I am happy with this thermos, but I really wish it had a handle. I bought it to take back and forth to work, and I'm always afraid I'm going to drop it enroute. This thermos keeps coffee hot, and looks good, so it does what it's suppose to, but I find I don't use it as much because of not wanting to drop it.

- How accurate was the on site description of the product? Description was accurate, but as I recall, did not identify capacity of thermos.
Quality thermos compares to the big name brands at a fair cost. We use it as a carafe to hold coffee hot and not cook it on the warmer. Would be fine for travel but has no handle and the cup doesn't sit flat, domed slightly on top.

I bought this for my brother who works in construction in COLD Illinois. He loves it. He tells me every day how great it is. He makes coffee in the Bunn Coffeemaker (purchased from Overstock.com) and fills his thermos. He said it keeps the coffee hot all day and it's a welcome break when he's cold.
This is larger than expected, more than 12" high (perhaps 15"...I didn't measure). But it seems well made and it's a good weight for its size. I tested it for leakage and it didn't leak. I like the twist down stopper with a pop-up button for easy pouring. Be sure to tilt the thermos after you close the pop-up button because a tiny residual liquid does remain...but that's it. These arrived extremely fast!
