Can anyone speak to how these compare to the (amazing) SM-KHE48AG mugs from Zojirushi?
This one is a thermos with a separable cup. The one you note is a flip-top carafe; a separate drinking cup/mug is needed. (Yeah, it says you can drink from the carafe, but I'd have lots of doubts about that. :) )
Beyond that...dunno, but other than color options (the KHE has many of those)...probably nothing, functionally.
you can absolutely drink from the KHE
I think he refers to when you're filling your mug with scolding hot water and it gets impossible to drink straight from it without burning yourself.
Same heat retention performance. I have the SM-KHE48AG and I just bought the SV-GWE50 for my girlfriend. They maintain liquids' heat for equal amounts of time. I actually find the SV-GWE50 more convenient since it comes with a cup in the lid that allows you to cool hot liquid to a drinkable temperature without having to use disposable cups or carry a separate mug around for drinking. Both keep fluids hot for so long that I've found the separate vessel is necessary in order to be able to drink in a timely manner. They have different inner coatings I believe. Or at least this one has the stainless (whatever their trademarked coating is) whereas my SM-KHEA48AG has the grey nonstick. The coatings are basically the same aside from the named differences and the stainless version being clear.
