A Quality Tumbler But...
on May 6, 2011
...This tumbler sacrifices/lacks some simple features of other tumblers I own.
The Oggi 16oz Double Wall tumbler is actually a really good Tumbler. I own 3 different brands of double walled Tumbler's and the Oggi seems to be built the best. The entire structure of the Tumbler, (straw, lid and glass) all feel durable and well constructed. The lid makes a good tight seal and the included straw is quality also. I've tested this tumbler out with all kinds of drinks from Iced Coffee, Iced Tea, Soda, Water, Seltzer etc and it does a great job with anything you put in it.
The other two brands of tumblers I own have varying problems which all affect the performance of the drinking glass; the Oggi suffers no problems but ends up lacking a few features that seem out of place compared to other Tumbler's I've used. While the Oggi's build construction is top notch, the two factors that Irk me about the product is 1) Hand-Wash Only 2) The bulb on the straw to prevent it from falling out is not adjustable (both brands of tumblers I own have this feature of being able to adjust how far you can pull the straw up)
Overall both issues don't really hurt the Oggi Tumbler since it performs where it counts, and that is how it handles your drinks. It keeps your drinks cold, no sweating and Ice seems to last three times as long as it normally did in a regular glass. I would highly recommend the Oggi in the end as it is the best of the 3 tumblers I own. It also is BPA Free, which makes this tumbler a safer alternative for children.
