For 45 cents it's a good deal. They're about 12 bucks on Amazon

u/Guazzabuglio · 63 pointsr/Coffee

I got this one at the Trenton Punk Rock Flea Market.

I also got this Zojirushi travel mug for my birthday. This thing is great. It'll stay piping hot all day, and most times I need to unscrew the lid and let it cool for awhile before I'm actually able to drink from it.

u/dagaetch · 60 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I'm very happy with my Zojirushi. Can't use a straw, but I've never had trouble with ice cubes. And it's insulated like a mofo, ice cubes stay solid overnight.

u/bryanvb · 47 pointsr/dataisbeautiful

Why buy a Keurig just to awkwardly fill and clean a tiny pod for single cup coffee? My mom does the same thing. Getting the grounds out of the pod takes forever. Why not spend much less on a single cup coffee machine with a permanent filter? It's easier to clean and you can make the coffee stronger. I have this one and love it.

u/chillywill8e · 34 pointsr/slowcooking

Could you just use a thermos?

u/[deleted] · 33 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Be aware that BPA-free plastics often contain other endocrine disrupters, sometimes even worse than BPA. Your best bet is to go with one that is uncoated metal (I believe many of them coat the inside with plastic to prevent the metal from reacting with the contents and producing an odd taste).

That being said, since the "what's the best insulated mug" question comes up on BIFL about every 13.6 minutes in average, I can confidently tell you the answer is Zojirushi.

One reviewer claims it is uncoated.

u/mishgan · 32 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

> hydro flask quality products

HydroFlasks are of extremely bad quality. For food (like stews, soups etc.). I love the Thermos Stainless King for food If you fill in a hot soup ~80°C in there it will be still mouth burning hot a good 10 hours later. TIP: when making a stew you can actually have it be slightly undercooked (not talking raw meet, but let's say a bit chewy still), as it will keep on cooking in the thermos. similarly I had some incredible stews, because after transferring them from the hot sauce pan straight into the thermos it kept stewing for another 8 hours, and the meat was basically falling apart. had those on a great amount of hikes and treks.

stanley is also great, but most are made for drinks - the bottle neck is narrower so might be better for blended soups or hot chocolate :)

u/Astray · 29 pointsr/manga

If anyone wants that bottle, the author drew it in such detail that you can easily identify the model.

u/Xan2122 · 28 pointsr/Coffee

Zojirushi has some of the best travel mugs period. Mine will keep my coffee hot all day and if I forget to drink it (rare) it will still be hot the next morning. Disassembles easily for thorough cleaning and comes in a variety of sizes and colors! It also fits perfectly in any cup holder because it's slim design and can easily be operated with one hand while driving.

Be careful about Stanley mugs, some reviews say the quality has dropped.

u/indiraa · 26 pointsr/xxfitness

Maybe look into getting a bento box set? I have this one and it will keep your food hot or cold until lunchtime with no problem. It's the size of a big soup thermos and it's super handy.

u/isleepinahammock · 24 pointsr/OregonStateUniv

If you were willing to do that, your best bet would be to find a pod coffee maker somewhere around campus. Then just use your own coffee pod. WinCo sells them for 40 cents each and you can get them even cheaper on Amazon. You can also buy refillable versions of them.

Or even better, rather than sneaking into prohibited areas, just get one of these or similar. You can put hot coffee into this thing in the morning, and sealed, it will remain too hot to drink until tomorrow morning.

If a $30 thermos is beyond your budget, head on over to any of the ten thousand thrift stores within a mile of campus, or go to the OSUsed store when it's open. They always have vacuum thermoses for sale. You can probably get one for under $5.

Realize, when you're purchasing coffee on campus, or anywhere else, you're not paying for the coffee. You're paying for the convenience. You're paying for the ability to not have to brew it yourself, clean the machine out, have tools and equipment available, etc. And you're paying for someone to stand around all day, just waiting for people to come in looking for coffee. Even if no one comes in for an entire hour, everyone at that shop is getting paid. Plus the cost of the space itself. The vendors on campus all have to pay rent to OSU, just like any other landlord.

In short, $2 really isn't that outrageous for instant, convenient coffee that you don't have to lift a finger for. People often also pay $2 for a bottle of water, when they could get the same water for less than a penny per gallon out of their home tap. You're not paying for the water; you're paying for the convenience.

u/Inigo93 · 22 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Grandad almost certainly would have had a Stanley Vacuum Bottle. As /u/capolan notes, it would have been glass lined while today's are stainless steel, but they're otherwise pretty much unchanged from 75 years ago.

u/8chofmann · 20 pointsr/Coffee

Hey! I just graduated and I can tell you with certainty that I had a good setup:

u/squidboots · 19 pointsr/BuyItForLife

My Zojirushi thermos is amazingly BIFL. Not only can you pull the lid completely apart for easy cleaning (my biggest gripe with the Contigo is that the lid is a PITA to clean) but it keep liquids hot for a VERY long time. I have put hot tea in it at 9am, drank out of it most of the work day, then accidentally left it closed on my desk overnight - the next day at 9am the tea inside is still warm. Crazy.

You can still open it up with one hand, too. Love love love it.

u/Capolan · 18 pointsr/BuyItForLife

So grandad thermos would have been glass lined - you don't want that. you want a double wall stainless steel - which is way more advanced than the old thermos of yore.

Zojirushi is what you want to buy.

Though, new Thermos brand products are quite good - I really like this one - this one for example, I've had ice water in for 8+ hours...still ice floating in it...:

and this one, though it's bulkier - this one is 24 hours...and they really mean that...:

u/Aperture_Kubi · 17 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

Only issue I have with Mr. Bento (and the smaller Mrs. Bento) is that I have issues figuring out what to use it with.

I picked up a Thermos Food Jar for one dish lunches. Works well for noodle or fried rice based dishes.

u/Saccaed · 15 pointsr/AskMen

You might try using a thermos. It can make staying on a decent diet pretty convenient. I find I can cook in the morning, fill a 24 ounce thermos with the remaining bits, and have much less trouble maintaining a healthy diet. I like doing soups, but pretty much anything stays hot in it for 14+hours.

u/kmichaelkillz · 15 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Looks like /u/Veritech-1 beat me to the punch on this, but I'd like to add another endorsement for Zojirushi coffee thermoses. I'm a coffee addict and a PhD student, so I spend a lot of time going from place to place with hot coffee in hand. I'm also very hard on my thermoses. Every one I've used eventually gets leaky, cracks, and so on. Not my Zojirushi. I fill it with hot coffee and shove it in my backpack every morning and it has never spilled. I once filled it and forgot it at home. When I came back from work, the coffee was still piping hot. Everyone who needs coffee on the go should own one of these.

u/Russkiy_To_Youskiy · 15 pointsr/BuyItForLife

This is my Black and Decker Cup At A Time coffee maker that I bought in January 1994. Model is DCM6.

This coffee maker saw daily use from 1994-2005, 3-4x weekly since 2005. It still brews a great cup of coffee every time and has held up very well for almost 25 years old.

The B&D one cup model is now called Brew 'n Go, and it is model number DCM18. By all appearances and by progression of the model number series, it is the exact same maker... albeit it is only made in black now, and it comes with either a beige/black or stainless/black travel mug. Amazon link

u/bravochar · 14 pointsr/Coffee

I've got one of those Zojirushi thermoses, so I just brew extra in the morning and bring it with me. They really are as good as they are touted to be, so I've got piping hot coffee for up to 7 or 8 hours into my day.

u/drg145e15 · 13 pointsr/Coffee

I find that two smaller high quality thermoses work better than one large one. When a large one is half full, it seems to lose heat more quickly. I’ve found the Zojirushi insulated bottles to be amazing, and I prefer the 12 oz size, though the larger ones are great as well.

Here’s the one I use:

u/coviecarbine · 13 pointsr/personalfinance

Those k cups make way too much unnecessary waste. So much less garbage produced with a regular drip coffee machine. If you want a one cup solution these are awesome.

u/Z0idberg_MD · 13 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

[Zorojirushi] ( Any thermos that has a glass interior and a thin metal exterior. I promise you, hours later, it will still literally burn your mouth. They will also keep drinks freezing cold and they never "sweat".

They're amazing.

u/GIS-Rockstar · 12 pointsr/scuba
  • A thermos of hot chocolate/soup is magnificent.

  • Bring a Snickers bar for after the dive too. The sugar and protein can get your blood/metabolism pumping and it's a good snack to hold you over until you get to your next hot meal

  • Fill a ≈gallon sized, insulated jug with hot water and do your best to keep it warm (wrapping it in a towel or some neoprene material from a fabric store works great). Dunk your hands in there if they're too cold to move around (it's hard to warm up your hands and fingers). Otherwise, don't forget chemical hand warmers packs (but they stop working once they get wet)

  • An extra towel and a complete extra change of clothes are a good backup

  • Have a setup plan and stick to it to change in and out of gear. Minimize any time where you aren't wearing a hat/gloves/jacket/etc. Body heat is quickly lost and it takes forever to return when you're wet and your body temp is down

  • Ditch your gear, and immediately get out of your wet scuba gear. Break down your scuba rig well after you're dry, warm, and stabilized
u/better_half · 12 pointsr/Coffee

I've used a thermos before. The only problem is that too hot coffee stays too hot for too long. Once it reaches the right temperature, it'll hold for long enough, but a burnt tongue squanders all that.

Honestly, it'll taste fine. I wouldn't worry too much about degradation. Most coffee shops have pre-made coffee sitting in urns for hours (the name of the one we use where I work is escaping me). Coffee'll stay hot for quite some time, and any impact on taste is minimal.

I have the Zojirushi SM-KHE48BA. It might be a good idea to pair it with a little mug. The spout area on mine is pretty dirty, and none of my attempts at cleaning it have worked out.

To answer your questions again: yes, I've tried it; no, the taste doesn't degrade; I use the Zojirushi SM-KHE48BA.

u/turkeylurkeywastasty · 10 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

I love this set, it keeps things hot forever- even if you're outside and it's freezing. Comes with a little bag that boosts the insulation factor

u/reddit_is_filth · 10 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Zojirushi, hands down. I've had this one for two and a half years now, and it's just as good as the day I got it.

What's more, they sell replacement parts - the whole lid, the mouthpiece, all the seals & o-rings... You can get an entire rebuild kit for around ten or twelve bucks.

edit - fixed link. apparently, reddit doesn't know what a link is without http:// out front.

u/tstone433 · 10 pointsr/Coffee

Zojirushi thermos. I absolutely love this thing. I typically use it as a carafe and serve my coffee into a small mug. I highly recommend it.

u/NMO · 10 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Seeing this page, I feel like japanese brand Zojirushi is a really good option. Namely the previous generation Stainless Steel Mug.

u/jersully · 9 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

Jeez, just get this for $10, shipped. I like mine so much I bought a second. One at home, one at work.

I dig OP's handle though.

u/g33n · 9 pointsr/Perfectfit

It looks like this one. Not sure where you'd get it for $3; the cheapest on google is $10.

u/Vroonkle · 9 pointsr/explainlikeimfive

If you want filtered water anywhere:

If you just want a durable plastic bottle: any Nalgene-style bottle. Or a single walled steel bottle. These will sweat, and warm up/cool down like normal cups.

A Thermos, Hydroflask, or any vacuum insulated bottle if you want a drink at a constant temperature: as a bonus, these don't sweat! The outside can get very hot though. I wrapped mine in para cord.

Flexible lightweight bottles for hiking, day-packing, backpacking, etc.:

There are these water bottle refilling stations cropping up all over now too. I can't wait until this really gets a foothold. I've seen them at some universities, in gyms, and at the PDX airport.

u/messijoez · 9 pointsr/Cooking

My wife got one of these thermoses. Comes with a folding spoon inside the cap and keeps whatever's inside hot for hours.

When we use it, we'll do things like curries (indian/thai/japanese) or soups, and then she'll bring a small tupperware of rice or some bread. Also good for soups, fried rice, porridge, really anything that needs to be kept hot, but it works best for saucy items. One thing I've wanted to try but haven't is something like a tupperware of cold pasta and cheese, and fill up this thing with hot spaghetti sauce and meatballs.

Another option for a "nicer" but less flexible system would be a bento box thermos like this one. What I don't like about these is that they're meant to be used in a specific way; i.e. a hot soup/sauce, a warm side (typically starch like pasta or rice), and a cold salad. It basically slowly leaks heat everywhere, and I prefer to have one really hot dish, and will just deal with having a cold starch if needed.

u/H_L_Mencken · 9 pointsr/CrappyDesign

I suggest this travel mug.

It was much more expensive back when I bought it. Nearly 50 dollars. It really will keep your liquids hot for 5+ hours. If I fill this thing with hot tea/coffee immediately after brewed, the liquid will stay too hot too drink for 2 or 3 hours. It's ridiculous.

The only downside is the lid is a bitch to clean. It breaks down into way too many small and confusing parts.

u/tseliottt · 9 pointsr/Coffee

Zojirushi for sure.

Those ratings. 1184 5 star, 27 1 star. Hard to go wrong.

u/Broken_Toys · 9 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Zojirushi is a fantastic brand as far as insulated bottles and jars go. They are pricier than Thermos brand but worth the added cost. That being said Thermos makes a damn good product.

I have this:

That thing is incredible.

u/shamam · 9 pointsr/Coffee

Zojirushi SM-KHE48BA Stainless Steel Mug

It's almost too well insulated and the cap is very easy to clean. If I didn't already have one I'd get the 20oz model.

u/MangyCanine · 9 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Seconded. I think these are also as leak proof as these things get.

The only problem is that 20oz is as large as it gets.

u/finkydink · 9 pointsr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

This is the thermos for you: Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug. It holds hot and cold liquids for HOURS.

u/cybermesh · 9 pointsr/talesfromtechsupport

My wife uses a sealed tumbler for her coffee, that way it can't accidentally spill on the keyboard.

u/Flagyl400 · 8 pointsr/ireland

Coffee is one you don't think about but can add up really fast. I used to buy two coffees every work day at €2.50 a pop - fiver a day, five days a week, 48 weeks a year - €1200 a year.

I bought one of these for €25 and buy coffee beans by the kilo online instead now. About €12/kg which lasts me around a month - saving over a grand a year.

u/wipny · 8 pointsr/BuyItForLife

The Sweethome has a list of dorm room essentials.

If you don't have one already, a microwave is a lifesaver.

Good bedsheets are nice to have and they have their recommendation in the link above. I don't know if there are Target stores in the UK, but I really like these Threshold cotton percale sheets. They feel great to sleep on and are affordable.

I really love my Zojirushi travel mug. It has a secure flip top cap, can be easily cleaned, and it's almost too good at insulating hot & cold drinks. You can use it as a regular cup at home and travel with it to class.

Most importantly, keep condoms around. I like Lifestyles Skyns. The Skyn Elite ones are thinner and have torn on me, so be careful.

u/tunaman808 · 8 pointsr/AskAnAmerican

> Nobody will think you're weird for having a beer on the beach, but they may arrest you.

Which is why you always: a) drink beer from cans, not bottles; and b) always put the can in a koozie.

I've had Myrtle Beach cops look dead at me while drinking a PBR in a koozie on the beach... and I think they appreciate me giving them the option of looking the other way.

Also, you shouldn't drink beer outta bottles on the beach anyway, ('cos glass), and a nice koozie will keep your beer colder in the sun much longer than one without.

u/butterandcork · 8 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've had this Thermos for a few years now. I like it because it keeps your drink hot/cold and also has a leak proof lid.

u/HaricotNoir · 8 pointsr/ReviewThis

u/Atbat82 · 7 pointsr/Coffee

Zojirushi hands down. Keeps coffee hot for way too long and doesn’t leak at all. I literally fill mine with hot coffee and drop it in my laptop bag (remember to lock the lid) and never a drip.

There’s a bunch of different models, but something like this:

You're not going to make any great progress on a PC build for that price. Besides, PC tech is changing so quickly, you shouldn't buy any one piece of it until you can buy all of it.

If you're looking for X1 games, I'm a huge fan of Destiny, but it's not for everyone. If you're looking for more of a sure hit, check out Shadows of Mordor or Dragon Age: Inquisition.

u/Zombie_Spider · 7 pointsr/nursing

u/parametrek · 6 pointsr/preppers

> Once you fire up the stove, and boil your water, it is MORE economical to store your boiling hot water in a vacuum flask, than it is to fire up your stove and reheat the water you didn't use the last time.

I can give you some numbers on this. Before a getting a flask I had spent around $15/year on energy for boiling water for tea/coffee. With a thermos it was $5/year. This doesn't sound like much. Energy is cheap when civilization is functioning normally. But if you need to forage for wood every day or have limited propane stockpiles or only a couple of solar panels then it really makes a difference.

> because it works markedly better than stainless lined

The stainless thermoses work pretty good. They'll easily keep a beverage hot for 12 hours. You are supposed to preheat the steel flasks but I will skip that because boiling water is too hot for tea. The water is cooled just enough to be right where I want it.

The stainless thermoses are much nicer to carry around in a backpack. I have several of them and recommend this model. Anything smaller than 3 cups is not worth bothering with.

u/eyeoutthere · 6 pointsr/Coffee

SM-KA48 model is out of production. Look for SM-KHE48 or SM-KB48 (should be around $27 and $31 respectively). Those are the more recent models.

SM-KB48 is the newest with the only difference being it has a different (don't know if "better") type of non-stick coating on the inside of the mug.

u/CasterlyBoulder · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Not sure exactly if this is what you're looking for, but this 16 oz. zojirushi mug is amazing and elegant. Literally keeps my coffee hot for 24 hours. I've never come across a better thermos.

u/TheLonelyLumen · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I would recommend Zojirushi but one time I put creamer and sugar in it then shook it up with the lid closed and coffee went everywhere..

Just kidding..I still recommend the Zojirushi but I also recommend you put the gray seal and lip piece back in before shaking it!

Honestly this the best travel mug I have ever used and sometimes it keeps my coffee too hot for too long so I have been setting my timer earlier on my coffee maker so that it os perfect temp when I put it in the travel mug and it stays like that all day!

u/cromonolith · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I was just about to get one of these from Amazon. How do you know there are counterfeits diluting the stock?

All the first results are "by Zojirushi", sold by Amazon, with hundreds of positive reviews. This one, for example. Are you saying you think these might be fake, or that people are ignoring all the top results and digging out the fake ones to buy?

u/maidenelk · 6 pointsr/Coffee

I've gone through maybe a dozen travel mugs (including the Contigo) and settled on this.

It's not cheap, per se. But it's an incredible value because it's vastly superior:

  • When closed, it's completely leak-proof.
  • It will keep your coffee hot for 5+ hours. And drinkably warm for 10+ hours.
  • Unlike the Contigo, there's a basin that the coffee flows into before you take a drink. This allows you to control the flow rate. (It's difficult to sip from the Contigo.) This is important b/c your coffee will remain hot for 5+ hours.
  • It's easy to clean. (The Contigo's cap is complicated b/c of the auto-seal mechanism, which makes it hard to clean.)
  • I've owned mine for 8 years and have never had mold or needed to replace the gasket.
u/oldnametoorevealing · 6 pointsr/rawdenim

u/taaltrek · 6 pointsr/motorcycles

Zojirushi is by far the best most secure thermos you can buy. It's got a lock so it will never open in your back if you lock it, and it will keep your coffee hot forever. Plus, it's much lighter than the continuo autoseal.

Something like this:

Zojirushi SM-KHE48AG Stainless Steel Mug, 16-Ounce, Smoky Blue

I have one of these and it will probably be the last mug I ever buy. Its very well designed! Doesn't leak, easy to clean, keeps coffee hot for a long time.

There is a "slicksteel" version that has a polished stainless interior and a nonstick version (sm-kb).

u/callmeRichard · 6 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Stainless steel and vacuum insulation should make for a good product. But it is kind of hard to see how the mouth piece works... I would probably go with a tried and true Zojirushi unless you really need the extra capacity.

u/wholesomefolsom96 · 6 pointsr/ADHD

I support this idea. If you are not drinking from a tumbler straw, this is my favorite water bottle of all time:

Zojirushi SM-KHE48AG Stainless Steel Mug, 16-Ounce, Smoky Blue

I got so used to drinking ice water (no longer room temp like a plebeian) and the ergonomics are unparalleled in this bottle. The ease of the pour spout makes it effortless to sip and work on something else, or tilt it in bed without spilling, not to mentions makes sharing easier since the pour is so good you don’t have to touch it to your mouth! Also if you forget to drink enough water one day, don’t worry, water will still be cold. It holds ice cubes for over 24 hours (meaning ice in water holds solid form for HOURS).

Too hyped on this but it seriously got me into a good habit of drinking water.


The other trick I did at my last job was to get up and refill my bottle once every hour. It would make me race the clock to do a certain task or amount of work before getting up to pee and refill it again.

Because if I was drinking a bottle an hour and getting up every time, I had to pee every hour... which meant phone games and reddit every hour from 5-10 minutes an hour depending...

It made me a happier, faster worker, more hydrated, and I got paid an hour to pee EVERY day... (7 minutes to pee/refill every hour give or take extra pooping time X 7 work hours a day = 49 minutes).

It also helps you poop more if you drink more water and relax on the toilet. And I’d always say, save money on the toilet paper while also getting paid to shit!

Good old Stanley for me. One hand drinking, the cup is sealed, stays warm forever and the lid comes apart to clean. All different sizes and go up to a gallon.

u/bcjc78 · 5 pointsr/Golf_R

I had the same problem when I picked up my car this August. Another Redditor suggested I order this. I've had it for a few months and it works great on cans. Depending on what you drink you may want a larger holder as this is only really good for cans.

u/khenning · 5 pointsr/Coffee
u/samyojana · 5 pointsr/Tools

For non insulated, just use a 4L milk jug.
For insulated, a large thermos from Stanley or Thermos or Yeti is your best bet. I'm always most impressed by the green matte stanleys. These guys or similar.

u/classywriterr · 5 pointsr/college

I'm a huuuuge fan of bento canisters like this and this. If you refrigerate containers overnight (or prime them with hot water before adding hot foods), they'll stay good for hours. Plus it's kind of comforting to have all your food sectioned out. :)

u/kallell · 5 pointsr/keto

I think part of the issue here is you are having five or six coffees per day...That's pretty intense. Any reason in particular you have to swig so much?

Also, why not try black coffee? I hated it at first, but now I prefer it to anything else - I drink it daily. Make sure it's hot, just under the point where you can't handle it and just sip it for a few hours in a thermos It will keep it hot literally all day if you want, but i find i can sip it in the morning from about 7:30-11. If you want good tasting coffee (black) suggestions, i recommend mcdonalds or pick up a bag of dunken doughnuts morning blend.

u/davestar · 5 pointsr/Coffee

yup. i have the Thermos Sipp and the Thermos King, both of which i prefer to the Contigo mugs.

u/purplenat · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

Yup, getting into my car in the morning can be intense. Often I have to use the passenger door to dump all my stuff before sitting in the driver's seat.
I have yet to find a single bag that really works for everything, but some things that help me are:

  • Laptop bag (just a plain old tote bag) is slim and can sit on my shoulder
  • Purse that can also sit on my shoulder (or other shoulder)
  • Insulated lunch bag with handle long enough to fit on my forearm
  • Three options for keys: (1) Easy access pocket for quick in & out (2) Keys on a single ring that I can hold with my pinky finger and (3) Keys clipped on a string/tether that dangles out of my bag between the front door & my car and later my car and office door. It's long enough that I can lock/unlock doors without unclipping.
  • Insulated coffee cup that I can put in the lunch bag that (1) won't warm up my cold items, (2) won't get cold from cold items and (3) won't leak if it falls over.

    It's a system... Sometimes I also have to bring my shopping bags for grocery shopping afterwards, and then I just look full on bag-lady. I also always try to leave space in my purse for the scarf/cardigan/layers that inevitably come on in A/C but need to be taken off outside (S. Florida).
    I'm also on the hunt for a great purse organizer. I've been looking at the chameleon organizer, but I'm still looking around.

I just got a new one, I don't find the lid to be fussy or hard to clean at all. I use it and the one I had before it every single day.

Not sure if they make different ones for the US market but the Japanese model is the only ones I know. This is the one I'm referring to.

u/thyfearfulsymmetry · 5 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

A mug by this company is ideal for soups, coffee, even stews if you bring a bowl to pour it in. I have had coffee scalding my mouth 14 hours later. I often have to open it, let the contents cool and then consume because it retains heat so well.

Sorry for the Amazon link, I'm on mobile. This is the one I have. They fit perfectly in backpacks and can be strapped to a bike. Mine survives concrete floors and being dropped all the time. It's not pretty but still works as good as I got it in Jan of 2014.

u/techniforus · 5 pointsr/LifeProTips

This is the best container. It won't even spill too much if the lid's left open, it locks and maintains a seal really well in a bag, and if anything it's too good at keeping your drink hot. Also it's solid construction, I've really been hard on mine over the past 3 years or so and it's still marvelous.

For the sweet tooth (like my dad, these are all things he likes):

  • A candy jar or bowl filled with her favorite candy.

  • An artisan ice cream scoop.

  • An ice cream maker. You could get an ice cream recipe book as well.

  • One of my dad's favorite gifts was a sugar dispenser... I think that shows his level of sugar commitment.

  • Some artisan marshmallows.

  • A milk frother that doubles as a hot chocolate maker.

    For the executive (like my mom, these are all things she likes):

  • A high quality thermos for coffee on the way to work.

  • A smart home setup, maybe an echo and some smart outlets or the google home. Really good for turning lights on/off, asking for the weather and news, listening to music, etc.

  • A FitBit to help her keep healthy even working long hours.

  • A popcorn maker that allows you to make non-microwaved popcorn in the microwave.

  • A white noise machine. If she has any trouble sleeping this thing is AMAZING.

  • A Roku or Chromecast that makes it easier to watch Netflix on the TV.

  • Wine tasting or cooking class that you can do together. Really my mom loves doing stuff with her family.

u/omg_pwnies · 5 pointsr/EatCheapAndHealthy

A terrific option is a wide mouth thermos. You'd put hot food in it and it stays hot for up to 9 hours (it also says 12 hours to keep cold stuff cold).

That gives you tons of options for all kinds of things. I googled good recipe ideas for thermos and found a bunch of ideas.

And now my stomach is growling. :p Hope this helps!!

Girl, being too lazy to use a Keurig really is a whole 'nother level of lazy, hahahah. (Though I suppose using the reusable pods adds a layer of effort that I might not be up for in the morning, either.) I have this French press mug and can attest to its awesomeness! I only use it in a pinch, though, because I need more coffee than that on any given morning, and I've been much better about prepping my French press at night (making sure it's clean, grinding beans for the next day) lately.

u/Dr_Procrastinator · 4 pointsr/Coffee

This one

It comes in a bunch of different sizes and colors.

Why: it has the best heat retention of the vacuum insulated mugs/flasks I’ve used. If you put hot coffee or water in it, it will still be hot after 7-8 hours. Now I don’t take that long to drink coffee. If I’m going fishing, it’s nice to put in in my travel mug, get out onto the water and it’s still too hot to drink. By then 3-4 hours might have elapsed.

The top is easy to drink out of and doesn’t burn your mouth like some other ones that don’t have a lid to drink through.

All the people I know who've owned glass tumblers have had them break. I'm usually very careful with my stuff, so I bought one too, but it broke within 6 months. It looked nice while it lasted, but what a waste of $25.

This one from Zojirushi is the best one on the market and a great example of Japanese engineering. They ripped off the design from Nissan, which at the time had the most well-designed tumbler on the market, but they made several modifications that made it even better. The older model maxes out at 16 oz, but the newer model comes in 20 oz. The newer model also has a high quality non-stick lining that should prevent any odors. Also, it's small enough to fit in a BMW cup holder.

They're a little expensive (around $32), but they last forever. My parents have used the older model daily for 3 years, and the mugs still look brand new.

I'll agree with you on the light part, but a glass bottle most definitely keeps beer colder. Aluminum has a slightly higher specific heat, but the significantly higher mass of the glass bottle outweighs that.

I had a pretty crazy day and was only able to take a few sips of coffee, it's now 7:15pm and I took it out of my bag, took a swig and it is still pretty damn hot. It also tastes exactly the same as when I got it this morning. I'm telling you this thing is awesome, I'm picking up another one for my permanent roommate.

Zojirushi's Mr. Bento is pretty good, and has a container with a screw top lid that will even carry soup, no problems. The capacity is quite large and might be surplus to requirements, though. Zojirushi also makes a Ms. Bento has a similar arrangement that's smaller capacity.

I second the wrap idea. Also, if you are able to make an investment, I would recommend an insulated lunch jar. I'm running around campus all day so I just pack my snacks and lunch in this...

I usually have some grapes or carrot sticks in the top compartment, leftovers in the middle, and the bottom is meant for soup but I usually just pack an additional side dish in there, like cucumber salad or cottage cheese. The little tote bag it comes with is great too, my water bottle fits perfectly in there, or you could stash a banana or a snack bar. Good luck!

u/RugerRedhawk · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

You don't need to spend that much on a backpack, an LL bean or jansport will cost less, last you well over 4 years, and are backed by solid warranties. Not saying that pack isn't nice, but with the budget you're working with I'd personally drop that one down a notch.

For coat I'd consider a nice arctic carhartt and maybe a cheap frog togg rain jacket you could toss on over it on a day you plan on getting wet for an extended period.

As far as long johns go, any will last you. Merino wool is a great material for these, but I have several fleece based solutions that are very warm and cost quite a bit less.

I think the thermos you linked to has it's price inflated because it's an older model, something like this will be more than adequate: just avoid any that have glass in them.

u/ichabod13 · 3 pointsr/soylent

Might look into a thermos. Something like this

I've used the smaller 24 ounce model when I used to bring one bigger meal and drink it between breakfast/lunch. I would put a few cubes of ice and it would remain cool just fine, even on 100+ days. It helped to make sure it was left out of direct sunlight too.

I use this cup and my coffee almost always stays hot until I finish it. Same size (16 Oz.) but you drink right out of the thermos.

u/Xraygoggles · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I think this is a milestone hurdle in any coffee quest. I went through a bunch of coffee mugs trying to find the one for me. Here's a few things that I ran into, and my final decision in a neatorama bullet point list:

  • They will always be bigger than they look online
  • The Contigo is amazing but a pain in the butt to clean
  • You get the best length of heat and spill proof from the screw on top kind, but they aren't easy to drink "on the go"
  • Handles are LOL at first, but sometimes very useful and dignified

    Anyway, I submit for your approval, my "perfect" travel mug. At least until something better comes along. Bask it in.

    I use this everyday, it's amazing to me. Keeps coffee hot for hours and makes an awesome "thuk" when you release the heat compression. 100% spillproof, with one small caveat. Sometimes a drop or two will stay past the seal point when you take a sip. Not a problem, just want to give you all sides. Super duper easy to clean as it divides totally down into component pieces so you can be a weekend warrior and pretend you're breaking down your rifle. There's an awesome indention all the way around that you can use to customize the mug. I wrapped mine with the guts from a piece of 550 cord and threw a S-biner on it and it looks awesome. I would very seriously consider weaving a friendship bracelet to wrap it up with, I like it so much.

    No matter which mug you buy, always pre-warm with hot water to keep coffee hot almost indefinately.

    Keep me posted!

    tl;dr Buy This one
u/unitconversion · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've got one of these and it works really well. The lid seals with a silicon o-ring so I don't see it ever wearing out and leaking.

u/lifeislame · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Somehow this has been coming up on several subreddits and I've been blathering on and on ever since.

Factors to look for:

  1. Any double-walled, vacuum-sealed travel mug will keep things hot for hours. Some will be better than others, but plenty are good enough that you don't have to worry too much about which you get. The only thing that would impact this is that certain mugs require you to remove the whole lid, allowing lots of cold air into the mug. The smaller the drink opening, the better it'll be.

  2. The thing you really need to worry about is the drinking mechanism. Some have flip-tops, some have sippy lids, some have push-button seals, etc etc. You just need to think about your needs and figure out which one you want.

    Some of the best I've found:

  3. Contigo. If you're going to be drinking on a bus, you HAVE to go with the Contigo. It's the only possible way I've ever seen to avoid spilling altogether. It's also super popular, and good. You just have to make sure the sippy lid doesn't get dirty, since there's no way to cover it up or whatever. They have a few variations, but this style is the most common one.

  4. Thermos Sipp. Push-button seal, and the shape mimics the way a drinking glass works, and exposes the liquid to the air a little, so you can sip more easily. More pleasant to drink, though hard in a moving vehicle.

  5. JoeMoXL mug. Push button seal plus a leak-proof lid, 360 degree drinking, plus a tea infuser basket if you're a tea fanatic.

    I would recommend staying away from flip-top mugs, because as far as I've seen, they always leak. Sad but true. If you can find one that doesn't, then great.

    I think the biggest thing to look for is the drinking mechanism. With the tiny sippy lid (like on the Contigo), you have to make sure the drink is the correct temperature, or it'll be too hot to drink. With those that expose the liquid to the surrounding air a little, you can sip more easily, but then it's harder to use on a bus or whatever. I think that's the biggest issue to worry about when searching.

u/S_A_N_D_ · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I honestly don't remember the brand. I would just look for it at either your grocery store or possibly a camping supply store. It was certainly not gourmet coffee. Standard mass produced name brand coffee.

It's a little more work however you could also get a travel thermos depending on how much you drink. I have one of these and it will reliably keep coffee hot for 8-12 hours (at 4 hours it's still too hot to drink) and have even forgotten it and found it was still drinkably warm 24h later.

u/Atlas26 · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Get this one!

Save you the trouble of going through three or four to find a good one...probably spent 80-100 dollars on them before I found this one, don't even bother with the Contigo. Impossible to clean.

As for aeropress and the one liter thermos, I use it everyday at uni! Electric kettle, two AP scoops of coffee and it comes out great, just fill the aeropress up to the top, press and pour into the thermos, then dilute to the top!

u/eggzachtly · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Random recommendations from a sophomore in college:

Adidas Shower Shoes - These things have been great. They dry nearly instantly and are adjustable.

Zojirushi Travel Mug - If you drink coffee and would like to have access to it throughout the day, this is by far the best travel mug (and has many recommendations here on BIFL).

Water pitcher - Assuming you will have a fridge (you might not), having access to cold water can be surprisingly convenient. Even if you don't have a fridge, if you don't have a sink, this will be a lot more convenient.

Towels - This is more of a personal preference. For me, department store-bought towels are too soft and absorbent. I found that mine never got totally dry, and replaced them with Turkish peshtemal towels (like these ones from Amazon)

Computer monitor - You will use this all four years, I guarantee it. If you get a big enough one, you can also use it as a TV when friends are over.

Laser printer - do NOT buy an inkjet. You will go crazy when it conveniently runs out of ink before your lab report is due. Brother makes good laser printers. Wireless is nice, but probably not a necessity.

Some kind of noise cancelling headphones - doesn't have to be active noise canceling. College dorms can be noisy. Having a good pair of over-the-ear headphones can be nice, even if you just listen to white noise to drown out your roommate.

Things I didn't need:

A TV - nice, but not necessary

iPad - I don't know why anyone thinks this is necessary or why I have one other than watching Netflix in bed when I'm too lazy to unplug my computer.

I've been using my Zojirushi for the last few years. It keeps my coffee hot pretty much all day and can take a beating. It's fallen onto the road while biking a few times and only has a few scuffs and a small dent to show for it. Not only that, but Zojirushi sells replacement parts for their thermoses, including seals and mouthpieces in case you ever need them.

Also, you can get it in a 12oz size if you're sure that's all you'll need.

I tried a few different mugs before finally getting the Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug when it was on sale. My biggest problem with Contigo and other leak proof mugs was the cleaning as well and the Zojirushi comes apart pretty easily for cleanup.

The only problem, if you consider this a problem, is that it keeps things very hot inside. Drinking hot coffee from the wide spout while moving can potentially cause you to spill on yourself which is why I've seen people recommend pouring the contents into a separate cup. I haven't had any issues with it but still just wanted to give a heads up.

Or, if weight isn't an issue, I can't recommend the Bodum Travel French Press Mug enough. I love mine so, so much!

A couple of years ago, I got one of these : Bodum Travel Press

It works well enough. Its handy to be able to toss in a bag preloaded with grounds then fill with microwaved hot water at work or wherever.

I rock that bad boy. I don't notice any metal taste at all. It has a plastic mouthpiece that the fluid flows through before getting to your mouth. (I also don't notice a plastic taste..haha). A bit pricey. Works incredibly well though.

u/grumblegeek · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

The items I can think of right now that I've bought pretty much because of this subreddit:

  1. Zojirushi Travel mug - I use this as my office coffee mug. I fill it up in the morning and if I get sidetracked then it's still hot hours later.

  2. Saddleback Pocket ID Wallet - simple and gets the job done

  3. Weber One-Touch Gold Charcoal Grill - I love this grill.

  4. Red Wing Iron Ranger 8111 (amber color) - the first 3 weeks I thought I made a huge mistake but now they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned.

  5. Fisher Space Pen - I've had to stop other people from pocketing it. My wife tried to take it because she likes the way it writes.

  6. [Kershaw Skyline Knife] ( - I'm not into putting a lot of money into a pocketknife so this fits the bill nicely.

  7. ToiletTree Heavy Duty Nose and Facial Hair Trimmer - my previous nose trimmers felt like it was ripping the hair out by the root. This one I don't feel anything and it's very well made

    All of these I would buy again.

For a little more ($30), I cannot recommend the zojirushi 16oz enough. I have the black one and it looks great and it is unreal how long it keeps my coffee hot. There is also a 12oz one as well I believe, and it may be a bit cheaper.

Edit: This is the best I could find: Zojirushi 480ml, but I'm from the states, so I'm not sure if there is better place to get them, I just searched on the UK amazon. This was £1 more than the 360ml.

I have two of these and loved them until the day I had one in my bag sideways and somehow was leaning on the release button and ended up with a butt and bag drenched in coffee. Had no problems with the seal or leakage and held heat amazingly. I still use them but my "throw it into my bag sideways" mug is now the Zojirushi travel mug since it has a lock.

u/false_parallax · 3 pointsr/CatsandCosmetics

So, because biian's bag comment inspired me, I was thinking of some non-makeup stuff that'd I'd love to buy if, you know, I had no debts and an unlimited budget. These are things I love even though I don't have them :P

  • The The OMG tote I mentioned in my comment-on-her-comment.
  • This Rose-Gold watch from Fossil. I love Fossil; they gave good bags, but because I'm not into bags, I'd rather have one bag that can be professional if need be but fine for casual use too, hence why I'm not pining after one. That said, I FUCKING LOVE my Emory Clutch
  • I drink coffee and tea, and currently have a double-walled Tervis tumbler to bring it with me in the mornings. That's fine for one cup. My office's office is swill, so I'd prefer to bring more and keep it hot. This thermos from Zojirushi is a thing of beauty is is also apparently a boss at keeping things hot for a long time. Here are other colors!
u/j1mdan1els · 3 pointsr/Coffee

What is the environment? Are we talking somewhere with an explosion risk, so no heat sources at all? Do you just mean he has no access to an energy source? How about a really good thermos? Zojirushi are pretty damn fantastic and very secure but, depending where you are, you're going to have to move fast to get it for Christmas.

u/HiFiveBro · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Edit: Realized mine was larger than what OP requested.

I love mine. I bought mine a few weeks ago after reading a similar thread, (actually I bought two) and it's by far the best purchase I've made for beverages. The temperature doesn't really start to drop until after the 12 hour mark. I have the one with the flip top even though I don't really commute that far, but it's really convenient to use. Even when I'm at home, I'll brew enough to fill it up + a mug, because it does a better job of keeping it hot and without burning it than the warming plate on my coffee maker.

I highly recommend this one

The other one I got is more thermos style, and while it does keep the coffee hot for 12+ hours, it does have a minor amount of spilling after pouring from it, so keeping napkins nearby is kinda necessary.

u/blooper98 · 3 pointsr/Coffee

u/rockstar686 · 3 pointsr/Coffee

I have always loved my Zojirushi Stainless Steel Mug. Its easy to clean, has a locking lid so I can throw it in my bag for my morning commute, and the cap is spring loaded so I can open it with one hand.

My only complaint is that it keeps my coffee hot for too long. If you want to drink it right after you pour it in you better take off the cap and let it sit out for a few mins first.

Zojirushi SM-KHE48BA Stainless Steel Mug

If I'm doing a pour over or aeropress (anything where I'm using water right off the boil), my coffee will be too hot to drink for easily 12 hours. My regular drip coffee maker doesn't brew as hot; the Zojirushi keeps it hot but drinkable for 8-10 hours.

This is what my search turned up a while back.

Water is in a CamelBak Eddy water bottle - for some reason it's easier to drink plenty of water through a straw, and it's spill proof for a klutz like me.

I also usually have a Zojirushi SM-SA48 mug with me. It keeps my /r/coffee from Forte Legato hot all day - I like to make it at home around 8 and drink it during the afternoon slump. Disclaimer: I started out buying Forte Legato, but now I sometimes work for them in exchange for free coffee beans. The owner calls me the director of sales, but I dunno how much weight that carries since I'm not really an employee. :P

u/1sight1 · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Don't bash it till you try it. Zojirushi will keep coffee at a drinkable temperature for a full 8 hour day without much trouble. I have the 16oz version and love it. It locks shut so you don't spill, it has 16 oz which is a good size (and larger sizes), keeps things hot. It is pretty simple but I would think some one who is artistic could get some paint pens and make it look awesome.

You want one of these.
Zojirushi 480ml flask. I personally brew my coffee, pour it into one of these, and then pour it into an enamelware mug a little at a time when I want some. (I use enamelware because it won't pull as much heat from your coffee as a traditional ceramic mug.)

u/orange_teapots · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Funny! I hated having to press a button to access my coffee with the Contigo and prefer my zojirushi lid because it stays out of the way and doesn't move once it's open. There's also a 20oz zojirushi available here!

I also like cleaning the lid of the zojirushi better - I drink cream in my coffee and found that contigo did not come as clean and definitely not as easily. The zojirushi pops apart and everything cleans easily. I did hear that contigo may have improved that, though, but I don't know as I haven't had one in a while. They both lock, so no accidental leaks can happen and each seal so nicely for tossing in a bag with no worries about leaking coffee on your things.

u/ShinyTile · 3 pointsr/Coffee

Ozark, read this.

EDIT: To be clear, the RTICs are good too, and if you care about lid performance, check out the Zojirushi or Hydroflask options as well. They're more expensive than the RTIC tumblers, but you get more (in terms of lid performance.) For the Yeti vs RTIC or Ozark though, hard left swipe to the Yeti. They're just ridiculously overpriced. It's literally just branding.

I've been using one for winter hiking. Boiled water and filled it the night before. Spent all day hiking with it in -10F temps. Got back to the hotel at night and the water was still too hot to drink. I usual carry uninsulated cold water bottles to mix with the Zojirushi to get it down to drinkable temps.

u/melrom · 3 pointsr/GiftIdeas

My hubby and I were both doing our PhDs at the same time at one point so I totally get the having no life thing. :D

  • Along the lines of the pocket knife, you can search for items like "everyday carry" or "EDC" items -- this includes flashlights, pocket knives, tactical pens, etc. PhD STEM types tend to like practical things. I've found some cool stuff for my hubs this way.
  • Another thing is one of these books: -- they are collections of comic strips but they're hilarious and super relatable to graduate school. They used to release a calendar every year but looks like they stopped. :(
  • Other non-conventional gifts to consider based on the fact that he's in graduate school and has no time on his hands...
    • Buy a pack of these disposable takeout containers and make frozen pre-prepared meals for him. If he's spending THAT much time in the lab, chances are he isn't eating as great as he should be. I cannot tell you enough how much this would've been appreciated by either of us while we were in graduate school.
    • Depending on your geolocation, there are some services that come pick up your laundry on a specific day of the week, do your laundry for you, and then return it, folded, and everything (Wash & Fold services). For reference to what I am talking about, it's similar to this company: If you're near a university, there's an increased chance of you having these services nearby. If you got him something like a couple months of this service, it's another thing that is a hassle to keep up with when you're super busy with work but one of those things that has to get done either way.
    • Depending on his eating habits, a grubhub (or similar) gift cert could be good if he orders takeout for either lunches or dinners during the week.
    • Spotify or Pandora subscription -- depends on if he enjoys music and what kind of lab he is in (i.e., whether he can play music while working). If he does enjoy music, another option is wireless headphones.
    • Does he drink tea or coffee? There are lots of nerdy mugs out there and you can pair that with some a nice tea assortment or coffee blend. If he does drink it but doesn't tend to make it himself, is there a coffee shop nearby to campus that offer gift certs?
    • If he's working in a wet lab, chances are he can't bring beverages inside with him -- so you might consider a nice new water bottle ( or a rugged travel mug ( The autosealing (hot and cold) ones by Contigo are very popular because they can be used on the go without worrying about leaking. If you have to leave your mug outside of the lab if you don't finish your coffee, you most likely want something that's also covered too.
    • If he writes or takes notes a lot, don't underestimate the power of a really nice pen. Super useful and randomly just brings great joy to us grad school folks. :D
u/watts · 2 pointsr/NavyBlazer
u/LouLoomis · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I can relate ... also was Mormon once.

  • Others have suggested instant coffee. I did this for years. Get a nice thermos (I like this one). All you need is hot water (+ cream and sugar if you like). It sucks that you have to hide this from your family but it's easy to do so if you think it might upset them. FYI, instant coffee sucks and at this point, I'd probably only drink it if I was camping. But for someone who has only had coffee 4 times, it's probably fine.
  • Hint: Any espresso-based drink will cost $4 or more. Espresso drinks require special equipment, and are hand-made for you. If you want to drink coffee from a coffee shop, just get a brewed coffee and add milk/sugar to your taste. This will typically cost ~$2 in a coffee shop.
  • Hint: McDonalds has pretty decent coffee, believe it or not. Maybe not good enough for many here but for a kid who's on a budget and canl;t drink coffee at home. It;'s a good deal. And after 5 coffees, you get a free drink which you can redeem as a latte, mocha, or whatever treat you like (get the McDonalds app for your phone).
  • If you have a chance to make coffee at home when no one is home, buy a hot plate and a moka pot. DO NOT BREW IT INDOORS. Use the garage or back patio instead.

u/femalewhopanics · 2 pointsr/ZeroWaste

If it's just for you, you can get a travel French press like this one.

u/Jemikwa · 2 pointsr/povertyfinance

I got a french press coffee mug last year and I've used it religiously since then. If you're curious, it's this one: (not a referral link, not a shill, just one I chose out as a gift idea). It's easy to wash, I rinse it out every day after work and I can just barely reach my hand in to clean the inside with a sponge before leaving it to dry for the next morning (I have medium sized hands).
At minimum, all you would need to make coffee is:

  • The mug
  • Some way to heat up water in another container - microwave, tea pot, hot water kettle (my personal preference, I use Amazon's brand kettle)
  • Coffee, pre ground if you want convenience, bean if you are a french press purist. If bean, you'll need a grinder too. The pre-ground coffee I buy is $6 for a 12oz bag, which lasts me for quite a few weeks.

    My process for making coffee:

  • Heat water, measure 2 Tbsp coffee grounds, pour into the mug (plunger is not inserted yet)
  • When water is near-boiling, pour into the cup. No plunger yet. Let steep for 3-4 minutes.
  • After 3 minutes, add sugar, cream, and ice (it's usually too hot for me to drink normally <:P)
  • Plunge coffee slowly and enjoy!

    You wouldn't need filters, a coffee machine, or anything else. I prefer the convenience of a kettle, but you could use a microwave too. It's portable, it tastes good imo, and it stays warm for a few hours.
u/wenestvedt · 2 pointsr/CampingGear

The Zojirushi travel cups will keep your coffee at burn-your-lips temperatures waaaay longer than you expect, or cold stuff icy for just as long, but they only come in 12- and 16-ounce sizes:

They also DO NOT OPEN in your bag, and are far more reliable than any other travel container that I have used (which is...more than I would like to admit to strangers).

That is THE best thermos you can buy. Nobody that ever bought it regretted spending the $ on it. It'll keep your coffee hot (I mean hot, not warm) for at least 8-12 hours easily. Just don't burn yourself. It'll also keep any ice water ice cold for about 24+ hours. Won't fit an aeropress though...

To solve the aeropress issue, you can push into that and pour into the thermos.

I use a vacuum insulated thermos. I have one that I use for storing meats and stuff as well as drinks. I can leave it in a hot car and still come out to an ice cold drink at the end of the day.

Plus, it keeps coffee hot for a really long time; if I don't finish all of my coffee in the morning, what's left is still warm when I get home in the evening.

This is what it looks like. Seems like a tight fit to me considering it's a bit less than half a liter. It could be a bit wider but if it gets any higher than mine, you'll have issues with the climate controls I think.

Other than that, the cup holders look nice. I'm sure a starbucks-like cup would fit in there just fine.

Going to hijack this thread in case someone wants my "cheap but picky" setup. Hard to drink anything else:

  • Whole beans from Costco. The one with the elephant on it is great for $18 but Kirkland is fine too.

  • french press from Ikea. $9. (Aeropress if you're just into 1 cup)

  • This grinder - set 3 from from coarsest. 6 seconds. Pour in hot water at ~85*C and steep for 3 mins, press it slowly.

  • Makes 1 huge mug plus one full thermos.

    Note that getting used to drinking less coffee is a good thing, and none after lunch if you can. Mostly for sleep quality.

  1. Don't put it on the fridge. Condensation is bad for electronics.
  2. Don't use a hair-dryer because that will just bake on all of the non-water components of your coffee.
  3. If you have accidental damage coverage in your warranty and are still within the warranty period, invoke it.
  4. If you don't have accident coverage or are outside the warranty period, you can get Dell to repair it for you, but it might cost as much as buying a new laptop.
  5. You can try taking the whole thing apart and cleaning anything that has coffee on it with electronics cleaner and a lint-free cloth. Dell's service manuals are pretty easy to follow. If it still doesn't work after cleaning, you're probably going to need to replace the motherboard and anything else that got coffee damage.

It works just as well as the Zojirushi and at this point, has less scratching on it despite being older. I see this thermos on sale quite often (and most stores, when not on sale, sell it for about $25, which is about equal to the LOWEST the zojirushi has ever been).

I'm not saying the Zojirushi is over-hyped, because it absolutely lives up to expectations. The thing is, it's just an insulated thermos. There's no new space age technology inside or some high tech manufacturing process that makes it leagues better than competitors. It's just a solid thermos that (usually) costs way too much.

tl;dr- This is on sale, that's cool. Other products work just as well and generally cost less.

u/drumofny · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I think the best option is a Nissan Thermos travel mug. The second best option is a Contigo travel mug. The reason I like the Nissan more is because it keeps my beverages hotter for much longer, it is much easier to break all the way down (taking off rubber seals and whatnot), I like drinking out of it more and the overall construction seems a bit nicer. Many people will surely tout the Contigo. I have one and it does get used, but if I were to lose it I would replace it with another Nissan Thermos travel mug.

u/r0d3nka · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Sorry, the correct answer was the Thermos 16-Ounce Stainless-Steel Backpack Bottle, Silver. All the great things the BIFL folks said are true. Easy to maintain/Bulletproof/ and amazing insulation (vacuum FTW).

u/itskaylan · 2 pointsr/Bento

It's an insulated lunch jar with containers that fit inside for different kinds of foods (soup, rice/main, side dish): Amazon link. They also make a Mr Bento, which is bigger. Mine isn't actually a Ms Bento, but it's similar: link.

I've also got a lunch box set which has an insulated container for the main dish and two side cars that nestle against it for other dishes. Like this but mine is plain black.

u/drinkonlyscotch · 2 pointsr/vegan1200isplenty

A kinda pricey, but totally fun option would be to pick up a fancy bento box which can keep hot and cold items hot and cold for hours and hours even when packed together! Go full on Asian with rice, kimchi, veggies, and a miso soup!

u/peeholestinger · 2 pointsr/CampingandHiking

Maybe something like this?

I have one of their coffee Thermoses and its great! Not sure how waterproof the other compartments are compared to the soup one.

u/Beachwood45789 · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I know I'm a little late to the party on this thread, but this bento lunch box (there's also a Mr. Bento which is one container bigger) is awesome. It's insulated, big enough to fit soup, a salad and some crackers cheese and meat or whatever else you choose. There are a lot of Flickr groups and websites that have bento lunch recipes and it eventually becomes fun to try and figure out what you'd like to make next.

u/DSchmitt · 2 pointsr/JapaneseFood

Zojirushi Ms Bento is nice. The individual compartments are microwavable, and the thermos shell keeps it hot (or cold, if you do a cold bento).

u/dingdove · 2 pointsr/tea

This one is just amazing, the water is still warm after 24 hours. I use this for the picnic and the water burns me all the time.

And, get a smaller one for the milk, thermos keeps cold as well! I use it for ice in the summer time.

u/LetsTryScience · 2 pointsr/Frugal

I have this style


It has lasted through two years of college being tossed around and abused. The top had an insulated cap with a rubber seal so it can be juggled without spilling. Sometimes I would get coffee at 8am and forget to drink it, getting home at 7pm it would still be hot enough that I had to sip it. They have 16oz-40oz thermoses and shorter fatter containers for food. It is a double wall insulated container. I know the aluminum water bottles are popular now but they are too hot to hold with coffee and lose heat fast.

u/Redcat1991 · 2 pointsr/tea


the iced ingenuitea makes just enough to still leave room for milk in the thermos, if he likes it in his tea. plus maybe get him a couple of sample sizes of tea to try, maybe cinnamon, candy cane, ect.

u/gl1tch · 2 pointsr/tea

A pack stove is what you're looking for. They run on solid, liquid, or gas fuel and span a wide range of prices. Jetboil is a popular but pricey brand with many models. This means you will be carrying the stove, the fuel, and another container for the water.

If you're talking about a day hike then your best option is to get a good thermos just fill it up before you leave. It will be a lot less hassle, weigh less, and take up less space.

u/OneLegAtATime · 2 pointsr/bicycling

how much coffee do you need?\

I can vouch for this one personally. Keeps beverages insanely hot/cold forever. Used to carry 40oz of coffee or tea with me when I would dive all day (hours on hours in 50˚F water for work) and it was a godsend. It used to be stanley that held the gold in the thermos market, but apparently their QC has gone way downhill.

I've seen my friends with the little thermos brand food containers, but they're a bit heavy. Especially if you're going to be nuking the food at work, then you don't need something that will retain heat. If you're a sandwich man, any grocery store will have light plastic tupperwares for that. Otherwise, keep a bowl at work and bring stuff in plastic. If you're worried about it getting squished, bring glass or get back racks on your bicycle to increase storage space.

u/try_another4 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

A Thermos brand thermos for road trips and camping! I've always wanted an actual, working thermos.

u/a_flyin_muffin · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Here you go. I know that this isn't exactly what you're looking for, but the lid functions as a cup, and it appears to be relatively good quality, although not necessarily BIFL. I don't think that you're going to find something that unscrews in the middle, and I'm not really sure why you want aluminum specifically. This one is stainless steel.

u/Finkelstein · 2 pointsr/Coffee

Have you looked at this Thermos? I've bought 4 personally. First for my wife, only to get jealous and want my own, and I've given two out as gifts. I love it, and on busy days I still have warm coffee until noon.

u/plaidpaint · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I have a Thermos travel tumbler that works well.

Very clear open-closed indicator on the top. Seals completely when closed, so no leaking in transit. Lid comes apart for cleaning.

I've only had it for a couple months, so I can't speak for the longevity, but no issues so far.

u/Muertismo · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I started with an OXO and had it for years. it was spill proof, kept my coffee hot for hours and hours, the spout was comfy, but the lid mechanism didn't break apart for cleaning. Eventually this became a problem... seals stretched and I would have to find creative ways to keep the breather hole clear of coffee particulate.

About a year ago I replaced the oxo for a Thermos.. The lid breaks apart for easy cleaning, and it certainly keeps the contents hot. So hot, in fact, that It took a while to get used to how much hotter the coffee was. after a year or so, its the only complaint I have. Coffee is too hot to drink sometimes.
Both mugs are stainless inside, but the thermos is unibody and the oxo had a plastic top portion.

Good luck!

u/datasskipz · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I'd reccommend just getting a new vessel. I have one of these and it's built like a tank and lasted over 4 years. Easily the best travel mug I've ever owned.

u/Cenzo · 2 pointsr/bicycling

I use this. It fits in my bottle cage, however I usually carry it in the water bottle holder of my bookbag. It is completely spill proof, so you could close it and throw it in a bag without worrying at all about spillage. It also disassembles so that you can clean every nook. And it keeps coffee warm longer than any mug I have ever used (and almost as long as a vacuum thermos). Hot coffee in the morning is still warm at the end of the day, and not quite room temp until late evening.

u/Megatron_McLargeHuge · 2 pointsr/Coffee

This Thermos one has a great lid and fits the Aeropress.

u/dangerllama · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

Interesting that Amazon apparently has a category called "Commuter & Travel Mugs"…and also a category called "Travel & To-Go Drinkware." The Zojirushi is #1 in the former, and the Thermos Stainless 16-oz is king of the later category. One wonders how many other travel/mug categories there are.

I own 16-oz thermos and really like it with two exceptions: The finish is wearing off the top of the mug, exposing the stainless steel beneath. And the bottom of the mug is smaller than a lot of modern car cupholders, meaning the thing is prone to tipping back and forth in cupholders that don't have one of those springy tensioner mechanisms. Luckily it's highly spill-resistant (It's been sideways in my passenger seat before without issue), so the tipping isn't really a big deal. You could honestly keep this thing sideways in the car seat next to you.

Also, I accidentally misplaced one of the rubber gaskets while cleaning my Thermos. I mailed Thermos and they sent me a complete replacement lid (all components included) free of charge. Huge props to any company that is committed to that level of customer service.

That said, I wouldn't toss this thing inside a backpack, or otherwise leave it to its own devices if it weren't right side up. It also won't keep your coffee hot for half a day, though it will keep it warm for an hour or two, which is plenty more than most folks need.

tl;dr: If you're looking for more of a "thermos" mug, I'd go with the Zojirushi (I'm actually probably going to order one for my backcountry pursuits as modern Thermos "thermoses" are apparently garbage). If you're looking for something to use in the car, I'd definitely recommend the Thermos travel mug.

u/deAdupchowder350 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I love this guy. I accidentally left him on the top of my car, took off and and he flew right off! A few scratches and a bump I undid with a hammer but he's still sexy. Also, these vacuum guys almost work too well. After years of getting used to Newton's Law of Cooling, I'm always surprised when my coffee maintains its temperature.

u/Sokathhiseyesuncovrd · 2 pointsr/personalfinance

You should try a Thermos travel mug! It far exceeds the Contigo in performance. Beverages stay piping hot for HOURS (3-4). The Contigo gradually cools off in about an hour.

I just realized that this performance is without utilizing their pre-chill/pre-heat suggestion, which makes sense. I could even run a batch of hot water directly from my Keurig into my mug before making my coffee.

BTW, on my old-style Keurig, I use the middle cup + smallest cup to fill this. Largest cup + smallest overflows. I use the same pod for both brews; I don't think it's too weak if you're using a strong coffee to begin with.

u/nerdybirdie · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

You were going to buy this, but now you're going to change it to this because anything else is a waste of your hard earned cash! (seriously, Thermos needs to start paying me for how much advertising I do for them. I fucking love my Thermos products.)

u/doopdoop9 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

They both seem well rated. When you say shiny, that means I should have a cup made of steel?

This Guy. Small enough to fit in my tank bag, holds plenty of coffee to get me through the morning, and will keep it warm until the end of the day if kept closed.

u/YanonAmos · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I have the Bodum Brazil french press and I really like it. It's super easy to clean, you can just unscrew the filter, rinse, and put it in the dishwasher after cleaning out the grinds. It comes in a 12 ounce size, which might be what you're looking for. Bodum is typically a good brand to go with. All on Amazon.

With the French Press, you have to pour the coffee out of the press immediately after you've pressed the filter. Otherwise it'll continue brewing and get gross. I have a 16 Ounce Thermos so I pour straight into that after preheating, seal it up and then I'm good. I bring a coffee mug and empty a little bit in when I drink it. It keeps coffee hot for hours. You'll need some sort of insulated apparatus to pour your coffee in to if you make more than one cup.

For beans - check out this post for a local roaster near you. I only really know philly and LA beans, beyond that I don't really know which would be good to get. If you're totally lost and don't know where to start, go with a subscription service like Moustache Coffee Club. They send you a bag of beans every month, couple of weeks or every week if you choose. It's all great coffee from some of the best roasters in LA. Their prices are some of the best. Other subscriptions LOOK like they cost less, but if you factor in price, shipping and amount they ship, Moustache is actually significantly less expensive. Free shipping, about 17.50 a bag total, for quality fresh roasted coffee. That still factors out to less than a dollar per cup of coffee, which is much less than some cups you can buy most coffee shops.

Don't get beans on Amazon. You should look for somewhere that can send you beans that are fresh roasted, within a couple days of being roasted. It's a huge difference.

u/cata_tonic · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I purchased a Thermos Sipp a few months ago after having the regular Starbucks and grocery store travel mugs leave me wanting. The Sipp is amazing. Keeps it hot for 4-5 hours depending on if I have the vent open, and doesn't spill a drop if it is closed. Highly recommend.

I can't recommend this thermos enough. Although it doesn't have a compartment, it does have a hook for your tea bag.

I rave about this thing to everyone I can. Keeps my hot drinks hot to the point it's almost dangerous. Doesn't matter if I'm at the office or skiing down a mountain all day. Also keeps my cold drinks cold in the blistering sun for at least 18 holes of golf.

u/JP2214 · 2 pointsr/gadgets

On the other hand, I highly recommend an old style vacuum bottle. They retain heat ridiculously well and use no power since it is an inherent property of the bottle's construction.

Zojirushi is a Japanese brand of kitchen appliances and storage items, but I was referring to their insulated mug that everyone says is amazing. So far I agree.

u/2capp · 2 pointsr/rawdenim

I got a 12oz version a while ago and I love it. Never spills, easy to drink from, keeps things hot for hours. It's worth pointing out that the newer ones have some kind of coating on the inside that may or may not give you cancer. Here's a link to the old model that doesn't have the new coating.

u/capslockfury · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I use zojirushi for my iced coffee and my cold brew. The ice melts in my iced coffee because the coffee isn't really cold because it's not refrigerated(I do a pour over on ice, which melts all the ice). So I add 2-3 cubes of ice and it melts and doesn't really dilute it much.

As for cold brew, I'll dilute it with some water, add a few cubes of ice, and I'm good with delicious cold coffee. It's pretty tough, you only need one hand to handle it as the top pops open and stays open, and it doesn't sweat at all. Pretty easy to clean, too.

I know you want cold coffee, but if you ever use hot in this thing, it'll keep hot for 6+ hours. I don't know how long it will actually stay hot, as I'm usually done before 3 hours. But I forgot about my coffee once and it was hot after 6 hours of just sitting there.

u/Jeebz88 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I've used this Zojirushi mug for about 5 years. It's amazing. It's coated and doesn't change the flavor of coffee. It insulates so well that I drop an ice cube into my pourover when I pour it in so that I can drink my coffee right away. It's classy looking. Most importantly, you can throw it in a bag, turn it upside-down, shake it, or drop it on the ground, and it won't spill. I'm a bike commuter and this mug hasn't let me down yet.

Edit - the only downside is that it isn't dishwasher safe. I rinse it daily, soap every now and then, and wash it with cafiza once every few months to get built up coffee oils out - that's been enough for me.

u/kakanczu · 2 pointsr/dataisbeautiful

I'm assuming you're talking about this one.. Yes, it's basically magic. If you don't pour it into another mug or leave the lid off, it'll be too hot to drink 8+ hours later. I accidentally left in the fridge all day at work. It was still well above room temperature at the end of the day.

u/ineverpayretail · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I initially used this, but it was TOO HOT to drink . go figure.

I use this daily now.

Thinking about switching, as I get a weird taste imparted when using the press and sip top, I normally just screw off the cap and drink it from there.

EDIT: You're in luck, both are on sale right now. The Zojirushi isn't but a competitor "Tiger", they are both asian brands with reputable thermal insulation, is on sale.

The amazon link should show a lower price of 11.77. Pretty good price, normally around 15-20

u/10maxpower01 · 2 pointsr/Coffee

I use a french press and sediment is totally fine by me. What I didn't like is that it basically took away all the convenience of using the Keurig. I used it a couple times and switched to just brewing it at home and bringing it to work in a thermos. Well... Technically it's a Zojirushi.

If you're okay spending ~10 minutes getting it in the machine and whatnot then cleaning it out then it's a pretty good investment. It does make good coffee. It's just a bit more work than I expected.

u/toastytreat · 2 pointsr/tea

I brew my tea at home in my pot, then pour it into my travel mug before I leave for work in the morning. This is the travel mug I use. Keeps my tea hot even if I can't get to it right away. It's so hot straight from the mug that I usually pour it into my work teacup and drink it that way.

u/UncleTouchUBad · 2 pointsr/Coffee

That's a tough one. There are a lot of brewing devices under $25.
This site has a wide variety of coffee goods. I've linked the "Under $50 gift ideas" section. Try that.

Looking in there, I saw an Aeropress (My favorite way to make a single cup of black coffee), I saw a super cheap v60 pourover device for like $5 which would leave you money to buy some gourmet coffee to go with it.

If he really loves good coffee you could order some stuff from stumptown coffee or blue bottle or one of those fancy places online.

a bag of coffee is never a bad gift for someone who likes coffee. a brewing device is a bit riskier as they may already have one and some of them require other gear and you don't know what he has and doesn't have.

Also worth mentioning are these Zojirushi thermoses. The Zojirushi ones are made with some kind of black magic that keeps heat trapped inside for amounts of time that defies physics. There's the one I linked which pours into a cup or there's the other style that you drink straight from. I prefer the cup style because the coffee stays burning hot for so long that I need to pour it into the cup to let it cool while I sip. I always burn my tongue on the other style though it's better when driving. I have both. Only bad thing is it is a few dollars over your mark. But all the good Secret Santa gifts go a little over. ;)

Anyhow, hope that helps.

Modern MRE bags will have a bag that you add water to and a chemical pouch it has and it heats the food pouch. You dont want to drink that water but you could possibly have a water pouch that gets heated instead of the food pouch.

A bit convoluted to get hot water but...its possible.

It keeps all beverages piping hot for the full day and I now never have to drink room temperature coffee or tea. I once filled it and put it in the fridge overnight so I could take iced coffee to work the next day. The next morning I took a swig...and burnt my tongue. If you put chilled beverages in with ice...the ice is still in the thermos at the end of the day. It also comes with a locking cap so I never spill. It's. Just. Amazing.

I have this coffee pot and a reusable filter, which is one button and almost idiot proof unless you forget to turn it off. I would maybe get one with an auto shut off instead.

A little background here. I am from Nicaragua, and i've been a coffe drinker since before i was a year old.

We are given cafe con leche mixed with sweet cookies mixed in as a mush as kids.

Anyway, i've tried all kinds of coffee brewing types. From the chorreado wich is the way the haciendas/fincas/plantations make coffee, to french pressed, cuban style (stove top), etc etc.

I am not looking for a better way to brew coffee, i basically use this little coffee maker 'cause i'm too lazy to make coffee any other way in the morning.

I am currently using Dunkin' Donuts coffee which to me is pretty good.

I have tried maxwell house, folger's, and they taste terrible. My question is, is there any coffee out there that tastes like dunkin' donuts coffee? I am just trying to save some money as dunkin donuts coffee has drastically gone up in price since the company changed its image and trying to be more like starbucks.

I like central american coffee cafe britt from costa rica, and especially dipilto shade grown from nicaragua, hell even cafe 1800 is ok, but using this single serve coffee maker i am looking for a coffee grind like dunkin' donuts. something not too strong, and that makes a good tastintg cup of coffee...

so , anyone care to suggest a coffee grind/brand?

Dump in water, dump in coffee, press button. Costs 1/5 of a Keurig, no filters, requires a quick rinse of a filter each use. Can use any damn coffee you want forever! Seriously, Keurig has snowed all you who use them. Not to mention the damn waste. I've walked into office break rooms and seen trashcans almost running over with the stupid plastic k-cups. Keurig coffee is overpriced, the machines are overpriced, and the coffee is beyond sub par. You'll get better coffee from the machine I linked and it will cost you probably around $.05 a cup and t he convenience is absolutely comparable.

I got a Keurig for Christmas. It was cool; no doubt. But I'd had one of these for years. It uses regular grounds; doesn't take long to make a cup. The K-cups were so expensive that I ended up donating the Keurig to the office.

u/chizzle91 · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I actually want this for my husband

I don't dink coffee, he does. But not so often that it's made its way up our priority list. (He will drink it if it's there though!) It's been a running joke for about 4 years now that I would totally buy a coffee maker just for the smell. I LOVE the smell of coffee!

I suppose my number shall be 73 :D

For a second place maybe?

u/samysam602 · 1 pointr/Coffee

Have you looked into one cup makers? The Brew n' Go is a more price efficient alternative to the K-cup. This model seems to exclude a hot plate on the bottom, making it follow dorm rules. You can use disposable cone filters so clean-up won't be too difficult.

Super quick search New Coffee Maker

Single cup with a free travel mug

These leave you money left over to buy some nice coffee by the pound and you have coffee everyday for a month. You could also go to Goodwill or Salvation Army and get a used one for only a few bucks.

Do what you want with your cash, but you are throwing money away by not being more frugal with it and you are making excuses on top of it.

u/BigDave121 · 1 pointr/RATS

I buy six or eight 12 packs of Seltzer at a time. I drink at least a 12-pack per day

I decided I would throw a couple of empty 12 packs in upside down on the bottom floor of the two story Critter Nation cage. I don't know why I chose upside down, but that's the way they ended up liking it. This was about three weeks ago.

Now, they prefer the empty boxes to all the expensive habitats that I bought for them. Go figure. They often sleep in the boxes. When they pee in them, and the cardboard gets soggy, I just throw it out and put a new fresh empty box in. Low maintenance.

And get this. I only drink two flavors Black Cherry and yes, Pomegranate. Polar is the only brand that I buy.
Cue Twilight Zone music.

Tip; If you'll like Seltzer, you'll love this. It keeps your Seltzer cold for an hour and keeps it from going flat too! It's saved me so much money since I bought it, that I bought a second one.

It fits in all of my cup holders in my car too. 100 times better than those bulky foam coozies.

I got one I use for work, and one I keep in the house.

Buy a thermos instead.

u/Lilliaan · 1 pointr/tea

I have travel mugs from David's tea. They have have the ones that unscrew on top, or flip open. They have kept my tea and other drink hot for hours and icy cold for just as long.

I would also recommend Zojirushi tumblers (like this one), they are excellent as well, or Thermos tumblers (like this).

Just decide on what kind of design you want, flip open or screw open top, and then which size fits you better, as in 12oz or 16 oz or 20 oz. Most of them are stainless steel inside which is excellent and most tops are easy to clean.

I would recommend travel mugs from any of those brands, as me and my family have used them, and the only reason i ever get a new one, is because i want a different color or different capacity.

u/fisheye32 · 1 pointr/Frugal

I carry this water bottle and this coffee mug to work everyday. I frequently take the water bottle with me when I'm out during the weekends, but not always.

u/hybrid184 · 1 pointr/personalfinance

As others have said "6 months of expenses" but I'm going to recommend a bit further as a template plan

  1. Look at your expenses per month vs your take home; if you have $100 bucks every month left over do yourself a favor and transfer $80 of that into a savings account each paycheck (auto transfer if possible)

  2. Look at your expenses as others have said; Sometimes you want that pep that comes from a soda but you'll do your health and your wallet a favor by drinking water if possible. Go a step further and invest in a good thermos such as this one ( rather than spending money on bottled water each time. Cut out other things like starbucks if you can.

  3. Things like multi-vitamins may or may not be beneficial to you - a lot depends on the dosage and release mechanism so just because something says 2000% RDA doesn't mean your body may necessarily absorb all of it. Vitamin C is a great example where the body will release excess into the urine but this is true of virtually all vitamins as well. As you're female the big ones you should nonetheless focus on are Vitamin A, D, E and potassium (especially potassium!) it makes a massive difference to your health.

  4. Back to money matters - be aggressive about ensuring you have at least a $500 emergency fund on hand at all times, 3-6 times that would be even better but do as well as you can. The reason is you never know when you need an emergency visit to the ER or Dentist (e.g impacted tooth or needing a root canal and crown not fully covered by insurance, etc.)

  5. As you are a fairly young adult take some time to sit down and draw out a career map. Think about where you are now and what you would like to be doing in 3 years from now, 7 and 12. The years are arbitrary but it helps to focus things. The main point is looking at where you are the thing you listed as what you'd like to be doing career wise and then writing down the steps involved to reach that point. Do some research if you can spare the time. You'd be surprised at how easy or even difficult things can be until you actually put them down in writing as to the steps involved.

    Lastly best of luck, its tough at first as long as you keep a level head you'll do well.

u/ConstipatedNinja · 1 pointr/Coffee

I absolutely love my vacuum thermos. I use a 1.1 Quart Stanley vacuum thermos. It can hold just shy of 8 cups of coffee, which means when I brew coffee in the morning, I drink one cup and put the rest in the thermos for the work day, and that works really well. If I didn't drink all of my coffee during the day, it's almost always hot enough the next morning to drink and be merry.

Even better, since it's thick-ass stainless steel, it has taken a lot of massive beatings and only has a very light dent where it fell several feet and landed its bottom corner against a street curb. My father-in-law has two of them that survived a house fire in the source room hot enough that it melted the front of his truck parked 50 feet from the house.

u/TogetherWithMe · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

My dad loves hunting deer too! I got him this thermos for Christmas(because he asked specifically for it). It is heavy duty and will keep his coffee warm while he is waiting for Bambi! On the .com site it has 667 reviews with a rating of 4.1

u/housewifeonfridays · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I use a Thermos Backpack Bottle for all my hot or cold beverage needs. It keeps stuff hot of cold for hours. I doesn't leak. It has a little latch on the top so you can securely close it. I even put it in my purse with books and things! When you drink from it, it is like drinking from a cup, so you get the aroma of the beverage. It is fairly easy to clean. The only problem I have had with mine is that the color (mine was brown) came off and now it is just silver steel. It is steel inside and out. Feel free to ask me more questions. I am kind of passionate about this bottle.

u/gucksaq · 1 pointr/Coffee

I just bought this one and am really pleased. I accidentally left coffee in it overnight and when I got up the next morning, it was still warm. Not that I drank the yesterday coffee, but it was impressive nonetheless.

u/jle3473 · 1 pointr/Coffee

Nissan travel mugs are the best. THE BEST. I've used two different ones, and they have both astounded me. My coffee will sit in a cold winter car for 24 hours, and still be warm. Not even close to hot, mind you, but warm to the tongue. It literally defies reason.

GET A NISSAN TRAVEL MUG and never go back.

Edit: Apparently they are owned by Thermos? These are the two I've used...

u/icanseestars · 1 pointr/bicycling
  • Camelbak Ice bottles (2) filled to top with ice and water (or sports drink)
  • Dash of lite salt into each bottle
  • Spare ice in the thermos
  • Extra bottles of water in the rack bag
  • A hat, not a helmet
  • A bandana around my head to catch the sweat (I carry a second to swap out half way).
  • Do -NOT- wear cotton anything

    Now then, if I feel really hot, like I'm headed toward trouble, I squirt some of that ice cold water on my back while I ride. If it gets really really bad, I take one of the bandanas, get it wet and tie it to the back of my hat, draping across my shoulders.
u/ncccatx · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I can't believe Thermos Nissan was so far down. I've used the backpack bottle for the past 5-6 years and the only issue I've had was losing them

u/iBlaze4sc · 1 pointr/bicycling

I use one of these and it is the best thing I've ever bought. I put it in a sock so it doesn't rattle in my water bottle cage, or just throw it in my backpack without any worry of it leaking.

My physical dependence might be a result of many years of consuming copious amount of caffeine or maybe just my own special genetic predisposition to migraines, to be fair.

u/a_proper_potato · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Buy a well insulated bottle (e.g. this) and fill it with ice, then whatever space is left fill it with water. Unless it's sitting directly in the sun all day, it should keep cool and you can keep refilling the water.

Alternatively, buy a giant 2L jug of water, take the cap off and freeze it overnight, and bring that with you the next day.

u/irishcocacola · 1 pointr/Frugal

I would invest in the following:

  • Iced Tea Maker
  • Tea [$2-3] for 100 bags, Coffee [$5-10]/lb
  • Water heater/Electric Kettle
  • A French Press/Coffee Maker.
  • A good Thermos [$20-30]
  • Sigg Water Bottle [~$20]

    Diet coke can be addictive. I was drinking it for the caffeine - but I realized how expensive it was and switched to making my own coffee/tea/iced tea in the morning and packing it in a large thermos for work. I probably saved ~ $500 doing this for the past year.

    I also mention the Sigg Water bottle because I was getting dehydrated and bottled water is a huge waste of money. So I would always pack a water bottle as well to stay hydrated.

And one of These

I have that Thermos and take it to work with me everyday. I was spending $2 a pop at the coffee joint everyday for their biggest sized cup. Now i take the thermos. Some days ill have 1 cup. Some times 3. A few times ill polish the thing off. You never know what kind of day youll be having. Either way your coffee will stay hot all day. Hell the coffee is still warm in the morning when i dump the excess out the next day.

Maintenance is easy. I personally have never washed mine but i think the ol lady has a couple times. If you are a cream and/or sugar guy then id wash it...or buy a bundle and keep it at your desk.

You can get a good insulated container (appropriately sized for your needs) and transfer the coffee from the Chemex to the insulated vessel. I essentially do the same thing everyday to bring my coffee to work (but in a smaller insulated zoijurishi).

I have three of these. I use one in the morning and one in the afternoon, and there is a spare in case I leave one somewhere or want to share.

This is my favorite travel mug! It rules. Nothing ever spills, it keeps stuff the same temperature for 5-6 hours, and it's very easy and comfortable to drink from. I really dislike putting my mouth on plastic when drinking coffee, so the stainless steel rim is neat. This is also the only travel mug I have ever owned that doesn't leak AT ALL. It's a little annoying to clean, which is its only drawback in my book! I thought about buying the Contigo, but my experience with mugs that have similar sealing mechanisms was not great.

u/creepyunclejoe · 1 pointr/Coffee

u/Captcha_Imagination · 1 pointr/Coffee

My favorite "mug" right now is a travel tumbler

It's 16 oz or 473 ml but there are smaller sizes available. I drink the whole thing with French Press and a bit of milk as my morning coffee.

What I love about it is that I can leisurely drink a large coffee over 30 minutes and the temperature stays hot.....and this is with the top completely off (I don't like drinking through the hole even though it's well designed....would use it while driving though). I like this tumbler so much I even use it when I am home. If I am drinking this much coffee in a conventional mug I will end up chugging the last third or half because it's getting cold.

There are options with handles but I like the clean look of the tumbler. You can grab it how you want, ice water or boiling water inside, you will feel nothing. You can also set it down on anything because it's cool to the touch. People at work have commented on the stylish look of it as well.

With the lid, the coffee will stay hot enough to drink for hours. I wouldn't drink 8 hour coffee even if it was in a thermos but in theory you could. However it'll definitely keep on your commute to work if you want to drink it at your desk instead of on the way.

u/whitespace37 · 1 pointr/Coffee

I use a Thermos Sipp. Been using it for about a year. Keeps the coffee very hot and is relatively easy to clean. Because it is made out of stainless steel you don't get the nasty plastic flavor. The top is constructed of plastic but this does not seem to effect the flavor. I would recommend it.

u/yui89 · 1 pointr/LifeProTips

Add-on comment: before you buy it, look it over really well. Ask yourself, “can I clean every square inch of this, inside and out?”

Many water bottles have intricate lid mechanisms that are notorious for getting grimy. Some base units have very narrow openings that make cleaning the interior virtually impossible.

Ideally you want to be able to deconstruct the entire lid for cleaning and have an opening big enough to fit your hand or a decent bottle brush.

Here is the one I settled on. Keeps the temp for hours, and the lid splits up into a half dozen pieces for easy cleaning.

u/birdeeboo · 1 pointr/Coffee

I use a Thermos Sipp Tumbler almost daily and it has done magnificently. The lid assembly can be tricky if you ever take it apart, just make sure everything is reassembled correctly. Aside from that, it has never leaked, despite being tossed in my backpack or rolling around on the floor in my car. Excellent travel thermos.

u/acl5d · 1 pointr/Coffee

This guy has been my trusty companion for the last few years in grad school and I love it. All the gaskets come apart for easy cleaning. I've never thrown it into a bag while full, but it keeps a really good seal and you can shake it all around without any leaks.

I personally do not, as I don't find that this process cools down my coffee much (and I have a super sweet thermos I bring my BPC to work in so it stays hot for hours). But I don't see why you couldn't.

So if you missed it in the mail soon, but it's a frustrating solution. They have a few pieces of barware that I have to disagree on the quality and value. (and that is on the very low end of quality, locally roasted bag of coffee, and a Zojirushi 500 ml mug.

I used these for ~5-6 years each. I ended up breaking them/dropping them one too many times so I threw them out to try the new "style" the bottle itself wasn't as durable and the style was too clunky. I prefer minimalist looks.


If you're looking for something to keep hot water in I recommend either the elephant (zojirushi) or tiger brand. Both are top brands in asia cough Japan cough and I've once left water in the elephant brand for ~30 hours. Still warm. :)

Hiking gps if you don’t have one? It’s a functional safety thing. If you don’t have a fave thermal hot/cold mug these are the best. Zojirushi SM-SD60NM Stainless Steel Mug, 20-Ounce, Matte Gold you want the SA60 not the new design. That’s the stainless steel one. I’ve had one a couple years now. My only advice on it is put hot beverages in at the temp you drink them. It doesn’t start cooling for like 6-8 hours. It stays cool for 8 hours or more so you don’t have to pack with ice. It snaps apart for cleaning. Bpa free plastic. Stainless steel inside. While it’s not cheap it works great and lasts with no condensation. The lid locks and it doesn’t leak. Avoid this one. Zojirushi SM-KHE48AG Stainless Steel Mug, 16oz, Smoky Blue the redesigned is crappy.

u/Hirsute_Kong · 1 pointr/EatCheapAndHealthy

To improve upon this habit, get a bottle that you like and is easy to carry. I carry a Zojirushi because I personally like the "metallic" taste you tend to get with metal bottles and this bottle is slim so it tends to fit easily in my back pocket when I'm walking around. For those that wear form fitting clothing, that may not be an option for you.

3: I'm very deep in debt (can we say 6 figures?!) from student loans because I am in medical school. Needless to say, I have a very strict and minimal budget for the next 8 years, and my family is helping me with my loans as much as they can, so I'm not asking for anything for Christmas, either. My school is also in a very tropical climate, so there is no 'winter' here; it'd be nice to come home to something to remind me that Christmas does in fact exist!

Regardless of who wins, thanks for doing this! You're making someone's day a whole lot brighter!

I love this! Thanks for being a great gifter and holding this contest!

u/NarcolepZZZZZZ · 1 pointr/photography

Well, I've found this awesome mug ...

u/celticchrys · 1 pointr/tea

I have this one, and it works great, as long as you don't overfill it. Very sturdy. Stainless interior. Stays hot a looong time.

u/nacho_cheezus · 1 pointr/Wishlist

QOTD, I have this travel mug, coffee doesn't come out until I push a button.

u/KeenanPayne · 1 pointr/Coffee

I have a Stanley one-hand thermos. It works great for commuting, it's indestructible, and it keeps drinks warm and cold for a very long time.

u/f_sick · 1 pointr/Coffee

I love my Stanley mug. It’s designed to be used one handed and keeps my coffee hot for hours (if the coffee lasts that long).

u/TheAngryBadger_ · 1 pointr/Coffee

Have you looked at Stanley yet? I have this one but, it appears to have been replaced by a newer version


I don't have any experience with the newer version (which also comes as a 20 ounce), but I'd assume it's pretty good. I have quite a few different Stanley thermoses, as well as the mug. All of them hold temp well, whether it be cold or hot. The only time one leaked was when I didn't fully tighten the lid, otherwise no issues. They are also pretty tough....I've dropped them a few times while hiking, and they've been fine. I'm not sure why Stanley gets so much hate online, I've always had great luck with their products.

u/coffee-and-bunnies · 1 pointr/Coffee

Not glass, but I use a Stanley vacuum mug and highly reccommend it. Spill-proof, break-proof, and keeps my coffee warm for hours. I haven't noticed it altering the taste of my coffee.

u/GhostOfTheNet · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

A lunchbox item like this one. This is a 24-ounce one, and there is a 16-ounce one, too. Cooking and food preparation would be necessary, but in the long run, it promotes healthier eating, and it helps save some money from not buying lunch and eating out for lunch all the times. Thank you for the contest!

u/kukulaj · 1 pointr/bicycletouring

This is big:

but it might work for cooking a whole meal by retained heat - like rice, lentils, and maybe some carrots or whatever.

u/StonedSectoid · 1 pointr/argentina

Me vendria bien para usar con lo que yo me quiero comprar.
(aca te rompen el orto por esa gilada)

u/LostxinthexMusic · 1 pointr/talesfromtechsupport

No, one of these with a hot pot/electric kettle. Won't even need the break room, if he can keep the kettle in his office.

u/stalemunchies · 1 pointr/Coffee

It is not quite as conventional, but I have something like this that allows me just to boil water and brew on the go. Mine even has a small screw in compartment in the bottom for additional grounds for a second brew.

u/Lady_Bernkastel · 1 pointr/bicycletouring

It's this one.

It's fantastic. Keeps the contents hot for several hours. My father went and bought several of them for gifts, but he says the defect rate is relatively high. Some insulate extremely well, like a thermos. The others aren't that much better than a regular travel mug.

u/Flamo_the_Idiot_Boy · 1 pointr/todayilearned

You can also get mugs with the press built in that just make a single serve.

Like this.

We have a couple of them and they're great.

u/cypherpunks · 1 pointr/Coffee

A good coarse grind. A basic blade grinder produces a wide variety of particle sizes, from largeish chunks to "fines" that will pass right through the sieve. If you don't mind the fines, that's great, but if you do, you need a better grinder. (Any of the Baratza models are good.)

There are also one-cup insulated french presses that you can take with you and drink from after plunging, so you can postpone cleanup.

u/xpowa · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Too far down but so very true.
I've got everything you mentioned and my wife has the Eco-brew k cups that we throw regular fresh grind in. There is no reason to re heat percolated brew, especially if you want to enjoy it.

My aero press with a reusable mesh filter is in my work or travel bag. Saves me so much money and it's one of so many press options out there.

u/NiceGuyJoe · 1 pointr/yerbamate

Ah, Well what about one of those French Press coffee cups that have the plunger inside, like this:

The only thing I could think is that when you pulled the plunger out it would have leaves and sticks all over it and be messy. But maybe there's another way to put the hot water in.

Post whatever solution you figure out here!

u/McChookter · 1 pointr/tea

Okay I've Bought one case closed.
Thanks to everyone who suggested a mug but i went with this one

ZOJIRUSHI products seem to keep warm for ridiculous periods of time :D

u/Flouyd · 1 pointr/dataisbeautiful

I got one of these and it holds my coffee warm for all of my work day (up to 9 hours)

u/HappySlice · 1 pointr/Coffee

Amazon said there's a "newer model". Does this look like it has the same design/features? (It's also eligible for prime where the old one is not.)

u/Because_Science_Bro · 1 pointr/keto

I use a Zojirushi mug that i got for $20 off of Amazon. It's leak proof so you can toss it in your bag & it keeps it piping hot all day.

u/WannabeTraveler87 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Ive had been using this CamelBak Insulated Mug for a couple of years now for my coffee, going strong so far.


Also have a Zojirushi Insulated mug for water that I have had for half a year, seems like excellent quality too. If I had to redo the zojirushi, I would definitely get a bigger one than a 16oz.

u/Frankenstooge · 1 pointr/motorcycles

You can go big with a Stanley vacuum bottle, or go smaller with Zojirushi SM-KHE48BA Stainless Steel Mug

Neither will leak.

u/Formidable604 · 1 pointr/bikecommuting

I use one of these. It has a lock on it, plus it's just one button to open it all the way. Completely leak proof and fits into a bottle cage easily. It's a bit slimmer than the cage, so it does rattle a tiny bit, but at least the paint doesn't scrape off.

u/JeffIpsaLoquitor · 1 pointr/homemaking

Wifi password on the table; even better, configure their devices when they walk in the door.

Buy a couple of these mugs and fill with cold water and leave them for them. They're great gifts and the water or liquid stays cold forever.

u/unix04 · 1 pointr/Coffee

What size? I have a Zojirushi thermos that keeps my coffee hot for a long time. My coffee doesn't last more than 4 hours, but it stayed pretty close to original temps for those 4 hours. It holds about 16oz. For larger sizes though, you might want to consider a Thermos brand as the Zoji's get pretty expensive.

Here is the one I got:

I paid under $25 at the time. You could track the prices and wait till it drops again. Again, this is if your batches are 16oz or less. They also have a cheaper 12oz version too if that suits you better.

u/imaplatypuswithwings · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

Brace yourself, I've got a few winter items for you.

My fiance loves this jacket, and he's traveled to several different places with it. Keeps him nice and cozy.

Not sure how you feel about boots, but these winter boots seem to be a reasonable price and have fantastic reviews.

Fiance got this hat when he was in the air force and loves it.

Now for a personal recommendation, I can't have regular chocolate so I tried this white hot chocolate, and OH MY GOD. It is heaven in your mouth.

How about an awesome mug for that amazing drink? Here's one an old coworker swore by.

Lastly, my dad got me the most amazing heated blanket a few years back. I still use it all the time.

u/MikhailGorbachef · 1 pointr/Coffee

Zojirushi mugs are a little more slender than most so they should fit in any cupholder. Definitely don't leak and will keep things hot/cold for a crazy long time.

u/chumpybumpy · 1 pointr/battlestations

I got that water bottle from here. It's amazing. Water stays cold or hot for days. Literally. It's one of those vacuum insulated bottles. I love it!

u/WaylonWillie · 1 pointr/Coffee

more info for your rabbit hole; i believe this one has a slightly wider mouth than the M-SA60-BA, if that matters to you. (i don't drink from it, so it doesn't matter to me. still it is a nice looking design

u/newtolou · 1 pointr/bicycling

My Zojirushi seals up nicely and will still burn my tongue after lunch. The locking lid is great.

u/aideya · 1 pointr/tea

> Now what you're doing is similar to what's called grandpa style brewing, which is basically filling up a mug with leaves and just constantly adding water until you've had enough

Oh nono that's not what I'm doing. I'm using an infuser and steeping the amount of time they say and then discarding the leaves after. The tea I've made then gets put in a long term thermos so I can drink it throughout my day without having to reheat or drink fast (I like really hot liquids but slow sips throughout the day and that mug will keep it hot the entire day).

It does taste good to me, but I don't want to waste!

u/theboneofgood · 1 pointr/tea

These thermoses are amazing! I personally have this one (though I just ordered the 20 ounce for work and will bring the 16 home). I just go ahead and fill mine with steeped tea, but should work well for your (OP) needs too. It can definitely keep liquids piping hot for hours at a time, even with regular opening.

u/Bumblescrew · 1 pointr/waterniggas

Is there an ice ball mold that will fit my Zojirushi bottle?

I'd love to do this.

u/poopybunghole69 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

Zojirushi SM-SA60-BA Stainless Steel Mug, 20-Ounce, Black

u/EnigmaScientist · 1 pointr/tea

This Zojirushi 20oz black thermos

I heard that it was amazing for retaining heat and also keeping drinks cool. Theres an identical 16oz version so I’m kinda on the fence as I’ve never used a thermos before.

u/Flagship2 · 1 pointr/Coffee

I actually recommend this zojirushi over the one on sale because despite it being more expensive and even more phallic shaped, the lid fully opens when you press the release button. OP's thermos has a sticky latch, that while still works, is slightly annoying.

u/MikeTheBlueCow · 1 pointr/Coffee

I had mentioned the Osaka which is a metal pour over. Now you just need a metal or plastic carafe and cup option. You could try just brewing straight into a Zojirushi or some other vacuum insulated thermos (hydro flask, kleen kanteen, etc.) that the pour over device would sit on. If you want just a filter instead of an all in one device like the Osaka I linked, they also have that Also there are tons of metal mugs as well.

u/jaemian · 1 pointr/Outlier

Looks like it's a Zojirushi bottle with the Outlier sticker on it. I have the exact same black bottle infront of me right now.

u/tallnproud · 1 pointr/Coffee

Have you considered the Zojirushi that has a non stick coating on the inside? (Zojirushi SM-SA60-BA Stainless Steel Mug, 20-Ounce, Black

Haven't noticed any weird flavors in the time I've used it.

Good taste. I think you would like English Cadbury milk chocolate and (Yes, I'm cheating.) a Zojirushi thermos. I had the Contigo on my list but my research said that this is much better.

And I don't think we've met! Hi, I'm 82634 - nice to meet you! How'd you find us?

u/GTR128 · 1 pointr/Coffee

Which mug did you get? The one I have the see the most on here is this one.

u/LittleHelperRobot · 1 pointr/Coffee
u/WhyDoIAlwaysGet666 · 1 pointr/BuyItForLife

I've never heard of those mugs or bottles so I'm not familiar with them . . . But I recently just bought a Zojirushi mug that is 20 oz and I'm in love with it.

I've been able to put hot water in it before I leave for school (usually at 7am) and I have pulled it out still hot at 5pm for tea.

I have also left coffee in there with that time frame and was still able to enjoy a hot cup at 5pm until I left for home around 8pm.

It's also really cool because I've been able to lay it flat in my backpack on top of my books, laptop and binders and it doesn't leak at all. Which I was really paranoid about but after trying it out like that a few times I see now I have nothing to worry about.

In fact I've kind of gotten into the habit of showing it off by having my friends try to unlock it and test it's heat insulation.

Then I have them try to open it while the little mechanisn that allows you to lock the button that opens the mug's lid is locked. They can't so we undo the lock and it comes off pretty gently.

I usually tell them to hold it, and ask if they can feel any heat. Sometimes there's a bit of warmth but nothing that compares to what's inside. Then I take the entire lid off and tell them to hold their hand over it, and their usually surprised by the amount of steam coming off of it.

If you look at their reviews on Amazon you'll also see I'm not the only one who was impressed by it.

u/xthecharacter · 1 pointr/personalfinance

I think the difference between a drip coffeemaker and an aeropress or pour over is personal preference. The coffeemaker will generally make more coffee at once and takes longer to do so, and takes a lot more time and effort to clean. The aeropress makes 1 (or maybe 2) cups of coffee at once and requires that the drinker makes the cups manually, right before they drink them, but is very easy to clean and brews the coffee very quickly.

I do agree that a mug like this one is a great investment!

u/shredsofmetal · 1 pointr/tea

I have a Contigo Autoseal Tumbler and absolutely love it. It's super easy to clean and keeps my tea hot for a few hours (yes, hot).

As for a kettle, get him a variable temperature kettle so that he can adjust the temperature based on his tea preference. I have this Cuisinart kettle. I've had it for 4 years and still works great.

u/Getreadytogrumble · 1 pointr/xxketo

I was wrong, they're only $13! I've got a 16oz one, but I might splurge and get a bigger one too.

u/unipole · 1 pointr/intj

My buddy just got one of these Thermos units which is damn close

u/slakwhere · 1 pointr/Coffee

i had the old Contigo and just ordered the new version with the easier to clean lid since the old one started to taste a little odd. hoping being able to clean the lid will make a difference, otherwise i'm just going to swap to a stainless mug with a silicone lid.

u/parker4s · 0 pointsr/Coffee

The Zojirushi travel mug is very popular

One thing I would consider is how long you want your coffee to stay hot, some of the better mugs almost hold coffee too hot for hours. I usually have to drop an ice cube in my coffee, or leave it open for 30 minutes.

u/mrshowtime3 · 0 pointsr/Coffee
u/Andrewr05 · 0 pointsr/gaming

The worst thing that I have done is swap some barcode stickers around.

I got this (the store was selling it for the full retail price of like 20 something dollars) for like $8 because I swapped a no-name brand water bottle UPC on the bottom of the thermos.

Take that as you wish...

Home mug: Pretty much anything.

u/In_Odd_We_Trust · -2 pointsr/ottawa

Or you could get a really good coffee mug, like this one, brew your own cup at home for +/- 25 cents per cup and avoid contributing to pollution (car emissions + plastic & paper for the cup + receipt) as well as wasting 10 minutes in line or at the drive-thru. If brewing a pot is too much, get one of these.
