CHICAGO, Apr 16, 2012 (GlobeNewswire via COMTEX) –
With the launch of three new first-of-their-kind products, Contigo, a leading brand of innovative travel mugs and hydration bottles, shows it has a handle on what its consumers want when it comes to enjoying hot or cold beverages. Recent Contigo consumer research revealed that more than 60 percent of users prefer a handle on their thermal mugs, prompting the brand to develop the new products with this favored feature.
The first products merging handled beverageware and Contigo’s wildly popular patented AUTOSEAL technology, which automatically seals between sips to protect against spills and leaks, are detailed below. The AUTOSEAL technology allows for convenient one-handed use, which is especially essential for commuters keeping their eyes on the road.
Contigo Randolph Vacuum-Insulated Handled Travel Mug
-- Stainless steel double-wall, vacuum-insulated to keep beverages hot for up to four hours and cold for 12 hours, and also eliminate external condensation. -- Sleek design fits most car cup holders for convenient travel, and compact size fits most single-serve brewers. -- Holds 16 fl. oz. -- Available now in Berry, Midnight Blue, Gunmetal and Stainless Steel. -- Product videos available at YouTube.com/GoContigo: Technology and features and In action -- Suggested retail price: $22.99.
Contigo Fulton Vacuum-Insulated Handled Desk Mug
-- Stainless steel double-wall, vacuum-insulated to keep beverages hot for up to four hours and cold for 10 hours, and also eliminate external condensation. -- Compact size fits most single-serve brewers. -- Holds 12 fl. oz. -- Available in May 2012 in Brushed Stainless Steel. -- Suggested retail price: $17.99.
Contigo Quincy Handled Travel Mug
-- Plastic double-wall construction reduces external condensation and helps retain beverage temperatures. -- Sleek design fits most car cup holders for convenient travel. -- Holds 16 fl. oz. -- Available in August 2012 in Black and Sky Blue. -- Suggested retail price: $12.99.
In addition to the convergence of the AUTOSEAL technology with the ergonomic handled lid, which is uniquely designed for both right- and left-handed drinkers, all three new products deliver:
-- An enhanced, more traditional way of drinking, thanks to a newly engineered reservoir spout that allows the user to sip at their own pace, better control the flow of their beverage and enjoy its aroma as well. -- An updated lid technology, which, in addition to being top-rack dishwasher safe, features a new hinged-interior AUTOSEAL mechanism, allowing for more accessibility and visibility in the cleaning process.
“Consumers have told us that they often purchase more than one Contigo product because of the brand’s quality and dependability,” said Contigo CEO Sami Elsaden. “The Randolph, Fulton and Quincy continue that tradition and offer another option for consumers who have admired Contigo products, but prefer beverageware that has a handle. We’re excited to be able to meet those needs and will continue to develop products with consumers in mind.”
The three new handled products were first introduced to industry insiders at the International Home + Housewares Show in Chicago in March, 2012. All three will be available to consumers at retailers across the country and online at
