I used it half a dozen times. While the mug got warm, the beverage didn't stay hot enough to drink. Four out of the six times I put my drink in the microwave to heat it back up. This is what I had been doing before I received this item. The last two times I just dumped the contents because I was hoping this item would work. I made sure to use a flat bottom mug to be certain. It did not work for me.
I looked at a lot of warmers when my red Mickey Mouse coffee warmer stopped working after 3 years (I wish I would have just bought another one of those). The reviews on this one were good. Most said the liquid stayed “HOT”!!! Which is exactly what I was looking for. Well, as it turns out, I would not say anything stays HOT. Maybe lukewarm, at best. I guess I must like my coffee scalding hot if most reviewers are happy with the temperature this thing keeps.
The mug I have at work didn’t fit on the warmer. It was too big. Something to keep in mind if you have, say, Disney character mugs. Also, the on/off buttons are VERY sensitive. You can accidentally turn it on without realizing it.
All in all, this warmer is not for me. I wish I had returned this, but I threw the packaging away before giving it a try. Now it sits on my desk and never gets used. I have to chug my coffee/tea before it has a chance to cool off.
I am using a mug with a wide and perfectly flat bottom yet even on the highest setting this warmer is not able to keep the liquid in my mug warm. The very bottom of the mug is warm but the top of the mug is room temperature. This warmer doesn't add enough heat to overcome the convection loss from the mug. The lower-power settings are totally useless since even the highest setting doesn't do the job.
Original review: Easy to use, just push blue button once for low, again for medium, again for hot, again for off. Works great. The cord is long too which is nice. My only suggestion is that it should probably have a shutoff timer or cup sensor because you can leave it on and forget about it which is perhaps a fire hazard. I suggest keeping it away from papers for that reason.
Update: Early 2020: has gradually lost it's heating ability after a year and a few months. Just keeps things luke warm by now. Can't say I'm too surprised with the junky, disposable nature of most products today. So, now, NO I wouldn't recommend. I'm shopping for a replacement.
I bought this to replace a $4.99 desk mug warmer that lacks an auto-shutoff feature. What I've found is that, while it slows the cooling down of my coffee, this unit does not keep it remotely hot. That makes me question the purpose of the unit since, at 4 times the price, it doesn't heat nearly as well as my old, cheap version.
I really liked this coffee warmer but sadly the first one I bought in late May only lasted till mid September (less than 4 months). Was working the day before, turned it off and now it doesn't turn on. So in less then 4 months it was died. I am just hoping the one I purchased in early June is more reliable!
I had to replace my 5.00 candle warmer that I was using to keep my hot tea at a decent temperature. I bought a new one at Walmart, but it just didn't seem to be as hot, so I thought I would check this one out. It's about the same thing on the highest setting as the candle warmer was. I like my tea hot, but I don't want to keep putting it in the microwave to warm it up. I can't even imagine using it on the other two lower settings. I would not buy this product again.
Three little squiggles turn different colors depending on how many times you touch the on button, or the indicator button, and then it stays lit for a while after you turn it off so you can’t tell if you actually turned it off.
How hard would it have been to have one squiggle for low, two for medium and three for hot? And then none for off???
I like that it turns itself off after 4 hours but this isn’t worth the trouble. Back it goes.
