Thermos Stainless King Food Flask 0.47L Blue by BHL
I have used this this thermos for 5 months now.
If I preheat the thermos as recommended I found that porridge I made at 6.00am was still nice and warm at mid day, but actually still too hot at 9.00am.
So if I am using it for breakfast I do not need to preheat the thermos.
The stainless steel top became unstuck from the plastic bowl almost immediately, which was dissapointing but not a problem.
The spoon in the lid is a nice idea. However, it is so shallow, that you can hardly get any food on it, so I used a soup spoon instead.

Build quality is very good and the fiitings to attach it the bike work really well.
There are 2 settings, one for constant and one for flashing, which consumes less battery.
The light is very white and can be seen easily by other road users.
Unfortunately, when I cycled at night on unlit paths/roads I found that the illumination of the light was so weak that I had to slow my speed down to a crawl for safety reasons.
I can therefore recommend this light to be used during dawn and dusk to appear visible to others and to comply with the law.
It is, however, totally inadequate as a torch to help you see where you are going in the dark.

The fact that the only review on the cover is written by an anonymous 'Nurse Consultant' is a giveaway that there are other, better books on this subject out there.
What I found frustrating is that it gives the kCal per portion size. However, the portion sizes vary so much it is hard to really know how many calories you are consuming.
For example, for chocolate custard it gives 71 kCal for 5tbsp, and for egg custard it gives130 kCal for 1 serving. But the book does not say what 1 serving size is.
There is a list of portion sizes at the front of the book but it is incomplete, there is no category for desserts. And it is a hassle to keep having to refer back to this page to… Read more
