I absolutely love my ember mug. It’s super chic and it keeps my drinks hot. The downside is they are not dishwasher friendly and they do not offer any colorful options. Other than that, I highly recommend to any hot drink lovers
Stopped working after 3-4 uses and leaked from the start.

If you love hot coffee, this is a no-brainer! They also have travel mugs if you need a lid, but it really does keep my coffee hot for so long & love the presets for types of drink!
Amazing mug - so tecchy and never burns my coffee or impacts taste. Bought them for my whole family. A godsend in the winter!
Magically make them machine washable? 🙃🙏
I really like my ember mug. It does exactly what it says - it keeps beverages at the perfect drinking temperature (that you choose). The design is super sleek, albeit a little boring for my taste. I find myself using other mugs that are a bit more quirky on a more regular basis. I also find it a bit of a hassle to unplug and move the charging coaster every time I want to enjoy a warm beverage somewhere new in my home. I don't think an extra coaster warrants the cost.
Without a doubt worth it - my partner used to microwave her coffee throughout the day, and this not only keeps it warm while it has power, but is insulated enough to maintain it warm enough after it dies.
My only criticism is the battery, but truthfully my partner drinks very slow
Overall I love my Ember mug. I'm the type of person who will get busy with something/distracted and remember that I made covfefe like 20 mins ago but now it's a cold nightmare of a drink. Every time I've used my Ember, my coffee is always the right temp that I like! The design is nice and it feels good in your hand, if maybe a bit heavy. It's pleasant to drink out of, and it fits nicely in the charging base. I also don't really notice my coffee having any bad taste when it stays in the mug for a while. What I don't like is the battery life of the mug itself. One, I always worry that even with a full charge, the mug will die before I'm finished with me coffee (though that hasn't happened yet), and two, you're pretty much required to make sure to charge it daily otherwise you likely will have a dead mug on your hands either before using it or while using it. Also the app is.. not great. It has a slow start-up time, and it seems like anytime I switch apps, the Ember app has to reconnect to my mug to see any updates or make changes. And one last thing, when you're down to your last sip, the coffee tends to get hotter if you don't turn the warmer off which makes for an unpleasant finish to the cup. Overall, I think the Ember mug is useful and can find its place in a daily routine. I think with a better battery life and better software, the mug will be a must-have for coffee lovers.
The app is clunky and slow - needs a faster bootup and to connect to the mug more effectively. The last sips of coffee are not pleasant, I feel like the heater still being on makes the coffee too hot if there's not that much left in the mug.
If your like me and buy $8 lattes that you let sit and get cold until you cannot drink them...This is the perfect cup to fix that. I literally would throw away over half full cups of coffee and tea because once they got cold I was not interested. I know the microwave would heat it up but it was never the same. This cups just keeps it warm and enjoyable without breaking my mind space.
Its a great product, I love the colors being muted and standard. But this past holiday I purchased them for family members and I wished for a better variety to suit some of the personalities I deal with.
I got my 14oz white Ember mug a few months ago and I use it every single day. I used to be the person who never finished their drinks and would be left with cooled down coffee on my desk all day long. Now, I can't remember the last time I didn't finish my coffee/tea. It keeps it just the right temperature (controlled by bluetooth in their app) and notifies you when your drink has cooled down/heated up to your desired temperature. For me, there are two cons: 1) I wish it was dishwasher safe. While hand-washing is no big deal, I wish I could just toss it into the dishwasher every once in a while. 2) It is pretty pricey but I think this was without a doubt a worthwhile investment.
