On the go and wanting to quench your thirst? What better than swigging a hot cup of coffee poured out of your flask?

An unsung hero, the flask has long been considered a must have accessory for a gentleman.
These days the drinking flash for carrying hooch has given way to the thermos flask in cool designs. The thermos or vacum flask is a container having thermal insulation by interposing a partial vacuum between the contents and the ambient environment. The evacuated region of the partial vacuum removes material that could serve as a heat conductor or carrier, enabling the flask to keep its contents hotter or cooler than its surroundings.
Invented by Scottish physicist and chemist Sir James Dewar in 1892 this was referred to as a Dewar flask before it became known as Thermos after a German company Thermos Gmbh manufactured it commercially. Now thermos has become the generic name for all vaccum flasks. Handy for storing hot brew or iced beverage the flask is a staple in any working professional’s tiffin accessories along with the lunch box. A typical domestic vacuum flask will keep liquid cool for about 24 hours, and warm for up to 8. Some vacuum flasks include a fitted cup or two, for convenience of use with drinks, especially during traveling or family picnic. All designed and combined in one.
