I really like these straws. The set comes with two straws, two keyrings and two cleaning tools. Each straw and tool are stored in their own small hard plastic case. The straws are neatly folded up accordion style in the cases along with the cleaning tool. The case has a keyring slot so it can be attached to keys, a purse, or a backpack. I pack one in my daughter’s lunchbox for her to use when she is eating away from home.
The straw is very quick and easy to use. As I remove the straw from the case, the straw automatically fits together and it's ready to go.
It can be a bit tricky to get the straw and tool folded back in the case properly especially for younger kids like my daughter, but after trying it a few times, we found the way that was easiest for us. The straw does not add any chemical or funny taste to drinks. I have tried using stainless steel straws but my daughter hates them. She says that they are really cold on her lips while drinking from them. She really likes using these straws because the entire inside of the straw is silicone and just the outer shell is stainless steel. The straw is easy to clean with the included cleaning tool. It can be hand-washed and it is dishwasher-safe. This set is a great value and using these straws are better for the planet than using disposable plastic straws.
