Lovely thermos. Great design. My friends ask me about it and I'm happy to show it off. Worked very well.
This flask is a little different from other similar flasks on the market. Different in a positive way. The Tafu has a clear coat on the outside that seems to be very good at repelling and preventing greasy fingerprint marks. I had a Zojirushi which showed fingerprint marks like crazy on the outside. The inside is also very easy to clean. The inside is not non-stick teflon or similar but instead seems to be a highly polished stainless steel.. Whatever it is it seems to be easier to clean than normal stainless steel. The flask operates with one hand very easily which is very helpful when you are on the move. The flip has just the right amount of spring to it. It's very light in weight but tough looking at the same time and it does an incredible job of keeping things at temperature. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could but I can't so instead I give you this review.
This travel flask is COOL or HOT, depending on what you want to do with it. I've used many travel mugs in my lifetime and this is the best so far. Very little temperature loss from filling the flask before I go to work and when using it at lunch time. By mid afternoon the contents are still at a nice hot temperature. Even in the evening when I'm back at home the contents are not cold. Amazing when you think about it. Can't go wrong for the price.
It's amazing how far thermal insulated flasks have come along since the old days of 'Thermos'. Zojirushi have always been good with insulation mugs and this one seems to be exactly the same to those. I think the low price is definitely worth it. Nice design and very useful item.
What is the difference between this and the zojirushi tuff mug you may ask? The answer is - absolutely nothing except this is half the price. Same quality, same volume, same temperatures, same appearance. If anything I find that Tafu paint does not show the fingerprints as much as the Zojirushi. A bargain price of £19 that I think is amazing.
