WHAT AGES ARE MONTIICO BOTTLES AND CUPS SUITABLE FOR?
MontiiCo Original and Mega Bottles: Our original bottles have a wide mouth opening which is perfect for popping ice cubes in to keep your drink uber frosty! It does mean that younger children might need supervision while using their MontiiCo bottle though, or while they adjust to the wider opening – in case of spills. The screw top lid is easy to open and close, thanks to the cool handle that gives a little bit more leverage.
We recommend Montii Original bottles for Children aged 4 and up. (And adults of course!) MontiiCo Mini Bottles: Our Mini Drink Bottles come with our new Sports Lid 2.0, which are certified as suitable for all for ages including under 3s!
DO MONTIICO BOTTLES AND CUPS LEAVE CONDENSATION MARKS?
Our bottles and cups are double walled – meaning NO condensation forms on the outside of the bottle.
ARE THE MONTIICO LIDS INTERCHANGEABLE?
Yes! The original, sports 2.0, sipper 2.0 and free pour lids are interchangeable. How rad is that?!
HOW DO I WASH MY BOTTLE?
Wash and rinse bottle thoroughly before first use, and after each use. Hand washing is recommended for best results. Our Bottles are dishwasher safe to 70°C, excluding the bamboo lid. Our sports lid 2.0, sipper lid 2.0 and free pour lids are top-shelf dishwasher safe.
Bamboo is a renewable natural product, there will always be natural variations in colour, tone and grain ensuring no two MontiiCo bottle lids look exactly the same. NEVER put the bamboo lid in the dishwasher. Putting your bamboo lid in the dishwasher WILL damage the finish and void your warranty. Hand wash only and always air dry thoroughly.
HOW DO I STORE MY BOTTLE?
Always store your MontiiCo bottles and cups empty, and completely dry inside. We recommend storing your empty bottles without the lid affixed.
DO YOU SELL REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR MY BOTTLE?
Yes! We sell replacement parts here.
DOES THE PAINT ON MY BOTTLE CONTAIN LEAD?
No way. All MontiiCo painted products are nontoxic, safe and durable.
ARE MONTIICO BOTTLES SUITABLE FOR HOT DRINKS?
All of our drink bottles are double-walled, vacuum insulated (also known as thermally insulated), meaning they are suitable for hot and cold drinks – perfect for year round use. The wide mouth opening does mean you need to be EXTRA careful with hot liquids. Sipper lid, sports and free pour not suitable for hot drinks. MontiiCo bottles provide 12 hours of warming. Some tips to get max warming:
- Pre warm the bottle just prior to use with boiling water. Attach lid and let stand for 10 minutes, then empty.
- After pre warming, fill your bottle, and replace lid for maximum insulation efficiency.
- Keep lid in place as much as possible to keep your beverage warm.
WARNING: Always exercise caution with hot beverages to avoid burns and scalds. Wide mouth bottles are NOT recommended for use to serve hot beverages to children.
ARE MONTIICO BOTTLES SUITABLE FOR FIZZY DRINKS?
You can use our Insulated Tumblers for fizzy/carbonated drinks! We don't recommend using carbonated drinks in your MontiiCo bottle, as the pressure build up and may cause injury depending on how the bottle is being stored and which lid is being used.
WHAT ARE MONTIICO BOTTLES AND CUPS MADE FROM?
MontiiCo bottles are made from Stainless Steel (18/8 and 304), with a kid safe, scratch and dent resistant finish. Our original bamboo lid is also Stainless Steel, with an engraved bamboo topper and small silicone ring to ensure a water-tight seal. Our sports lid 2.0, sipper lid and free pour lids are made from BPA-free polypropylene (pp#5).
CAN I PUT MY MONTIICO BOTTLE IN THE FREEZER?
No. The force of liquids expanding as they freeze can cause your MontiiCo bottle to become deformed and can also break the weld that holds the bottle together, so we strongly advise against it. Freezing any MontiiCo bottle or cup will void your manufacturers warranty.
