5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome mug, 14 Feb 2012
This review is from: Contigo 21234 Double Wall Stainless Steel Vacuum Insulated Tumbler, Silver (Kitchen & Home)
This mug is awesome.

Pros:
1 Dishwashable - lid and body (if you have the stainless steel model). The lid is not hard to clean if you rinse it with soapy water and press and depress the button to clean the spout.

2 Onehand operation and spill proof. It is only spill proof if you don't hit the button as there is no way to lock it so this is not suitable for putting inside your bag unless you are confident it will stay in place and nothing will activate the button.

3 Actually keeps warm for 4 hours. The elle and bella models only keep warm for about an hour at most. This gives you a choice as sometimes you need stuff kept warm for 4 but at other times you may want it to cool and aim to have drunk it within an hour. In this respect i have actually used some (even very cheap mugs) which kept warmer for longer but i am pretty pleased with 4 hours tbh. The 600mil aria one apparently insulates for longer.

4 Cool touch. I've got a ceramic travel mug which scalds even through the silicone handle.

5 The lid is actually quite easy to get on and off.

6 Looks pretty good. There are plenty nicer ones - even the elle and bella or the coloured versions of this are nicer but it still looks quite decent.

7 Comes in a different sizes to suit you. I opted for the 470ml one and that suits me fine.

Cons:

1 With certain beverages there could be problems with cleaning the lid due to the nooks and crannies. If handwash doesn't do it then dishwasher might be needed but either way it is not something you can quickly handwash if that is the case. Could solve this problem by getting a spare lid.

2 If the coloured ones were dishwashable that would be even better. I have a japanese one which is and it feels nicer than holding cold steel.

3 The price is rather insane tbh when you think of how cheap generic ones are. It is 18.99 in the UK but in the states you can get it for like 6 in some places so i guess it is the cost of importing.

All said and done this is a solid product. I expect many years of use out of this. I only got this as someone stole my japanese Zojirushi one which was screw top but i'm quite pleased with this. I will still use my other screw top one when i need to hold my drink in my bag but otherwise this is my new staple.
