After my mishap with Frank Green‘s SmartCup™, Frank Green got in touch and sent me a new replacement SmartCup™, as well as their new SmartBottle™. I’ve been using both the last couple of weeks and it’s official – I love their SmartBottle™ and here’s why.
This 800ml bottle has a recyclable copolyester body. The copolyester is a clear hard plastic, which feels sturdy in the hand and feels very lightweight. It is easy to see at a glance how much I’ve drunk and when it needs refilling.
The polypropylenelid looks exactly the same as their SmartCup™, with its one handed, push button in a variety of contemporary colours. The drinking hole (the large one) flows well without spilling and doesn’t leave any weird plastic tastes in your mouth.
Other reasons why I love it:
- BPA free
- Fit in standard bottle holders in our car
- Dishwasher safe
- Recyclable at end of life
Out of curiosity, I compared the lids of the new Frank Green‘s SmartCup™ and SmartBottle™ with the older SmartCup™ lid. The only notable difference is the holes on the underside, but that does not have a noticable effect on the flow.
One of my initial issues was cleaning the lid. If you’ve read the recent online outrage by parents over mould in sippy cup lids, you can understand my concern. Frank Green‘s patented spill resistant lid is actually really easy to pull apart to ensure you clean everything (especially if you have milk in your beverages) and reassemble.
Here’s a little video I made that shows you how to put all the lid components back together.
