I needed to replace my Stanley 0:5 litre flask as it was just not keeping drinks very hot any more, in fact it had not been doing a very good job from the start despite it being a Stanley and quite expensive for a flask. Id done my research and found a number of reviews giving Primus good write ups, all i really want is to keep my drinks hot for a 6 to 8 hour period. So found Facewest sell Primus at a good price and post out free, bonus. Item arrived in three days, good start. Really nice looking flask, comes with two stoppers so if a seal goes on one, you can use the spare so flask still works, nice touch. Outer coating is really grippy, so easy to handle with gloves or really cold hands. Cup is a good size and 0:75 is ideal size for one person, a good 4 cups worth. Pre heating with boiling water and leaving for 10 minutes before filling with hot drink as per instructions is recommended. Well what can i say, first cup on a really cold day was scolding hot, second third and last were piping hot too! Exactly what i wanted, can't recommend it enough, i can't say how long this will continue for as I've only had it a week or so but so far so very good. Would highly recommend Primus if your after a well made, and most of all very efficient flask at reasonable price.
