I can’t understand the point of infuser water bottles

So, I’ve never had an infuser water bottle. I don’t understand what the purpose of that long cylinder that you put the fruit in is .

For me, it’d make so much more sense to put the fruit in the bottle and let the infuser basket act as a sieve.

Why not just put fruit in the bottle and have a little mesh under the lid that filters water? It might get clogged you say? We can solve that by redesigning things just a little, can’t we?

That basket thing seems so limiting in the amount of fruit you can put and also the water you need to put.

Maybe it’s just cuz it looks cooler in advertisements?

P.S. I have ordered a travel mug that comes with an infuser basket that goes 1/3rd of the way, it’s meant for coffee or tea. I would for sure give infusing fruits a try by dropping them in the bottle and letting the basket act as a sieve
