The 6 Best Wide Bottom Travel Mugs for Your Coffee

Wide base travel mugs are deeply underrated if you ask me. They are great for both the office and for the commute. The thing is if you are at a desk a wide bottom mug won’t tip over so easily due to a flying elbow and if you are driving they sit safely on in number of surfaces without tipping over.

Personally they are my favorite.

In today’s article, we are going to discuss the best wide base mugs that are available for you, right now. We’re going to briefly review all of them so that you can choose the right mug for your situation.

Before we get to the list make sure to see this article if you are buying a travel mug for a keurig coffee maker. Many of the wide bottom mugs won’t fit under them.

So now let’s take a look at those wide base mugs, shall we?

Buyer’s Guide

Well, we managed to keep some specific things in mind to judge these models and help us find the best options that are available out there.

In order for you to find the best one for yourself, though, it’s really important to be aware of how we judged it so that you can judge it according to your own needs, properly. So, the main things that we have considered are these:

  1. The first thing that we had to keep in mind for this article was a wide base.
  2. Next, aesthetics also received consideration, because that’s important to a lot of people. You don’t want to ruin the look of wherever your mug will end up, so we’ve done the hard work for you and chosen the models that would look good anywhere.
  3. Again, this article is about the best travel mugs. So, it was equally important to consider the capacity of the mugs that we were going to list. We couldn’t simply talk about a huge mug and call it travel friendly, right?
  4. Another point is the economic factor. Yes, that’s always one of the things that you must consider. You simply can’t choose something that’s not economically sound for you.

Travel Mug FAQs

Now, there might still be a lot of questions coming up in your mind. It’s usually at this point that you might start to ask me a ton of questions and that’s completely understandable. However, since this isn’t exactly a conversation and you can’t ask them to me while I’m writing this, I’m going to answer the most common questions right now and I’m going to ask you to not hesitate to just leave me a message through the “contact us” section of our site should you have any queries.

I repeat, please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any queries at all! So, the main questions might be summed up as follows:

  • Does the Wide Bottom feature make a difference when it comes to functionality
    Yes, this is one of the things that seriously requires clarification. Some people might be under the illusion that the structural peculiarity comes along with issues with the functional quality. Well, it’s important to understand that that’s not the case at all. Please know that it’s only a structural specification and it has no functional counterpart, so there is no reason to be worried. The function is just the same as any other model and the big base is just a special feature!
  • Are the small models any different from the larger ones?
    Aside from capacity/size, not really. The whole containing and insulating mechanism is mostly the same, it’s only the size that’s different to suit some specific cases.
  • What are some of the features I might look for?
    As I said earlier, this depends on what your needs are. Some people look for a better grip feature, while some people look for a better insulation. So, the best feature that you might look for varies with your needs, but keep in mind that there is a model dedicated to serving every need and you just need to search properly.


At the end of the day, all these models are available out there and you can just go out and buy any of them right now, but that’s not all that there is to it. You must still remember that you’re buying the model for yourself, therefore, you must know all your specific needs and make sure that it serves those. That’s the only way to ensure that you’re being a smart buyer and that you’re actually making a smart investment. It’s important to consider all the aspects before investing in a product, however minor it might seem in the first place- because nothing is truly minor in life.

You must be aware about your specific needs and judge the product according to those needs. It is important to understand and to keep in mind that the best model out there isn’t always the right one for you. The best one for you is the one that does what you need it to at the most reasonable price. So, keep that in mind and you can consider yourself to be on the way of being a really smart shopper!

Top 7 Wide Bottom Travel Mugs [My Favorites]

Wide bottom travel mugs are what we at GGC Coffee have found to be the answer for those of you who want to feel like you’re at home when drinking coffee.

Wide bottom mugs are more like coffee pots – just smaller and lighter, so that makes them more portable! They’re ideal to keep at work as they all give you more than one warm cup of coffee. They also aren’t prone to being knocked over easily like some other narrower mugs.

Many of these wide base mugs are short enough to fit under Keurig mini coffee makers too!

Here are some wide base insulated mugs that we like. They may not fit in car cup-holders but they are great for dashboards and office workers.

These Are Our Favorite Wide Base Travel Mugs

Highwave MoJOEmo 22 ounce wide bottom travel mug

Highwave MoJOEmo 22 ounce wide bottom travel mugHighwave MoJOEmo 22 ounce wide bottom travel mugThis is our absolute favorite wide bottom travel mug! It’s super big and has a super wide base making it very hard to tip over, even in a moving vehicle.

Not only is it a stable mug but it also is a really good thermal mug too. It will keep your coffee hot for a really long time if you keep it sealed up and the lid is leak proof too so you shouldn’t have any messes.

Stainless Steel Thermal Insulated Wide Bottom Chubby Cup

Stainless Steel Thermal Insulated Wide Bottom Chubby CupStainless Steel Thermal Insulated Wide Bottom Chubby CupThe Chubby mug is a close second around here. We srtill recommend it to people though because it’s probably the most stable mug of them all and the lid is really easy to drink through.

This mug isn’t designed to keep your coffee hot all day long or prevent all leaks but that does mean it’s easy to use. It is easy to drink from the sipper lid and coffee can cool down to a drinkable temperature in a reasonable time.

And for such a large travel mug this mug will still fit under a Keurig… even if the machine can’t fill it up without using two k-cups.

20oz Foam Insulated Wide Body ThermoServ Mugs

20oz Foam Insulated Wide Body ThermoServ Mugs20oz Foam Insulated Wide Body ThermoServ MugsWe would be doing a disservice to the community to not list the Thermoserv wide body mugs on this list.

These mugs are really affordable and you can get two with your purchase! They aren’t vacuum insulated not are they leak proof but they are leak resistant wide bottom mugs and that’s alright for their low price.

For a wide base mug they tend to get really great customer reviews too.

Here’s a Few More Wide Bottom Mugs To Consider

 Highwave 18 oz Hotjo – OceanMore Info Low Rider No Tip Desk Mug – BlackMore Info Stanley Stainless Steel Classic Mug (18 oz)More Info Timolino 17 oz. @tanium II Vacuum Travel MugMore Info

Product Descriptions

  • Our wide bottom mugs generally range in price from $10.00 to $30.00.
  • All wide-bottom mugs usually come with a detachable lid and handle. The lids are either flip up, or twist off. None of them come with detachable lids that can double as cups.
  • They come in stoneware, foam-walled, stainless steel, plastic, or some combination of these specifically designed in order to not burn you.


Stainless steel: stainless steel mugs provide better insulation (keeping beverages hot or cold longer) than other materials, and do not stain as easily. Many of these mugs require hand washing.

Plastic: plastic mugs are definitely the easiest to throw into a dishwasher and microwave; however, they stain easier and may scratch as opposed to a stainless steel mug.  If you’re worried about the type of plastic, make sure the mug you’re buying is “BPA-free plastic.” BPA-free plastic is also designed with resistance to withstand high impact.

Stoneware: stoneware mugs are dishwasher safe, microwavable, easy to clean by hand, and also look beautiful. It’s a unique style of mug that may be a little heavier than other mugs, but they last a long time.

Foam-walled: foam-walled, or insulated, mugs are designed to retain heat well and are also dishwasher-safe, unlike some stainless steel mugs.

Additional Perks and Information

  • Wide bottom travel mugs vary in serving sizes, but generally range between 15oz and 22oz.
  • In addition to being wide which helps with balance, a lot of them come with no-slip bases in order to not tip over.


For those of you that prefer to have a more portable travel mug than these, but one that will hold the same amount of coffee, the closest equivalents we have would be our 20oz coffee mugs. Our 20oz mugs are taller and more slender in shape, but will still keep your coffee warm and you won’t lose out on ounces. The main difference is that not all of the 20oz mugs come with a drinking handle.
