Best Insulated Tumblers iMore 2020

Taking your morning cup of java with you to the office when you get a late start or your favorite tea to your early morning exam always seems like a good idea, but plenty of travel mugs and tumblers are terrible at keeping your hot drinks hot and your cool drinks cold. Quality insulated tumblers are excellent at keeping your drinks at the optimal temperature. Here are the six best-insulated tumblers you can buy!

The best tumbler for the job

There are tons of knock-off tumblers around, but a reputable manufacturer will make a great vacuum seal that can insulate your drink and maintain the temperature you like for hours. Finding the right tumbler for what you're drinking is the best way to enjoy your beverages. If you're drinking coffee at the office, you'll want to make sure you don't deluge your keyboard, so the Contigo AUTOSEAL is a reliable choice. The Zojirushi Mug has a locking lid and can keep drinks at temperature for an insanely long time, but beware drips from the mouthpiece when you take your first few sips.

The best of the bunch is the YETI rambler, not just because it performs well, but because it is so versatile and friendly to use. It comes in a ton of colors with plenty of accessory lids, handles, and accouterments available. The magnetic lid is easy to clean, and the wide mouth makes it great for gulping cold drinks or slamming your morning pick-me-up. There's a reason it's so often duplicated; it's simply great.

For special occasions, skip the glassware or the plastic cups and go for an insulated tumbler instead. The Hydro Flask wine tumbler holds a glass of rosé at the perfect chill or keeps red from getting too cold while you sip at the campfire. If brews are your thing, go for the Stanley Never Flat Stein. The classic beer hall design looks great, and the locking lid will keep beer fresh and secure.
