Single-walled Food Container by Klean Kanteen®
With Food on the Road.
Transporting food, like freshly prepared dishes or even soups, can be an adventure, especially if one wishes to do without the usual plastic containers. An absolutely (soup)tight alternative that is much more durable are Klean Kanteen®’s stainless steel food containers. They can be closed air-tight and leak-proof with an externally threaded lid, so they are good for transporting as well as storing food. And in order to remind you of what you’ve put in their light protected innards, you can mark them with a coloured wax pencil. For this purpose, a flat surface has been stamped in the lid, so the marking will not be wiped off when containers are stacked or transported.
With its stainless steel vessels, the California family run firm of Klean Kanteen® offers clean alternatives to one-way cups and bottles. In ten years what started out as water bottles has become a broad palette of vessels for transporting food in stainless steel: the material of choice because it is neutral in taste and odour and comes without either aluminium or Bisphenol-A (BPA). In contrast to aluminium and plastic, stainless steel is considered an inert material which will neither chemically react with food nor release particles. Vessels made of stainless steel are extremely stable and long-lasting. The containers from Klean Kanteen® are functional and, a plus, attractively designed. Klean Kanteen® has their vessels made in China where they regularly control the production facilities in order to guarantee that their firm’s environment-friendly standards and guidelines for fair working arrangements and conditions are being maintained. As a member of "1% for the Planet", Klean Kanteen® contributes at least one percent of its revenues for environmental projects or educational support from not-for-profit organisations.
Steel does not equal steel.
Klean Kanteen® only processes rust proof 18/8-stainless steel, and they insist upon applying it in a larger thickness than is customary, which makes Klean Kanteen® products significantly more robust than other stainless steel vessels. They'll stand up to a beating without being any less portable. Even the threads are mostly made of stainless steel, which also contributes to the long life of the vessels.
The vessels are painted if and only if differentiation is called for, good examples are the drinking tumblers: in addition to the stainless steel version they come in four colours. All lettering is laser engraved. The bottle caps are made of stainless steel, bamboo and silicone, as is used in medical technology.
Rounded off corners. Smooth threads.
To be reused over and over again the vessels have to be easy to clean. Klean Kanteen® manufactures them with rounded off corners and smooth, widely spaced threads. The surface insides are electro-polished and so smooth that dirt has a hard time clinging to them. And if something should indeed dry up in the vessel, the inside is easily accessible for cleaning through the wide opening. Except for the vacuum-insulated ones the stainless steel vessels can be put in the dishwasher. Please, wash the double-walled vessels by hand because it can’t be guaranteed that the vacuum between the walls will withstand the major temperature differences in the dishwasher; the same applies to the painted surfaces.
