71 Otterbottle Review and GIVEAWAY! - CLOSED

I love my Otterbottle so when I was contacted to review one of their new products I jumped at the chance. With the weather getting cold I decided to try out the Insulated Food Container. I used it for soup a few times and then also for chili. I would heat it up (not in the container) in the morning and then pour it into the container. As with any container like this it is going to slowly cool throughout the day so by lunch time it was still warm but not piping hot. The second time I used it I made sure to heat it hotter than I normally would. This did the trick! At lunch time my soup was the perfect eating temperature.

What do I like about it? Well before I would bring leftovers to work in old plastic containers. Now I don't have to do that. I like that I can use it for camping or hiking and still be able to have a hot meal.  I love that it is made from stainless steel and the plastic top is BPA free. Plus hello it is really stylish ::flips hair::

What do I wish was different? The size. It was a bit small for me (350ml). I think that if I was bringing a sandwich to go along with my soup it would have been fine but I was just having the soup and felt like I was not getting as much as I would like. I think it is the perfect size for a kid or for a hearty meal like stew or chili.
