We enjoy trying new kitchen gadgets.  Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

Pura Kiki are plastic free baby bottles available in 5-ounce and 11-ounce bottles The bottles are stainless steel with a stainless lid and silicone nipple and bottle cover. A silicone bottle sleeve is also available for both sizes. The bottle sleeve helps to insulate both hot and cold beverages, stops the bottle from “sweating” on hot days, and offers tactile stimulation from the raised bump design.

Both the bottles and silicone sleeves are available in appealing colors: bottles – silver, aqua, green, purple and pink; sleeves – blue, purple, pink and orange. The bottles retail for $15.99 (11 ounce) and $13.99 (5 ounce), sleeves are $8.99 (tall) and $6.99 (short). Both bottles can transform into an early sippy cup by using Sip Spouts (2 for $4.99). Pura Kiki comes with silicone nipples which can be purchased in slow, medium and fast flow styles (2 for $4.99). Both the nipples and sip spouts are made from medical grade silicone. The manufacturer recommends replacing silicone nipples every 6 to 8 weeks due to wear and tear.

For parents looking for an alternative to plastic bottles, this is a unique product. Though glass bottles are available, they become difficult to use when the baby is old enough to handles bottles on his own. Stainless is shatterproof. The Pura Kiki bottles are compatible with nipples from many leading baby bottle manufacturers such as Avent, Born Free, Dr. Brown, NUK, MAM, Pigeon and Upis.

Pura Kiki bottles cannot be heated in the microwave, though heating any baby bottle in the microwave is not recommended as it can create hot spots in the liquid. They can be heated in an electric bottle warmer or a pot filled with warm water. The bottles, sleeves, lids, nipples, sip spouts and bottle covers are all dishwasher safe.
