The Klean Kanteen Classic 12 oz is a reusable, stainless steel bottle thathelps you stay healthy, reduce consumption, and save money! Some plastic containers tend to leach unwelcome compounds such as Bisphenol A during regular use and exposure to heat.

Fits in most lunch boxes. The wide-mouth accommodates ice cubes and makes cleaning easy.

5.8" H x 2.5" W
12 oz (0.35L)

Design and Functionality
Klean Kanteen is a reusable, risk-free stainless steel container that does not leach toxins into its contents. Reusable, lightweight & durable. The wide-mouth accommodates ice cubes and makes cleaning easy. Loop caps on sports caps and screw on loop tops can be attached to bags with a carabiner and is easy to carry with one finger.

Klean Kanteen recently altered the design of their sport cap to allow for better air ventilation and easier drinking. Air is allowed into the bottle via an air vent, which is plugged with a small silicone plug. The plug helps to keep the water in, but it is not leak proof.

Materials
Made from electropolished, non-leaching, high grade 304 L.N. (18/8) stainless steel. Klean Kanteen’s 304 L.N. stainless steel is grade blended specifically for food preparation, dairy, brewing, various medical uses and other applications where mineral migration is unacceptable. The steel is put through a electropolishing process which seals the surface and prevents minerals from migrating into the contents. These reusable, risk-free stainless steel containers do not impart taste and do not leach toxins into their contents. Plastics (polycarbonate) have been shown to leach carcinogens including BPA during regular use, exposure to heat and especially after cleaning. .

Sustainability
100% recyclable. Using Klean Kanteen bottles helps replace wasteful, use-and-toss single-serving plastic beverage containers, while saving you money in the process. Reusing durable Klean Kanteen bottles ultimately helps you consume less over time. Furthermore, 304 (or 18/8) stainless steel is a sustainable material, having a long service life, usability in a number of applications and is environmentally friendly. Stainless steel needs less maintenance and its hygienic qualities means that we do not have to use harsh cleaners to get a clean surface.

Fact: over 50% of new stainless steel comes from re-melted stainless steel scrap (SSINA)

About Klean Kanteen
Klean Kanteen, a family-owned company in Chico, CA, was the first to create a stainless steel beverage container to curb the use of the one-time use water bottle and in response to credible reports about chemicals in common plastic drinking and food containers. Since 2004, Klean Kanteen has been informing the public about the health and environmental hazards of eating and drinking from plastic containers at consumer and trade shows such as Green Festivals, Outdoor Retailer Market, Natural Products Expo West and East, Interbike Expo, Whole Children Whole Planet and many others.

Klean Kanteen visits their manufacturing facilities 4-5 times per year and perform audits every six months to ensure all of their products are produced with respect for the environment and fair labor standards, including: the ethical treatment of factory workers, child labor, wages/benefits, health and safety, etc. Additionally, they do regular lab testing on random shipments through a local lab in the U.S. to ensure their products are made per their specifications, are free of hazardous substances such as lead, and do not leach chromium, manganese, etc.

Care Instructions
  • Klean Kanteens are easy to clean with a bottle brush and mild soap. We recommend an old fashioned cleaner: white vinegar and baking soda.
  • Stainless steel does not rust. If your bottle appears to have rusted, it is a harmless residue left behind from the electro-polishing process. Electro charges remove fine particles from the stainless steel surface, remove impurities and seal it. Electrolytes left behind sometimes turn a rust color, but it's harmless.


  • Tips
    • Do not freeze bottle. The force of liquids expanding as they freeze can cause your Klean Kanteen to become deformed and can also break the weld that holds the bottle together. Freezing any Klean Kanteen will void the one-year warranty against manufacturer defects.
    • If your sport caps occasionally make a chirping or squeaking noise when they may be screwed on too tight. To alleviate this problem, try slightly loosening your cap before you drink.

Comments about Product:

Good size for preschoolers, easy to clean, no scary chemicals. If you can find the Avent sippy adapters, they make a great travel sippy for preschoolers (not a good choice for a first sippy).

5.0 great product!

Comments about Product:

This is the second set of these bottles I've purchased. I love them for the children's lunches. They don't take up too much space in the lunch box. Even my 14 year old takes one to school. Now that I have a second set I don't have to wash them every day. I've been putting the bottle part in the dishwasher for years and they're literally as good as new. I always wash the tops by hand. The only issue I've had is that I did put some in the freezer and the bottom is now misshapen. I think they even have a warning against doing that. I don't think they make a sleeve to fit this size, so I found some cheap "cuzies" at the store and they fit. It works to keep it colder for longer. Can't say enough good things about Klean Kanteen bottles -- I have them in every size and use them daily. Enjoy!

Comments about Product:

I already own 4 of the 12oz size for my family. I bought this one as a baby shower gift. It will go from diaper bag to lunch box. I skipped the sippy cup top. As toddlers, my kids preferred the sports cap. They did not like the width of the sippy cup top.

2.0 Somewhat disappointed.

Comments about Product:

Our family has always loved Klean Kanteen. One of the things we love is the stainless caps. The rest of the bottle is the same quality but imagine my surprise when I found a plastic cap. I really considered sending the bottles back. The cap is what set Klean Kanteen apart from other stainless bottles.

5.0 Still too big

Comments about Product:

I need to carry milk for my breakfast cereal. This bottle is a short little container that is worthy of the Klean Kanteen name - well made, sturdy, no odor, easy to clean, tight fitting lid. It is a wonderful product. It is just that 12 oz is still more than is needed to moisten my cold cereal, so I wish they had an even smaller size. But for now, the 12 oz size will do. Maybe I am the only one in the world that carries cold cereal to work.

5.0 Great Alternative to Plastic

Comments about Product:

I've been looking for an alternative to plastic. I specifically bought this brand because they are guaranteed BPA free. These are also so sturdy & are resistant to dents & scratches. They come in a great variety of sizes -- smaller for lunch boxes and larger for taking to the gym. This is a well made product & a trusted brand.

Comments about Product:

I got two for my boys, ages 6 and 3 to take to school. They're a good size and we like the sports top that we got too, but if they don't push it down completely, it leaks. They're getting the hang of it but it can be tough for kids.

Comments about Product:

finally a bottle that lasts. I have owned a variety of different high end bottles, but they all have had the same problem. If anything gets left in them long enough to go bad (an easy mistake with kids!) them smell forever. These Klean Kanteen are the only ones that I can get anything compleatly out of, and without any special products. They work fine in the dishwasher.

Comments about Product:

Klean Kanteens are what every water bottle should aspire to be. This thing would be great on camping trips. If you needed to boil water, you could do it right in the bottle. (Make sure you remove the plastic lid first!) Its light weight, about the same weight as my old plastic bottles without the nasty plastic taste. I have tried many different canteens, and this one is exactly what I have been looking for.

5.0 Perfect

Comments about Product:

Perfect. I fill these 1/3 way with water and lay them on their side in the freezer to make a giant ice cube (when I sat one upright in the freezer, I think the bottom expanded a bit). My kids love them, although the old style sports cap is a little hard for them to open. We all think the sucking sound is a funny, but if you press on the little dot, it goes away, but we like the extra noise!

Comments about Product:

I love the Klean Kanteen-I've bought one for each member of the family. The stainless steel leaves water tasting fresh- no strange odors or after taste like other bottles. The amount of plastic water bottles we've saved with a family of 5 is impressive. They're an investment that quickly pays for itself- think how many times you pick up bottled water at a couple bucks each. Small size is perfect for lunch boxes.

5.0 Great product!

Comments about Product:

Great product! I love putting orange juice in it, and also taking it to work, because although we have a water dispenser, we almost never have any cups. This solves that problem! I like that I don't have to worry about dropping it, like a ceramic or glass cup, and that it fits in my lunch bag perfectly. I also use this at home, instead of regular glasses. It's become my favorite drink container.

My son love his Klean Kanteen because it "looks cool and the water tastes great." I love his bottle because I know that he is not ingesting chemicals that leach into the water when using a plastic bottle. I will continue to shop at reusablebags.com. Your prices are lower than all of your competitors and the service was excellent.

Comments about Product:

Very good size to grab-and-go to fit in a purse. The metal allows for holding hot beverages, but because there's no insulation, be careful of handling. I haven't noticed much of a smell from the metal nor the plastic, so overall, it's what I expected and I'm happy with it, especially during the holiday sale price.

I bought a batch of these for my husband's lunch. He takes one filled with water and one with juice or tea. He loves them! They keep his drinks cool all day- not cold, but cool even on warm days. I just ordered another batch for my grandkids to use in place of the plastic sippy cups. This is a great product. We like the loop caps on them, and have found that a stemware flute brush (made for tall wineglasses) is exactly the width of the bottle, and makes it super easy to clean!

Wonderful size for my kids lunch box. My six year old has difficulty unscrewing the top so I need to make sure I don't put it on too tight. Other than that, great bottle. Glad to use less plastic and I feel it's safer to have they drinks sitting in this rather than plastic for the duration of school. We also have the 18 oz. size as well and it's great too!

Comments about Product:

Great product and great service. Super fast shipping to Hawaii. I purchased 4 bottles for my children (6 & 8). They love them. Easy for little hands to open and close. No leaking so far. The S/S is easy to clean with a regular bottle brush. The wide opening allows me to drop in a few ice cubes. I purchased SIGG bottles for the kids when they were younger. They were aluminum with a coating on the inside. These Kleen Kanteen bottles are way better. The SIGG coating seemed to retain odors and a film developed on the inside of the bottle after using the bottles for rice milk. I have no problem with this S/S bottle. Thanks for a great product!

Comments about Product:

I really do like the item. Mostly for the fact that it's leak proof and I can use differnt liquids (milk, juice, water) and each one tastes like it is supposed to with no residue flavor. Also, unlike plastic cups, this doesn't retain the smell and residue of dishwasher soap. They are a little difficult for my under 5 kids to get the (loop) cap on tight, but once on properly, they are totally leak proof.

The other kids at school like them too. :) A nice alternative to those plastic drink containers, and "grown up" enough for my 10 and 12 year olds to like them. I will be buying another Kanteen for myself as soon as I can decide what size to buy! ;) Thanks a bunch!

Klean Kanteen was a good purchase. Our 6 year old uses it every day. The cap is not too tight to take off. The wide mouth fits ice cubes and is easy to clean. The only drawback is the circular mouth causes a wider flow of liquid (6 year old dribbly chin). Overall it is still a favorite for the kid.

Also, like others have mentioned, the lid is noisy to remove (as issue in a meeting), but you can get a different lid such as the sports top. Overall, a good product.

5.0 These are perfect for my 2 preschoolers!

Comments about Product:

These are perfect for my 2 preschoolers! They're the perfect size for them, and they love feeling adult like Mom & Dad with their KKs! These bottles are great quality, and they hold just the right amount for my kiddos. The sportscap is perfect for them too - no fiddling, barely any leaking out of the top of the sportscap when it's open and laid on its side, and they're easy enough for my 5 y/o and my strong 2.5 y/o to open/close. I really am very happy with these! I did end up buying insulated sleeves for these, and am really happy I did. I don't want to worry about scratches & dents (and my 2.5 y/o drops and throw things at his will, so I know dents & scratches are bound to happen with his!). The sleeve keeps their hands from getting too cold, and it's a very nifty carrying handle as well!

Comments about Product:

I have 4 Kleen Kanteens and I like them very much. I got this little one to put by the side of my bed. It's short size makes it less subject to being knocked over when I reach for it in the dark. The bottles I take dancing I label with the clear address labels laser printed with my contact info in case I leave them somewhere since they are expensive. The clear labels seem to stand up to bashing around and being washed. Regular address labels get scraped and dissolve.

Comments about Product:

The Klean Kanteen is easy to clean and looks attractive. I am happy I am not getting plastic aftertaste with every swig of water. It doesn't look like it holds 12 oz of fluid but I measured and it really does. When you unscrew the lid it sounds like nails on a chalkboard but it is a small price to pay to help the environment.

4.0 I like the shape/styling of the 12 oz

Comments about Product:

I like the shape/styling of the 12 oz. klean canteens that I purchased. The smaller size is perfect for my needs. I wanted mainly to use these for my son's beverage with his lunch, and also for his water throughout the day. I thought that using them for water would be a great way to stop using and disposing of the plastic bottles and eliminate the potential for toxins to be released into the water. I put iced tea in one and water in the other for my son. He commented that they both tasted funny. I'm not sure if they really did, or if it is just because he's been used to the other containers for such a long time. I used one with iced tea in it, and it did seem to taste a little different. I also ordered the stainless steel tops but find that when I wash them, water seeps in between the plastic top and stainless plug. These were a bit expensive in my opinion, so I would have expected the quality of the stoppers to be better.

4.0 I bought two of the 12-oz

Comments about Product:

I bought two of the 12-oz. Klean Kanteen products for my daughters to take to school in their lunchboxes so we could cut down on buying plastic bottles of water and bring filtered well water from home or local spring water. The products have been great so far (one month)! They are very compact, hold a lot, and their water (to me) doesn't taste metallic, which was a concern of mine. It is winter now, so I don't know how hot the water in the bottle will get in the summer. We may buy a sleeve to keep the water cold. The mouth is wide enough for large ice cubes. My 11-year-old has had both kids and teachers comment on how cool the Klean Kanteen looks. We're thinking of getting the sport size one for softball season. Good product!

I do enjoy my new Klean Kanteen. I feel so much better about not using plastic bottles. I love that it seals tightly, so no leaking. I do have one complaint though. If the cap is left on with water in it, I do taste a steel "flavor" in the water. As a result, I try to minimize the amount of time that I keep the lid on it.

My girls love their SS 12 oz. bottles. They love them because they look cool, are easy to handle and easy to drink from. They especially like the wide opening so they can effortlessly add ice cubes to their beverages. The sports cap reduces the likelihood of major spills happening at school and provides a loop for carrying the bottle. As a parent, I love how easy they are to clean and the fact that they do not absorb any odors. Clean is really clean.

5.0 Great product

Comments about Product:

Great product. My 9 year old loves the bottle. She and her friends joke about the "clean" and not " dirty" canteen logo. It is just the right size for a lunch bag. I worry that it does not hold enough for a whole day of school, but she said that even if she finishes what I have put in, she can always refill from school drinking fountain. I am also thinking of getting one myself, because it is smaller than the Sigg 0.75 L bottle that I currently use, and I can put this Klean Canteen one in my purse. One drawback, if at all: the lid screws on so the stopper is INSIDE the bottle's neck, therefore what your lower lip is touching when you drink is the surface that is not protected by a lid, unlike the Sigg design. In fact, where you hold the bottle by the neck is where you will be drinking from. So if you are at all finicky about that....

Water in the Klean Kanteen always tastes great. I highly recommend the Klean Kanteen.

Comments about Product:

I bought two 12 oz. klean kanteens for my kids lunches. In less than a month they already paid for themselves as I do not pack them bottled water anymore. I chill the water (or add ice cubes) and the kids have cold water for lunch/and or snack at school. We all feel good about not useing wasteful plastic and it's a positive ecological lesson for them to learn re-use water bottles. But unlike plastic, stainless steel won't leach harmful and it stays clean. I'm very happy with this product. I even bought a 40 oz. for myself to take to work.

Comments about Product:

My 2.5 year old LOVES her water bottle. She feels like hot stuff having the same water bottle as mom. I got the bottle with the sippy cup attachment for her but find that more and more she wants to use it without so she can be like mom. It is holding up nicely to the challenges of a day at daycare. It cleans up beautifully. No residual taste. I was worried that the lack of colorful characters adorning the bottle would make it less appealing - but I was wrong. She asks to use everyday over all of the other sippy cups.

I love the kanteens, but wish they came with more instructions. Like, can they go in a dishwasher? I put them in, and the next day one leaked all over my sons lunch bag. Not sure if it wasn't screwed all the way closed, or because the seal was ruined from being in the dishwasher. If I crank it down tight it doesn't leak, but then he can't open it himself. The bottles are a bit hard to open and close. Other than that, I love the fact that they are safe and keep the water pretty cool.

The 3.5 yo calls it her "Earth Cup". It's worth the money.
