As I loved the size and apparent sturdiness, I tried another. When I bought it, the bottom piece was smooth and shiny. (I checked carefully.) Then in just a couple weeks the same thing happened, hairline cracks and no heat retention. The "cracks" appear to be thin vertical cuts, pretty uniform in depth and spacing. To me it looks like instead of working with precision parts, they ram on the bottom cap with pre-cut notches to make it fit (sort of), then cover over the thin cuts. I'm about to send the second one back (as I saved the receipt), but given the other reviewer's experience with the highly touted "lifetime warranty," I'm not optimistic.
Too bad a once reliable brand has gone cheap. Do not buy.
To start, for those that don't know, I need to explain how a thermos works. Basically, it's two containers. There's the outer container that you see, then the inner container that holds the liquid. The space in between the two containers is an empty vacuum. The reason for this is that you can't transfer heat in a vacuum, so this is what keeps the liquid cold/hot. If that vacuum seal is broken, then the thermos ceases to work. It's just another big "cup" at that point with no insulating value at all.
This said, I've been bitten by Stanley FIVE TIMES so far:
1.) The first time I purchased one of the large green "vacuum bottles" (the 2 quart size). It worked for almost a week before it lost its vacuum seal and quit working.
2.) Thinking the first must be a fluke, I purchased a second one. This one managed to make it 3 weeks before losing its seal.
3.) I figured maybe there was something wrong with the manufacturing of the green containers, so bought a stainless steel one. It worked for two uses, and the seal broke.
4.) Finally, now out over $100 in merchandise, I contacted the Stanley company. They sent me a replacement 2 quart thermos, but it was the green one again. This one made it two weeks, then lost the seal.
5.) Never one to learn my lesson, I figured perhaps there was a problem with the 2 quart size, so gave up on it, and purchased a smaller 1.1 quart. This one worked for almost two months, but then lost its seal.Read more ›
I thought ALL classic Stanley Thermos' were lined with charcoal to enhance their legendary thermal prowess.
Sadly this is not the case with these bottles. These bottles are NOT lined with charcoal, they are built like any run of the mill double walled thermos.
To my disappointment they perform like any run of the mill thermos, in some cases worse. To make matters worse, they sound like a cheap stainless steel sink. At best I was able to keep food hot for 4-5 hours in a primed bottle. As a test I put the same food in my 0.5 quart Stanley, that has the lining, and the food was hot after 8 hours.
Dear Stanley, it is not worth the minor cost savings to reach a predetermined price point by alienating a previously loyal customer with run of the mill pedestrian fair.
The dogs with the kids help decided the lids were good to eat. I went to Stanley/PMI's website and ordered lid parts, several months ago. I was just told by PMI's customer service that the parts were no longer made. Stanley has been my go to thermous for decades. Their catch phrase is "Built for LIfe". I now have two usless 30 dollar food jars.
Dear PMI, you are driving away Stanley's customers. Yet another death of a great company.

This one does exactly what you'd expect. I tested and hot water at 7 am was still hot at 5:00 pm. The two issues are 1) it's not dishwasher safe. Read morePublished 23 months ago by Tron
