“It is an incredible honor to be selected by TIME as one of the year’s best inventions,” said Clay Alexander, founder and CEO of Ember. “This recognition is deeply personal to me, as I’ve been a serial inventor since I was a child. I’ve dedicated my career to creating products that enhance people’s lives, and Ember is the culmination of years of research and my unending passion surrounding thermal science. The excitement for our new temperature-control Ceramic Mug has been fantastic, and this recognition by TIME is a wonderful accolade that we’re excited to celebrate.”

Made of durable stainless steel with a reinforced ceramic coating, the Ember Ceramic Mug combines minimal, refined design with advanced thermal technology. Embedded with multiple temperature sensors and a microprocessor-controlled dual-band heating system, the mug will maintain coffee or tea at the user’s perfect drinking temperature. Incredibly simple to use, the Ceramic Mug has intuitive technology, allowing it to “sleep” when not in use and “wake up” as soon as it is picked up, so consumers only need to turn it on once.

The Ember Ceramic Mug retails for $79.95 and is available on ember.com and in most Starbucks locations across the U.S. Additional Ember products and accessories are also available on ember.com.
