I have a 10 cup thermos brand and it works great. Keeps everything hot for hours. It was 16* yesterday with a 20-25 mph wind and my coffee was still as hot as when I put it in after several hours.

Even a nice used one is better than the china garbage, Ive bought two American mades recently at Antique Shops, gave 5 bucks for one and 7 for the other. They both work great

agree I have old american one made in 1979 got it from my dad and it still keeps coffee hot all day as long as I preheat it well. The new chinese ones are garbage screw china made junk.
Red neck engineering- If ya can't fix it with duck tape, bailing wire, zip ties, and JB weld well than it can't be fixed.

If it moves and it aint suppose to duck tape it. If doesn't move and its suppose to put WD-40 on it.

I don't know about Stanley but you should look into the Thermos brand by Nissan. This thing is a lifesaver on cold days. I tested it out on the first day I got it by pouring hot water in it. The next day it was as hot as it was when I first poured it in. It comes with a lifetime guarantee in the bottle too. I bought at cabelas.Image

I forgot to add that you have to preheat like all other vacuum bottles by pouring hot water in it before you pour the coffee in so it will stay warm.

Go with Stanley, I have two ones an American made and the other was made in china. Had the one made in china for two weeks dropped it and broke the rivets on the handle, called Stanley they sent me a new one no questions asked. Sucks they are made in china but they stood behind it.

Get the American made one. Had anew Chinese one....it was crap! Leaked, cup kept falling off, and never would stay warm. Yes, I pre-heated.

Bought an American on and have had ZERO issues!!

Just had to go dig my old Stanley out and see where it was made. Whew! Nashville, TN. Never seems to matter how cold it is outside, it's always hot inside, including a day-long float/avoid-the-ice slalom down the Muskegon River one January, high of 11 that day.

Nissan is great--- I have an old one. Pre-heating the thermos is key. Just fill it with hot water the night before and it will keep lots longer!

Nissan from Cabelas works well. I have two of them. I have the 1.9 quart and the pint vaccum bottles and both keep my coffee hot all day. If I'm out in a boat with a group of guys I grab the big one and if I'm walking in I take the small one. The small one fits well in the handwarmer on the front of my waders for easy access.

Thank you so much for the good info guys. I went with a Thermos Nissan and used it this morning. Love it. Been outside all day, and here in NC, it was 9 this morning with a high of 26. Coffee is still piping hot and it has been in there for 5 hours already outside the whole time.

Some things in life you can tell by holding and the construction how well it will work. Along with the price point.

If it's made to 'look' rugged, it's probably not. If it speaks to your Grand dad's days, it probably isn't worth a crap.

Stanley and Remington come to mind.

I've got a Stanley that's probably older then most posters here. Gone thru more cups and stoppers then I can remember,been stripped and repainted twice. It keeps my coffee hot all day,as a matter of fact its still warm (not hot) enough to drink the next day. Had a wide mouth too but somebody swiped it on a job site.

I've got two Nissan / Thermos brands. One for coffee, one for hot chocolate for the kids. Keeps things hot for several hours. All stainless too. Had them for several years.
