Does anyone live their food jar/thermos?

iheartcooking | Oct 20, 2011 08:20 PM

I'm shopping for a good food thermos for my husband and I to take lunch to work. For me, the microwave at wok barely works and I hate eating in the break room anyhow. For the kids, there's no micro. For my husband, well he works at an amusement park and it can be hard to get to a microwave.
The kids use ten ounce thermos jars and I want something in the 15-20 ounce range for my husband and me. I can see that they're worth the price, but for such a high cost I want to make sure I get one that has a wide enough mouth, stays pretty hot, and doesn't leak.
So far it looks like I'm going to get either a Stanley or Thermos. Does anyone use these on a regular basis? What do you like about it?

Bonus question: what do you take in your thermos and what foods seem to stay hot?
