Rated 5 out of 5 by toedoe Exceptional vacuum mug
After going through many a coffee mug/thermoses, I have found the best. I was horrified by the way my mug lids held the debry from the coffee and dairy products I used. Although I would scrub the lids they seemed to never get clean, After reading the info on this thermos and noting that it was a Stanley (no longer made in the US, saddly) I purchased it. The lid is made for easy cleaning. It comes apart! All solid parts, no way some left over dried liquid product could get into any crevices. And it keeps my coffee hot longer than any other travel mug I have owned. I am buying 2 more. to give away as gifts to my unsuspecting family/friends who use those other travel mugs. It also keeps cold liquids cold.

I've tried a lot of travel mugs and was always disappointed by the leaking and the difficulty in cleaning. This mug is awesome. My wife has already tried to steal it. Let's cover the basics
1. Leak Proof? Yes. I've tossed it in my messenger bag everyday and have not had one leak. The first day, I filled it and turned it upside down and left it on the counter. No leak.
2. Cleaning: Super easy to clean. The mug manages to be narrow enough to fit in a bag easily while also being wide enough that it is very easy to clean. I didn't even need to use a brush I could easily just stick my hand in there with a sponge. The lid comes apart for cleaning.
3. Heat retention: I noticed that if I was drinking tea without milk (to cool it) the tea was almost too hot to drink. I decided to fill the mug with hot tea and let it sit. I returned 4 hours later and it was hot. Not warm; but, hot. This is great news because most of the time I"m filling it with coffee that has been cooled a bit with milk and I want to retain as much heat as possible.
The best mug I have ever encountered. I'm going to buy my dad one for Father's Day. He'll love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by burghgrrl Does not leak!
I've used this daily for the past two weeks since receiving it. Each day I throw it into my bag for my commute and I arrive at work with hot coffee and NO drips or leaks. It's utilitarian and will last forever. Much better than the majority of the goofy, trendy looking mugs that are on the market.
