After one use per year, billions of disposable coffee cups end up in landfill. Switching to reusable coffee cups can greatly reduce this waste, but with so many products available, it can be difficult to determine which reusable cup is best for you. Here are 5 reasons why you should choose a stainless steel insulated coffee mug.
Steel is a great conductor of temperature, which is why many cooking pots and pans are made of steel. They are very good at absorbing heat from the cooker and transferring it to what you are cooking. To ensure that the steel retains its temperature, another layer of steel is added to prevent the internal temperature from moving to the outside of the cup and vice versa. This locks in the internal temperature. This process is called vacuum wall insulation. Only stainless steel coffee cups can have this insulation effect. Plastic and glass can be insulated in a similar way, but will not keep the liquid hot for long.
Food-grade stainless steel is used for commercial cooking and food preparation for several key reasons. Not only is it tough and durable, it is also very hygienic, very safe for food and will not affect the taste of food or drink. Some plastics and inferior steel types can alter the taste of your coffee or tea, so we recommend that you invest more in a quality stainless steel coffee cup.
Cheaper plastics are full of all sorts of 'stuff' from BPA and mixing them with hot liquids can make a great mixture of toxins. Something you probably don't want to drink. On top of that, frequently scrubbing and cleaning cheap plastic reusable cups can result in small amounts of plastic coming off and ending up in your drink! In short, avoid using cheap plastic reusable cups.
Steel is pretty strong stuff. Remember when Superman was known as the Man of Steel? Anyway, we digress. Stainless steel coffee mugs are very sturdy and durable, making them the perfect reusable mug for outdoor travel.
With its insulation and the extra durability of stainless steel, it's perfect for making sure the contents stay locked inside. It's amazing how much easier life becomes when you have a leak-proof coffee mug.
