Rated 5 out of 5 by SUPmom Great at keeping food hot!
Does a great job of keeping food hot! I use it daily for my daughter's lunch - she says her food is still steaming when she opens it 5 -6 hours after I've packed it. Preheating is a MUST and making sure it's full helps too (add a ball of aluminum foil if it's not going to be full of food).

Rated 5 out of 5 by olliebob Great product...
This is a great thermal food container. I preheat it for a few minutes with hot water from my Keurig, before adding the piping hot food. After 5 hours, the food is at a perfect temperature for eating. We have the 9 oz. size, which is perfect for my pre-K girl for lunch. Larger eaters might want the 14 oz. size. Don't buy larger than what you actually need, since partially filled thermoses don't keep food as hot as a totally filled one. We also own a Foogo thermos, but it doesn't work nearly as well as this one. I also like that this LL Bean container has a wider mouth.

Keeps food very cold longer when I put 3 or 4 ice cubes in first; even next day the cubes haven't completely melted at the bottom. Try it, you'll like it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ramboralph It keeps food warm! And, cold as well!
I teach. After 5 hours, it is still warm. It is important to pre-treat the the container with hot water. I've learned to like my other vacuum containers with foldable spoons which would be a plus.
