Around £14 on Amazon

Very worrying reviews on Amazon. All four had the same fault, a shattered glass lining! Not very reassuring at all.

Pay £20 and import a Zojirushi - mine keeps drinks piping hot for over 10 hours, and still more than warm for over 13 hours.

Different model but the glass on our thermos shattered too

Really? I've been looking for a good flask and they just never seem to work. Where did you get one? I've never heard of the brand.

I've always found with drinks flasks that you can't get rid of lingering tastes from inside the vessel

Zojirushi are one of the few companies that actually publish the heat loss of their flasks.
Some say quality isn't as good now they are made in Thailand rather than Japan, but still head and shoulders above what is usually availble in the UK from outdoor shops.
I got mine from a seller on Amazon - plenty of sellers and quite a few different volumes - I got the larger SJ-TE10 (1 litre) - and it does keep my coffee piping hot for over 10 hours. If lucky they might mark it as a gift to avoid import duty, though delivery could be two or three weeks.

Preheating a flask with boiling water helps with heat loss, and cleaning every so often with something like a steradent tablet overnight is often recommended.

Heat Retention* 174°F @ 6 hrs. / 129°F @ 24 hrs.
Cold Retention** 46°F @ 6 hrs.
*Rating is based on water at a starting temperature of 203°F (95°C) at a room temperature of 68°F (20°C)
**Rating is based on water at a starting temperature of 40°F (4°C) at a room temperature of 68°F (20°C)

I bought two of these flasks and they are awful. One arrived smashed! I gave it the benefit of the doubt thinking it could have been used as a rugby ball by the courier but then the replacement went within 2 weeks. Any nudge or bump and the glass smashes.

Just my opinion but not worth the hassle.

What a palaver..... We went on to stainless steel flasks because these break, and the shops couldn't give 'em away.

In the olden days when I was young and dinosaurs roamed the earth, every time we got the flask out of the picnic bag, we used to give it a little shake so that we could hear the wet tinkle of broken glass mixed with coffee. oO
