Hi all,

For those of you that have seen me at model shows know that I always have a flask of coffee with me. Well, I seem to have broken my second flask in the last three months. On both occasions the glass inside has broken.

It was this one - https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Thermos-Flas ... hermos+1.8

Can anyone recommend a top notch flask that has a similar capacity? Ideally one that will keep my coffee warm for at least 12 hours and can stand a bit of a bash as I am evidently a bit heavy handed and clumsy with mine.

Mark.

Go for a twin wall, stainless steel flask, no breakages!

Don't go for a cheap-ish stainless steel outer one - they're more useless than the paper cup you get at a McD.
By cheap I mean the ones in Tesco or ASDA

1.8L of coffee!

:shock: :wow: :heatwave: :nailbite: :angryfire: :puke:

You're sure it's not tremors and agitation that leads to broken flasks. :sofa:

Fred, I won't do the cheaper ones. You pay for what you get in most things, so I know that quality comes at a price.

Jon, :rotfl: :rotfl: It's got to last me all day. After buying an expensive (ish) flask, I can't afford to buy cups of coffee. I need to save money so I can buy more models at these shows!

Chris, Paul- Thanks for the advice. I have ended up with one of these - http://www.thermosonline.co.uk/store/Th ... -8L/sp_305

But I only paid £20 from Argos. I looked throughthe reviews before I bought one and came across this negative review - From Lyn4 'Its the worst flask i ever had only keeps the water hot for a couple of days.had to get a refund.' :shock: What was this person expecting!

Anyway, the first test is tomorrow. Looks like this one will take a bit of effort to break.

Mark.
