This is our first year/time using a thermos for our child. The previous daycare either warmed up the meals or served warm food for lunch. So, after reading a few reviews about what brands and sizes are available in the market, I bought this one. And so far, I am happy with its performance. Does it stay hot or not? Our winters are mild (there is the occasional snow), but they are not extreme as up in the north of the country. Also, our child just started school and goes to before care, and so does not spend any time outside before school. Having said this, i heat up the meals around 7.30am and they stay warm up to lunch time (12.30pm). I bought 2 of them, the other one I use to put his salad or desert. A yogurt with frozen fruits will be fresh by lunch time. Thermos size: width and height are just right. It is wide enough to scoop the meal out with a spoon without much trouble. Personally, I would like it to be 1/2 inch wider, same height. Portion size: the 10oz is perfect for small kids, a pre-teen/teen and adult would probably need a bigger one to have a nice-filling meal. The look: this is perfect for all batman lovers. After 1 month of daily use, the colors are still good. I wash them with a soft sponge. They can be washed in a dishwasher, but i prefer not to. The lid can sometimes get a bit dirty and not easy to clean the deep borders, to reach use craft/chenille pipe cleaners. I recommend this brand.
