How is the Tumbler Holding up after Six Months?
I was really excited to take this puppy home and after a quick wash, it immediately took residence on my desk. Sleek, simple, practical, and pretty, I immediately started drinking a lot more than previously, when I was using a glass. I didn’t get up as much anymore for refills, so I did have to remember to do stretches at my desk more regularly, but that was the only drawback of switching from glass to cup.
The bottom of the cup is lined with a ring of rubber, which means that it doesn’t slip as much as my glass used to. I did knock it over a couple of times, but the seal that runs under its lid kept all the water in; a couple of drops came out of the straw and some from the lid where the straw goes in, but it was nothing compared to what would have happened with a glass. ::shudder::
The cup is said to be isolated and boy does it keep my ice water cold. I would have to refill ice a couple of times in the afternoon when using a glass; with this cup, the ice only melts completely after a good 3-4 hours.
It seems like this cup was turning out to be perfect, until I started noticing the polka dots scratching off, however careful I was with it. People who know me can attest to this: I really take good care of my things. Like, really good care of them. But whatever I did with this cup, the scratches keep accumulating. If my nails—which I keep short—scrape the cup even gently as I reach for it; if I place any item too close to it; or if it tips over—it will have at least one more scratch on it.
If you take as good care of your things as I do and like them to stay as pristine as possible, then no; whatever you do, the dots on this tumbler will scratch off. But if you don’t mind that, then you can definitely add it to your list of cups to consider purchasing.
