When it’s cold outside, nothing is more important than having a thermos bottle to keep your favorite hot drink or soup warm. But before you buy a thermos bottle, there are three things you need to consider: the type of material it’s made out of (plastic or steel), how big the mouth of the thermos is, and if it has insulation. In this post, we will share some of the best thermos bottles available in India!
What is a thermos bottle and how does it work?
A thermos bottle is a type of insulated container that protects its contents from external heat, cold or both. It works by trapping air inside the walls to keep it in contact with the liquid and protect it. The most common types are made out of stainless steel (though some are encased in plastic), typically have one opening at the top for pouring, and include a carrying strap attached to either side near the bottom so you can easily carry them on your back when needed!
The majority of these bottles come with insulation built-in – but not always – which will help maintain their temperature as long as possible without needing an additional layer such as thermal pack wrap like Zip-lock freezer bags do.
Can I use my thermos for hot beverages as well?
As long as the thermos is rated for both hot and cold, you can use it to store either type of beverage. A stainless steel bottle is a great all-rounder because they have been specially designed to keep liquids at their desired temperature. They are made from thick metal which blocks external heat or cold so its contents stay warm for longer periods. The most important thing about this kind of container is that it won’t crack when exposed to freezing temperatures – making them perfect if you want one that’s 100% leakproof without having any plastic parts inside your drink.
Thermos vacuum insulation technology also prevents leaks by sealing in food’s natural flavors and nutrition while still keeping liquids chilled for up to 12 hours. So when you’re traveling, hiking, or just enjoying the sunshine outside, there’s no need to worry about spills and messy leaks.
Why is there an air gap at the top of my thermos bottle?
The vacuum thermos is made up of two parts; the inner and outer shell. The air gap between these two halves, (and at the top of your thermos), was designed to help maintain a tight seal on any liquid inside it so that there are no leaks.
How do you clean a thermos bottle?
The thermos bottles with a wider mouth are easy to clean and can be washed in the dishwasher if desired. If you have a narrow mouth thermos bottle, we recommend that handwashing is your best option to avoid dislodging food particles into your drink which could make it taste strange or give an unpleasant odor. The Inner flask should also be cleaned with water from time to time while the outer shell does not need any special care.
Is there any downside to using a thermos bottle?
No, thermos bottles are a safe and popular way to keep your drinks hot or cold for hours. However, there are some common issues that might bother a few. According to some users, a thermos bottle is difficult to drink without spilling because there’s usually not enough space at the top where no liquids get into – this might mean having to stop what you’re doing to drink. Some also feel that the water tastes very strange after a while because it’s been in an enclosed space with metal or plastic.
