Contigo Travel Mug 470ml
My family have each got one of these mugs in all different colours. I was delighted to see John Lewis doing a purple mug, so I ordered it.
The purple mug advertised is in-fact the 'Raspberry' one, which is pink. I will be returning this as I already have a pink one in the house, but am still giving 4 stars due to how brilliant they are.
They do not leak, last for hours and look great. The only downside is that if you do go for a coloured one then you have to hand wash the body to prolong the colour. The silver one you can use in the dishwasher though.

Better than most
These mugs do keep a drink hotter for longer but probably not as much as we would like. About 3 hours is the max we have managed but we do include milk in our drinks. This being said, if you have black coffee for example, you need to be careful you don't burn your lips! Easy to clean in the dishwasher.

My requirements when buying a travel mug:
1) it had to be strictly leak-proof
2) had to keep my beverage hot/warm for a number of hours
3) had to be something I could use on the go
This mug met each requirement wholeheartedly - even a year after purchasing.
1) - I have never had a problem with leaks. As long as you make sure you've put the cap on properly you are good to go.
2) - This flask keeps my morning coffee's hot from about 7 am to well over 10 am. Usually I've finished by then, but I have not come across a cold coffee yet.
3) - By being able to "press and drink" it means that if you're on a not so smooth journey, there is almost no chance of spillages if you are not drinking from the mug, and no fuss if you have to throw it straight back in your bag.
The body of the flask stays cool even with a hot beverage inside, The top does get warm but this is definitely relieving on a harsh cold winter morning.
Overall, this item is of exceptional quality. It's a great size, and its design is sleek and professional.
Care Advice: When you've finished using it throughout the day, wash it through with some hot soapy water and it is good to go the next day.
Do not be apprehensive about the price. It has surpassed my expectations and has been an excellent investment. I would never leave my house without it.

Great mug: No spills and hot for longer
Bought this mug 6 months ago. Will never go back to any other travel mug. You can carry this upside down in your bag...no spills ...ever....and you are hands free til you sit down on the train and get it out. I have used it on long hill walks...no pouring of thermoses.
It is more like a thermos that is a mug. When you want to drink...you push the button and the mouth hole opens. Release, and it shuts tight. I take a herb tea to bed in this. I can put it under the pillow and when I wake and need a hot drink...it is there. No spills on sheets. Brilliant. Highly recommend this product. So many of my friends have switched too.

Worth the expense!
I bought the stainless steel version of this travel mug for my husband, having tried numerous (inferior) travel mugs previously. This one works! It doesn't leak, keeps drinks very hot, and is dishwasher safe. He loves it, and can tell it cost over the average because it's perfect in every way! What can I say? He's worth it!
