Travel cup test - 5th Sainsbury’s TU Travel Mug
Diameter of base: 65mm
For: Cheap as chips; simple design
Against: Not watertight
The cup did an average job of keeping the drink hot – the temperature inside was 49C after a couple of hours. The TU isn’t designed to be watertight, but it doesn’t drip anywhere near as quickly as some other cups when knocked over.
Ease of operation:
Its simple design is easy to pick up and drink from – simply twist the centre of the lid to open the drinking hole and take a sip. The rubberised grip around the centre of the cup makes this easier.
It’s hard to argue with the £3 pricetag – but the cup is only available in store – not online.
Felt surprisingly classy given the budget price. The brushed metal casing should resist scratching well.
Not a lot here – but it is just three pounds.
