The high-quality material also ensures that the Turtleneck® Straw is at least as hygienic to clean as, for example, a glass straw. Because our stainless steel is very robust and durable and can easily withstand extremely high temperatures in the dishwasher - germs and viruses are removed just as safely as beverage residues. The ease of cleaning of our Turtleneck® Straws has also been certified by the independent testing agency Intertek®. Click here for the exciting report!
How durable is the kink of the Turtleneck® Straw?
The Turtleneck® Straw can be used as a drinking straw forever even with normal use.
But of course nothing is indestructible – like everything in life. Even we cannot switch off physics. With a high bending frequency of hundreds of times per second, the resulting frictional heat can cause the material to become brittle.
Why does the Turtleneck® Straw have such a large diameter?
Our outer diameter of 8.5mm is comparable to that of many other paper and glass straws. The diameter of our drinking straw allows sufficient water flow for safe cleaning in the dishwasher.
How stable is the Turtleneck® Straw?
To produce the Turtleneck® Straw, we only use food-safe stainless steel with the material quality seal DIN 1.4301. Unlike glass or cardboard, the corrugation makes it flexible and at the same time extremely stable and robust.
Is the Turtleneck® Straw also suitable for children and seniors?
Definitely! Thanks to its maximum safety, its feel and the flexibility of the rounded mouthpiece, the Turtleneck® Straw is also perfect for children, seniors and people with disabilities. Thanks to our high-quality, shatterproof stainless steel, it is free of toxic chemicals, pollutants, petroleum and BPA and will not shatter if you bite. That's why our Turtleneck® Straw has also been certified by Intertek® as mechanically safe and chemically safe.
What advantages does the Turtleneck® Straw have over plastic and glass?
The special thing about our Turtleneck® Straw is its flexible mouthpiece combined with its reusability. Nobody has ever managed to combine these two characteristics! Because we don't want to forego any functional or design aspects, even with reusable alternatives. Unlike its plastic twin, the Turtleneck® Straw is reusable and does not contain harmful BPA. Due to its stability and resistance to breakage as well as its special bendability, it also stands out from the glass straw as a reusable alternative without sacrifice. This meant we were able to eliminate all the weaknesses of previous alternatives!
What stainless steel is the Turtleneck® Straw made of?
For the Turtleneck® Straw we only use stainless steel with the material quality seal 1.4301 - the gold standard in the food industry. It is a stainless steel that has a high proportion of chromium (18% - 20%) and nickel (8% - 10.5%). These two components make stainless steel an everyday material that can be found in every kitchen. Chromium ensures the corrosion resistance of stainless steel. In combination with nickel, the stainless steel becomes even more resistant.
Good to know: The nickel content is not a disadvantage! On the contrary: the higher the nickel content, the more dishwasher-safe the stainless steel is.
Does the Turtleneck® Straw rust?
No. Our Turtleneck® Straw is made of stainless steel of material quality DIN 1.4301 - the gold standard in the food industry, which can therefore be found in every kitchen. The high proportion of chromium (18% - 20%) in combination with a high proportion of nickel (8% - 10.5%) ensure extreme corrosion resistance and dishwasher safety.
