    Quick test of 5 hrs with 4 different pre warmed flasks; Thermos 500 ml ( buttons), Chilly 500ml , Aladdin (stout + buttons ) 1 l. and J.lewis 1l. (normal no buttons) found John Lewis winner by 12% heat advantage at 88 deg c. vs c. 77 deg.c. from others upon opening.
    So it's volume and simple standard no button that keeps stuff warmer longer!

    I take it you preheat your flask with boiling water prior to adding the contents?
    Westie is correct. The secret is to preheat the flask with boiling water. Always works!
