Making a daily commute with a hot cup of coffee can be tough. A disposable paper cup won’t keep your coffee hot for long periods, while a plastic coffee mug might leave you vulnerable to spills and other coffee mishaps.
Luckily, we came across this premium travel mug from Contigo on Amazon. It seems that shoppers are in love with this travel mug with over 24,000 positive reviews on its product page. It’s on sale for $12, or $9 off its list price on Amazon. That’s a 44 percent savings!
“Commuting to work or school early in the morning has never been easier with the commendable Contigo Travel Mug,” a satisfied Amazon reviewer wrote. “This mug will grant you the power to push through the busy days in life.”
Normally going for $21, this Stainless Steel Travel Mug features Contigo’s “AUTOSEAL” technology that closes the travel mug’s mouthpiece after every sip. The AUTOSEAL prevents any hot liquid from spilling or leaking, even if the travel mug is turned upside down or accidentally falls to the ground. To open and re-open, just push the large button on its screw-on lid for a swig.
“This mug features ‘AUTOSEAL’ technology which automatically locks the lid between every sip taken,” an Amazon reviewer wrote. “There are numerous times this feature has saved me from spilling hot coffee on the floor of my car. I remember one day specifically that I was running late to work and the AUTOSEAL feature saved me from spilling hot coffee on myself.”
The Contigo Travel Mug is made from stainless steel and is vacuum-insulated once you screw on its trusty lid. The “THERMALOCK” vacuum insulation makes it possible for hot drinks to stay piping hot for up to seven hours or cold beverages to stay ice-cold for up to 18 hours.
“Designed for convenience and reliability, it will ensure your beverage of choice stays hot or cold for several hours after leaving home,” the satisfied Amazon reviewer continued. “Thanks to the insulated stainless-steel feature, beverages are kept hot. There’s no need for stopping to microwave a lukewarm drink at the office anymore. This mug’s ability to maintain and control a desired temperature is just one key area of performance.”
In addition, this travel mug can also fit in most car cupholders, while the screw-on lid is top-rack dishwasher safe. However, Contigo recommends hand washing the stainless steel body.
“The mug allows for easy cleaning as the underside of the lid flips open for accessing leftover residue and is dishwasher safe,” wrote a delighted Amazon reviewer. “This lets your mug stay looking brand new for several months after beginning to use it. My ultimate favorite feature though is how versatile it is. Whether you’re in the mood to drink something hot or cold, this mug is not made for one specific use; but rather a world of options.”
The Contigo AUTOSEAL Vacuum-Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug comes in a 20-ounce variant, which is perfect for Grande and Venti sizes at Starbucks. It also comes in 20 colors — including Dark Plum, Earl Grey, Passion Fruit, Black, and much more.
“This cup is 100% spill-proof and is ever so conducive to my daily lifestyle. I live in NY and the busy train traffic causes me to have to use my hands sometimes and I can't because I have to hold my morning brew,” wrote a very happy Amazon reviewer. “This cup makes that so much easier to toss in my purse without worry of spilling the substance. The lock feature gives that extra sense of safety that if the button AUTOSEAL button is accidentally pressed nothing will spill. It also keeps my coffee hot for a long period of time. I usually leave my house at 8am and my coffee is hot throughout my morning meetings which end sometime around 11am. Definitely an investment, I actually talked a couple of co-workers into purchasing one and they love it.”
