Thermos Nissan Detailed Review

We take a very detailed and in many ways unique look at a wide sampling from the Thermos Nissan lineup of hot beverage containers and products.

Hey all. Just discovered this site, posting for the first time. I'm a serious coffee drinker, spoiled by my Italian family. Extremely picky about the morning brew. Hence the following question about thermal mugs.

I'm a writer who works at home or in coffee shops and have not needed a thermal coffee mug for years...until now. I'm about to begin a university program that will take me to chilly, rural Vermont for the next three Januaries (and two Junes). I've been advised to bring my own coffee, plenty of it, and the best insulated mug I can afford. The problem is, the best mugs, such as Nissan Thermos, all boast of being stainless steel "inside and out." I like the durability and insulation of stainless. But I don't like the way it makes the coffee taste. And I've found in the past that stainless carafes and mugs, over time, become impossible to clean. What I want is something with a glass liner like the plastic carafe I use at home, but less unwieldy and more durable for the road.

Does anyone know of a company that makes a mug or tumbler with a stainless shell and a glass-lined interior? Or a durable mug with some other kind of liner that doesn't impart the off taste of stainless or plastic but is still easy to clean? Thermos makes a beverage bottle with a glass liner, but they don't put the Nissan name on it and they sell it for eight bucks, so I'm suspicious about the durability and quality. Zojirushi bills their stainless mugs as having an "easy to clean" interior but I can't find any information about what that interior is made from. Perhaps someone out there who owns a Zojirushi can give me more info.

Any guidance would be appreciated...

Go to a lot of local coffee shops, one is destined to sell a porcelain/china travel mug.  I really want to get one, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

I actually know just about nothing about coffee and I bought this nissan thermos bottle knowing nothing of its construction or engineering.  I was so absolutely astounded at how well it worked that I went online to read about it and came across this article.  I'm floored by how good this bottle is - really sensational.

  I love the Nissan Thermos.  It really doesn't matter what kind either.  Nothing keeps coffee hotter than Nissan.  Thanks for the review

This is a fantastic review.  

I've been looking at the Nissan offerings for a bit now, but "here, there and everywhere" across the internet trying to compare notes from various sources.  This is a great consolidated review that has saved me a lot of time in my research.  

Now that it's year 2007, there might be a couple of things that have changed (maybe some new products), but this review is still a winner and sure helped me sort out my thoughts on the various tumblers and carafes I have been scouting.  

Thanks, Mark.

I have the leakproof mug with the big handle and the carabiner.  I really don't like it, because after it has sat for an hour or two, the only way I can get the top open is to use a pair of pliars (I stick the two handles into the two indentations on the top, and twist.  I don't have arthritis, and have a strong grip, but absolutely can't open it without a tool.  It needs a pressure relief valve which could be pushed, to eliminate the vacuum which is created as the contents cool, but which would otherwise preserve the absolute leakproof nature of the mug.  On trips I now use a GoodGrips tumbler from Bed, Bath, & Beyond, because I can open it with the push of a button - great at highway speeds.

I should have also mentioned that the GoodGrips tumbler is nowhere near as good at keeping coffee hot, although it does seem to be leakproof.

If anyone is looking for the TGS 1000 Carafe there are several Ebay Stores selling new ones for under $25.00. I just bought one for $20 from PERKYS COFFEE CO using the Make Offer option. Looking elsewhere on the net I see retailers still asking $34-$49.

If anyone who owns the 16oz briefcase/backpack bottle can see if an aeropress fits over it, I'm sure I'm not the only one curious to know...
