The water bottle with a built-in fruit press

All kinds of things have been invented. A dimple maker for cheeks (1936). A meow machine to scare mice (1963). The world had to wait much longer for three brothers to come up with the PressaBottle. The concept is simple and good.

One of them wouldn't have managed on their own. No, it took three Canadian brothers with sharp observational skills and business acumen to give the world the PressaBottle. What's particularly nice is that they tell their story with a hint of self-deprecation.

«We weren't enrolled in the rocket science program, but it didn't take long for us to realize fruit naturally doesn't want to release juice into our water bottle.»

Studying rocket science wasn't really required to develop the concept: a bottle with a built-in fruit press to add fruit flavour to the water. Water is good. Water with flavour is better. While their fellow students immersed their fruit in infuser or detox bottles, the Hambly brothers took things a step further: why not squeeze it in? Why not get the most out of both the fruit flavour and the idea's potential? That's where it all came from.

Here it is: the magical bottle in its individual parts (fruit not included in delivery).

They like to call it «pressed water»

A rotatable rod with a thread, a strainer insert and a bottle. That's all you need for the «twist n’ press» concept. As these water visionaries have recognised the sign of the times, there's a coloured silicon-covered version made of glass, which is also suitable for hot drinks, and a version made of BPA-free tritan for hydrating on the go. Tritan is flavour-neutral, food-safe, heat-resistant, shatterproof and dishwasher safe up to 80 degrees. And its social media campaign is also in full flow, with the PressaBottle associated with a certain lifestyle and considered #morethananinfuser. Water is not just ordinary water anymore. They like to call it «pressed water». I like to call it «cleverly marketed», but that's part of it.

In with the magic wand.

I tried out the PressaBottle and – surprise surprise! – it works. Although you need the strainer insert; otherwise it's not sealed. It's important to know that the PressaBottle was really only designed for the single purpose of getting the maximum from your fruit. The strainer insert isn't so fine that it filters all the water through and keeps all the fruit at bay, but the press definitely squeezes flavour in. A few lemon wedges and some berries were enough, as you need to leave room for the rod in the centre of the strainer.

The result isn't the most ridiculous solution on a hot day. Plenty of water, enriched with some vitamins, fruit sugars and a hint of citrus freshness – that's not only good for influencers when temperatures hit 30 degrees. While my colleague Patrik is still a FLSK fan and filling his wobbly belly (in German) with ice-cold water, I've made the switch.

What's your opinion on the PressaBottle?

Even though it's a simple concept, I can enjoy it. I'm curious to see whether the PressaBottle will build on its successful start or go the same way as the «dimple maker». It certainly seems a lot more sensible and much more positively marketed than the dimple machine from 1936. Looking at an image from the era makes for a sourer expression than putting lemon in the PressaBottle ever could.

How it looks when you apply pressure: slush in the strainer, colour and flavour in the water.

Luck is fleeting, so I keep moving. On my bike, on the ball (size and colour are unimportant) and with everything stemming from two kids’ imagination. I love to give into play and give coincidences a chance. After all, if the journey is the reward, we should make it a nice one.

Zudem ist es perfekt wenn man Zitrone und Pfefferminz im Wasser haben will.

"When fruit is put through the juicer or commercially processed All the good stuff is left behind." Denke nicht, dass die Methode vom Pressa Bottle als kommerzielle Verarbeitung bezeichnet werden kann.

Ja, also die Ballaststoffe sind sicher nicht im Wasser drin. Es wird noch weniger verwertet, als wenn du die Früchte in die Saftmaschine gibst.

Dem kann ich nur zustimmen. Die Pressa Bottle ist echt top! Die Reinigung ist manchmal nicht ganz einfach, aber mit der Spülmaschine geht das ganz gut.
