If you’re frequently on the go, and you need your caffeine fix close at hand, a good travel mug likely features prominently in your daily routine.
Any mug with a lid that you can carry from place to place is technically a travel mug, but a poorly performing one will likely leave you with tepid coffee, spill stains on your clothes, and, in some cases, a moldy uncleanable lid that could make you sick.
With so many on the market, it can be difficult to distinguish the bad from the good. We put a dozen travel mugs to the test, evaluating each for how well it retained temperature, how easy it was to clean, and most importantly, how nice it was to drink from.
After more than eight months of testing, the Zojirushi SM-SE Travel Mug stood out as the clear winner, but there were other mugs that excelled in specific areas that we think you’ll like as well. For our full testing methodology and quantitative temperature test results, scroll to the bottom of this guide.
