Valentina Dudley. Mugs. September 20th , 2018.
Next you will want to consider how the lid attaches to the travel mug. Some lids have flexible rubber, or plastic gaskets around the edge. They slide into the top of the mug and are fairly secure. If you drop your mug one of these types of lids may come off. The most preferable lids are screw on. Those puppies won't go anywhere. It is rather difficult to find all stainless travel mugs with screw on lids, but if you look high and low you will probably find one.
Nearly all thermal mugs are made of plastic or stainless steel, although there are glass and ceramic thermal mugs available. For travel though, it's best to stick with the first two types. Plastic mugs are generally less expensive, but have some drawbacks. Plastic tends to retain the flavor of whatever you have in it, so if you use your coffee mug for a different beverage, it may give it a bit of a coffee taste. Stainless steel doesn't have this problem (at least if you clean your mug regularly!), so if you plan on using your thermal mug for more than one type of beverage, stainless steel is the way to go. Plastic is difficult to break, but overall isn't as durable as stainless steel, so a plastic mug may not last as long. Although usually a bit more expensive, stainless steel thermal mugs are generally best. One exception to this is if you tend to lose your mug. In this case, a cheaper plastic mug is probably the best choice!
Specialty mugs can be found in a number of places. Antique, novelty and second-hand stores offer mugs of every kind. Garage sales offered at homes and those that are put on by churches, community groups and organizations will often have specialty mugs. Don't forget county fairs, seasonal shows and shows for boats or motor homes. Even ads in newspapers will offer sets of mugs they have gathered in the past and want to sell. Specialty mugs that will fit in your car cup holder can be found at auto supplies, car, truck and motorcycle repair shops.
