Over 1300 positive reviews can't be wrong, right? Contigo AutoSeal West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug

Each morning I come to my website, (sipping my coffee), and I get to decide what I'm going to ramble about for the day. This morning I had just responded to an email from my parents regarding a bunch of baby tree's they were sprouting in the garage in anticipation for planting this spring. Not that that has anything to do with coffee, but stay with me here. I'm explaining how today's topic came to be.

So with my parents still on my mind as I logged in; the cross reference between my parents and coffee is the last time they visited us from out of state, my Dad showed me his travel mug and gave me a 15 minute sales pitch as to how great it was, why I should buy one and how it kept coffee hot longer than any other mug he's ever tried.

I actually have no idea what brand it was, what it looked like, nor anything else about it, but that is what was on my mind when I went to Amazon and did a basic search for a good travel mug.

  • I wanted to find one that kept the beverage hot.
  • Sealed well and wouldn't spill.
  • Held enough coffee to make it worth while without being too big.
  • Looked cool.
Well, over 1300 reviews and an almost perfect 5 out of 5 is a good place to start, right?

Designed to be 100-percent leak-proof, this vacuum-insulated 16-ounce Contigo travel tumbler lets you take beverages on-the-go without the risks of a messy spill. The patented AUTOSEAL lid is what makes the mug leak-proof and spill-proof, yet it also makes drinking easy. A contoured body and a soft rubbery grip at the top make this mug easy to hold. This sleek, elegant design also fits most car cup holders. This version comes in black, and it's available in an assortment of colors.

Stays Hot and Cold The 100 percent spill- and leak-proof AUTOSEAL lid automatically seals between sips, making it impossible to spill. There's no lid to remove or spout to open, so it's great for one-handed, on-the-go drinking--whether commuting, hiking, or just dealing with a busy day. Simply press the button to drink and then release to seal between sips. And because the lid system is always closed unless activated, your beverages will remain hotter and colder for longer periods of time.

Contigo AUTOSEAL Travel Tumbler

Made from durable stainless steel, the mug has a double wall and is vacuum-insulated, ensuring that hot beverages stay hot and cool beverages stay cool. Vacuum-insulated technology keeps beverages hot for up to four 4 and cold for up to 12 hours. The double wall construction not only retains temperature, but also prevents external condensation from forming so table tops are free from moisture. It measures 2-1/2 inches round by 8 inches tall, and it weighs approximately 8 ounces.

By using this Contigo product, you're both helping the environment and also saving money by taking your water, coffee, tea, or juices on the road in a reusable container instead of buying water bottles on the go. And research shows that coffee drinkers can save nearly 23 pounds of paper cup waste by toting around their own reusable mug.

Caring for Your Contigo

For easy care, the Contigo lid is top rack dishwasher safe. It is recommended to hand wash the mug body to protect the finish. Always store with lid removed to prevent moisture from becoming trapped in the body or lid after washing. Do not keep liquids that spoil easily, such as dairy, in the mug for prolonged periods.
For use with hot or cold beverages.
