In use …
Ecococoon bottles feature a wider style neck to make it easier for you to poor your drink in without spillage. The valve system is quite effective in preventing leaks. For everyday use it allows a good flow of water when sucked, then automatically closes when sucking stops.
In the hands of a determined toddler and with a good shake, water will come out. Generally though, the Ecococoon valve system is a smart one and one of the best no-spill options we’ve reviewed.
Irrespective of whether you fill your Cocoon drink bottle with a hot or cold drink, these bottles don’t get hot on the outside, nor do they sweat. So your Ecococoon bottle is always comfortable for a small person to hold.
The trick to the Ecococoon bottle is that the liquid you put in should be the temperature you want to maintain it at. You can’t heat up or freeze Ecococoon bottles.
For toddlers who still like a warm milk drink, the Ecococoon bottle is the perfect transition from a standard baby bottle. It’s great because you can take one bottle out with you all day and your milk drink will be warm for several drinks.
The stainless steel part of the bottle is easy to keep clean with a good wash under the tap. The lid & valve can both go in the top draw of the dishwasher.
So … the big question is do they really keep a liquid cold or warm for 12 hours. I’m going to set the bottles up for the overnight test right now. I’ll be back in the morning …
OK, I put boiling water in our tester Ecococoon bottle last night before bed, 12 hours later the water is still steaming. Ecococoon bottles; clinically proved to maintain your beverage temperature.
Consider this …
Because they are double hulled Ecococoon bottles are a little larger than comparable sized bottles. Even though they don’t seem to be much heavier than other stainless steel bottles.
Over time the plastic valves will need to be replaced (maybe every 12 months or so depending on use). You can buy replacement lids which include the valve for $10 or so. One of the down sides of the design is that the lid is completely separate, so runs the risk of being easily lost.
Like many other stainless steel drink bottles, Ecococoon bottles will dent and scratch if not treated with care. You can buy Ecococoon cuddlers from $10 which not only protect your bottle but include a strap handle, clip and an additional screw bottle top.
The verdict …
A lot of throught has gone into the design of this bottle to make it as practical and versatile as possible and it shows. The use of the valve to prevent spilling is very smart.
Ecococoon bottles also get a big thumbs up for our testers who love both the prints on the bottles and the cuddlers. Don’t forget though, little hands need to treat their Ecococoon bottles with care to maintain their good looks.
Ecococoon bottles are also great for parents.
