A Travel Mug That Keeps Your Coffee Hot

Updated on December 31, 2013

Over the years, there have been lots of travel coffee mugs in our home. Some have fallen apart quickly. Others have lasted well, only failing after numerous years of rough handling. After all, we take our mugs on the road, but we also use them as we do yard work, gardening and animal handling. One of the most frustrating issues can be a loose lid or an uncomfortable grip. Some mugs have handles, others lack them. Some are just a bit bulky to hold. Others seem too delicate. My husband saw this one on the job and mentioned the brand. I hit a homer with this as a Christmas gift this year!

Christmas morning, he put some coffee in his new mug, and we proceeded with our festivities. He settled in for a nice nap after gifts were opened. At least a couple of hours after his mug was filled, I noticed it in the kitchen and tested the contents...still hot!

We took a short road trip this last weekend, and I compared his mug with my alumni mug from my alma mater. After an hour, his coffee was still hot, mine was cold. Outstanding! I want one!

In addition to the heating issues, it's helpful to note that the lid facilitates easy drinking while you are traveling. He hates it when his coffee dribbles from the lid, getting a shirt dirty. The Contigo coffee mug is vacuum sealed, and a button is pressed to open it so that you can drink. The button is opposite the drinking opening, so there's no mistaking the positioning as you drink. The lid screws tightly onto the mug, so you don't have to stress about it coming off accidentally either. In all, this is a high-quality unit.

Packaging indicated that the mug is rated for keeping contents hot for up to 4 hours. It's also rated to keep cold contents cold for up to 12 hours.

There are numerous Contigo products available, including the following:

Contigo Autoseal West Loop Purple Stainless Steel Travel Mug with Open-Access Lid, Lilac 16 oz (Discontinued by Manufacturer)

You'll find many colors available, enabling you to cater to your own preferences or to those of your gift recipient. I love this purple travel coffee mug.

Larger capacity mugs...in retrospect, I wish I had purchased the 20-ounce mug for my husband, but I know that cold coffee in a big mug led to a lot of waste before. If you like to have that extra swig before getting to work, invest in the bigger mug.

You'll find many water bottle options, including this set for kids. With hydration being important for healthy living, it's nice to find a water bottle option that will maintain the temperature of the beverage over time.

 

Do you struggle with finding the right mug?

Sometimes, it's the simple things that matter. My hubby loves products that make it easier for him to manage his day, and hot coffee is a big deal to him. This is a great find!
