I gave the product 2 stars, because it does it's job, and because I really wanted to like it. I did get some advice from another stainless steel product's CS, about the metal taste. That is to try soaking the product in vinegar or beer for one hour, to get rid of the metal taste. I'm not sure if all stainless steel products that are metal-flavored can withstand the acidity of vinegar, but you could give it a try. :)
My Husband and I do not detect a metallic taste, as other reviewers have reported. To be honest, I think its psychological. My first sip, I'd have sworn my coffee tasted like metal. My second sip, after I got over the strange feeling of a metal straw, I realized I'd imagined it. My Husband never detected a metallic flavor, and his taste buds are 10x better than mine.
They've easily paid for themselves twice over. Spending $2 monthly on straws just isn't worth it. The cleaning brush makes maintaining sanitary straws simple, I couldn't ask for more!
Highly recommended product! Especially if you're trying to make your home and lifestyle a bit greener!
And for him, my concern is his safety. I was already a bit skeptical about the potential for tooth damage if he tried chewing on these - but more so, I'm concerned about the sharp edges on the inside of each opening. A few seconds of buffing could've made the surfaces smooth. Instead, a wayward tongue can suffer a pretty nasty cut if it catches the straw in the wrong way. I'm planning to use a Dremmel tool to sand the edges, but I shouldn't have to.
These straws are nice because you can use them in cans or super bubbly soda and they don't float. I haven't noticed a metallic tang, and it's nice to always have some straws on hand. Just be sure to always have a brush that can run the entire length of the straw, and give it a good soapy scrub after thicker drinks like smoothies.
Love them and both an extra set. Also, keeping the disposible waste to a minimum is one of my contributions to green living.
Recommend to everyone.
I didn't notice any metallic taste to any of the straws, nor do I see any jagged edges inside. It should be noted that the straws are slightly less than 1/4 inch in diameter - it is actually possible to sleeve a standard plastic straw over these metal ones. Not sure why you'd WANT to, but you can! However that width means these are for watery liquids only - no smoothies or anything like that.
Made in China, so God knows what the metal is. If I see any signs of corrosion I'll get back to you.

Perfect. They come out clean in the dishwasher, and I have't had any issue with these since I bought them. (We use them a lot, too.)Published 3 months ago by Natalie Gonzalez
Have had these for years now, they're awesome! They're very strong and have lasted many, many dishwasher cyclesPublished 7 months ago by Jaq
Use these for iced coffee. The metal is refreshing for cold drinks, and it comes with a cleaning wand. They do get sludgy, though, even with the cleaner.Published 18 months ago by dina

I LOVE these! My dentist recommended that I drink coffee and tea through a straw to prevent staining. These particular straws work well with the hot/warm beverages. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Putter
