If you don't like hand washing, Can You Put Hydroflask In Dishwasher – Are Hydroflasks Dishwasher Safe?
Product care instruction what you might found: You should not put the hydroflask bottle in the dishwasher or soak the flask in hot water: the dishwasher may become hot, affecting the insulation of the flask and discoloring the powder coating. Likewise, immersing the entire flask in hot water will discolor the powder coating.
The truth is you can free to put your hydroflask in Dishwasher – Hydroflasks are safe in Dishwasher.
Here’s why you can put hydroflask in dishwasher:
- Hydroflask keeps ice cold rely on the vacuum insulation of the bottle, but washing in dishwasher can’t affect its insulation or damage it, because the vacuum insulation producing process is over 300℃ condition in its manufacturing process, a dishwasher is lower than 70℃ usually that is no way to affect and break the insulation of hydroflask.
- All hydroflask type insulated water bottle is powder coating color on its surface, it is beautiful and durable, only would be discolored with hard scratch or corrosive chemicals, it won’t happen discolor with dishwasher based on our tons of dishwasher tests.
I purchased directly from hydroflask so it’s authentic. Great hype, terrible durability, it’s a disposable rust bucket. Forget their warranty, they won’t honor it (via a website that doesn’t accept warranty entries). Look elsewhere.
On top of all this, the plastic tops are poorly designed. The first thing to do with this is pitch the cap that comes with it and buy something else. Make it easy, buy something else to start out with.

Why your hydroflask rust?
The hydroflask water bottles are made from stainless steel, the stainless steel is a ubiquitous material with a wide variety of applications–from use in medical devices, to automotive parts, to jewelry and cooking utensils. Much of the “magic” of this metallic material is that it is stainless, in theory, it doesn’t rust. However, if you have ever owned or used a stainless steel product it is likely that you have noticed rust (corrosion) and you may have even questioned if its name is a misnomer. Why does a material touted as “stainless steel” rust?
- Stainless steel has main two types of material to make a hydroflask water bottle, SUS304 and SUS201; if you stainless steel water bottle is made by SUS201 which is poor quality and easy to get rust, also it is not food grade FDA comply; a high end quality stainless steel water bottle should be made by SUS 304 which has good rust – prevent and it is 100% food grade FDA comply.
- If you ever wash hydroflask stainless steel water bottle with steel wire brush or hit a dent on the bottle, that both can destroy the protective surface layer on the stainless steel and rust will occur.
- At a normal condition and environment, stainless steel 18-8 (SUS304) has good rust-prevention, but when it has contact with corrosive chemicals, or stay at tea/milk/coffee for a long time, it is still can get rust.
