Ⅴ. How to identify the performance of a stainless vacuum flask


1. The thermal insulation performance of stainless vacuum flask mainly refers to the inner of the vacuum flask.

After filling the bottle with boiled water, tighten the stopper or the lid of the vacuum flask clockwise. After about 2 to 3 minutes, touch the outside and lower part of the cup body with your hand. If you have  a warm feeling, it indicates that the thermal insulation performance is not good enough

3. If The accessories of stainless vacuum flask are healthy and environmentally friendly. Whether the plastic fittings of stainless vacuum flask is healthy environmental protection or not is very important. It can be identified by smell. If the thermos is made of food-grade plastic, it has a lighter smell,light surface, no burr, Long service life and not easy to aging;If it is ordinary plastic, it will be inferior to food grade plastic in every way.

4. The identification of stainless steel materials. The material quality is very important for stainless vacuum flask. The are many specifications of stainless steel material, among them 18/8 expresses composition of stainless steel material contains 18% chromium, contains 8% nickel. Only the material achieve this standard can be the  product of green environmental protection


Ⅵ. Matters needing attention when you use a stainless vacuum flask


1. The new stainless vacuum flask should be washed several times with boiled water or detergent and sterilized at high temperature before use, which can kill bacteria.

2. Before use, please preheat with boiled water for 5-10 minutes for better insulation effect.

3. Do not fill the cup with too much water, so as to avoid boiling water overflow and scalding when tightening the lid.

4. After drinking, please tighten the lid to ensure the stainless vacuum flask health and cleanliness.

5. Wash with a soft cloth and a food cleanser diluted with warm water.

6. The inside of stainless vacuum flask can produce a few red rust spot sometimes. You can use warm water and dilute vinegar to soak 30 minutes, sufficient clean.

7. To prevent odor or stains, and in order to be used for a long time cleanly, wash and dry thoroughly after use.
