Have you been curious how the popular Yeti brand insulated tumbler compares to the much less expensive brand Ozark Trail? Both can be filled with 30 ounces of liquid, are made with stainless steel, are BPA Free, and can keep drinks HOT or COLD for hours! They happen to look extremely similar as well.
I was wondering how long they could keep ice for and how they compared in performance to each other, so the following are the results of my very casual and unscientific Yeti Vs. Ozark Tumbler Challenge! I started by filling each cup with 15 ice cubes, set them in my kitchen with the lids on, and started the clock.
4 Hour Results- There was no noticeable difference or any results to give.
8 Hour Results- I was able to pour about the same amount of liquid out of both cups, just under 1/4 cup each. Both still had lots of ice.
24 Hour Results- Ice seemed to be melting the same, and water levels were pretty much the same at 3/4 cup each.
31 Hour Results- Water was still cold! Also, the ice in the Yeti tumbler completely melted, while the Ozark had a teeny tiny bit of ice left.
The less expensive Ozark Trails Tumbler was declared the winner of my very casual unscientific Yeti Vs. Ozark Trails Tumbler challenge! Actually they both seemed pretty similar in performance and are both fantastic tumblers.
Living in extremely hot weather in AZ, it’s a wonderful thing to fill up either one of these cups, do errands in the car, and still have an ice cold drink to enjoy . That is ah-mazing in the summer! And, at just under $10, this Ozark Trail Tumbler is a great value… especially since it does the same job as Yeti in my opinion.
Ozark Trail Tumblers can be found at Walmart.com, and in-store near the camping section. At that price we can afford to buy the whole family a cup! 😊
What is your favorite cup, water bottle, or tumbler to keep your drinks cold?
