I have been trying to find one myself. Are Thermos products still made in USA? They have some nice ones on their website.




ETA I can't find one. Even the Bubba Keg ones are made in China. Oh well. At least I have a good old. heavy ass, US made Stanley thermos bottle.

You'll find them right next to the US made Unicorns, Cameros, Chargers, and Dodge Rams.

I really don't think that any SSteel mugs are made in the USA anymore. Go plastic and get a Tervis tumbler with a handle and travel lid.

Not what you're asking about specifically, but Tervis tumblers are made in florida, double walled, can buy handles and spill-proof tops with a good lifetime warranty. we love ours.

Yep, mine was my grandfather's. It's probably at least 45 years old. He passed in 1976 and had it a while before that.

Plastic makes coffee taste bad.

I used em for years with shit coffee and it didn't matter.
Once I started making good stuff, I noticed how badly the plastic skunks it.

Now I have stainless mugs.

Problem is, they still have plastic caps and so I have to go around all topless and shit.

I don't give a damn if it's Chinese, Vietmanese, or Portugese, someone PLEASE make me a goddamn stainless cap!

I thought of that when I saw this thread but I wasn't going to post it because I don't think that mug is all it's cracked up to be.

$190, it only holds 24oz, the carry handle is extra and I don't think Aluminum is going to keep your beverage a desired temp for long.

I got an awesome insulated, spill-proof travel mug (I think it was Thermos brand) that was made in Japan, and they make good stuff. Check out http://www.baldmountaincoffee.com, that's where I got mine.

ETA: I don't see the one I ordered there now, I think it may be out of production. Try some other specialty coffee websites, though.

I bought a very similar one. I hate it. The mouth is way too big, it is impossible to drink out of without spilling. Espically if you are moving.

Maybe I am some kind of retard though. Your results may vary.......

No other mug on the planet keeps coffee warm like a Contigo. I don't care where it's made. Can't beat being able to turn the thing upside down w/o it leaking.

Yeah , but what does it hold ? 10 ounces ?
Even the big green china Stanley thermos' are STILL $35-$45 . . . wtf ?? I dont care if it's got a lifetime warranty , I'm sick of sending money to fucking commies.

I was looking for another thermos and ended up settling for a chi-com one .

My Big Greenie was manufactured in TN. It's been around awhile, at least 25 years, and has seen many a flightline.

Buy on of the chinese ones

Have a draftsman draw you a set of plans of it iaw ANSI 14.5

Find a local machineshop to fabricate it out 18-8 Stainless Steel (good luck finding a custom spin former - or affording a one off if you do)

Find an o ring or gasket
