Best Stanley Quencher dupe

Whether you're pregnant or a parent chasing toddlers, tweens or teens - hydration is a lifeline. Between endless tasks we're faced with daily, getting those essential eight cups of water a day can feel like a distant dream.

So, if like me, you're left desperately trying to rehydrate before bed while you look like the guy who drinks out of the wrong cup at the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade - you might want to consider getting your hands on a quencher.

Enter: the Stanley Quencher - a saviour designed for on-the-go moments, promising to endure the chaos of daily life with its spill-proof technology all the while keeping you hydrated.

However, with convenience comes a hefty price tag - £45 to be exact - leading our savvy Mumsnet users to seek Stanley Quencher alternatives. And there's no better time than the present. Especially since it's Black Friday!

I got this one from Amazon in March when I was heavily pregnant as all I wanted was ice cold drinks and it's still going strong! Still really cold 7/8 hours after putting cold water or squash in.

Our verdict

The price point of the Stanley Quencher has been a stumbling block for many. In the pursuit of affordable hydration allies, the Amazon alternative - available at a discounted rate for Black Friday - has emerged as a promising contender.

Offering similar spill-proof technology and designed for life on the go, this dupe has garnered attention for its resemblance to the beloved Stanley Quencher. The Somerway find boasts features akin to the Quencher: a spill-proof design, durability, and the convenience needed for the bustling life of a parent. With a considerably lower price point at less than £20 this Black Friday, it stands as an attractive option for those seeking a reliable companion for their hydration needs without stretching the budget - or even as a great Christmas present for a loved one!

When is Black Friday 2023?

Black Friday 2023 officially launches today on 24 November, but lots of top brands have announced early sales and savings including John Lewis, Amazon, Oodie, Ninja and Shark. It's well worth keeping an eye out for bargains throughout the whole month as it's likely more retailers will cut prices on popular products before the main event. The MNHQ deal hunters will be beavering away to source savings on products that we know Mumsnetters love and recommend.
