I travel some in the winter in the midwest and have not in the past few years been able to find a thermos that would keep anything hot in the winter. does anyone recommend one? I hate to keep buying themos's and find out they don't work. thanks

I use the LL Bean Vacuum bottle Found here. It is stainless steel and pretty indestructible.
i have an (20?) yr old nissan stainless steel lined thermos (similar to the one mentioned earlier in the thread) and it still works great.
personally i don't like ones with handles on the outside. they're more awkward than they are worth
Stanley makes great insulated beverage/food containers. With any of the products/brands they work much better if you pre-heat or pre-cool them.
For instance, our Stanley will keep hot tea very hot (too hot for me to drink) for 12 hours or more. Here's the drill: I pre-heat the container with hot water, dump out the water (or use it to make oatmeal or something), then fill the container with the freshly brewed, piping hot tea.
I suspect the same thing works for other brands.
