This flask kept the contents very hot. The lid can be used as a cup and has a plastic liner to protect the lips from scalds. The stopper is the press-down variety, and the outside has a grippy, anodised finish. But the press-down pourer may not be to everyone’s liking as this type can clog up, so it’s not ideal if you like to take soup in your flask. Some others have more detailed instructions.
