Contigo Astor 16 oz.Stainless Steel Vacuum Thermal Travel Mug
contigo travel mugs
these mugs do not hold 16oz , not if u put the top on so needless to say can't use much ice. Very dissappointed considering the price! Ordered previous ones that will hold 12oz and ice-will not send back because of QVCs shipping costs, so if u want the full 16oz do not order these. The poor rating is because of the 16oz claim is just flat not true
I love this Travel Mug and I'm not a fan of travel mugs. It feels good in the hand, keeps things colder longer, hotter longer and does not drip or spill. Does exactly what it says its going to do. Can't say enough good things abou it. The perfect gift for anyone.
HUSBAND LOVES THIS MUG!!!!
i ordered this for my husband because he is such an avid coffee drinker and loves taking it with him. He took it one day and kept it from 10"30 to 4"00 before it became cold. He LOVES his coffee mug. Can even turn it upside down and it WON'T LEAK OUT. Very good product. My husband would recommend this one to anyone.
Keeps me warm...
Love this thermal travel mug I can make coffee before I leave the house and I know hours later it's still hot... I'm interested in trying it with ice in summer I hear it does great with that also...
The 2 claims that convinced me to buy this were the non-spill lid mechanism and the ability to keep coffee hot for 4 hours. I do like the lid and can work it easily while driving. But it doesn't keep coffee warmer any longer than other thermoses I've tried...even if I put hot water in it to heat it up first before the coffee, it still didn't keep coffee hot.
THE ONLY MUG I NEED!!!
After many spills with other travel mugs, the Contigo travel mug is perfect!! It keeps hot liquids piping hot for about 2-3 hours, not 5 as advertised, but that's plenty of time to drink my coffee or hot cocoa. The mug is easy to grab, the locking mechanism is wonderful, and I will purchase more of these for future gifts. Thank you!!
Hard to use
As a heavy coffee drinker I purchased this to assure that I would not spill coffee while using around the computer. In that respect it was a good buy. However it is a bit difficult trying to hold down the lever that opens the top so you can drink the coffee. After a while my hand gets tired holding it down. Other than that it is not to bad a product.
I didn't think this travel mug could get any better; but it did. Now if I need to put this in my purse, backpack, or anywhere with hot coffee or tea inside, the button that opens the sipper area cannot accidentally be pushed to open. GREAT idea!!
I purchased many of these about three years ago to give as Christmas gifts to family and friends.
When we were in Alaska a few months ago, my husband noticed that our son was still using his. He told my husband that there is nothing that keeps his on-the-go coffee as hot as this Congo. That's quite an endorsement!!
I did not see these on QVC for a while and was wondering if they'd been discontinued. They were back in December and I ordered three more, because often someone will leave with a cup of coffee in one of our Contigo travel cups and forget to return it. (I can't say that I blame them.)
Can not drip coffee all over yourself when getting in car or when you knock it over. Coffee still hot an hour & half later. What more could you want?
I just received two of these travel mugs to give as Christmas gifts. They look very nice and seem to be a good size but I was surprised to find just a mug in the box with no written information included. Yes, I know how to use the mugs (locking feature) and I know the top is dishwasher safe (because I saw the on air presentation), however, the people I am giving the mugs to will not have that information nor will they know how long to expect the mug to keep liquids cold or hot unless I either tell them in person or write something down to include with the gift. A bit disappointed.
BTW: I'm required to select either 'yes or no' for recommending the product to a friend (which is difficult since I'm not the one who will use them) so I'm clicking on YES for now.
Not as good as previous one
I just received two of these today. I don't believe they are as well made as the previous ones I bought. They don't seem quite as heavy. Hope they work as well as the others. I use mine mostly for water with ice. The bottom of the older ones had rubber on the bottom and up the side and would not slide on the counter. These do not. I set them down on the table and they move quite easily. Hopefully I can come up with something to fix this.
a little disappointed
first of all, I love the fact that it doesn't spill. I sit it next to my computer everyday when I'm at work. However, it doesn't keep the coffee hot as long as I expected. After about an hour and a half, the remaining coffee in my cup was lukewarm at best. I'm going to try it a few more time before I make a decision on keeping it or returning it. I realize that most people finish their cup of coffee in less than an hour and a half so it may not matter to many.
