Let Me Ask

Are you the type who can stand the freezing rain, winds, snow and ice? Great. I wish I had your traits, but sadly, I do not. On one of those harsh winter days, I have to have my Stanley Classic Vacuum Thermos because it is so versatile that it can keep hot coffee, soups, hot just like they came off of my stove. Or if I want to fill my Stanley Classic Vacuum Thermos with iced tea and hit the road, my Stanley Thermos can handle it. And I emphasize, handle it for hours, not just for half a hour like those bargain basement thermos bottles that go for $3.00 and people are suckered by this low price never thinking that they might be getting had. People are like that.

I used to be like that and no, I am not the wisest man living, but I have been burned enough by those so-called “great buys,” to do me a lifetime. At my age, I have found out that a product, even if does cost a little more, is well worth it. How do I know this? By doing some research to find out how the product was produced and what company did the manufacturing and how long has the company been in business. Key questions, that I have asked myself and they have served me well . . .so with the Stanley Classic Vacuum Thermos. Stanley means Tough. And endurance. Those are the words that I can understand.

It’s not a position of being odd, or strange simply because I hold to a strict mindset of asking what is what before I conduct any business. I got this from my dad, who had a special sense about buying or selling things and he might add, why are you (the seller) asking that much for the lawnmower, when I can go to town and get it for $40.00 less? Of course the seller was offended, but my dad also taught me that feelings will not feed the stomach. But these lessons are not just about my dad and me, it is simply on such an affordable presentation when I read the Stanley Classic Thermos Bottle because I knew from the homework that the price was just right. And the product will last for many years.

A Brief Timeline

From Early Years of Stanley Thermos:

In 1913 William Stanley Jr. created the Stanley bottle as a result of his work with transformers, during which he discovered that a welding process he was using could be used to insulate a vacuum bottle with steel instead of glass.

By 1915 William Stanley began mass production of the Stanley bottle. He acquired an empty building, renovated and equipped it with machinery for production of insulated jugs, beverage servers, and desk top decanters.

In 1921, Landers, Frary & Clark (L.F&C) of New Britain, Connecticut purchased Stanley Insulating Company and added the Stanley line to their appliance and hardware lines.
