Sistema Twister Bottle
Advantages: Doesn't leak, easy to use, my children love it!
Always on the lookout for a bottle for my son's lunch box that doesn't leak I yet again took a gamble when I came across this plain looking bottle in Asda. If I'm completely honest it wasn't the design that grabbed me but the reduced price of £1.50. We have given a few different bottles a go with some lovely pictures or designs on it and all have leaked so it was time for a change. And how smug do I feel now I have finally found that bottle that doesn't leak and my son is no longer required to hold his lunchbox upright at all times!
The Sistema twister bottle has a twist top mechanism which for us is something different to all the previous bottles we have tried. To simply open it, you twist the collar of the bottle and the top pops up with an unsealed hole to drink out of. Then twist it the other way and it pops back down sealing the bottle. Simple yet it seems to give a perfect seal and no leakages occur leaving a very happy boy and mum!
The bottle my son has is the 460ml bottle in the aqua blue colour. I feel for a full day at school the 460ml size is perfect for my son. He never quite manages to finish all his drink but there is usually very little left. With the bottle sealed it measures about 18.5cms in length and fits perfectly in my son's Cars lunchbox. The bottles don't come with any fancy pattern designs on them but they are available in some vibrant colours, I have seen the aqua, lime green and bright pink colours available. The bottle does also have side grooves to it making it easier and more comfortable to hold. As with most things these days this product is dishwasher safe although I can only tell you what the manufacturer says as I 'm not lucky enough to have a dishwasher! It is also freezer safe.
From the moment we got the bottle home my son loved it. I thought I would have been greeted with disgruntles about the fact it didn't have cars on or some other fad but there wasn't a single one. My son, aged four and a half was just very pleased with the new twist and open bottle he now had. He even went as far as saying he quite liked the colour! Straight away he found it very easy to use and twist up and down. My three year old son has used it from time to time and to begin with was a little unsure on how to open it but he soon got the hang of it and it wasn't long till he requested a big boy bottle of his own. My eldest has used his bottle in his lunch box everyday and we have yet to have a leakage problem four months on. Both my son's like drinking out of the bottle and haven't moaned once about how quick or slow it goes.
From a parents point of view the bottle doesn't leak and the boys like it so I do too! It isn't too bad to clean. To get the lid off you twist it to open and then keep twisting it till it comes off. It is fairly easy to clean and hasn't caused any problems yet. I would highly recommend to any parent or any adult for that matter if you are after a leak free bottle.
Summary: A leak free bottle I would highly recommend.
