Camelbak Hydrobak 1.Litre Hydration System
Tea strainers resemble small sieves and are used for straining tea that has been made with loose tea leaves. Tea bag tongs are small flat tongs used for squeezing and removing teabags from your cup.
Coffee filters are used when brewing coffee. Fresh coffee grounds are placed in the filter and hot water is poured on top. The filter allows the brewed coffee to seep through whilst the grounds remain in the filter. Some filters are available for individual cups of coffee, sitting in or on top of a cup.
Stencils and Shakers
Bottle openers come in variety of designs and methods and are used for removing corks from wine bottles and crown tops from beer bottles. Popular styles of corkscrew include the winged corkscrew and the waiter’s friend – these require some effort from the user to remove the cork. Lever openers, ‘just turn’ models and electric corkscrews require less effort but are generally more expensive to buy. Models like the waiter’s friend and winged corkscrew also incorporate a crown top opener into the design. A foil cutter is used for removing the foil that covers the tops of wine bottles. Again this is incorporated into some types of corkscrew.
Bottle coolers are available in a variety of designs. The most commonly used coolers are double walled buckets that can be chilled before use, or buckets that can contain ice. Other coolers include neoprene sleeves that act like wet suits and maintain the temperature of the bottle for as long as possible. These sleeves are great for outdoor dining like picnics and barbecues as they are compact, light and small to store and pack.
French Press Cafetiere
This type of cafetiere is best described as being a jug with a filter and a plunger. Coffee grounds are placed in the bottom of the jug and hot water is poured on top. The plunger and circular filter is placed on top of the coffee and after a few minutes of brewing, the plunger is pressed down slowly until the filter reaches the bottom. This process traps the loose coffee under the filter leaving you free to enjoy the freshly pressed coffee.
Due to wear and tear over time, the mesh filter of the cafetiere will occasionally need to be replaced. Replacement filters are available, either on their own, or as part of a three piece set that includes the upper and lower discs that the mesh sit between. The upper disc incorporates a spring coil around the edge which creates resistance when you are plunging the filter.
Pour Over Coffee Maker
The pour over coffee maker is an alternative way of preparing fresh coffee, the filter cup sits on the top of the round jug with the ground beans inside, pour over hot water and allow the fresh coffee to drip down. The fresh coffee can now be poured straight from this.
These jugs are designed to hold a large amount of liquid like hot water, tea or coffee. The generous size is ideal for catering for several people at functions. The jugs will be double-walled with a vacuum in between to keep hot contents warm and cold contents cool.
These glasses, some with handles, are mostly used for espressos and coffees. The double walled space keeps the coffee hotter for longer whilst keeping the outside cool to the touch. Double walled glasses are very stylish too and look great as part of your daily coffee ritual.
Champagne glasses range from saucers to flutes and are a top attraction at any celebration. Champagne saucers are wide, shallow and curved glasses sat on the top of long tall stems, they always look great for serving to guests. Champagne saucers can be stacked to create a fountain, from the top Champagne is poured until it flows all the way down to the bottom until all the glasses are filled. A star attraction. Other Champagne glasses include flutes which are long tall and thin.
Shot glasses are just as they sound, a small cylindrical glass just about big enough for one shot. These shots are mainly associated with tequila and vodka. Shot glasses can also be used for creating chilled recipes like alcoholic jello shots or an appetiser called amuse bouche and can be a great way of serving a chilled dessert as they can be styled and served in a culinary fashion.
An electric grinder is used for grinding fresh coffee beans into a fine powder for use in a coffee filter, cafetiere or a machine. An electric grinder will use a stainless steel blade that will spin at a precise RPM to finely grid the beans into aromatic freshly ground coffee. A viewing window will allow you to determine how course or fine you want your coffee.
A manual coffee grinder is similar and sometimes referred to as a mill. The manual turn handle to grind the coffee is normally on the top, the beans will be poured in and the grinding mechanism will be operated by the handle. This allows the grade and size of ground coffee to be more controlled. The manual grinder will have a drawer or collection tray at the base called a hopper.
An Infuser is a small perforated object used for loose tea, the infuser is filled with the tea and submerged into hot water to infuse the tea flavour into the water. The design of the infuser can be a round ball, egg shaped or a novelty design such as an animal or a fish.
A water infuser is used for flavouring water with fresh fruit. A removable chamber can be filled with fruit which will infuse the water giving you naturally flavoured fruit water.
A handheld frother is used for thickening and frothing milk, it can also be used for frothing hot chocolate and coffee. The handheld frother is motorised and spins the mini frother on the end very fast to whip up the milk for the top of hot drinks or for a smooth hot chocolate.
A frothing jug is perfect for using to froth your milk in due to its wide pouring spout. This makes it easier to pour as the milk will be thick and you will have more control over this. Some frothing jugs come with their own frother as part of the lid. As the plunger is pushed manually, the attached whisk at the bottom will spin to create the froth.
The stove top kettle is used for boiling water on a hob. Traditionally this is how water was boiled for tea, coffee and even for washing before the days of the electric kettle. The kettle is filled with fresh water and placed on the stove. When the water is boiled the kettle will whistle through a steam vent or flap to indicate this. These kettles are suitable for all hobs but some may exclude induction due to the material it is made from, always check manufacturer’s recommendations.
Storage pots for tea, coffee and sugar come in a range of styles and material to fit in with the theme of your kitchen. The storage jars should have a secure and sealed lid to keep moisture out.
A teapot is used for brewing tea, either using tea bags or loose tea (you’ll need a tea strainer to catch the loose leaves when pouring). Teapots are generally sized by the amount of cups it can make – ranging from one cup up to 1cups. Larger teapots used for catering and events will be sized in litres.
A tea press is similar to a coffee cafetiere in that the tea, either bags or leaves, are put inside a central filter and left to steep. The plunger is pressed to push the tea to the bottom of the filter, locking the tea away and allowing the tea to be poured. These tea presses are more commonly used for tea leaves or herbs but tea bags can also be used in the press.
A travel mug is used for carrying coffee or tea to drink on the go. These mugs are generally tall and are insulated or double walled to keep your drinks warm. The travel mug will have some form of drinking spout and many have some form of stopper to prevent spillages. Care should be taken as although travel mugs might be spill-proof they may still leak hot liquids if not kept upright.
A travel press is a cafetiere that you can use on the go. The tall insulated mug in addition to the leak proof lid and drinking spout also contains a plunger for steeping a pressing of your fresh coffee and tea. The fresh pressed drink can then be consumed straight from the mug.
A mug cafetiere is a large insulated mug with a filter and a plunger. This allows the use of fresh coffee or tea to be added to the bottom of the mug. After the water has been added and allowed time to steep, the plunger with the filter on is then pressed down and the coffee grounds or tea leaves are pressed to the bottom of the mug. The plunger itself embeds into the handle so that it is no longer visible or in the way when drinking.
Some drinkware items are designed to be stacked together, but do so with care not to scratch off any patterned or coloured areas. Delicate items like china and glass should be handled carefully and not stored with other heavy or sharp items that could damage or break them. Bulkier items should be stored separately and not stacked where they could damage other smaller delicate items.

While many hip flasks share similar features, there are several kinds available for purchase. Before you make a decision about which is the right design for you, you should consider what type you are looking for and what you may use it for. It is even possible to engrave most types of flask if you are planning on giving it as a gift for a special occasion.
Liquor should only be left inside a canteen for a maximum of three days as after that time, it will not taste at its best due to changes in temperature and exposure to the air. Alcohol may also cause rusting and damage to a flask if it is allowed to remain inside for more than a couple of days. Flasks should be regularly cleaned, however the narrow opening can make this challenging, and a bottle brush is a good idea to scrub the inside effectively.
You should never use soap when cleaning the inside of your flask as a residue may be left behind, and you should never put it into the dishwasher unless it states clearly that it is dishwasher safe. Lemon juice, vinegar and baking soda are three products that work well to clean inside your hip flask, however you should take care to rinse it out completely and leave it upside down so that it all of the liquid will drain out and it will dry completely. If you only put one type of alcohol into your flask and you are the only person who has drank from it, you can simply use hot water to clean it effectively.
Calabash Yerba Mate Gourd
Made from the dried and hollowed ends of a squash, calabash are the quintessential mate vessel. They have been used for hundreds of years as the traditional mate container in South America by the natives and are intertwined with the history of yerba mate itself. Natural, beautiful, and an amazing medium for art, nothing says yerba mate like drinking from one of these.
Curing your Mate Gourd
By absorbing the hot water during the curing process, microscopic holes in the organic material are closed by the expansion process in the walls of the gourd. This will also help to prevent cracking that can render your gourd useless.
Rinse out your new gourd with fresh cold water.
Add properly heated mate water (160–180°F) to your gourd — top it off to the brim.
Add fresh yerba, then add properly heated water, and let it sit for another 1hours.
If you decided for a sweet modern vidrio mate gourd — again, superb choice — you get to skip the curing process and caring for your vidrio gourd is a breeze: empty the lavado (washed or with little flavor) yerba mate and then rinse! Super simple.
Shed Some Light on the Problem
Sunlight is the opposite of cool, dark, and damp — the preferred adjectives of mold everywhere. Leaving your gourds to dry in the sunlight (making sure to get the entire inside of the gourd exposed) is an effective and natural way to disinfect your gourd.
Choosing a Cut of Yerba Mate
Drunk mainly in Uruguay and Brazil, this cut is famous for its connection with the legendary Gauchos (cowboys), who roamed the Pampas of South America. The Gauchos drunk yerba mate for its health benefits and energizing effect during their long, hard days. It also helped them to curb their appetites during long horseback rides without food.
How to brew Yerba Mate with a Tea Infuser
The Hydro Flask 24-Ounce Standard Mouth is a leakproof, easy-to-open bottle designed to keep your drink cool. It does so by sandwiching an insulating vacuum layer between two layers of stainless steel to prevent outside heat from warming up the interior. Unlike most of the other insulated bottles, the coating and rubber lid make it easy to grip during opening. The mouth is wide enough to make plopping ice cubes into the opening easy, but not so wide as to spill water on yourself while guzzling on a hot day. It’s a pleasure to drink from, as it allows water to flow smoothly into your mouth with no gurgling to interrupt the stream.
The dual-purpose Platypus Meta Bottle can be converted into a cup or collapsed when space is limited. This squishable, leakproof bottle offers a drinking experience that’s as close to that of a hard-sided bottle as we’ve been able to find in a collapsible vessel. Once it’s empty, you can roll it up and stash it away. Its wide mouth and shallow design make it the easiest bottle we tested to use an UV water purifier for when you travel to places where the water isn’t potable.
How we picked and tested
Bottles become a traveling billboard of values; for those without a car, it becomes a venue for bumper stickers—a new arena to express personal identity.
Dr. Martha Kaplan, Professor of Anthropology at Vassar College, writes in “Lonely Drinking Fountains and Comforting Coolers: Paradoxes of Water Value and Ironies of Water Use” that water bottles are a reflection of health and the self. By carrying around a water bottle instead of, say, a soda bottle, you’re signaling to others that you care about your body and are on-top-of-it enough to bring a reusable bottle with you and fill it up ahead of time unlike the less responsible folk who have to buy beverages along the way. Bottles become a traveling billboard of values; for those without a car, like city dwellers and college students, it becomes a venue for bumper stickers—a new arena to express personal identity. That is one reason why we review different kinds of bottles—to help find the one that best fits your needs, personality, and style for different circumstances.
First of all thanks for reading my article to the end! I hope you find my reviews listed here useful and that it allows you to make a proper comparison of what is best to fit your needs and budget. Don’t be afraid to try more than one product if your first pick doesn’t do the trick.
Most important, have fun and choose your flask wisely! Good luck!
