Half of all campers interviewed said that their “love of the outdoors” is what sparked their interest in camping.
If you’re the outdoorsy type, you‘re aware of the importance of highly-durable hard coolers and performance drinkware. From knee-deep mud to harsh temperatures and salty ocean water, you depend on gear that can go the distance.
Are you looking at Engel’s stainless steel vacuum insulated tumblers and wondering what all the fuss is about? If so, then look no further than this article to find out why stainless steel tumblers are the only way to go for your adventures.
Lasts a Lifetime
Did you know that stainless steel is virtually indestructible?
Stainless steel has long-life properties inherent in it and these properties don’t diminish over time or with repeated use. It also features an excellent strength-to-weight ratio, meaning that even very light steel is still very strong, especially when you compare it to alternatives like different grades of aluminum, polystyrene, plastics, or glass.
In fact, glass and ceramic containers (which are popular alternatives to steel) are so unstable that they’re actually banned in many venues and events for health and safety reasons. Meanwhile, aluminum is susceptible to corrosion and pinhole leaks and bottles made with it typically have interior linings that can disintegrate over time. Petroleum-based plastics easily crack and degrade with repeated uses, washing, and exposure.
It’s a simple fact that, when it comes to longevity, Engel stainless steel vacuum insulated tumblers are the best.
Easy to Clean and Maintain
Unlike some materials, stainless steel is incredibly easy to clean. It also demonstrates superb resistance to stains, corrosion, and rust. And thanks to Engel’s wide-mouthed openings, these vacuum insulated tumblers are even easier to use and wash than other options, whether you do your dishes by hand or run them through a dishwasher.
With just a little love and care, Engel vacuum insulated tumblers will stand the test of time and look great doing it.
Safest Material for Drinking
Recent discoveries regarding toxic chemicals in drinkware, such as BPA and Phthalates, have set the entire health community buzzing. These toxins are typically found in plastic containers, as well as in the lining of many aluminum bottles.
This has made stainless steel the best option for the health-conscious outdoorsman. Steel is an alloy that’s composed of all-natural elements, therefore it’s non-toxic and free of nasty elements like BPA, lead, and zinc. These all can lead to conditions like cancer and endocrine disruption.
Thanks to its inherent antibacterial and hygienic properties, stainless steel has been widely used in the food and medical industries for years, even in the most critical of sanitary environments. Stainless steel is also non-reactive to acidic beverages and it offers a clean, neutral taste that won’t affect the smell or flavor of your drinks.
Best for the Planet
Every year, roughly 50 billion plastic cups and 38 million plastic bottles are thrown away in landfills. That’s not even counting the billions more disposable cups made of plastic, paper, and styrofoam that are also thrown away each year. This garbage ends up in the waterways, oceans, and soil that all of earth’s creatures — ourselves included — depend on to survive.
On the other hand, stainless steel tumblers are designed to stay out of the landfills. They can be reused indefinitely, resold, or inherited and are fully recyclable at the end of their useful lifespan. After just seven months of average use, stainless steel containers beat all other types in terms of their environmental impact.
In fact, just one person using an Engel tumbler through the course of its lifespan will prevent thousands of disposable containers from ever entering landfills.
Furthermore, stainless steel is one of the most-recycled materials in the world, even more than paper and glass. Once you no longer want your stainless steel tumbler, it can be completely recycled without degradation. This means natural resources are preserved, as the same materials are used and reused throughout the production chain.
Stainless steel tumblers aren’t just best for us — they’re best for the environment too.
