Food on the Go - Thermos Food Flasks Review

Transporting food in rucksacks can be difficult, with the risk of leaking containers, or foods/liquids not retaining their temperature are common problems.

If we go out for a hike or day out, food is always high on the agenda!!

Transporting food in rucksacks can be difficult, with the risk of leaking containers, or foods/liquids not retaining their temperature are common problems.

The Thermos brand is one of the leading manufacturers of insulated products they have been doing it for over 100 years! They sent us over a couple of food flasks to try out on our adventures and put the test. Here’s how we got on with them…


First up, the Stainless King Food Flask

Thermos Stainless King Food Flash

Here are the key features of the Thermos Stainless King Food Flask:

  • Thermos vacuum insulation technology for maximum temperature retention hot or cold. This works by creating an airless space between two walls which eliminates temperature change.
  • Keeps hot for 7 hours and cold for 9 hours
  • Durable stainless steel interior and exterior with insulated stainless steel lid that acts as a serving bowl
  • Cool to touch with hot liquids, sweat-proof with cold
  • Extra wide mouth and folding stainless steel spoon.

We’ve been using this food flask for a couple of months giving it a thorough test.

perfect for fitting in a rucksack or school lunch bag

It’s been camping, up hills, on picnics and to school and work. And we’ve been very impressed with this high-quality product that does what it says it will do!

The compact size was perfect for fitting in a rucksack or school lunch bag.

It was very easy to use no fiddly lid and no leaking experienced.

The wide mouth makes it easy to fill, eat straight from and clean.

The spoon that comes with is full size and of good quality.

The kids love the way the spoon folded up – very cool I was told!

So most importantly does it retain its temperature? Yes, it does!

The kids have been taking soup, spaghetti to school and by lunch time it is still hot. I have been using it for work with hot tea, and it does keep liquid hot for hours.

GOWTK Thumbs Up AwardThis flask is probably more expensive than I would usually pay, but it is well worth paying a little more for a great product.

It gets the GOWTK Thumbs Up award.

Second up, the Thermos FUNtainer Food Flask

FUNtainer

Key features of the FUNTainer

  • Thermos vacuum insulation technology for maximum temperature retention
  • Keeps hot for 7 hours and cold for 9 hours
  • Extra wide mouth – easy to fill, eat from and clean

The Thermos FUNtainer food flask is designed with kids in mind.  There is a range of funky child appealing designs to choose. We opted for the blue design to keep all little people happy!

It’s a perfect size for fitting in a lunch box. The kids had no problem using the flask and fitting the lids.

In fact, since we have had the flasks their meals they take to school have become a lot more varied and healthy 🙂 Reports back from the kids that at lunch time their food is still hot and yummy!
