Mixed reviews (three five star, one three star, one one star), but free returns if you get a duff one. Remember to preheat (as with all stainless steel flasks)!

can anyone confirm this story? David Beckham and Wayne Rooney stop for lunch at the England training ground and take out their
pack-up food and drink. The conversation allegedly goes:
Rooney: What's that you got there Becks?
Beckham: It's a thermos flask. Posh Spice bought it for me for my birthday
Rooney: Ooh that's good. What's it do?
Beckham:Well, it keeps hot things hot, and cold things cold
Rooney: Sound. What you got in it?
Beckham: 3 cups of tea and a choc ice!
Just thought I'd ask.

Nice one, superam!

Heat! Sigh ordered (_;)

Thought this was a mac for £5. Disappointed.

Great for men that have a bit of 'girth' and need a jimmy riddle through the night. Hey presto, this handy container saves them stepping out of bed! Just make sure it's thoroughly cleansed prior to using for its proper use!!

Long and thin
goes well in
But doesn't please the ladies.
short and thick
does the trick
and brings home all the babies.

Perfect for simple yoghurt making.

That never occurred to me! Thanks!

My pleasure! Here's a method, in case you aren't already familiar:

Just heat your milk in a pan (with a milk saver I recommend) until starting to simmer (the milk saver will start to rattle at this point).

Then put it in the thermos and let it cool until you can comfortably have your finger in there.

Then stir in a desert spoonful of Yeo Valley full fat natural yoghurt.

Seal it up and by morning you'll have half a litre of perfect yoghurt.

Top tip: freeze the rest of the Yeo Valley pot in spoonful portions. After a few repeat productions (using your last batch as a starter) your yoghurt will stop setting properly, so that's the point to start again with a spoonful of Yeo Valley from your freezer. That way one small pot of Yeo Valley will keep you in yoghurt for months, with only the addition of fresh milk.

Considerably cheaper than buying the yoghurt ready made.....
