Disappointed in tab on lid.
I am disappointed with the closing cap on my keep cups. I bought three of them and was using the glass one at home without lid which was lovely to drink from however when I took the first small plastic one out with me, the lid was not stable at all. The tab does not click firmly into place. It is very flimsy. I tested the medium one at home and it is exactly the same, does not have a good seal. Very disappointed and vill be returning both cups. Will be keeping glass one as have used it many times without lid but very disappointed.
Those pesky tabs
I’ve owned two KeepCups that I used extensively. The plastic in the second cup I bought approximately 12 months after the first was decidedly flimsier. My real beef though is with the tabs on top of the lid. On both cups they would come off in my bag and I found myself constantly looking for the tabs to place back on the cups. I ended up losing the tabs off both cups which is where my Keep Cup journey has ended. I doubt I would buy another as there is more competition in this sector than there was when I purchased the cup originally.
Does exactly what it should do
I have several keep cups - a colourful espresso one for my kid's babycinos, a glass one for my flat whites (which came with a beautiful and sustainable cork ring around it to keep my fingers from burning), and 2x fully plastic keep cups - one I always keep in the car and another in my bag. Have helped me save SO many 'disposable' (& terrible for the environment) coffee cups from landfill!! I am yet to know of ANY coffee holders which won't spill if you turn them upside down or on their side - who doesn't hold their coffee cups in their hand any...way?! If your plastic cup smells wash it once with vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar) & the smell disappears. Now it just smells of lovely coffee after I wash my long blacks out of it. LOVE Keep Cups!! Home grown business too..!
Purchased in January 2017.
To hot to handle - Avoid at all cost
Total waste of money. You can’t hold the cup properly as the glass becomes too hot to handle and the cork band is too small and doesn’t offer the protection required to prevent burning your hands. I contacted the company and their advice was to purchase an additional accessory to go over the glass. I paid $32 for this cup and now im expected me to outlay another $10 to prevent being burnt by their poorly designed cup.
Leaks from lid seal so bad
I bought this product to use my tea in. This get so hot I can not even touch the cup and the rubber bit is so very hot. I can barley hold. Then it starts leaking from the top lid where it is meant to be sealed. I paid $25.00 for this and it’s terrible. I’ll be buying a Nespresso one with the screw lid today. And disspose of the keep cup
Leaks from Lid; I use it with a towel! Strong plastic taste from Lid. Durable.
- Leaks substantially from lid (pack a towel!)
- overpowering plastic taste & smell when drinking from lid
+ durable (the full plastic version)
I bought the fully plastic version (not glass / cork versions) for durability on the road and dishwasher friendly, however it leaked from the very first day from where the lid secures to the cup.
I thought I wasn't putting it on securely, then thought it was coming from the mouthpiece (as I am on the road so always use it with lid on) but finally realised it is a design flaw and actually does lea...
Drinking and wearing coffee
Was bought a keep cup as I wanted to try and do my bit for the environment. The first two I had to return due to faulty lids within a week. The third was of better quality, as it lasted three weeks until the lid started leaking. Now every time I take a sip, I also get to wear the coffee. Your better off with a $2 cup from Kmart.
Looks good don’t like the taste
The smaller one looks cute and colourful and fits well into the workplace coffee machine. I just don’t like the taste of drinks in it. Stopped using it and am now using a glass one with rubber lid...drinks taste 100% better in it. I love that I’m not using disposable cups.

As designed with a little common sense
Large original; perfect; just a suggestion a drawstring tote bag would be good. So if you're work/shopping bag doesn't have room you can clip it on.
Don't understand bad reviews. It's a pretty simple item but not idiot-proof.
Mine is great. Mine doesn't stink & keeping in mind it serves milky beverages I let it air when not in use, don't store with the cap on. Mine doesn't leak (I check the lid & sip cover & don't put it upside down in my bag or whatever some people apparently choose to do). It's not a thermos so I don't expect it to keep m...
I have several keepcups (old and new style classic/plastic design) and use them daily. Far better than disposable cups, with the added bonus that you always can tell when your coffee is ready.
Easy to clean by hand or just chuck them in the dishwasher (plug goes into the cutlery basket). They're comfortable to hold and carry; and the newer style lids are much better to drink from with the larger sipper.
Only reason I give this 4 not 5 stars is the occasional leak (I wouldn't throw a full one into my bag); the new lids can be slightly tricky to fit; and some odd limitations in the colour range. Not big problems in the grand scheme of things.

KeepCup is green and easy to keep clean
Bought my keepcup a few months ago, very happy with it. Have used reuseable coffee cups before but will now only use keepcup, I found keepcup is easy to clean, can put in my stroller caddy and wont spill and easy to use. I love the colours too.

I love my many KeepCups
I have been buying Keep Cups since their early days and keep going back because they are fantastic.
The most recent Keep Cups are the best so far, with many colour combinations available, great functional design and they are helping reduce disposable cup waste - what more could you want. I don't find that they leak, although I'm not throwing mine around the place filled with hot coffee, I might tip it to the side every now and then without realising while carrying it, but I've not experienced leaking.
The rubber grip band around the Kee...p Cups also make them comfortable to carry hot coffee (or any hot drink) in. They also come in a range of standard café coffee sizes, with plastic or glass options. All in all, I would recommend Keep Cups to anyone.
Questions & Answers
Put the lid in the dishwasher to clean it now everytime I take a sip I get a bit of a funky smell that affects the smell of the coffee. Any tips on how to get rid of the smell?
I wouldn't recommend putting the lid in the dishwasher because the glue will come off over time that keeps the inside of the lid attached.
Wash it by hand ongoing, but I haven't had a strange smell from the lid from the times I had put it in the dishwasher. Unfortunately, the issue above occurred, so I hand-wash the lid now.
