Zojirushi Flip Open Drink Flask is the best Travel Flask in the world (Wirecutter, April 2018). It’s the original flask that opens one handed and has a hygienic top that dis-assembles for cleaning (we’re over drink bottles that trap gunk, and can’t be properly cleaned).
The flask’s Flip Top is fascinating in its thoroughness. It opens single handed with the press of a button, but does so in two quick stages to avoid condensation being flicked around. Clever.
They’re also very easy to hold because their technology keeps the double wall component to only 1mm thickness – making them thinner and easier to hold than comparable flasks.
Other Zojirushi features include a slide lock on the cap to prevent the flask leaking in bags, and a throat wide enough for regular sized ice blocks.
This hass a 600ml capacity – which is about two big mugs or two English teacups. It’s a double walled vacuum stainless steel flask, so the heat or cold within doesn’t transfer to your hand (or table surfaces)… nor sweat moisture in a bag, briefcase or backpack. The bottle has a mightily comfy plastic lip (yep, BPA and Phthalate free), and is narrow enough to fit nearly all cup holders.
The Good Store loves that Zojirushi under promises but over delivers on it’s hot/cold times – they only say six hours, but millions of Japanese know they keep hot or cold from dawn to dusk.
The Zojirushi company is Asia’s most famous manufacturer of vacuum flasks. They began in Japan in 1918, and now their lucky little elephant logo is world famous for quality.
