Before I was making insulated pitchers and bowls, I was an attorney. Which is simply to say that I spent the majority of my professional life living amongst disclaimers and caveats. And, yet, I now find myself needing to make definitive claims about how served®’s products perform over time. In what is equally uncomfortable territory, I’m also going back to physics, which I happily have not taken since high school.
All of served®’s products feature best-in-class technology for maximum temperature retention. The vessels are vacuum-insulated, copper-lined, and double-walled. Our Bowl lids are made of double-walled Tritan® plastic; we tried single wall, which some other companies have featured, but they simply didn’t have the temperature retention we needed. What does all of this mean in practice?
I can tell you this anecdotally. In served®’s vacuum-insulated Pitcher, your ice will still be frozen the next morning. In served®’s vacuum-insulated Large Serving Bowl, we took macaroni and cheese to my parents’ for Christmas Eve dinner. I took it out of the oven at 4:00, put it immediately into our Large Serving Bowl and put the lid on it. I then casually handed it to our eleven-year-old, who could easily handle it, since it stayed cool and was sealed tight. We put it on the kitchen counter upon arrival and had a cocktail. When we took the lid off at 6:15 for dinner, it was still piping hot!
But, didn’t that kind of beg the question? What is “piping hot?” What temperature do I eat my food at? How quickly does food cool in our products? Does “hot” mean the same thing to my family as it does to me? These are questions we set out to answer. What we can tell you? served®’s products do it better than anything on the market. Over the next posts, we’ll be outlining some more facts, figures, and other mind-boggling considerations on this topic.
