For the latter half of this week, I’ve been making my own coffee and bringing it to work in the Oxo Good Grips LiquiSeal Travel Mug, a wonderful and affordable thermos that has a neat quick-release button at the top to prevent your beverage from spilling. The button allows you to seal the contents of the thermos quickly without having to worry about whether or not your lid is screwed on tightly (hopefully it is though). Once the button is pushed, you can literally tip the Oxo mug over and nothing will drip.

On top of that nice little feature is the fact that it works well as a thermos. It kept my coffee hot for several hours. I’ve read reviews saying that this thermos was hard to clean, but if you follow the instructions that come with it, you’ll find that cleaning this and maintaining it is as simple as ever (so simple that I don’t know how somebody can even get it wrong). The Oxo travel mug is hassle-free and only $20 on Amazon.com and it comes in a variety of colors. Buy one and pretty soon you’ll be saving a good amount on coffee or tea.
