Wide mouthed Stainless thermos..

Post by Alf_resco. » Mon Aug 31, 2020 4:08 pm

Anyone got any real world suggestions for a wide mouthed Thermos?

I always struggle to get my ordinary ones cleaned out after flling them with soup and things..
Real world suggestions would go a long way.

Drop it in a bucket of hot water with some washing powder and leave overnight... Bingo!

Hubs has one of these for soups and stews in the winter and it's been really good. It comes with a lifetime guarantee and when he lost the gasket from the lid they sent him a whole new lid free of charge. We got ours from a local store but this is the one.

I've got a "Thermocafe" by Thermos for winter work soup...... Not used it much as it hasn't been winter yet. Five quid, pre-owned from Ebay.

Got a bog standard one from Argos. Just rinse well, soak in hot & soapy, then wash thoroughly - a big bottle brush can help with that. If it smells, I leave it standing filled with water & a tablespoon of bicarb.

Anything I have like that, if it's stored long term, it gets a tablespoon of bicarb dropped in it and the lid set on top but not done up tight. Easy enough to rinse it out before use & stops it getting that musty smell.

Keep your eyes open in charity shops too - if they're letting people in, anyway. I got one for 50p, perfectly serviceable. I realise you probably want to get it sorted, but you could always have two at that price :)

BTW I have a bog brush (bought new for the purpose) I use as a bottlebrush because regular ones are a bit skinny
