Zoku, LLC

Vacuum Insulated Stainless Steel Bottle

Zoku LLC’s stainless steel bottle was developed with an eye on design, featuring clean, contemporary lines and bright colors. To support today’s consumer need for personalization within the category, the bottle is offered in 26 different SKUs, including three sizes and a variety of colors. In addition, the bottle utilizes new technology for practical functionality to keep drinks cold or hot.

It was this focus on product development that propelled the beverageware to be named the Best in Category winner in the Tabletop, Serveware & Beverageware category in this year’s Housewares Design Awards.

“Daily hydration is increasingly important to consumers, with portable beverage bottles becoming an everyday essential. Our stainless steel bottle ties in with contemporary design trends, and the desire for easy-care products that make life more convenient,” said Ken Zorovich, president, Zoku LLC. “The sophisticated style is the first thing people notice. The superior functionality is what they appreciate over time. This combination brings something new to a trend-forward category.”

The double-wall insulated stainless steel bottle is made with heavy-gauge 18/8 stainless steel and features rapid-lock technology, which makes it leak-proof. Depending on the size of the bottle, Zorovich said, it can keep drinks cold for 30 or 70 hours, or hot for 10 to 15 hours. It is also BPA and phthalate free.

The bottle also features an easy-grip cap, making it quick and easy to open and close. The smooth stainless steel mouthpiece is thread-free for drinking comfort and cleanability. It also includes a removable paracord lanyard to make the bottle easy to carry.

“Contemporary styling and visual appeal make this more than a bottle— it’s a quality accessory that expresses your personality,” said Zorovich.
