Having said that, 500ml should be ample for one and it's very good all round.
It's Thermos brand, so you would expect it to be of good quality, and it is.
It's a very good size for carrying around with you anywhere. It's slim and will probably fit in most car cup holders.
It's also very easy to use with a one-handed operation. Flip the locking clip down, press the button, and the top flips up and over to allow you to drink.
I think that the claimed 8 hours for hot drinks to keep hot is a little bit high, but it certainly achieves around 6 hours before hot coffee etc. gets a bit tepid.
It's probably the best of such products that you could buy.
If you don't want a full flask, but want a hot drink 'on the go', then this is probably for you.
Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful in some way when making the decision.
Thanks for reading it.
My sister has a Contigo Travel Mug which she thinks is the bee's knees. Her mug cost around £23 and is attractive with a metallic pink, slimline design (there are other colours). I borrowed it to test it out, and made tea (with a teensy bit of milk) to take to bed at 10.30pm. Sure enough, at around 2.15am I woke up parched and sat up to drink my tea. I was gutted to find it lukewarm after less than four hours, so decided against buying one, although it is ideal for my sis as she takes it to work meetings where it only has to stay drinkably hot for a couple of hours. So I was on the hunt for something more suitable for my purpose, reading dozens of Amazon reviews as usual. Yes, I do need to get a life.
So eventually I ended up ordering this Thermos Ultimate (cheaper than my sister's mug too!) and am so glad I did.
My first experiment was taking my lovely, mellow filter coffee on a six hour coach trip to an airport (yes, six miserable hours on a bus). I warmed the mug with boiling water for half a minute first then filled it with filter coffee and a small amount of cold milk. Around two hours into my journey I decided to have a drink, and SCALDED MY TONGUE AND UPPER PALATE! So be aware, this travel mug stays very, VERY hot. Nevertheless, once I got over the pain (ouch!!) I was pleased, but I ended up having to take the lid off and blow on my coffee in order to drink it!Read more ›
It has provided faithful service in the UK on a daily basis as well as stints in Kenya, Norway (in the winter, cross country skiing and did not let me down), Australia and Italy.
The Graphite colour has long since peeled off but it looks good as stainless steel anyway.
It keeps hot things hot all day. Be sure to make to drinking temperature as it will remain so for hours.
It has been dropped multiple times and never once leaked.
We did a little experiment. Filled this with just boiled water at 12 noon. At 4pm my husband (despite my warnings) took a drink and promptly burned his mouth, it hadn't cooled down a bit. 27 hours later and the water was luke warm.
I like my coffee hot and once it starts to cool down too much I just pour it down the sink. I've not poured any coffee down the sink for weeks. Now I can sit with a coffee on my desk and drink it slowly all day and it's still warm.
The only think I'd say is to make sure that if you want to drink your coffee/tea etc straight away that you make it drinking temperature before you put it in the mug as it really won't lose any heat.
- Does not leak
- Briefcase friendly
- Ideal for car cup holder
- Single handed action (lid pops open)
- No drips or dribbles
I literally throw it into my handbag and off I go. Also with the other I had by the time I have reached work the coffee is tepid or cold not this one it is scorching hot even up to lunch time and beyond.
There is a useful lip so that you can drink straight from the beaker, but be warned it keeps the drinks so hot be careful not to burn your mouth as i did the first time I used it.
It is neat and compact a light weight when empty, I would not want to be without mine now and have just purchased one for my husband ( he makes the coffees so it is only fair)
