Welcome to Powered by Mom Blog’s Review of Cuppow Products!
Cuppow transforms canning jars into travel mugs and lunchboxes!
Cuppow which is a US based company was created with the goal to develop everyday products that would help us all decrease our eco-footprint. That is how their flagship Cuppow product – the original drinking lid adapter for canning or mason jars ws created. It allows people to up-cycle an everyday item into an eco-friendly travel mug and this is the goal of all of their products. I love that their products utilize BPA and phthalate free food-grade recycled plastic and that they divert as much needless waste as possible from the landfill.
Cuppow recently added the BNTO (ben-toh) canning jar adapter so that we can all bring yummy and healthy food with us wherever we go. Since canning jars are designed to store food safely they make fantastic lunchboxes, are easy to clean, cheap, and you can microwave them! I love this insert and as you will learn there’s so many meals you can create with these!

I received a selection of jars which say they are Ball jars, drink adapters and BNTO adapters. I love them all as they now give me the option of using glass instead of plastic containers.
Let’s start with the cuppow drinking lid. It is easy to use, easy toclean and between the wide mouth and the regular size adapters I can turn any canning jar into a drink on the go. I use them for freshly made juices, smoothies and a few more things. If you want to use it for a hot beverage there are a few things to keep in mind.
The jar can be too hot to hold so I’d suggest using a drink cozy. Cuppow does have one that they call the Cuppow Freaker – Jar Insulator. It sells for $8.99 and fits any size jar and is good for hot or cold drinks. There are lots of drink cozies out there so it’s up to you what you want to do.
- I’ve also seen canning jar mugs with handles but you have to be careful to find ones that allow for hot beverages.
- I haven’t yet used any of the jars for a hot beverage but I’m going to try that next.
If you need to do measurements whether it’s for your food or drink you’re set as the jars from Cuppow have measurements on them which I find handy.
The BNTO adapters are nothing short of brilliant in my opinion. I love that for the days I have to work outside the home I can take my breakfast and lunch with me. I tend to like yogurt and granola for breakfast, sometimes put the granola in the yogurt. Usually I prefer to have my granola with almond milk so with the BNTO adapter I can have the almond milk in the cup adapter and my granola and some fruit in the jar.
I turned my jar upside down with the liquid in it and it did not leak. I don’t recommend doing this but I just had to test that.
Below you can see my meals for a day when I go to the office to work. I have my smoothie, granola and fruit with almond milk and a salad with fruit. If I wanted dressing for my salad I could use a larger jar and another BNTO adapter. No plastic tastes in my food which I love!
I also loved the idea of using the cuppow products and to have oatmeal on the go. You could have any extras you want in the oatmeal in the BNTO adapter or your milk or almond milk. The oatmeal goes in the jar and since you can microwave it you just add water and you’ve got oatmeal at the office or hotel or wherever.
There are so many things you could do with these adapters for the types of meals and snacks you cold take with you. Your meals and snacks are almost limitless!
