High-Polished Stainless Steel & Ceramic Tumbler, 12 fl oz
Perfect, not only is it beautiful but it's a nice, sturdy tumbler that keeps my coffee & hands warm.

Doesn't hold heat
I have several Starbucks tumblers and this one is, by far, the worst. It doesn't hold heat at all. I think this is largely in part because the lid doesn't close all the way. The lid is designed in such a way that the spout is always exposed. This results in all hot beverages cooling within a few minutes. I end up with cold (not lukewarm, not hot) coffee in less than 15 minutes.
This is a monetary waste for me, especially when taking my tumbler into my local Starbucks store for use when purchasing hot beverages. I live in Texas, so I would suspect customers who experience much colder temperatures would have a colder cup of coffee much faster.
If you like your hot coffee to stay warm at all, do NOT purchase this tumbler.

I love my tumbler, I have had it for a year. The lid doesn't really close. I don't think its hot to hold. It is warm but not hot.

This is an attractive tumbler to have sitting on your desk. I chose it for the ceramic interior since I find coffee from a stainless steel tumbler gets a strange taste that I don't care for, yet I love the look stainless steel gives. My biggest complaints are as follows: the materials do not control temperature, so it's warm/hot to the touch with a freshly brewed cup. The stainless portion, while beautiful, is a bit slippery; this is combatted by the black plastic "ring" that separates the stainless & ceramic portions. The lid has an always-open spout, which cools your beverage quickly. The mug (obviously) is not microwave safe. Now for the pros: oddly, I actually kind of like the slippery feel, since I know it will stop at that ring. The warmth on the mug makes me like holding it, once it's a reasonable temp. The lid is easy to put on evenly & take off, no screwing involved. Flavor is not compromised by the ceramic interior. All in all, I'm satisfied with this purchase.

High Polished Stainless Steel and Ceramic Tumbler
I LOOOVE this mug. I love the stainless steel which keeps it very hot and I like my coffee and teas VERY, VERY hot. I love drinking from the ceramic insert instead plastic which is what is on most travel mugs. Yes, the stainless steel gets extremely hot and is impossible at times to hold. My recommendation to Starbucks is PLEASE make this exact same mug with a handle attached and that would make it just perfect. I am purchasing another one because the one I have got knocked over on my kitchen table and the ceramic broke. I do realize ceramic is fragile but I am willing to try it again just because of the feel of drinking from the ceramic surpasses all other mugs I have had in the past.
