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.

Thermos is often the word used when referring to those vacuum flasks used to keep hot beverages hot and cold drinks cold. Thermos has been a popular brand in the vacuum flask products since 1904 and has been leading the field in keeping hot things hot and cold things cold.

Thermos has a wide range of containers for beverages and food in the single serving size and larger that center on vacuum insulation to keep things hot or cold. Thermos is also well known for its plaid lunch boxes and containers that go back to the 1950’s and 1960’s.

Today Thermos has continued to keep up with the times as well as continuing to bring cold and hot to the appropriate beverage and food. The Thermos Vacuum Insulated Drink Bottle comes in black, blue and cranberry red for the 24 ounce size.

The 24 ounce Drink Bottle has a locking lid that can be opened with a single hand by flipping the small locking ring down and pushing the button. The lid has a large rubber lid that seals the vent and drinking hole closed and tight from leaking.

The lid screws on and has another large sealing ring that ensures the lid seals tight to the all steel vacuum bottle from the inside. The brand Thermos is well known for the stainless steel vacuum bottles that have a vacuum space between the inner and outer walls that insulate the drink bottle.

The Thermos Vacuum Insulated Drink Bottle is advertised as being able to keep cold beverages cold for 24 hours and hot drinks hot for 18 hours. I tested this out for cold and hot and found it easily keeps hot and cold for that time and was very impressed with both.

The cold keeps cold beverages nice and cold for a day or more without using ice packs or anything else other than the vacuum insulation. The thermos vacuum insulated drink bottle also keeps hot beverages hot for at least 18 hours or more.

I was very impressed with the Thermos Vacuum Insulated Drink Bottle when I made tea and the next day it was still piping hot with steam coming off the cup when I poured. The Thermos Vacuum insulated Drink Bottle easily keeps hot liquids hot enough for a good length of time whether you’re out and about or at home.

The Thermos 24 ounce drink bottle has a smooth lip so drinking is comfortable while the easy to flip closed lid keeps your drink hot or cold. I really like the size and the insulation ability to keep my drink at the temperature I want for hours on end.

The stainless steel metal body inside and out means a tough and durable drink bottle that will take years of abuse without problems. The metal body makes it a highly reliable drink bottle for job sites but its good looks make it nice enough for an office.

The Thermos Vacuum Insulated 24 oz Matte Black Drink Bottle costs about $25 and is available at Thermos and other online sites as well as locally. I did find the Thermos 24 ounce drink bottle locally at Bed Bath & Beyond so you can save yourself shipping costs.

I highly recommend the Thermos Vacuum Insulated 24 oz Matte Black Drink Bottle as an excellent hot or cold beverage bottle that is tough.
