Perfect for school or office, the removable stainless steel container lets you safely heat your food without the use of a microwave. Outer shell is made from environmentally friendly and nontoxic food grade material.

Okay, this thermos can apparently do. it. all. Seriously. It’s also a tea infuser (comes with tea-leaf strainer), it’s also double-wall insulated for hot coffee, tea, or soup or for cold fruit. Comes in different colors and sizes, too. I bet this Cherry Vanilla Protein Smoothie would go great in this thermos!
