I take this in the mountains literally . I set it directly on a fire and heat up my food . Clean up and head out . I love the extra large capacity *enough for 2 ... the spoon stays put and the bowl holds enough... I confess I eat out of the thermos section like 80% of the time .... Cant go wrong with stainless steel!

This food system is the perfect tag along on any journey. I've taken it far into the backcountry as well as just a few miles down the trail. This with one little burner as you're stove and you're set for a nice warm meal wherever adventure may take you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MANOWAR Great for groats!!!
I got this for a quick breakfast container. I make the groats at 11pm and by 7:30am they are perfectly cooked and still hot. I used it Mon-Fri and it's perfect. High quality product I expect to use for years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by jennypainkiller Stanley Mountain Food Cooking System
Bought this because i kinda liked the design of it, but its rather heavy compared to its size & volume, even when you remove the cooking-pot.
Furthermore it's unclear what kind of Plastic it is using (Plastic-Code "Other 7", so it could be a mixture of the rather harmless 1-6 or if it is really BPA-Free (Lid&Rubber Ring) Tritan which was atleast suspected to have other endrocine Substance in some News-Articles.
I'd really wished for Stanley to keep this System-Design (which btw is pretty neat), and remake it in truly "99%" Stainless Steel like the "Mizu D8" Waterbottle, which besides a silicone sealing ring has nothing made out of Plastic all around.
It keeps the food warm to medium-hot for about 7-8Hours if you pre-heat the flask with boiling water before filling it up with your soup/chili/whatever.
After 13Hours it ain't hot even if you preheat it with boiling water, i'd say its nether cold nor warm but somewhere in between on the heat-scale probably 110-125 °F ?

First time of using pot to boil water on small butane camp stove and the plastic in the handle melted rendering it useless. A metal piece in the handle would make this perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by EricNolen Mountain Food System Fail
I have 4 Stanley vacuum bottles made in the USA (3 1qt and 1 pint) that I can fill with coffee or other hot liquids and 10,12,24 hours later still hot. Hot water 24 hours later is still hot to the touch. I wanted the same for my food. I bought a vintage Uno Vac food jar that was new in the box. Used it for hot soup and in 5 hours it was less than lukewarm. I started looking for a Stanley and see 13 hours hot for this one and 15 hours for the wide mouth food jar. I'm a Boy Scout leader camper and thought with the added pot the Mountain Food System at 13 hours would be ideal. My first try with it was a FAIL (3-10-16). After 5 Hours my soup was lukewarm. Today 3-15-16 is another FAIL. Boiled water and filled to heat it up, put soup in and 5 hour later LUKEWARM. I will also be doing a video and post to Youtube, before I purchased one I did video searches for testing but never saw a full test.
