The Great Drinkware Debate: Is Splurging On Expensive Brands Worth it?

Ahh, that's a question that has plagued coffee and tea enthusiasts for years...

It seems like every day, there's a new player in the drinkware game, each one boasting sleek designs, cutting-edge technology, and a hefty price tag to match. But are they really worth the splurge?

Sure, some people might argue that Instagram-famous drinkware is a status symbol, a way to show off your taste and refinement to the world. Others might insist that some features are better than their competitors to justify the extra cost. 

But wherever you stand on the subject, there's no denying that we could all use to save a few bucks at the moment. 

And here's the thing: you don't have to break the bank to enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea on the go! We're here to blow the lid off this debate and explore how affordable drinkware like Greens Steel can rival the performance, looks and features of pricier counterparts.

So, let's take a closer look at the hype surrounding expensive insulated drinkware, and take a good long sip on whether they're really worth shelling out extra money for! 

the price tag myth

Let's get real, just because a product has a high price tag doesn't always mean it's better.

If you've ever felt as though you're missing out on the latest trend or the best features by not owning an expensive tumbler you saw on social media, you're not alone. That's all part of the illusion, so it might surprise you to learn that some expensive insulated cups have been known to fail in terms of durability, and even keeping your drink at the right temperature - despite their cult following sweeping the world by storm!

The truth is that many big brands mark up their prices significantly without necessarily having any better technology or features that reflect better quality. They rely on marketing tactics and influencer endorsements to create hype around their brand and make them seem like they're better than the competition. 

However, the reality is that the price tag on expensive drinkware doesn't always guarantee better quality, performance, form, function, or style. In fact, lower-priced drinkware like Greens Steel actually performs just as well and even better than pricier counterparts!

For obvious reasons, we can't mention any names here (nor are we the type to point fingers!) but shelling out more than you have to for a great on-the-go cup shouldn't be a trap anyone feels like they have to fall into!

Instead of blindly trusting the price tag, it's important to consider the actual quality and features of the product. So how do you separate fact from fiction in a sea of overpriced drinkware flooding your internet searches?

If you're tired of scrolling through a sea of overpriced big brand names, second-rate knockoffs, or tumblers with little-to-no real reviews from others who can vouch for their quality; We're here to help you end your search.

Luckily, the days of overpaying for a great cup that will deliver the ultimate sipping experience are officially behind us!

performace & function

Think you need to cough up a bunch of dough for a cup that does its job well? Don't believe the hype: We're here to change all that.

When it comes to performance and function, Greens Steel BEAST Tumbler and Coffee Cups are unmatched. Our double-walled insulation technology keeps drinks hot or cold for hours, so you can enjoy your favorite beverage at the perfect temperature. And our splash-proof lids prevent any spills or leaks, making them perfect for on-the-go use.

Compared to other popular options on the market, Greens Steel stands out in terms of durability, ease of use, and overall performance. Our products are over engineered to last, with high-quality materials that withstand even the toughest conditions.

Not all insulated cups are created equal, and the BEAST is built to last using only the highest quality Food-Grade 18/8 Stainless Steel for superior durability, corrosion resistance & luster.

While other brands on the market can chance out with lower-quality steel or even non-food grade aluminum, Greens Steel only settles for the best in the BEAST’s seamless and sturdy design.

Form & Style

Let's start with the obvious: Unless you're the completely no-frills type, aesthetics have an important place, especially with a daily accessory as often-seen as your coffee cup! But getting the right balance of beauty and practicality can be a tough nut to crack when it comes to drinkware - and many think that you can't have both without a hefty price tag.

Just like we eat with our eyes, drinks taste so much better and the sipping experience is much more enjoyable when our drinking vessel is an object of beauty - but luckily, you don't need to fork over a significant handful of cash for a cup that's a work of art!

Case in point, the Greens Steel Coffee Cup. At half the price of its leading competitors, this beautiful cup lets you feast your eyes on a visual treat of sleek lines, vibrant color, and spectacular craftsmanship. 
Drinking from it is a pleasing sensory experience, with its seamless construction and grippy textured armor coating that looks oh-so-fancy.

At Greens Steel, we believe that style and form are just as important as function. That's why we offer a range of styles and designs to suit different preferences and occasions. From sleek and modern to fun and colorful, we have something for everyone. And we're proud to say that our products are just as stylish and eye-catching as the more expensive brands out there.

Our BEAST Tumblers come in a range of colors, from classic stainless steel to bold and bright hues. And our Insulated Coffee Mugs are perfect for anyone who wants to add a touch of personality to their morning routine. So why spend a fortune on an overpriced drinkware brand when you can get the same style and form from Greens Steel for a fraction of the cost?
