Water Bottle


Before I review any gadget, I need my cup o’ Joe. There’s nothing like a piping hot cup of coffee to get the creative juices flowing. So it’s particularly fitting that I have the opportunity to review the Contigo Randolph stainless steel travel mug. While most travel mugs are tumblers without handles, the Randolph mug [...]

Drinking plenty of water everyday is a pretty basic way to stay healthy and feel good.  I have known this for years, and I still can't manage to drink the recommended amount on a daily basis.  There is hope for me.  HidrateMe begins shipping in December of this year. It's a 24 oz. smart water bottle that, when [...]

My dog, Teddy, seems to shed year round.  That means those darn dog hairs get everywhere, even in his water bowl.  He won't drink water with hair in it, and it's a pain trying to make sure his water meets his standards so he'll drink enough during the day.  And that's with me here with [...]

I love tea. Hot tea and iced teas are what I drink 99% of the time. When I'm home and at work, I drink from ceramic or glass mugs, neither of which are convenient to use when I need to be mobile like walking to and from meetings, etc. The MIU COLOR glass water bottle [...]

If, like me, you're trying to drink more water, but you get tired of plain water all the time, adding some flavoring can make the water more palatable.  Of course, they sell little bottles of water enhancers now that can add fruit flavoring, but they seem to be all artificial color, flavors, and sweeteners.  The Basily Infuser [...]

You can use any water bottle to keep your water with you, but most of them don't do anything to control the temperature of the beverage.  The S'well Bottle can do both.  It is made of 18/8 double-walled stainless steel, which is non-toxic, non-leaching, and BPA free.  As mentioned, it's double-walled, so it's insulated and [...]

Juice boxes are convenient for packing in a child's lunch or for taking along on trips, but what they contain probably isn't your first pick for feeding to your child.  Those juice boxes often contain beverages that are more sugar than anything else, so they aren't nutritious.  Those flimsy cardboard boxes that can seem like [...]

Most of our appliances communicate with us now, so it was only a matter of time before our dinnerware did too.

We all know that we should be drinking more water, but it can be tough to accomplish that task when your tap water tastes like...well, tap water. I don't know about the rest of you, but I prefer the taste of bottled water over tap water, which can often have a funky flavor. Bottled water [...]

I like the taste of bottled water much more than the taste of the water that comes out of a tap. But buying bottled water is both expensive and wasteful due to all the plastic. Enter the Eau Good water bottle designed by European design firm Black and Blum. The Eau Good is a BPA [...]
