Which Thermos Flask is Best?

The Thermos brand team have taken their classic designs and given them a makeover for the 21st century consumer. You can now get Thermos flask 1L or Thermos flask 2L with a modern twist and designs that have had an update while still retaining their original concept of an insulated flask for drink or food storage.

The modern Thermos product line includes thermos funtainer flasks that are specifically designed for kids in addition to flasks that are reminiscent of Thermos flasks from years past. Thermos consistently rates among the best flasks and their range includes both food thermos flasks and drinks flasks as well as commuter travel mugs and hydration bottles. It’s true that the “best” Thermos flask is in the eye of the beholder, but all of their flasks do a brilliant job of keeping the contents hot (or cold, your choice) and Thermos is a brand you have grown up with and you know you can trust, so it’s just a question of choosing the style that suits you best.

What Do Thermos Flasks Do?

Today’s thermos flask works in much the same way as the original vacuum flasks that were invented all the way back in 1892 by Sir James Dewar. A vacuum flask consists of two flasks joined at the neck, the space between the two is a near vacuum (devoid of air) and this reduces heat transfer. This basically means that the vacuum is a great insulator: cold stuff stays cold and hot stuff stays hot!

What Are Thermos Flasks?

Thermos flasks are one of the most well-known brands of vacuum flask; Thermos having been around as a company since 1904. There is even a V & A thermos flask (that is the Victoria & Albert Museum in London) from the 1950s. The flasks were originally invented for drinks, but later came to include the thermos food jar to keep food hot and eventually they also began selling a
thermos travel mug which is a great coffee thermos for commuters.
