Rated 5 out of 5 by RobM Always cold/hot, throughout long work day
I have worked as a cake/chip/bread vendor for over 20 years. The trucks are not air conditioned, as much as people believe they are, and we are not permitted to let them idle to stay warm in the winter. Being subject to the elements for 12-14 hours a day, having cold/hot drinks are a must! These things keep coffee super hot for hours, and ice stays unmelted for the entire day (I usually eat the ice on my drive back to the warehouse at the end of the day) I do want to upgrade to the larger size, but will never go without one. The product has stayed consistently the same for as long as I've been using, which is well past the 20 years I've been doing these jobs. It's a smart purchase that you won't regret

I recently came into possession of the thermos that my dad has taken with him on fishing/camping trips for decades. He got it from his father who used it for the same purposes. I am proud to say that it still works as well as the day it was made, albeit not quite as shiny (but that's part of the fun, isn't it?). I can't wait to pass this down to my child because I KNOW it will last that long.

I have owned several Stanley's over the years and been very happy with them.... One I took to Iraq with me and had it the entire time I was in the service.... Got a big dent in the side of it but it still worked and did what it was supposed to do.... I lost it while moving and bought another 1.1qt and a red 16oz one hander.... Those stayed with me while I was a truck driver..... A couple of years back I bought an anniversary one in that classic green color that I have been taking to jobsites and usually carry in my truck.... They have been great they are classic and I love them...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Timbo Good product, better customer service
I bought the older, heavier version of this product a few years ago. This thing will keep contents hot or cold for hours upon hours. While I never abused it I did carry my Stanley Thermos to work, kept it with me when I was working on a vehicle or a house, and now upon graduation I carry it to the office. 1.1 Qt is the perfect size to keep you satisfied throughout the day. Unfortunately, the vacuum seal must of broken and lost it's capability of retaining/insulating heat. I contacted the customer service and without any issue they quickly contacted me back, and sent me a new one free of charge and shipping (this topic is important to me. It's unbelievable how many companies expect one to pay for shipping after a product he/she already purchased failed and resulted in an inconvenience for that individual). I highly recommend this product and after such a great experience I'll continue to be purchasing Stanley products.

I recently bought a 30yr. old classic vacuum bottle at a second hand store. I am a broke college student, it was cheap, and I've wanted one for a while. After getting home, I finally opened it up and realized the stopper was missing. I then sent an email to Stanley requesting info about a replacement stopper, fully expecting to be charged 5-10$ for the new part. Instead, the email stated that a new stopper was in the mail and should arrive in a few days, which it did, free of charge, no questions asked. I know it seems like a small thing, but to me it meant a lot. And if I ever buy another one, for whatever reason, I will buy it from Stanley.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rogerthelodger Excellent pouring
Perhaps a small feature, but this thermos pours perfectly. Call me weird, but it makes me happy each time. My compliments to the engineers who worked on this detail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Raymond The thermos I grew up with.
I have lived on a farm since I was very young. My dad has owned this thermos since he was kid, and it has always been present for every job that needed to be done. His thermos could be seen on the tractor, in the truck, or laying in a pile of sawdust from dropping trees all day. When I began college last summer, having hot coffee meant everything. It provided the fuel to do well. I bought the classic thermos I grew up with, and it has since been seen wherever I have been. From the floor of my Jeep, to the side of my bench in the chemistry lab, this thermos is an extention of my body. I look forward to the memories this green bottle will hold through the rest of my life.
