Best travel mug

Yeti Rambler

  • Price: $$
  • Dishwasher-safe: yes, on the top rack
  • Volume: 10, 12, or 30 ounces (oz) (296, 355, or 887 milliliters [mL])

Offering just the right balance of form and function, the Yeti Rambler is perfect for taking your java on the go.

In addition to a sleek body that easily fits in most car cupholders, it has a magnetic slider lid that’s easy to open. Just keep in mind that the lid is not leak- or spill-proof.

It also doesn’t hurt that the double-wall vacuum insulation keeps drinks warm (or cold) for hours.

This popular mug comes in a variety of colors and sizes and is customizable, with the option to add a monogram or logo.

What our tester says

“I was gifted my Yeti Rambler Tumbler several years ago, and it’s still my go-to mug, regardless of whether I’m taking my coffee on the go or sipping it at home.

“As someone who drinks their coffee slowly, I love that the tumbler keeps my coffee nice and hot all morning long. I also appreciate that it fits in most cupholders, is easy to clean, and doesn’t have lingering odors.”

— Healthline Nutrition Market Editor Kelli McGrane, MS, RD

(P.S. This mug was also a top recommendation of two other Healthline editors!)

Best eco-friendly

KeepCup Brew Cork

  • Price: $$
  • Dishwasher-safe: no
  • Volume: 12 oz (355 mL) or 16 oz (473 mL)

If you’re looking for an eco-friendly option, the Brew Cork should be at the top of your list.

The mug is made of eco-friendly tempered glass and renewable, biodegradable cork. Plus, KeepCup is a Certified B Corporation and donates a percentage of sales to environmental causes.

The Brew Cork is great for bringing to your favorite coffee shop — another eco-friendly plus — because its standard sizes fit perfectly under most espresso machines and coffee makers.

The non-insulated mug won’t keep coffee warm for long, so you may need to reheat your coffee at least once if you tend to sip slowly.

Best luxury

Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug 2

  • Price: $$$
  • Dishwasher-safe: no
  • Volume: 10 oz (296 mL) or 14 oz (414 mL)

While it’s the priciest mug on our list, the Ember mug may be worth the cost if you’re tired of reheating your coffee throughout the morning.

The mug is battery-powered and can keep your coffee hot for 80 minutes, or you can set the mug on a charging coaster to keep your drink hot for hours.

The Ember mug works with an app that allows you to set the exact temperature you’d like your coffee to be held at, within the range of 120–145°F (49–63°C).

As a safety feature, the mug automatically enters sleep mode when it’s empty.

Best for keeping coffee hot

Yeti Rambler Mug

  • Price: $$
  • Dishwasher-safe: yes
  • Volume: 10 oz (296 mL), 14 oz (414 mL), 24 oz (710 mL)

For a low tech option to keep your coffee hot (or cold) for hours, we recommend the Yeti Rambler Mug.

A cozier alternative to the Rambler Tumbler, the mug features an easy-to-hold grip and double-wall vacuum insulation.

It comes in several colors and sizes, including a large 24-oz (710-mL) size for serious coffee drinkers.

Plus, its wide mouth makes it versatile — it also works well as a bowl for oatmeal, soups, and stews.

What our tester says

“I don’t own one of these mugs myself. However, I used to eye one in the coffee shop I frequented daily for years, and I’ve gifted this mug to other people. This is one of those mugs that I’ve seen ‘fought’ over in a household, so if you’re gifting, it may be best given in pairs.”

— Healthline Editor Candice Abellon

Best ceramic-coated

W&P Porter Insulated Tumbler

  • Price: $$
  • Dishwasher-safe: yes
  • Volume: 20 oz (592 mL)

This best-of-both-worlds mug has the feel of ceramic with the heat retention of a metal tumbler.

Thanks to the ceramic coating, your coffee never touches the metal and there’s no metallic aftertaste. Ceramic mugs are also great for preventing lingering odors and tastes.

The tumbler also features a splash-resistant lid and a narrow shape that fits most cupholders. Plus, it comes in a wide variety of colors and patterns to suit most tastes.

Just keep in mind that because it contains metal, the tumbler can’t be placed in the microwave.

Best transparent

Bodum Bistro Coffee Mug

  • Price: $$–$$$
  • Dishwasher-safe: yes
  • Volume: 10 oz (296 mL) or 15 oz (445 mL)

For Instagram-worthy photos — or just a really pretty drinking experience — these transparent glass mugs provide the perfect window to watch milk swirl into coffee or to enjoy the layered look of your latte or cappuccino.

The Bodum Bistro Coffee Mug features double-wall insulation to keep the outside of the mug cool to the touch while your beverage stays warm inside. The heat-resistant glass is even safe for the microwave.

What our tester says

“We have an espresso maker, and I love using these transparent mugs because I can see the espresso and crema layers when I pull a perfect espresso shot. Watching the milk swirl into the shot of coffee is a favorite morning ritual.

“Plus, I love that the mug does not get hot to the touch, but the coffee stays warm.”

Best affordable

Threshold 15oz Porcelain Coffee Mug

  • Price: $
  • Dishwasher-safe: yes
  • Volume: 15 oz (445 mL)

These everyday mugs from Target feature a clean design, easy-to-grip handles, and a nice price tag — approximately $5 each.

They are also dishwasher- and microwave-safe, so we’re confident that they’ll become a staple in your kitchen.

These sleek, white mugs match virtually any decor. However, their appearance is also a potential downside, as they are a bit bland.

Best handmade

East Fork Ceramic Mug

  • Price: $$
  • Dishwasher-safe: yes
  • Volume: 12 oz (355 mL) or 16 oz (473 mL)

If you prefer a special, handmade mug for your morning coffee, this one fits the bill — just keep in mind that it’s not cheap.

This sturdy ceramic mug is handcrafted by artisans in North Carolina. It’s dishwasher-safe, microwave-safe, and available in assorted earth-tone colors. The materials are guaranteed lead-free.

Best for French press coffee

ESPRO P1 Travel Coffee Press

  • Price: $$
  • Dishwasher-safe: yes, top rack
  • Volume: 12 oz (355 mL)

If you’re a fan of French press-style coffee, this is the mug for you. It’s a French press and a travel coffee mug in one!

Simply brew your coffee right in the mug for about 4 minutes and then press the filter to stop extraction — no need to find a place for your coffee grounds or worry about your coffee getting too bitter.

The mug has a reusable micro-filter to keep your beverage free from coffee grinds or grit.

Plus, thanks to the vacuum insulation, your coffee will stay hot for hours.

Best for pet parents

Fringe Studio PetShop Stoneware Mug

  • Price: $
  • Dishwasher-safe: yes
  • Volume: 14 oz (414 mL)

Cat and dog parents, this is the mug for you. Designed with cute expressions and visuals that honor our furry friends, these mugs will bring a smile to your face every time you take a sip.

The mugs come in a variety of fun designs and are safe to use in the dishwasher and microwave.

This mug is not designed for travel but is great for curling up on the couch with Whiskers or Rover.

What our tester says

“I love these mugs. They’re so cute, with tons of fun designs. They’re also a really nice size, and they have a good weight to them as well.

“I received this mug as a gift from a friend, and it’s become one of my favorites. I drink coffee in the morning and tea at night, and it’s perfect for both beverages. It’s also microwave-safe — a plus if you reheat your coffee a million times like I do — and dishwasher-safe.”

— Healthline Senior Editor Chelsea Logan

Best unique

Mushroom Lidded Mug

  • Price: $
  • Dishwasher-safe: yes
  • Volume: 10 oz (296 mL)

Calling all fans of “Fantastic Fungi” — these adorable lidded mugs are perfect as a gift or for adding a whimsical touch to your coffee mug collection.

The mugs come in four colors and are dishwasher- and microwave-safe. Plus, the cozy mushroom cap lid helps keep your coffee warm longer.

What our tester says

“I love this cute little mushroom mug. It brightens my day just sitting on my kitchen counter next to my tea kettle, and the little mushroom lid helps to keep my drinks warm longer. I love that it comes in different colors so you can collect them all in a set but still have variety.”

— Healthline Editor Crystal Hoshaw
