I wanted to get into a reliable insulation bucket for a long time. After checking a lot of information on the Internet, I found that those insulation barrels that sold six or seven hundred yuan can also be kept warm for several hours, and the effect is not much more than ordinary goods. But I always feel that you get what you pay for, it should still be more expensive to keep warm. However, there was no activity, and I hastily placed an order for fear of being pitted, so I waited silently for the opportunity to come.

A few days ago, Jingdong engaged in activities, Taifu high full 300 minus 120, seeing that the price was good, he entered a T-0050 insulation barrel. Anyway, it is a good price, in case the insulation effect is not ideal, it is not distressed.

The product specifications of the T-0050 on JD.com are written like this:

Capacity: 2L

Dish container capacity: 0.35L

Rice container capacity: 0.57L (about 2 and a half small bowls of rice)

Soup container capacity: 0.57L

Heat preservation effect: the temperature ≥ 62°C after 6 hours

Body: 18-8 stainless steel, resin spray painting

Cover: PP resin

Container lid: PP resin (heat resistant temperature 120°C, cold resistant temperature -20°C)

Contents: 18-8 stainless steel

Sealing ring: silicone (heat resistant temperature 220 °C, cold temperature -20 °C)

Chopstick box: ABS resin (heat-resistant temperature 80°C, cold-resistant temperature -30°C)

Chopsticks: AS resin (heat resistant temperature 80°C, cold temperature -20°C)

The product description of the T-0050 on JD says this:

So whether the inner container is 18-8 steel or 904 steel, I can’t be sure… I still believe what is advertised in the picture, it is 904 steel.

1. Unboxing

The 2L marked on the outer packaging refers to the capacity of the insulation barrel, not the capacity of the inner container. In fact, the inner container is a 0.35L vegetable box, a 0.57L lunch box, and a 0.57L soup box. In other words, it can actually only hold 1.49L meals.

Included thermal bucket backpack. Don’t underestimate this poorly made backpack, it is the key to heat preservation, I will introduce it later.

There is a pocket on the left side that can be used for tableware such as spoons.

The storage net on the right can be used to store the kettle. I tried it and I can put a kettle with a capacity of about 500ml. Too big to fit.

This backpack is lined with aluminum foil, which is said to greatly improve the insulation effect.

Next is the body of the insulation barrel.

A chopstick box included.

The lid is snap-on to ensure a seal and easy to open.

At the top is the vegetable box. There is a paragraph on the lid in Japanese that I don’t understand, which probably means that you can’t just throw the insulation bucket into the microwave to heat it.

After removing the box, there is a heat shield. It is said to increase the seal, prevent heat loss, and improve the heat preservation effect of lunch boxes and soup boxes.

There is a small handle on the heat shield, which is easy to take out of the insulation bucket.

After removing the heat shield, there is a lunch box, and there is also a small handle on the lid.

Further down is the soup box. In fact, the soup box and the lunch box are the same, and the capacity is 0.57L.

Take away the soup box and you’ll see the bottom.

The three inner vessels are designed to hold one for dishes, one for rice, and one for soup. The box for the dishes is the smallest and not enough, and I usually use the soup box to fill the dishes.

There is a white rubber pad on the lid, and when the lid cannot be unscrewed, the rubber pad can be pressed down to allow air to enter the inside of the container and it can be opened.

I think the quality of this steel is okay, but I don’t feel as good as the steel of the thermos thermos flask I used.

Chopsticks included. The material is AS resin, I feel uneasy, I didn’t dare to use it.

There are many “protrusions” on the head of chopsticks that can help better hold food.

Family bucket.

2. Actual measurement

According to the product description, the order in which the inner container is placed, the use of heat shields to ensure sealing, and the storage of the backpack will all have an impact on the insulation effect.

I followed the recommendations in the product description and tested it twice.

For the first test, no thermal bucket backpack was used

Test steps:

1. Boil a pot of boiling water, pour the boiling water into the insulation bucket, about 1/3 full. Then close the lid of the insulation bucket and drain the boiling water after a minute.

2. Pour boiling water into the soup box, lunch box and vegetable box respectively, fill them all and put them in the insulation bucket.

3. Put the insulation bucket into the refrigerator room, put it in at 21 o’clock in the evening, and take it out at 5 o’clock the next morning, for a total of 8 hours.

Test method: Sorry, there is no thermometer at home, so I have to feel it with a few different fingers.

Test results: The water in the top dish box is ice-cold, the water in the lunch box under the heat shield is cold, and the water in the bottom soup box is a little warm.

I was very disappointed and disappointed, and I wanted to return it.

For the second test, use a thermal bucket backpack

3. Load the insulation bucket into the backpack.

4. Put the insulation bucket into the refrigerator room, put it in at 22 o’clock in the evening, and take it out at 6 o’clock the next morning, for a total of 8 hours.

Test method: Same as above

Test results: The water in the top dish box is warm, the water in the lunch box under the heat shield is hot, and the water in the bottom soup box is actually hot!

The backpack of this thermal bucket is simply black technology, and the gap between use and use is too big, completely exceeding my expectations for it!

3. Experience

1. If you want to keep warm for a long time, please be sure to use a thermal bucket backpack.

2. The food in the top container cools the fastest, and the bottom container cools the slowest. It is recommended to put the dishes at the bottom, rice in the middle, and side dishes or cold dishes at the top.

3. Pour the insulation bucket and container with boiling water, preheat for one minute, the insulation effect will be better.

4. The small rubber pad on the lid of the container is easy to fall off, it is recommended to remove it first when brushing, otherwise it is easy to wash it like me when cleaning.

5. I don’t use many insulation barrel products, only Avanti’s and Taifugao. If these two products are compared, I recommend Taifugo.
