My Story:

I was in grade 8 and it was sometime in December. Our teacher would get us started on some craft activities to make decorations, ornaments, and other artwork related to Christmas. She would have an audio player with speakers and she would play Christmas carols as we worked and she would sit at her desk and work with a mug of coffee on her desk. The mug had some weird joke on it to the lines of, "...something, something, human bean." We would work on our arts and crafts and then have recess. Sometimes, if the weather was really bad out, we would have recess indoors and someone, there would always be someone, would be eating clementines. One kid would get teased a lot. We were all in the same class. We had been with the same group of peers for 9 and a 1/2 years up to that point and there would still be one kid that would get teased and made fun of. I didn't do any teasing, but I felt bad that I didn't realize one of my classmates was being harassed by other kids. The student didn't know what to do, so he went to our teacher. The teacher during class interrupted our activities and yelled at us. She mentioned one of our own did not have friends and would be picked on and made fun of and how this was hurting him. The student was not in class during this. The teacher then told us that she was ashamed of us and we needed to do better. She mentioned his name. The energy shifted in the entire room. Things changed. Everyone in our class was warmer to him. People reached out to him. Some apologized to him. Mostly, we just talked to him more. The bullying stopped. From time to time when I see a coffee mug on a desk, I think of this incident.

How did this purchase improve my life?

The Yeti Rambler 14 oz mug improved my life by allowing me to have a warm or cold drink by my desk that stayed warm or cold much longer than with a typical porcelain mug. I never used to have any drinks near my computer as I was always worried that I might spill drinks over my keyboard. Now that I have a drink in the area as my work computer, my stress level has gone down a notch or my comfort level has gone up a notch. It was a nice feeling to have something tasty to drink nearby. It has also improved my life because since owning it, I feel like I have an additional "nice thing." It is more expensive than typical mug that you can buy that's made of porcelain. There are other similar mugs that are cheaper, but they are no-name brands or brands I have never heard of. When I thin Yeti, I think quality. They are already very well known for their hard and soft coolers. The Yeti Rambler 14 oz mug is my nice mug and psychologically, it feels nice using it because it is a better, more expensive mug, but the build quality and nice shape and aesthetic appeal changes the experience of using a mug a little. Everytime I use it, I try to tell myself that I bought the mug as a nice treat to myself and not to forget that. Furthermore, I liked having the mug because Yeti is known for their ruggedness and durability. It gives me a bit of peace of mind knowing that if I ever dropped my Yeti mug that it will only sustain very minor damage. Aside from the mess from the spilled liquid that the mug contained, there won't be bits of broken porcelain or glass everywhere because my porcelain mug shattered when it fell. Another attestation to the Yeti Rambler 14 oz mug's durability is the it can be washed in the dishwasher. Not all stainless steel mugs are created equal and the inferior ones can be damaged quite easily in the dishwasher. Because it is so durable, I can use the Yeti Rambler and when I am finished with it, throw it in the dishwasher. This is very convenient. Even if you want to wash it by hand, it has a large mouth so it is very easy and comfortable to wash by hand.

How do I use this item?

When I first got the Yeti Rambler 14 oz mug, I was it by hand with dish detergent and a sponge. I then poured various liquids into it and flushed them out just to be safe. I would use the Yeti Rambler for hot drinks so that I can have warm drinks by my desk to start my day off. I would usually put coffee in it and drink half shortly after making it. I would then take the remaining coffee and top the mug off with a malt beverage, Ovaltine. I could then consume the rest of the liquid gradually over the next couple of hours while I worked and the drink would still be decently warm. I would leave the lid on to keep the liquid warmer for longer. I would not push the lid down all the way as I find it a little difficult to take off as it goes on quite snugly. So, I just leave the lid sitting on top of the mug. If you ever have to do a lot of transporting the mug from desk to desk or table to table, I recommend pushing the lid on all the way. After I am finished my drink, I would rinse out the mug thorough and fill it with water. I try to stay hydrated while I work to balance out the water I lose from the coffee. When I am finished with the mug for the day, I throw it in the dishwasher.

Final Thoughts:

One of the nicest things about the Yeti Rambler 14 oz mug is the excellent build quality. It has a bit of heft to it so you can determine it is made with thicker sheets of steel. I didn't notice and damage or defects on it. It is smooth and looks great. The mug is smooth inside and had a bead-blasted look to it. You also won't find any welds inside it. The handle is interesting because it is flat and wide. A conventional mug handle is narrower and rounded. The Yeti Rambler's handle is more comfortable to put your fingers through to hold. One thing that is nice is the handles are welded onto the mug with loop welding and not spot welding. The net effect is the handles are attached more strongly and it is much harder for the handle to break off. I also like the heavy handles on the mug. Some other models in this line don't have handles. I think it looks better, has a more classic feel to it. One of the reasons a mug has handles is so that you don't overheat your hands and fingers while holding a hot drink. This won't be an issue since the mug is insulated. For those who like warming their hands with a warm drink in a porcelain mug, you lose this feature, but the Yeti Rambler has so many other benefits to make up for it. With its nice aesthetics, excellent build quality, and excellent ability to keep warm drinks warm and cold drinks cold, I feel that anyone who loves hot drinks should have at least one of the Yeti Rambler 14 oz mugs. in their warm drink stable. It has a slightly higher initial cost than a typical porcelain mug, but it is well worth it with its durability and inability to crack, chip, or break over the years. All in all, I love this mug and will soon be buying another one.
