This thing is the size of a personal cooking pot for backpacking. Pros: Ultra light, thin walled stainless steel, fits a stove perfectly. Cons: I could crush this with my hands. Yet, a certain amount of spring to the steel, so probably will hold up under use. I will test this item on an upcoming hun... Read More

  • big mug
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by janno from Colorado on Wednesday, June 6, 2018
    Okay, I should have actually got out a measuring cup to see how big 28 oz. is. It's huge. I thought these mugs would be nice for camping. I used to have a stainless mug that I used for coffee in the morning and soup at night. This mug is too big and I'm afraid my coffee would get too cold before I could finish it. I returned it.

    Great gift for campers, this stainless steel mug is large enough for a generous drink and large enough for a meal. I'm going to use them as gift containers.

    A very lightweight and thin gauge aluminum cup.
  • They're not grandpas tin cups!
    Verified Buyer Reviewed by NEIL from NY on Thursday, October 12, 2017
    I purchased 4 of these for use as coffee and soup cups. They're great. The stainless steel isn't 1810 gauge but they are seamless mugs with a sturdy handle. They are a bit thin but if you want a large cup to hold some of your grandma's chicken soyp or a hot cup of coffee these are the ticket. They are large diameter so they won't spill also. So here's a toast to your new cup, you've found it.

  • “Does this hold the heat for coffee, soups, etc., reasonably well?”
    Asked by Anonymous from Colorado on 2/8/2016 6:55:48 PM
    • It's kind of thin. It doesn't hold heat long but I do like the cup. I use it more for soup or tea. Great stew or chilli mug. It's huge.
      Answered on 2/8/2016 6:58:54 PM by Ralph from Ohio.
    • It does for me. I drink a large coffee in the morning, and have no trouble with it staying hot. However, it is not a thermos. It is not designed to hold heat beyond standard drinking time.
      Answered on 2/8/2016 6:59:11 PM by KK5LU from TEXAS
    • Not particularly well. It keeps a mug of tea hot long enough to drink it, but not as long as a thick ceramic mug or an insulated travel mug.

    • It is impossible to know that answer without testing. So, without misleading you, you will have to determine that yourself. HINT: this mug is NOT insulated.

    • Not bad. It's thin and lightweight, non insulated. But doesn't seem to transfer heat to the handle as quick as other mugs I've used. I use for oatmeal with no problems.
      Answered on 2/8/2016 7:48:30 PM by 80grady from Maryland
    • Reasonably well. If you are on the trail and it is cold or blowing, try putting a cover over the cup. Anything will do. If you are in a car type campsite, the heat will hold for a while.
      Answered on 2/8/2016 8:30:18 PM by California Girl from Santa Barbara
    • it holds heat reasonably well. However, we used it mostly as a cook pot on a backpack stove to boil water for freeze-dryed meals, coffee, instant hot chocolate and tea. it holds enough water for more than one item, boils rapidly, and requires less fuel in circumstances where fuel consumption is an issue.
      Answered on 2/8/2016 11:47:35 PM by Fly Teach from Portland OR
    • It is a thin stainless steel, which makes it lightweight for camping/backpacking which is ideal, and the size makes it a good cooking type pot, but because it is a thin stainless steel it will not hold the heat for coffee, soups for too long. Transfer whatever you used it for to a insulated cup to hold the heat.
      Answered on 2/9/2016 4:34:56 AM by Sember Fi- Marine from Wyoming
    • The mug is thin metal with no insulation. Therefore it conducts heat rapidly. With really hot soup you have to hold the handle or have something to insulate your hand.
      Answered on 2/9/2016 9:34:12 AM by Camp chef from Wind river mountains
    • It should do okay, but as it is not insulated it will not hold heat for too long.
      Answered on 2/9/2016 9:48:23 AM by Product Specialist from Sierra Trading Post
    • works great on an induction stove heating up soup and stays fairly warm for a while doing that. But I would say a good ceramic coffee mug holds the heat better for coffee. But if you're camping it's about the same as the poly carbonate cups. It absorbs the heat of whatever is in it. Great cup though, very handy for iced drinks too.

    • Yes, this steel cup holds up to whatever you put in it. I even brewed tea over a fire. The steel had a bronze tone after.

      Have not put one in the dishwasher but with stainless steal it should be ok. The heat it takes on the pocket rocket doesn't even leave a mark on the bottom. And we washed them on the trail using hot water and we boiled water in then and they were fine.. So I would say yes.

    • The cup is completely metal with metal welding to fix the handle so I don't see the dishwasher ruining it. I never checked it but I don't see why not. I use the cup in an open camp fire flame so I clean with steel wool to clean off smoke residue but otherwise I wouldn't hesitate putting into dishwasher.

    • As an experiment I heated water to boiling over an MSR pocket Rocket stove and it worked fine. The cup is thin and the biggest problem I would expect with that is that it would warp if you got it too hot. I think that is easily avoided by simply paying attention and not turning the stove up to high. The handle does get hot so you will need a glove or bandana to handle it with.

    • Having been a backpacking camper using methylated spirit burners for many years, it would be my impression that while this cup is probably large enough to cook a meal or reasonable quantity of water for hot beverages, the lack of insulation and the similar metal used for the handle, I would not recommend using this cup over a heating source unless you utilize some quantity of insulating material to wrap around the handle when attempting to hold the cup while it is being heated. Otherwise, it is highly likely you will sustain a significant thermal burn in the process.
      We backpackers are generally creative in our activities, and are prepared for this inevitability, but if you are NOT a seasoned backpacker, BE AWARE of the dangers, and consider heating food with this mug at home with hot pads or similar at the ready.

    • The mug is not as thick as a Stainless Steel sauce pan. However, if I were camping and needed to heat something in the Jacob Mug, I would sure do so.
      Believe it would hold up well to the heat, it is not than thin, but the handle would also get the heat as it is all stainless steel. Keep in mind the mug is 4.5" circumference so the flame could not engulf the mug, but low flame would work well. I bought two of these, one for my home and one for my fishing cabin.

    • I've used this on my jet boil stove to cook Knorr sides while backpacking and I haven't had a problem. Make sure you have a glove as the handle will get hot. It may be the cold of winter affecting performance but it doesn't seem to heat (cook) as quickly as other ultralight pots I've had. Best thing to do is experiment with it before you rely on it in backcountry!

    • I have not used this mug on a camp stove yet but I have used camp stoves many times and I have cookware that is very similar to this cup. I don't think you would have any issues using this to make soup or something. I would not put this on a camp stove flame without water in it.

    • I guess it all depends on what you want to cook with it. We use it for boiling water and making freeze dried meals, instant potatoes, and couscous fairly regularly and it has shown no worse for ware. I use it either a woodgas or alcohol stove. To be honest the metal is not much thinner, is any thinner, than some of the other backpacking cook pots I have.
