The Thermos Sipp Insulated Travel Coffee Mug -
Best 16 oz Stainless Mug EVER!

You just found the Best Insulated Travel Coffee Mug for sale! Buy this 16 oz stainless steel travel mug to keep your coffee hot for hours.

This amazing Thermos mug is leak proof AND it's available with or without a handle. If you've been looking high and low, reading reviews, and searching for the best insulated mug to buy, your journey is over.

Of course, one mug can't be the perfect fit for EVERYONE, so if this mug doesn't do it all for you and more (which it probably will), see my other favorite insulated travel coffee mugs at the bottom of this page for additional alternatives. Here it is...

The Thermos Sipp

This is a newer addition to my favorite travel mug collection. I bought this insulated travel coffee mug for my wife because she is very stylish and I knew she would love the design.

What I didn't know is that it would do everything perfectly from being:

- TOTALLY leak proof

- Easy to use and clean

- Keeps coffee hot for hours

(not as long as the Thermos King below, but longer than the Contigo mug, also below)

My wife actually leaves the lid off it for the first half hour because it stays too hot! I just load it up, add cream and carry it to work, then sip slowly over the next 3 or 4 hours and it stays drinkably hot the whole time.

It even fits into the really small cup holders in my old Subaru. I can throw it on the seat next to me or hold it in my lap, too, and I never worry about spills. I really can't say enough about this perfect insulated travel coffee mug. I LOVE it! Best purchase ever for a travel mug.

Thermos Stainless King

There's a reason they called it the "KING", because it is the best insulated coffee travel mug out there. This is the ruler of insulated mugs.

It has been reviewed by over 800 people on Amazon and received an average rating of 4-1/2 out of 5 stars.

Not only that, but most of the reviews that were less than 5 stars were for reasons such as "doesn't have a handle", or "It's perfect, but it's just a little too heavy."

If either of these complaints is an issue for you as well, see the bottom of this page for the perfect solution.

Here's what this mug does incredibly well:

  • Quality and Durability - It's incredibly well built, in keeping with the Thermos name. I remember my dad having his old thermos with him every day at the job site. It was dropped more times than anyone could remember and that thing wouldn't break. Stainless steel inside and out and built to last.
  • Amazing Insulation - It's extremely well insulated. This mug is insulated like a Thermos (after all it is a Thermos) and will keep your coffee piping hot for hours.
  • Style - They've put a lot of work into the design of this mug to make it stylish and sleek for a Thermos.
  • Car Cup Holder - It has the tapered bottom so it will fit into a standard car cup holder, which for most of us is critical.
  • Leak Proof - This mug has an awesome Leak Proof Lid! This is one mug out of a very few travel mugs out there with a truly seal-able, leak free lid. I'm still too nervous to do this regularly, but tons of people throw this mug into their bag with their papers, full of hot coffee and off they go.

Care Instructions: Do not microwave. Pretty straightforward.

The dishwasher story is a controversial subject for this mug. The Thermos website, and Amazon say hand wash only.

However, many people have washed this in the dishwasher without problems. Some hand wash the lid and the gaskets. A very few have had problems with leaks after using the dishwasher.

In short, I don't recommend it, but if you love using your dishwasher and don't mind buying a new mug if things go awry, I'd say go for it. Otherwise, a good bottle brush is a blessing.

Honestly, the only drawback with this coffee travel tumbler is the weight. It's a 16 ounce stainless steel insulated travel mug, built to last, so it is a pretty solid mug. If weight is a concern for you, definitely check out the Contigo (bottom of page), my #2 favorite travel mug overall.

P.S. The color of the Thermos King is actually Midnight Blue (it kind of looks black in the photos, but it's actually dark blue).

Thermos Stainless King
With Handle

I'm sorry, were you saying that this WOULD be the perfect insulated travel coffee mug if only it had a handle?

Voila! It's available with a handle.

The only drawback is that the handle is not of the same durability as the rest of the mug.

That being said, if you can be kind to the handle, this mug is a fantastic handled version of the "King".

My Other Favorite Travel Mug

The Contigo is my other favorite insulated travel coffee mug.

It is similar to the King in many respects:

  • Stainless Steel
  • Well Insulated
  • Leak Proof
  • Quality Construction

Where they differ is that the King is more durable.

Also, the King keeps coffee hot longer. For many people that extra heat retention makes a big difference.

The Contigo, on the other hand is more stylish and is less bulky feeling. It also comes in a ton of very cool colors.

Well, I hope you enjoy these very popular mugs.

Thanks for visiting and reading my reviews of the best insulated travel coffee mugs. Wishing you all the best in your quest for the best mug.
