That said, the quality of the straws seems good, and the package comes with two cleaners which appear to effectively clean the straws. Although as I said, I have no idea how you'd really know without an autoclave or something.
Bottom line, I wish I had just gone with the glass straws to start with, but for 4x the money it's hard to justify since we haven't tried those in real life either. If you know you like the stainless drinking straws, I don't think these will disappoint. If you aren't sure, see if you can find someone locally that has them to try before you buy.
Guests always ask where we got them and think they're great, btw.
They're well made and seem like they'll last forever. One note: They're heavier than regular straws and with the bend the center of gravity is to the side of the cup/glass. Not recommended for lightweight or paper cups as they WILL tip over once the amount of fluid goes down.
Personally, the chilly straw doesn't bother me. Yes, if you put the straw in cold drinks, it will get cold. I have not tried it with hot drinks, but I would assume the same thing happens. But, if you are drinking a cold drink, the straw doesn't get any colder than what you are drinking. It's just a matter of adjusting to the sensation of the chilliness before the liquid enters your mouth. The bend in the straw is perfectly located so that the straw rests against the side of the glass naturally and is angled for a natural sip.
I run these through the dish washer (each stuck on their own individual spine on the lower rack) and they come out clean every time. Lovely reusable straw, and my daughter always finds excuses to use them!
(Note: I agree with another comment. These straws have weight. While we do use them with heftier plastic cups, I would not recommend using them with paper or light-weight plastic cups, as they will tip over once the cup is empty.)
It came in 2 packages of 4 and each 4 pack came with a wire brush to scrub the inside which is handy. I know I said dishwasher safe but if you don't have a dishwasher or even worse, your 6 year old leaves the straw in a glass of chocolate milk over night, trust me, you are gonna be glad you have the brush. Cleans up in a jiffy.
