Stanley The Quencher Tumbler

When it comes to water cups, the Stanley tumbler reigns supreme. The internet has gone bananas for this bottle recently, but the brand has been around for more than 100 years, proving it has a tried-and-true product line. The recycled stainless steel receptacle holds 40 ounces and comes in an array of vibrant colors. The handle and straw make for easy sipping, but nothing is quite as impressive as its insulation capabilities. Your drink will stay cold for 11 hours and hot for seven.

Our associate shopping editor, Madi Koetting, tested the internet-famous cup for herself. “I only have it to fill my tumbler once in the morning and one more time in the afternoon to meet my hydration goals,” she writes in her Stanley tumbler review. “The best part? My water never goes warm—even after eight hours.”
