Eventual disappointment

3

I think I left a review shortly after buying these and I was generally happy. The flip top is a bit annoying because it doesn't stay up, but I find we just unscrew the lid most of the time. Also, 2 of the lids had the plastic chip by the flip top, without a hard fall and that seems flimsy. But generally, they were perfect for us. It's been over a year now, and these really aren't all I had hoped. I love the insulation, the BPA-free, the size, dishwasher safe... But the bottom line is that they leak. We use them in our lunches and often have milk packed in them. The can is not turned upside down or even on its side. Yet every day, there is a small puddle of milk in the bottom of the lunch pail and other food has milk on it. The can itself looks dry, so I can only assume it is coming through the screw-top lid. While we do put the base in the dishwasher, we hand wash the caps so the seal wouldn't be exposed to dishwasher high temps. Hasn't helped. Also, we scrub these pretty good and they definitely retain a milk smell. So much so, that my husband almost threw away the milk because he thought it had gone sour. But once decanted, it's fine. That's a big turn off. These are coming out of rotation for us. I love the concept, but it's just not working. We have 4 and pack a lot of lunches and that's just too much milk sopping up to do. Now lunch pails and snack bags smell like milk. Best use: water. In a cooler or some other place where it's okay if it leaks clean water out. We use these daily. I do wonder if occassional users wouldn't experience the same leaking problem.

I ordered one of each color. The red is a different design at the top of the can by the tab opening.

This is a handy thing, so I bought two for friends! I think they have a lot of weight and would handle most liquids well in different situations. I'm a fan!

I love this because all my friends try to open it, so i have to show them how. The gray part on the top have popped off after i dropped it a few times, and i think that because of that, it may leak a tiny bit now.

Very cool gift

Use for all kinds of liquids but mostly coffee. Fun alternative to the typical coffee mug.

My kids are much too old for sippy cups, but a little clumsy for wide-open tumblers and glasses on the sofa. These are perfect for containing drinks in the family room, and avoiding spills.

My 12 and 14 year-old boys loved these new water bottles for their school lunches. They even washed and used them on the spot. Thank you for being so creative. Sure makes my life easier.

I use this for my sack lunches, it is well insulated, and seals well. Also, it is super cute.
