If you are like me and many other people from around the world, it is really hard to function in the morning without coffee. Also, if you are a lot like me, it takes a lot to drink the first coffee while waking up. Even if you are like that or a sip is all you need to really open your eyes, if you love coffee, you surely want a way to keep it hot for a longer time. This is where Ember steps in with their line of temperature control devices, including this Smart Mug.
The 10 oz Smart Mug will keep a hot drink at the same temperature for up to one hour. Temperature is set through a smartphone app between 120 and 145 degrees Fahrenheit. If you want to keep the mug hotter for more, just keep it on the coaster since it doubles as a smart mug charger.
The Ember Smart Mug is quite great. It is made out of stainless steel and has a ceramic coating so that scratching is reduced. However, there is one thing that you should know if you think about buying it.
Every single container you buy that can keep your liquids hot for any period of time has to use some sort of coating that gets this done. If you scratch that coating, you have problems. This means that you should never use metal spoons and you have to be a little careful.
There are people that complain about the fact that the internal coat started to peel. However, this is not the case with all reviews and Ember just launched a new version of the temperature control mug. Overall, the buyers do seem happy with the mug. Also, if there is a problem with the mug and you notice flaking or peeling, Ember does replace it. No questions asked.
Overall, the temperature control smart mug by Ember is a great gadget that is a wonderful addition to the kitchen of anyone that loves coffee.
Note: Ember also sells a temperature control travel mug.
