Ever since I was young I would spend most of my weekends walking in the Yorkshire Dales with my unwilling sisters, parents and my Auntie Linda. We would be gone all day and often take a bag full of food to have a picnic along the way. When it was colder (because we walked no matter the weather) my Auntie Linda would often bring a flask of tomato soup for us to have. A cup of tea for us girls wasn’t going to cut it! Many of the times the soup would make it to our picnic destination lukewarm and unfortunately, sometimes it was cold. My parents frequently go walking and still enjoy having a hot drink with their picnic, but their flask isn’t up to scratch. That is where Klean Kanteen came in to help…
Who Are Klean Kanteen?
Klean Kanteen is a family run business on a mission to do everything they can to help change the world. I am not talking about bringing down the bad guys or fighting crime but they are fighting a big battle we all could do with getting behind. The people over at Klean Kanteen are fighting the ever-growing problem we have with plastic waste.
They are creating products that aren’t only long lasting and plastic free but are working hard to combat environmental issues where they can. They are conscious about the materials they use and what they are putting back into the environment. The company works hard to work with charities, people who need help and of course every way possible to save the planet we live on.
The Klean Kanteen TKPro Flask
While I haven’t always been conscious of what my small life could be doing to the earth, environment and the long-lasting effects I am learning. We see plenty of products produced that we review and often see so much unnecessary packaging for something that really doesn’t need it. I was so impressed to hear Klean Kanteen are creating amazing quality products that are built to last. The flask arrived in a box with some tissue paper (from what I can only guess is recycled in some way). I appreciated that the flask was protected but didn’t have lots of bells and whistles in terms of packaging.
I decided to open the flask and have a look at it and test it out for myself before giving it away to my mum ready for Mother’s Day. The flask is a completely different design from any I had used before, in a good way. There were no buttons to press down or fiddle with to keep the cool locked in or to even open the top. It was as simple as screwing off the lid which is also the cup. The size is quite a handy large size for a flask which I loved!
Once I got to the actual opening of the flask I realised the design of the screw part of the cup, instead of lines to screw into place there were metal dots. It was a completely new way of screwing on a lid but made complete sense as that is usually made with plastic. I then took off the lid to the flask itself ready to make my steaming flask of tea.
The flask has so many benefits and I am not just talking about the environmental ones. The flask is built so that you don’t physically have to screw off the lid to get the hot water out. I love this concept as it preserves the heat in the flask keeping your water hot for longer. The flask is a great concept for anyone looking to go camping, hiking, walking or just likes to have a supply of hot water.
The .75L flask will keep your water hot for up 28 hours and icy cold for up to 90 hours. The flask is BPA free and free of toxins, making it safe for you and your family as well as the environment. The flask is extremely sturdy and surprisingly isn’t that heavy to say it is made from stainless steel. It is the perfect companion for any adventurer.
Overall I am really impressed with the Klean Kanteen TKPro .75L insulated flask as it is so handy to have. The flask really has gone up and beyond expectations and is innovative and useful. I am moved by the background of Klean Kanteen and everything they are trying to achieve with their business. My parents will be really pleased with this and think it will change their weekend walks in the Yorkshire Dales for the better. I know my dad will be planning to take it for his trip to Scotland when he goes wild camping.
