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.
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.
I think that this is the same 'metallic taste' problem that many reviewers have mentioned. Since many other reviewers did not find this defect, I also think that there are two sources for the lids being supplied by Klean Kanteen here. If this is true, for the sake of their reputation they should get rid of the offending batches asap and also recall the defective caps. I mean, isn't 'no weird chemicals' their main selling point?
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.
