What’s the difference between stainless steel tumblers and travel mugs?

Tumbler and travel mug are the styles of water bottles that customers often purchase. For some new customers, they may not be able to distinguish the difference between the two types of water cups. In order to help you wholesale stainless steel tumblers and travel mugs, we’ve rounded up the differences between the two styles.

What Is A Stainless Steel Tumbler?

Tumbler is usually used for cold drinks like lemonade, iced tea, smoothies, and summer cocktails. They are usually made of plastic or metal. Double-layer stainless steel tumblers isolate hot and cold drinks. The opening is wide enough for ice and easy to clean, and the base is narrow. The travel tumbler also features a leak-proof lid and space for a straw.

Also known as travel mugs or insulated mugs, stainless steel mugs range from 20 oz to 40 oz and are best for hot and cold drinks. They are usually double-vacuum-insulated, made of stainless steel, and feature straight or tapered edges.

What is a Travel Mug?

The reusable travel mug is an insulated beverage container designed for use on the go. Most have leak-proof covers that screw on or up, and some have handles. The best travel mugs are made from double layers of stainless steel that keep drinks hot or cold for hours. Travel mugs can help you cut down on waste and enjoy coffee, tea, hot chocolate and other drinks at the right temperature. Travel mugs are perfect for commuting, hiking, and camping.

Also known as a travel coffee mug, a travel coffee mug is a 12 to 16 ounce container for drinking hot beverages while on the road. They are usually insulated, made of 18/8 steel, and feature screws on the lid and an attached handle.

What’s the difference between a travel mug and a tumbler?

Generally speaking, there are four ways to tell a tumbler from a stainless steel mug by looking at the handle, shape, size, and lid; Travel mugs are smaller, have straight edges, and have leak-proof cover screws with handles. The tumbler is taller, tapered at the edges, has no built-in handle, and has an anti-splash device on the lid.

The main difference:

Handles – Travel mugs may have handles, but tumblers don’t. Instead, it has straight edges, making it easy to fit into any bag without jamming or any cup holder. Most reusable travel coffee mugs have a handle on the lid for easy portability. The tumbler, on the other hand, has no handle at all and no built-in handle, but you can purchase one that slides so you can turn it into a travel mug.

Lid – A travel tumbler can be used with a straw. Travel mugs usually feature specially designed leak-proof LIDS that are screwed on and held in place by rubber grips. As mentioned above, there is also a handle attached to the screws on the lid.

Shape – The bottom of the tumbler should be narrower, while travel mugs can be straight. Travel mugs tend to have straight sides and are shorter than tumblers; However, the tumbler is taller and has a larger opening, tapering down to a narrower base.

Insulation – Mugs keep warm better than tumblers.

The above is about the introduction of stainless steel tumblers and travel mugs and the difference between the two, hope it will be helpful to you.
