Is YETI a lifetime guarantee?
No, YETI does not offer a lifetime guarantee. However, YETI does provide a 5-year limited warranty for certain products. This warranty covers any defects in materials and workmanship that might arise under normal, non-commercial use of the product within its specified informative life, which is 5 years from the date of the original retail purchase or the specified statutory limitation period for certain jurisdictions.
Some exceptions to the 5-year limited warranty may apply for certain items, such as batteries and electric items, in which case the warranty period may be less than 5 years. Additionally, products that are used in a commercial setting are also not eligible for the 5-year limited warranty.
It is best to check with the manufacturer of the specific product that you are interested in purchasing to understand the exact coverage provided by its warranty.

Why are YETI cups recalled?
YETI cups were recently recalled due to a potential burn hazard. The recall was issued by the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) after reports of the cups igniting and melting while in use.
YETI has identified the issue as an issue with the bottom portion of the cup, specifically, the sealant between the cup and the base. This sealant has the potential to ignite when exposed to an open flame or other heat source.
In response to the recall, YETI has issued a solution: customers can contact the company to receive a free replacement with a new, sealed cup. YETI will also provide a refund for customers who have purchased one of the recalled cups.
As of now, no injuries have been reported related to this recall.
YETI is working with the CPSC to ensure that all customers are aware of the recall and that solutions are in place to prevent any potential injury.
Does putting a YETI in the dishwasher ruin it?
No, putting a YETI in the dishwasher is considered safe and is actually the most effective way to clean your product. In order to maximize the longevity of your YETI, the manufacturer recommends hand-washing using mild detergent and lukewarm water.
If you do choose to put a YETI in the dishwasher, a gentle cycle should be used, using a low heat setting. The tumblers should be placed on the top rack of the dishwasher, with the lid open. To further protect the product, manufacturers recommend removing any food particles that may have adhered to the product and avoiding the use of harsh detergents or bleaching agents.
Make sure to immediately remove the YETI from the dishwasher after the cycle is complete in order to avoid damage due to the heat. Finally, dry the product thoroughly with a soft cloth to ensure best product care.
Do YETI’s dent easily?
No, YETI products are known for being extremely tough and durable, so they do not dent easily. YETI products have high-grade stainless steel construction that is built to last and resist dents. Additionally, most YETI products have a No Sweat Design, meaning they are insulated to keep the outside of their products dry.
This helps prevent any rusting or denting that could occur over time. With proper care, YETI products should remain dent-free for many years to come.
Can you return items that you damaged?
It depends on the store’s return policy. Generally, if you damage an item and it is no longer in its original condition, you may not be able to return it. However, some stores may allow returns even if the item is damaged.
It is best to check the store’s policies before attempting to return damaged items. If the store does allow returns of damaged items, it would help to bring proof of purchase, such as an invoice, to help the staff process the return.
How do you tell if your YETI is a knock off?
To tell if your YETI is a knockoff, you should pay attention to a few key factors. First, be sure to examine the product label and materials used in the construction of your YETI cooler. Genuine YETI products use only high-quality materials and feature the company’s logo on its label.
Additionally, take a look at the overall construction of the cooler. Genuine YETI products have heavy-duty insulation and tightly sealed hinges to provide optimal temperature control. Finally, authentic YETI products also carry a limited lifetime warranty, while knockoff products do not.
Always take a look at the warranty when purchasing a YETI product as this can be a good indication of the product’s authenticity. With these tips in mind, you can easily determine whether or not your YETI is a knockoff.
Why did Lowes stop selling Yeti?
Lowe’s announced in March 2021 that they were officially discontinuing their partnership with Yeti and no longer carrying the cooler and lifestyle brand in their stores. However, there are several theories that have been put forward.
Some speculate that due to the current economic climate and pressures placed on retailers, Lowe’s may have seen the discontinuation of Yeti as a way to reach cost savings goals. Others speculate that Lowe’s may have had issues with Yeti’s product and supply chain, or that they saw more potential in other brands and product lines they may have wanted to prioritize in their stores.
Alternatively, it is also possible that Lowe’s may have had an issue with the Yeti brand itself, as the company has been facing some recent struggles with legal issues, such as trademark infringement claims brought against them by some of their competitors.
Whatever the reason for Lowe’s discontinuation of Yeti, it appears that it was a strategic business decision meant to better align with the company’s goals and focus.
Who has Yeti sued?
Yeti, a cooler and outdoor lifestyle products company, has filed lawsuits against several companies for infringement of its copyrighted products and designs.
In 2014, Yeti sued K2 Coolers for their “ Bear-Resistant Series” of coolers, claiming that its design was too similar to Yeti’s patented design. In 2017, Yeti sued Maverik Country Stores for selling knock-off versions of its insulated coffee mug.
Later that same year, Yeti sued Ozark Trail, a competitor of Yeti in the cooler market, for copying several of its designs.
Most recently, Yeti sued Homitt and Abccanopy, two companies, alleging that they infringed Yeti’s trademarks and trade dress. In its complaint, Yeti alleged that Homitt and Abccanopy were selling similar, if not identical, copies of the Yeti products and packaging and that the defendants were using Yeti’s trademarks, trade dress, and intellectual property without permission.
These cases demonstrate that Yeti takes its intellectual property seriously and takes action against companies who infringe upon its design and product rights.
Why can’t a Yeti Cup go in the dishwasher?
Yeti Cups are insulated tumblers designed to keep beverages hot or cold. Therefore, they are not recommended for use in the dishwasher. Many Yeti Cups are made using a double-wall vacuum insulation process, which traps air between two layers of stainless steel and in some cases, a third layer of copper, to keep beverages hot or cold.
If a Yeti Cup were to be placed in the dishwasher, this insulation process could be compromised and the cup would not perform as intended. Additionally, the extreme heat and high-pressure water of the dishwasher will wear away at the corrosion and rust-resistant coating the Yeti Cup is made with, causing the finish to deteriorate.
As a best practice, Yeti recommends hand-washing with warm, soapy water and avoiding any abrasive materials.
Why can’t you put carbonated drinks in a YETI?
You should not put carbonated drinks in a YETI because the vacuum insulation of a YETI is not designed to withstand the pressure of the carbonation. When carbonation is released in a confined space, it creates pressure and can cause the YETI’s seal to break, allowing air and moisture in; which can cause the contents to become warm and could cause the YETI to leak.
Additionally, when carbonated drinks are put in a YETI, foam and spillage can occur which can get on the outside of the YETI and make it difficult to clean, and could also make a mess.
What is the weakness of a YETI?
A YETI may have several weaknesses, depending on its purpose. For example, if the YETI is intended to keep food and drinks cold or hot for a long period of time, then there is the possibility that the item may not stay cold or hot for as long as desired.
Additionally, YETI coolers can be expensive and may not be cost-effective for a person who won’t use it often.
Another common issue with YETI products is that the components might be too bulky for some people to transport. For instance, many YETI coolers are very large, so if a person is looking for something more portable, they may need to look elsewhere.
YETI also has some environmental drawbacks, as they produce products that generate a lot of plastic waste. For instance, the YETI Tundra line of coolers uses a large number of plastic parts, and some of them cannot be recycled.
This means that, ultimately, these products contribute a lot to landfill waste, even though the company does offer recycling programs for some of its parts. Additionally, the energy required to manufacture the products and ship them around the world adds to the environmental footprint of YETI products.
Why were people blowing up their Yeti coolers?
People were blowing up their Yeti coolers due to a recall issued by the US Consumer Product Safety Commission in October 2020. The recall was issued because some coolers may have built up excessive internal pressure, causing the lid to suddenly detach and release hot liquids or food, resulting in burn hazards.
So, in order to prevent any injuries or accidents, people have been advised to stop using the coolers and to contact Yeti to receive a free replacement latch.
