What to Look For When Buying a Stainless Steel Water Bottle

It’s time to invest in your health and the planet with a new stainless steel water bottle. 

What’s great about stainless steel drinkware is that it’s durable, heat-resistant, and your hot drinks stay hot and your cold drinks stay cold! What’s not to like?

Why Choose Stainless Steel?

We’ve talked about the benefits of choosing stainless steel over plastic water bottles countless times, but here’s a refresher.

Stainless steel bottles can regulate your drink’s temperature, support a healthier environment and last longer. Unlike plastic or aluminum bottles, they’re more durable and reliable, remain hygienic over time and are easy to clean to remove any lingering substances left behind.

Because stainless steel is already made from natural elements and can be easily recycled into new products or repurposed when you decide to switch to a new bottle, this choice of water bottle is the best option for the planet’s health and your own. 

How to Choose A Stainless Steel Water Bottle

Choosing the perfect bottle can be a somewhat personal process. For people who use insulated bottles outdoors, the main focus will be on finding something which can keep liquid warm or cold for as long as possible. Alternatively, if you’re just taking your stainless steel bottle to work, you might want to focus on something that looks stylish. 

Here are a few features to look for:

  • Durability
  • Stainless steel is a naturally durable material. But some bottles will be more durable than others. We recommend bottles made with high-quality steel material, like 304 stainless steel, also known as 18/8. Check out this post to learn more about food-grade stainless steel.

  • Convenient lid and mouth
  • The mouth of the bottle should be easy to drink from, whether you’re looking for a straw lid or one with a wide mouth. Remember, convenience is key when you want to grab a drink as quickly as possible. 

  • Portability
  • A carry loop or carry handle can make it easier to take your bottle with you wherever you go, which means you’re more likely to use it regularly. You should also consider the size of your bottle. Does it fit comfortably in your hands or in your car’s cup holder?

  • Temperature control
  • The best water bottle should be able to keep your drink at the right temperature for as long as possible. This is particularly important if you’re using your water bottle during long trips and travel. Look for an insulated water bottle with good temperature control for hot and cold drinks.

  • Design
  • Whether you’re looking for a water bottle, tumbler or mug, your chosen drinkware should match your sense of style. Choosing a bottle you like the look of improves the chances of you continuing to use that bottle frequently in the future.
