Want more flavor in your water but don’t want the high sugar load of most sweetened beverages? A fruit infuser water bottle may be the solution. Chopped-up fruit is placed inside an inner basket and immersed in the water bottle, imparting its vitamins, minerals, and taste to the water. The result is a convenient, healthy, and refreshing elixir that makes meeting your daily H20 quotient easier than ever. But not all fruit infuser water bottles are created equal. Here’s your guide to the top bottles for leveling up your hydration game.
Best Bottom Infuser: Infusion Pro Premium Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
A common flaw with many infuser bottles is that the infuser basket attaches at the top and doesn’t reach all the way to the bottom, so once the water level drops below the basket, the fruit stops infusing the water. The Infusion Pro is a winner because its infuser basket attaches at the bottom of the bottle. This means that the water in your bottle will have fruit submerged in it until the last drop, giving you stronger and more lasting flavor. The inner strainer is also designed to prevent fruit bits, seeds, and ice from clogging the spout or getting swallowed. Other advantages include a neoprene insulating sleeve, a free 50-recipe ebook, and a leakproof, BPA-free design.

Easiest to Clean: Hydracy Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
A key requirement for any good fruit infuser bottle is ease of cleaning. Having to laboriously scrub seeds, pulp, and rind from hard-to-reach nooks and crannies is a dealbreaker. In contrast, all parts of the Hydracy easily come apart and are dishwasher safe (just use the top rack). This bottle also comes in lots of fun and energetic colors. It has an (almost) full-length infusion rod for a more potent flavor flavor and an insulating sleeve to keep your drink cold. If you’re not sure what to put into your infuser bottle, the free 27-recipe ebook will get you started. The side of the bottle also labels the volume for easy reference. Note: You may want to check whether the Hydracy, with its large, 32-ounce capacity, fits your vehicle’s cupholders.

Most Durable: Danum Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
The Danum Fruit Infuser Water Bottle is the most durable choice on this list. You can rest easy knowing that this bottle will survive a few tumbles. It’s also leakproof and lightweight for handy portability. Although the Danum doesn’t come with an insulating sleeve, a rubber grip on one side and a molded thumb grip on the other side provide a secure hold even with condensation (aka, “bottle sweat”). And because this bottle has a 32-ounce capacity, you won’t have to constantly refill it throughout the day, but you may want to make sure it fits in your cupholder.

Best Dishwasher-Safe Choice: Live Infinitely Infuser Water Bottle
This water bottle features a fun infinity sign and a reminder to live infinitely. As with other bottles included here, it is dishwasher safe, so you do not have to clean it by hand at the end of the day. It has an almost full-length infusion rod, allowing you to enjoy the fruity flavors all the way to the bottom of your bottle but still leaving room for enough water. It is also BPA-free and includes a recipe ebook with fun options to try. Although the O-rings that seal the lid can sometimes fail, the bottle comes with a one-year replacement warranty.

Best Bargain: AquaFrut Infuser Water Bottle
The AquaFrut boasts many of the same great design features as other bottles—such as a locking lid, convenient spout, and long infuser—but at a significantly lower price. It also comes in several fun, bright color choices. It’s made of durable, BPA-free Tritan, which is shatterproof, so you don’t need to worry about cracking it. Best of all, it uniquely comes with a bottle brush to help you easily clean your bottle and a lifetime warranty.

Innovative Hydration Tracker: Bevgo Fruit Infuser Water Bottle
The Bevgo Fruit Infuser Water Bottle has several innovative touches that set it apart. Foremost is an ice gel ball that attaches below the infuser basket to keep your water colder, longer. The basket also has a flat base, allowing you to set it on the counter when loading fruit. And the insulating sleeve sports a timeline that tracks your consumption. You’ll know at a glance if you are on track with your hydration goals for the day. The Bevgo bottle has more traditional features as well, such as dual grips for easy handling and a slim size that fits in most cupholders.
