Frequently Asked Questions

Which glass water bottle is the best choice for me?

Borosil has always been known for its high quality glass products. Borosil glass bottles are made from the highest quality borosilicate glass, which make it microwave safe, dishwasher safe and freezer proof. Borosilicate glass bottles are stronger than ordinary soda lime glass bottles, and do not chip as easily. The glass bottles are scratch proof and stay ultra clear even after years of usage, making them great value for money. There is a reason Borosil is one of India’s most loved brands, and our glass bottles, the most trusted!

Which glass bottle do you recommend for office meetings?

We recommend any of our glass bottles along with Vision Glasses for office meetings. They come in different sizes and are scratch resistant, so they always look crystal clear.

All our borosilicate glass bottles and glass tumblers are microwavable, and can be sterilized to ensure utmost hygiene.

Can the glass bottles be used to carry hot green tea or any other hot liquids?

Borosilicate glass is made to withstand extreme temperatures, so it will not crack even if you pour boiling hot water in it. You can also use the Neo Glass Bottles or the Crysto Bottles with handles to carry your tea around.

Are glass bottles safe to drink from?

Yes, glass bottles are extremely safe to drink from. Borosilicate glass is known for its non reactive nature, and all laboratories use borosilicate glass to store their chemicals and acids, as it is one of the only materials that does not react or leach chemicals into its contents. Also, borosilicate glass is extreme temperature resistant, so you can pour boiling hot liquids into the glass bottle without worrying that it will crack (unlike a regular glass bottle which will crack if hot water is poured into it).

All our bottles are made of the same quality borosilicate glass that we use in our laboratory range, so you can be assured that is the safest possible bottle for you!

Are glass bottles better than plastic?

Glass bottles are definitely better than plastic! In fact, The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, UK published a paper that recommended pregnant women “reduce use of foods/beverages in cans/plastic containers, including their use for food storage” in order to minimize chemical exposure to the fetus / unborn baby. 

If you are not comfortable using glass, you can view our range of Stainless Steel Bottles, which might be more suited for school water bottles, or as bottles on the go

How much do glass bottles cost? Are glass bottles more expensive than plastic?

Glass bottles are definitely more expensive than plastic, but are not expensive if you consider their health benefits and the fact that they can be reused endlessly. Plastic bottles scratch easily and start looking old extremely quickly. Additionally, research has shown that plastics leach harmful chemicals, especially when exposed to heat (in the sun, if hot liquids are stored in them).
