I remember I once drank my coffee from my Thermos after about 6-8 hours and it was disgusting. But that could have been probably because it had milk in it. I should repeat this experiment with black coffee and see how it tastes.gunsmokez wrote: ↑Dec 5th, 2017 4:04 am@Thrasher
Nope, coffee does not taste any difference to me. I do not have the ability to go and buy coffee anytime i wish. After 8 hours still very hot, and no odd taste. But, I do take it apart every night and wash it and air dry for next day to use. Used for the last 2 years and still going. 16oz with stainless steel.

black coffee holds up better as does tea.

My Tiger Thermos has plastic parts inside like the Zojirushi. The plastic is made for hot liquids. I put boiling hot water in there everyday from work in my thermos and its still good as day 1. Plastic still going strong.

You might also burn yourself more quickly if it wasn't some sort of plastic. There needs to be some sort of coating for drinking over metallic materials.

My experience is similar now that I have this item and also a contigo and thermos containerswhere I bring these to work and also on fishing trips . After 6 hours or so , since my coffee has milk and sugar, the taste definitely change no matter which coontainer I use, I think it is the milk going bad

It is not about good or lasting. When plastic hit boiling point, it will release chemical which is not good for health

What's wrong with the SM-SA? Don't they both have the same coating?

Flip it open more. Mine does.Slawek wrote: ↑Dec 5th, 2017 11:06 amI got the slick steel version last night and I have an observation to share. The lid flips up and the metal clip part stays attached to the body, which hits your chin when you take a drink. Also I'm not used to drinking from a mug with a lid attached so you get a wet nose every time you take a drink because the rubber stopper is right there. Pretty annoying I must say but I understand the design is needed to prevent leaks.

Looked around at quite a bit reviews, don't think anyone has had any issues with the coatings dissolving(the outside paint on the other hand...), probably the same good quality as the coating they put on their rice cooker inside bowls, that I use 4-5 times a week and that boils the rice really hot and I scrub it in the sink after and still looks brand new 6-7 years later.
