Subject says it all. I bought one for DS to try it out, like it, but the instructions that came with it say to hand wash. What's the dealio? Will the dishwasher really ruin it or are they just covering their buns?

I emailed the company about this, and they said they CAN go in the dishwasher, it's just not the recommended washing method and they might not last as long.

You rule! Thanks.<br><br>
I worked for a boutique clothing store one summer, and everything in the store was labeled "hand wash." But we were instructed that if people asked, we could tell them to put it in the washer on gentle and hang to dry. The labels were just CYA in case a garment ever got damaged. I bet this is the same thing.

I have both sigg and kleen kanteen bottles and sippys for DD and we (me and DH, DD doesn't seem to care that much) have decided that we basically prefer the KK for this reason. The Sigg has such a smaller opening that it's much harder to clean, they sell some special brush and tablets to clean them but we really just want to put the sucker into the dishwasher! Also, the sport top on the sigg is much more complex and more crevices, I don't feel like it gets as clean and I'm scared to put milk or anything in it for that reason.

I have washed mine in the dishwasher since day one. On the small airplane one that we have I have noticed a slight discoloration/fading in one spot that is probably from the dishwasher. We have 6 or 7 all together and that is the only one that I have noticed anything on.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">:

From Kleen Kanteen website:<br><br><span style="color:#0000FF;">Klean Kanteens are dishwasher safe (washing caps in the dishwasher is not recommended because H2O can squeeze itself into the cap) or easy to clean with a bottle brush and mild soap. We recommend an old fashioned cleaner: white vinegar and baking soda.</span>

kk are stainless steel. they are solid with no lining, they can safely be washed, hold boiling water, etc.<br><br>
sigg are aluminum, lined with some kind of plastic coating (so your drink does not come in contact w aluminum), so i think the coating does not last as long or remain as durable when exposed to repeated hot (or cold) temps. probably not as healthy for you after a while..<br><br>
i love our kks. we recently bought a sigg out of desperation when we were traveling and lost our kk, and i wish i hadn't wasted the 20$.
