rCup Bottle FAQs
Q : What size is rCup?
A : The 12oz reusable cup measures 340ml, and our 8oz 227ml. The 12oz has a height of 168mm, and 144ml without the lid. The 8oz has a height of 133mm, and 110mm without the lid. The diameter at the base of both is 64mm, and the diameter of the lid of both is 84mm, so they will fit snugly in your car cup holder and under most coffee machines!
Q : Do rCup cups leak?
A : rCup claim their cups are completely leak proof and we've never had a leakage yet (or had anyone tell us about a leak).
Q : Do rCup cups come with a lid?
A : Yes, each rCup reusable coffee cup has an unique 'push open push close' lid.
rCup is open when the push button is in its down position and closed when raised. As a guide, when you can see the moulded line on the inside of the lid rCup is open. You don't have to unscrew the lid to drink from the cup. Just push.
Q: How and how often do I have to clean my rCup?
A : rCup is only watertight if the seals and mechanism are kept clean. We suggest that you clean your cup after every use and can’t be held responsible for leaks if foreign objects become trapped in the seal or mechanism. Do not microwave.
Q : Are rCup cups dishwasher safe?
A : Yes you can, but top shelf only. If needed you can pop off the push button for better cleaning access. For cleaning we suggest rinsing with hot soapy water (do not leave soap in bottle to soak) but if you want a more thorough clean you can use bicarbonate soda.
Q : Is rCup BPA free?
A : Yes, each reusable cup is not only made from recycled coffee cups, but the cup itself can be fully recycled.
Q : How much of rCup is made from used cups?
Because it’s currently impossible (commercially) to make a recycled polymer food safe, only the outer layer of rCup is made from used paper cups: about 40% of the cup.
Q : Can you take the lid apart to clean it thoroughly?
The lid can most definitely be taken off to clean – we recommend the top shelf of the dishwasher if you have one.
Does rCup stain easily?
A : Most plastics can stain if you put them next to oily or greasy foods in a dishwasher (spaghetti bolognese is the classic!). If this does occur, apply a mixed teaspoon of baking soda and water, leave for 20 minutes then rinse thoroughly.
How long will my rCup keep my drink warm for?
A : In most cases your rCup will keep your drink warm for over 90 minutes - plenty of time, even for the most slow-supping coffee drinker.
Q : Am I able to order a rCup reusable cup in a colour or style not currently on your website?
A : Yes, in most cases that won't be a problem. As an official rCup stockist we are able to supply any colour or style currently in stock at the rCup warehouse. If you'd like to request a colour that is not currently online please don't hesitate to get in touch.
