Save some dollars with your sense.

The makers of the Hydro Flask 17oz Food Flask did the math and realized that the average chairlift ride from base to top takes about the same amount of time to complete as eating 17-ounces of home-made chili. And since the lodge below is selling crappy factory-made chilly for $13 a cup, well, doesn't it make sense to bring your own, save some cash, avoid the crowds, and spend your 'lunch break' skiing, instead?

Trust Science!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I wrote a review two days ago, that I have since deleted, where I trashed this food flask because I felt it did a poor job of keeping things warm compared to my 18 oz hydroflask that I use as my commuter mug - which I absolutely love. Upon further thought, something didn't seem right to me. They appear to be similarly manufactured and the food flask has a lower surface to volume ratio than my 18 oz flask, so it should actually insulate BETTER. What gives? So I did an experiment. After preheating both the 17 oz food flask and my 18 oz hydroflask, I filled them with boiling water, put on the lid, and ran up a mountain and meditated. 5 hours later I came down and measured the temperature. Lo and behold, the food flask registered a HIGHER temperature than my beloved hydroflask mug. So what's the deal? I can only figure that I don't heat my left over beef stew to the same high and uniform temperature as my pipin' hot coffee. I just had to believe the science and accept the fact that my original poor impression was based on ignorance. So now my revised review:
This is a good product if you want a warm lunch, whether it be half way through an epic ski tour or on a boring drive across the southern part of some un-mentioned state. But make sure you heat that potential lunch thoroughly and to a good temp. The flask is also really sturdy and will hold up to most abuse you can give it in the course of an awesome day. I doubt it is bullet proof or bomb proof, but if you send me a free sample I will joyfully perform another experiment.

Good Product!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this 17oz. Food Flask almost daily. I store my leftover oatmeal in it for a mid-morning snack and the food stays warm for about 3 hours. I would recommend it!

I'm so dis appointed in the food flask it does not keep the food hot. I thought it would be like the hydro flask that keeps the water cold all day. Just disappointed

It doesnt keep food hot for 3 or 4 hours. But I love the hydro flask. It keeps drinks cold all day 5 stars to that. But the food one is horrible you gotta do something about that. A concerned customer

I thought I had the same experience as you and originally wrote a similar review. But in the end curiosity go the better of me and when I did a controlled test, the food flask performed fine. See my revised review above.
