This has absolutely destroyed, burned, and buried thermos' reputation for me. Worst thing iv'e ever bought.
on 6 November 2015
I would completely not advise buying this to anyone. Myn currently resides in a bin at work.
I bought this expecting the good reputation of Thermos to be present here, Haha, How stupid of me.
As far as out of the box presentation goes. It looks very pretty, And i was eager to clean it up and try it out. And, Immediately, Problems occured.
1) There is a vacuum seal inbetween the bottom part and the top that you spin to provide the seal. If you wash this component (Usually with a form of washing up liquid), It will somehow get into this part, I left entire thing to soak in soapy water to clean it (as you do with any new thing you drink from right?) for about 30 minutes. before thouroughly rinsing everything with water.
I swear to god, Literally the first cup of tea i made, When i openeded it, There was about a solid inch of bubbles from washing up liquid (This is about 3 days later btw...) in my Tea. Not to mention an absolutley horrific odour coming from the flask (Kind of odd, But it actually smelt like ravioli which is weird)
2) After the above, I decided to take it home, wash it out thouroughly with just water and try again, This time i made coffee, And, This time there was a small amount of bubbles (Yes... from the washing up liquid i cleaned it with about 5 days prior and cleaned out TWICE). And, Once again, An absolutely pungent smell AND taste (It both tasted and smelt of rotten ravioli again...)
3) Last chance, Left it in water overnight, Made a cup of tea in the morning, Got to work, Opening up, No bubbles *Got exited*, And. Suddenly, An absolutely putrid scent of that smell again. Tasted the tea, And, Yep.... Still vile....
(Even when i just but juice in it or something, I still get this sickening ravioli smell / taste and i have no freaking idea why, Are there chemicals in this flask or something causing it ?)
So, I quickly binned it the flask after less then a week of owning it.
Seriously, I could not tell you how horrific this flask is, I would reccomend paying a bit more and getting an actual decent thermos flask, Perhaps they wont be as horrific as this. Personally i wont be as i just cant trust thermos anymore after this, Seriously guys, Worst flask ive ever owned.
