design flaw ruined it for meJul 19, 2005
By A. Price
It's too bad, because OXO clearly put a lot of thought into the design of this travel mug. It really keeps things hot for a long time [5+ hours]. It doesn't leak, at all. It's sculpted to fit nicely into cup holders. It's nice looking.
However, it's impossible to ever really clean this thing. The lid has a complex spout and airhole which lead to an area that is off-limits to any sponges or washcloths. The result? Well, whatever you are drinking will, over time, become trapped in there and ... well, you can imagine the rest. I drank coffee with lots of milk from this mug. So I found myself using the ultra-hot tap at work to try to clean it out. I would do this with the lid clicked shut so the water could pool in the lid and the resulting stuff that oozed out while the hot water was going to work was pretty gross. Even if I did this once a week it wouldn't really be enough. What can I say? It skeeved me out.
After a while, some sort of liquid actually got trapped in there and I could hear it sloshing around, even when I had just cleaned it and let it dry for hours. Again: really, really gross. To me, anyway.
This may not bother you at all. If so, more power to you and you should get this mug. You'll probably love it. I just couldn't get past it.

An Unhygienic design flawJun 17, 2006
After 5 weeks of daily use, it’s time to throw it away. Despite my best cleaning efforts, the lid eventually began to smell bad. Liquid eventually got trapped inside the hollow area of the lid & is impossible to clean out without breaking the lid open (which I did). The brownish, moldy, & putrefied semi-liquid that came out was beyond disgusting.
To those of you that own this mug, may I suggest?
• Rinse the mug immediately with water after drinking if you can’t wash it right away.
• After washing the lid, give it the “sniff” test. If the lid smells “funny”, or just downright stinks, throw it away or return it & demand your money back. That hollow area inside the lid is a bacterial breeding ground. It’s not worth getting sick over. The lid wasn’t designed to be disassembled. I permanently broke mine when I took it apart.
The spill-proof design of this mug is in my opinion, the best I’ve seen so far. It definitely lives up to the term “spill-proof”, which is why I purchased this mug in the first place. If Oxo can implement a lid design that will disassemble for cleaning, it would fix the only flaw that I can find on an otherwise well made product.
I’m ready to give this product a second try, but right now I & my money will hold-out for version 2.0.

Travels well - no leaksOct 28, 2004
By Food Prep Fanatic
I took this on an extended road trip and used it for both hot and cold drinks, most of the time it ended up rolling back and forth on the passenger comparment floor. At the last stop I filled it with cold water and threw it into the trunk while getting my car cleaned inside and out.
Well, frankly, I forgot about it and it bounced around my car trunk for a couple of months and when I went to salvage it and drain the water out, I observed that not one drop had leaked out.
Not only did the seal hold the liquid in and keep the crud out, but when I was actively using it the beverages stayed hot or cold for most of the day.
This is a handy travel mug because it fits in the cupholder of most cars and if not, it can roll around on the floor or car seat and still not spill anything. The one handed operation of this mug is ideal for road warriors: cell phone in one hand, mug in the other, one knee on the steering wheel! :)

A great mug!Mar 30, 2005
By Guy in California
This mug was so worth its price. Here are some comments:
1) I make 4 cups (as indicated on the machine) worth of coffee in the morning and then spend hours drinking it. The best thing about this mug is that it will keep the coffee at least moderately warm until well into the afternoon. If you pre-heat (which I don't), it probably would keep it even warmer.
2) I have found that it will leak a little if you don't follow certain precautions: Don't overfill it (leave at least 1/2" at the top (where the black meets the silver) and leave the top in the open position when you screw it on--otherwise it might compress the liquid and spurt out later). Also, it will leak if there's any "backwash" from a recent sip in the lid mechanism.
3) The directions say "do not place in the dishwasher," but I put it in the dishwasher every night with no obvious ill effect. (I don't use heated dry.)

***HOW TO CLEAN THIS MUG!***Jun 03, 2009
By Robert Paul Tesoro
I just figured out how to clean the lid!!! I love this mug becasue it will keep my coffee hot well into the afternoon and doest spill a drop. (I have the stainless mug) I have never been able to clean the top and know it is full of disgusting junk. Instead of buying a new one I decided to just force this one apart with pliers and a screw driver so I will know how to clean the next one. Luckily i didnt break anything and it is as good as new know. Here is how:
Step 1: With a flathead screw driver or knife pry off the top of the rubber button that says "OXO". it is about 1/8" thick.
Step 2: With a small screw driver unscrew the philips screw that is now exposed from step #1.
Step 3: Pull on the round part under the lid that has the large seal and it will seperate from the top of the botton.
Step 4: Remove all parts fron the top of the lid and pay close attention so you can put it back together.
Step 5: Try not to throw up when you see the 1/4" thick layer of mildew, bacteria, and mold, you were just drinking out of!!!
Step 6: Clean all parts and reassemble the Mug. Good as new!
