Starbucks® Stainless Steel Desktop Tumbler, 14 fl oz
It WAS a great cup until...
Don't get me wrong. This is a great cup. I couldn't be happier with it until the other day.
I bought this cup just before Christmas '12 as a treat to myself since someone swiped my travel tumbler.
It can keep coffee hot for quite some time and that is why I liike it so much.
Well, this cup has never seen the inside of a dishwasher nor a microwave (since its metal) and is hand-washed and dried near daily. I like the taste of fresh coffee not a nasty seasoned cup. And to note, it has NEVER been dropped - it is near pristine.
Anyway, I was washing it when all of a sudden, the handle feels wierd and then falls away. Yep, the four weld points gave way to reveal rust. The spot welds were rusted through.
Needless to say, I was quite disappointed because now the cup is useless without the handle. It's size and slickness of the surface does not allow your to grip the cup.
Even though it is superior in it's ability to keep coffee hot, I won't be replacing it with another of the same.

didn't like tumbler
I bought the tumbler for work thinking the shape would keep it from accidentally tipping over and spilling, etc. It does that, but, I've spilled more coffee everywhere (car, floor, desk) than ever. I knew it didn't have a locking cap but did not think it would be such a mess. It also does not fit in cup holders in the car. I found I do not like drinking out of a metal container. Therefore, I am returning the tumbler.

I like the design of this stainless steel desktop tumbler with a press-on lid. It looks nice on the desk, and the lid keeps the coffee in and everything else out of your cup.

Not so hot!
I have several Starbucks mugs and like all of them. This one is a good size, compact but still holds a lot of coffee. I like the style, color, good handle, but it is single walled so it really doesn't keep coffee hot very long, so drink fast. If you want insulation, this one doesn't have it, but if you drink fast...everything else is good! A little disappointed in this one!
