Silicone mug lids?

Post by shingaling » Thu Mar 29, 2012 9:34 am

While walking through sprawlmart the other day, I saw some ceramic coffee mugs with silicone lids. Another attempt to get people to 'go green' and stop using so many paper coffee cups. Good idea.

I scrounge a lot of hiking mugs/pots from thrift stores, building cozies for them and scrounging lids that never fit properly. I would love to get my hands on some of those silicone lids. Hopefully, the dollar stores will catch on to the trend. It's possible these things have been around for a while in the US, but this is the first time I've seen them on the shelves in Canada.

Has anyone seen them in stores anywhere? (Canada or US) I'd prefer to buy a set of replacement lids, instead of having to buy another mug, just to get the lid. I don't think it would be cost effective to order them on line.

Here's a link to one brand on amazon:

Those look ok. Hope to find some silicone lids in a store somewhere. On line I've seen a few different sizes, so there may be one for larger solo pots. Maybe the trend will catch on, and they'll be everywhere in a few months.

I saw some bowl/ mugs at Walmart that are silicone. They collapse down. The larger one looks like it could be a lid for a SP600 or larger. Then its doing double duty as a lid and a bowl!

That would be nice if they fit the sp6oo.

I purchased 2 lids for the ceramic mug out of curiosity to see if they fit the foster pots. Shingaling gave a link to the brand name. They indicate the diameter to be 3.5" od and that might mean that the id might be what I'm looking for. Haha, nothing ventured, nothing gained ;)

I'm gonna pick up the bowls today. Almost too hard to resist. That and I need a new bladder anyway for this weekend.

Ended up passing on the silicone cup/bowl combo at WM. Mostly cause I couldn't justify it. However, the large one WILL fit a SP600. ;)

My thoughts on the sipper type is that they should be able to stay tight to the pot while heating. A tall pot such as a full size Foster with open top that the sil. lid fits onto should be high enough not to melt the edge of the lid when on a stove such as the Fancee Feest or Super Stoves. If the pot were to be knocked off the stove(it happens) ;) the cap would prevent the loss of precious water and wasted fuel. If you had coffee grounds in the pot for hobo coffee you could just let the pot cool and just start to sippin your coffee :ugeek: 8-)
