What is it? It's a mug for hot and cold drinks that has a special grip at the bottom to keep it from falling over.

What does it claim? It claims to be the mug that won't fall over, even if you push it.

Who tested it? The manager at Cafe Stella in Norfolk, Brett Helke

What Are The Instructions? You should wash and rinse your Mighty Mug before you first use it. Do not use bleach, chlorine, abrasive or any other harsh chemicals. You can wash your Mighty Mug in the top rack of your dishwasher.

We tested the taller travel mug version. There is also a desk version of Mighty Mug as well.

It's not really difficult to operate. Mighty Mug works with Smartgrip, patented technology that prevents it from falling over when you accidentally knock into it. Simply place your Mighty Mug down on any smooth, flat, non-porous surface. The Smartgrip-enhanced base will instantly grip, preventing you from knocking it over. It looks like a suction cup, but it's not.

It easily lifts straight up, just like any other mug. Just make sure you lift Mighty Mug straight up above the 'wavy line' and then pop open the top and take a sip.

If you're filling your Mighty Mug with boiling liquid, be sure to allow it to cool for a least 3 minutes before placing the lid on it. You should also never microwave or freeze your Mighty Mug.

Did it work? Brett was amazed! He said usually he's the one knocking things over, but he couldn't knock Mighty Mug over. He also liked the leak-proof, flip-top lid and the fact that it's car holder- friendly and dishwasher safe.

Cost/Availability? You can purchase Mighty Mug at Bed, Bath & Beyond for around $20.

Additional Comments:
The Mighty Mug holds 16 ounces of liquid. It's double wall construction will keep your beverage hot or cold longer.
