“ Brand: Stanley / Product Type: Jar „
I have had my Stanley Heatkeeper Food Jar for around 6 months now and it has come in very handy.
I was after a flask to put some homemade soup in to take to work. Being that the soup I make is quite thick, I needed something I could spoon the soup out of, so an ordinary hot drink flask was no good.
Then, while I was at a local supermarket, I found this Stanley Heatkeeper Food Jar on the shelves in various colours. I picked grey and took it home. It cost me £4.99 and was well worth it, in my opinion. It holds 0.5L of food.
The Stanley Heatkeeper food jar is quite chunky, I'm guessing this is due to the patented heatkeeper technology and double-wall unbreakable wall insulation inside. I can vouch for it being durable and tough as I accidently dropped in on the concrete ground outside the house and it didn't even mark it, much less damage it!
I make the soup up the night before, then put into the heatkeeper food jar and it is then put into the microwave for a few minutes. It says it keeps the food hot for 4 to 6 hours and in my experience it does. I usually microwave it around 7.15am and it's still very warm (not steaming hot, but just the right temperature to eat the soup at) at 1pm when I eat my lunch at work.
The other day I put left-over hotpot in the heatkeeper food jar (minus the meat - for some reason I don't like chunks of meat in hotpot, but I love the veg in the gravy!) and took it to work with me. The gravy thickened up quite a bit, but it was still delicious.
One thing I must mention is that it comes with it's own spoon which folds and slots easily into the top of the lid.
The only downside is that I sometimes have trouble getting the lid off it, but that's probably because I'm a bit of a weakling... I struggle with jam jars too!
The Stanley Heatkeeper Food Jar is definitely a product I'd recommend for these winter lunch breaks.
Heatkeeper food jar is capable of keeping your food hot for up to 6 hours.
