To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I do not exactly know why but I like the taste of Coffee from a stainless steel vessel, which is why I got this set of two 400 ml mugs. These are made well. I cannot comment overly about issues of heat conductivity through the handles as coffee should never be made scaldingly hot anyway and I have no problem holding these cup's handles based on that particular piece of information. I am chuffed with these typically sized mugs and feel that I got exactly what I was looking for. However, I'd never contemplate glugging tea out of one of these because, unlike coffee, tea would not taste so good in a stainless steel container. Again, I do not know exactly why but it's one of those peculiar things isn't it.
These contain about as much liquid as ordinary porcelain coffee mugs, but have the advantage of being unlikely to be damaged if dropped on the floor. I've not noted any faults, and drink my tea and coffee without scalding my hands holding the hot drink. I've been able to put them under the basket of my espresso machine which is great, as it allows me to make espresso coffees directly into these mugs. The outer wall does get warm when boiling water is poured in, but not to the same degree that I'd expect an ordinary porcelain mug to.
Perfect for using for tea/coffee whilst walking. Most plastic cups which come with flasks, quickly let your hot tea turn cold, unless you drink it fast. Great when you have your lunch in minus temperatures, and you can eat and drink without the tea getting cold too fast. Would highly recommend. Also more durable than those plastic double skinned versions.
These mugs are really great, the double layer, which is not bulky, does not conduct the heat, so it does not get too hot and keeps coffee warm for a long time! The 400ml is a very generous size for a long morning coffee!! Very elegant with a comfortable handle, I have ordered another set!!
Bought these when work dispensed of the free vending machines. I wanted something sturdy that would survive the journey home, but also dishwasher proof. These have done the trick. Whilst they seem to hold heat well the sides do get very hot. That said, the handle stays cool to the touch. 4 weeks in and these cope in the dishwasher really well - they come out looking like new. Would give 5 stars if the sides stayed cool, but otherwise really pleased. Would highly recommend.
I would give 4½ stars if I could. They hold 400ml easily. Nicely made and slightly heavier than other insulated mugs. Although a double wall thickness, they are less than 3mm thick and sadly don't retain heat for much longer than an ordinary mug.
Seem to be ok...wanted them , or at least one, to take fishing.....keeps my coffee a lot hotter than a standard thermos cup so I guess that's better. Only gripe is that they seem to mark very easily inside so not sure how I will clean them effectively...maybe a bleach bath or metal scourer...? Anyway, I'm pretty happy with them..!
Had the mugs a couple of weeks and they are great. The outer wall is cool to touch yet the liquid keeps amazingly hot. Large handle makes it easy to use if you're outside with gloves on. Easy to clean, so all in all an excellent item. We got the 300ml which is a nice size for us. Can't fault them.
I bought this for the workplace as every cup I have ever had gets smashed through my clumsiness. This one has hit the deck several time and only suffered mild dents. But the best bit is this, you get two cups! I thought I had purchased one so was very happy :)
