Water might not be the most exciting drink by itself, but the best fruit infuser water bottles can make staying hydrated as delicious as it is healthy. In the roundup below, I’ve selected a variety of water bottles with removable fruit infusers. Whether you’re shopping for everyday use, workouts, or time in the great outdoors, there’s a water bottle with your name on it.
Obviously all of the water bottles below contain some mechanism for infusing your water with natural flavor, but materials vary so it's worth taking a closer look at the options.
- BPA-Free Plastic: Plastic is lightweight and more durable than glass, making it a solid option for everyday use and hitting the gym. Some plastic bottles are dishwasher safe as well. Plus, plastic water bottles tend to be the most affordable. While many plastics contain BPA — a chemical that can negatively affect hormones — Eastman Tritan plastic is manufactured without BPA. That’s why I’ve made sure all of the plastic bottles featured below are made with this type of plastic.
- Glass: This naturally BPA-free material is often considered the safest material for reusable water bottles. Borosilicate glass, in particular, is even less susceptible to toxins than regular glass, and it’s more shock-resistant as well, making it less likely to shatter. Another upside — glass is usually dishwasher safe. However, glass is still less durable than plastic or stainless-steel, so it’s probably not the water bottle you’ll want to reach for high-impact activities.
- Stainless Steel: Incredibly durable and naturally BPA-free, stainless steel is an ideal choice for hikers, bikers, and any other type of outdoor enthusiast. These types of water bottles tend to be the best at keeping hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold as well — especially if you go with a vacuum-insulated stainless steel pick. That said, they’re a heavier carry (especially if insulated) and they may require hand-washing.
All of the picks on this list have leak-proof lids and all come highly rated on Amazon.
