About this deal

You’ll also get notifications once the mug has reached your desired temperature and when it needs to be charged. So whether you're commuting to work or heading out on a camping trip, you can enjoy your favourite beverages without worrying about spills or leaks. All you need to apply is to have a debit or credit card, to be over 18 years of age, and to be a UK resident. We looked at how long they took to charge, how long they kept coffee hot, how versatile they were, and any smart functions.

When assessing ease of use, our Lab pros considered the helpfulness of the owner's manual, the type and readability of any controls, the feel of the mug, the comfort of drinking from it and the cleanability.Whether you're just on your commute or going on a long journey you can make your favourite hot drink, plug into your car and keep your drink hot for as long as you want! Based on the results from the SmrtMugg Pro — it was the top performer in our tests but is currently unavailable — we feel confident recommending this SmrtMugg model. You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. This stainless-steel travel mug comes with a non-spill lid, a car charger, a fuse replacement (for if your fuse breaks, and your human fuse is particularly short), an instruction manual, an LCD screen and power cord. We looked for mugs that delivered on their stated promise: did they keep coffee at a pleasant temperature over an extended period of time?

The thermocouple relays the temperature of the coffee in the mug to software that tracks the heat level over a four-hour period. Both Embers and the VSITOO are app-controlled (arguably, these are the only “smart” mugs because of their app connectivity), and even amongst that group, the Ember Travel can be controlled via touch functions on the mug itself.My slightly more scientific testing proved it be even more effective: It stayed within seven degrees of the set temperature for 95 minutes. Your Ember Travel Mug² can be used completely independent of the phone by tapping the 'Ember' logo twice, then the '+' or '-' on the mug to select your temperature.

This cup heats it back up from however cold it's got once I'm on my way, and I can then take as long as I like to drink it, as it's as hot as I want for as long as I like. Consistency Tests: I measured each temperature reading of the mug against the temperature it was set to—in general, if the mug was within +/- two degrees, it was considered accurate. New: A brand-new, unused, unopened and undamaged item in original retail packaging (where packaging . To determine how the coffee tasted over a two-hour period, our testers tasted a control cup and then coffee from each mug every 30 minutes, making notes about the bitterness, acidity, mouth feel and temperature sensation.She holds a certificate in professional culinary arts from the International Culinary Center (now the Institute of Culinary Education). And did exactly what it needed to do: it kept coffee consistently hot over an extended period of time.

Like many of the mugs, it needed to be “reminded” it was still on during our four-hour charging test, but simply moving the mug a bit was enough to turn off its sleep mode and restart the warming feature. At one point, the National Coffee Association recommended a serving temperature between 180-185°F, and a few articles I read latched onto that range. Although both the Ember and the Ember Travel use the same app to control temperature, the Ember Travel displays temperature readings in real time (the Ember mug just has a light on the bottom that flashes different colors, which were difficult to remember and interpret).

I considered some of the things I prized in past reviews I’ve written, like double-walled insulated carafes with coffee brewers. Then, after a few days of trying each, I moved to a slightly more scientific testing method, pouring boiling water into each mug and then checking the temperature with a meat thermometer at five-minute intervals for two hours. After the mug ran of out battery (which took about three hours) its tapered shape meant that coffee cooled at a much slower rate than any of its competitors. There are hotplates available where you can control the temperature, but because they don’t come with their own mugs, you have a different problem: these mugs are going to get hot.
