Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQs. If you have any other burning questions that remain unanswered, drop us a message at and we’ll get back to you.


Is it leakproof? 100% you can count on that one. If you have any issues, just reach out and we’ll sort it as soon as possible.

Can I use hot drinks? Yes, it’s double-walled insulated so you can drink whatever you like and wash away the leftovers easy as pie. Hot, cold, flavoured, you name it.

Is it dishwasher safe? Yes, Breakbottles are dishwasher safe and actually fit on the top rack. We recommend using an eco setting and putting the bottle in the top rack.

Does it fit ice? Yes, it easily fits ice at the central opening so you can take your ice cold drinks with you wherever you go.

Can I buy Breakbottles for my business? Yes, just head to our cobrand page for more details or drop us a message at to hear how we can work together.

How big is the bottle? The bottle holds 550ml (19oz) of fluid either hot or cold. With the lid attached, the bottle is 240mm tall and 71mm in diameter.

How much is delivery? Delivery is free for all UK orders. Overseas delivery ranges from £8-15 depending on location and is free for orders over £110.

What is the tether for? It means the lid never gets misplaced, it acts as a carry handle and means that you can store it with the lid off when not in use to ensure good airflow inside and ensure that no condensation, bacteria or bad smells build up whilst you’re not watching.

Can’t I just use a bottle brush to clean my bottle? There are two reasons your bottle starts to smell, one is that isn’t clean and the other that it isn’t fully dry as the moisture causes bacteria and bad smells. With a bottle brush you can’t fully dry the inside but with Breakbottle’s handy twist open design you can.

We also want to make sure that the bottle can be cleaned whatever you have with you, making it a convenient bottle for everyday life. Also, bottle brushes get thrown away too which sort of defeats the whole point of reusables…

Where is Breakbottle made? Breakbottle is designed in London and is made in China at a facility that practices ethical, sustainable and high quality manufacturing practices.

You might think “why didn’t you get a supplier closer to home”? In order to produce insulated steel bottles of the standard and at the scale that we require, the fact of the matter is that there really aren’t many other places where this is possible.

Ultimately, we chose a supplier who upholds our high standards on sustainability and workplace practices who also creates really premium products and shares our vision in making a new easy clean reusable bottle.

Can I put Breakbottle in the freezer? We don’t recommend it and if it is full of water it will likely damage the bottle. Because of the insulation, a better way to get your water cold is by adding ice cubes via the twist open feature part way down.

Can I hook a carabiner to the bottle tether? Yes, it is possible to secure the bottle to a carabiner for easier carrying.

Will Breakbottle fit in my cup holder? While there is no universal cup holder standard, we have designed Breakbottle to fit in the vast majority of cup holders as it’s just plain annoying when other bottles don’t.
