Stop for lunch and enjoy a hot meal out of Stanley's Classic 17oz Food Jar.

There's nothing like eating piping hot soup for lunch on your winter snowshoeing or hiking adventure, which is why Stanley made the 17-ounce Classic Food Jar. The double-wall, stainless steel construction provides long-lasting insulation, the lid doubles as a cup, and the wide mouth makes it easy to clean this Stanley food thermos. If you're looking to keep that chilly extra hot, fill the Classic Jar with hot water before pouring your lunch in.

Just Perfect!

  • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I got this for my sister who is a huge skier. It's amazing she fills it with hot tomato soup before heading to the mountain and whether she takes a lunch break or it's a powder day and she gets by with a Cliff Bar until the lifts close her soup is ALWAYS steaming when she twists open the lid. I would definitely suggest investing in this product, it's really top of the line and never leaks. I actually want to buy one for myself now!!!



  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

While moving my Newfoundland dog across the country, I needed a storage container to keep her meals cold for our 15-hour car ride (she eats chicken, kibble, and veggies). It was extremely important to me that her chicken didn't spoil while traveling, so I got the Stanley Food Jar and couldn't have been happier. To be safe, I kept the chicken in this jar, in a cooler, on ice and I had no hesitation in trusting that it did the job, and that my dog would be just fine eating her meals. Paired with the cooler & ice, the chicken stayed colder in this jar than it would have been just in the fridge at home. In fact, it stayed very cold for over 18 hours, well after all the ice melted in the cooler.

Nowadays, after a couple hand-washes (don't put it in the dishwasher!), we've used it for a few different hot foods and now we primarily use it for our pour-over coffee container. It definitely keeps the coffee very hot for about 4-5 hours, and then it stays warm for probably 4-5 more. For maximum performance, be sure to keep both the lid and the top cup firmly tightened, and don't store it on a cold surface (like a granite counter top or cold metal locker) if you're trying to keep its contents very hot.

The only things I've noticed after the 8 months I've had it is that the inner lid seems to not get quite as tight anymore, it squeaks a bit when I screw it on (not a big deal), and the plastic ring that makes the jar airtight will probably need to be changed out at some point because it seems like it is getting just a tad bit brittle. This wouldn't be the best jar to take backpacking as it is quite heavy, but it would be quite good for car camping or transporting meals or beverages to work or school.

After 8 months of ~4-day/week use, it still looks and, generally, performs like it did the day I bought it. I plan on keeping this thing forever.


Don't so hot.

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used this once to bring soup to work. I heated up my soup to the boiling stage on the stove, poured it right in there. After 4 hours, the soup was warm, not hot as I expected. I've found other food jars that weight lighter and does a better job keeping the food hot. Not sure if I'll use this as often as I plan to.


Wont regret this one

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Buy it I promise you will dig it! Just do like you it says and put hot water in first and you will never be without a hot meal


Very Durable

    I use this in the winter on cold days. I will typically fill it up at 6am and open it at noon. The food inside is always hot. The tip about priming with hot water before adding food definitely extends warmth time.


    Hot meal jealousy

    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    We tried this out for this first time over the weekend on a yurt scouting trip. It never got above 35 or so degrees for the entire hike in, and after about 6 hours total, the soup contained in Stanley was still piping hot. It totally made our hiking buddies jealous (all they brought was leftover Halloween candy).


    Great for traveling

      I brought one of these to Hawaii for hauling food around while we were at the beach. We drove up to Hawi in the morning and got ice cream for later in the day. Everyone was telling us "You have got to try the ice cream up there." I forgot about it being in the soft cooler and pulled it out that night in our room. It was still ice cream. I was amazed it lasted that long.

      I definitely think these are a great vacuum jar for heading out and wanting to keep your food hot or keeping it cold.


      Love it!

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      This jar gets my wife through the winter. We use it mostly for tea, and occasionally for soup. The lid works well both as a cup and bowl. Obviously, it keeps things very hot. The only downside is that it won't *quite* fit a beer can inside, but c'est la vie.

      We've been using it nonstop this winter and there's no sign of wear.

      Write your question here...Hi ,anybody...

      Write your question here...Hi ,anybody know about how long this product will keep food hot,need to keep my daughters food hot for school from about 6am till about 12.30.Mike.

      I have the larger version and they claim 12-15 hours. I think this would work fine. My coffee one kept it hot from 12:30-9:00 that's when I ran out of coffee (sad moment).

      Absolutely WILL keep it hot. Just make sure to put hot water in first and let it sit for a few minutes then pour out and put whatever it is you want in and will stay hot for a full 12 hour work day


      A good product.

        I used it to cook/soak oatmeal over night and 8+ hours later it was still steaming. A simple, solid, unit. I tested it against a Nissan and Borders thermos and the Stanley was obviously warmer after 8 and 12 hours.

        A food thermos to keep hot food just during 3 mounths, but when i bought that thermos I thinked that life time garanty

        Is it leak-proof?
