Tumbler, what a catchy, fun word, right? The quirky term dates all the way back to the 17th century. The word was used to describe a specific type of cup –metal made with a round bottom. Whenever these cups were set on a table, they would start “tumbling” so the person would have to start drinking fast to prevent spilling. Smart thinking, right?
In modern times, a tumbler is a drinking glass that has straight sides and no handle or stem. We usually refer to tumblers when we talk about plastic or metal glasses utilized to drink beverages such as iced tea, juices, water, and the sacred elixir: coffee.
While having tumbler glasses seem like a great idea, getting a good one is surprisingly tricky. You want to get something functional, but at the same time eye-catching. At Personalized by Kate we carry an extensive list of options for you to choose from –metal or plastic- and you can customize your selection with a personal touch.
In general, tumblers offer excellent spill resistance, ease of opening, durability, and ease of maintenance and washing. A stainless steel tumbler with a lid, is anyone’s perfect travel companion, as they serve excellently as coffee mugs. Our tumblers have a great insulation capacity; therefore your coffee will always remain hot, and your juice or water will keep fresh for long periods. A few other factors to consider:
- The width of the base: A stainless steel tumbler with a broader base is more difficult to tip over accidentally. In fact, it is an ideal choice if you want to avoid unnecessary spills while the tumbler is being handled by a young kid.
- Secure cap or lid: Our tumblers have high-quality covers, that prevent spillage accidents.
- Cleaning. At Personalized by Kate’s, we value your time and know you do not want to spend a great deal of time cleaning and scrubbing your glasses. These are super easy to clean!
