Previous reviews have noted that their mugs leaked along the rim and that the plastic gets discoloured when heating tomato based soups or soups containing oil/fat. I was worried about leaks, but before I bought this I watched a YouTube video testing the mug full of water (searching for "Sistema soup mug leaks" without the quotes will get you there, since I can't include links in this review) and I found that my experience has been exactly the same as the video maker's: soup doesn't leak out of the sides of the lid, but if you tilt the cup entirely upside down, soup will leak out of the vent at the top. If I fill the cup with approximately 400 ml of soup, it's absolutely fine and I don't have to worry about leaks at all. If I fill it with closer to the maximum capacity of 600+ ml, then I need to wrap the whole thing up in a carrier bag just in case as I have occasionally had a few drops of soup come out due to it being jostled in my bag. I also now tuck the cup firmly into the bottom of my bag so it can't fall over, and that does the trick.
As for the tomato-based soups, this is an annoying reality of plastics. I like that the cup is plastic because that means I don't have to deal with a super-heated ceramic bowl, but the downside is that the clear lid does take on an orangey-pink cast. Also, any soups with fat or oil in them, even in fairly small amounts, will mark and possibly damage the inside rim of the cup.Read more ›
I came here to leave a most enthusiastic review of these soup mugs but I've been kind of stopped in my tracks on seeing the current price of this item. The price has absolutely rocketed since my order for three of these mugs on 20 Dec 2012. I ordered three mugs and paid a total of £11.97 for them, including delivery. The exact same order now would cost me £19.80 !!! Just what is going on? I have heard of inflation but this is ridiculous! (Incidentally, I had already bought a single mug previously and now I own four, so they must be good.)
So, to continue, even though I now feel "down" to say the least concerning the prices, these are very handy soup mugs to own and yes, the product is excellent and does everything I expect of it.
I now live alone and yet I've bought four of these mugs. Why? Because I *love* home made soup!
I'm getting on a bit and the main hassle with making a batch of home made soup is eventually decanting it from the cooking pot into a large container to sit in the fridge, then decanting a (large) portion from said container into a microwave bowl or small saucepan to reheat each day over the next few days. These days I often eat soup as a "main meal" with home made bread, so a decent portion is called for. These mugs hold over 650 ml which equals about a can and a half of standard Heinz soup tins, to give you some idea of capacity.Read more ›
The seal seems good although I try to keep it upright just to be safe. For those who say it leaks through the steam vent, you might be interested to know that the lid from the 'Sistema Breakfast On The Go' bowl fits exactly onto this mug - I think I'll be using that instead.
The problem is, they are not truly microwavable. Just like any container made of this sort of material they will (just) stand boiling water but not boiling oil. Hmm, well what is oil doing in there then? you might ask. Well, even the slightest bit of fat in a soup will inevitably float on top, especially when heated, this boils, mostly at the edge - like when you see bubbles when you watch something in the microwave for signs it is ready - and damages the plastic badly. I have tried heating it less, but still a tiny line of bubbles appears around the edge and ruins the plastic. Inevitably one day it will get hot enough for this to happen. Another problem with plastic is many soups dye it red. You can get round this to some extent by choosing a red mug!
I bought three recently, all are stained and two are damaged at the edges. I note that two are damaged on the underside of the lid where presumably hot stuff has spattered onto it. I would add that I am not talking high fat soups here but the lowest calorie ones I can find which are inevitably vegetable based.
