Klean Kanteen's New Stainless Steel Baby Bottles! And a Giveaway!
02.13.12 Klean Kanteen's New Stainless Steel Baby Bottles! And a Giveaway!
For those of you in the baby bottle market, Klean Kanteen has introduced new stainless steel baby bottles to their Kid Kanteen line. And we have a set of 2 bottles (5 oz. and 9 oz.) to send to a lucky baby.
When choosing a baby bottle, the material matters. Some parents wonder why stainless steel is better than aluminum. Or why BPA-free plastic bottles aren't safe enough. Well, aluminum has to be lined with something to make sure the contents are safe for drinking. That "something" is usually a baked on epoxy containing BPA.
What is stainless steel and why use it?
Stainless steel is an iron-containing alloy made from some of the basic elements found on earth: iron ore, chromium, silicon, nickel, carbon, nitrogen, and manganese. Properties of the final alloy are tailored by varying amounts of these elements. There are many (more than 57) stainless steels recognized as standard alloys on the market. Klean Kanteens are constructed from high quality sanitary grade 304 stainless steel which has a low nickel content. Stainless steel has excellent resistance to stain or rust due to its chromium content, making it a material of choice among the food processing, dairy and brewery industries.
Stainless steel is easy to clean, durable, inert and sanitary. Klean Kanteens are constructed of high quality, sanitary grade (18/8) 304 stainless steel. 304 has a low nickel content and is preferred by breweries and dairies and parents.
Klean Kanteen's stainless steel baby bottles are also made to perform well, so that you don't have to replace it. The 5 oz. bottle is appropriate for babies aged 0-6 months with a slow flow feature. The 9 oz. bottle is designed for the next stage of babies aged 6+months. In addition to being free of BPA, lead, phthalates and other toxins, here are some fabulous features:
- Made from high quality, food grade 18/8 stainless steel.
- Double-venting system: baby swallows liquid, not air which helps to reduce colic.
- Medical grade silicone nipple.
- Easy to read embossed marks for measuring ounces/milliliters (inside and out).
- Compatible with all Klean Kanteen wide mouth caps.
- Dishwasher safe
For the ultimate leakproof bottle, use in combination with Klean Kanteen's stainless wide loop cap, while on-the-go. The wide loop cap has stainless steel on the inside of the cap, creating a 100% stainless interior. This cap also fits all Klean Kanteen wide mouth bottles.
