As seen in many teens hands the famous Stanleys.

We all know about the famous Stanley quencher cup that has been blasting through social media. The brand Stanley comes in different types of styles, sizes, and colors. There are varying opinions of Stanley‘s, like is it really worth your while?

Is it worth the money?

Personally I love my Stanley cup, specifically my Cream Gloss Deco Collection Quencher H2.0 Flowstate Tumbler 40 oz. I don’t have the best drinking water habits and my Stanley definitely helps to improve it. In a matter of days, I went from barely drinking a bottle of water to finishing a 40 0z cup. My cup comes in handy at the gym, errands, and school. The grab and go handle, definitely helps out with carrying it around. My water can stay cold for a good ten hours. I fill up my cup with ice cubes and cold water in the morning and by the end of the day, it is still cold. If the quencher is not for you, they come in different styles such as The IceFlow Flip Straw Tumbler. I also have it, but my favorite will always be the quencher.

Another amazing feature about Stanley, is how the media recently found out it is fireproof. Danielle Lettering’s car had caught on fire and was destroyed. But her tumbler remained intact and even the beverage stayed cold. When Stanley heard about this horrific event, they reached out and offered to buy Lettering a new car.

Cons

The only con I have for my quencher is if it’s knocked over the water will spill. I feel that Stanley should have a product that can stop the spilling. Having a blocker on the cap can help the product.  You will also notice when you are trying to clean the day, you have to take it apart. If you do not, then there can be built up mold.

Depending on what style, size, and color the prices can range. Quenchers can range from $35-$45. IceFlows can range from $30-$90.

Where can I find it?

Stanley can be found in stores such as Dick’s Sporting Goods and Target. It can also be found online on the Stanley website, and Amazon. There are also sellers on TikTok shop, but those can be fake, so make sure to do your research.

Competitors

Before these cups were popular, Hydro Flasks were trending. They became very popular among young adults because of VSCO girls. Not only did these girls showcase how fashionable these cups could be, but they decorated it with stickers. Of all the fame, it made the prices shoot up to $40-$45.

Another competitor is YETI, ranging the prices from $25-$45. This amount is for the straw tumbler style. Sofia Sokolow, a junior at Colonia High School, commented, “Honestly I feel like all the water bottles in that price range of $35-$50 such as Yeti, Hydro Flask, and Stanley all do the same job, but they’re still very effective.”

Care for your quencher

Quenchers are dishwasher safe, but if you prefer hand washing, make sure to use mild dish soap and warm water. It is best to take apart your lid and wash all parts because mold can grow in those areas. Like any other utensil, you need to clean the straw. If you would like to purchase another, you can find them at Amazon and especially at Stanley. Stanleys are BPA free; built for life. This means their durable gear is created to stand the test of time, backed up by lifetime guarantee, and sustainable– reusable by nature.
