Do Insulated Wide Bottles also come with the Stainless Steel Loop Cap?
No. The new Café Cap is the only cap included with a new Insulated Wide Bottle. That's because the new Café Cap is leak-proof and therefore multipurpose. You really don't need another cap to enjoy the full versatility of your Klean Kanteen.
Is the Stainless Steel Loop Cap obsolete?
No. The new Café is easy to clean but not as easy as the Stainless Loop Cap. So if you often use your bottle for example soup you would probably want to purchase a Stainless Loop Cap. Again, you wouldn't have to. The Café Cap will serve the purpose. The Loop Cap would simply be a quicker cleanup.
Can you put insulated Klean Kanteen bottles in the dishwasher?

What's the most popular size?
The 16 oz seems to be the most popular. But it really depends upon how you want to use yours. Click the different size tabs to find out the recommended uses for each size.
Does the paint on colored bottles chip or scratch?
The paint is tough and durable. But any painted surface will chip or scratch if you drop it on the sidewalk or a rock. Being a Klutz myself I always recommend the Brushed Stainless finish. It will look the best over time. But those colors definitely look great!
Is there lead in the paint used for colored Klean Kanteen bottles?
No. It's an acrylic paint that contains no toxins or lead. Even so, Klean Kanteen recommends the Brushed Stainless bottles if small children will be using them just to be double safe.
Can you put an insulated Klean Kanteen bottle on the stove?
Can you use an insulated Klean Kanteen bottle over an open fire?
I saw a review on another website claiming that the quality of Klean Kanteen bottles has decreased. Is this true?
No. There are very few legitimate negative reviews of Klean Kanteen bottles. Some are written by competing bottle manufacturers. I saw one where the reviewer said a magnet would stick to the bottle. Stainless steel is not magnetic. Magnets do not stick to legitimate Klean Kanteen bottles... at least every one that I've tested since reading that review. Magnets probably do stick to counterfeit Klean Kanteen bottles. So when you see unbelievably low prices online, let common sense be your guide because something is wrong.
