GSI Outdoors Glacier Stainless 18oz Cup

Its kind of hard to do a review on something as simple as this GSI stainless steel cup, but I think that I have enough to go on to write a fairly decent review.

I’ve been using this stainless steel cup for about two weeks now, and it’s really been put through the paces. So far, here’s a list of everything that I can remember using it for:

  • Morning Coffee
  • Various juices & milk
  • Mixed drinks after work (This has a story with it)
  • Chicken Noodle Soup
  • Snack bowl (Goldfish, Cheese-Its, peanuts and so on)
  • Water boiler (for testing purposes)

While the only limitation is that you probably wouldn’t want to put it in the microwave, you could, on the other hand, use it over a fire if needed to melt snow into water, for example. I know… pretty extreme.

I really like the cup actually because it’s easy to clean after use, and you can fit it over a 1 litre bottle of water, or put two tuna/chicken 5oz cans in it (or one pack of Lipton’s soup in a cup and one 5oz can of chicken for extra meat :D).

The handle is chrome plated, and mine did have a small issue of the chrome flaking off in one small 1cm spot.

I tested the cup by boiling some water on the stove in it. The cup held up well, but did show a little bit of discoloration around the bottom, which was expected. The water came to a boil, and I found that I had to use a hot mit to remove the cup from the stove. I added the dry Lipton’s chicken noodle soup, covered the cup with a small plate and waited 10 minutes.

The soup came out surprisingly good. The noodles were soft and the freeze dried chicken bits were pretty tasty too.

I plan on getting one for each member of the family within the next week or two so that when we’re out camping, everyone has one to use.

$11.99 + free shipping (orders over $35)
