Grabbed this one mainly because it was pretty. :) It does keep things hot for a few hours. Not nearly as long as the Ikea thermos but you can’t drink directly from the Ikea thermos like you can from this one. I got the one with the sip top. It isn’t very watertight either so don’t just throw it in a tote bag and hope it stays upright. :) Overall I’m happy with it and it will see a lot of use on road trips.
