The last Stanley flask I bought was a complete waste of money so glad you got a good one lol
It does seem to be hit and miss with these flasks. It had it's first session yesterday and performed as I hoped. Filled with boiling water, I took the tea bags and milk separate. It was a cold day and the wind never gave up for the four/five hours we were there. I'll try coffee made in the flask next time. It's a much better flask than my previous and the price, it bloody well should be:)

Why didn't I buy one of these earlier! I dropped my flask last year which exploded on impact. I posted at the time that our lass pointed out there were a few other flasks knocking about which I'd forgot all about. I used one of the flasks for the first time on Saturday at Morcambe. I charged it up just after 4 am, and filled it with coffee around 4.30 am. The first cup some where around 6.45 am was hot, the second cup 40/45 minutes was warm. By 9 am it was lukewarm...Sunday afternoon I took the bull by the horns and ordered a Stanley 1.9 L on Amazon, which arrived yesterday morning. Upon opening the box it was instant love, £36.00 well spent...I couldn't wait to get the kettle on and fill it up...24 hours later and the water is still piping hot. I shouldn't be this excited but I am, it looks sexy, it feels sexy, and by God does it keep it hot!

I have an old Aladdin metal flask, keeps drinks hot all day but weighs as much as a breezeblock when it’s full! I travel light and have long walks to a lot of my venues so would be nice to have something a bit/ lot lighter to take with me.
How are these weight wise?

Have had the Stanley 1.9l for a couple of months but hadn't even taken it out the box until reading this last week .
So did what it said,charged it up(filled it with boiling water for 5 minutes) .
Emptied it then filled it again . Water was still steaming hot 12 hours later . It's the made in China one
I will try charging my 1 litre flasks & see if they work better for pre heating .

Had one stanley and it was rubbish, had several other people say the same, I`ve got 2x different sized asda el cheapos that are grey in colour which are great at keeping the heat in which the stanley didn`t.
If you want to brew up on the beach (and cook too) get yourself a Ghillie/Kelly kettle

I have 2 of these, very light, and excellent at keeping drinks hot. Best stainless ones I've had by miles. Not cheap mind!

I have been using my Kelly kettle when coarse fishing for the last 20 plus years, excellent bit of kit, but a bit bulky for taking to the beach, made soups, stews, fry ups, tea, etc... it developed a leak after about 15 years, where the stopper was fastened to the body of the kettle, I repaired it with metal weld epoxy, and it still works wwll, no leaks. Its a bit battered and dented here and there after being tripped over , dropped etc , but still works. I always take e xtra water with me in a Coca Cola bottle that is w rapped in newspaper and carried up inside the "flu" the paper comes in handy for lighting the Kelly as well.

Who can resist a bargain. An original Nashville made half gallon Stanley, £3.00 on the local flea market. The new one I bought a couple of years ago is still a fine flask in terms of keeping everything hot, but it's tempting to hold the handle when removing the cap, and the join feels like a weak spot. The old one on the other hand feels bomb proof. And a difference in weight! The new one weighs 38.90 ounces, the old one weighs in at 56.40 ounces.

😄I bought mine over 20 years ago, the wide neck one. Great for soup and stew. A bit rusty now but it's served me well over the years on the beach & boat.😄

Hello Noman😄 Thankfully this one is spotless on the inside, still a very usable flask. Wouldn't want to take it on any hikes as it's bloody heavy when full.
