The stainless mugs from the SM-SHE series feature Zojirushi’s proprietary SlickSteel®. This type of interior finish means the use of electrolysis polishing method that turns the 18/8 stainless steel coating highly resistant to corrosion and stains. Like a non-stick coating, it is a durable and easy-to-clean interior making the mug very practical for everyday use.
The vacuum insulation technology used in these series work to keep the temperature of the beverage at a constant for hours by completely removing the air from in between the two layers of stainless steel that make up the walls of the mug. By doing so, a vacuum is created disabling any heat from travelling through air thus creating an advanced way of preserving heat. To strengthen this retention of temperatures, the insulated products feature a layer of copper or aluminum which help reflect the heat. The insulation of the body of product is aided by an airtight, insulated lid. The heat retention achieved through this technique helps keep the hot beverages still hot (rather than lukewarm) and cold beverages cool (rather than room temperature) for hours after filling when compared with products using either foam or double wall insulation.
The snug fitted flip-open lid of the mug is leak resistant and operates with a safety lock making drinking from the mug easy and prevents beverages from spilling. The flip-lids are also crafted to release and hold before they flip open to allow the condensation on the lid to fall back into the mug instead of splattering. The lid can completely disassemble to simplify a thorough cleaning.
All the surfaces that come into contact with the beverage, including the lid and 18/8 stainless steel interior are manufactured using BPA-free materials to assure safe use.
Tip: It is recommended to pre-heat or pre-chill the mug with hot water or ice to help them preserve the beverage’s temperatures longer.
