What does your ‘travel mug’ look like?

Some people use an ordinary mug, others like a BPA-free travel mug, and yet others like a stainless steel travel mug. I like to use my favorite stainless steel travel mug to take my precious morning coffee with me where ever I am going.

I absolutely love the Contigo AUTOSEAL ~ West Loop travel mug. I have tried many travel mugs over the year and I can honestly say this is the one I like the best! It is truly “one of a kind”.

Every other travel mug I’ve tried has sprouted a leak. The Contigo AUTOSEAL travel mug with its ‘patented autoseal’ spill-proof technology has never let me down.

I can throw it in any of my bags and never have to worry about having the items in my laptop backpack or lunch bag get wet. I run, hike and bike with it! This beautifully designed stainless steel travel mug keeps your cold items cold and your hot items hot!

Although, I generally use it for hot items – coffee, tea, hot chocolate, I have also used it as a water bottle for those days when I have forgotten its cousin the Contigo AUTOSEAL Cortland Water Bottle at work or at the gym.

Now you maybe wonder if I work for or get paid to promote the Contigo brand. Sadly, I do not, but I still have to ‘sing its praises’! Their quality brand travel mugs and water bottles rock!

In my opinion the Contigo AUTOSEAL ~ West Loop travel mug is ONE OF A KIND you must try out for yourself. But you do not have to take my word for it as they have been given an almost perfect rating of 4.8/5 on Amazon the last time I looked.

So why is the Contigo AUTOSEAL ~ West Loop travel mug an excellent buy?

The Contigo AUTOSEAL travel mug is unique. This amazing one of a kind travel mug is guaranteed to keep liquids hot for about 5 hours and cold for about 12 hours.

Yes, there are other stainless steel travel mugs that boast that they do not leak, however, I have not yet found or used one.

Let’s get started with my review of the One of a Kind Contigo AUTOSEAL ~ West Loop travel mug.


Stainless steel

Variety of colors

Fits most car cup holders

Available in convenient 2 pack

100% BPA – free

It may stain and will retain the smell of your tea or coffee. It helps to rinse each night after use.

The colored travel mugs finish will peel over time if you put them in the dishwasher

Please Note: Contigo makes another model with a ‘snap seal’. Don’t confuse the two when you go to purchase. Although I haven’t tried the other model, I have heard that it is not as user-friendly as this one and that it can leak a bit through the part that you push to drink from or the rim.

A few years ago a Coworker returned her ‘snap seal’ model and then had to wait for the Contigo AUTOSEAL model as it was out of stock – for a short time they were very hard to find.

Luckily, now Amazon has them back in stock.

My Final Thoughts…

I just can’t say enough how much I “Love it”! I take my Contigo AUTOSEAL travel mug on my daily commute to work every day. Mine fits nicely in my car cup holder and I love the anti-spill lock – you never have to worry about scalding yourself with coffee while your are driving! Just press, sip and drink!

The Contigo AUTOSEAL travel mug would make a great gift for the athlete, commuter, student in your life or simply a wonderful purchase for yourself.

It’s the best traveler mug I’ve ever owned. This is in my opinion an amazing find – It truly has a ‘One of a Kind’ – Seal that keeps your coffee hot or cold and inside the mug – and never in the bag. 

BONUS:  If you have children or grandchildren they will love having their own Contigo cup –  a Kid’s Sippy Cup – using their patented autoseal technology.

You can purchase one on Amazon with the following link – Contigo Kids 2 and 1 Snack Hero Kids Tumbler and Snack Cup – 13 oz – 2 pack

1. Make your espresso coffee and then pour it into your travel mug. Add the melted dark chocolate, and sprinkle of cinnamon.

2. Steam or heat your milk and then froth.

3. Add your frothed milk to your coffee in your travel mug.

  1. Hi there,
    Thanks for posting about the Contigo AUTOSEAL travel mug. I’m always worried about putting a mug in my work bag for fear that it will leak on my phone or other items in my work bag. If I do take a hot or cold drink to work with me I always feel like I need to put it in a plastic bag in case it leaks all over my stuff.
    I love that you have provided a recipe for Coffee Mocha. I will have to give it a try.
    I hope you have an excellent week ahead. Take good care!

    1. I can so relate to having to put my travel mug in a bag. It wasn’t until I found the Contigo AUTOSEA mug that I can now relax and not worry about leaks.
      I’m glad you like my recipe as it contains two of my favorites – coffee and chocolate. Makes for a great treat once in awhile.
      Enjoy your week,
