Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: ZOJIRUSHI Stainless steel mug 480ml Dark Cocoa (Kitchen & Home)
More like a thermos flask than a classic traveller coffee mug, but therefore so much more effective. I've got a Trudeau mug which is the more classic shape and is a few years old, and quite good. But this beats it soundly in terms of length of time keeping the beverage hot. Also totally leak proof (unlike any other mug I have tried) and a slimmer size to slip into work bags, so more practical in that sense, too. Only tiny thing I have noticed is that the rather smart, sleek coloured coating has already been scratched in a couple of places (probably zips, getting in and out of bags etc), so if you care about that sort of thing, worth seeing if they do a plain stainless steel one.
The spout is beautifully engineered and easy to use, though the flip up lid does rather obscure your face if you happen to be trying to talk to someone at the same time as sipping your brew.
The top working parts all come apart easily for rinsing - I recommend doing this as soon as you can to prevent it having a permanent smell of coffee.
Highly recommended, compared to other brands/types of travelling mug/container which I have found wanting in some way or another.
