Which bottles are suitable for on the go, what can you take water or juices with you? GIGA gives an overview of drinking containers, names test winners and bestsellers.
A bottle should always be in your pocket or backpack – regardless of whether you’re sitting on the train for two hours, strolling through the pedestrian zone for a morning or cycling to the lake. Because most people tend to drink too little rather than too much.
Not everyone wants to use returnable bottles from the supermarket, especially since one-way bottles shouldn’t be used several times: There is a suspicion that microplastics and / or plasticizers can migrate into the drink over time. If you like to fill up your drinking container at the tap, if you want a special closure, if you want a chic bottle, check out the following recommendations:
Test winner metal bottle: Sigg Slow Moon Dinos
The Austrian consumer magazine Konsument, comparable to the Stiftung Warentest in Germany, placed the Sigg Slow Moon Dinos 400 ml on the podium under the metal bottles in April 2020.
Sigg, that is the very popular manufacturer from Switzerland. This model is a children’s bottle that is also available with other motifs. If you search, you will find similar single-colored Sigg bottles – you can choose the color on Amazon. A special feature is the large closure with hygienic cap and screw cap. According to the manufacturer, the container is guaranteed to be leak-proof and the aluminum has a stable inner coating.
Test winner plastic bottle I: Tupperware EcoEasy
Among the plastic bottles, the EcoEasy bottle (500 ml) from Tupperware scored highly with consumers. The colors are semi-transparent, different sizes and closures are available. The water bottle should be better placed in bags and rucksacks: Consumers found that the test model (with a snap fastener) did not hold 100 percent airtight. Nevertheless, the Tupperware was the test winner in its category. No pollutants were found.
Test winner plastic bottle II: Aladdin Active Hydration
Öko-Test (04/2019) also examined the drinking bottles in the test for pollutants. But the behavior in practice was also put to the test. The test winner was the Aladdin Active Hydration bottle (800 ml).
The drinking cap can be folded in with one hand and closes leak-proof. If you unscrew the lid, you can easily clean the bottle through the large opening. The Aladdin Active Hydration is also dishwasher safe.
Summer, sun, sunshine – and this here:
Amazon bestseller: 720 ° DGREE drinking bottle
Another model is represented several times in the top 10 bestsellers on Amazon, currently also in first place: the 720 ° DGREE drinking bottle. This 1 liter bottle is available in countless colors.
The water bottle is distinguished by two special features: First, the – as the manufacturer calls it – the anti-gluck drinking opening, for an “accurate, constant drinking flow”. Second, the fruit insert, in which you can add fruits or herbs for a change in taste. My tip, always a good choice in the water: a few slices of ginger!
