Coffee Travel Mug Heat Insulation Test

Testing popular coffee travel mugs from Thermos, Chantal, Zojirushi, Stanley and Contigo to see how they perform at keeping liquid hot.


J McPhink says:

Do one for cold drink storage. Anyhow, I have a thermos mug and after just a couple of times in the dishwasher the paint started to peel. A year or so later and almost all the paint is gone from the top of the mug to about the middle of the logo. A 2nd mug I bought is starting to do the same. I use mine for cold drinks because I drink them so slowly sometimes. Great video by the way.

That is really useful review. Thanks

Ricardo Reyes says:

Hello, do you think the medal over the Thermos Stainless Steel (#6) it’s too hot to drink from it?

LKN4WAR says:

Thanks for review. In searching you tube there is one guy comparing zoji and Thermos nissan model. Saying the Nissan is a lot better on insulation. 2-3 hours longer for hot liquids. Unfortunately he doesn’t give temp readings. I do own nissan models and they are definitely impressive.

thermos king cup fan…winter here…coffee after sitting in car outside from 745am-5pm…still warm enough to enjoy

Michael B says:

Thanks for the comments everyone!

Jesus B says:

Awesome review, thank you very much.

Hindsight says:

Even though the Contigo got a poor heat retention rating I still prefer it. The fact is, if you drop or spill it, it will automatically seal unlike the other ones. Working around computers all day thats a big deal, we have more than one drink related incident in the workshop.

Marcelo Zanuski says:

OMG, you put a lot of time in this video.

Thanks for the great work. Very useful info.

Mike Walters says:

Who needs coffee hot 5 hours later maybee 2 hours max ,thats with an hour drive to work, get real . Besides to truely test a mug ,open lid to drink 1 time every 15 min for 2 hours then. Tell me what it is .who seals coffee up and never sips it,kinda ridiculous.

bvcb says:

just grabbed a zojirushi for 17 bucks on Amazon lightning deals and while the reviews were great I wanted to know how it would really hold up against my current contigo. this video was scientific, detailed, and objective oriented. just what I was looking for in a comparison test. great upload

Which one you like the best?

I have or have had most of these mugs with the exception of the chantals. Your test reflects my experience with them. Zojirushi out performs them all by a considerable margin. I can honestly say though, that the contego is the only one to truly disappoint me. I used it once and haven’t since. The lid really gets too hot. I thought the thermos king however, would have done better. You should check out the hydro flasks or even the klean kanteens, they’re not bad.

*Ahhh I love this product so much!!!!>>>**** I recently bought a double wall glass tumbler and I use that to drink my tea every morning… after my one hour commute to work, the tea is not as hot anymore. Now with this ember tumbler, my tea stay at a precise temperature and that is so cool that I can set that with just a turn of the dial or through my phone! The temperature and battery are displayed on the tumbler wall… I freaked out about how cool that was. Although pricy, I think this tumbler is well worth the money. And this is also an excellent gift to get for friends and family as well! Christmas is coming up… I can knock so many people off my list with this item. They also have mugs which I will soon be getting!*

Very helpful review! Thanks.

Don Thorvund says:

My mug won! Great job, Mike.

Denise Jackson says:

Thanks for your review. You did a great job!

Tim Joris says:

Hey man, thanks a ton for the comparison! I liked that you included the percentages, but you made a mistake in calculating the heat retention. You should always compare both starting and ending temperatures to the room temperature (about 73.4°F usually). So the heat retention would be: (Tendt – Troom)/(Tstart – Troom) and not Tend/Tstart. I’m not gonna bore you with the details (unless you ask for them). 

So for example the Stanley Classic would be (144.5-73.4)/(195.5-73.4) = 58.2%. Which is a lot worse than the 74% you calculated. This probably doesn’t even change the ranking but I thought you should know!


moonbastic says:

I came for the Zojirushi, but I was pulling for the South Park mug.

TheSonyGuy1 says:

Thought thermos stainless king would do better and surprised that he didn’t like contigo.

Max Dreska says:

the contigo snaplock cap lets alot of heat out too

Jeanette Yang says:

that’s pretty cool. I gave it a thumb up! :)

Nchidzi Nyasulu says:

zet says:

This video needs more views! Fantastic control experiment!

Miss Amazon says:

This review is SUPERB!! No unnecessary chat about stuff going on around you (that is very inportant!)
I was looking at the Contigo and now I’m gonna have a rethink.
Thank you for going the extra mile and posting an amazing review. Thank you SO much!!
