Editor’s note: For awhile now, I have been publishing product reviews as a series called “5 ‘Green’ Products“. Now product reviews will be posted daily and then assembled into a round-up on the weekend. We’ll see how the change goes!
Keepin’ Fresh Kids Stainless Drinking Cup
Parents should avoid feeding their children out of any plastic containers, including BPA-free ones, as they leach chemicals that are harmful to health. Innobaby has developed a stainless steel cup that is BPA, phthalate, PVC, and lead-free.
It’s Practical & Versatile!
- BPA free protective sleeve reduces temperature transfers to keep little hands from hot or cold drinks, keep contents fresher by minimizing temperature changes, and prevent dents to stainless
- Perfect portion stainless tumbler is easy-to-wash with its removable wide-mouth design. Available in 8 & 12 oz sizes for perfectly portioned beverages and more
- Locking lid with airtight silicone ring seals in the freshness and preserves the fresh taste to satisfy all taste buds
- 100% silicone straw is removable and durable
- 100% silicone disc secures to bottom of the flip top cap to prevent leaks when using as a spout cup (do not combine with straw)
- Leak-proof Flip Top Cap: snap close cap for airtight and leak-free travel
- Easy Flow Vent allows easier liquid flow
- Removable Shaker: easily break down powder mix while also working as ice stopper
- Freezer Safe
- BPA-, Phthalates-, PVC-, Lead Free
I’m still a big fan of the Klean Kanteen Sippy Cup, which unfortunately is made in China. Innobaby products are made in South Korea. The Klean Kanteen is quite simple in comparison to all of the parts of the Innobaby, and I am not sure how these parts will hold up over time or how hard they will be to clean if left with rotting chocolate milk in them for days forgotten in the hot car. The parts are all dishwasher safe on the top rack, but handwashing is recommended.
Would I buy this product? Probably not. It has too many parts. I like that it is all silicone and stainless steel and the outer shell protects hands from hot or cold beverages, but I can see losing parts or scrambling to put it together while my child is impatiently waiting for a drink. It is also more expensive than the Klean Kanteen ($18 versus $13). We still use five-year-old Klean Kanteen sippys, and it is really easy to get replacement parts for them.
