I bought this as I have an early start at work, thought it would be ideal to take my porridge in for my breakfast. Less than an hour and a half later when i went to eat it, it was stone cold - and when I put the porridge in, it was bubbling hot. The only person that would appreciate this pot is Goldilocks!!!

I had hoped this would enable me to take soup into work for lunch but it's not much use. It doesn't even keep the soup warm for 3 hours and it leaks everywhere even if you're really careful trying to keep it upright. The only use it is now is as a bowl which was not the idea. Shame.

I bought this for my 4 year old daughters packed lunch as I needed something to keep food warm, this was definately the wrong choice, as the food went stale cold soon after you fill it up. It does not keep in liquid food as it leaks. I would not reccomend anyone to waste their money on this. I am requesting a refund and sending this back!!!!!

I love the look, colours, size, very useful handle but I bought it to keep my food hot! It is after all called a HOT POT but within an hour breakfast food is warmish & by lunch time stone cold (I have two Hot Pots). You can feel the heat on the outside. If you want it for dry cold food it is great (though the food may go warm in the summer).

It also leaks like mad. After it leaked the first time I have been very careful to go as tight as possible but to no avail. Apart from oozing when the lid is on tight, when you open it all the gravy that has been sitting in the screw threads floods out. You have been warned

It is such a pity the design was not tested properly before being marketed.

I bought this believing it would be great, for my daughter to take to school with warm soup..
I heated it just as described, and screwed on the lid, I was met later that day with a starving 12 year old, who couldn't remove the lid.
Like so many other reviews I have since read! (doh!) only my 15 stone rugby playing husband could remove the lid, which then splattered tomato soup, (cold) all over .
It is not fit for purpose, if you gingerly screw on the lid, it leaks like nothing else, and if you screw it on so it just catches and feels secure, if you have hot food inside, it clamps itself closed, by the time you come to open it. Ours even has the valve in the lid,a new measure to prevent this, but sadly it is not worth a kick up the backside.Look else where.
The lid is now in two pieces and the handle is loose.

Bought this the other day. Its sturdy enough, nice design, spork is a bit awkward to use. It also does not keep the food warm. You would really need to be eating this about 1 hour after putting the food in, otherwise its just stone cold. You can microwave it though, but thats not what I bought this for.

Its not suitable for soup. It leaks alot, solid foods like past/rice etc are your best bets.

I really woudln't recommend buying this.

This product does not keep food warm and after just a a few uses wouldn't open. My daughter ended up with no lunch even after 3 teacher tried to prize it open - my husband, a strong ox couldn't open it!

Very disappointed!!!

After 6 uses this is now broken. The size and shape of the item are a design flaw. the heat of the item causes a vacuum and then you cant open it. its quite a joke in my office that it usually takes at least 5 people to open my porridge in the morning.... no more though as this morning the handle snapped off.
i have brought a new one & it definately isnt like this.
