I love a good Chicago brand and I hate water bottles that leak! Who hasn’t experienced the coffee dribble down the shirt or the challenge of trying to unscrew your child’s sippy lid while doing two other things at once? Luckily Chicago company Contigo, developed an eco-friendly solution to solve these problems.
A patented AUTOSEAL technology which automatically seals between sips so no liquid slips out, was Contigo’s first innovation. Their 100% spill- and leak-proof design eliminates the possibility of spilling whether you are in the car, at the office or at home. With one hand, simply press the button to drink, and then release to seal again. AUTOSEAL technology is available in Contigo’s extensive line of travel mugs, water bottles and kids bottles.
They didn’t stop there. Next they developed their patent pending AUTOSPOUT technology. Understanding that many their customers prefer drinking from a straw, they made staying hydrated as simple as a touch of a button. AUTOSPOUT Water Bottles feature a pop-up spout for easy one-handed drinking making them perfect for the gym, in school, in the office or at home. AUTOSPOUT technology is available on a variety of adult and kids water bottles.
I (or I should say my 2 kids) tried the Contigo Autoseal Kids Scout Stainless Bottle and the Autospout Kids Striker Water Bottle and now they are their (and therefore my) favorites.
Perfect for juice, water or milk at school, the spill-proof Autoseal Kids Scout Stainless Bottle keeps 12 oz. of drinks cold up to 7 hours. The easy-to-grip bottle is made with BPA-free materials and features a one-touch AUTOSEAL lid that automatically seals between sips for easy mess-free drinking. The Scout bottle has a one-piece lid with no loose parts and is top-rack dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. My kids love it for soccer practice, so they are assured to have cold water for breaks.
It’s now possible for on-the-go kids and parents to travel spill free. The 14 oz. Autospout Kids Striker Water Bottle features a one-touch lid that pops-up for easy one-handed drinking from a straw. The spill-poof valve eliminates spills and leaks even when the spout is in the open position. The straw has a protective spout cover to keep dirt and germs out too. This 100% BPA-free water bottle is easy-to-grip and top-rack dishwasher safe for easy cleaning. Good thing because I am constantly washing them! I appreciate that the straw is attached. Nothing irritates me more than losing the straw! If you are a parent you know what it’s like to have a drawer full of loose straws that never seem to fit back into any lid.
There are also adult coffee travel mugs (with even a tea infuser option), adult water bottles and adult tumblers, but I did not try those. However, I trust they would be just as good as the kids’ varieties.
