Overall Impression: The Cuppow can be used with any standard canning jar to create a good-looking, sturdy and affordable travel mug.
The first time I saw the Cuppow, I thought it was one of the smartest ideas I'd seen in awhile. Canning jars make good everyday glasses, but they aren't the best for on-the-go drinking, especially with hot drinks. Enter the Cuppow, a BPA-free lid that works with the standard canning ring to transform any wide mouth or regular mouth jar into a commuter mug. With all my anticipation, I was afraid it wouldn't live up to the hype, but I was pleased to find that there is even more to like about this lid than I originally thought.
