I have something a little different for you today! About 4 months ago I started my first ever diet. The first thing I cut out when preparing to diet (yes, I had to prepare) was soda. I started sticking to just water. In doing so, I needed to be able to carry my water in a bottle that stayed cold longer than others. Once water isn’t cold anymore, I have issues drinking it.
This is where Glasstics Water Bottle comes in.
I received a Glasstics Water Bottle in blue. This is a fairly easy to use bottle that has a plastic outer casing and a glass cylinder inside. This keeps drinks colder longer.
Lets look at the design a little closer
This is the mouth of the bottle. It’s a little awkward for me to use. It’s doable, I managed, but it wasn’t comfortable entirely. Had the opening been closer to the edge it probably would have been a bit better for me.
The lid also has a “lock” on it so it doesn’t open up accidentally in transit. To open, you just flip it to unlocked and pop the top up. Pretty simple!
There are 2 ways you can clean the Glasstic Water Bottle. Either wash it in the sink with hot soapy water and a bottle brush, or the way I prefer… in the dishwasher! Taking this apart for cleaning was REALLY easy. I just unscrewed the bottom and the top blue pieces and slid the inner glass cylinder out of the plastic casing. I placed all 4 pieces in the top rack of my dishwasher, and an hour or so later, I had a clean set ready to go.
This is one aspect of the bottle I wasn’t thrilled with. The handle for carrying the bottle just didn’t feel right. It wasn’t a bad design, but it wasn’t full comfortable for my hands. The bottle itself is a little on the heavier side, so it might just be the bulk of a full bottle with this type of carrying mechanism, but I was finding myself not reaching for it as much knowing how I would need to carry it around, as it was too large to just pop in my small purse.
I got quite a bit of use out of the Glasstic Water Bottle over the last month. It’s easy to clean, fast to assemble and it really does keep drinks cold for a MUCH longer period of time than a standard bottle does. From the different liquids I tried, I noticed the drinks just tasted better in my Glasstic Water Bottle, and that’s probably due to the fact that it’s being stored in glass instead of plastic. It is a little heavy and the handle isn’t the most convenient for me, but overall, I will still use it a lot.
Should the glass inside break, it is contained within the plastic outer shell, so you shouldn’t need to worry about a horrible cleanup. You would just need to let the liquid drain in a sink, then carefully remove the glass into a garbage can. Glasstic will replace the glass insert for $7.99 (which covers shipping and handling). I did drop this at least 4 times, if not more – and the glass stayed well protected. What can I say? I’m a klutz!
