Item arrived as described and very promptly delivered earlier than i actually expected. The item has not as yet been used but i can only hope it will perform as the description implied.
I fill it with boiling water, then again to ensure that it stays hot. It it does and i could make hot tea from it all day. Saves repeatedly boiling the kettle. Itll be ideal foe when we have guests – they can help themselves – its a smart looking thing to have on the sideboard or even the table, and also when we’re in the garden. We won’t have to keep going into the house to make tea.

Comments from buyers
“Good capacity stays hot
, Insulated Flask dispenser
This is a great sized flask which keeps heat well. Filled last thing at night it is good for tea, coffee in the morning. The ‘press type’ pump works well. The lid hinge needs care but has not failed, just clicked apart once or twice but only due to ‘finger trouble’ when open or filling. Will buy more as great for meeting tea breaks and saving boiled water rather than letting it go cold in the kettle wasting energy.
Keeps the water hot for hours, excellent.
Useful when catering for a large number. The water keeps hot for a couple of hours so you can fill it ahead of time, doesn’t take up too much room.
Makes serving mulled wine a breeze. Wish i has bought one a few years ago.
Purchased for local coastguard team. Provides hot water over a long enough period of time when we are out on searches. Sturdy and reasonably durable. Must be maintained in an upright position or liquid will leak out. Prompt delivery and also at a fair price.
I cannot believe how efficient this product is. I filled this jug with boiling water, left it shut until the kettle had almost reboiled again, then emptied it and refilled with boiling water, shutting the lid, refilled the kettle once more, and filled the jug to capacity. This was at 07:30, having used the jug during the day, i had a final cup of hot water at 20:00hrs and was surprise to find that it was still hot enough to use. If i was having tea and adding milk, it probably would not have been quite hot enough by that time. It was still hot enough to have burnt a small child after 13hrs from the initial fill. I do not think i could have asked for better. (please note, i had no intention of burning anyone). I would recommend this product to anyone who wished to save on electricity, or was due to have their electricity cut off for several hours. I would also recommend it to anyone who is camping out, and for conference or large coffee mornings and caterers.
Used loads – brilliant product.
I bought this to replace and old one that i broke having just got back from touring europe. All that way and up the house stairs, and smash. So good point about this new one is that it is unbreakable. It keeps drinks really cold and the ice cubes that i put inside were still in cubes the next after 12 hours or more. Just boiling hot water from the kettle did not stay as hot as i would like so i was a little dissapointed. After 3 -4 hours the temperature dropped (not sure by how much, but would like it to have stayed hotter like my old one, especially when usuing tea bags for a drink) i’ve tried warming the pot so to speak, before hand, and second boiling the kettle and then filling it which helps a bit. Either way, useful and good value for money. Will probably use it more for cold drinks now though, rather than boiling water. I should have used a thermometer to measure it every hour or so, but then opening the unit would create a loss of temperature each time. It’s good enough for a few hours and absolutely brilliant for warm to hot water on a journey for washing kids faces, hand, washing up en route/camper van hot water etc. As i say, good value for money.
I’m a taxi driver and i like to drink very hot coffee , one fill up will last me the full shift as long as you pre heat first. The only thing i found is the lid is held on by a small bit of plastic , so be carefull.
Was purchased for my kids football matches, does exactly what it says on the tin, lovely hot beverages on these very cold mornings, would recommend to everyone, depending on size of cup it makes upto 10 mugs worth, very good.
This is excellent, it keeps your water or coffee/tea hot for at least 5 plus hous making it ideal for our training company for people to help themselves to tea/coffee. I am extremely please with thyis product and can highly recommend it.
This product was very well packed, extremely good delivery and holds the heat well, easy to keep clean and is unbreakable.
I use the airpot for keeping coffee hot for our coffee mornings. I always pre warm the airpot with hot water and the coffee has remained hot for at least 8 hours. The wide neck allows for easier cleaning so would be suitable for soups as well. It has already earned its price and is good value for money. I have always kept it upright as there is a warning that it will leak if it isn’t upright. I would highly recommend this product.
The flask works great it is used every week in church keeps the tea or coffee hot for a long time would buy again.
Large and good product it is just what we need to ensure that we can provide the groups with the hot water they need.
Arrived before date stated and we used it on the weekend and product does what it says on the box. We are very pleased with it and very pleased with the price that we paid for it.
We have found them to be easy to use and very good at keeping water hot, to allow people to make tea & coffee as required.
Absolutely great, they are keeping ice for over 2 days so looking forward to knowing they will keep things hot for just as long.
Does everything it says on the box.
This is a good flask and keeps the water hot for about 4 hours. The lid is a bit flimsy, but for the money is just right.
It’s not bad but doesn’t stay hot that long.
