FAQ For Thermal Containers

How long do thermal containers keep food warm?

Thermal containers keep food warm for about 8-12 hours. As a rule, keep cool is always twice too high. Thus, high-quality containers keep warm up to 12 hours and cold up to 24 hours.

How does a thermal container work?

Most thermal containers consist of a double wall (Dewar vessel). Between the two walls is a vacuum, which ensures that the internal and external temperatures do not equalize. The temperature conduction is thus interrupted. In addition, the closure is airtight. Due to a silver layer on the inner wall, the temperature of the content is reflected: somier content warms/cools itself.

What is available for thermal containers?

Almost every container is also available as a thermal variant, for example: thermos bottles, thermo mugs, thermo jugs, coffee-to-go mugs, pump jugs, outdoor thermo jugs, thermo bowls, etc.

How to clean thermo mugs?

If the container is not dishwasher safe, you can use vinegar to clean it. You can soak warm water and vinegar in the container and then wash it off. Salt also cleans thoroughly and reliably. For this, dissolve 2 tablespoons in hot water, let it soak and rinse.
