the microwave first, then pour it into the mug. I let it sit, sealed, for a little bit, then pour out the water and fill it with coffee. This will keep coffee scalding (burn your mouth!) hot for about 2 hours. It will keep it pleasantly warm for over 5 hours. I was telling someone just the other day, since it keeps it hotter, I drink less coffee....which is an added benefit.

And what a great surprise...when I opened the box from Amazon, I find out it has a "bonus feature": a carabeener attached to the mug handle with a keyring. I couldn't have asked for more. Now, I just clip it onto my bookbag or cooler, and I get a free hand...

If I had to think of a drawback, I'd say that it's a little more dificult to open and close than the other nissan mug, since you have to unscrew it (the other one could be opened with one hand), but it's not that big of a deal. I'll gladly trade a little ease of opening for not having the thing spill all over the place.

This thing is perfect. Go buy one.
