Long considered a trusted partner by parents in providing healthy food and drink options for kids, Thermos brand has brought its superior insulation technology to FOOGO Phases, a line of children’s products for ages six months and older. Freshness and safety go hand in hand. If not kept at the right temperature, food and beverages can spoil, causing potentially dangerous bacteria to form. FOOGO Phases stainless steel products feature THERMOS vacuum insulation which has been shown to inhibit the growth of bacteria in a laboratory test performed by Cornell University, and will keep beverages cold and fresh for ten hours. In addition to providing added protection from spoilage and food borne illnesses, Thermos brand offers parents extra peace of mind in knowing that FOOGO products use BPA-free materials. FOOGO Phases drinkware features interchangeable parts that fit all other Phases cups. With interchangeable lids and handles, FOOGO Phases drinkware easily adapts to a child’s changing needs. To clean, hand washing is recommended for best results, or top rack dishwasher safe.
This bottle keeps liquid cold or warm
I love using this for my toddler in the summer as well as the winter because it does a great job of keeping liquids the temperature that you want them to be. In the summer I can put her milk, juice, or water into this and keep them cool enough no matter how long we are out. Same goes for the winter months. I can put a little bit of warm tea, hot chocolate, or warm milk into the thermos and it will stay nice and warm which will in turn keep her nice and toasty. She loves to carry it around with her and it makes her feel like a big kid especially because I have my own thermos that I use daily.
This thermos grows mold?
I discovered after about a month or two of using this that it was growing mold in the straw. I thought that maybe it was because I used it with other liquids besides water so I did some investigating and found out that a lot of people have actually had issues with mold in the mouthpiece before even while just using it for water. This is probably because it is a wet area and never really gets fully dry. Unfortunately the silicone means that this is nearly impossible to get fully clean. I have even tried putting it through the dishwasher. I finally found a straw cleaner by Munchkin that can clean the straw and I have gotten into the habit of doing that daily to prevent mold growth and it has worked very well!
This stainless steel bottle leaks sometimes
One day my daughter fell asleep with this in her lap while she was sitting in the car seat. When she woke up I was disappointed to see that the bottle had leaked all over her lap. This was after about a month of daily use. I was hoping that it was a simple fluke and that maybe the cap hadn’t been screwed on the entire way but unfortunately it has happened several times since then. I’m not sure what makes it leak because some days it is completely leak-proof and others it will not seal. I have discovered that others have had this issue as well so I believe that it is definitely a manufacturing error. I am not sure however.
This may be a THERMOS FOOGOO miss.
This is definitely not my favorite product for my daughter. The only reason that I continue to use it is because it does do a phenomenal job of keeping the liquid at the temperature you want it to be. However, I like other sippy cups she owns much better. I have sippy cups for her with straws that don’t tend to have the mold problem that this one has so I am not sure why it happens with this. I definitely will not repurchase this bottle because I don’t think that it is worth it. I don’t really recommend this bottle even as much as I would like to like it!
