I bought this because I haven't been able to find anything like it in the stores (Walmart, Target, KMart, Bed Bath & Beyond) that I've checked. I heated up some split pea soup the first morning at 7 am, and heated water in a kettle too. I poured the water from the kettle into the thermos to warm it up, then dumped that out and added the soup. I put it into my "built" tote and went to school (nursing school). At 12 I went to eat my soup but it was still very hot! So, I ate the rest of my lunch and left it for later. I put it the lid back on and at 3:30 opened it back up for a snack and it was just right - still warm but not hot. I thoroughly recommend this! I go to school an hour away from home and can't afford to eat out. This helped me immensely to be able to bring my own food. Great product!!! And I haven't had any problems with leakage either plus I washed it in the dishwasher...

If you like to pack hot soup or stew on a cold day... this is a great product. I recommend buying more than one. The capacity is enough for a hearty stew lunch for one person. But pack a second one for a hot drink. It kept my stew piping hot for six hours sitting there in the cold vehicle while I was out snowmobiling all morning. AND It also keeps drinks ice cold. The ice cold thermal factor actually works better than the hot factor. I put ice cubes in overnight at room temperature and they were hardly melted in the morning. I really like the wide mouth, easy to clean. Although you can also wash in dishwasher rack too, although water leaks into the base just a little because of the hot water jets. (it leaks in where the black bottom is against the stainless steel.) But that isn't a problem... I just pop off the base and let it dry out. Can be snapped back on easy enough. And these units are perfect to take ANYWHERE! A great product by Thermos brand.

I bought this thermos for my 6 year old son to take to school for lunch. He doesn't always like to take sandwiches. One morning, my neighbor ran over my kids backpacks with their lunches inside. Needless to say, juice boxes, sandwiches, and everything else were completely flattened. But, my son's thermos escaped with only two small dents in the side and the bottom popped off, but didn't break. The interior of the thermos remained intact. In fact after my husband sealed the plastic bottom back on, it remained usable. If this thermos can take being run over by a mini-van, it could handle anything! I can also tell you that I boil water and put it inside the thermos before putting hot food in it. It seems to help to heat up the steel first and keeps the food hotter longer.

I really liked this product. You just need to add hot water before putting your food in it, to be able to heat up the container. It has enough room for a can of soup. It kept my food hot from 6am until 4pm.

This is a great thermos! I bought one for me and one for my boyfriend, so we can eat hot lunches that are healthy and inexpensive.

I am a poor college student, and it costs me around 7 dollars to buy a decent lunch at school. I bough this thermos in order to take hot lunches with me and it works great. I make homemade soup or stew and take it to school with me. The thermos fits nicely in my backpack over top of my books. (I rubber band a spoon around it) In between classes I can eat a healthy lunch. I don't have to wait in line at the cafeteria or cafe for an expensive meal, or eat candy/chips and soda like the other students.

**Make sure you follow the directions. If you don't put the boiling water in it to heat it up, then your lunch won't be hot. Also, make sure you screw the lid on correctly. If it is not flat when you screw it down, the seal won't form, and it may leak. Do these two things though, and your lunch will be hot!**

Works great. Keeps things hot as long as advertised. Wide mouth convenient for eating and the perfect size for a grown man's lunch. Also, this product has a super tight seal so it never leaks.

For retaining heat this works as well as any I've tried...

My application is for overnight cooking of Irish Oatmeal: Prior to bedtime: Preheat the bottle, then place 1/2 C. of steel cut oats, fill near to top with boiling water. Go to sleep. When the alarm rings, seemingly 3 milliseconds later, one has cooked oatmeal waiting! (vs. cooking for 1/2 hour when you Could Be doing something else like reviewing vacuum bottles)

This bottle's defect, in my opinion, is that the seal is integrated into what is normally the outer lid. (i.e. the cup or bowl of the vacuum bottle.) Also, the lid is easy to cross thread. The consequence is that one's hand must work at a high preload as well as high torque to unscrew it. Result: Frustration, possibly muscle strain.

I prefer a different thermos (the one with the folding spoon in its lid):

one can find these at WalMart for $15.88 in the camping section (10/25/09).

This jar is great for holding your average 16oz can of soup, ect. Food is still warm after 5 hours. One downfall is the jar opening is smaller and hard to slide food up the side of the thermos using a fork. It's smaller than my previous thermos and decided to take a bowl along to help.
