These go on sale from time to time. Best thermos mug I've used (holds both cold and hot water for a very long time).

Funny, I also have a Zojirushi mug and Hydroflask and I'm the complete opposite. I don't find it difficult to clean at all. But more importantly I hate the Hydroflask unscrew lid. Makes it impossible to drink while driving and is a pain in the butt to unscrew/screw every time I want a drink. Also I find the Hydroflask loses the temperature 2-3x faster and after a few hours my drink is too cool for my liking. I think it's because the heat dissipates from the big plastic lid. I do like the Hydroflask colors better though.

I only buy Hydros for the paint lol. Their lids are their downfall. The cheapies at Walmart stay colder/hotter because you have more twists of the lid. Hydros are meant to open faster with fewer twists but they perform worse.I go bike riding with cold water in a hydro and its warm in a few hours during summer. Of course Hydros sports caps leak etc etc. But I still use the Hydros because they fit my bike holders and dont taste nasty like the plastic bottles

For the ones with steel internally, you can't afford to forget coffee in it. If you do that, it'll stain from inside. And the discoloration won't go away (tried removing with vinegar as well). .
Have you tried using dishwasher detergent (powdered or liquid)? That seems to work well for me.

Denture tablets also work well. I drop in a couple w/warm water and let soak before using a bottle brush.

You can also use the cleaners for coffee machines (Joe Glo espresso cleaner works well for me), but the Target denture tablets are cheaper Smilie

A friend of mine who lives in Japan just gifted me one of these a few weeks ago. Besides the small opening for the liquids, it keep coffee hot for an insanely long time. It's also very easy to clean imo. Well worth the money !

I bought 3 of these from Kohl's almost 3 years ago. Stainless steel interior. They work great and still keeping water hot. But recently I noticed the water has some white powder inside. Looking closely, the white plastic from the lid is slowly melting away =_= . Anyone experiencing that?

The newer Tiger vacuum bottles have a super smooth interior that you'll notice right away vs older models from Tiger and Zo that help prevent stains and odors from setting in the metal surface.

Is this comparable to the Rtic tumbler? I need something that'll keep my coffee hot so wasn't sure if I should go with the Rtic or this one.

My search for the perfect thermos ended when my lips touched the scorching hot coffee I brewed in the wee hours of the morning.

Ahhhh the burn, it feels so good.

I have two of these lava pipes to rotate a clean one in while the dirty one is being washed in the dish washer.

Yes, I place them in the dishwasher and have been doing it for years with no issues.

Highly recommend purchasing and taking the lid off to let your coffee cool off, even after 6 hours.

Can't speak to this thermos, but in terms of cleaning, we've found that the Puro Caff - Espresso Machine Cleaner does an AMAZING job at removing coffee stains from stainless steel. So much so that you almost wonder how it is possible. Puro has worked great where vinegar and citric acid failed before. Mix some of the powered with hot water, let it sit for half an hour or so and the stains are totally gone. Seriously recommend trying this stuff if you've got dingy coffee stained items (we use it on our coffee mugs too).

These are great. Amazon telling me I bought this in 2014 for $25 (can't believe it's that long lol). Still in great shape. I use it for both ice and hot coffee.

Only gripes (and they are small ones) is that it's a bit narrow for cup holders and I walk around with a coffee stain on my nose occasionally if I don't open the lid all the way (there are two "clicks" when opening the lid - make sure it opens fully yo the 2nd one when drinking from it).
I hear ya Pinocchio, I laugh cause I have a big nose and get goofed on all the time (Moskowitz as a last name doesn't help lol) but anyhow the same thing happens to me but all the time .Bottom line these are truly the best money can buy and being a wall street guy I like me coffee and need the stuff . best to ya Pinocchio

I have two of these in the same color (fourth zojirushi in all). Lately only this color has been on sale Frown.

One problem I have is that internal rubber seal is not that great. One of my mugs has a problem where, when drinking, a drop of the beverage will escape from under the cap. And inadvertently drop on my shirt. Since both of mine are the same color, I always have to take care to check which one has this issue. I use that one with a paper napkin wrapped around the mug. My 'good' one is starting to develop the same issue but I just have to remember to tighten the lid well enough. Not sure if I got a bad batch but something to look out for.

My older ones - one was a steel one and another was a non-stick one (both were different model numbers than the one here) never had this issue despite years of use.

Another thing I observed is that the non-stick one was easier to maintain (though I know some folks don't prefer non-stick). For the ones with steel internally, you can't afford to forget coffee in it. If you do that, it'll stain from inside. And the discoloration won't go away (tried removing with vinegar as well). Not a huge issue but something to keep in mind. The non-stick one doesn't have this same issue. Health concerns of non-stick aside, that's a difference potential buyers should be aware of. BTW, all mugs with internal stainless steel have this issue - not just zojirushi.

Of the two older ones - one was so badly discolored that I eventually threw it away. It was my fault. Didn't take care of it. Now I know better. The other one's cap fell to the bottom of the dishwasher and melted on the heating coil. Of the two new ones, one of them is discolored again but not bad enough to throw it away. Guess I didn't learn my lesson Smilie.

In any case, these mugs are miles ahead anything else in the market. I'm a customer for life. Just hoping the next ones I buy have a better seal.
Send the other one back ,they will send you a new one been there done it ,as 4 the idiot who put it in the dishwasher ...that will not work as they specifically tell u not to wash it that way .just say'in

My warning is this works really really well. To the point where nothing really cools in it even after hours. So... if you put scalding coffee or tea in it and expect it to be drinking in an hour... you will be in for a painful surprise.
