Someone needs a traditional one with a universal cork, a wide opening, a large capacity, and someone needs a light vacuum one that takes up a minimum of space in a bag or backpack.
The editors analyzed the available proposals and selected the 11 best manufacturers of thermoses, whose models are most in demand among buyers and have many positive reviews.
What to look for when choosing a thermos
- View. First of all, you should decide on the type. If you need a product for drinks, then it is better to opt for the option with a narrow neck, since less heat will come out through it. This option is not suitable for food, because it will be simply inconvenient to use a thermos.
- Volume. This characteristic affects not only the size of the product, but also the capacity. Accordingly, the smaller the volume, the smaller the thermos, but you can not pour as much into it as, for example, into a large one. Do not forget also that the volume directly affects the duration of the temperature retention: the smaller it is, the longer the contents will remain hot. When choosing, you should rely on your needs. If it is important that the thermos takes up less space, then small models should be bought, in all other cases, purchase a product of the volume that is enough for the required amount of drink or food. The main thing is that the contents take up the entire internal space and there are no voids left, otherwise the temperature will drop faster due to the presence of air.
- Duration of keeping the temperature. One of the most important characteristics, because the product is bought precisely so that the contents remain hot for as long as possible. Here you should pay attention to the reliability and type of flask. Steel keep the temperature for eight hours, and vacuum – at least six to seven. There are also models on the market in which drinks or food remain hot throughout the day. True, not everyone needs it, so you shouldn't overpay. The best option would be a thermos that retains heat from seven to ten or twelve hours.
- Quality. Inspect the product for damage and defects before purchasing. Neither inside nor outside should there be any cracks, dents, irregularities. Also evaluate the reliability of the bulb, which must be firmly fixed so as not to break at the first fall. Unscrew and screw the cover back on. Try a thermos on your hand, it should lie well in it and not weigh too much.

A hundred years have passed since the opening of a small factory in Germany, where the spouses Karl and Sofia began producing various aluminum products.

Craftsmen to this day share their experience, passing on secrets and features that made the brand's products synonymous with reliability and convenience.

The Japanese manufacturer is famous for the quality of its products, which is reflected in the name. The company follows the traditions and life philosophy of the Japanese. The brand's thermoses have long been included in the top five along with other well-known companies. Food grade stainless steel is used for manufacturing. The inside of the flask is carefully polished to prevent the formation of unpleasant odors and increase the resistance of the material to food deposits. Two technologies are used: laser welding makes thermoses more compact, allows you to create curved shapes, giving the product ergonomics; Collapsible plugs provide a better sealing of the flask, since they tightly close the throat, but at the same time are easily disassembled for cleaning, they consist of a minimum of parts, and the fewer there are, the more reliable the design.
There is vacuum insulation between the walls of the thermoses, so the temperature remains for a long time. There is also copper foil, which serves as another thermal insulation element. The polished surface of the flask blocks the heat of the contents, the vacuum does not allow air to pass through, and the foil reflects the heat radiation passed by the previous barriers, so the brand's thermoses are one of the best in keeping the contents hot or cold.
