I drink 16 oz of coffee my first hour at work so I guess I'm not really worried about it staying hot all day. I just fill it back up, I use a Bubba cup from wally world.

I used to work at a warehouse that shipped a lot of Bubba products, but never used any myself.

It was an 18 ounce. It wasn't one of the screw down tops that you had to remove to drink from, it had a flip top that you popped up to drink from. No matter how tightly you pushed in the little flipper, it leaked all over the second it got knocked over. When I tossed it out, I noticed there were spots inside about the size of a pea that looked like rust. I'm a thorough cleaner, and took care of it, never leaving anything in it between daily washing and drying in the evenings. It was just a complete waste of 25$. 

 

Wow sorry to hear that.  I guess you got a defective one.  I will say, no matter how much I clean mine it always has this faint odor of sweat, almost smells like a gym locker room.  The weird thing is there is no difference in taste, so i kinda just ignore it.

I just don't get how stainless steel can become so nasty. Mine went to hell in a matter of days.

I agree with Chris. I love Hydro Flask and have been pretty impressed at how long mine keeps water cold. I have never tried using it for hot drinks though. Coldwater, you must have gotten a defective one. Hydro Flasks seem to be very popular in Oregon (they are designed and sold out of Bend, OR), and I have never met anyone who does not love their Hydro Flask.

I highly recommend a double walled stainless steel Zojirushi tumbler. I make my coffee at 8am and it is still HOT by 2pm.

I'm almost set on the Zojirushi, but there are a few

low ratings on Amazon that complain about the durability of

the components and awkwardness of drinking from the bottle.

 

Has anyone with a Zojirushi experienced these possible problems?

My wife and I have had Zoji's for 5 years now. The components are easy to clean and haven't broken down. I had the Contigo tumblers before but they're a pain to clean properly as the components don't come apart.

Apparently the Zojirushi is very similar to the Thermos Nissan

in terms of form and functionality. In comparison, however,

the Zojirushi is easier to clean and more durable than the Thermos.

 

I can't argue with the insulation test video and the numerous testimonies

regarding the quality of this thermos.

No one that I know who has one has complained of these issues. Granted it is a small sample size, though.

I'm too pissed to give them a second chance. There was not one single redeeming quality to it. Never again.

Good luck! I have spent an obscene amount of money over the last few years on worthless thermal mugs. Currently, I have the Hydro flask, and as usual, am not impressed. It'll keep a coffee hot for maybe a half hour before going south on you. In an hour or so, it's warmish. At 25$ it's one of the most expensive I have owned, and ranks low on performance. Despite the screw down lid, it leaks from the flapper on top unless you're diligent in really pressing it down to seal, and even then it's hit or miss. I'm back to looking for another one, and will toss this one in the can when I find one.  This may be a front runner, and probably my next purchase.

 

I've got four of the new Contigo travel mugs with the locking lid. My wife and I have been using them every day for at least six months and we have yet to have one leak. I'm very careful with mine, but my wife tosses hers around like a pillow. Puts it in her document bag while laying on its side. No leaks. Ever. Now, they aren't great at keeping coffee hot, maybe a couple of hours, but they don't leak. Also, the new ones have hinged seals so that they can be thoroughly cleaned (unlike the original ones which were hard to clean and did leak.)

Long as I can get an hour or hour and a half of reasonably hot coffee, I'm good with that. And the cleaning thing is a big issue with me.

And it got here today. I bought the Snap Seal model in 20 oz. Cleaned it out,  put hot water in it, and turned it upside down in the sink. Been an hour. Opened it up to check and the water is still hot,  there is absolutely NO leaking. not one drop. AND, there is no smell of any kind. I think I have a winner here!

The Zojirushi is going for 33% off under

the Deals section of the EDC homepage if

anyone is interested. I myself just ordered one

after seeing the sale.
