    Tips and overall Review., November 7, 2016

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I’ve had this thermos for about a month now and I am very pleased with it. I put my hot beverage of choice inside the thermos by 5:40am (what am I doing up so early?) And at around noon it is still nice and warm (not piping hot, but definitely not cold or even tepid) so that’s give or take 6hrs. I have repeated this exact ritual nearly every day and it will always be deliciously warm at noon time. By the by, when I pour my beverage into the thermos it is piping hot, meaning if i were to drink it, my tongue would sting, but not really get “burned”.
    My tips/warnings:
    – If you get one of the colored ones the paint WILL come off if you wash it in the DISHWASHER. I know some people were complaining about that, but in the safety manual it clearly states that only the unpainted stainless steel bottles are dishwasher safe.
    – Wash it the way it shows you on the safety manual for optimal cleanliness.
    – Rinse it right before every use. One time, there was some soap residue left over in my lid and I ended up with gross soapy tea, so unless you’re into that just run the lid under warm water.
    – DON’T tilt the lid and THEN press the button to open the sippy cup or you’ll get a face full of hot liquid. In other words, press the button while the thermos is vertical then tilt it to take a sip. This may seem stupid, but I had no warning (maybe I’m just an idiot) and now no one else has to look like a complete goof if it happens in a public setting.

    That’s it for now, if anything else comes up I’ll be sure to inform you guys.

    This is the best coffee mug I have ever owned. bottom line: lives up to its promise. I actually forgot this mug in my office before a meeting and when I came back for it six hours later the coffee was still STEAMING. Bewildered by some of the negative comments… Why invest the time to log on to Amazon and complain but not take 67 seconds to read the enclosed instructions?? The rubber on the lid tastes funny? Wash the lid with soap and water before first use… AS INSTRUCTED. The cup overflows when you put the top on? Do not put liquid past the fill-line… AS INSTRUCTED. Yes, you just about fit an entire Dunkin XL (24 oz) inside if you go past the fill line, but this is sold as a TWENTY oz cup. So imagine that, overfilling it can cause it to overflow! Who knew? I burned myself because the coffee was too hot and/or I didn’t know how to control the flow of liquid…? Surely that’s a joke. Hot coffee is hot and this product is designed to keep it hot for a long time (which it does better than any other competing product I have tried in 2 decades). As for use… The, err, “drinking slit” (sorry, unfamiliar with technical coffee kid nomenclature) is exactly the same shape and location as that on every take-out coffee lid everywhere on earth. If you can’t figure out how it works, go to the nearest Dunkin donuts or Starbucks or freaking McCafe and watch someone else drink a coffee. It is a fairly intuitive process.

    Only 5 star mug review I have ever done, June 18, 2016
    Lee the Builder (Mountains of New Hampshire) –

    I originally wrote this in reply to one of the less than delighted reviewers. Upon rereading, I’m moving it out front with the other big people reviews.

    Where is the love folks? Where is happy? It’s a travel mug for crying out loud.

    Coffee hot for hours- check.
    Iced tea cold for hours- check.
    Reduced dry cleaning bills and reduced suspicions amongst my coworkers that I had “a little accident” in the crotch of my pants- check.
    Operator savvy enough to know that items at temperature can pressurize a well sealed container and to exercise a weensy bit of caution when going for that refreshing beverage- check.

    It is a machine and machines require a little maintenance. Regular, thorough cleaning of the parts, lid in particular, will result in years, measured in calendar years, years of faithful service.

    This mug is the best thing to happen to portable fluid ingestion mechanisms ever. We have four of these and that is too few. I’m ordering four more while they are on sale. We’ll use them as our regular drink glasses and revel in the convenience of unstained shirts and no more mid drink trip to the fridge to add cubes to get the tepid stuff back to cold, not to mention that one of my grandkids grenaded a drinking glass on the kitchen floor this morning and that’s the last straw. These things are practically indestructible and they don’t hurl their contents and glass shards in a half acre blast radius when you drop one.

    On the topic of floors, we raised a family buying neutral and coffee colored carpet to hide the stains. Contigo frees us to buy the most gawdawful neon rugs that Big Lots can throw at us. (I would have said Amazon but I don’t want to insult Jeff. He has drones.)

    These mugs, unlike your humble reviewer, do not sweat. Put a 20 oz iced tea in a cupholder in the family truckster or the barcolounger and the cupholder is dry when the mug is dry.

    Cons? Of course.

    The paint peeled on one of ours as others report. I let the exterior soak in some thinner for an hour or so and voila a stainless one where a peeling blue one had been.Funny thing was the paint fell away but the Contigo brand name remained firmly emblazoned on the mug. File under “shoulda seen that coming”.

    People steal them.

    The moral of that story is that you can’t count on human nature but you can count on this mug.
