Review – OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle

OXO Good Grips Twist Top BottleWe all know that staying well hydrated is a big deal and something which we shouldn’t forget about especially as summer is fully upon us now. That said, despite the fact that I clearly posses this knowledge, I very often forget to drink. I feel thirsty I wonder downstairs planning to get a drink and then… I get distracted. Time passes by and I still didn’t get myself that drink of water… I feel a bit tired (as I didn’t really drink) so I get a coffee (bad choice) and so on and so on… Ever since the lovely people at OXO sent me a twist top bottle my drinking routine has become much better. Maybe because the bottle is quite big, so it can hold more water, maybe because it has a top so no dust, hair or fly’s can get into my drink or maybe because it has a straw, which makes it more fun… not sure what the reason really is and it doesn’t really matter, but the fact is that my OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle is in use every day, all day.

I want to share with you the OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle description from the website, so you can have a bit better understanding what I am talking about.

OVERVIEW

Simplify sipping with the OXO Good Grips 24 oz Twist Top Bottle. The large opening makes filling, cleaning and adding ice easy. The 24 oz Twist Top Bottle features a soft, non-slip carrying loop that is angled downwards for a natural, comfortable hold and is perfect for attaching to backpacks. Convenient measurement markings help track how much you’re drinking and can be used as a reference when adding supplements. The Bottle fits in most car and exercise machine cup holders and the soft, flexible straw is easy to drink from while on the move. The twist-open lid keeps the straw covered and clean, and prevents spills when not in use.

Now it will be easier for me to explain what I like about the bottle.

First the bottle is blue, it might be a silly reason for some but I like the colour blue and I like things to be colour coordinated so this works out for me perfectly.

Secondly the twist top makes it secure – leak and spill proof – all you have to do it to twist the top in order to bend the straw and pinch it closed.

Third it has a wide opening, which makes it so much easier to fill with ice or thick drinks like milk shakes or fruit smoothies full of bits.

And last but not least it has a fantastic non slip handle for caring it around. The handle is fairly small which is great as it doesn’t make the bottle too bulky.

Oh and I almost forgot… you can easily pull it to pieces so keeping it clean is not a problem.

Is there something I do not like about it?

Actually yes, there is one thing which I would love to see fixed or corrected. OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle has some lovely measuring marks – they are both in ml and oz but they only go up to 500ml / 16oz and bottle itself can hold up to 710ml / 24oz. It might not be a big problem but sometimes it is good to know exactly how much fluid we consume, so an enlarged scale of markings would come in very handy.

In UK this bottle is sold in blue only and it has a RRP of £10.

I think OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle represents great value for money. It is well made, the design is simple yet very practical and it is BPA free, so you really don’t have to worry about drinking the contents if left in a car in a heat wave.

So if you are on the market for a new water bottle I would highly recommend OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle.

OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle gets my approval and I am linking it into Tried and Tested.

  1. That looks really good! I know I could definitely do with one of them!

  2. I could sure use one of those for when I’m driving around! I wonder is it is sold in the US? I guess I will have to go check.

  3. This looks so useful, especially if it doesn’t leak x

  4. I like that it has a straw, it happened so many times that I’ve got a shower when I used a common bottle while driving a car… and it’s nearly impossible to get out the smell of a rotten milk shake from your seats :O)

  5. That looks fab! I really need to drink more fluids during the day x

  6. That looks like a good handy sized drink bottle, love the carrying handle #triedtested

  7. This is a really nice bottle to have when traveling. I love that the straw is on the side and not on the top of the lid.

  8. I’m like you in that I’m dreadful at getting myself drinks during the day. I’ve bought OXO products before and reviewed some others and they do make really good quality items.

  9. This sounds like a great purchase. Really helpful review

  10. I need something like this to get me drinking enough water through the day.

  11. I never drink enough – I know I should drink more, but I just….don’t. Love this bottle, maybe if I carried it around I would be encouraged to drink more? Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  12. This looks fabulous and great for adults……..want one for my car now

  13. looks like a great bottle for walking and driving, i even didnt think about it until i saw your picture of the bottle in the car, i try to drink loads of water but we currently use just a standard bottle

  14. That sounds like a great bottle and anything that encourages drinking water is good in my book.

  15. Looks like a great bottle. I quite like the straw, as it seems a bit less uncoath than drinking directly out of the top.

  16. I drink a lot of water and sweet tea. This would be a great addition to my other drinking cups. I like that it would work in my car.

  17. My husband could really use this! He is driving a lot and always spills something.

  18. Looks like something I could pick up in the USA – I’d rather have a different colour! I like the way it keeps the straw in place

  19. This looks super convenient, specially for road trips.

  20. I love to drink water especially this hot summer months. I take water everywhere too, this is a great water bottle. I love it.

  21. What a great idea – I love that its BPA free x

  22. Looks like a great bottle, perfect for school

  23. I keep saying that I will never buy another water bottle but this looks really go so I may be tempted. Great review.

  24. I love oxo products. They do a tots range which is perfect for those with little ones http://www.mummy2monkeys.co.uk
