Is this a practical joke?
The lid serves virtually no function other than to lull you into the false belief that when you take a sip, you aren't going to burn yourself.
Unfortunately, you're better off throwing the lid away to eliminate any doubt to its efficacy.

Been using glass KeepCups for almost 5 years now
I used to manage cafes, so I am a coffee addict and have seen more reusable cups in my days than most would in their lifetimes. KeepCups were always my favourite of all my customer's cups.
I originally bought a plastic KeepCup 5 years ago (still got it) but liked the appearance of the glass one more, so bought that with a cork band about 3-4 years ago. I have no problems with leaking, though I also don't shake my cup around like a maniac. I have no problem with temperature, it keeps my coffee warm right through till the last drop is gone and I ...
New design lids are terrible
Owned and old glass cup which was quite nice and then two plastic versions which were nice to drink from but not very durable. Purchased two new ones which no longer have the rubber seal under the lid and leak like sieves.
Avoid at all costs. Poor quality and design. Expensive compared to better quality rival products.

Love Keepcup Nitro
Stylish looking Keepcup Nitro, in grey metal. Double walled, keeps my coffee warm even if I'm busy at work and forget to drink it. Had it for over 6mths and it still looks like new.
Purchased in December 2019 at KeepCup for $44.00.
No problem with the cup and no leakage from the lid. I use it everyday now at home for my coffee. But it just can't keep the heat for longer as expected.

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.
Use it every day
I own 5 keep cups; 1 plastic, 4 glass. The glass ones clean up beautifully; cafe’s often complement how clean the cup is. Can buy replacement parts directly from keep cup. Love that their website lets you choose the colour combo :)

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..!

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...
Lid split after a month.
Unfortunately the lid split after a month, can no longer use it, leaks as you drink. Dont think I will buy another. I did not have any issues with taste or smell.
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.
Disposable, just £15 each instead of free!
I really loved my keep cup at first although my partner claimed the coffee tasted chemically. After a few weeks/ months the lid started to leak and the cork all dried out and fell off.
Good luck getting anything out of keep cup. It won’t happen.
Strong chemical smell from lid
I recently bought a glass keep cup and I love it except the lid has a strong chemical smell and taste. It ruins whatever I’m drinking. I’ve cleaned it by hand and in the dishwasher and there’s been no change. It really turns me off wanting to use it.
Good for first 5 months only. Keeps leaking after that.
Easy to transport, cute etc. however can only last about 5 months. Then the cover couldn’t seal the cup properly. My coffee keeps leaking. That’s a bad investment for such an expensive cup.
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.
Not really that good
As a cup it’s fine but it is not insulated and as soon as my hot coffee is inside the outside becomes to hot to hold ... and it doesn’t hold the heat so my coffee gets cold quickly they look nice but I’m not a fan in the market for something else
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...
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.
