This is my second grunwerg pod capsule flask and while it works fine, the seal sleeve ring (a little plastic sleeve which fits into the top of the flask, to help the lid seal to the flask) is not very tight fitting, so it actually falls out when you take the lid off. The one i purchased a couple of years ago fits tightly, so hopefully the unit that i received was a ‘one-off’ poor quality unit, otherwise, they need to make some changes to this product.
Quite a bit smaller than i thought but that may have been my fault. It holds about one cup of tea. Careful to not fill it to much otherwise it might pour out when you put the lid on (speaking from experience)it kept my tea lovely and hot for several hours. Sadly after only a months use though, the red paint on the lid has pretty much come off.
I have both 200 and 300ml versions of it, and love both. It keeps things warm as long as thermos, is stylish, lightweight, easy to grip and handle, and the size is just perfect to carry even in small bags.
- Small enough to be compact but big enough to store milk for 5-6 cups of tea
- This flask is FANTASTIC. It does state that it is for drinks
- Good flask, does the job
This is my tenth purchase of these lovely little drinkpods. First two were bought for my husband and i. I was so thrilled with that first purchase i went on to purchase one for my daughter and it’s just gone on from there. It carries just the right amount of hot chocolate/coffee/tea whatever your preference of hot beverage, my son has fresh sliced ginger tea in his. It keeps it hot and leakproof.
Fits in my small rucksack easily when going out. It holds about 1 mug of coffee which is adequate until you find a cafe. I use it at night too as i often wake up and find it good to not have to get out of bed to make a drink. Very happy with it and good value.
I normally take loose leaf tea that i buy imported specially and it is a fuss to make at work. So i brew it at home and then pour it into the flask. It keeps it warm and nice until i pour my cuppa at work.
Small flask, keeps warm for 6 hours, nice colour, sturdy design – but no cup so careful drinkingfor those with tassimo machines, this fits below the nozzle so no need for making into jug and transferring :)edit – the longest i have left drink in here for is now 9 hours, still warm.
I’ve had to buy another one (again from amazon) only because this was defective. The replacement which is exactly the same as this – just a different colour – is great and i have left a review for that one. Amazon were great with refunding me on this item as it wasn’t as expected.
Fits one mug of drink perfectly. People complaining that it leaks i believe are over-filling it. If you follow instructions and do not fill above the ridges inside it does not leak at all. Keeps drinks very hot for hours.
I bought this to keep milk cold for making coffee when out and about, and have found it really handy. Keeps enough milk for three mugs cold all day. I’ve washed it in the dishwasher top shelf without any problems, but would advise making sure the silicon washer on the top and the grey washer insert in the mouth of the flask are removed and washed separately on the cutlery shelf so that no milk residue can hide anywhere, and make sure they are properly replaced before using.
I’ve had it for about 8 months. I’ve used it about 10 times. It doesn’t hold much though – about 1 medium cup of coffee – and so i wish i had bought a larger one. It gets dishwashered and still looks brand new. My only niggle is the rubber seals, which although they don’t allow it to leak, liquid (coffee in my case) does get under them and therefore they need taking off for it to be properly cleaned. I don’t think this should be the case.
The size is perfect for using to take hot water for my baby’s bottles – fits handily in the change bag and carries enough hot water to top up 2 bottles (i take half the bottle with cooled water and then just top up with hot to make it the right ‘warm’ temperature). The water stays piping hot for hours, and even by the end of the day it’s still warm. Only niggle is that the bottom of the pod is not quite flat so it’s a tiny bit wobbly on a table – still useable but i’m always slightly wary of it.
I use this when i’m out working in the woods. It provides just enough for a single small mug worth of hot drink. It’s kept my tea hot for a number of hours. The only problem i have with it is that it can be tricky not to overfill. The lid screws down deep into the flask and there is no fill line anywhere.
Super little flask, holds 200ml, perfect for a proper size coffee (ie; strong and short, not a bucket of milky stuff) no leaks, no problems.
This mini flask is exactly what i was looking for to store cold milk over night on a tea tray. It does the job and is both small enough to fit in a bag, if you wanted to, but big enough to hold enough milk for up to 6 cups of tea/ coffee. It hasn’t leaked for me when i turn it upside down but i haven’t transported it in a bag to really test it. It does appear to be leakproof. Only slight negative is the bottom of the flask is slightly rounded at edges so could possibly be unstable if something knocked the table it was on. Overall i’m very happy with it.

Bought for taking some hot water in my baby’s nappy bag for making up feeds on the go and it’s perfect, the size and shape means it slots in nicely. Would probably be good for taking one large tea or coffee to work in the morning too. The style is really nice, looks more expensive than it was. I chose the pink colour and i think it’s lovely.
I love this little flask- it’s sleek in design and keeps drinks very hot for hours. The flame red is a lovely colour and i’ve had loads of positive comments from friends about it (two of whom have now purchased their own :d). It’s just the right size for my handbag and i never have to worry about spillage either, it’s totally watertight.
I could not find anywhere how long the drinkpod would hold its heat, but i am happy to report that, from my own experience, of tea and soup, that the drinkpod kept everything hot for 12 hoursthese are comfortable to hold – very slim. The top unscrews and you drink straight from the pod, which is comfortable. Be careful with hot liquids. I think they are really easy to clean and they look so stylish. I purchased three and love them.
I love the size and aesthetic, although have not been that overwhelmed by the durability of this flask, it doesn’t feel that well made. This said, at that price i have been pleased with the use i’ve had from it. You only get a medium size mug full of liquids in it, but i’ve found it to be enough.
I bought three of the 200ml version so that my sons and i could all use them for packed lunches and picnics as an alternative to juice cartons with harmful straws. I have had them for about 4 months now and both my children use theirs in their lunchbox at school every day. They fit perfectly in a standard sized kids lunch box next to a sistema sandwich box. The flasks have never leaked and my children love the fact that their juice or smoothie is still fridge cold when they drink it at lunch time. I have never used these for hot drinks so cannot comment on whether they keep things hot, but they do keep drinks cold for a good 4-5 hours (haven’t tried any longer). The flasks are easy to clean as the plastic on the top of the body of the flask comes out, and the silicone seal on the lid comes out so that you can clean inside it. Definitely a good buy and i would recommend them.
It keeps cold water cold for hours and hot water for quite a time. It looks smart and is reasonably easy to hold even though i have arthritis in my hands. Very pleased that i bought it.
This is perfect size for taking fresh milk to work and keeps it nicely cold for the day. I think it’s too small for a full drink really and have only used it for cold milk. The plastic neck sleeve (described at length elsewhere) is designed to come out to wash, and you need to do that because otherwise it will smell bad quite quickly – wash all 3 parts separately and it’s absolutely fine. This latter point is the only reason for the 4 star not 5 star mark as i think it’s a bit fiddly.
I bought this as a giftboyfriend really loved ittea was made at 8am, and it was still boiling hot at 12:30pm. Looks sleek and has an average and manageable capacityreally would recommend for yourself, or as a gift. Will be buying one for myself.
