Cuppow is an American company, and they created a product that helps to reduce our eco-footprint. They started it as a way of making it easier to drink from a canning jar while you're mobile, since the open mouth area doesn't help keep it spill-free! With the Cuppow, one can use any regular mouth or wide-mouth canning jar. The drinking lid adaptor for canning and mason jars is a way of saving money, no more using Styrofoam cups or expensive travel mugs! The Cuppow products are BPA, BPS, and phthalates free, and they are made from food-grade polypropylene. Their key words are environmentally aware, family friendly, and American made. The drinking lid adaptor is dishwasher friendly, though I hand-washed the two that we received. You can use straws with them (ignore my plastic one, the glass straws that we have are smoothie-sized!), and they recommend paper or stainless steel straws. Their site is quite helpful for more information at Cuppow FAQ. Also, I noticed on their site that they are coming out with some colorful ones!! They do sell them in stores, and they do have a store locator on their site. They also sell them through their website online, too.
Our take on them: Steven liked using it, though we didn't have any pint wide-mouth jars in the house. (I had bought 4 half-pint jar, planning to use them for a craft, and son used one of them for the wide-mouth drinking lid adaptor.) I used the regular mouth adaptor, and put a straw in mine. We both were drinking cold liquids with them, though the lid adaptors can be used with both hot and cold. I'm more of a cold-liquid drinking kind of person! I like the ease of using and cleaning them, and the ability to use them with the jars. Do I recommend them? Yes, I do!
