This is a thermos bottle. Its construction is two stainless steel walls with a vacuum between them. This construction is similar to the old glass Thermos bottles with steel replacing the glass. The thermal conductivity of glass is lower than steel so the glass thermos keeps the temperature better, however glass is breakable. I recall a few occasion when I used Thermos as a youngster finding the content to be full of glass shards. Not a problem we'll ever see with a stainless steel bottle!
To answer the question how well HomeFlav thermos keeps the temperature I filled it with hot water, and measured the temperature several times over 12 hours with a temperature probe.
★ start ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 176 degrees
★ 2 h 35 mins later ~~~~ 151 degrees
★ 12 hours later ~~~~~~~ 108 degrees
For comparison another stainless steel thermos
★ 6 hours later ~~~~ 150 degrees
★ 18 hours later ~~~ 108 degrees
Even though HomeFlav thermos did not hold the temperature as my other thermos but it does provide reasonable insulation.
The bottle holds 16 oz of water. The diameter of the bottle an is 8.5" at the base. The bottle is 9.5" tall (from the base to the top of the cap). This bottle fits into the bottle holder of my car.
The instructions say that this bottle is dishwasher safe.
This insulated bottle is provided by HomeFlav. It keeps the temperature of the water okay but not great and its cap is well designed.
Ali Julia review
I also like that it can be put in the dishwasher for cleaning, although I do use the top shelf because of the rubber sealing parts on the top of the flask. I might not have to but better safe than sorry.
It definitely keeps my coffee hot, although I drink my coffee before the 4-6 hour time limit the manufacturer notes for keeping liquids hot.
I have used it for cold drinks too. I like that, once you screw off the top lid of the flask, ice cubes will fit through the opening. It keeps the drinks cold and the ice doesn't melt very quickly at all.
The latch on the top (that prevents leaking) took a few moments to figure out. And all directions on the flask are in what I assume is Chinese. Part of the latch flips down and then I was able to press the red button to flip open the top to be able to drink.
There is also a handy flip-out loop on the very top of the flask so that it can be hooked to a belt or a backpack.
All in all, this is the niftiest flask of its kind that I've found.
NOTE: I received this product in exchange for my honest review.
I actually didn't believe it was insulated - it felt like just metal to me - I filled it with very hot water. I was very surprised after a few minutes that there was no feel of heat in the area around the sides. I did notice it was warm at the top, so there was a heat loss there, but not a major one.
There is a double mechanism to hold the top closed, a clip and a push button which ensures this won't come undone accidentally. Once you open the lid, it has two holes, an air and a pour hole. The liquid comes out into the area where you drink it. This permits you to allow it to cool slightly or sip it as it comes out.
It is a nice concept, but I noticed a couple of issues in implementation. The first involved the carry clip on the top. Mine arrived in the box broken. A piece of the hinge was missing. It made me worry about the sturdiness of the other clip, the one that held it closed.
The second involved the fact that I found drinking out of it awkward with the placement of the button and with the top folded back,
especially with the broken holding clip.
This really needs to be hand washed in order to ensure that all of the areas are fully cleaned because of the construction.
I have given this three stars - it is OK, because of these small issues.
