What was the initial temperature of the food when you placed them in? What's the ambient temperature? What temperature is 'not warm'?

(I understand no one carries a thermometer with their food...but some quantifiable measurements would be useful).

it is usually steaming hot lasagne/pasta placed into the kids backpack at 815AM. By lunch time, it's cold (they complain when they get home "why is my lunch not warm?").

We usually boil hot water in a kettle, pour it into the thermos and let it sit for a minute, pour the water out, wipe the inside down, then put the hot food into the thermos. Might want to give this a try if you haven't already

Purchased this about two years ago. It works well. Keeps things hot enough. My wife makes overnight oats and it's still warm in the morning. It's not hot by any means but that's hours.

I purchased it dec 17 2017 for $9.99, so not sure this is a hot deal, but also aware we don't have time machines. Just letting you know this isn't the best price that this can be had.

Also the pink one lists for $18.99 regular and is also on sale for $14.97.

My kids are the opposite. They complain the pasta is too hot and that’s why they did not eat their lunch yesterday lol

Is 10oz big enough if I have a 5 year old starting school this year? It doesn't look too big in the pics. But looking for fruit/pasta etc..

I like the screw top which prevents leaking even if there's liquid inside.
10 oz is way too small for me though. I'm interested in something which can holds 30+ ounces.

I have a thermos brand "food jar" that isn't branded for kids but does keep the food warm after 3 hours. It has an insulating cap with built in folding spoon and another cap on top of that. Maybe you can try that one.

Boil/microwave some water and pour it in to container for a few min and then drain and add hot food you are putting in for lunch. Should last until lunch time

I second this comment. I've had the same adult version one for over 10 years now and it's still going strong. I used to pack hot food in this before going on a overnight bus ride trip for snowboarding so I have warm food to eat for breakfast :)
