Thermos Flasks and Insulated Storage Boxes


Thermos, vacuum flask & Co.

"Paul on board." It says something like that on the rear windows of many cars. This sticker signals today's freedom of movement with our offspring. With an insulated container, a thermos or an insulated bottle, you provide warm meals and drinks for your child while traveling. The contents are kept safe in them. Transporting boiled water? In an insulated bottle with a leak-proof cap: no problem. So nothing stands in the way of a picnic with baby at the zoo.

How do insulated containers actually work? What is the difference between a thermos and an insulated bottle made of stainless steel?

There are thermoses made of glass and insulated bottles made of stainless steel. They work on the same principle. Inside, they consist of two containers. Between the two is a vacuum created by taking the air from this interstitial space. This provides an initial heating effect. Where there is no air, heat cannot escape. In addition, in a glass thermos, the inner bottle container is mirrored. This in turn provides a second heat effect. The heat radiation from the contents is reflected back.

With an insulated bottle made of stainless steel, there are no mirrored inner walls and no glass. Nevertheless, the double-walled vacuum insulation here provides an equally excellent warming effect. And if you opt for a shatterproof stainless steel variant, you're on the safe side. Because especially when dealing with small children, safety is paramount.

What is the difference between the individual insulated containers?

An insulated bottle or thermos is more for hot or cold liquids. An insulated container (keep-warm box) is for storing warm foods such as a baby's porridge. Alternatively, you can of course use the keep warm box for a hot meal for lunch at the office.

And how long does an insulated bottle or container keep the temperature?

Clearly, it depends on the temperature that is being poured in. But the ambient temperature also plays a role. You can assume up to 24 hours. If the filling temperature of boiled water is 92° and the ambient temperature is 20°, you can expect just under 40° after 24 hours.

Achieve the best cleaning results when cleaning thermos & Co!

It is not recommended to clean a thermos/insulated bottle in the dishwasher. The risk of flash rust formation cannot be ruled out even with a high-quality 18/8 stainless steel. Dishwasher tabs also contain a high concentration of several chemical substances. For a thorough cleaning of insulated bottles rather too much of a good thing. In addition, residues of these ingredients can stick even after a dishwasher cycle at high temperature. And you certainly don't want your child to ingest small amounts of them. Dishwasher powder, while containing fewer chemical compounds, is not really advisable either.

Clean thermos and insulated container properly: here's how

Simply use ordinary dishwashing detergent, a sturdy bottle brush, warm or, depending on the degree of contamination, hot tap water and thoroughly clean the thermos inside and out. Rinse several times with clean water. Please do not use any solvents or scouring agents. Afterwards, leave the thermos open and upside down to dry. Tip: There are special drip stands for glass carafes. These ensure that the residual moisture can drip off, as the vessel hangs in the air and is open from below. You can find something like this in wine stores, for example. Clean the closure with detergent as well and let it dry well separately as well.

And where can I find a small thermos for babies?

The company reer from the Swabian Leonberg offers especially small sizes. Here you can find insulated bottles and thermoses in different sizes (0,3 - 0,5 - 0,7). You can also choose between different colors: Silver, black, blue, red, pacific, anthracite or berry.

In addition, at reer you will find other insulated containers such as the warming box with anti-slip bottom and leak-proof closure. The outer double insulation ensures that the container does not get hot from the outside and your child cannot scald himself.

All insulated bottles or thermos flasks and insulated containers from the company reer are made of food-safe 18/8 stainless steel. This steel stands for a particularly high degree of purity.
