One thing I like, and it might seam vain but I can see myself in the cup. This is great in case you have something on your face when your drinking lol. The mug is light weight and really keeps your drink hot.
I had made some hot cappuccino one morning and it was hot (like burning hot) for over an hour. Cleaning the cup was easy too. I have hand washed it as well as putting it in the dishwasher with no problem.
I like my Stainless steel coffee mug and will be using it a lot.
