I just got one. It keeps coffee real hot for a LONG time. I'm impressed. The plastic mugs from Kum & Go or other stop and robs are not nearly as good.

The instructions say "no dishwasher". Anybody know what happens if you cycle them through the dishwasher? Inquiring minds want to know.

They're $8-$9 max. Try it and find out.

Can cause them to lose vacuum sealing.

somebody posted the same question here recently...seemed like someone had deliberately sent their through their restaurant washing machine daily for months with no noticeable effect.

Wait, you wash your coffee mug?

Just wash the damn thing by hand.

We tried this on a float in the Med...it wasn't pretty.
Link Posted: 2/16/2017 7:26:25 PM EDT
I was told that it could affect the vacuum seal, depending on the internal temp the dishwasher got to.  Obviously the soap and water itself is harmless.  It's all about the temp the seals/joints on the cup get to.

I knew a guy that did that once.

Dead.

They say it can hurt the seal and let the vacuum out.

I prefer to let my girlfriend get the vacuum out.

It gets clean?
Link Posted: 2/16/2017 7:59:06 PM EDT
Pfffffffffftttttttttttttttttt.  The dishwasher cleans my stainless Yeti and Ozark trail tumblers just fine.  And if she didn't, we would have fightin' words!





On a serious note, yes I run both of mine through the normal dishwasher weekly.  At least 50 times in the last 6-12 months. No problem.  Fake news that it looses vacuum.

I'm sure if you don't use heated drying it will be fine... it's just water and soap spraying around.

On the other hand, I bet if you use heated drying there's a chance you'll lose the vacuum.

Same.  I have two stainless ones that I rotate and they get washed in the dishwasher every use, bottom rack.  

The only one that I had any issues with was a powder coated one.  Not sure if it was due to the powder coat, or if it was just a defective cup.

It turns out clean?
Link Posted: 2/16/2017 8:07:57 PM EDT
The heat can cause the vacuum seal to break. Left an empty one in my truck over a few days in august and it busted the seal.

You saw the video of the guy who got fried trying to steal copper wire and he had a gaping hole in his side...the news was wrong, he had actually just crawled out of his house after running his Ozark SS Mug through the dishwasher...Bad...Very Bad!

You guys put coffee in yours????

Mine get clean when I put them in the dishwasher.

I didn't know I was supposed to hand wash them until my sister bought the whole family a bunch of RTIC tumblers and those said no dishwasher.

Ours go through the dishwasher regularly.   I make sure to keep the lid on the top rack.  I'm scared the lid, or more specifically the seal might distort or harden from the heat.  Maybe it won't but I keep in on top and haven't has issues.

How can you even tell if the vacuum seal is broken? 

Even if it is, I think they probably still insulate way better than a regular cup. I have one with a broken seal (used the base to hammer on something) I have been using for a few weeks, and even with the vacuum compromised, it still keeps ice way longer than a regular single wall cup. Since it still works well enough, I haven't bothered to trash it.

I suspect a lot of folks who run theirs in the DW have ruined the seal and just don't know it because the remaining insulating capacity is still pretty good.

Why does one even need a cup that can keep coffee hot for hours? I'm lucky if I have a cup that lasts 15 minutes before I need a refill.  And if, by sheer negligence on my part, I misplace a cup so long that the coffee goes cold, there is always a microwave, coffee pot, or Kwik-e--Mart nearby. If I know I'm going to be out and about long enough to need refills, I always have my trusty Stanley thermos.

The Arfcom wits never fail to deliver. Thanks for the laughs guys. I swear some guys on here should write sit-coms. The Arfcomers stuff would be way better than the shit on TV these days.

And for the record, I don't use the heated dry. Here in CO the humidity is so low you just open the door shake off any thing that pools water and in about an hour everything is bone dry. Due to medical issues I do use the "sani-rinse". I guess it's just real hot water.

Thanks again for all the replies and the funny shit.

Mine with a busted seal is very obvious. There is no insulation so its just like an aluminum can.

i  melted too much stuff in my first dishwasher so i don't use the heated dry though.

Why doesn't hot coffee ruin the seal if heat is the issue?

Because of the vacuum, the heat never gets to the seal.

I've powdercoated dozens of Yeti's, RTIC's, and the Walmart ones, never an issue.

They get up to 400*+ in the oven, the dishwasher shouldn't phase em

Just make sure the coffee you pour into the cup is hot enough to kill the germs from the day before.

Never need to wash it.

I have the Ozark 40oz,

I have dish washer it three times now with no ill effect.

We use the top rack and it's a bosch dishwasher with no heating element, so there's that.

I figure for twelve bucks,I can wreck a few a year and be ahead, but at least they'll be clean

Dishwasher?  You wash it?

You're supposed to drink liquor out of it at the end of the day, then it's automatically clean in the morning.
