Best price: 3.00 (Sainsburys)
Capacity: 400ml
Diameter of base: 65mm

For: Cheap as chips; simple design
Against: Not watertight
**Overall::**

Performance:

The cup did an average job of keeping the drink hot the temperature inside was 49C after a couple of hours. The TU isnt designed to be watertight, but it doesnt 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.

Buying:

Its hard to argue with the 3 pricetag but the cup is only available in store not online.

Quality:

Felt surprisingly classy given the budget price. The brushed metal casing should resist scratching well.

Special features:

Not a lot here but it is just three pounds.
