Most of the time, this blog is dedicated to recipes, tutorials, and giveaways that feature items that help you cook, preserve, and keep your kitchen eco-system running smoothly. I focus on local foods, clean cookware, and useful things made from glass, metal, fabric, and wood.
However, once in a great while, something comes along that so thoroughly tickles my fancy that I decide it’s worth writing about, even if it happens to be made of plastic. This new insulated tumbler from Aladdin, made to look like a vintage mason jar, is just such an item.
I confess, I was totally taken by this tumbler from the very first moment I saw it and immediately contacted Aladdin, to see if they might want to do a giveaway. They were game and sent over four, one for me to use and live with, and three for me to share with my readers.
Having used this BPA-free tumbler for more than a month now, I’m still really enjoying it and the sheer novelty of having a faux jar. I often use it for iced tea and cold glasses of water and do appreciate the insulation (it keeps drinks colder and means that I don’t have to be vigilant about coaster usage).
I realize that this tumbler might not be for all my readers. I know that lots of you are working hard to remove every speck of plastic from your homes and so this item just doesn’t fit into your life. I respect and honor your choices, just as I hope you all will honor the fact that I get some joy from this tumbler and so simply wanted to share it.
If you find yourself equally enchanted by this tumbler and end up getting one yourself (giveaway or not), the nice folks at Aladdin would love to see your pictures of it in action! You can either share them on Pinterest or Facebook.
Now, to the giveaway! I have three of these tumblers to give away (thus, there will be three winners). Here’s how to enter:
