Klean Kanteen Insulated Tumbler

When it comes to a cold pint of beer…er….whatever liquid you prefer to drink, the choices of holders of the beverage are nearly endless.  This begs the question of why Klean Kanteen decided to release the all new Klean Kanteen Insulated Tumbler.  Well, Just{elation} obviously decided it was time to find out.

At first sight on the shelf, the tumbler looks like a super swank stainless steel cup.  It appears to be somewhat heavy, but reaching for it and you quickly realize that it’s not as heavy as it appears.  The intricately laser etched logo stating that Klean Kanteen made it on the side is barely noticeable unless you’re looking for it, but when you do look at it, the logo is clean and classy, not so gaudy as some companies decide to sell you.  The clean lines and comfortable size scream to be tried out, so trying it was just what we planned to do.

On the way back, we picked up a 6-pack.  One bottle perfectly fit in the tumbler, and the incredible thing you notice when pouring is that the outside of the tumbler didn’t change temperatures.  This was definitely a change from the Klean Kanteen Steel Pints which you feel the level of liquid directly on the outside of the cup.  The top of the tumblers are clean rolled steel, fixing the top lip that some complained about on the Steel Pints.

The beverage stayed surprisingly cool in the mug as it was consumed at a casual pace, not too fast, not too slow.  One huge advantage over the Steel Pints was the fact that despite the incredible humidity that lingers in the air, there was never a hint of condensation plaguing the outside of the tumbler!

Ok, so it works wonderfully on cold beverages, but hey, that’s not enough to keep Just{elation} happy, is it?  No.  Onward you must go to hot beverages.  So it sat, unwashed from the night’s enjoyable evening…and in the morning it simply got rinsed out.  Was it cleaned?  No, as a guy I don’t clean much of anything!  It did get rinsed out twice though, so I’m sure the germs all left in the process.  Filled with early morning coffee to ensure a rude wake-me-up happened, not a hint of the evening’s beverage lingered…it tasted like a clean pure cup of coffee, and the insulated tumbler kept the coffee hot for longer than the average ceramic mug does.  It was somewhat nice to not use a handle while consuming hot coffee, and not being concerned grabbing the side of the cup as it wasn’t hot at all.  Very well done Klean Kanteen!

Ok, fair is fair, gotta leave a little coffee in there for a few hours…let it “marinade” a little, right?  So in the afternoon it was time to re-hydrate finally.  So out the leftover coffee went, a quick rinse again and presto, it was ready for ice water!  Didn’t even taste the coffee.  Gotta admit, impressed doesn’t describe it!

Klean Kanteen made a great product here.  Made responsibly with 18/8 Stainless Steel, there is little to no doubt that these will be in use for many many years.  Do note that they recommend you actually wash the cup…by hand rather than in the dishwasher.  No problem…I don’t even have a dishwasher anyway.  I love that they note on the packaging that the tumblers are BPA Free…last I checked BPA was only found in plastic products, right?

So the long term testing begins.  Updates on these fine products to come soon!
