Stainless & Ceramic Tumbler - Champagne, 12 fl oz
I love this ceramic tumbler. I've been using it about every other day for the last 3 months. It looks fantastic still.
I don't have problems with the lid popping off like other people have; it pretty much stays put. The lid has an opening so it's not spill proof but the whole assembly does a good job keeping my coffee warm.
I don't think that the tumbler seems to get too hot either although it can be a good hand warmer.
Another nice thing is it kinda has a foam bottom so it won't scratch your table surface or skid around.
One downside is the stainless steel doesn't allow you to microwave it. I don't put mine in the dishwasher either because I keep it at work and wash it by hand.
I recommend it!

I bought this travel mug six months ago. I have many ceramic mugs I bought from Starbucks back when they used to make many different styles. I really bought this one for the champagne color and wanted something that had stainless steel and ceramic. I have bought a couple of mugs that have color on the stainless steel and within a few times in the dishwasher it starts to peel off. I am happy to say that this mug has been in the dishwasher six times a week for about six months and looks like when I first bought it. The ceramic has not stained either. I don't have the problems with my lid that others seem to have. My lid stays put. I gave it four stars because the quality is great, however it does get hot to the touch (not too hot that you cant touch it) and I would like a lid that has an open and close latch instead of having the small hole to keep coffee hotter longer. I am glad Starbucks is still making quality products.

Poor lid design
1st use: a colleague caught the lip of the lid & over went my entire cup of fresh brew. 2nd use: I was sipping & the lid popped off. Entire contents went down my jacket. Now I just use the cup w/o lid-that way there are no illusions.

Best mug for coffee
I spent a while searching for the right travel mug because I had used several in the past that fell short of my expectations. I found this option and was sold right away. I had been torn about choosing stainless steel (for function of the mug) or ceramic/glass for a container (for coffee taste) and this is the best of both worlds. In practice, it works just as good as it appears to on paper. I'm extremely happy with it.
The cherry on top is the aesthetic design- it looks great! And I would've been happy with a bland looking mug that served the purposes mentioned above.

Quality with one flaw
I've been using this tumbler for a couple weeks and I am very happy with it. I sip my coffee and it keeps it warm for a reasonable amount of time - it's not a thermos, so have realistic expectations. The lid isn't leak-proof. It's really only there to help keep your coffee warm. The one drawback is that it gets pretty hot on the outside.
