Choosing the Best Stainless Steel Water Bottles
For starters, understand that you’re going to want more than one. You’ll need one for every member of the household, then maybe 1-2 more for hiking trips, guests, replacements for a lost or dirty bottle or just to have on hand.
These reusable water bottles will cost a little bit more, in terms of initial investment, but they pay for themselves very, very quickly. However, you might be looking at the price of a stainless steel bottle compared to a commonly found reusable plastic water bottle and be tempted to pick up the cheap plastic version at the store. Let’s look at why that’s not a good idea:
- Stainless steel lasts longer: Reusable plastic wears out too fast. It gets dropped and cracked easily, is prone to damage by heat, or sun and can be scratched easily. As soon as plastic shows any signs of wear it’s no longer safe to use. But steel is durable, and doesn’t wear out over time, making it one of the ways you can reduce your grocery budget.
- Stainless steel is healthier: Plastic contains chemicals, such as BPA mentioned above, which is known to cause severe health risks even in very small ‘doses’. These chemicals are leached all the time (by off-gasing) but most especially anytime they are in the heat, like being left in the car. Stainless steel? Totally safe, no risk of leaching or off-gasing.
Be aware, however, that just because the bottle is metal, does not make it stainless steel.
Many metal water bottles, even popular companies such as SIGG, are actually aluminum, which has been linked to diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Because you are not suppose to use aluminum in food grade products, it must come with a plastic liner, which can contain BPA and/or other harmful chemicals.
Unlike aluminum, stainless steel will need no liner to keep you safe and healthy, so look for smooth metal inside your bottle. You can still find an insulated stainless steel water bottle; just make sure the inner liner is also stainless steel.
Quality stainless steel water bottles will also list the material used on the bottle. Look for #304 or 18/8 food grade stainless steel. Skip anything else.
