Rated 4 out of 5 by Mervich Stanley One-Hand Vacuum Mug
I ordered two of these (blue)?basically because of the outstanding reputations of the Stanley brand name and L.L.Bean. I was not disappointed! The mug seems to be leak proof, keeps coffee hot for hours (provided one heats the mug with hot water prior to filling with coffee) and looks pretty slick too! Two observations: the plastic lid assembly has an odd taste/odor?and the push button is indeed a bit stiff to operate. Am hoping the odd taste disappears with use. In-so far-as the button is concerned, if one has a touch of arthritis in the fingers, this mug could be somewhat painful to use. Easy to care for but one should be careful not to lose any of the soft rubber gaskets/seals when washing the lid?although, I don't see how they can easily come off.

I love this Mug. It's perfect in every way. It keeps coffee hot. It is easy to clean. No metalic taste - coffee tastes great every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by silverfoxskier excellent purchase
My husband left his behind at the train station and wanted it replaced. As a Valentine's gift I bought him a new one. It was the ONLY kind he wanted. He loves it, I have used it, and I love it. I will have to purchase myself one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CladinLLBean Great basic thermos for on the move or at work
Works well, keeps tea hot and is easy to use with the "one-hand" button. It fits in my bicycle bottle-cage holder. I have been using it at work, too, since it keeps my tea hot for a long time.

I've been using this mug daily for about a week and a half now and, in my experience, it doesn't live up to the hype. Well constructed, but keeps coffee hot for two hours, at most. Not that big a deal if you have only a cup or so each morning, which you can finish off pretty quickly, but if you wanted to keep it longer or use for something like soup for lunch 4 hours later, it would be lukewarm at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheSatyr Hands down THE best!!!
Over the years I have been through literally dozens of travel mugs. They either lost their heat far too quickly, didn't seal completely or were difficult to clean. I was happy to find this mug has none of those issues. First off, it seals tightly and doesn't leak AT ALL!!! Shake it all you want, it will stay sealed. It does in fact keep beverages hot for an hour, but not much longer when exposed to very cold conditions, which may be why some didn't like it. My coffee doesn't last long enough to get cold usually, but if I get distracted and forget my coffee and come back, a couple to 3 hours later, it will be still hot or at the very least very warm. During the summers the mug is nice frosty cold beverages. It keeps them nice and cold for seemingly ages.So easy to clean too, the three pieces and a spring that make up the top of the mug, disassemble and reassemble simply. I love this mug and use it daily!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLohmann The holy grail!
This mug is amazing! I poured my coffee 2-1/2 hrs ago and it still scalded my tongue when I drank it. So worth the money

Rated 5 out of 5 by KansasBean Works and feels great
This is a fantastic commuter "mug" (more like a small thermos). It keeps stuff that's hot hot for at least a couple of hours (so far I've consumed all my coffee before it had the chance to get cold), is easy to operate and feels good in the hand, and is easy to clean - despite the slightly weird design. It's also spill proof - in real life. I use travel mugs daily and this is the best one I've tried.

Looks good but coffee only stays hot for an hour at the most. I have an older Bean mug that keeps coffee hot all day, but Bean doesn't sell it now. The Stanley mug is not worth your money.

Bought it as a birthday gift for my honey, he loves it so much I bought one for myself. It hold the coffee warm longer than any other mug we've tried - and we've tried a lot of them.
