Rated 3 out of 5 by from A basic mug This is a pretty standard mug. If you want a mug that is relatively cheap, isn't particularly heavy or particularly light, and holds liquids as advertised, this fits the bill. I've never noticed a strong metallic taste, and it's lasted me a couple years now with no visible signs of wear. It is a single-walled metal cup, so don't expect it to provide much insulation. One point that bothers me is that the rim folds over the top and leaves a small gap, just large enough to catch my mustache in. For that reason, getting a new mug has been on my list for a while, but this one does well enough that a replacement isn't a high priority.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice, simple, inexpensive cup It's a nice, simple, cheap, single walled cup that you can beat the heck out of. Like another reviewer, I've heated it right on the fire before. It's used to drink coffee out of or eat soup out of. The enamel is durable enough that it still looks new, in spite of many zany antics and much abuse. The only real downside that I can come up with is that the rolled lip of this thing grabs mustache hairs with reckless abandon. There's no escape to be found and you'll have to sacrifice the hair. If you value your symmetrical mustache, or your sanity, you will have to drink carefully from this cup.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Straightforward and simple I wouldn't let this cup get a bad rep. I bought a similar one (same enamel, a little wider) before hitting the trail on a two night hike after leaving my other mug (which has a little more frills) at home accidentally. This mug won me over to my surprise. I've made soup and tea in this mug on both a stove and directly on coals - something I can't do with my more expensive double-walled mug. The enamel has held up fantastically; more than I'd expected. The mug wipes clean easily too. Granted, in cold weather if you leave the mug unattended the contents will get cold, but while holding it in your hands or insulated with a sock, it does fine. The fixed handle does mean it isn't streamlined for packing, but I haven't found it to be a problem for me. For the price, this mug does just great if not a little better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent for avoiding diaposables I bought several of these as gifts for my boy scouts and they loved them. They wrote thier name on the outside and did not lose them. These enameled steel cups will save us from wasting hundreds of disposable hot cups (for hot chocholate, etc). The parents were thrilled and wanted one of thier own.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does its job, but... I bought a couple of these. They work, and feel rather durable. The reason I am giving them 3 stars, is because upon washing them the first time (before use) I left them to soak, and once they dried I had already noticed hints of rust dripping from the folds of the metal. The outer metal finish hasn't rusted, but inside the lip appears to be readily oxidized. So far it hasn't been an issue, as the rusty fluid can be wiped away, but it certainly has the potential for expedited failure. Bought both bowls and plates of the same design; bowls had the same issue, plates had no issue(s).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The quintessential camping mug Yes, it's metal and yes, there was a very slight early metallic taste but after 3 uses and washes it went away. It's a good size and it's exactly what I've always pictured a camping mug to look like. Cheap, durable, what more do you want?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This cup works just fine I was skeptical about this cup because of the last two reviews. I purchased it anyways because the one I wanted was out at the store. I was VERY pleased with it. NO unpleasant metal taste when drinking coffee! Thats all I cared about. It's light, and easy to clean and really came in handy when trying to measure water for our backpacking food. This is a good cup!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked as Expected I was just looking for an inexpensive, durable, multi-use drinking cup when I bought this. It was used in the AM and PM mainly for instant coffee. It did not hold the heat well, but, I drank my coffee fairly quickly so it didn't really matter. It worked just fine and I experienced no metallic taste in my drinks.

Questions & Answers

May I ask where this cup is manufactured? I prefer to buy US products, but am open to other countries of origin.

Asked by: AlexJonsson
The particular cup I purchased was made in México, but I've noticed that some of the GSI dinnerware is made in China.

Is this mug dishwasher safe?  I know this seems silly, but I'm asking from the context of post-hike or post-camping cleanup.  Never put your gear away dirty!
