I personally use a lot of water bottles, both at the gym and throughout the day. They hold a lot more liquid than a glass and are far safer if you accidentally knock them over. The Pyrex Coloring Changing Water Bottle applies the Pyrex shatterproof glass technology to the standard water bottle, and, for the most part, elevates the category.
Available in six different colors and patterns, I’m reviewing the Blur Tie Dye [sic?]. When the bottle holds cold liquid, it changes from a light background to a dark one. It’s not a dramatic effect by any means, but certainly looks interesting.
The cap is easy to screw on and off, as well as pop open with a button to take a sip. At only 17.5 ounces of capacity, however, this water bottle is definitely on the smaller side in the category.
With the cap off, the lid opening is similarly small, making it all but impossible to get a regular-sized ice cube inside the bottle. Fortunately, my fridge has crushed ice, which mostly works for this type of bottle, but it would be better if the opening could accommodate a normal ice cube.
If you don’t mind the smaller size and extra weight from the silicone-coated Pyrex, the look, feel, and function of this water bottle is definitely premium. For everyday use, you’re probably better off with a less expensive option, but for something a bit different that fits well in a dishwasher, this is a fine choice.
