5.0 out of 5 starsSuperb Heat Retention Zojirushi SM-SD60-BC
Reviewed in Australia on 19 August 2019
A great product and highly recommend! It has a easy to use sipper with a small air hole to ensure that your favourite beverage continues to flow smoothly out of the flask. Opening the lid is as simple as clicking the open button (minimal force required) and the lid will flick open and the lid springs ensure that the lid remains back so that your nose/face doesn't touch the lid.
What I love about it is that the lid can be completely disassembled and you can wash everything easily. The locking mechanism is easy to operate with one hand and the lid (to screw on to the flask) is also very secure and requires no/very little tightening pressure when screwing it back on.
There are a number of colours to choose from but I went the safe option of Black to ensure fingerprints and minor scratches are hidden. The Silky Black colour does have a slight reflective gloss but is not something I was worried about and overall doesn't scream attention if holding this in public or placed on a desk (eg. Work).
I have dropped this a few times from off a table (1 meter from the ground) and no real visual surface scratches but your results may vary.
The Zojirushi SM-SD60-BC is not widely available in my region (Australia) and generally don't have an authorised reseller making e-marketplaces like Amazon.com.au and others the only other option to get this item into the country. Free shipping is only available from Amazon US if the total purchased item is over $49 (with Prime membership). So if you are not in a hurry just wait for Amazon Prime Sale days where US shipping is generally waived and free (when Amazon US fulfills the order) otherwise expect to pay nearly half the cost of the product on shipping fees.
3 stars, mainly due to the fact that the gold on mine strips really easily compared to my black or red, easily cleaned, stays hot for 2 days and chilled, and is very good when compared to established brand names like Tiger.
Positives: - actually keeps cold drinks cold (i put ice cubes in it and it will still be ice cubes after more than 24 hours) - actually keeps hot drinks hot (not that my coffee lasts long but temp stays consistent the entire use) - easy to clean (detachable parts that come in contact with your mouth) - extra lock (to prevent accidental spillage in bag)
Negatives: - doesn't come in any bigger sizes like 1L,2L or 3L (max is 600mls) - pricey (but worth it!)
Ordered many of these to offer as Christmas gift to our staff. Box comes with a big "WARNING - Cancer and Reproductive Harm" sticker on it. No way we can offer these as gifts… Had to return them all :( Bottle is really beautiful. The company should stop lining the inside of the bottle. For those wondering: if you try to peel the sticker off, it rips the box.
These mugs WILL keep your coffee piping hot for hours. The mugs themselves are super lightweight, but the vacuum sealing process they use is second to none. I was skeptical when I received it, but I am a true believer now. The lid flips open to drink, but be aware that you will have the lid in your face every time you take a sip - in my mind, an acceptable trade-off in order to have this good of a mug. The lid disassembles for cleaning: the sip spout pops out of the lid, and the rubber seal comes off too. You have to try it to believe how perfect this mug is.
Esta taza es una excelente opción cuando se desee gastar un poco más con beneficios adicionales que no creías necesarios. El seguro para la tapa evita accidentes que son comunes con otras tazas, la apertura de la tapa es fácil y permite tomar mejor la bebida y disfrutando su aroma por el tipo de boquilla. No hay que estar apretando un botón todo el tiempo para poder tomar algo. La limpieza de esta taza junto con su tapa es mucho más fácil que las tazas/termos Contigo, que por su mecanismo hace complicada la limpieza. El tamaño es adecuado para que quepa dentro de los portavasos más ajustados en varios carros y de mochilas/portafolios.
Todas las recomendaciones tanto en amazon como las que recibí en forma personal son reales. Le cabe casi el medio litro, no se tira, cierra súper bien incluso si lo traes en la bolsa y se voltea no derrama el contenido y el café (si lo usas para eso) dura más de 6 horas caliente. El color igual al de la foto.
