A formidable opponent in the tumbler industry. – Greatness Lines’ 30 oz. Tumblers Value Pack.



Here is another cup that has entered the Stainless tumbler arena. I like how strong it came out to the market. It arrived with all the bells and whistles. I have the original 30oz Yeti Tumbler, and I love it. We also have quite a few of the competitors now, lol. Let me tell you, I compare them all to the Yeti, and against each other. I am very picky now, and demand that my ice not melt quickly. I always have a glass filled to the top with ice, and then I add my drink. With my constant anaphylactic reactions, I always have a swollen and raw throat. An icy drink all day, and I mean 24/7, really helps. So, I do not hold back if the cup doesn’t live up to my expectations. I am very, very happy to say, that this cup does indeed, keep my ice, ice, for a long time. I can take my cup, fill it with ice to the top, pour in room temperature soda, and then sip on it, like I usually do. When I go to refill it, I only have to add a couple cubes to keep it filled to the top with ice, lol. The cup measures out at 4” in diameter, at the top, and 8” tall to the top of the lid. It is just slightly more narrow at the top than my Yeti. I have a black carry handle, and it fits this tumbler by Greatness Line, but it just fits. It slides up to almost the top of the cup. But, the accessory is still quite usable and I am using it. Leaving my cup sit over night with ice and water, I still had a lot of ice left in the cup in the morning. It really works like my Yeti, so I am very happy with it. It’s made well. The tops seal very well. I love the straw and extra top that come with the cup. The stainless steel straw is thick and durable and long enough to really fit the cup. The diameter is large enough too, for a smoothie. The You can never really feel the temp of the drink inside of it, when holding it. It is always a comfortable temperature to hold. It is made out of 18/8 stainless steel. It will fit into my cup holders in my Honda. I’m sure due to the size, it might not fit into some. I have large cup holders in mine, fortunately. I really like everything about this complete set. You really can’t beat the price it’s at. Currently it’s at $19.95 for everything, which is great. It’s a formidable opponent in the tumbler arena.

Green with Envy? – Simple Modern Vacuum Insulated 20oz Cruiser Tumbler with Lid.



green tumbler 1We have entered the age of the stainless steel tumbler, lol. They are popping up everywhere and from anyone, it seems. I love that too! These cups are amazing, amazing, amazing. We all use them daily in my household. They truly keep the cold drinks colder, longer, and the hot drinks, hotter, longer. I only have boring silver in my home though. So, I was beyond excited to be able to review this awesome bright green 20oz tumbler from Simply Modern on Amazon. I ordered the Candy Apple Green, but they do have it available in plain stainless steel, and 7 other powder coated colors. The finish of my green color is vivid, and smooth to the touch. So far so good with durability. The tumbler is constructed out of the 18/8 Stainless Steel I am used to seeing with these type of tumblers. The top does create a very tight seal, which is important for the insulation factor. It has the small mouth opening that I am also accustomed to. My thin stainless steel straws fit into it perfectly. My guys use this size all the time. They work on the road as commercial electricians, and depend on quality cups to carry their drinks. This size is great for cars. It fits into our cup holders without issue. The construction of this cup is the double walled construction, with a vacuum seal in between. That is what makes for the great insulation effects. I love that no matter what the temperature of the drink inside of the cup, the outside of the cup is never uncomfortable to touch and hold. Steamy hot drinks, no problem. Icy cold drinks, you can’t even tell. We do have the 20oz Yeti cup to compare this cup to, and it performs just as well! This cup is dishwasher safe, but I always hand wash everything, anyhow. Everyone always says, is the cup leakproof. Well, no, duh, lol. There is a whole in the lid. That always cracks me up. The seal itself is fantastic, and we have no leaing from around the seal. Fortunately, the drinking hole is small, and down from the edge. With regular walking, your fine and dandy. If you bend over to pick something up, and your cup is in your hand, it will leak out, lol. Yes, I have done that, and more than once too. We really love the bright green color. We call it Zombie Green, haha. It’s easy to spot, so hopefully, you won’t leave it on top of your car, or behind on your outing. You’ll be able to tell if a family member or coworker tries to claim it as theirs. We absolutely love it, and have no complaints. It’s a formidable challenger on the Stainless Steel Tumbler market.

Stands up to the competition. – Buy Chiefs’ 20oz Stainless Steel Tumbler with 4 Straws Bundle.


My family and I all use these new double walled stainless steel cups. I would feel bad about not using my Tervis cups, but these cups really help keep my cold drinks cold, longer, and our hot coffee drinks, hotter, longer. You really can’t lose with these. This is another brand (Chief) that has entered the competition among the stainless cup industry, lol. It is a 20oz stainless steel insulated cup, with a lid. The lid is just like the lid on our 20oz Yeti that we have. The seal is nice and tight, and holds very well. There is that usual small opening to drink out of. I like that they included the stainless steel straw that will fit into this cup. They actually include a set of 4 stainless steel straws, and 1 straw cleaning brush. This is definitely the eco-friendlier way to go over disposable straws. I have been using a stainless steel straw and cup for a very long time now, and I do not ever taste a flavor difference with the metal. This tumbler has been able to hold its’ own amongst its competitors that we own. I always have an ice cold drink with me, even bedside, so it’s important that my ice last as long as it can. If you just place ice in here, you will have some ice left in it the next day. My throat is always swollen due to frequent anaphylactic reactions, so this is a must have feature for me. I think that’s pretty wild that ice will last so long in this cup; I love that. This cup will not leach chemicals into your drink either. It is obviously BPA free. It will not shatter or crack on you, if you drop it. Your hands will not get cold or hot when holding this either, due to its’ great insulation. Since stainless steel doesn’t rust, you will not have to worry about your cup not lasting for you. We use a Keurig to make our coffee. This will not fit, but if you brew a large cup of coffee, that will fit in here perfectly, and allow enough room for milk. So, the large cup setting is a perfect match for this cup, if you add milk to your coffee. If you drink it black, it still fits, and there will be some room left over in it. Another great to go benefit, is that it will fit into your car cup holders well. It fits into all of my cup holders. This is another must have feature for us as well. This has held up to our testing, and our must haves. They even have it available in the 30oz size as well. It’s a welcomed addition to the stainless tumbler market.

Fits the Yeti! – Neat Lids’ 30 oz. Tumbler Lid.


I have a 30oz Yeti cup, and one of their competitors’ 30oz Stainless Steel tumblers too. I drink out of my Yeti 30oz all the time, and I do use a straw. It’s hard to find straws that will fit into these cups. The tops that come with them have a very small drink opening on them. I have been seeing these new tops advertised all over Facebook. So, I have been very intrigued by them. In other words, I was so thrilled to be given the chance to review one. It arrives in simple, mail order packaging, and in perfect condition. It fit both my Yeti tumbler and my copycat tumbler, perfectly. It is made out of BPA free, top quality, food grade plastic. The seal on the outer ring is great, and really keeps your lid in place. There is a top sliding “door” per say, on the top of the cup. It slides over, and cover up the hole perfectly. Your drink will still trickle out if tipped, but a splash from walking won’t make it out. That is a great perk if you take your morning drink with you, on your way to work. The O Ring Seal makes the vacuum seal well. Without this seal, your cup wouldn’t be able to keep your cold liquids cold, and your hot liquids stay hot, for as long as it does. I noticed no difference with this lid compared to the lid that comes with the cups. I like the drinking opening a lot, on this lid. When slid open, the drink opening, was made a little bit larger, to accommodate straws. It is hard to find a tall thin straw, so this lid makes it doable. I am loving this feature. If not using a straw, the sliding lid feature is very beneficial as well. Especially if you are hanging outside. You don’t have to worry about any bugs making your way into your drink, eeewwwww. It’s also really nice knowing your hot coffee won’t splash onto you while heading out the door. Overall, I really like this lid. I just wish that when the lid was skid shut, that no liquid would drip out if slightly tipped. I wouldn’t definitely still but this lid, for the straw feature alone.

Another great tumbler. – Simple Modern Vacuum Insulated 30oz Stainless Steel Tumbler.



Let me tell you, we had been converted Tervis people. Then, my son moved us over to the Yeti stainless cups. We have officially been converted over to the Yeti side, lol. I have tried other competitor brands, but this is my first 30oz competitor cup. I use my 30oz Yeti every day! I just love it. So, I was very, very curious and excited about testing out this competitor. I love the challenge. This mug looks just like my Yeti. It has a smaller bottom area, so it can fit in my car cup holder. I will not use a cup, if it doesn’t fit in my car. My throat swells shut all of the time due to numerous life threatening allergies. My throat is always swollen and sore. I always have a cup fully of an icy drink to sip on, 24/7. My throat wakes me up during the night, and I sip on the icy drink. It really helps. So, it is very important to me that my cup can keep my drink cold for an extended period of time. I did an ice test on this cup first thing. I filled it to the top with ice, and then placed the top on. The top has silicone rings around it, and it creates a great seal. Mind you, there is a drinking hole in the lid. You can fit a narrow straw through this. I have thin stainless steel straws that we use with these cups. After 25 hours, there was actually still some ice left in the cup. It performs as well as my Yeti, which makes me very happy!!!! It even comes in 8 different color choices, for no additional cost. It is made out of 18/8 stainless steel, and has the double wall construction. It is toxin free, chemical free, and safe to drink both hot and cold liquids out of it. My husband took his coffee to work with him. He had a 3 hour drive to the office, too. He is very happy with how this cup is performing with hot liquids. The double wall construction is great. I wouldn’t have it any other way. The cup never sweats. It is comfortable to both hold and drink out of this cup. You can put steamy hot coffee right from the Kuerig in here, and not feel the heat through the cup. We haven’t been able to find any negatives with this cup. It has held its own against our Yeti. Enjoy.

Performs like my Yeti! – Kryogear’s KRYO KUP – 20oz Tumbler Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Travel Mug.


I am a big fan of these new double walled stainless steel cups. We have the name brand one, Yeti, already. I was excited to compare the two. I like a challenge. This particular cup is by Kryogear on Amazon, and it is the 20oz version. They have the name Kryo nicely etched on the side of the cup. That is literally the only difference between the Kryo cup and the Yeti cup. My cup came with 1 lid and 1 stainless steel straw. It is supposed to come with two lids, but that was of no concern to me, so I never said anything. If that happens to you, you can request the 2nd lid. This cup is made out of 18/8 stainless steel. It is thick and durable. I love stainless. It doesn’t naturally harbor fungus, bacteria, or mold. The lid has a great seal on it and works perfectly. I placed ice in the cup, and after 12 hours of sitting in my living room/kitchen combo space, it had melted approx.. only a 1/6th of the way. I was very impressed indeed. It matches up to the Yeti perfectly. This cup is comfortable to hold when it’s full of ice. Since it is made with a double wall of stainless, hot drinks stay hot longer as well, and is just as comfortable to hold. We love using our cups like this one. I always keep a drink on hand with a ton of ice, even when I go out. I suffer from frequent anaphylactic reactions, and my throat is always sore and swollen. I have to have an icy drink with me. I can rely on this cup to even stay icy throughout the night! I can’t express how important this is to me. I love how they include the straw with the cup. It’s great for those who don’t have a supply on hand already. I love using our stainless straws. Yet again, no chemical worries. With this set up there will be no chemicals leaching into your drinks. This company even offers a lifetime guarantee! I am very comfortable recommending this product. It’s pretty top notch!

Beauty in a cup. – VizCása’s 8 Ounce Double-Wall Insulated Glass Coffee & Tea Mug.


Ok, I have to admit, I am a fan of VizCasa’s cups. I have a few of them and I love them. The construction is top notch. I like to describe their aesthetics as simplified beauty. They are simply beautiful cups, and they function just as well. This mug is and 8oz mug. You can pour about 6oz in here comfortably without having to worry about it overflowing. It is a double walled, insulated glass cup. It is microwave safe and freezer safe. You can put it on the top shelf of a dishwasher, but they strongly recommend hand washing it. I have only ever hand washed mine. The double walled insulation works well. It does not build up condensation, and your hands do not get hot holding a hot cup of coffee either. It is comfortable to hold and use. The edges are well rounded, and this cup is quite comfy on the lips. It will soon become a favorite in your home. I think it’s the perfect size for espresso, specialty teas and even juice in the morning. I am very comfortable recommending this product. Just be careful washing it. I just dropped mine cleaning it, and it shattered in my sink. I was so upset, because I really love this mug.

So eco-friendly. – iZEEKER’s bent stainless steel straws.


This pack of straws is awesome. I love that it is an 8 pack. It is a useable size for a family. You don’t have to buy 2, which is great. We use stainless and glass straws all of the time now. They are so healthy to drink out of. No chemical worries with these stainless straws. They even have the comfortable bend built into them like regular straws. In this set you get 8 stainless steel straws and 2 straw cleaning brushes. The straws are a breeze to clean with these brushes. I store mine in my dish drainer, so they are always there. These are 9 inch straws and have a 5mm opening. They fit in my Mason Jar glasses perfectly. These straws can go into the dishwasher. I only hand wash though, lol. They arrive in 2 individually wrapped packages of 4 with 1 cleaning brush each. I love that these are eco-friendly, and we are not contributing to the landfill every day. Plastic straws leach chemicals both into you and the landfill. These are made out of thick stainless steel as well. They are not bendy in the least. I also do not have any issues with the straws changing the flavor of my drinks. They are comfortable on the lips as well. You can drink almost anything out of these. Thick milkshakes or smoothies, may not be your best bet though. My whole family made the conversion right away. I have never had any complaints. This is a great set from iZeeker.
