The Thermos Vacuum Insulated Bottle has been a staple of coffee drinkers since the early 1900’s with the company now being synonymous with keeping beverages hot or cold. The 1.2 liter vacuum insulated Thermos bottle can hold about five 8 ounce cups of coffee or other beverage.

The 40 ounce Thermos Bottle features a lid that acts as a serving cup, a sealing stopper and handy carry handle that can help strap the Thermos down. The Thermos bottle has a vacuum insulation between stainless steel to keep liquids hot or cold.

The vacuum bottle can keep hot liquids hot or cold for up to a day without losing much of the heat or cold with only about five degrees being lost in 24 hours. I tested both hot and cold beverages and saw only about five degrees change for both.

I used water that was boiling from a tea kettle that brought the water up to 200 degrees and waited 24 hours to test the temperature which only lost 5 degrees. I used cold water that was 35 degrees straight from the freezer for a few hours and tested the water the next day with only about five degrees of warming.

The vacuum bottle insulates by the vacuum inside the stainless steel walls that insulate against changes in temperature. The stainless steel ensures your beverages do not take on any flavors from the container and protects the bottle from damage.

The 1.2 liter Thermos bottle has a stainless steel and plastic cup that helps to insulate your drink while you’re using the serving cup. The cup is nice for use in the field and is handy for protecting the top of the vacuum bottle as well as keeping it with the bottle when not in use.

The serving cup screws on the top of the vacuum bottle and has a rounded lip for comfortable drinking with the insulated serving cup. The stopper has a rubber sealing ring with two side spaces for pouring without having to remove the stopper.

Pouring without the stopper is smooth and has a nice single stream of liquid but using the stopper in place and only unscrewed some means an unsteady stream. It still pours somewhat well but the stream is hitting at least some of the stopper so it does break it up a bit.

Without the stopper in the bottle the stream is nice and smooth so I have usually just removed the stopper to prevent any spills when pouring. The stopper when fully seated is air and liquid tight so the stopper does work well to keep your beverages in the vacuum bottle.

You can purchase the 40 ounce Thermos Vacuum Bottle at the Thermos website or Amazon as well as locally at Walmart for about $27. The 40 ounce Thermos Bottle is the perfect bottle to take hot or cold beverages with you whether it’s the field for camping or to work.

I highly recommend the Thermos 40 ounce vacuum bottle as the perfect vacuum bottle for more than a few drinks of your favorite beverage.
