The PERFECT (almost) MUG!
September 29, 2018
My story may be a little different than most. I am a person with a disability and it's progressive so as I've aged I've lost strength and control in my hands and arms. It occurred to me recently, after some near misses, that an open mug of hot tea was becoming increasingly dangerous. We have Grande sized travel mugs that my hubby uses to make me a latte sometimes but for my middle of the night tea breaks I like to use our ancient Hot Shot and make my own. Problem is the receptacle height of the Hot Shot maxes out at 4.5" which will not accommodate most lidded commuter mugs. After reviewing all options out there I went with my YETI although the price was more than I intended. I AM SO HAPPY I DID! This thing is nearly perfect:
Sturdy as heck.
14oz rather than 12 because of it width.
The lid is secure but not too hard to put on.
The handle is big enough for my larger lady hands.
The lid slopes down towards the opening so extra liquid runs back in at the end of your sip.
The visual design is gorgeous and flawless.
5 year warranty but I know this thing will outlast me!
Beverage stays warm for HOURS so I can ditch my desktop coffee warmer.
My only teeny complaints are you have to be careful as you tip to drink as more will rush out than desired if you tip too quickly or far. I did burn my upper lip a bit before getting my technique down but that's on me. And it's a little heavy but overall I LOVE THIS THING! It is not spillPROOF but I am now safe from scalding sloshes. YAY YETI!
