We all know that staying well hydrated is a big deal and something which we shouldn’t forget about especially as summer is fully upon us now. That said, despite the fact that I clearly posses this knowledge, I very often forget to drink. I feel thirsty I wonder downstairs planning to get a drink and then… I get distracted. Time passes by and I still didn’t get myself that drink of water… I feel a bit tired (as I didn’t really drink) so I get a coffee (bad choice) and so on and so on… Ever since the lovely people at OXO sent me a twist top bottle my drinking routine has become much better. Maybe because the bottle is quite big, so it can hold more water, maybe because it has a top so no dust, hair or fly’s can get into my drink or maybe because it has a straw, which makes it more fun… not sure what the reason really is and it doesn’t really matter, but the fact is that my OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle is in use every day, all day.
I want to share with you the OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle description from the website, so you can have a bit better understanding what I am talking about.
Simplify sipping with the OXO Good Grips 24 oz Twist Top Bottle. The large opening makes filling, cleaning and adding ice easy. The 24 oz Twist Top Bottle features a soft, non-slip carrying loop that is angled downwards for a natural, comfortable hold and is perfect for attaching to backpacks. Convenient measurement markings help track how much you’re drinking and can be used as a reference when adding supplements. The Bottle fits in most car and exercise machine cup holders and the soft, flexible straw is easy to drink from while on the move. The twist-open lid keeps the straw covered and clean, and prevents spills when not in use.

Now it will be easier for me to explain what I like about the bottle.
First the bottle is blue, it might be a silly reason for some but I like the colour blue and I like things to be colour coordinated so this works out for me perfectly.
Secondly the twist top makes it secure – leak and spill proof – all you have to do it to twist the top in order to bend the straw and pinch it closed.
Third it has a wide opening, which makes it so much easier to fill with ice or thick drinks like milk shakes or fruit smoothies full of bits.
And last but not least it has a fantastic non slip handle for caring it around. The handle is fairly small which is great as it doesn’t make the bottle too bulky.
Oh and I almost forgot… you can easily pull it to pieces so keeping it clean is not a problem.
Is there something I do not like about it?
Actually yes, there is one thing which I would love to see fixed or corrected. OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle has some lovely measuring marks – they are both in ml and oz but they only go up to 500ml / 16oz and bottle itself can hold up to 710ml / 24oz. It might not be a big problem but sometimes it is good to know exactly how much fluid we consume, so an enlarged scale of markings would come in very handy.
In UK this bottle is sold in blue only and it has a RRP of £10.
I think OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle represents great value for money. It is well made, the design is simple yet very practical and it is BPA free, so you really don’t have to worry about drinking the contents if left in a car in a heat wave.
So if you are on the market for a new water bottle I would highly recommend OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle.
OXO Good Grips Twist Top Bottle gets my approval and I am linking it into Tried and Tested.
