The Mighty Mug – The Ultimate Travel Mug
Every day I receive offers to promote products, kickstarter campaigns, and subscriptions on this blog. Honestly, a lot of times, I say no. I don’t want to waste your time, even if it means I get free stuff. When I heard from one of the representatives of Mighty Mug, I was super excited, because they actually have products that make traveling better. They were kind enough to send me my very own Mighty Mug so I could test it and write a review for you. All of the opinions you read below are mine, and they in no way influenced these opinions. They also want to give you a chance to win your own Mighty Mug, and they ship internationally, so this giveaway is also open for all my global readers!
Not Your Ordinary Travel Mug
The market is saturated with choices for your hot beverage travel, but the Mighty Mug is different. It has patented technology that makes it impossible to knock over. The instructions say that if a surface is curved, or it is textured, then the Mighty Mug won’t work. I found that to be accurate information. So, it is very likely that it wouldn’t work on the inside of your car. However, if you are like me, you don’t care about that because that is what your car cup holders are for. This mug does make my travel routine a lot easier. Let me share with you what a typical travel day set up would be for me.
Everyone is dressed, and taking turns in the bathroom. I have just started to pack everything we will need for the day, and have set everything I haven’t packed on the dining room table. Now that I am finished tying shoes, I can finally make my coffee. I drink coffee almost every day, and in fact I also count it as my breakfast, and I want it hot, not luke warm (yuck). So I make my coffee, in whatever 5 minutes I can squeeze into our travel prep, and put it in my travel mug. Then I place the mug on the dining room table next to my purse so I don’t forget it. Enter curious children. My three year old especially wants my coffee. I don’t understand why, but he likes it (and no, I don’t take sugar in my coffee). I was interested to see how my son would respond to the Mighty Mug. He couldn’t knock it sideways, and he couldn’t open it. Score one for the tired mommies out there! Before I would have to guard the table to keep him from opening my mug and spilling it, or even worse, drinking it!
Testing the Mighty Mug
This thing is ingenious. Even though you can’t knock it over accidentally, you can lift it easily if you just pull straight up from the table. I really appreciate the engineering that went into this product, because you can tell they thought about what would make the consumer happy. This product works so well, that they even include a warning that you should not punch it from the side.
I thought that was a ridiculous warning to include in the instructions, but I have to admit I was tempted to see just how strong of a force this travel mug could take. My husband was too, and I actually had to remind him that it said no punching on the instructions. I also filled the mug with hot coffee and screwed the lid on before shaking it violently upside down over my sink. Not a drop leaked. Several hours later, my coffee was still hot.
Although this is an amazing feat of engineering, one of the things I find the most impressive about this mug is the price. It is around the same price as many of the travel mugs you find at other places, but it won’t tip over. They also come in a large variety of colors (I got my favorite color, teal), and are now available in Stainless Steel as well. Plus they have options for non-coffee drinkers, including a straw option which I am tempted to order for our kids to use during smoothie time. The mugs, cups, and desk mugs range in price from $14.99 to $24.99.
