Keeps liquid hot for ages and also pleasant to drink from the latter which is not the case for other mugs i’ve tried. Fits into the drink section of my mini cooper so easy for travelling. I do not know if all cars are uniform. I have turned it upside down and shaken it and it did not leak. Only slight difficulty is that i screwed the top on too tightly the first time i used it and had to ask someone with stronger wrists to open it as i wanted the top completely off.
Fantastic travel mug, use it every day keeps coffee hot for hours and never leaks.
I recently bought a different one for coffee but i found design faults with it so i went back to these trusty bodum ones. Hot drinks remain hot, and are leak proof. Easy to clean and take apart unlike my interim one.

Comments from buyers
“Much better than I thought it would be!, 25 year search over., Keeps drinks hot”
I’ve bought two of these now – one for home and one for work. Use the work one every day and it keeps drinks hot for ages, like from morning til lunchtime; no more tipping half the cup away cos it’s gone cold. Slightly fiddly getting the twist top out to wash, but not too bad. I’ve put the home one in the dishwasher and it’s fine. This ‘old’ model is so much better than the new one, as you can drink from any side of the mug rather than turning it just right to find the ‘sippy’ bit. Nice stable base and fits nicely in the car drinks holder. I got the black one, as it was so much cheaper than the red one i really wanted – not sure why?.
I like this more because of it’s classy looks rather than any other reason. It is expensive and it looks expensive. Steel and rubber–rather masculine and very robust. The best thing about this mug is that you don’t have to search (in the dark, say, or without your specs) for a tiny drinking hole. When the top is loosened you can drink from any part of the rim, and it is a nicely designed lip for comfy sipping. I always find i dribble with plastic lids on takeaway drinks, but no such problem with this. It’s not completely spill proof though. If you fill it right up, you will get overflow into the lip section. If you don’t fill it right up, the coffee won’t stay as hot for as long, i found. (haven’t tested it with icy drinks yet).
Perfect – all as advertised and expected.
I am a product design engineer and can be very picky about badly designed products. I took some time before deciding to buy this flask and it is perfect.
Does an excellent job of keeping drinks hot – a cup of tea was still warm after a two-hour drive. The mug feels substantial and well built. The only thing that marks it down is the difficulty in removing the lid to fill it in the first place, you have to wrestle with the screw cap to remove it.
These are the things i wanted to know when reading reviews before yet another travel mug purchase. Can i drink from it, on the move, without scalding the roof of my mouth. This design delivers your drinks as if drinking from a mug. Does it fit a ‘regular’ costa and mcdonalds coffeeanswer yes3. Does it sit well in the various cup holders in vehicles i drive.
I was looking for a good travel mug and this one is awesome. No leak, easy to hold in my hand, doesn’t take too much space.
I’ll admit when i originally got this out of the box i was disappointed to see it had a non-conventional screw top compared to the clip-top types you get everywhere else. On inspecting it properly i’ve found that this is the perfect travel mug for what i needed. It keeps liquid warm way longer than i will wait to drink it and the lid is ingenious. Unlike normal travel mugs, there is a screw in stopper that is clipped in 2 inches below the screw on lid. The stopper has little holes all around its rim to allow the flow of liquid to travel through, and as a result tightening and loosening the stopper allows you to go from fully sealed to free flowing liquid in any direction you pour it. Much better than the traditional lid designs where a lapse in focus can result in spills. It also fits nicely into my car’s small european cup holders and is perfect for in-car use as the deep rim of the lid and stopper design prevent spills from occuring, so you can leave the stopper loosened for easy access to your coffee on the move without making mess.
I was exactly looking for a mug like that. That can keep my drink hot (for at least 2 hours, warm-ish up to 3), and put it in my bag without being afraid of any spilling. The only problem maybe, is that it is not the most easier to clean.
I absolutely love my mug and i’d definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a hot drink on the go.
All the other travel mugs want to be this travel mug. Looks and feels like quality. In fact i’d say other cups i’ve had are incomparable; this one is so good. The best travel mug i’ve ever seen, owned, drank from and urinated in. *edit price has shot up (for xmas?) used to be about £12.
Bloody hell this is expensive for what it is. Yes, i know i got it to review but even so. In reality it’s a split star rating. Five stars for quality and two stars for value. It is very well made and has an air of quality about it. I’m sure that using it on the underground filled with your soya milk skinny latte or whatever other trendy coffee is in vogue will not mean you suffer the embarrassment of being seen with a cheapo far eastern poundland travel mug. Which is where this is made by the way. Probably in the same factory as the aforesaid cheap travel mug you can pick up in millet’s for a fiver. It is to be fair well designed and is nice to hold. It also has a decent width bottom so not unstable when plonked on the desk. The main bit unscrews to allow you to fill the flask and a centre section that also unscrews (but is held in place) to allow you to drink your beverage. As a side effect this design of top allows much easier cleaning of the mug which is always a good thing. The flask is a combination of stainless steel, plastic and rubber so not easily breakable.
Keeps my drinks warm for 2-3 hours.
Not left a review before but felt this mug deserved one. A lot of reviews say it leaks, yes it will leak if it’s not upright. However, having tried many of these mugs i’ve never had one that keeps the tea as hot as this one. If you preheat it your drink will be piping hot still 2 hours later.
Hoping they love it for christmas thank you :-).
Third one of these i’ve ordered for a friend. Keeps my coffee hot for 3 hours and won’t spill if lid is securely tightened.
This is my third one of these over the past 4 years – i managed to break the screw-in lid on the first one and the second one seems to be leaking after it was dropped when getting it out of the dishwasher. They are not indestructible but they are pretty sturdy. They are great for keeping my morning coffee hot – from 7. 30am when it’s filled until lunchtime, it’s still pleasantly hot. I am pleased with this drink holder because the drinking rim is 260 degrees, the stopper in the centre just needs a quick turn or two to loosen it enough to drink, you then tighten it back up again and your drink it kept hot, saves faffing with separate cups like you do with a flask. This does need to stay upright though – please don’t think it’s leakproof and allow it to lie down or else you’ll have a big puddle to wipe up.
It is good but i can’t get used to the new style of lid.
This is a great item, all metal internal construction, with a screw inner top for 360 degree opening for degree.
A fab travel mug; we now have three. It keeps your hot drinks piping hot for hours.
