best travel mugs
I reviewed five YouTube videos discussing various travel mugs and their features. There was some consensus on popular travel mugs, such as the Zojirushi and Hydro Flask, while other options were unique to specific sources. The videos covered mugs made from various materials, including stainless steel, ceramic, and plastic. Overall, I am fairly confident in the recommendations provided, but individual preferences may vary greatly depending on the specific needs and requirements of the user.

"The Best Travel Mug for 2022 - YouTube"
- The Zojirushi SM-WA is recommended as the best travel mug for 2022 by the video author.
- The author learned that Zojirushi released a new model, the SM-WA. The key difference is that they model looks sleeker than the older model and has a single piece stopper.
- The older models had several pieces you had to take apart each time you wanted to clean it, making it harder to clean and easier to lose pieces.
- The video author purchased the Zojirushi SM-WA48 for $31 and recommends it as a good size for most people.
- It might be difficult to find the model in the US at that price, but you can purchase it from their official website for $55.
- The model is very good at keeping the temperature and is suitable for holding coffee, tea, or cold water.
- The model has a locking mechanism to prevent spills and leaks.
- The model has a gasket that seals it tight to keep the temperature.
- The gasket is one single piece on the SM-WA model, which makes it easier to clean and to avoid losing any parts.
- The model looks a little bit more sleek compared to the earlier model, the SM-SA, from the author’s memory, but there are not too many differences.
- The author would not recommend upgrading if you have an older model, as the similarities are quite a few.
- The model can keep ice from an iced americano for more than a single day.
- The video author uses the model for iced americano but claims that it is suitable for keeping the temperature of any drink, hot or cold.
- The video author does not recommend throwing the model in the dishwasher, but it can be hand washed.
- The model has a piece that still comes off, which allows you to clean under it.
- The video author believes that the Wirecutter’s information is outdated and that this is the best version of the Zojirushi thermos they have found.
- The video author lost their previous model, the SM-SC, in 2021 and decided to purchase the newer model SM-WA.
- The SM-WA model costs $55 on the official Zojirushi website.
