Ember Mug Costco, Temperature Control Smart Mug 2

Costco sells this Ember Mug 2 for $99.99. Scroll down for photos. I had never heard of these smart mugs until recently. I thought this was a very clever idea to solve the problem of cold coffee. This is a temperature controlled mug that will keep your coffee hot up 145°F. For most people, that will be plenty warm. For those of you who like your coffee to burn your insides all the way down, this may not be for you =). This would make for a nice holiday gift for the coffee lovers in your life. It’s not something I would buy myself, but would make for a great gift. This is the 2nd model & improved design from the first generation. Here are a few more details about this Ember Mug from Costco…….

Costco Ember 14 oz. Temperature Control Smart Mug2, Gray

So I’m not sure I would ever buy a product like this. Even though the reviews are decent, I knew exactly what all the bad reviews would say. The biggest complaints are not hot enough, won’t charge, stopped working after so many months & inside is flaking away. This is enough for me to not purchase this item. I just don’t see how this can last more than a year or 2 & then your stuck buying a new one. That’s pretty steep for $99. It seems like it’s more hassle than it’s worth. I feel a traditional high end mug will work better in the end. Please feel free to chime in if you own one. Anyways, I found this in the middle aisle near the holiday items. They currently sell it on Costco.com for $99.99, so if you can’t find it in store, make sure to check online. If you can’t find this anywhere, make sure to check out these other HIGHLY RATED models & different colors / sizes…….

Price: $99.99, Item Number: 3399632

  1. I have one of these and mind you I’ve only had mine since Christmas of 2021 (so it’s been 4 months) there’s no signs of the inside “flaking” away. It’s made of the same stuff as standard mugs so as long as you take care of the finish and don’t use any metal utensils with it, it’ll totally be fine. I actually enjoy mine so much that I bought a second to have at home while I keep my original at work. I no longer have my coffee going cold on me. I don’t know how people complain about it not getting hot enough. This mug is designed to KEEP hot coffee hot, not warm it up. It also has a max temperature setting of 145℉, so unless those complaining aren’t doing something right they must have mouths of steel. As for the charging issues, it says in the instructions not to charge if there’s any moisture present as it will damage the charging coaster. Again, I’ve had no issues if I wash mine, let it dry upside-down for about 30 minutes, and then throw it on the charger. I truly truly love mine and couldn’t live without it at this point. Double walled glass mugs were the closest I could get to the same experience, but they just don’t keep the liquid at the temperature I prefer.

    1. Thanks so much for the detailed review Hayden! Sounds like you are one happy customer. It also sounds like you are someone who reads the manual and follows the directions of the manufacturer. I only recently started reading the manuals and recommended maintenance schedule on electronics & it’s proved to be VERY helpful. Glad you found it useful and you ended up buying a 2nd one! It’s a little steep at $100 but for someone who drinks coffee everyday this would pay for itself very quickly! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I believe these are the ones from Touch of Modern. They should be good. A little pricey for a coffee mug, but what you are getting will eliminate the need to get up from what you are doing (inside/outside work) and reheat your coffee. Should be worth it.

    1. Thanks for sharing that info Gunman40. Like I said above I just feel like this is something that would end up sitting on the shelf after about a month. Glad to hear you like it and I’ll take a closer look next time I go to Costco.
