Bottom line

The Pura Kiki Infant Bottle is among the priciest on the market, but reviewers say the investment pays off in durability and versatility. The stainless-steel bottle is virtually indestructible, and it can grow with kids by becoming a sippy cup or snack container. It's also compatible with several brands of nipples. However, some users say the bottle might not be the most comfortable to hold without an optional silicone sleeve that further boosts its price point.

Ease of use

Leaks a possibility. The Pura Kiki Infant Bottle is easy to clean and dishwasher-safe, reviewers say. Experts praise the wide-neck, smooth-edge stainless steel for resisting milk residue and soap film. There are four easy-to-assemble pieces including a travel cap.

Although the bottle didn't leak in expert testing, several parents say they couldn't get a tight enough seal between the stainless-steel cap and nipple to keep the bottle from leaking when tipped or thrown by older babies and toddlers. Some reviewers also find the raised internal measurements hard to read, particularly in low light. The bottle is slightly contoured, but experts say it can be a bit uncomfortable to hold because it can be very warm or cold to the touch. For that reason they recommend Pura Kiki's optional silicone bottle sleeve, but note that it can be very difficult to remove.

Durability

Built for the long haul. The Pura Kiki Infant Bottle's claim to fame is its anti-bacterial stainless-steel construction; there's no plastic anywhere. Experts say it's hard to beat this bottle for durability, and the high-grade stainless steel is covered by a lifetime warranty. Although the bottle resists dents, corrosion and most other wear, the paint on Pura Kiki's later versions of painted stainless steel bottles is prone to chipping. Parents can choose from four nipple speeds to accommodate babies as they get bigger and their feeding needs change.

Lifestyle features

Compatible with different nipples, spouts. Pura Kiki Infant Bottle's claim to fame is its anti-bacterial stainless-steel construction -- there is no plastic anywhere. Experts say it's hard to beat these bottles for durability -- the high-grade stainless steel is covered by a lifetime warranty. It's very hard to dent and resists corrosion or most any other wear. However, Pura Kiki sells both natural and painted stainless steel bottles, and some parents say the paint on the latter is prone to chipping. Parents can choose from four nipple speeds to accommodate babies as they get bigger and their feeding needs change.

A Pura Kiki sip spout (Est. $5 for three) converts the bottle into a sippy cup for use well into the toddler years, and a sealing disk(Est. $5.50 for three) turns the bottle into a snack or beverage holder for older kids and adults. The bottle comes in 5- and 11-ounce sizes and six colors. It's free of BPA, phthalates, lead and PVC, and Pura says it won't leach heavy metals.
