The Humble Tim Horton's Thermos

I was in need of a new thermos; ideally one that was around 700ml and reasonably light and well insulated. Turns out that Tim Hortons sells a 725ml thermos brand Stainless Steel Thermos for 15.95.
I did a little test on this bad boy by pre-heating the bottle then filling it with boiling water, then I stuck it in the fridge for 8.5 hrs to see how well it insulated.
The water temp at this point was still 70c, so it definitely keeps in the heat quite nicely.
For 16 bucks and a free coffee fill it's a good buy if you are in need of a thermos.

I'll drink to that! [^]


Does it have a regular top/cap or one of those "cute" dimple ones that can dispense liquid w/o opening the entire bottle ?

I always have time for Tim Horton's!
Good hockey player to.
What is with the time limit for hanging out there!
Can you get all you can eat Tim bits instead of the coffe fill?
I have to have a look at this thermos!

The Tim Horton's travel mug is also a great find. It sells for $4 and includes a free coffee. It keeps coffee warm for a long time. You can get it refilled, it is a little more than an xl, for the price of a l. You should ask for the l price because some people, who don't know, will charge you for an xl.

I bought a couple of them hot mugs, they are great for travelling, and they told me it was the price of an XL for refill (plus comes full).

I wonder how many extra large coffee this thermos holds, Im drinking an extra large tims now and it doesn't show how many ml's the cup holds.

Also what else is interesting is you can download all the Tim Hortons Locations to your GPS, for easy navigation

If you have an ipod touch or an iphone, you can type "tim hortons" into the search box on your map application (google maps) and it will mark every tims in your vicinity (you can also type in gas station, pub, grocery store, pharmacy, etc). It's really cool and quite handy.

The Tim's thermos sounds like a good deal, I think I'll stop there tomorrow and pick on up.

They said it was an XL and a small or so combined. It's 725ml so it's basically a 24oz thermos.

My only recommendation is not to go crazy with a thermos filled Tim Horton's coffee when you got a long drive with no facilities available on the way up.... What is it about those Tim Horton coffees, we'll never know. Hopefully this wasn't too lewd! But a friendly warning.
