As a dad of a toddler, you quickly realize that things you thought were inaccessible somehow get knocked over regularly. This includes my coffee mug. Juniper just wants to copy everything we do and that includes “drinking” (or at least holding) my coffee mug.
When I stumbled across the Mighty Mug I was intrigued by the claim that it is “the mug that won’t fall over”. So the skeptic in me ordered one assuming that I could prove them wrong. I figured there was some sort of sticky material on the base that would collect dust and become useless.
When the mug came in I unboxed it and immediately started playing. I was dumbfounded by the simplicity yet genius behind the design. The bottom does have a sticky rubber piece, but it acts as a suction cup that easily releases when lifted. When set down tho the cup is very difficult to knock over. I was hitting it pretty hard and it wasn’t falling (don’t read that as I gave it a right jab and it didn’t budge).
In my giddy excitement, I ran to show it to my wife and told her to try and knock it over. She gingerly pushed it and smiled, then she proceeded to push harder and was just as amazed as I was. I repeated this process around my office the next day pretending to knock over my coffee onto my co-workers keyboards. Everyone I showed loved the mug.
Mighty Mug offers several styles and sizes, all of which have very nice shapes and colors. I love my cream Mighty Mug Go and have added it to my morning mug rotation.
One dislike I have involves the shape of the sipping area of the lid. My mug has a convex area near the drinking hole which curves the opposite direction of my lip. However, they sell this lid separately which looks like it would solve this problem.
If you are looking for a nice mug that won’t spill, look no further.
I was not paid to write this post, however, I was sent the mug for free.
