What is a tumbler? 



A tumbler is an insulated piece of drinkware that can be used on the go. It can come as a mug or cup in a range of sizes from 6oz to 30oz. The materials it can be made from are glass, stainless steel, and plastic. But stainless steel is the most popular as it allows you to keep your liquid at a temperature you desire!

Tumblers can also have the feature of having sip lids and handles! Beating your average water bottle - making it a popular choice in society.


What is a tumbler used for? 

The main purpose of a tumbler is to keep your drink hot or cold while you’re on the go.

You can be on walk on a beautiful summer’s day needing a cold drink or a winter morning before work in need of some hot tea. Tumblers are a great choice to meet both needs!

With the secureness and strength of tumblers it allows you to go on any adventure you wish, without the worry of it breaking or leaking (and yes work can sometimes be an adventure.)


Benefits of using a tumbler?


Other than having a cold or hot drink on the go. What is so beneficial about using a tumbler? Well, here are 5 benefits for you to plunge into.

  • Plastic water bottles can produce harmful chemicals within your water. Even though companies are starting to go BPA free (BPA is a harmful toxin), there are other chemicals that can come into the water when it is exposed to sunlight or left out for too long – this can affect hormones in the body.

  • Not only are plastic water bottles damaging to us but also to our planet. In most cases a bottle that is dumped into a landfill will take 1000 years to decompose. On average 25 billion water bottles are used annually and 12% are recycled. Serious change is needed and using a tumbler would be a step in the right direction.
  • Plastic water bottles can grow harmful bacteria if not properly cleaned. However, Hydronairs tumblers are made with quality stainless steel. Making it much harder for bacteria to grow in our tumblers.
  • It will be much easier to save money when you have a tumbler. Instead of having to purchase a coffee each day (trust me it all adds up). You can have your nice hot coffee that you made for a much cheaper cost – making it a great alternative. Also consuming coffee in paper cups is not good for the environment as trees are cut down. So don’t be the cause but instead be the solution!
  • Drinking coffee in single use paper cups is not the most safe and secure way. This is due to it becoming flimsy and prone to spillage. Therefore, a tumbler from Hydronair is best option as they are durable, stable, travel safe and lightweight. Enjoying your hot coffee or any drink can be done with confidence.


What are the different types of tumblers?

Below you will find the 3 most common types of tumblers which are popular in society.

Straight Tumbler

Straight tumblers are a classic and current favourite here at Hydronair. With their sleek and easy to handle structure – straight tumblers are a crowd favourite.

There are many different sizing options consisting of: 12oz, 15oz, 20oz, 22oz, 25oz and 30 oz. Straight tumblers are extremely lightweight and can fit in your cardholders. Making them a great option for any on the go activities you have!


Kids Tumbler

You may think kids don’t need tumblers but let me tell you. They do! Having a tumbler for your child would help them to experience fresh drink cold or hot. Even coming in handy when your child may have a slight cold and needs to keep warm throughout the day.

Having a Kids 12oz tumbler which does this is a win in my books. So, keep your eyes peeled because this is coming soon to Hydronair.


Wine Tumbler

For experienced wine drinkers we know that the temperature of the wine has a dramatic effect on the taste. Therefore, having a 12oz wine tumbler will allow you to keep your favourite red or white wine at a temperature you desire.

I know what you are thinking, wine in a tumbler instead of a glass? That doesn’t sound right. But trust me it’s a great alternative and perhaps a safer one. Especially if you’re on the go you wouldn’t want to be carrying a glass as this is a hazard – as there is a higher chance of it breaking.
