Cuppow Ball Mason Jar (Wide Mouth) Review
One of the biggest challenges with juicing is how to properly store juice to maximize shelf life because let’s be honest not everyone has time to prepare so it makes sense to whip up small batch and keep it cool inside a refrigerator so you’ll just grab and go.
Unlike store bought juices that are pasteurized and contain preservatives that extend their shelf life freshly made juice will only last for up to 3 days – that’s if you use a slow juicer and properly store it.
One of the best tools for storing juice is a mason jar. It’s made of glass so you don’t need to worry about Bisphenol A (or BPA) seeping into your juice and the most important part (in my opinion) is the lid that keeps air out of the jar, when air stays inside the bottle the process of spoilage speeds up because oxygen feeds on the microorganisms that cause foods to go bad.
The reason why we’re avoiding store bought juices, a lot of these products are pasteurized, meaning it has been heated and that heat kills the live enzymes and microorganisms that we want to consume from fruits and vegetables.
Also these contain added sugars that are the main culprit of type-2 diabetes, high cholesterol and weight gain.
A few weeks ago Cuppow contacted me and asked if I could test out their product the Cuppow Glass Travel Mug and of course I said yes and here it is because I want to see their new product and I’m getting something for free (disclaimer).
I’ve previously bought a mason jar and when you put the two side by side, this mason jar is wider but just a tad bit shorter.
In terms of how much liquid it can store, both will roughly be able to store the same amount of liquid – 16 ounces or 475ml.
The wide mouth feature though makes it much easier to clean, especially if you have bigger hands.
Another feature that I find interesting is the plastic lids that come with this. The other mason jars that I have don’t have this and it makes drinking juice or whatever drink you put in there a little less messy.
Lastly, this comes with a sleeve. At first glance it may just look like eye candy but I think it’s a nice addition because it gives you a more solid grip and prevent slippage (if you’re drinking something cold). If you’re drinking something hot like coffee or tea, it provides that layer of protection that keeps your hands from getting burned.
If there’s something that can be improved upon maybe Cuppow could come up with a Mason jar that has a handle on the side similar to a mug just for hot beverages.
Overall this is a solid product that you could use to store your fresh smoothies, juices or protein shakes that you could bring to work or at the gym.
