You’ve probably seen a lunchbox like the Stanley Classic in a 1950’s TV show. It’s a classic, and for good reason: made of steel, it’s incredibly durable and will last for generations. It also has a hefty 10-quart capacity, which can store all sorts of sandwiches and snacks.
“This is the best lunch box I have ever owned, and I've used one for over 45 years,” wrote a five-star reviewer on Amazon. “It's strong and durable and very roomy. It doesn't flop open at every move I make, the latches on the lid are built like a battleship hatch. My wife got me this for Christmas — most useful gift I've had in a while. I recommend it to anyone who has to go on rough locations to do their job.”
This BPA-free Stanley bottle is the perfect compliment for the classic lunchbox. The retro-looking stainless steel cutie is leakproof and holds 2 quarts of your favorite beverage. Vacuum-insulated, it can keep hot drinks steamy for up to 32 hours and cold drinks iced for up to 160 hours. (Whoa.) It also comes with an 8-ounce lid that doubles as a cup.
"Perfect, just perfect," said a happy customer. "Just by looking at it and holding it in ones hands can they actually believe the capability of these bottles. Extremely thick gauge steel, thick vacuum gap, screw-on top, nice cup/protector that covers the top, awesome 50s green primer/paint finish, just PERFECT. Bottles aren't rocket science but... Stanley prob had quite a few considering the Space Age era in which these products were conceived. Still shows after all these years."
The Stanley Unisex Green French Press Mug is made of sturdy stainless steel, and has an easy-to-clean filter and double-wall vacuum insulated design that keeps coffee hot for up to four hours. Coffee lovers rejoice: The great outdoors just got greater.
"I drink 'rot-gut' coffee that can take stains out of pavement. This press made me feel like I went to a bistro to get my morning joe," a five-star fan said. "It really is that good, and it keeps the remaining coffee pretty warm so you don't need to feel rushed. I've had multiple coffee apparatuses in the past that always feel a bit flimsy. This thing is a tank. You can just feel the durability in your hands. It's also very easy to clean, and that's important for not winding up with gritty grounds in your coffee."
If pour-over java is more your style, the Stanley Camp Pour-Over Set is your new best friend. Its stainless steel filter is more eco-friendly than the disposable ones and you'll even get a Stanley mug for sipping out of.
"I use this thing constantly when I travel," wrote a satisfied customer. "It’s very easy to use and clean. And if you have a bigger container (jar, large cup, etc.) you can brew a whole pot of coffee with it. Fantastic for people that don’t like the filter pack coffeemakers at a lot of hotels. Just warm up water in the microwave, pour into the filter and in a couple minutes you have a great cup of coffee."
Just because you're roughing it doesn't mean you should be subjected to cold food. Luckily, the Stanley Classic Vacuum Insulated Food Jar has double walls to keep your grub hot for hours at a time. Its leak-resistant cap helps prevent spills, and the wide-mouth opening makes it easy to consume your food.
"Better than advertised!" raved an impressed fan. "It says it will keep food hot or cold for 15 hours. I took my soup to work and ended up eating something else. When I got home from my 12-hour shift, I poured it in a plastic container and it was still hot 17 hours from the time it was filled."
