    How does that button work, you press to drink? If your sitting at a desk can you just leave it open?

    You can say that again. After my mother died we got my father's old Aladdin Stanley green alumiunm thermos. After thirty years....just as good as when he bought it.

    I use an insulated Klean Kanteen. Keeps my latte hot all morning long. One drawback...it does not come with a cap for drinking beverages, just a screw cap that completely seals it. The coffee cap is extra but worth it in my opinion. So, it doubles as an insulated water bottle or travel mug. And, they are available at most outdoor stores, like REI.

    On mine, you have to push it in every time you drink. They might have some that you can toggle open/closed. I think the ones in the link are push to drink as well.

    I like the idea so much I started using a Contigo nalgene bottle with the same type of lid.

    This is the answer to your question:
    One-handed operation for convenient drinking during activities - just press the button to sip; release the button to automatically seal the mug.
    It could be worse.

    Just so happens this morning that my local shop had a bunch of mugs out and on sale, most were just plastic travel or ceramic mugs but they did have this one that met the criteria. It's double walled and the outside didn't heat up at all with a hot beverage inside. When I get home I'll do some testing how long it will actually keep something hot but so far it seems better than the other one I was using. The outside on this is raw stainless so it's not all pretty and brushed but should take on a cool patina over time. Best part is it was half price at $10.

    All the ones I use are freebies from work or our associate vendors. My coffee is lukewarm by the time I get to work. . At that point I just warm it up with fresh coffee.

    Hot coffee or cold coffee - who cares? As long as it has cafine I'm happy.

    But - I do like the Contigo mugs.

    Yes sir, but you can't use carbonated drinks though, the seal works that well, it builds up pressure.

    OXO:



    It stays very hot, the seals are excellent, and it has a very thin lip so if you're like me you don't accidently slurp all over.
