Which vacuum flasks work best?

We trialled eight flasks and found some kept their temperature better than others.

Particular flask performance

Please specify which particular flask kept drinks at a temperature greater than 50 degrees for how many hours. Then we will know which flask to buy if we want a flask that will keep drinks hot for a long time

Re: Particular flask performance

Hi Ruth and Terry,

You can see the full breakdown of results in the table - namely, columns 'Stays hot at ambient 5 degrees (hours)' and 'Stays hot at ambient 22 degrees (hours). Hope this helps.

Kind regards,

Second Cup

Have been looking for a quality mid range Stainless flask with two identical cups - Had one years ago, but nothing to be seen these days - Any ideas?
