why the hole & rubber plug?”
This was a flask that I was pleased with as it did the job it was designed for: kept (soya) milk cold. However there is a teeny hole in the inside of the lid and a rubber plug, which has fallen out - I either drank it! or it went down the drain whilst being washed (by hand). The hole, which the milk now escapes through, leads to an empty chamber with a screw on silver cap which does not have a leak proof seal. I am at a loss to understand the necessity for the hole & therefore the minute plug, especially when it's loss fundamentally alters the flasks good design. Disappointing.

Useful but could pour better”
I use this little flask for taking my milk up at night in readiness for my morning tea. It holds just the right amount though I little on the expensive side for this purpose. I would give it five stars if it didn't dribble. I have other flasks that pour beautifully so this needs looking at and I could do away with the dishcloth.

little vacuum flask”
I've used these daily for years and love them but wish I could replace lids which perish before the flask does. Could these be replaced? I always have 3 on the go.

This is a very useful little flask. We bought it 4 years ago for an elderly relative and the seal only recently perished. We thought we'd need to buy another flask but Lakeland customer services sent us a replacement seal free of charge. Excellent, prompt and polite service - faultless!

This flask is the ideal size for picnics to accompany our large flask of boiling water, however it is a terrible pourer. We always need to have a tissue to mop up all the milk that runs down the side. Very irritating!! Needs redesigning.

I bought this a few years ago but only got round to using it for the first time yesterday. It was perfect for my milk, and it was in my rucksack lying down in a coach and I panicked that it might leak, but it never, and was even commented on! I can't remember it being £16.99 though!! but as I wasn't sure if it could go in the dishwasher I just rinsed it out with some washing up liquid to make sure I didn't end up with sour milk!! Highly recommend :-)

This is a great little flask, perfect size and ideal for our guestroom beverage tray rather than give our guests the UHT milk portions. They are best washed and dried then keep them in the fridge without the lids on so they are cooled ready to put cold milk in. The milk stays fresh & cold until morning. It would be better if the flask was designed to be dishwasher proof. Excellent product but a little expensive at nearly £17 each.

The flask works better if chilled for five minutes before use with cold water or better still, placed in the fridge. When empty just wash carefully with washing up liquid paying attention to the cap seal and opening to the flask. If by mistake any remaining milk is left in the the flask and happens to ‘go off’, clean the flask internal surface thoroughly with a brush (and maybe some bi-carbonate of soda) with particular attention paid to the cap seal (maybe remove) using a mild abrasive cleaner, rinse the flask and cap and place both in the fridge (unassembled) for five minutes before refilling and all should be well

Just the job”
by Sarah Clifford
This flask is perfect. A bit more money than I wanted to spend, but I'm pleased with it, just the job for taking milk to work for my hot drinks. Thank you.

Good, but limited”
by Miss Hein
Bought this flask few years ago, used it regularly for milk on the go. Recently switched baby to bottled milk and started using this flask to keep a small amount of boiled water with me so I could slightly warm her powdered milk without having to hunt for a microwave. The water cools down very quickly, but also the flask has developed a dent in it where the flask is very hot to touch on first filling. I thought it got bashed in my bag, but dent is getting worse. I came on here to get a replacement, and now see that the description has been amended. Perhaps time to source a hot mini flask?

Indispensible milk bottle”
by Mr Andrew Lovell
I use my thermos at least once a week. The body is washed in the dishwasher. The cap has to be taken to pieces to clean it properly, or it smells. Couldn't be without it!

I bought this flask because it seemed ideal for one cup of strong Americano coffee to keep me awake when driving home in the late afternoon. In the morning I filled the flask with boiling water and let it stand a few minutes, then emptied it and added the freshly brewed coffee. I noticed with alarm that heat had already been conducted to the outer casing. In the afternoon the coffee was stone cold. I'll take this back to the shop for a refund, but please amend the description to warn future customers that this flask might be suitable for cold milk but not for hot coffee.

Perfect for a teasmade”
by Mrs Hope
Having hunted high and low to solve the age old problem of where to put the milk for a teasmade, I looked everywhere for a small flask. This is the tiniest flask on the market and is absolutely perfect for milk. If you run the cold tap inside the flask for a couple of minutes before adding the milk from fridge then the milk is still cold in the morning. There is 200ml in the flask, which is probably enough for about 4 cups of tea.

Great little flask. Just found out that you can store tea bags / sugar in lid. Didn't mention this on packaging etc

not suitable for hot food”
Ideal size for sending soup for a lunch, but in spite of prewarming and making sure soup is piping when preparing, it is too cold to enjoy within 5 hours

Great for kid's school milk break”
by Meriel Aspinall
My daughter is lactose intolerant and uses this great little flask to take her Lactofree milk to school for milk break. She loves it because it means she doesn't feel left out when all her friends have theirs. It's particularly good on hot days because we know the milk will still be fresh at break time. Another bonus is that because of the wide neck it's really easy to clean (very important when it's used for milk every day!). It has lasted really well, being used 5 days a week for the last 2 years but the seal has now perished & fallen apart as other customers have said. I hate waste & would love to be able to purchase a new seal so that I could keep using what is otherwise a hardy little flask.

Excellent flask, whilst the seal last”
I bought this little flask about 2 years ago and it has been very well used. Its an ideal size to carry just the right amount of milk to work each day for my tea and lunch break. It keeps the milk fresh without fail. However, the lid ring seal has perished and the flask now leaks. Like the other reviewer, I would also be very glad to purchase a new ring seal for the lid from the manufacturer,- as the flask itself is still perfect.

A note from the team: Thanks for your review. We'll pass your suggestion on about the replacement seals.
I bought this flask as a container for milk for picnics. The first one I purchased leaked as the finish of the rim was uneven. A replacement was supplied and this one is OK, but it dribbles when pouring and the lid is not easy to clean. I did not realise there is a seal that can be removed until I found an accumulation of stale milk inside it. No instructions for cleaning were provided. I do still use the flask although cleaning is fiddly. A good idea but poor design.

A fantastic little flask - just right for milk with the teasmade! However the seal on the lid has perished over the months. It would be great just to be able to replace the lid as there is nothing wrong with the flask itself.

Bought this flask approximately 2 years ago which has been used monday to friday. Initially it didn't leak, and kept liquid cold. However the little seal inside the top of the lid started to perish, and now the flask is no longer useable as it leaks. Reluctant to purchase another one incase it has the same problem.
