Zojirushi Thermal food thermos can keep hot foods at safe temperatures for hours and won’t leak into your luggage, whether you’re bringing oats for breakfast or chili for lunch. We are certain that the Zojirushi Stainless Steel Food Jar is the best for most people after evaluating 22 food thermoses and testing 10. It is available in three sizes with a range of 12 to 25 ounces, has great heat retention, and is tough and simple to clean. For people who prefer smaller servings or to pack lunches for their children, the 10-ounce Thermos Funtainer Food Jar is a good choice.
One of the finest for keeping soup hot was the Zojirushi Thermal Stainless Steel Food Jar. It took the 12-ounce thermos six hours to cool tomato soup from 193 °F to 144 °F while maintaining a temperature above the safe-for-food mark (140 °F). The 17-ounce Stanley Classic and the Black and Blum Food Flask thermoses were the only ones to perform better (greater volumes of liquid take longer to cool) (which has an awkward strap around it).
We were happy to note that the Zojirushi thermos exceeded the estimate for liquids (it will also keep foods cold for 6 hours, but we didn’t test for this). Zojirushi claims that its thermos will keep foods at a safe temperature for roughly 6 hours.
You can frequently use the Zojirushi Thermal Stainless Steel Food Jar to carry my morning green smoothie to work. You can also use it to store oats, soup, chili, and other foods. It has endured numerous commutes and still keeps food at the proper temperature. The best insulated mugs and thermoses we’ve found are made by Zojirushi, whose travel mugs have been our top pick for more than three years.
The Zojirushi Thermal didn’t leak when held upside down or when being shook (though none of the thermoses we tested did). Unlike the bigger and more cumbersome Thermos Stainless King or the Stanley Classic, the screw-on cap is simple to put on and take off, and the thin container fits comfortably in one hand. Additionally resilient, the Zojirushi survived our drop test unharmed. The impact caused other metal jars to dent, and the IKEA thermos’ plastic lid broke. Additionally, the Zojirushi’s heat retention is backed by a five-year limited warranty.
The Zojirushi Thermal includes a four-piece, detachable lid that enables thorough cleaning of all its crevices. The single-piece lids on the majority of the other thermoses we evaluated, which had challenging-to-reach threads that appear to collect crud, were less appealing to us. You may lost a tiny rubber stopper that fits into the top of the lid after extensively trying this thermos.
Heat retention hasn’t been hindered by this, but occasionally food may leak into the thermos’s cap, thus you can make it a priority to unscrew the entire cover so I can thoroughly clean it. The Zojirushi Thermal has never leaked outside of the container itself, despite this little leak caused by the missing piece.
Despite Zojirushi’s advice to hand wash the thermos, we have also witnessed it withstand runs through the dishwasher without suffering any damage. We particularly appreciate the Zojirushi’s availability in a variety of sizes and colors, including 11.8-, 16.9-, and 25-ounce jars in pink, aqua blue, dark brown, cream, and stainless steel.
Although the Zojirushi’s multi-part lid is simple to clean, putting it back together again is a little more challenging. It requires work to keep track of the small four parts, and installing the rubber gasket is challenging. You will probably eat directly from the jar because the Zojirushi’s lid does not double as a cup, unlike some larger thermoses.
