There are lots of things to love about the Zoku 3-in-1 Tumbler. Its ample size of 20 ounces. Its durable construction of vacuum insulated stainless steel. Its press-fit lid featuring one opening for sipping and another for inserting a straw. (The 3-in-1 refers to the lid's positions: straw opening, closed, sip opening.) Its pleasing color palette of metallic purple, metallic blue, light blue, teal, white, gunmetal and stainless. Not to mention it will keep cold beverages chilled for up to 24 hours and hot beverages steaming for up to 6 hours.
