Zing Anything Stainless Steel
Food-grade safe 18/8 stainless steel won't rust, oxidize, or leave an aftertaste. Doesn't leach toxins and is ultra-durable and long-lasting, as well as dishwasher-safe.
The Daily Grind
The stainless steel water bottle's bottom-mounted grinder retains the pulp of your ingredients, but allows the pure extracted flavors to travel through a stainless steel screen and infuse the liquid of your choice. Whether you are Zinging with fruit, vegetables, spices, herbs or other tasty ingredients, the Zinger is designed to allow you the ability to custom tailor your beverage flavors.
Through the Salad Zinger, flavoring your own oil and vinegars are only a few of the convenient and delicious options of the Zing Anything philosophy encourages. You can use your Zinged oils for dipping, dressing, sautéing, or as added flavor to plain pastas or rice. Or, combine the oil and vinegar, and zing in some ingredients to create absolutely delicious salad dressings.
Press For Success
The Citrus Zinger offers an easy way to extract the juice and flavors of lemons, limes or clementines, and infuse them directly into your water bottle. Take the Citrus Zinger on-the-go to the gym, yoga or to the office to indulge in a Zing creation.
Infusing fruits, vegetables, herbs, etc. in water has its roots in Spanish cuisine, and is commonly referred to as aguas frescas. The flavor is light and fresh, but not quite as heavy as a juice, and not as plain as water, either. A single fruit flavor, or complimentary fruit flavors can be refreshing, but if you want to be more adventurous with your flavors, try adding in an herb as mint. There are no rules against sweetening your water with sugar, honey, or agave nectar, if you so desire.
Likewise, when using the Salad Zinger to make dressings, flavored oils, vinegars and syrups, you may choose from a wide variety of options, brands, and types of base liquids to infuse. Begin with light, mild oil like safflower or canola, or try olive oil and grape seed oil, which work well too.
Let your imagination be your guide! Enjoy!
Reusable bottles divert hundreds, if not thousands, of single-use containers from the waste stream, but what you put in the bottle counts just as much in creating healthy lives and planets.
Before the project began, it became clear that the Zing Anything teams saw eye-to-eye and shared some core values. Aside from Zing Anything's own beliefs and intuitions about the market, the research showed that people were making healthier choices and moving away from high fructose corn syrup and artificially flavored or colored drink. But even flavored or "intelligent" waters contain additives and sugars that are not as smart as they claim to be. The CZ and AZ let the user decide exactly what does into their drink and inspires creative new combinations of flavors.
At the same time, people are also becoming more aware of how the products they use everyday are made and how their choices affect the planet. Not satisfied with attaching a "green" label to products as some sort of feature, Studio Murmur understands that the standards for making a great product are inherently responsible, safe and beautiful. Using quality materials and simple mechanisms, the Zing Anything Products deliver.
Frequently Asked Questions
How many drinks will you get from one grind with the Aqua Zinger?
About two. Maybe more, depending on infusion times and ingredient choices. Allow the second drink/infusion to steep longer than the first. Also, firm shaking is key to advancing the infusion process. So shake well after you do a grind and before you take a sip. Note: longer infusion times will help increase flavor results. Especially when Zinging with harder, less juicy ingredients. Making drinks at night help for a tasting drink in the morning, and then let the second fill-up steep throughout the day for a tasty drink in the afternoon. Two fill-ups per day will earn you 2/3rds of your daily water intake needs.
How do you create a more "instant" infusion with the Aqua Zinger?
Do a double or triple grind. After you twist on the bottom cup, slowly twist it partially back off and then back on a couple of times. Then, add water shy of the top, replace the cap and shake aggressively. Allow 15-20 minutes for steeping and shake again. The harder the fruits (less juicy) the longer the steeping time will need to be.
How do you clean the Aqua Zinger?
For a quick ingredient change and clean, simply unscrew the bottom from the empty bottle, and then flick the "spent" ingredients from the cup and top blade set into the trash. Rinse the top grinder and bottom cup, and it will be ready for the next zing. Note: it is also recommended to do a thorough cleaning (top-rack dishwasher) on the Zinger when needed.
How many drinks will you get from one press with the Citrus Zinger?
About two. Try to leave a little bit of the first fill-up remaining add more water, and shake well. A trick to obtain two "equal" fill-ups in terms of flavor is to do a partial press of the lemon on the first press, drink down the beverage and then unscrew and press the lemon again for the second drink. This can get slightly messy - so experiment based on preference for this process.
Should you leave the lemon in or out of the vessel after a press?
It is your choice. The lemon will add additional flavor, however, if the lemon is left in too long, the drink may begin to take on a sour/bitter taste. Add more water to help even out this sour zing.
Can you add ice to the Citrus Zinger?
Yes. Simply remove the citrus press, and add ice via the bottom opening. Then add back the citrus press.
How long should it take to steep ingredients into vodka?
When infusing vodka, try allowing your creation to steep 1 to 3 hours at minimum before drinking, but longer times can increase the flavor. Zing Anything's recommendation is to experiment with your zinger to develop your own personal preference for steeping times vs. ingredient types. For optimal flavor, when Zinging with vodka or other spirits, allow 3-48 hours of steeping. Also, volumes are greatly dependent on steeping times. If you are simply infusing raspberries into 4-5 oz of Vodka for the purposes of shots or a couple cocktails, then a fairly quick infusion time can ensue. If you are trying to infuse 15 oz. of vodka, then a longer steeping time will be required. Lastly, shaking is key in all scenarios after you grind ingredients and before you serve.
Can you use the Vodka Zinger for other spirits?
Yes. Try Zinging peaches into pinot grigio. Or lemon-grass and ginger tequila.
How long should I let my dressings rest and steep after mixing?
If you are using punchy ingredients, such as garlic, ginger, or onion, then the infusion can be pretty quick (i.e. 10-20 minutes). If you are using lighter ingredients like pear or pepper, allow 20-60 minutes for steeping, or longer as preferred.
Where should I store my Salad Zinger?
Salad Zings are best consumed the same day. However if you are doing longer infusions, then store the mixture in the fridge. Do not, oil will congeal, so you will need to set the mixture out to come back to room temperature. Then shake well.
Can I use the Salad Zinger for other mixtures?
Yes. Be creative. You can use it for real blueberry syrup, infused oils, infused vinegars...
Are the Zingers dishwasher safe?
Yes. However, a top-rack dishwasher is recommended, and hand-washing is preferred to maintain longevity of the product.

How It Works:

This easy motion allows for flavors, nutrients and aromas to be released in the Aqua, Vodka, or Salad Zinger.
Once the ingredients are pulverized, leave them in the bottom cup to create a stronger, more intense flavor. Stronger Zings taste best after marinating for a few hours, while subtler flavors are obtained in only a few minutes. And because the mesh barrier lets water in, but keeps the flavor pulp safely in place, there's no need to worry about seeds or rinds infiltrating your drink.
