When the whole BPA=bad trend started, I traded in my plastic water bottles for stainless steel. That didn’t last long because I hate the metallic flavor even lined stainless bottles add to the water. Then I noticed that companies were starting to come out with glass water bottles so I gave them a try. The first generation broke too easily, so I was pleased when companies started adding silicon sleeves to make them more sturdy.
I won’t name names, but I spent way too much on glass water bottles with silicon sleeves but leaky caps. So I was really excited to see that Aquasana has a reasonably priced reusable glass water bottle with a silicon sleeve in a variety of pretty colors. I decided to give one a try.
After the first day, I decided I was a big fan of my Aquasana Glass Bottle with Silicone Sleeve and Cap. I really like the 18 oz size, and it’s the right diameter to fit in my car’s drink holder. The mouth size is big enough to get a bottle brush in for cleaning, but not so big that the water sloshes out when I gulp it down. They are dishwasher safe and you can use them with hot liquids. I like that the silicone sleeve keeps my tea warm while keeping my hands insulated from the heat.
I’m a little worried about the cap, because it seems a little flimsy compared to other ones I’ve seen. For regular use I’m sure it’s fine, but if you stepped on it, it would totally break. At least they sell replacement caps and the size is standard, so I’m not too worried (I randomly tried a cap from a glass kombucha bottle and it fit perfectly). Plus, at $9.99 a bottle, I can buy two bottles for the price of one from the leading competitor.
Aquasana has a wide range of water filters for your house, too. Our latest water report said there is a high level of Arsenic in the drinking water, so I’m thinking a filter for the whole house would be nice. Or, at least for the kitchen sink. They’re having a big sale for the month of July, so now would be a great time to try it out!
