When choosing your Thermos® Food Jar, there are some factors to consider, such as: 

  • Who is the intended user of the Food Jar? 
    For instance, baby's porridge at infant care, office lunch, dinner for child who needs to do class runs, meals on-the-go during travel, quick meal during busy days etc.
  • What are we using the Food Jar for?
    For example, cooking on-the-go, hot food storage, cold food storage etc. 
  • How long do we need the food to be in the Food Jar? 
    For example, 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, 6 hours, 8 hours etc.
