It's sturdy, still intact, but fairly rubbish at keeping things hot. I've been using it recently to take soup into work, but I have to eat it at 11.00 am break because it's tepid by 1.30 pm lunchtime. I don't think the competitors are any better, so if you must have a flask this size and shape then this is a good deal.


Rinse out with boiling water before filling with soup.

Sounds like the vacuum seal has broken. You don't need to bother with heating the flask up before use - absolute waste of time and electricity/gas. It should still be very hot without doing this. Everything I've put in mine is always burning hot after hours and I NEVER pre-heat it. I also had a top spec Japanese vacuum flask for years (they make the best ones) and it was also burning hot for years (and I never pre-heated that either). It was so hot, you would burn your mouth even if it had been there all day. Then just like you are describing suddenly nothing stayed hot in it... It was obvious the vacuum seal had failed inside - from the outside it looked the same. Yours sounds like the vacuum chamber isn't sealed anymore. Complain to Thermos as yours is faulty. They will NOT retain heat once the vacuum is lost.

Sainsbury’s normally sell these at decent prices.

I haven’t checked just letting others know they do sometimes.

Same price in sainsburys.

Had one some years ago that I tried to use to bring soup to work.
I would make the soup at 08:30 and by 12:30 it was "tepid".

I have heard warmer declarations from Theresa May.

True story dat!
Some people here just don't have a clue how to prepare foods especially food that will be stored in a flask.
Also the flask has to be prepared for the food going in it

We've used it for pasta and it was fine.

Thankyou!
Great deal. This is likely to stay hot for some time!
Surely any flask that works correctly should stay hot all day, I have a drinks flask and my coffee is still warm at 4.30pm having made it at 7.30am
Wow! Brilliant find. I've been looking into it for my twins. I was even talking about ordering them these this morning.


Glad that I saw this post. Thanks for posting.

I read good reviews from everyone who purchased Thermos. Not a NEGATIVE comment! Those who are complaining must have bought a faulty one.

How much 'food' can you actually get in this 470ml Thermos?

Not much at all - it's tiny and also it's very difficult to eat soup from it due to the narrow opening and the angle of the spoon. It's gimmicky. I've barely used mine and when I did use it for things like soup, I found it impossible to eat with the spoon.

Dont keep flask in fridge like you would with sandwiches.

Very old hot soup, beat you cannot.

Superb flask this, I’ve got 2, although I prefer my Vonchef version just because it’s slightly bigger. To ensure your meal/soup is piping hot when your ready to consume it, add about a 2 mugs full of more than boiled water (keep your finger on the switch on kettle for few seconds once it’s boiled) to the flask then replace twist cap shake and leave for a minute or so. Pour water away, replace cap, then ensure you meal/soup is piping hot and get into the flask right away, leaving NO space between the food and the cap. This will guarantee that when you open up the flask at lunchtime the steaming food will be hot and delicious
It shows £15.41 for me?

Water boils at 100C, it cannot be 'more than boiled' you are just creating steam and wasting electricity

Let me just quickly and easily explain this to you. If you continue to press the power button on a kettle after it has reached boiling point, it will go past the point of boiling as you are effectively overriding the thermostat. It will therefore become hotter than the kettle expects it to be. Simple

H2O becomes a gas at 100C. H2O cannot be liquid above this temperature (at atmospheric pressure), so whatever you end up pouring out of your kettle is always 100C or less by definition as it is still a liquid

Its true that if you boil a kettle you may only reach an average T of something like 90C and your method may indeed eek out an extra few degrees, so fair enough!

If you pour the soup into the lid/cup then it should be easier for you to eat/drink.

I would agree with this IF steam wasn’t already coming out of the kettle. If it is, then the water has already reached boiling point and won’t get any hotter regardless of how long you keep holding the button down for! You’ll just continue getting more and more steam.

I have this one and you have to put boiling water in for 5 minutes with lid on to preheat it. I do this while I warm up whatever slop I'm eating for lunch.
