Why is it called que Bottle?
que Bottles were so named because they collapse into a cube size and they are cute. Our middle name is “qute”!
What is que Bottle made of?
There is no plastic in que Bottle, so it's 100% plastic-free. The body of the bottle is made of FDA/LFGB approved food grade silicone, which is non-toxic and BPA free. The cap is made of 18/8 food-grade stainless steel. Everything is 100% safe to use, rest assured.
Can I put hot liquid in the bottle?
Yes, silicone is safe for hot liquids up to 450°F (230°C). No burning, no melting. But we do not recommend using it for liquid temperatures higher than 140°F (60°C) to avoid burning your hand while holding it.
Can I put it in the freezer?
The que Bottle is made from silicone, which is a material rated for very low and very high temperatures. That said, water expands when frozen, so you shouldn’t fill your que Bottle completely when you freeze it. You can also fit ice cubes into your que Bottle with its wide mouth opening!
Can I put it in the microwave?
The silicone in the bottle is microwave safe, but the stainless steel in the cap and embedded mouth piece are NOT. Don’t put your que Bottle in the microwave (unless you want a free light show!)
How do I clean que Bottle?
que Bottle is completely dishwasher safe, so you can easily clean the bottle and cap using a dishwasher. Otherwise, you can stick it in boiling water (cap off) to deep clean for 15 minutes. The silicone material is non-porous so the inside should not get too dirty, no matter the beverage!
How big are que Bottles and how much do they weigh?
Our 20 fl oz bottle is 4.8’’ x 2.8’’x 2.8’’ collapsed and 8.4’’x2.8’’x2.8’’ expanded, weighing about 6 oz.
Our 12 fl oz bottle is: 4.0’’ x 2.6’’x 2.6’’ collapsed and 6.8’’x2.6’’x2.6’’ expanded, weighing about 5 oz.
Will que Bottle fit in my cup holder?
Yes, both sizes will fit in any cupholder, expanded or collapsed. Feel free to put it in your car, on your bike, and of course in the smallest purse or travel bag you have!
How much do they hold?
que Bottles come in two capacity sizes. Our small holds 12 fl oz (355 ml) expanded and 5 fl oz (150ml) collapsed. Perfect for kids and short walks. Our larger bottle holds 20oz (600 ml) expanded, 8 fl oz (235 ml) collapsed. A bit more than your standard water bottle, but way cooler than standard.
Does it keep hot and cold for a long time?
que Bottles are not designed to insulate liquids, hot or cold. However, they will still keep your drinks warm or cool for longer than average.
Is there any damage to the bottle if I collapse it too many times?
No, there won’t be any damage caused by frequent collapsing and expanding because silicone is an extremely flexible material. Although we haven’t done a specific test to get the exact number of times, we have a pretty good feeling that it’s going to be in the million range.
Is the bottle hygienic?
Silicone as a material does not have any open pores that can harbor bacteria. On top of that, you can also wash your bottle in the dishwasher. It's completely safe!
Is que Bottle recyclable?
Yes, silicone and stainless steel in the bottle are both recyclable. Let us know if you need help!
Does que Bottle ship outside of the US?
