[QUOTE=whisper;502294]Any recommendations for a flask to keep food warm (something like soup, meatballs, curry) and also one to keep tea warm, it has to be unbreakable

Or are those self warming meals any good or any suggestions to what you take out to eat?


These are good a flask it will keep you're food or drink hot all day but pricy it's worth paying a bit more to get a good flask "Stanley flask"

See, there's the two things you did wrong - i.e. tasting:
1: A Hot Can
2: Cat Food (for comparative purposes, presumably? Hopefully!)

I CAN confirm however, that catfood tastes absolutely foul (unsurprisingly). Don't ask me how I know this....

Whisper - do us all a favour/flavour and try a few of these: Linky

I'm dying to know what they're like but I'm too tight to buy a few to find out...

Yeah, no - there IS a need. I need YOU to taste 'em. I'm really picky about my "scoff" and I wouldn't trust a paid reviewer... "Mmmm, yummie, where's my money?"

G'wan get a mixed pack and "spill the beans"

I fancy the Hotpot and the "Pawstah"

Crosse and Blackwell HeaterMeals aren't too bad-far better than hotcans,and heat better than the Wayfayrer meals in my experience but so expensive I only keep them a couple of them onboard for emergency use.
A pack of 5 would pay for a good food flask.

Hot cans bit expensive & I don't think they get all that hot ,, all day breakfast seems to be the most popular one among lifeboat crews,

Wife's just bought one of the large pump action 3 ltr flasks that seems ok , keeps coffee scalding hot for over 12 hours though once it gets used up past half full it then soon seems to go cool fast ,

Another slightly down side is the more the liquid gets pumped out the more you have to pump as the liquid is forced out by air pressure ,
when full one press of the lever will just about fill a cup though as the liquid gets used up more presses of the pump lever is required to about 6 to fill the same cup as it nears the bottom ,
easy to clean out through its wide neck though I can just about get me hand inside to wipe it out wont take thick soup or lumpy stuff though owing to the outlet pipe .

Sounds like the boats in bed for the winter. Either that, or you need to get out more
