Need a quality Thermos

Title says it all. I have a Nissan 16 oz. that is nice that I throw in the backpack or briefcase for work. But I'm looking for something bigger. The large one I have now is lousy and coffee doesn't stay warm long when it's sitting in the trunk for a few hours of trout fishing.

I have the 26oz Stainless Thermos Nissan that has kept coffee hot just about all day.

I have a 40oz Thermos brand I get at Target (it's a vacuum type). It holds just about 8.5 cups, and I always have to be careful when I pour a new cup that I don't' burn myself.

On the days I'm really busy I've taken the last cup at 3pm (brewed at 6:30am) and still burnt myself. But I also make sure to let very hot tap water warm it up for at least 5 min. before I pour in the coffee.

That's a tip my uncle gave me years ago when we were going waterfowl hunting.
No matter how cold it was in the blind, the coffee stayed hot.

Stanley makes a great one. No matter which one you get, preheating it before you put the coffee in is a must to keep the coffee hot.

That is the key to keeping it hot in any thermos.

Agree on the pre-heating - it's the way to go for suprerior results I'm going to go to Target and look at the Thermos brand. The small one I have is excellent - I have to assume the larger one is as well and it seems to get good results here. Had the little one on the river on Saturday and Sunday in 40 degree weather and coffee was still plenty hot. Also will look at the Stanleys. My dad had one and he used it every day for work in the Mill. Rugged sucker. Probably more so than the Thermos.

I have a Stanley that I have had for 15 years. Looks like it has been to hell and back but it still keeps the coffee hot.

I have used Stanley's since I was a kid. We would take it fishing
in the fall & winter and it was never a problem.
