 Tips And Advice for Buying Portable Beverage Cups

When you are on the hunt for the best portable drinkware, there are certain things that you should look out for. Here are some tips to help you choose the best drinkware for you:

  • The Online Reviews

There is nothing worse than reaching for your coffee and realizing it is lukewarm. Most of the time, there is no way of knowing how good the heat retention of a product will be. This is where online reviews come in handy. We live in a time where past buyers have a platform to share their positive and negative product feedback with the world. Before investing in a brand, be sure to look at what the public has to say about it.

  • The Size

While travel mugs come in most sizes, the one you choose will ultimately come down to personal preference. A standard travel mug will hold approximately 16 ounces, enough for a sufficient dose of caffeine, but they might be anywhere from 8 ounces to 64 ounces.

  • The Material

Usually, these cups are made from either stainless steel or plastic. When buying a travel mug, consider how efficiently the different materials will insulate your drink. There are many pros and cons to either stainless steel, or plastic, e.g., plastic might be more affordable and light to carry, whereas stainless steel is sturdier and will do a better job at keeping your drinks hot/cold.

  • The Type of Lid

There are various styles of lids. Different types of lids will attach differently to your mug. Examples include snap-on lids, screw-on lids, press-on lids, bottle caps, thermos caps, caps attached to the mug, and caps with handles. Another aspect of mug lids to consider is how you drink from them; some lids open with a thumb-slide function while others have a permanent sip-through opening. Other examples include flip-top openings, rotate lock openings, press-button openings, straws, and dual-purpose caps. Decide which one will be more convenient for you.

  • The Design

Most people would like to carry around a simple, practical travel mug, but there are several ways that you can go for if you want to stand out a bit more. This includes iridescent, neon, marble, glitter, and woodgrain designs. You also have the option to have your own custom travel mugs made. Many businesses create custom printed mugs for their employees and loyal customers.
