the perfect multi purpose commuter coffee mug

I want a new coffee/tea container. It should be microwave-safe, dishwasher-safe with a sealable cap and a close loop handle. Is that too much too ask for?

It is frustrating, all these cute and handsome, elegant, no gorgeous, designer coffee / tea containers. But, when I flip them upside down they all seem to say, "do not microwave" or, "hand wash only". I just want to find one that works as well as look pretty. Actually, I could deal with an ugly one, if it's functional.
A lot of mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe, of course. But, I want something bigger, portable, with a lid and a close loop handle (so that I may easily hold it or fasten it when empty).
Once in a very long while I'll run across one that is both microwave safe and dishwasher safe and with lid, but it will not have a handle. (don't other people use these things like I want to?)
Added perks could be (and, I know I'm stretching it):
1. a removable french press type plunger mechanism
3. thermal lining (vacuum or insulation or just plain air)
