Things to consider when selecting a travel mug...

A Different Approach Considering a Travel Mug's Benefits and Features

When you read travel mug reviews they most often evaluate the mugs brand new... right out of the box or after a week or two of use. But now consider your own experience with travel mugs. How would you evaluate those travel mugs after 90 days vs. "right out of the box"? So I'll explain the long-term benefits of using Klean Kanteen Wide Bottles with the new Café Cap 2.0.

Your coffee, tea and cold drinks will smell and taste great for as long as you own your Klean Kanteen.

Why would I start with this? Isn't it more important to consider how well it insulates, how easy it is to use, or fits in a cup holder first? Well you'll see below that Klean Kanteens do all these things superbly. But nothing else matters if the coffee, tea or whatever the contents smells or tastes funky. I personally hate that. You hold travel mug right up to your nose and you grab a full whiff of that putrid odor and you just want to throw the coffee and the mug right out the window. And other people must agree because there are plenty of websites explaining how to "de-funk" travel mugs. Here's why Klean Kanteens keep your beverages odor-free and delicious...
  • Klean Kanteens are made from 18/8 food grade stainless steel which does not impart any odors or tastes into the contents of the bottle.
  • Café Cap 2.0 is BPA-free polypropylene (pp#5) which is non-porous and will not retain or impart any odors or tastes and uses a silicon seal that won't absorb odors and tastes like rubber seals. 
  • "Nooks and crannies" are where food particles can become trapped... where fungus and bacteria can grow... and the reason why after awhile travel mugs smell bad and taste bad. Klean Kanteen's approach to "nooks and crannies" is to simply eliminate them entirely. Here's how...
    • The interior of the bottle is electro-polished to eliminate any microscopic irregularities that traces of food might cling to.
    • Threads a smooth and wide.
    • The cap totally and quickly disassembles into five easy to reassemble parts... none of which individually have "nooks and crannies". Some competing travel mugs emphasize easy access to "nooks and crannies" for cleaning. But look at the closeups of those mechanisms in the caps when exposed and draw your own conclusions regarding just how thoroughly you're going to be able to clean them.

      Note: Some competitors argue that "parts" could be lost in the dishwasher. You would place them in a basket in the dishwasher but I suppose they could somehow come out. But in the case of Klean Kanteen's Café Cap 2.0 no part is small enough that it wouldn't simply be caught by the screen at the bottom of the dishwasher and therefore not be lost. I just wash mine under the sink... it takes a minute.


The double-wall vacuum insulated design is extremely effective.

Ease of Use

  • It's easy to hold with one hand.
  • Fits in most cup holders.
  • Twist On/Off Valve can be operated with one hand. I usually turn it while it's in the cup holder. Here there is an advantage with some of the competition where a button opens and closes the valve. You push to drink and when you release the bottle is totally sealed. But I again emphasize this advantage is less important if you later funky odors and tastes if you can't thoroughly clean valve mechanism. I also think the Klean Kanteen approach is far more durable. Compare them... you be the judge.
  • There is no easier bottle to keep clean.
  • Full size ice cubes fit through the wide opening.
  • The 12oz. and 16oz. sizes will fit under most K-Cup coffee makers if the drain base is removed.

Comfort and Safety

  • The mug is comfortable to hold because the exterior remains at a comfortable temperature and doesn't sweat.
  • Café Cap 2.0 remains cool and won't burn your lips.
  • It's splash-proof.


  • The gauge of the 18/8 stainless steel used is the perfect balance of weight and durability.
  • The Café Cap 2.0 and all five component parts are robust and will deliver years of service.


  • Klean Kanteen Insulated Wide Bottles are versatile because they can be used as insulated food containers, thermoses and travel mugs. This makes them an even better investment.
  • You don't have to be traveling to use your Klean Kanteen. It's a great everyday coffee mug for use around the house as well.

Leak-Proof Café Cap 2.0The new Café Cap 2.0 makes a great insulated bottle even better...
  • The prior Café wasn't leak-proof. So you had to use the stainless loop cap to transport it in your lunch bag or backpack. Then you had to switch to the Café cap when you wanted to actually drink your coffee. Now you simply use the leak-proof Café cap.
  • There are some other vendors that offer a leak-proof cap. But at least the ones I'm familiar with don't totally dis assemble for cleaning and often have lots of parts. That's a big problem because fungus and mold will grow and in any crevices you can't totally clean and the cap starts to smell funky, affects the taste of the beverage or food and is generally unhealthy. Klean Kanteen's Café Cap quickly disassembles into five easy to clean and reassemble parts.
  • The Café Cap 2.0 is now the standard cap when you buy a Kleen Kanteen Wide-Mouth Insulated Bottle. They cost a little more but it's totally worth the price.
Keeps: 12oz 16oz 20oz
Hot Food or Beverages Hot up to 8 hrs. 10 hrs. 14 hrs.
Iced Drinks Cold up to 24 hrs. 30 hrs. 40 hrs.

Can you put insulated Klean Kanteen bottles in the dishwasher?

No. You should wash them by hand.

What's the most popular size?

The 16oz 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.
