You know, there are so many reusable travel mugs out there nowadays, and I’ve seen some for $5 in random stores. So while the price is tempting for a reusable cup, the quality is just not worth the five spot if you are going to use a few times, realize it doesn’t keep your beverages at the temperature you want and/or it spills, and then tuck in the back of your cabinet. I love Reuseit.com, and have purchased many a reusable item on their site. The creator of this business started it from nothing and built into what it is today, a reputable, well-organized, responsive and eco-concious company with whom I enjoy making a transaction.
The day my package arrived from Reuseit.com with my free travel mug inside (which took all of 2 days) I felt as giddy as a little kid receiving my Toucan-Sam cup in the mail from the cereal box! The 16oz JOEmo XL Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug comes with a handy travel bag with shoulder strap and pockets so you can wear the mug while walking or traveling and have your hands free. The mug itself is tall, but shaped in a way that your hand grabs the mug at the narrow point near the top before it widens again for stability. The amazing thing is that as narrow and tall as it is, the mug doesn’t tip over because it’s slightly bottom-heavy. I’ve been using the travel mug daily and love that it keeps my coffee hot in the morning and water cold in the afternoon! Actually, the reusable mug is designed to keep beverages hot or cold for SIX hours!
The very best and innovative feature of this travel mug is the tea strainer inside. You can put loose tea on the bottom of the mug, add the tea strainer, then pour in the hot water, add cover and drink without getting the tea leaves in your mouth! Of course, you can also put the tea leaves on the top so you can remove them from the cup after brewing. This is by far the best travel mug I’ve ever used for its durability, temperature-control, and versatility.
I also love the JOEmo XL for the secure button seal on the top as well as the screw-close lid – it protects against accidents when my toddler picks it up to pretend to drink from it, which happens often. You just push the button and it’s locked closed! The mug is also the perfect width to both stabilize itself on a flat surface and not fall over like a lot of top-heavy cheaper mugs tend to do, as well as fit snug in my car’s cup holder so I don’t have to worry about accidental spills while navigating the traffic in the morning on the way to school.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
