Some might say that thermoses are outdated or are only appropriate for outdoorsy folk who like to take wild treks into the wilderness. Of course neither statement is true, and you might be surprised how many people use thermoses on a daily basis for the most essential reasons. It’s true, however, that most people’s notion of a thermos is probably outdated. There have been many adjustments and improvements to thermoses that make them on of the most useful food packaging products you could ever buy and use. We’ve listed the top five thermoses you can find this year, and we’re pretty sure you’ll be impressed—if not excited to buy one for yourself.
With a capacity of 25oz, this bottle is the perfect flask for sharing. You’ll have plenty for an all day affair or enough to share at a picnic. This Primus bottle can keep your drinks hot for up to 8 hours. The packaging comes with two different stoppers. The first one is designed to retain the most heat, while the other one is designed for convenience in pouring. You can interchange these as needed. It comes with a cup, a characteristic that most thermoses are known for. The bright silicone outer layer protects the thermos from damage and adds a little style as well.
About 10oz smaller than the Primus, this Stanley bottle can probably accommodate for at least two people. That makes sense considering that the bottle actually has two integrated cups instead of the standard one (or even zero). The look of the bottle is very classic, and the insulation design is classic as well. This Stanley has a double wall and an outer stainless steel layer. It can keep your drinks either hot or cold—your preference—for over 15 hours. That’s an impressive amount of time and something that some people might actually need to have. It’s leak-proof and highly durable. If you wish, you can purchase this thermos in a bigger size.
The sleek black stainless steel exterior of this Thermos bottle gives off quite the modern feel. It can hold enough of your drinks to share with a 16oz capacity, and it holds well when pouring. The stainless steel double wall is designed to keep your hot drink hot for 8 hours and your cold drinks cold for up to 14 hours. It has a different twist-to-open cap design, which seems to prevent leakage better than pop-up button caps. The interior of the caps, however, is made of plastic; so if you don’t care for it properly, some separation might happen in the future.
The focus of Klean Kanteen is performance, and the company claims that this bottle can keep hot drinks hot for up to 10 hours and cold drink just as cold for up to 30 hours. While those numbers may decrease depending on the situation, the performance of the Klean Kanteen is still not bad. The best part about this bottle is its weight. It’s lighter than many of the other bottles out there, and it can also handle a little bit of rough tumbles. So if you were to carry this bottle everywhere all day, you won’t be thinking about it too much. The entire thing is very easy to clean and also comes with an integrated cup for drinking.
Yeti is a famous brand for durability and performance, and this thermos bottle is no exception. You can drop this bottle or bang it on everything, and you can guarantee that it’ll remain intact, and your drinks will remain sealed as well. It can hold an impressive amount of 18oz of liquid, and it’s also very easy to hold because of its design. This Yeti bottle will keep your drinks either hot or cold for up to 7 hours. And although it may be a little on the heavier side, you’ll never have to worry about any leakage or any sweating. You can just throw this into your bag or backpack and not have to worry about it spilling liquid everywhere. It may not have a cup for drinking, but that can easily be remedied. This is definitely another great thermos for sharing.
