Excellent for the priceStephanieThe thing about this vacuum flask pitcher is that the pour stream is a little wonky. So, practice with it before pouring steaming hot coffee into your mother-in-law's cup while she's holding it.
Keeping items hot/cold - seems to do it's job quite well.
It's a good flask for keeping soup or hot chocolate warm because the lid is one solid piece and there are no combo lid-spouts to clean.
For the price of around $6, you can purchase a few and maybe designate them for specific items.5

Get THIS !!!AZALI M.I cannot believe it. This inexpensive, good looking flask actually does what it is supposed to do. Boiled water stays hot 12hrs and is still warm after 24hrs for me. I've yet to try it with cold liquids. Just get it.5

Thermos type carafeJUNEPerfect for when I have guests. I can store and keep hot the first pot of coffee while I make a second. I have a mini coffee maker. I also like the color and that it’s tall so doesn’t use much countertop space. Got it on sale too.5

BeholdVickiI bought it on last week. It is very useful for me to keep hot water last for 1 day. However, it’s modern style and nice colour.5

for $6, well worth it. love it so much, we bought a second one.5
Not What I ExpectedDONNAI thought I was buying a regular pitcher, but this only holds one quart of liquid and has glass inside that you have to be careful not to break. Good quality, but just not what I was looking for. I find IKEA descriptions to be a bit sparse and sometimes it's hard to know what you're actually buying. That said, I know I'll find a use for it and it was cheap.2
Thermal potPatriciaThis beautiful light green pot is not only stylish, it does a awesome job at keeping our coffee hot all day.5
Pretty color and nice size.DoloresPretty color and nice size. I love that it keeps things cold for a long time. I haven't tried it with a hot liquid. I was surprised for the price that the inside was glass!! You can't go wrong with this cute, versatile pitcher.5
Our take on plastic
Plastic is a key material for IKEA, and remains so going forward. It is strong, durable, lightweight and versatile. It is a main component in a large amount of our products and has a wide variety of applications from surface materials such as paint and foil, to screws and shelf pegs. There is a lot of valid concern regarding how plastic impacts the environment and at IKEA we take this very seriously. As part of our larger circular journey and transition from virgin fossil based material, we are working hard to change all plastic in our home furnishing products to plastic made from recycled and/or renewable raw materials.
Malin Ljungström, who was involved in developing the range, shares her insights. “To many, the smell of coffee and tea means well-being and a homey feeling. Since we want to improve people’s everyday, we’re offering products that make it possible for more to experience more feelgood moments at home.”
Developing things that make a difference
Malin and her colleagues dug deep into coffee and tea cultures to find out what tools people feel they can’t live without. They talked to specialists and investigated living, eating and drinking habits. “We wanted to develop items that make a difference, so we’ve focused on a few, but carefully selected products,” she states. The team cooperated with IKEA Test Lab in Älmhult, Sweden. It’s an IKEA version of a James Bond lab where prototypes are inspected and evaluated. “A couple of the things we checked were that the thermoses can keep fluids really warm for a long time. And that the glass mugs and glass pots are durable and comfortable, even though they look and feel light and airy,” says Malin.
For all tastes and different wallets
No matter how you enjoy your cup, you’ll find the things that put an extra flavor to your drink in the range. Another good thing is that there’s something for all wallets. “It’s one of our contributions to a better life at home. A way to improve people’s everyday one cup at a time,” concludes Malin.
Only recycled or renewable plastics
Plastic is most commonly derived from oil and gas, which are non-renewable fossil sources. These sources do not renew themselves and will eventually be depleted. Our ambition is that by 2030, all plastic used in our products will be based on renewable or recycled materials. Renewable plastic is made from materials such as vegetable oil, corn, wheat grain and sugar cane. Recycled plastic allows us to give a second life to non-biodegradable products such as PET bottles that would otherwise end up in landfill. Using recyclable sources also lessens our dependency on oil as a raw material. Currently more than 40% of our plastic products are based on recycled and renewable materials and our aim is to reach 100%. As we add products made from recycled and renewable materials to our offer, we hope to inspire other companies to do the same.
Phasing out single-use plastics
Single-use plastic items pollute ecosystems if not disposed of responsibly. As part of our commitment to people and the planet, all single-use plastic products from the global home furnishing range were phased out in 2020. This includes items such as plates, cups, and plastic straws offered in our restaurants, bistros, and cafes. These were replaced by disposables made from 100% renewable sources.
PET and PP our most commonly used plastics
Polythylene terephthalate (PET) and Polypropylene (PP) are durable, hygienic and shatter-resistant plastics. They absorb very little water and have good chemical resistance. Both PET and PP can be reused and recycled, which reduces waste and gives the product several lives through use and reuse. PET is the most recycled plastic in the world and can be used for many different purposes such as plastic bottles and containers for packaging food and beverages as well as for personal care products, pharmaceuticals and many other consumer products. At IKEA we mainly use recycled PET in boxes, filling material for textiles and kitchen front foil. PET is approved by health-agencies as safe to use for food and beverage. IKEA uses recycled PET that is post-consumer based, which means it is based on collected and sorted PET bottles.
Clean and safe
IKEA takes product safety very seriously and all products are tested and comply with the strictest possible laws and safety standards on all IKEA markets. Customers should always feel confident that products bought at IKEA are safe and healthy to use. IKEA wants to minimize or totally refrain from the use of chemicals and substances that can be harmful to people and the environment.
Together, we can do more
Our journey towards only using recycled or renewable plastic will take some time and require new ways of doing things, but we are determined to take responsibility and find new solutions. We want to give our customers the possibility to choose products made from more sustainable materials that can be recycled again one day. Together, we can make a big difference!
