The cup works fine but I was disappointed after seeing all of the advertisements about the strength of its coatings to have my cup chip both inside and out in the first week with no clue as to how it happened… certainly didn’t hit it with a hammer as it is meant to be able to withstand.
Design of the cup is flawed. The outlet is poorly designed. It allows the hot content to burn the drinkers lips. Be great for cold drinks but not for hot. As a result, I don’t use it.
We have 4 of these now, 2 small & 2 big for those days when you need a little extra! Firstly they keep drinks hot & icy cold when you’re having a iced latte and they don’t leak unlike every other cup we’ve had over the years. Secondly (not important to everyone but you know, it’s the small things in life) they fit perfectly in our cars cup holders!! We found so many didn’t have smaller bases. This also makes them easy to hold. Highly recommend these as a household item.
I had previously bought a STTOKE cup and loved it so much I bought another one for me and some for friends. I love the ceramic outside but also that it is shatter proof. I dropped the cup on concrete and it survived - but it might be worth getting an extra lid or two because they are not as hardy as the cup. The cup also keeps coffee really hot. Baristas admire the cup. It's awesome.
For the price, I didn’t expect it leak when holding it or accidentally tip it. Also when washing i need to soak in boiled water to clean the coffee out of the lid. Only good thing is coffee stays hot but seriously annoyed it leaks when I’m walking and holding it.
