We've provided a list of answers to common questions but if you have any further questions don't be afraid to drop us a line at hello@igluinc.com

Are iglu's suitable for all types of drinks?

Absolutely! Unlike aluminium and plastic bottles, the stainless steel we use to produce our reusable cups is naturally uncoated and ideal for holding and maintaining all types of liquids. Aluminium is not suitable for contact with food and drink (especially hot and acid ones), as it is highly toxic. Our products are made of 100% high quality 18/8 stainless steel and are BPA free.

Can iglu's go in the microwave?

No. All iglu products are made of stainless steel and are not safe to put in the microwave.

Are iglu's dishwasher safe?

For all of our coloured cups, washing in the dishwasher is not recommended to avoid damaging or discolouring the paint. We recommend hand washing your iglu.

Your iglu Food Pot however is safe to put in the top shelf of your dishwasher.

How do I clean my iglu?

iglu products should be cleaned regularly—we recommend washing your iglu cups and bottles with warm water and soap after every use and drying and storing it with the top off.

iglu cups and bottles are NOT dishwasher safe!

Running an iglu through the dishwasher can cause paint to fade and the vacuum seal to become ineffective.

After washing your iglu, we recommend that you dry your beverage container by airing it out upside down and storing it with the lid off. This will help keep your Iglu looking and smelling fresh

How can I clean my lid?

iglu lids are dishwasher safe (top shelf) or can be hand washed. 

Do iglu's fit car cup holders?
Annoyingly all car manufacturers make their cup holders different sizes. As a general guide our 350ml and 500ml bottles as well as our 16oz and 20oz coffee cups are cup holder friendly. Our 12oz coffee cup fits some larger cup holders (typically found in 4x4’s). The 1 litre bottle typically does not fit cup holders but may fit in your side door compartment.
Are iglu's leakproof?

We refer to our coffee cups as being splash proof or spill proof. They generally offer good protection from spills and can be turned upside without water escaping.

Our 12oz coffee cup has a vacuum lid which can be susceptible to pressure build up (see our helpful tips for further information).

Our 16oz and 20oz coffee cups, aswell as our 350ml and 500ml bottles have screw lids for added protection.

As a first step, we always recommend testing your iglu with cold water over your kitchen sink to make sure everything is working as it should for added peace of mind.

Are iglu's insulated?
Yes, all iglu's are vacuum insulated. Meaning they'll keep your favourites hot or cold for hours, whilst always being cool to the touch.
Can condensation form?
Our cups are double wall insulated, so the outside of its body will remain at room temperature, regardless of the temperature of its contents, whether it is icy or hot.
Why Food Grade (304) Steel?
We don't spare any effort when it comes to high-quality materials and innovative design. Stainless steel is safer than plastic and aluminium because they can be filled with any type of beverage without the risk of chemical contamination. That's why we choose to rely on 18/8 stainless steel (AISI type 304) to make our high-quality, long-lasting, cups.
How can I dispose / recycle my iglu?
iglu's are reusable objects designed to accompany you for as long as possible. If, however, you decide to recycle them, you can take them to your local recycling centre.
Where are iglu products made?

Our products are thoughtfully designed in the United Kingdom and responsibly made in China.

To the best of our knowledge China is the leading authority of vacuum technology. Whilst other countries have the ability to make single walled steel products, it's the double walled/vacuum technology where China currently leads the way.
