Travel Mug Review and Giveaway from Reuseit.com!

I am a working mom, so I am always on the go!  I hate all the disposable cups and containers that I have to deal with constantly at work and everywhere else in the world so having a variety of reusable containers that work for me on-the-go is a must depending on what beverage I want at the time.  Until recently I was lacking a great travel mug that would work for me to use for my loose-leaf tea!  It was a great day when I discovered Joemo travel mugs at Reuseit.com !

SAPsDaDa chose the Joemo travel mug since he was in need of a good to-go coffee mug for his trips.  A long car drive without coffee would prove disastrous for him!  The stainless steal mugs we had were either too small for  his coffee preference, were not insulated so did not keep it warm long, or did not fit in his cup holder.  From the description we read on Reuseit.com the Joemo travel mug would alleviate all of these problems he was having!

The Joemo mug is:

  • Vacuum thermos – keeps hot or cold for 6 hours!
  • Includes a stainless top plate and fine mesh removable tea filter
  • Smart, simple open and close, 360 degree drink-top – leak-proof with screw top lid on
  • 16 oz mug fits all car drink holders
  • Voted “the best travel mug” by Hammacher Schlemmer Institute

Once we received it in the mail I claimed it for myself!  I work many nights closing at my job and am very tempted to consume food or drinks that are not too healthy for me.  Normally at home I would brew some tea and relax with some mint/spearmint/lemongrass blend!  I had no way of bringing my favorite drink to work until the Joemo mug.  Now I put my tea looseleaf herbs in the bottom of the mug, lock in the filter, poor hot water in, lock on the cap, and put it in my bag for work!

The Joemo Travel Mug comes with a filter for making tea, and a nice carrying case!

Not only have I been able to enjoy tea at work for the past week now to continue in my healthy lifestyle outside of my home, but I am amazed at the Joemo mug.  Number one amazement: It does not leak!  It has a vacuum seal on it and the double cap so nothing gets out no matter what position it falls in after I toss it into my canvas work bag!  A big plus since work papers and my uniform would not be pretty covered in tea water!  My second amazement: it stays hot for hours!  The insulated thermos keeps my tea hot from the time I leave for work until the time I wish to drink it later that night at work.  Since there is no way for me to brew tea at work (save for heating up water in a microwave, which I do not do) this alone made it possible to enjoy my tea at work.

mmmm nice hot tea!  And it stayed that way for 4 hours until I could take my break and drink it at work!

With the summer coming up and trips to the farm early in the morning to do our CSA worker share occur I know SAPsDaDa will get just as much use out of this travel mug as I am now.  It holds a larger volume of coffee than his other mugs, will keep it hot the whole trip, and fits inside of the cup holder so he have to hold it or search for it on the car floor!  I also feel safer knowing that with the special one-button-push to open top and 36 degree drink lid will make it so he won’t even have to take his eyes off the road to drink his beloved coffee.  Way to think of all the things we both needed in a travel mug!

The instructions for use were very simple and after first time use were easy to remember.  The only down-side to the Joemo mug has been that it is only hand-washable and cannot be put in the dishwasher.  Fortunately the instructions on disassembling the top cap were included, easy to follow, and after reassembling the mug worked perfectly as it had when we just received it!  I always worry about breaking things when I take them apart and I have no worries with this mug.

What SAPsMaMa Loves about the Joemo Travel Mug:

  • Stays hot for hours! (Beware, will be very hot, if you wish to drink it right away don’t heat your water up too hot because it will stay that temperature for a long time!)
  • Leak proof!  No matter what position it is in it has not leaked.  The double cap gives me the confidence I need for carrying it in my bag
  • I can use it for my tea, and SAPsDaDa can use it for his coffee!  Very versatile mug that fits all of my family’s needs
  • Fits our car cup holder so we don’t have to keep it on the floor of our car, which is unsafe
  • One push opens the top for drinking and closes it, 360 degree spout makes it so we don’t have to take our eyes off the road to drink!
  • Easy use and cleaning instructions

Suggestions for improvement:

  • Having the mug able to be cleaned in a dishwasher.  It’s the one thing SAPsDaDa doesn’t like!
