Thread: Cup for drinking hot fluids? [quads]

  1. #1

    Question Cup for drinking hot fluids? [quads]

    I love to drink hot beverages but the glass gets to hot when I grasp it, do any of you guys have any cups that can hold the temperature but not burn you?

    There are a number of insulated mugs on the market. Here are just a couple:

    Thanks, the second one looks more practical and easier to grip then the first one with the huge "ear"

    The Thermoservs are good. I have been using the 34 oz one for smoothies and iced tea. I just hook my thumb in the handle. The Tervis mugs are excellent with a lifetime warranty, but pricey. The handles work well, but cost extra. I have been favoring them lately over the Thermoservs. They also come in 16 oz and 12 oz and have lids you can buy separately.

    34 0z Thermoserv

    20 oz Thermoserv

    20 oz Thermoserv wide

    24 oz Tervis

    I swear by these( http://www.gocontigo.com/autoseal-st...ravel-mug.html), you can hold them upside down and they don't leak. When you want a drink you just hold the button (it keeps the sippy hole open). It is a fairly big button and it doesn't require a lot, if any dexterity and as soon as you let go, it closes.

    I drink 3 cups of coffee every day, would be lost without my Black & Decker Brew 'n Go.

    Only bad part is the odd height of the cup, hard to find any similar height travel mugs.

    I used to have one of those and that's exactly why I got rid of it, I could never find a cup that worked with it. I have a Kuerig one now and love it.

    This is what I use. It has a big handle that I can wrap my quad paw through and it totally insulates the heat so you can't get burned. You can get it through Amazon. It is made by Thermos company.
