How do you keep those hot lunches from going cold? Easy! The trick is to put the hot meal into a hot container, not a cold one. So:
- First, bring water to boil in a kettle.
- Fill the thermos with boiling water and cover with lid. Let sit for at least 5-10 mins while you heat up your leftovers or prepare your soup, which should be nice and hot.
- Carefully lift lid off of thermos and empty water into sink.
- Quickly fill with lunch-du-jour and cover immediately with lid.
Voilà! My kids claim it keeps their lunches hot come lunch time.
