My husband will soon earn a new title - "Daddy of TWO!"
Shh, don't tell him, but he's in for a surprise. With the "big sister" being only 16 months, late nights will turn into even LATER nights and early mornings magically transformed into even EARLIER mornings.
He's going to need his daily dose of caffeine for sure. In his case, it's TEA. He's one of those snobby loose-leaf fancy tea drinkers (and I say that with much love). Recently, he gently let me know that my morning coffee, was "tainting" his travel mugs and that the coffee flavor was overpowering his tea.

I noticed that most of our travel mugs had some sort of plastic interior, that absorbed the flavor of whatever was put in them, and realized he was right - all the mugs now tasted like coffee. The solution according to my hubby?
I shopped and shopped to find a travel mug with a stainless interior and exterior, and actually purchased a few online, that were marketed as stainless. However, when they arrived, were only stainless on the outside and plastic inside.
Enter, Contigo! Finally, a company that has a wide selection of stainless steel exterior AND interior travel mugs that WORK! I love the cool, streamlined design that is perfect for a man or woman. The AUTOSEAL® West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug, below comes in (11) brilliant colors that would suit any coffee or tea drinker in the house. I love this in blue!
AUTOSEAL® West Loop Stainless Steel Travel Mug (Vacuum Insulated) - 16 oz.
Contigo, agreed to let us review one of their Stainless Steel Travel Mugs and put it to the test. We chose the AUTOSEAL® Randolph Stainless Steel Travel Mug (pictured below).

We were so happy to find that this travel mug finally had a stainless steel interior, as well as exterior which means NO funny flavor seeping through from one use to another. One of the awesome features about this mug, the AUTOSEAL® technology intrigued us - but does it actually work? The answer...YES! No more, forgetting to slide the cover forward, or backward to seal & open the opening. The spout automatically seals, and when you want to drink you simply press the button on the handle.
I even tested turning the whole mug upside down while filled with 16oz. of liquid (no, not HOT liquid for the test) inside. Result, NO SPILLS. Not even a tiny drop. I think I'm going to start making my toddler drink out of this, instead of her sippy cup!
Whether it's iced tea or hot tea or coffee this travel mug keeps hot drinks HOT for 4 hours and cold drinks COLD for 12 hours! This is MY new favorite mug....err if I can pry it from my husband's tea drinking hands.
Plus, this design comes in (4) classy colors - gunmetal, berry, midnight blue and silver so you can have one for each person in the family. Pretty sure I'm never going to buy another cheap-o travel mug again, as long as Contigo continues to make this stellar product!
