Contigo Astor 16 oz.Stainless Steel Vacuum Thermal Travel Mug
Leaks When turned over
Purchased 2 of these in December and both leak when turned on their side or turned upside down. This has never happened with the other ones that I purchased. I think the leak is where you push the button to be able to drink. Very disappointed that both leaked. To much and too late to send back:(
Back for Round Two!!!
Ordered five of these for Christmas last year. Now that time has elapsed I checked with giftees for their input! They all love them!! The best description was from my son who said it was 'insane' how long his coffee stayed hot! I had gotten the brown sugar, green and purple ones. They are gorgeous colors, but that brown sugar....WOW! Now I'm back for round two...Christmas this year...need four and one for me!!!
Not one drip
Best coffee mug for no spills. Does not keep thing warm by any stretch of the imagination.
not so happy this time
We had two of the old ones which we LOVED but my top wore out ,so I got this new one today in the green.it is a great color,and a good design,BUT it has a big dent in the side that did not happen in shipping,the box it came in is not damaged. Should never have been shipped like that,so back it goes for a replacement. I don't like to have to pay the extra shipping!!!
This is the perfect thermal cup. I made tea one night and fell asleep without finishing my tea. When I got up the next morning I knocked the cup over. It did not spill. I opened the cup to dump the tea and found that it was still warm. The tea was tempid but still had some degree of warmth. That beverage sat for more than 6 six hours and it was still pleasant enough to drink without nuking it in the microwave. This is a terrific product.
PLEASE DON'T BUY!
Bought my first one in 2010 and loved it! After four years it doesn't insulate quite as well anymore and decided to buy a new one. The one with the lock button... big mistake!!! After 1 1/2 hours it's luke warm. Not worth the money - compares to those cheap plastic ones. Wish qvc would do a better quality control. Really disappointing after having such a great product four years ago. Shame on you Contigo!
Best Travel Cup
This new top is great. I have two of the patterned, older ones. I ordered this one for the lock and easier to clean top. Big improvement over the others. (Sometimes they would leak if fell over onto the button or depressed in a tote.) Disappointed new top doesn't fit on old cups, though. Better for cold drinks. Hot is just warm after an hour or so. Bought another for a gift.
I purchased this mug for my husband for Christmas. He has other travel mugs he takes to work and he said this one is his favorite. He said he loves that when he puts his coffee in it that it stays hot for hours and with his other ones that aren't so nice don't keep this hot for long at all. I will be buying another one to surprise him since he loves it so much!
Great travel mug
I use this to take coffee to work every day and it really keeps the coffee hot. But what sold me was when I put ice water in it at 9:00 in the morning, forgot about it, and there was still ice in it at 6:00 pm. I'm going to buy another just for water.
Works great but finish coming off
I bought this as I started taking coffee with me in the morning rather than buying it on the way in. It always took me too long to finish coffee and it would be stone cold. This truly holds the heat and it is still warm 3 hours later. However, in spite of only being hand washed and transported to work in my lunch bag, the finish is chipping off on the bottom. Love my green mug, but can see the chipping continue - won't look as good anymore. I'd recommend getting the stainless steel - no worry about chipping paint.
Just What I Needed
I had purchased some of these as gifts in the past, but decided I need one to keep next to my bed. I heard the advice that you can put it in the dishwasher if you select the stainless steel option so that is what I did. It has been in the dishwasher and it is fine. My intention is to use it just for water, but know I could use it for other beverages......
Love the Mug
I am so pleased with this purchase. The shape is perfect and easy to hold. I love that it doesn't leak and because of the button to open the spout I know exactly where to drink from it and am never distracted while driving. Often when I'm travelling, I will put my travel mug into my tote and lo and behold, whatever is left is usually inside my bag. This does not happen with the Contigo Astor travel mug! It's well worth the money.
