    Awesome, glad we're in agreement.

    Luckily, I've discovered the PERFECT one: Contigo's AUTOSEAL West Loop Vaccuum-Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug. It has 17,500 positive reviews on Amazon, comes in a variety of sizes and colors, and basically needs to be part of your life.


    This seemingly average thermos actually features "Autoseal" technology, making it leak- and spill-proof. So you won't have to worry about your hot coffee landing in your lap when you stop short while commuting to work.

    The seal prevents any liquid from sneaking out, even if you turn the travel mug upside down. Magic✨

    Promising review: "This is the hands down the best travel coffee mug I've ever used. I have had horrible luck in the past of spilling coffee at the worst times, because I didn't know this product existed. I have spilled coffee on a supervisor at work (wanted to crawl under a rock), some random lady at the gym who was in the wrong place at the wrong time, even my kid has not been immune to my inability to keep coffee contained in a cup. There was also an incident where I spilled a full 12 oz of espresso straight into the passenger seat of my car and no one could sit there for a week, all because of an inferior travel mug that I knocked over while driving. This mug ended my bad coffee luck for good! I can fill it up, flip it over, shake it, it doesn't spill a drop!!! This feature alone is enough for me! It also keeps my coffee hot for a few hours. It's pretty durable too, I still drop my coffee from time to time." —Patricia K.

    Drinks in this Contigo thermos will stay hot for up to five hours or cold for up to 12 thanks to the "Thermalock" vacuum insulation.,

    Amazon reviewers have taken the time to rave about this awesome feature:

    "I've had this thermos for about a month now and I am very pleased with it. I put my hot beverage of choice inside the thermos by 5:40 a.m. (what am I doing up so early?). And at around noon it is still nice and warm (not piping hot, but definitely not cold or even tepid) so that's give or take 6 hours. I have repeated this exact ritual nearly every day and it will always be deliciously warm at noon time." —Diana G.

    "I bought two of these and am in love. It kept my ice frozen for 17 hours! I was on a road trip and the ice lasted from Minneapolis at 3 p.m. to Fargo at 8 a.m. when I woke up at the hotel the next morning. I was in such disbelief that I took a picture of it. I've recommended them to my family and two of my family members have bought them thanks to my recommendation. They love them too!" —B. Johnson

    It's also shockingly easy to clean. The mouth is wide enough that you can fit a brush inside and thoroughly rinse it out. You can say "goodbyeeee" to endlessly scrubbing the inside of the water bottle you currently own.,

    "The mug allows for easy cleaning as the underside of the lid flips open for accessing leftover residue and is dishwasher safe. This lets your mug stay looking brand new for several months after beginning to use it." —Amazon Customer

    "I like that it's very easy to clean. The lid can go in the dishwasher or you can flip up the lever and wash it well by hand. I actually flip the lever up and run hot water through it at work, then taken the whole thing home and wash it all by hand." —Iowa Diva

    This Contigo travel mug is available in 25 different colors and comes in 16, 20, and 24 ounces. It's perfect for anyone who loves to use their beverage container as an accessory (I see you, Starbucks lovers).,

    From a matte lavender to a "stormy weather" gray, you are sure to find a color that fits your ~vibe~. Many reviewers recommended hand washing any of the colored bottles, as the paint will chip off in the dishwasher.

    "These bottles are so great and the perfect size. I can fit a normal cup of coffee in one and it stays warm for hours. I’ve even put cold water in it, in which it stayed cold for hours, too! I love the auto seal capability and the locking mechanism, for extra peace of mind. I’ve already knocked it over at my desk and in my car and not a drop was spilled. The colors are vibrant and I love the stainless steel and feel to them. I use mine every day." —Christa Webb

    "The RADIANT ORCHID color is super vivid, and stands out from everyone else's coffee things at work. Just what I was hoping. It may scrape off a tiny bit if you drop it out of the car window, and it grates on the sharp pavement. FYI. If anything ever happens to it, I really will be in a state of peril until I manage to buy another one." —evan parker

    In my opinion, the best part of this bottle is the price. You can grab it on Amazon starting at $16.99. If you aren't convinced yet, just take a look at its ratings:
