    This mug works fairly well, when tight it doesn't let any delicious coffee out, and

    There are a couple of major flaws that would stop me buying another of this make/model in the future, and they're both in regard to the lid. The first and most important probem is that it's really difficult to drink out of, you very rapidly go from no coffee to all of the coffee, so I burn myself quite regularly with this. Possibly just user error, but I'd hope that I'd understand how to use a cup by now. The shape of the centre screw also inexplicably has two cavities, so it retains some of your hot drink. This means even when it's sealed you've generally got a bit of coffee swilling about waiting to get spilled on yourself or your precious things. There's no excuse for these not to be filled in on an injection molded part.

    The second issue is the lack of grip points on the outer red rim. It's far too easy to be tightening the centre thread (the bit you drink from) using the corkscrew like handle, only to accidentally also tighten the outer thread that holds the whole plastic lid onto the metal cup. There's nothing to grip here, so you can't then unscrew the lid at all. The corscrew handle only unscrews the centre thread and then just spins. This really, desperately needs some kind of handle, or holes, or anything to let you get a hold of it.

    I'm a fully grown man, and I've been unable to get the lid of this on a few occasions. After asking friends to help to make sure it wasn't me, I've resorted to pulling the lid out with pliers. I resorted to not tightening the lid as much, but that just means I sometimes spill coffee. Holding the mug by the upper red rim while tightening the centre helps, but mostly I'm just loathe to use this mug now.

    I wish I'd bought a cheaper mug with a simple lid. It might not be as water tight or stay hot as long, but it would have done the job better.

    So far this is the best travel mug I've owned. It keeps drinks hot for ages, even when the mug has been outside for half an hour in the freezing cold it's still hot when I get to the ferry. It also looks cool!

    People who are complaining about it not being leak proof or not being able to clean it properly are not using it correctly.
    It is very easy to clean if you take the entire lid off. Don't try to pull out the middle part without taking the whole lid off first as you need to squeeze the clips together inside to release it.
    It IS leak proof if you screw the lid on tight enough
    You do need to make sure the plug in the middle is unscrewed when you first put the lid on in order to let the steam escape. I don't see why this is a problem or a design fault as the only option would be to have a vent in it for the steam, which would mean it wouldn't be leak proof. I'm not sure where people expect the steam to go otherwise!
    The lid does have a slope so you do need to be careful when drinking hot tea or coffee out of it, but again, I don't see why this is a problem since this device is designed for adults, so surely it is common sense not to tip the mug too far??

    There one thing that I feel could be improved - since you do need to screw the lid tightly to make it leak-proof, it is difficult to take it off again because it it smooth and there's not much to grip, this is especially difficult if you have wet hands for example. It would be better if there were some grooves or something to grip when unscrewing the lid.

    This is definitely a useful and attractive travel-mug - perhaps the best on there is. But it could still be improved on, for two reasons.

    1. When you wash it, when you turn it upside down to empty out the water, the plastic top has a grooved rim inside the cup which collects water. When you shake it and turn it back the right way up, the water flows down to the bottom again. The only way to get it completely dry inside is to use a piece of kitchen roll. If you don't do this you could end up with a bit of stagnant water at the bottom of the cup.

    2. The first time I used it, I poured some freshly made and very hot tea into it and drank it about 20 minutes later. You drink it by loosening the top (two clips stop the top falling out when you unscrew it). Because the rim of the cup has a slope in it, before I knew what was happening, too much tea ran out of the cup and burnt my lip. Take care - sipping a small amount is not that easy! It might be better to take the top out altogether to avoid this happening but then you lose the advantage of having a "sip and go" mug.

    3. It's actually quite tricky to get the top out. When you unscrew it the two retaining clips have to be pulled quite hard before the top is released.

    The illustration on the box is not quite the same as the mug inside. The illustration seems to show that the top can be taken apart for cleaning. The top of this one looks different and does not take apart. I went into Steamer Trading to have a look and apparently there are two models of this mug but they share the same box! I suspect the one I have (a relative bought it for me on Amazon) is the newer model.

    It's very good, and I'd buy it again, but for very hot drinks, it takes a bit of care to use it safely.
