Mighty Mug resists knocking and heeling
Non-spill mugs are nothing new, but this one’s different. James Turner takes a look at a novel way of solving the problem.
I’ve come across all sorts of insulated coffee mugs aimed at sailors. Some rely on wide bases, great until you want to put them in cup holders. Some have supposedly non-slip pads, but sooner or later an inadvertent tack, or a whack with the elbow will send them flying across the boat. The Mighty Mug is different. It can be picked up and put down with no resistance, but a suction mechanism hidden in the base grips any smooth surface. The motion of putting it on a surface creates suction, so when it is tilted or knocked, it stays put. It sounds too good to be true, but it really does do as it claims. It’s available from chandlers in red, black or stainless steel in the standard 32cl size, or red or charcoal in 47cl size. It’ll fit most cup-holders and it’s dishwasher safe, too.
