What a fantastic Valentine’s gift this will make.
Never spill another drop. 100-Percent spill- and leak-proof travel mug uses exclusive AUTOSEAL technology to prevent accidental spills. Press the AUTOSEAL button to sip, and release the button to automatically seal. This self-sealing lid technology is combined with a double-wall, vacuum-insulated, stainless steel mug, providing exceptional temperature retention. Beverages stay hot for 6 hours or cold for 18-hour.
The Contigo Autoseal West Loop is the ultimate bargain mug, but don’t let the price tag fool you. Featuring the company’s Autoseal lid, this mug keeps your gear, car, and pants dry when road conditions deteriorate. The West Loop is dishwasher-safe and easily converts into a tea mug by adding a compatible infuser. Our only gripe: You have to hold down the top button while drinking, but that’s a small price for dry jeans.
- Vacuum insulated double wall stainless steel keeps beverages hot for 6-hour and cold for 18-hour
- Fits most standard car cup holders
- Hand washing recommended; lid is dishwasher safe
- Made from BPA Free material
- Patented Autoseal lid is 100-percent leak proof and spill proof and offers convenient one handed drinking
You might wonder how the Contigo Autoseal travel mug manages to be spill proof and keep the temperature of its contents so well controlled, so let me see if I can adequately explain. The photo you see of the lid above shows the small vacuum sealed opening at the top which is released when you push the rectangular button on the front of the travel mug. The vacuum sealed lip helps control some of the temperature, but the most important feature in keeping your beverage hot or cold is the stainless steel double walled body of the travel mug. I’ve done my best to test this spill proof travel mug by tipping it over, knocking it down, shaking it, and holding it upside down to no avail…not one drop of the liquid inside has ever found its way out. What I should make clear too is that because of the tapered design of the body and the rubber grip on the lid, there is not much of a chance that you would ever spill your travel mug anyway. With the push of a button my steaming hot tea is readily available, but never makes an unscheduled and unwelcome appearance. My only very minor beef with this travel mug is that with a hot beverage, the top rubber grip part that goes around the lid comes in direct contact with the contents inside, and can become very hot to the touch, while the rest of the body always remains cool.
I cant say enough good things about the Contigo Autoseal leak proof and spill proof travel mug. It is just so well constructed and manages to provide functionality that until now has been promised frequently but almost never accomplished. You should definitely make it a point to pick one of these up from Amazon because once you get used to having a piping hot or ice cold beverage within reach from your morning commute through to your lunch break you will wonder how you ever lived without having such an option.
