Best Dishwasher Safe Travel Mugs For Coffee Or Tea

Updated on February 6, 2013

A Travel Mug That Can Be Cleaned In The Dishwasher Is Very Handy

Sure you could always stick to normal run-of-the-mill coffee cups. They are classic, timeless, and both microwave and dishwasher safe but they don't really hold a lot nor do they keep your drink insulated in the very least . A good travel mug can make your morning cup of Joe more enjoyable. It can make it last longer and in some cases can even help you to drink less coffee overall.

The Aladdin brand has a number of high quality reusable travel mugs that are both recyclable and dishwasher safe. The Transform Recycled and Recyclable Traveler Mug is very similar to the the one pictured at left and very affordable.

The following travel mugs are dishwasher safe. They are highly rated items and some of the best mugs you can buy. Even still they all basically cost less than $20 a piece making them great gifts for friends, family, or even yourself.

Here Are A Few Travel Mugs Safe To Use In The Dishwasher

There are so many more mugs that can go in the dishwasher than can be listed here all at once. Even still here is a small list to get you started. In most cases you will not want to wash your mug in the dishwasher every day but every once ina while should be fine. The ceramic mug with lid featured below is probably ok for more routine dishwasher use. Also, lower on this page I've featured what I would consider the best dishwasher safe travel mug. Scroll down for it.

A Few Things To Keep In Mind

I Wouldn't Wash A Dishwasher Safe Coffee Mug In The Dishwasher Every Time

Most mugs that are labeled "dishwasher safe" are probably only best placed in the dishwasher every now and then rather than every other day. The reason for this is because many small parts in the lid don't adequately get washed in the dishwasher and some parts can wear down quicker with dishwasher washing.

I use the Stainless King mug and it does great in the dishwasher but I normally dismantle the lid to clean all it's small parts better. It's a better clean and it makes the mug look better over the long run as the dishwasher isn't wearing down the outer blue paint.

Some other mugs have silicone rings on the outer-shell which can wear down quicker with routine dishwasher use or seams that than become separated. if you want to use a mug all the time in the dishwasher then you will need to buy something that is almost purely ceramic, porcelain, or glass otherwise you should just assume a shorter usable life.

This Is The Best Dishwasher Safe Travel Coffee Mug (IMHO)

I've used a bunch of coffee mugs, tumblers, and ceramic cups in my day and by far my favorite mug is the Thermos Stainless King. Reviews on Amazon are through the roof, are there are hundreds of satisfied reviewers. I wrote a review of the Stainless King travel mug myself. You can see it here.

My favorite part about it is that it can and will keep your drinks hot for the better part of a day sealed and a good half-day if left in the open position. The Thermos mug is dishwasher-safe, and it disassembles for easier cleaning of the nooks and crannies too. Click through for more info.

Use A Good Bottle Brush So You Don't Have To Rely On A Dishwasher All The Time

Even dishwasher safe mugs will be damaged over time if they are cleaned too frequently in a dishwasher. I like giving my Stainless King the occasional run through the washer but on most days I just rinse it out and give it a quick scrub with a bottle brush. It doesn't take long and it helps extend the life of the mug. This brush by Oxo is probably best in class and is useful for many other kitchen cleaning tasks as well.
