Anyone used these flasks?

Need to get a decent flask or two for the boat and work. Seem to get through 3 or 4 stainless flasks each winter so wanted to try spending a bit more and hopefully get something more useful.

Has anyone used these ?

Thermos Hercules Steel Flask 1.0L: Official UK Thermos Shop: All Thermos Flasks

Are they any good?

Is there something better?

sainsburys do really good stainless flasks, dead cheap, keep water hot enough to make a decent brew for 12hrs, use them on the rib, off roading and for work, great value for money

Yeah I looked at the Stanley ones, are they decent then?

I've destroyed so many cheapo supermarket versions its getting beyond funny now. I do genuinely try and look after them, but it seems that after a few minor dents they don't retain any heat

I've got a couple of Aladdin food flasks, one's a year old and used daily, the other is nearly 10 years old and still works perfectly.

Another vote for Alladin here, we bought one to take to Disneyland Paris two winters ago. It keeps water scalding hot all day, and is as hard wearing as any I have ever come across.

The other option is a jetboil stove of course.

I have a stainless steel Thermos one which is at least 10 year old and it has loads of dents in it but still keeps water hot for a good 12 hours.

Another vote for the hercules from me, had mine for over 2 years and take it to work everyday where it gets bashed around and is none the worse. Double insulated too so keeps warm for aaaages (5 year guarantee too)
