It's a shame what's happened to the Stanley company since they've outsourced their production to China. My father swore by their products for decades, being a factory worker who had his Stanley thermos for 20 years taking coffee to work. Sad that this is no longer the case.
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...
This bottle is just OK. In comparison, I have a Thermos Stainless King 24-Ounce Food Jar which I bought in March 2014 for about the same price as this Stanley jar. The Thermos keeps my lunch much hotter after about 5 hours. I even tried to pre-heat the Stanley with boiling water, but it just keeps my food warm; it makes me a little concerned about food safety because of this. The Stanley has a bigger cup, which is kind of nice, but the overall size is bulkier, too, which is less nice. Since the price is about the same, I recommend the Thermos.
I wanted something I could put a full can of the 18.8 ounce can of Campbell's chunky soup into. It's better the fuller you get a thermos, eliminating any empty spots if possible so it will stay hot longer. This thermos is reported to be 18 ounces yet it will hold the 18.8 ounce can of Campbell's chunky soup with enough room to easily get the lid on. I work at night. I usually fill it up around 4:30pm after heating it with boiling water. I generally do not open the thermos until around midnight and I would say that the soup is easily still over 100 degrees which is extremely adequate for my needs. I was very pleased to see that it exceeded my expectations. I love the spoon holder on the side. Comes in real handy and also the little compartment on top is pretty novel. I really can't see anything I would use it for but I guess it could be used for something. It doesn't hurt anything. I highly recomend this thermos for anyone who is a habitual lunch carrier as I am. I was so happy to have...
