When it comes to water bottles that do it all, Zojirushi’s stainless-steel model is one of our favorites for both cold and hot beverages alike. We first heard about the Japanese brand’s thermos from writer Laura Perciasepe, who told us that it kept her coffee scalding hot during a wintry commute and her vodka soda ice-cold during a day at the beach. Lucy Liu is also a fan, calling the water bottle’s heat-retention capabilities “insane” and adding, “You put hot tea in it at 6 a.m. and at 6 p.m. it’s so hot, you’ll burn your tongue.” Strategist editor Alexis Swerdloff is on “Team Zojirushi,” too: “It’s truly mind-boggling how cold my water stays in this thing,” she wrote of the sleek, lightweight, and leakproof thermos. While it comes in two sizes, a 12-ounce and a 16-ounce, the larger is on sale today for just under $20 — the cheapest price we’ve ever seen it at.
