Thank you for your feedback.
The high quality stainless steel container is very easy to clean and was just what we were looking for.
The only problem I have found is that the gasket that seals the lid can sometimes fall out.
I purchased this, threw in the BlenderBall and now I am in heaven.

Product Description

Dishwasher-safe, eco-friendly, high-quality stainless steel water bottles from Klean Kanteen offer a great alternative to plastic and lined metal bottles. Constructed of food-grade #304 stainless steel, Kleen Kanteen bottles are BPA-free and 100 percent recyclable. An all-stainless steel interior, 18/8 stainless caps, and stainless steel threads mean the bottles won't retain or leach flavors, so you get a fresh, clean, crisp drink every time. Because Klean Kanteen bottles are constructed of food-grade stainless steel, they're not coated with a plastic or epoxy lining like aluminum bottles.The new wide mouth line of bottles have an opening more than two inches in diameter, which makes filling, pouring, and cleaning the bottle a cinch, and the universal thread design works with most standard backcountry water filters without an adapter. With the Klean Kanteen Wide, you have even more earth- and body-friendly choices. They come in five sizes, ranging from 12 to 64 ounces, and all come in pure, shiny brushed stainless steel. The wide bottles are shorter and more compact than Klean Kanteen Classic bottles but incorporate the same slim design, meaning sizes up to 27 ounces fit in most cup holders. They also come standard with the Stainless Loop Cap, which works seamlessly with the S-Biner, so it's a snap to clip it right onto a shoulder strap or pack. Easy filling, pouring, and cleaning Doesn't retain or leach flavors

Size: 40-OunceColor: Brushed Stainless Steel
I did my share of research prior to moving forward with the Kleen Kanteen. I read almost all the reviews...including many that claimed the taste of the liquid from the Kanteen tasted like metal. I must agree with part of the statement as the first three times I used the Kanteen my drink did taste like metal. Having worked in the restaurant industry for may years with stainless steel, I had a theory. So I did a little experiment. I put some water in the Kanteen and let it sit for a while. I took two drinks: the first drink involved putting my lips around the rim and taking drink. The second, using a straw and taking a drink. The first drink did taste metallic. However, the second drink did all. So my conclusion was the taste was coming from the rim of the Kanteen. But the metallic taste from the rim only lasted for about three uses. My forth time I used it, no metallic taste as all...even drinking it from the rim. You got to love that.

How do I clean it? I hand wash it using regular dish detergent (Dawn) and hot water. I rinse it thoroughly a few time with hot water and a final rinse with cold water. I wash both the inside and outside. I never put it in the dishwasher as I have seen what the dishwater detergent does to stainless over time.

Overall, I am very happy with my Kleen Kanteen. I plan on buying a 60oz one soon.

I have at least 10 different Nalgene bottles and a few Liberty bottles but these have replaced all of them. I use the single wall SS bottle everywhere but most importantly while camping. The strong steel bottle gives me something else to boil water in. Also you can set it close to the fire and let it warm up and when you go to sleep on a cold night you have a hot bottle by your feet.

Size: 64-OunceColor: Brushed Stainless Steel Verified Purchase
We are reducing our use of plastic for food and liquid storage, and these bottles work great. We got three of them, and keep iced tea in them, stored in the fridge. They clean up easily (fill part-way with soapy water, throw in stainless steel wool pad, put on lid, shake), and have survived being dropped with only some little dings, no leaks or anything.

Also, I've heard a lot of people warn about metallic taste in iced tea stored in metal containers, but that does not happen here. I'm not sure if the metallic taste thing is just an old wive's tale, or refers to non-stainless receptacles, but we have not had that problem.

One tiny complaint is that the lid has a thin rubber/plastic gasket that is prone to falling out. We've lost one of them already, but since they only sit upright in our fridge it doesn't matter to us. But, if you plan to treat them more roughly, store them on their side, etc, you will need to keep track of the gaskets.

Other than that, no complaints, highly recommended.

UPDATE: We've been using these jugs for several years now, and still love them, and I wanted to clarify something in the above review. I figured out why we sometimes have the gaskets come loose - it occurs when we pour in the tea while it's still very hot, then immediately seal the jugs and place them in the fridge. As the liquid and air in the jug cool, they contract, which forms a vacuum, and the suction of inrushing air is audible when you open it later. This is the only time that gaskets come out. If we let the tea cool down a bit - not all the way, just not directly in the jugs and sealed in the fridge after steeping, the issue does not occur. Just wanted to pass that info along to anyone considering purchasing these containers, or anyone else who may be experiencing a similar problem with hot liquids creating a vacuum that extracts the gasket. The gaskets are relatively easy to put back into place, fyi.

Size: 40-OunceColor: Brushed Stainless Steel Verified Purchase
I bought this bottle after I lost my other Klean Canteen. I opted for this one because I could get the larger bottle. Despite the reviews I purchased this anyways, because I haven't owned and enjoyed a previous bottle of theirs. The first time I drank water(after washing with soap) out of this canteen I instantly noticed the extreamly strong metalic taste so many others have experienced. Additionally, if my water was left in the canteen for more than 24 hours the water began tasting metalicy also.

I also noticed that the rubber ring in this canteen is almost impossible to remove. This is why so many of you are getting that green goo. It is called algea. I used to get the green goo on my other one. It's from improper cleaning. It is important to remove the rubber ring and wash it along with the small groove where the ring sits. If you put iodine in your water, you can kill bacteria that grows. I always do this because I sometimes have water up to 48 hours in my jugs without cleaning it.

Another note is that while riding my bike I noticed this canteen leaks, just a few drops but none the less, it leaks.

I plan to return this canteen and do not recommend this for purchase. This is disappointing because Klean Canteen has some nice canteens, check out their other ones.

Size: 64-OunceColor: Brushed Stainless Steel
I have had several different water bottles and am pretty picky about my water quality. My two old KK's were fine (with the exception of the bad idea of having a stainless steel top grinding on a stainless steel body, releasing the metals therein). When I saw that KK was coming out with a 64 oz version that would sate me for longer, I jumped at the chance.

The first problem I had was the metallic/VOC taste that many others have commented on. I rinsed, washed, rinsed, washed, etc and it still wouldn't go away. But I noticed something else. I was drinking out of it one time when I was eating fish. With other water bottles, there might be a residual fish taste in the water if I didn't clean it out for maybe 2-3 refills (no, I don't backwash). Not so with the 64 oz KK. The taste persisted for weeks. Such taste persistence repeated itself with other meals I had, even after I cleaned it out. Still happens.

I also noticed the bottle had problem retaining water, so to speak. By that, I mean that the bottle leaks unless I screw the top on with a force that I would have to call excessive. That's a problem for me because I often carry papers and my computer in my bag. The other "retaining" problem it has is that every time I take a sip after removing the cap, water runs down the bottle and onto my shirt. I never had this problem with any other bottle including other KKs.

I have been trying to make sense of all this and here is my hypothesis.

There is a very thin seam about 2 mm below the top of the mouth. I think it retains minor amounts of oils or liquids. That seam is not there on my other KK water bottles.
