Here are some of the requirements that people look for when selecting thermal travel mugs. Probably first and foremost, it should be insulated in such a manner that it can hold both hot and cold beverages. The cover should be made so that the beverages do not spill. You definitely want the mug to be able to fit into either a cup holder or the holder in that comes with the car.

Another important factor that will be important especially if you are driving is the handle. To begin with you want it to have a handle that is sturdy and is easy for you to wrap one hand around and still continue to drive. We touched on the cover a littler earlier. You must remember that it must not only be able prevent spills, but you also want to be able to drink out of it and not spill the contents of the mug.

Have you ever tried to clean an insulated travel mug after the drinks have dried inside? I know that sounds yucky, but it actually leads us to a very important element when selecting a mug. You want to make sure that it is easy to clean.

The next element that we want to discuss are the covers. There are always several different kinds of covers. Covers can be very thin and fit over the mouth of the mug. For better coverage, you might want to select a mug that has a cover that screws on. You can also find mugs that have a flip-top cover. I have also seen covers where you squeeze the handles and the top flips up. You can also find various mugs that will take two hands to open and close the top based on pushing a button.stainless steel travel mug

The last element that is important when selecting insulated coffee travel mugs is the internal part of the mug. There are different materials that the inside of the mug is made out of. It can be made of plastic, steel and some ceramic material. A lot of the mugs are stainless steel and others are stainless steel with the inner wall being made of plastic. The mugs with the plastic inner wall should be insulated with two layers of plastic. Plastic walls can crack and end up leaking the beverage inside.

In our conversation today, we have looked at some how to pick insulated travel mugs. We have given you some features that you should look for when considering a mug purchase. Make sure that you understand you’re purpose for buying the travel mug. Decide which features are most important to you and then prioritize the features based on your needs.
