WHAT'S THE BEST WAY TO CONTACT YOU?
CAN I BUY REPLACEMENT PARTS FOR MY TAKEYA PRODUCTS?
Some replacement parts and accessories are available on our website. If you don't see what you are looking for, reach out to our customer service team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CAN I PUT MY TAKEYA BOTTLE IN THE DISHWASHER?
We do not recommend washing your stainless steel bottles in the dishwasher as doing so may cause discoloration of powder coat finish.
Instead, we recommend that you hand wash your bottle with a non-abrasive dish soap. For a deep cleaning, we suggest cleaning the Lid O-Rings with a 50/50 solution of water and vinegar. Do not use cleansers with harsh chemicals like bleach or chlorine as they can ruin your bottle. Occasionally, remove the silicone o-rings in your bottle cap and clean those as well.
However, all of our lids are top shelf dishwasher safe and we encourage you to wash them that way especially if you drink something other than water to keep them mold and germ free.
WHAT ARE SOME DOS AND DON'TS TO PAY ATTENTION TO?
Do not use in microwave or freezer.
Do not use on stove for cooking.
Allow hot liquids to cool to a drinkable temperature prior to sealing lid.
Do not overfill product.
Hot liquids can scald you. Keep out of reach of children when filled with hot liquids.
HOW DO I INSTALL O-RINGS?
CAN I PUT CARBONATED BEVERAGES IN MY BOTTLE?
Yes, you can put carbonated beverages in your double-wall stainless steel bottles. However, we urge you to use carefully as carbonated beverages in an airtight container may cause a build-up of pressure which could cause your bottle to leak or the liquid to splash out unexpectedly when you open your bottle. Use with caution.
I LOST THE O-RINGS IN MY TAKEYA BOTTLE THAT MAKE IT LEAKPROOF. CAN I PURCHASE NEW ONES?
Yes, you can find replacement o-rings and other parts in the Bottle Accessories page of our website.
BEVERAGE MAKER AND PITCHER QUESTIONS
HOW MUCH LOOSE-LEAF TEA SHOULD I USE IN THE FLASH CHILL ICED TEA MAKER?
We recommend using approximately 4-6 tablespoons of tea with our 1quart Flash Chill Iced Tea Maker and approximately 8-10 tablespoons of tea with our 2 quart Flash Chill Iced Tea Maker. Note: These are suggested measurements and depend on the brand/type of tea and your personal preference of tea strength/flavor.
CAN I USE TEA BAGS IN THE FLASH CHILL ICED TEA MAKER?
Yes. You can use either loose-leaf tea or tea bags. We recommend approximately 4-6 tea bags with our 1 Quart Flash Chill Iced Tea Maker and 8-10 tea bags with our two quart.
Note: These are suggested measurements and depend on the brand/type of tea and your personal preference of tea strength/flavor.
IS IT NORMAL TO HAVE A LITTLE SEDIMENT IN MY COLD BREW COFFEE?
Since cold brew coffee is created by allowing coffee grounds and water to steep for an extended period of time, some sediment in your cold brew coffee is completely normal. However, to cut down on the amount of sediment transfer, ensure that you are using coarsely ground coffee. Coffee that is ground too finely can result in a brew with higher than normal levels of sediment. If you prefer, you can strain your final brew through a paper filter to remove any excess sediment.
ARE ALL OF YOUR PITCHERS AND DRINKMAKERS BPA FREE?
All Takeya products and accessories are BPA-free. Our pitchers and drinkmakers are made from high-quality, BPA-free Tritan™, which can withstand boiling hot and ice cold temperatures.
WHERE ARE YOUR PITCHERS AND DRINKMAKERS MANUFACTURED?
All of our pitchers and drinkmakers are proudly made in the USA.
HOW DO I CARE FOR MY TAKEYA PITCHER/DRINKMAKER?
Glad you asked! Here are a few important guidelines:
Cold Brew Coffee Maker/Iced Tea Maker/Airtight Pitcher/Flavor Infusion:
Dishwasher safe, hand wash to extend longevity
Infusers/Filters: Tap upside down in trash bin or garbage disposal to remove contents and rinse. Hand wash or soak with mild soap is recommended, but all of our infusers and filters are top rack dishwasher safe.
