BPA-Free: Contigo AUTOSEAL Travel Mug


BPA Free is a new running Greenthinkers feature where we discuss BPA, link to BPA-related pieces in the news, and also discuss and review all the BPA-free products you can handle. Enjoy your new BPA-free life.

Contigo is a Chicago-based company that gets our obsession with all things coffee. They know we like our coffee either very hot or very cold (love that iced coffee in the summer). And the nice thing is, their products work as good as they look.

Case in point, the Contigo Stainless Steel AUTOSEAL Travel Mug. We’re no stranger to the travel mug but this one is one of the more unique ones out there. It really is impossible to spill and 100% leak-proof. How is this possible? Well, true to its name, the Autoseal automatically seals between sips. Push the button to drink, release the button to seal. But how well does it really work? Review after the jump.

Let’s get to the cold, hard facts. Our reviewers took the Stainless Steel AUTOSEAL Travel Mug on their daily commutes for months and had this verdict: this AUTOSEAL Technology really does work. None of our reviewers experienced any spillage when using the Auto-Seal Travel Mug.

Other highlights:

  • And true to their claims, this double-walled vacuum-insulated, stainless steel mug habitually kept beverages hot or cold for hours.

  • The contoured body makes this mug easy to hold and easy on the eyes.

  • Fits most standard car cupholders.

  • Constructed with a double wall and stainless steel inside and out for maximum performance.

So in the end was it as big of a hit as the above praise makes it seem? Well, yes and no. Yes in that it is now the preferred Greenthinker HQ travel mug - it will ride in the Greenthinker Prius and on the Greenthinker e-bike for as long as the AUTOSEAL holds out. However, to note, one reviewer was turned off by the lack of a lip - she found it hard to drink from it. We’ll post about her favourite (also from Contigo) later this week.
