Default Yeti, RTIC, Etc. Cups in the Dishwasher

Has anyone broken down and said F it and just stuck their cups in the dishwasher? Back when the only ones out were Yetis and they cost an arm and a leg so I only had one I didn't mind hand washing it. Now I have more Stainless tumblers than normal cups in my house and don't feel like handwashing a dozen of them. I've heard of people putting them in the dishwasher with no ill effects but wanted to see if anyone here had tried it?

Gotta admit, I've never understood that, something that is designed to take heat of coffee and other hot or cold drinks can't take a little hot water from a dishwasher? Just like the pots and pans that say non-dishwasher safe......really??? i can boil water in a pan but it's to delicate for a dishwasher?

From what I understand the initial cups that came out said not to put them in the dishwasher. Now I think they only say not to put the lids in the dishwasher.

I retract my previous statement........ This is straight from their website.

Our durable 18/8 stainless steel tumblers are built to resist dents and dings. No Sweat™ Design keeps hands dry, and protected from hot and cold drinks. Plus, the Rambler 30 oz comes with a MagSlider™ Lid and both are dishwasher safe.

I put them all in the dishwasher but make sure they are on the top rack just because of some of the earlier warnings.

Seems those were unfounded now.

I haven’t but I’m about to start. That’s all I use anymore and I’m tired of hand washing them.

My dishwasher (wife) washes all ours in the sink.

Mostly because we don't own a regular dishwasher,

2 RTICs and one Yeti into our dishwasher, one RTIC started to rust. Other two haven’t been an issue.

The major issue with a dishwasher is not the hot water but the chemicals. It can mess with the metallurgy and eats away at some plastics and rubbers. Same reason you aren’t supposed to put kitchen knives (and all kinds of other stuff) in the dishwasher.

The only thing that might be affected by the heat drying would be the rubber gasket on the lid.

I still hand wash the Yeti cups around my house. Mostly because I have a set of Calphalon pots and pans that I can assure you are not dishwasher safe after having an old roommate test their warning.

If powder coated, the dishwasher can get hot enough to melt the powder and cause flaking.

We have been and I noticed my yeti cup was turning my hot coffee to iced coffee last week while I left it in the truck while I hunted. Used to be it would still at least be warm when I got back and drank some.

I think it lost it's nitrogen purge. Or vacuum or whatever magic smoke leaves when they loose their mojo.

Falling less in love with RTIC. New 30 oz. cup in dishwasher and faded after 1 time. Hand washing from now on. Ordered a cooler at Thanksgiving and was told it shipped the next day. After multiple calls, emails, not 1 single Customer Service Rep could tell me why thetracking info showed it was still at their facility with absolutely no movement. Finally and magically appeared at my door yesterday. Terrible customer service!
