Amazon Shoppers Can't Get Enough of this Travel Mug
No more cold coffee by 10 a.m.
There's nothing worse than a lukewarm mug of coffee when you finally get into the office after a long commute. If you find yourself making repeated trips to the microwave to reheat your cup of Joe in the morning, you might be in the market for a new commuter mug. That's where Amazon reviewers come in.
According to more than 5,500 five-star Amazon reviews, the Zojirushi 16-Ounce Stainless Steel Mug is the ultimate keep-your-coffee-warm-until-noon travel mug. Check out the reviews section and you'll find plenty of purchasers waxing poetic about how they drink coffee at a snail's pace and this mug keeps their coffee temperature almost exactly the same as when they brewed it. Seriously, reviewers claim to have tested this.
Zojirushi has been crafting water bottles for more than 100 years in Japan. What started out as a maker of hand-blown vacuum glass bottles has grown to inlcude travel mugs, rice cookers and even bread makers.
The brand claims their travel mug keeps beverages hot or cold for up to six hours and that the temperature control secret all comes from the tight-fitting lid and the lack of air between the two walls of the stainless steel mug. The standard size fits in most car cupholders, so it's easy to take on the go. If you're stashing a full mug in your work bag, make sure to flip the lock switch on the lid to keep coffee from spilling. And when you're ready to clean, the top disassembles into two parts making it easier to get into nooks and crannies.
For $45, this mug might seem a bit pricey, but according to reviews the vast majority of owners are happy with their purchase. And, if it makes bringing coffee to work a more enjoyable experience, you probably won't be tempted to stop by your local coffee shop (and the mug will pay for itself).
