Great big flask down to £8 . Stays hot for up to 24 hours. Also the 1 litre one for £6.50 if that suits you better.

Actually seems a good price Normally its own brand flasks at this price, rather than thermos. I quite like using mine. I know what you mean though - seems like a much less common thing to use now. Tend to use it for outdoorsy days out, where I'll be knackered before driving home and anticipate no cafe nearby.
The stays "hot" is a bit of a misnomer, needs tempering first, & essentially not drinking from to achieve a decent hot rating anything close to 24 hours, (I think I own this model actually)

I have this capacity it's glass inner & a decent thick "closed cell" polystyrene which I picked up when clearing up a festival & "recycling" tents etc for my local cub group. (this wasn't needed).

I use it to fill a kettle & a bit for my daily cuppa(s) so it is reboiled about half way down & a few hours in so I save energy & waiting for the kettle beyond a few seconds to hit to boiling point again.
Bulky as a travel thermos flask, but not as a kitchen top energy saver, ..good find & good price OP, mine has been going strong for at least 6 years used EVERY day! ...no sign of failure yet. though i'd not like to risk a glass one for knocks & drops anyday!
these are brliliiant flasks we have had ours for a few years now and I paid £12 for it then from asdas They do indeed stay hot for 24 hours unlike some other brands and styles,when any left overs emptied next morning its always hot still..It has a little pot in the lid for sugar and the 2 cups are large.We use ours a lot for picnicsor when out bird watching,pot of filter coffee made first thing in the morning beats cafe coffee and cheaper.

I use vacuum flasks a lot. Used em for work for years and now use them when out on my push bikes & motorcycles and often have one in my back pack when hiking with my dog. I have various size ones from 350ml to 1L. This 1.8L is too big for my uses, plus its glass, i've broke so many glass ones, i only use stainless steel ones now.
These are good - but I dropped mine and smashed the glass inside to smithereens

You don't even have to drop them to break them, glass thermos are that fragile you only have to knock them against something to shatter the glass insert.
They're a waste of money, stainless steel are the way to go.

For a glass flask thermos are the best for heat retention at this price point but yes like all glass flasks the break very easily. If transporting put it in its own bag that has a bit of padding .
