The press and pour type are more difficult to clean as stuff can build up between the seal and the press part has to be pressed in to get at it.

If you know this it's easy to clean. (y)

It's even easier if the owner takes the time to see if it is a push to pour system that can be dismantled :)

My Zojirushi is brilliant, but a little too small for winter. My mrs just got me a Spear and Jackson (yes that's right) and it's very good up to now, only a tenner from Home bargains.

Stainless steel Stanley or Aladdin or thermos

I find the smaller ones with the popper tops dont keep things properly hot

I have just invested in a large green Stanley one, better than anything I've had before. The only thing I don't like, and it's the same with every one I've ever had, it just doesn't taste quite right out of a plastic cup. Does anyone take a china mug with them ? I just fill the flask with water and take a small amount of milk and some tea bags, so it's not the flask tainting the tea. I stopped putting tea bags in the flask after an incident many years ago.Anyone remember coffee bags? look just like tea bags, and muggins here managed to get a coffee one mixed with the tea bags, vile is not the word.

This will be my fourth year of owning this one:

It still keeps drinks piping hot all day (without preheating)
And - as the name suggests - it floats - mine having gone for an early bath at least three times.

That's interesting Simon, I also had one of those in the past but gave it away after I wasn't impressed but its heat retaining qualities, even after preheating.

Thermos Hercules Stainless Steel Floating Flask is ideal....robust, not too heavy. As it says, it floats which has saved me more than once. Highly recommend

Stanley best of the lot, keeps the water red hot all day long. I have a soup flask as well

Got them both the flask is amazing been going for years, made the mistake of buying the cheap rubbish ones before. The soup flask is ok but imo not as good as the flask

I still use an old plastic Thermos one, I broke it a little while back and was distraught. I did have a different flask that had the same inner, so swapped it over. It gets in all my photos, quite the tart really......
