Why is stainless steel better than aluminum?
While aluminum is lightweight, it leaches toxic chemicals when it comes in contact with anything acidic. Therefore, aluminum has to be lined with something to make sure the contents are safe for drinking. Usually it is lined with plastic which can leach chemicals, baked on epoxy, or ceramic which can crack.
Does the paint on a Kanteen contain lead?

When we debuted our colored bottles, the most important thing to us at Klean Kanteen was to find a safe and durable paint that also looked dynamite. We reviewed and tested dozens of different paints and selected an acrylic paint that contains no toxins or lead.

We test the paint regularly and we’re in the process of getting it certified by NSF International, an organization that helps protect the public by certifying products and developing national and international standards governing the production of food, water and consumer goods.

Though our paint is safe, we recommend our stainless steel finish bottles for small children who like to chew on things.

My child chewed on a colored Klean Kanteen and might have eaten some paint. Should I be concerned?

No. The paint on Klean Kanteen bottles is a nontoxic, acrylic, resin-based finish that’s mostly water and is totally free of lead and toxic chemicals. So you’ve got nothing to worry about if your child ingested some paint! That said, we do recommend the stainless steel finish bottles for small children who like to chew on things.

What do you consider normal wear and tear for the paint on colored Klean Kanteens?

Under normal use, the paint on the new colored Klean Kanteens will not flake or chip off. When we tested paints for our colored bottles, safety was our first concern but durability was a close second.

The paint performs well in lab tests. Many of us at Klean Kanteen also use the colored bottles so we’ve been putting them to the test in the real world too. Sure, if you drop your Klean Kanteen or jam it into a metal water bottle cage, you can scratch it. It’s also possible to scrape off the paint if you try hard enough, just like any other painted surface.

But if your paint is flaking or peeling off, you might have gotten a bottle from a bad batch, which does happen occasionally. If that’s the case, it’s covered by our warranty and we’ll replace it at no cost to you. Contact our returns department.

To prolong the life of your colored Kanteen, we recommend hand washing it with mild detergent. And if you want the ultimate finish in terms of durability, you can’t beat our original electropolished Kanteens.

Why is the sports cap made of plastic and not stainless steel?
We chose polypropylene #5 because it contains zero Bisphenol A (link to the BPA page here), a chemical that leaches from some kinds of plastic, which has been linked to various diseases. Polypropylene has no known leaching characteristics and is softer than other types of plastic. If you'd rather avoid plastic coming in contact with your drinks altogether, a stainless steel screw-on lid is available as an accessory.
What is stainless steel? 
          Stainless steel is an iron-containing alloy made    from some of the basic elements found on earth: iron ore, chromium, silicon, nickel, carbon, nitrogen, and manganese. The properties of the final metal change depending on varying amounts of these elements. There are more than 57 stainless steels recognized as standard alloys on the market.

Klean Kanteens are constructed from high-quality, food grade 304 stainless steel, which has a low nickel content. Stainless steel has excellent resistance to stain or rust due to its chromium content making it the material of choice among the food processing, dairy and brewing industries. Stainless steel is easy to clean, durable, inert and sanitary.

Can I fill a Kanteen with acidic beverages such as apple juice or orange juice?
Do Kanteens sweat?
Yes, Kanteens do sweat, just like any other single-walled container. The best solution to naturally occurring condensation is to wrap your Kanteen with an insulated sleeve. We've partnered with Built NY® to offer you a wide array of insulated totes. Whatever size Kanteen you prefer, there's a color and a style you'll love.
Can I put hot liquids in my Klean Kanteen?
No. Klean Kanteens are single walled and not for use with hot liquids because there's nothing to insulate the bottle and you could burn yourself. Warm beverages can be used at your own personal comfort level.
Can I put my Kanteen in the freezer?
We do not recommend it and it will void the one-year warranty against manufacturer defects.
Can I put my Kanteen on a stove?
In a pinch, the stainless steel Kanteens can be placed on a fire or a stove as long as you take the cap off. Do not do this with a colored bottle, as it may damage the paint.
Is the Kanteen a Thermos™?
No. A Kanteen is a single-walled bottle and has little insulating properties. Keep in mind that if your drink is too hot, the Kanteen will be too hot to touch and may burn you.
