Happy November, Zo Fans!

This month, we’re excited to delve into the world of our stainless steel tumblers – your versatile and stylish companion for hydration on the go. Whether you’re enjoying a hot cup of coffee on your commute or a cold glass of iced tea on a hot summer day, a Zojirushi tumbler will keep your drink refreshing and delicious any time of year. In this guide, we’ll cover everything you need to know about our tumblers, from all our different models available to their top features and specifications. Let’s dive in!

What’s the Difference Between a Tumbler and a Mug?

Zojirushi offers a range of vacuum insulated beverage containers, including mugs and bottles, so you don’t have to worry about which ones are vacuum insulated and which ones are not. While Zojirushi has many types of vacuum insulated products, you may wonder how tumblers differ from mugs. Tumblers come with a wider mouth opening, making them ideal for coffee or tea. They are also easier to fill and clean than stainless steel mugs. In addition, many tumblers come with leak-proof lids. Both tumblers and mugs are convenient for travel, and some of Zojirushi’s tumblers even come with handles.

Meet the Models

Features & Specifications

Did you know that our very first product was a glass-lined vacuum bottle, all the way back in 1918? Safe to say, we know our way around vacuum insulation and we’ve been perfecting the art of the technology for over 100 years. Here are some of the features we promise with every Zojirushi tumbler:

  • Keeps drinks hot or cold for hours on end. Zojirushi tumblers use vacuum insulation to keep drinks at the perfect temperature for hours. This means that there is a vacuum between the inner and outer layers of each tumbler, which blocks heat transfer through air.
  • Durable and long-lasting. Zojirushi tumblers are made with high-quality steel, and our SlickSteel® polished stainless steel interior makes every tumbler stain-resistant, odor-resistant, and allows the color of your beverage to shine through.
  • Easy to clean. Zojirushi tumblers are easy to clean, and feature wide openings so you can hand wash them with ease as well.
  • Stylish and versatile. Zojirushi tumblers come in a variety of colors and styles, so you can find one that matches your personality and lifestyle.
  • Always safe. Like all Zojirushi products, surfaces that come into contact with food or beverages are BPA-free.
