A simple concept, a slick design, and putting those old canning jars to use--Cuppow may just be a quirky coffee gadget, or it may catch on big. Either way, it's pretty darned cool: Cuppow lids take advantage of a canning jar's screw-top to create a BPA free, 100% recyclable, spill-free, and rather unique way of drinking coffee, or your beverage of choice, on the go.
Canning jars are usually around $10 for a 12-pack, and are made to be heat resistant and more durable than typical glass jars as to stand up to the heat-intensive canning process. In other words, hot coffee or tea is par for the course. The Cuppow, which runs $8, is also machine washable. Accordingly, with the canning jar/Cuppow combo, one of the main worries of stainless steel travel mugs--lingering bacteria due to not being dishwasher safe--is abated. And since there are plenty of canning-style jars out there to choose from, your "mug" has endless customization possibilities (big! small! with a handle!).
Joshua Resnikoff and Aaron Panone, the two entrepreneurs behind Cuppow, launched the product only this month. Visit the Cuppow Web site for details on where to purchase.
