Stainless Steel Drinking Cups – Our Favorite Picks
If you’re looking for a tough, resilient drinking cup that’s unlikely to break, kind to the environment, and will probably last you years (if not decades!) then purchasing some stainless steel drinking cups is a great idea.
In this guide, we will share some of our top picks and favorite finds when it comes to stainless steel drinkware – so by the time you’ve finished reading, you’ll have a good idea of what options are out there.
Our first choice is perhaps one of the most popular stainless steel tumblers on the market, and it’s easy to see why.
It’s capable of holding both hot and cold drinks, gives you a nice 16 oz capacity, and even comes with a handy stainless steel straw.
Additionally, it relies on a double wall insulation, which keeps your cold drinks cold, and your hot drinks hot – which is a very nice feature to have – and it works tremendously well, as supported by many user reviews.
Finally, it uses a very tight seal to make sure there’s no accidental splils or leakages.
Overall this is a very good tumbler that makes for a great replacement to any other material, such as plastic or glass.
Our next find is this collection of stainless steel pint cups, which provide excellent value for money, seeing as they come in packs of 5.
What’s more, they are designed to be stackable, so this helps you save a lot of space – either in a cupboard, or when you’re taking them with you for an outdoor trip.
As you would expect, they are very durable, and won’t break or shatter like glass can. They’re constructed of premium ‘food-grade’ 18/8 stainless steel, which is also free of BPA and other potential toxins.
Something to note is that earlier designs of this cup weren’t finished in the same way, which could lead to rusting. However, the design has since been upgraded with an ‘electropolish’ finish that removes the risk of any surface rust from occurring.
Here’s another quality set of steel drinking cups, this time in a set of 4 – created by Cupsco.
They are constructed from 18/8 stainless steel, which is free of BPA, Phthalate, Lead, and a variety of other toxins you want to avoid.
Something to note is that these cups aren’t insulated, so they may not be best suited for hot drinks due to the heat transfer.
On the plus side, they transfer cold as well – which makes them very nice to use on a hot summer’s day.
Here’s another useful option for anyone who wants a stainless steel tumbler.
One of the great perks to this option is that it comes in a couple of different sizes, which means you can get either a 10 ounce or 16 ounce option.
They are sold individually, but there is an option to by a 4 pack if you want to order a larger set.
The interior is fully ‘electropolished’, to prevent any chance of rust occurring, and the exteriors are laser-etched.
If you’re looking for a budget set of stainless steel tumblers, then this option by Maxam could be the perfect choice for you.
For a very low price you’ll receive 4 tumblers, although they are a little thinner and lighter than some of the other options we’ve presented here.
They certainly feel like more of a ‘budget’ option, but it’s difficult to find anything better than these when you’re shopping at this particular price point.
If you want something that’s shaped more like a traditional mug, then this option will be right up your street.
These are aimed to be outdoor drinking cups, so they are perfect for camping or hiking trips. They’re also fairly lightweight, which is another great perk for when you’re carrying them around with you. Each cup should weigh around 3 oz while it’s empty.
For the money, they are a great option – especially when you consider you’ll be getting 4 mugs for the low price.
Our final pick are these drinking cups by Knight Of Armur.
Again, these cups are designed for camping and hiking, but you’re free to use them in a variety of other situations, making them highly versatile.
The stainless steel construction means they’re perfectly capable for hot and cold drinks – and you can even warm up soup in them on a camp fire if you wanted to.
For the low price, you will receive a pack of 4 cups – which provides excellent value for your money.
