The main positive feature of this drinking cup is that he keeps absolutely tight. As long as you do not press the button, you can wave the cup freely back and forth, turn upside down and shake - no problem! This feature creates trust in the cup, so I can careless transport my tea in the rucksack at last without having to be worried about the rest of the bag contents. In addition, the tea added sugar can be distributed very well by shaking.
The cup also has a simple, elegant design. Here the cover is particularly noteworthy because the rubber coating ensures that one of the cup does not slip even when wearing gloves while holding and drinking from his hand.
Cleaning me this is no problem. Although the lid has a few angles, but just by the closure technique is everything gets good clean: wash clean, screw it, shake vigorously, turn and press the button - the water is shot with such a pressure through the cover that this then is safely clean , At least he is with me after half a year yet. Rinse relatively promptly provided after use.
Speaking rinse: The colored cups should only be hand washed, the lid is dishwasher safe. That should certainly heed, so that the beautiful color not going. After six months, I see with my (green) mug anyway slight scuffs on the floor and a tiny scratches in the paint, which can not really tell. In a colored cups so you have to be a total perhaps somewhat cautious for the optics.
The only minor complaint on my part is the length of time that a drink is kept warm. In the description includes these 4 hours. After 4 hours, the tea is with me, however, already cold. I give the cup for a pleasant drinking temperature for 2 hours, for laumwarm possible 3rd Cold drinks I have not tried.
Why this is, I do not know exactly, because my friend also has the Contigo WestLoop, but in silver, ie not painted. He confirmed that drinks stay hot with him for several hours. Whether So now with my mug what's wrong or I just to sip it often, so the drink cools down faster, I can not say.
+ Chic design
+ Bright colors (if you like)
+ 100% leak-proof
- Does not last quite as long as promised hot
Total of me a buy recommendation.
