Travel Mug Buying Guide

Travel Mug Buying Guide

Did you know that it is possible to get a Starbucks travel mug? Yes, you definitely can. And stylish and high-quality ones at that.

Below we take a look at some of the superb characteristics that Starbucks travel mugs have.

Great Heat Retention

You might not necessarily want your drink to remain extra hot all throughout the day but it should be able to still be drinkable when you get to where you are going. These mugs will keep your tea or coffee steaming hot for hours on end. They are not only stainless-less steel but also double-walled to ensure that they hold the heat in your drink.

Leak-Proof Seal

These mugs seal snugly. You can rest assured that you will have a sip without having to worry about spills and dribbles. Their locking lids help avoid spills even if you accidentally turn the mug upside down.

One-Hand Use

Trying to unscrew the lid to your mug every time you want to have a sip can be a hassle not to mention distracting, especially whilst driving. You can buy a Starbucks travel mug that has an opening. This way, you won’t have to unscrew the lid every time you want to sip on your drink.

You will be in a rush from time to time and accidents are more likely to happen when you are in a hurry. In case you accidentally knock off your mug in the process of rushing, these mugs are durably constructed and are able to take a couple of bangs without losing their sealing ability.


Nothing is more frustrating like trying to clean difficult to reach areas of a mug. While some of the mugs can be washed on a dishwasher’s top rack, others come with wide openings and lids that can be easily disassembled so that you can be able to clean them thoroughly.

Before Buying a Travel Mug Here’s What You Need to Know

Will you reheat your drink in the microwave? If you will at some point reheat your drink in the microwave, then a stainless-steel mug is not a microwave-safe option. Therefore, you will have to choose between plastic (though not all are safe. Be sure to read the instructions first.), ceramic, or glass.

Will you use your mug while driving? You will need a travel mug that fits snugly in your vehicle’s cup holder. Your travel mug should be perfectly held by your cup holder in a way that it does not rattle around and probably tip over. At the same time, it should not be so tight that you are unable to easily get it out for a sip. So, check the size of the mug’s base and compare it to your car’s cup holder measurements before you buy a mug. Also, ensure that if your mug has a handle, it is still able to fit in the holder.
