Rated 5 out of 5 by DME1972 Excellent
I have bought and tried more thermoses than I care to count, especially because they aren't cheap! My kids have always complained the same thing, can't eat the food because it turned cold, even after letting it sit with boiling hot water for about 1/2 hour before I filled with piping hot food. I read the reviews and because of LL Beans generous return policy, bought the 9oz to try. I have not been disappointed. My son said the food is steaming hot when he goes to use for his school lunch. The size is perfect, fits a normal bowl-serving size amount of food. I will now be purchasing 2 more for my other kids.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by smalldogwalker keeps cold
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.
