One of the biggest hurdles in choosing to carry around a smoothie cup is having somewhere to carry it. Full size cups, especially those that are double wall vacuum insulated are around 20cm in height. By comparison, the Stojo Biggie sits at just 5cm tall when collapsed.
Stojo cups are made from food grade silicone and are designed to be quickly flattened down. Simply slip off the heat band, have the lid in the open position, remove the straw and push down. The heat band stores neatly underneath the cup.
To fill, have the cup in the open position with the heat sleeve on. When full, hold the cup by teh heat band and screw the lid on. Other similar cups have a terrible design flaw that requires you to push the lid on. We do not find this safe with hot liquid.
The lid is advertised as leakproof when closed. Remove the straw and swing the silicone stopper around. While it is leakproof, it's not sturdy enough to withstand a lot of force rolling around a bag with hot liquid, so we advise to keep it upright when transporting.
The Stojo Biggie is also suitable for use as a coffee cup and will withstand hot liquids too.
