Well, after trying several thermos type containers for my son to carry his lunch in, this one actually is the only one that worked. I had an off brand metal one, more kid sized, but he complained the food was cold, not just room temp, but cold... So, I bought a better one, a Thermos brand metal one... same thing, food not warm...said wasnt cold, but still yucky... We do mostly pasta in his, so it couldnt keep it warm enough for him to eat and he usually doesn't mind things room temperature lol... so it had to be cold for him to complain... I then remembered my father carrying a funky colored green thermos around when we were kids and I never remember anything being cold from that thing...always blazing hot...So, figured I would give it a try. Before I sent it to school with my son I got it out and did some comparison testing with the other 2 that he complained about...mainly because I didnt want him not to eat again because the food was cold and it was the weekend, so I had some...
Yep, bought one of these and within a year of purchase it wasn't working. One morning when I put hot food in it I could feel the warmth increasing in the side of the bottle. I ignored that thinking heat couldn't move that fast trough a vacuum. I was right, there was no longer a vacuum. At lunch I was searching for a microwave.
In fact, the story is worse than that. I could accept maybe one in four vacuum bottles going bad in 5 years but a company should aim for, at the very least I would say, a 1% failure rate within 5 years for bottles like this. I bought 4 Stanley bottles, a 24 oz like this, a 0.5 quart food bottle, a 0.5 quart classic thermos for coffee and another 24 oz food bottle when the first failed so quickly. All failed within 5 years. All except the classic thermos failed within one.
What does this mean? I now have to assume that their success rate is much less, maybe 1%, for a product that performs well at for at least 5 years. All this changed...
This thing is solid. Works great, just as advertised. I bought it for my daughter's lunchbox. I cooked some soup and poured it in super hot. Four hours later she said it was still hot, even had to wait until it cooled a bit before she could eat it. It does not leak, and you can tell just by the feel of it in your hands how solid it is and so very well made. This is much better quality than any other thermos, in my opinion. Buy it, you won't be sorry! This is my honest review; no one paid me to. Worth every penny.
