What exactly does our vacuum insulation save, you might ask. For starters, it saves the heat. It saves the cold. It saves time, it saves money, it saves waste. Most everyone knows what Zojirushi thermal insulated products are designed to do, but have you thought about how they really help you everyday? This month’s recipes take advantage of the thermal technology of our Food Jars, and while they do their amazing work, you’ll see how they’re helping your lifestyle in other ways, too.

We will also talk about some of our other products, and how their ability to retain temperatures through vacuum insulation can help you in more ways than you realize.

Zojirushi has told you for years that our thermal insulated bottles will keep your cold drinks icy cold and your hot drinks piping hot—and it’s always true, right? But do you know why it works and how it was invented? This technology is as old as the 19th Century, believe it or not.
A Scottish scientist named James Dewar, a researcher in the field of cryogenics, invented the first vacuum flask by enclosing one container into another and sealing them both at the neck. He drew the air out from between the containers to create a vacuum, an effective insulator. This kept the temperature stable and helped maintain the cold that he needed.
Dewar started to manufacture his vacuum bottle for commercial sale, but refused to patent it. Instead, a couple of German partners who made the bottles for him decided to market the invention and came up with the name Thermos, from the Greek threm, for their new company. Interestingly, the word “Thermos” eventually became so widely used that it was declared a generic trademark by 1963—just like “Kleenex”, “Xerox”, and “Dumpster”.
Amazing Invention
Mick proudly came to work to show off his new thermal bottle. “That’s pretty cool. What is it?” said his colleagues. “My new drink bottle—it keeps cold things cold and hot things hot for hours!” said Mick. “Neat!” said his friends. “So what did you bring?”
Mick beamed, “Two whole cups of coffee and an ice cream bar!”
