Contigo Astor 16 oz.Stainless Steel Vacuum Thermal Travel Mug
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.
I bought 6 of these for Christmas presents and they went over great. I am going to buy some more to keep around the house. This is a great gift idea for all occasions and for people on your gift list. I gave them with a Starbucks gift card. They really work great. I included some other products I bought similiar to this one (My recommendations)...the vacuum seal is great keeps hot and cold for long periods of time...and they really do no leak!
the new cups don't fit in my cup holder in my car. I like the old one better this is the second I bought. first one I drop and broke miss the old one.
Sweetheart of a travel mug
My husband and I were having a coffee-themed St. Valentine's Day so I ordered two of the Contigo Astor 16oz travel mugs in the beautiful red color. We both love these travel mugs and highly recommend them. They keep hot drinks hot equal to most thermal travel mugs, but we like that these don't spill when tipped over. I will order the taller version of this travel mug for cold drinks, but will use these 16oz travel mugs for hot drinks since they fit under our new Keurig K-45 coffee machine.
Finally; a travel mug that meets the requirements!
I have several travel mugs that will now be going in the trash. They never kept my coffee hot. This one does as promised. It also does not leak, spill or make a mess like the others. This will also save me money and trips through the drive-through.
Very happy with my purchase. Great for anyone, especially for commuters.
