Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We had seen this thermos in a sporting good store and found it to be cosmetically attractive and very well made. After purchasing 4 of them, we tried them on a bicycle ride, filled with hot soup. We started first by filling the canteens with boiling water to warm them up, then dumped the water and filled them with boiling soup. Each was then wrapped in a towel and loaded in a bicycle panier. The ambient temperature was about 60o. When we stopped for lunch about 3 hours later, our hot soup was barely lukewarm. We noted that the can itself was cool to the touch but the top of the lid was quite warm, leading us to believe that the problem is poor lid insulation. In conclusion, these containers are very expensive, superbly well made, cosmetically beautiful, but have a quite limited usefulness for their intended purpose. We may or may not return ours, but would never purchase another one and would discourage anyone else from buying one. I think the manufacturer needs to evaluate carefully...
This canister is a complete waste of money. If you like Klean Kanteen and thought this product would work as well as the insulated water bottles I'm sorry, they fooled you too. The outside of this product is warm or cold to the touch which tells you that the heat and cold is escaping. It doesn't keep your soup warm from breakfast to lunch. You'd do much better purchasing the 16oz Klean Kanteen wide mouth insulated water bottle. The mouth is not as wide...but at least it has temperature control.
I purchased this to use as a quasi "thermos" to keep my lunch hot/cold. Although it is not advertised as a thermos it is "insulated" which I deemed to have some heat/cold retaining qualities. The sides of the container seem to be decently insulated but the lid gets very warm when pre-heated with hot water and does not seem to be insulated very well (especially around the o-ring area.
I'm not sure what exactly the purpose is of being "insulated" if it is not to keep food very hot/cold for an extended period of time but if there is another reason this may be a great product. I do love Kleen Kanteen products and have been using a 27-ounce water bottle every day for four years. I did end up returning this product though-although I might have misunderstood the purpose of it when originally purchasing as it did not satisfy my needs for keeping my food hot.
