FAQ on s/s vacuum containers

Frequently Asked Questions on s/s vacuum containers

Q: What type of stainless steel doesHono use?

A: All our stainless steel drinkingcontainers are made of a premium food-grade type 304 stainless steel containing18% chromium and 8% nickel with documented raw materials testing. This materialis chosen for its consistent quality and performance characteristics of notleaching chemicals, staining, corroding or rusting. The inside of our bottlesare finished using an electrolytic charge and dolomitic sand blasting.

Q: Do Hono stainless steel drinkingcontainers have an inner BPA-based lacquer coating like aluminum ones?

A: No, our containers are made ofpremium type 304 18/8 stainless steel which is used for many food and medicalapplications; it does not require a lacquer layer and will not leach chemicals,stain, corrode or rust.

Q: How do I know your stainless steeldrinking containers meet International Food Container Standards?

A: We have a testing chain-of-custodyprocess to ensure we are delivering drinking containers that meet internationalfood-grade standards.

Q: What is the “line” I can see insideHono Stainless drinking containers?

A: This is a leadfree, argon gaswelding seam from the construction processes. We use a premium type 304, grade18/8 stainless steel with raw materials testing. The rolled steel sheet isformed into a tube and welded using leadfree argon gas. The stainless tubesthen go through a series of hydraulic expansion and heat-treating processes tocreate the specific model shapes. Finishing of the inner container is done witha combination of dolomitic sand blasting and an electrolytic charge. Unlikealuminum drinking containers, stainless steel is inert and does not require alacquer coating on the inner surface; often these contain BPA.

Q: What is the plastic in Honodrinking containers made of?

A: We use a tested #5 food-gradepolypropylene (pp) in the lids and collars; #5 PP is a plastic with gooddurability and no known leaching characteristics.

Q: Can I put hot liquids in my singlewall stainless steel bottle?

A: No, our single wall containersprovide no insulation and present a burn hazard if used with hot liquids.Consider one of our insulating vacuum bottles for use with HOT liquids.

Q: Will the stainless steel reactwith acidic beverages like juice?

A: No, stainless steel will notreact, however it is not recommended that acidic beverages be store containerfor long period of time. If you do, we recommend cleaning them using a bristlebrush and a solution of white vinegar and baking soda prior to washing again inhot soapy water, rinsing well and then drying.

Q: Can stainless steel bottles be puton a stove?

A: No, doing so presents a burnhazard and in addition will melt the PP collar.
